You now know how you will feel if you keep doing what you have been doing.

You suffer from some or all: cramping, bloating, acid scaring, inflammation, meal stagnation, diarrhea, constipation, bleeding, acid reflux, and periodic attacks and flare-ups… and the odds are, you are not getting better.


If you don’t know what to eat and you need help… If you know that antibiotics hurt your digestive flora, but you have to take them to get over attacks. You are not sure what you should and shouldn’t eat. You wonder “why me,” when those around you eat horribly and “get away with it.” We believe there is an answer! I am Mike Hohlweg and I invented a diet that may change everything for you.

How Can We Know If Mike’s Diet Theory is Correct?

I researched everything I could get my hands on and began to understand that acid damage might not only be a symptom of diverticulitis, colitis, and Crohn’s, but it might be the actual cause of symptoms. For me, the proof was when I worked in Asia for almost two years and my own diverticulitis symptoms “just went away.” When I returned to the U.S. my symptoms returned and my quality of life was horrible. When I again began eating a “Western” diet I became massively acidic. I began having belly aches, bloating, inflammation, throat size reduction, and reflux, especially at night. One day specifically I had some pizza and a beer for dinner. This meal put me in bed for 3 hours and my stomach inflated like a beach ball.

I had to find an answer, and for myself and many thousands of others… I did.

The answer to my pain, bloating, and constant acid production was to avoid a few specific foods and drinks. I found 7 foods in particular that seem to cause heavy stomach acid. These were the “villians” for anyone with a digestive disorder. I also created a chart listing over 100 foods, showing how to eat without creating excess stomach acid. The secret was that for almost every food, there was a “catalyst food” that could cause that meal to become a “high acid producer.” That part that took me over 4 years to research and create.

You also need to know that less than 16% of the earth’s population, suffers with almost 90% of all diverticulitis, colitis, and Crohn’s, and the sufferers are almost exclusively eating the modern “Western” style diet. To me, this supports the dietary solution to digestive disorder periodic symptom relief.

    What Your Doctors Are Taught !

    Doctors, nutritionists and gastroenterologists consider diverticulitis, colitis, and Crohn’s to be incurable. In fact, if you see a doctor, he/she may tell you that you will get worse over time. Doctors know that digestive diseases are simply a disease of inflammation.

    I’m not a doctor, but I have 40,000 happy digestive disorder customers.

    What Causes Digestive Diseases? I believe it is acid.

    It is all about learning to eat without causing over-acidification!

    Are you still eating the same way that got you sick in the first place? How is that working?

    As we proved earlier from the medical websites, doctors are taught that the cause of digestive issues is a mystery. I am not a doctor so no one told me these symptoms could not be reduced by diet.
