What people are saying
"I am into my third month of the Ten Brothers Protocol and doing very well overall. Life is so much improved - I call it a miracle pretty much every day. I actually LOVE my food now. It's because I don't feel like I'm going to die the next day when I eat. I have so much energy and no brain fog."
"I finished the course ten days ago. It has helped me a lot with my horrible cramping and gas. Thank you so much!"
"I've been on the protocol for 4.5 months and today I felt so well I could cry. I have had steady energy all day long. I have not had this feeling since I had my daughter in 2017. I am eternally grateful to you. When I am completely well my dream is to become a nutritionist and help to spread your word. You are an absolute Angel to me. God knew what he was doing by giving you the tools to heal your daughter Ruth and thousands of others. I hope one day to give you a hug. I will continue to keep you posted."
"I am a 17 year old who was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when I was 15 years old. I had to have 40 cm of my small intestine removed because of the Crohn's. When my mother contacted Karen in the USA I was very underweight. I am 174 cm tall and before meeting Karen was 41.2 kg. Besides gaining weight, we wanted to avoid going on the medications that were recommended. It is 5 months since I began eating the way Karen recommends. I am now 54.8 kg. I have no symptoms of Crohn's and have not needed medications. We are grateful.
"My 10 year old daughter, Grace, had been constipated since birth. We had tried everything but nothing worked. Before starting the protocol that Karen gave us, Grace would have only one bowel movement every 3 days despite the Miralax laxative I was giving her. Her stool was hard and difficult to pass. Additionally, she was nauseated on a daily basis and often refused to eat because of the nausea. She had heartburn almost every day. She had a headache every other day. Within one week of starting the protocol, Grace's constipation, nausea, poor appetite, heartburn, and headaches were gone! The problems have not returned, and we are ecstatic!
"Before following Karen's plan, I was a mess! For the most part, all my life prednisone would take my ulcerative colitis into remission. One of my gastroenterologists told me I had become steroid dependent. He really didn't know what else to do so that is what we used. In 2017, I had a serious dental issues that went on for an entire summer. I as on antibiotics the whole time, all the while afraid of what the antibiotics were going to do to my ulcerative colitis. My fears materialized when I got C-Diff. I went through all the antibiotics (even the very last expensive one) but without success. With some research, I learned about fecal matter transplants (FMT) and had one done at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. I remained under the care of the gastro doctor there who performed the FMT. He was determined to get me off prednisone. We tried hydrocortisone, Canasa suppositories, Endocort suppositories, Budesinide--all to no avail.
Unfortunately, I was running to the bathroom upwards of 15 times a day with all bloody water, no stool at all. I was unable to work. My doctor told me that I was headed for Humira or Entyvio. Then I began Karen's plan. I am thrilled to report that I no longer have any problems with the ulcerative colitis. The doctor has been able to remove all my medications and my ulcerative colitis is in remission without using any medications, only diet!"
""I must thank you for your knowledge, experience and advice because, I have had normal functioning bowels with 1 to 2 bowel movements per day since Day 1 of Step 3. I am blessed and joyful that my GI track has returned to normal by adhering to the protocol."
"I was having diverticulosis flare-ups every day until I started your 10 Brothers protocol. I have competed the White Diet with only 4 flare-ups and been on the Remission Diet for 3 weeks with only one flare up (which was related to eating nuts too often). Thank you so much for all you do."
"Thank you for the a very interesting and miraculous treatment! After 4 days on the Ten Brothers protocol the bleeding in the colon stopped! That hadn't happened in years! Thank you."
"I started the protocol three months ago with nausea and fatty liver. Praising God and thanking you! Nausea went away within a day and the 7 inch lipoma on my leg has shrunk to 3 inches! My cholesterol has lowered 42 points from 231 to 189, triglycerides from 145 to 93, liver enzymes from 42 to 34. Glucose from 103 to 98 and ferritin from 294 to 122."
"I discovered your work about a year and a half ago and purchased your Ten Brothers course in May of 2020. I've struggled with Ulcerative Colitis and a host of its side effects since I was 14 (in 1994!). Your protocol has been nothing short of a miracle. I've always been a believer in food as medicine, but the standard 'no wheat, no dairy, no sugar' just never fully got me to a stable place. And I had been told for years to cut out beans!!! Long story short, I'm so happy I found your work."
"Since my diet was altered slightly by having more red meat, at 3x a day, I feel so much better now than I have in a very long time! About a week and a half after I started eating more red meat my dizziness went away. I also have much more energy now. The third remarkable thing is, my IBS is improving. I have normal one bowel movement days now. Whereas, over the last year and a half my body wouldn't stop eliminating until my entire intestinal tract was empty which would cause me 2-5 hours of running to the bathroom. I started keeping track of my normal eliminations, I have had 6 normal bowel movements in the last 18 days. I pray it will continue to improve. I wanted to update you on what's goin on with me and I want to thank you for your guidance."
"I have taken 4 of your courses thus far and find them very illuminating. You also came on my Decoding Health podcast. Thank you very much. Following the protocols I have healed: - Fibrocystic breast disease and after having Stage 2A ER/PR+ Breast Cancer in 2021, my ultrasounds just keep getting better and better. Most recently 3 of 5 of my cysts melted away according to my ultrasounds from now and 6 months ago. - Chronic allergies and chronic sinus pain and infections - Improved my histamine sensitivity, eczema/itchy foot skin condition - Improved digestion and liver and gallbladder issues"
"For the first time in my life I am shrinking. I have never lost weight fasting or even on Keto. It feels wonderful. My little girl's mouth sores are almost all gone!"
