Robert's Written Testimonial

As a child I was rather small and it was thought that I needed to be a little bigger. I was sent to my grandparents Midwestern farm one summer, it was a beautiful place with horses to ride, lots of green grass, and lots of Grandma’s wonderful home cooking. I really enjoyed the vegetable garden and the fried chicken and of course the potato salad. Often, I would take the box of salt grandma used for baking and disappear into the garden. There I would bite into a tomato or watermelon and cover it with salt and keep eating. What wonderful taste treats they were. One evening I heard grandma telling Dad that if I kept eating salt like that, I would get sick. Grandma was a wise woman and was so right, and yes she locked the root cellar while I was there.

Over the years we progressed to processed foods and got away from the root cellar. With working Mom’s and fast food the 50’s and 60’s were not always healthy times. After working in the packaging industry, I realized that salt alone was not the only issue. Now with canned food loaded with preservatives we were slowly learning to read the labels. We soon learned that such things as the fat content and cholesterol content must be monitored. Suddenly we were concerned about hydration and were drinking water. There was little acknowledgement of the American problem with overeating and eating anything we desired. We were living to eat when we should have been eating to live.

Now many decades later, I found myself not only obese, but also very sick. As I lay in the cardiac ward of the local hospital for the third or fourth time I thought of my army nurse stepmother telling me how healing rice was, so I ordered rice.  Later that evening I met Dr Sprung and it seems this cardiac event was in fact a gastric situation. Dr sprung quickly and adeptly corrected this with surgery. He impressed me as a caring individual who was adept at traditional medical protocol but also was concerned with the cure or solution to the problems of his patients. In the years that followed he invited me to join his rice diet. I gladly accepted based solely on his caring and compassionate approach. Obviously I knew nothing of diet and exercise. I had tried every diet imaginable, and by now was in cardiac rehabilitation in the local hospital.

I came to the rice diet with the following medical conditions:

1. Quadruple bypass surgery, 5 heart catheterizations’ including 2 stints following two heart attacks. I was now among the first 150 people in the US to qualify for stem cell heart surgery.

2. Lymphatic non-Hodgkin’s B cell lymphoma in the perispinal muscles of the lumbar spine. Therefore, I was on Chemo when I started the rice diet!

3. While I was predisposed to type 2 diabetes it had now fully developed and I am Diabetic.

4. Low vision- with a 108-year-old corneal transplant to replace a diseased (kerataconus) cornea along with a cataract, I was now experiencing blurred vision presumably from the diabetes.

5. I was very obese placing a strain on the lumbar spine to the extent that traction was necessary.

6. Micro Hematuria of the kidneys along with a kidney cyst.

My first realization was that the Rice Diet is really not a diet! It is a change in lifestyle and one Grandma would be proud of. It includes many of the foods that are mentioned in the bible, such as fish, fruit, whole grains, berries, and many others. Finally, a sustainable diet that actually works and boy does it! After six weeks of the new lifestyle my results are as follows:
1. My angina is greatly reduced both as to frequency and severity and that even includes the exertional angina!

2. The blurred vision has improved greatly.

3. The diabetic medication has been reduced.

4. My blood sugar is back in the normal range. (it was 386)

5. The cancer is in remission.

6. I have not needed traction as the exercise and waist reduction strengthened the muscles.

7. My blood pressure medications have been reduced.

8. My blood pressure has gone from an average of 130/80 to an average of 115/65

9. My pulse has used to run in the 80’s but is now in the low 70’s or high 60’s

10. Yes I have lost weight and yes I have lost inches from the waist.
I feel infinitely better and have far more energy!!!!!!!!!!!

The rice diet is most definitely the right diet! Dr. Sprung is excellent with the medical supervision and he and his wife are excellent instructors.
You can change your life, just do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
