I can also voucher for this system. I only started it 3 months ago. I have GERD and some mild IBS and the only time I've had trouble with either is when I went off the plan. It also recommends limiting or eliminating sugary or refined foods.
To the skeptics of the value of "food combining", I would like to give my testimony that it absolutely works. The Sherry Brescia web site, materials, and daily newsletters are of tremendous benefit to sufferers of acid reflux, GERD, IBD (irritable bowel syndrome), diverticulitis, and other digestion problems, and the $39.95 or $49.95 cost of the materials is a great value when considered against a life of pain, discomfort, lack of sleep, lack of energy, over-medication, etc. From the basis of an endoscopy since I have had a burning throat after meals and difficulty swallowing sometimes, I was diagnosed with severe acid reflux and a hiatal hernia. My doctor prescribed PROTONIX but I did not want to take a stomach acid inhibitor, so I searched the web for a natural solution. I found Sherry Brescia's site, ordered the materials, and changed my eating habits. I've lost 20 pounds,
have had no burning throat except when I "went off the wagon" and did not follow the prescribed food combinations, had more energy, slept better than ever (my wife says that I don't snore now), and just feel better about myself and my health.
In a nutshell, what Sherry recommends, is to 1. Limit or eliminate processed foods 2. Limit the consumption of meat 3. Eat fruits by themselves and especially not at meals with meat 4. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables (I try to eat most of them raw) 5. Combine foods at meals so that digestion is healthy instead of over-producing stomach acid caused by eating proteins with carbohydrates and other improper combinations.
The intent of the program is to get our bodies to be pH ALKALINE instead of ACID. Alkalinity promotes good health, while acidity in our bodies is very unhealthy for many reasons. I don't know Sherry, receive nothing for this testimonial, but I strongly believe in it.

Best wishes for better digestion and no more pain,
