Anonymous Heals, Ulcerative Colitis (pancolitis), UK
I had ulcerative colitis (Pancolitis) for 3 months. I experienced abdominal pain, diarrhoea, bleeding
and mucus in stools. I would have urgency to go to the toilet. The gastroenterologist said I should
take medication and ulcerative colitis cannot be reversed. I did not take any medications, as they
have severe side effects. Instead, I searched for alternative options. I was very happy when I found
Shamiz and Shukul inspirational videos on Youtube. I was convinced the vegan diet would cure me
from ulcerative colitis too.
I was very pleased with the program, as I could book a meeting with them any day of the week. They
were very helpful, kind and understanding. They provided a lot of information about nutrition and
healing. Also, I enjoyed drinking the fruit juices, smoothies, eating steamed vegetables and potatoes.
I experienced detox symptoms initially. My abdominal pain reduced after a couple of weeks.
Inflammatory markers and full blood count readings were in the correct ranges after a couple of
weeks and they have maintained in the normal ranges. My digestion is back to normal now and I
have no abdominal pain.
I have now cured ulcerative colitis with the vegan diet. I am very grateful for the support and
guidance of Shamiz and Shukul.
Anonymous Heals, Migraines & Ulcerative Colitis
I started with IBS symptoms 21 years ago. I fluctuated between constipation and diarrhoea. When I had diarrhoea it was so painful and I would be on the loo for four hours. Any holidays would only be a few hours away by car and we would only leave when we could get straight into the accommodation.
In 2010 I had 2 daughters and no life, I spent most of my time on the loo. I had had colonoscopies over the years but these were all clear. I decided to go to a nutritionist, I sent a stool sample off to a lab in Germany where they confirmed I had candida, in fact they said they had never seen such high levels of it. So I started on the candida diet which consisted of no fruits at all, lots of meat and a little veg. Dairy was also allowed. My symptoms did clear a little but not enough.
Fast forward 6 years and not much has changed. One day i started to have diarrhoea after everything I ate, although I have always bled and had mucus this all became so much worse. I literally lived on the loo. I felt so so ill. I went to the doctors who referred me on. I had a colonoscopy which showed a little inflammation and some ulcers. They put me on steroid suppositories. These worked well for two weeks and then I was getting horrendous back and hip aches, so I stopped them. Oral steroids were no better.
The doctors were convinced I had Crohns due to my symptoms, I had an MRI which was horrendous as had to be stopped for me to have diarrhoea. This didn’t show much, They then wanted me to swallow the pill cam.
However while this was going on I found Shamiz and Shukul on Youtube. I watched them for hours and was convinced this was the way to go.
I joined their programme last August. The support they offer is amazing. You can book meetings with them whenever needed/wanted. They work over the weekend and also you can email.
They sent me lots of info and talked me through everything. They kept a close eye on me and three months later I started the healing diet. I’m not going to say this was easy because it wasn’t. I had been having detox symptoms throughout, but they were manageable, I struggled more with what I was allowed to eat as I don’t like potatoes or steamed veg. However I got through it. I did become anaemic during the diet but I have always bordered this and was anaemic when I was a meat eater. Shamiz advised on some iron to take and what to eat more of. I glad to say my iron levels are pretty good now.
Not only do they help with diet but they also promote having a healthy mind. I had many toxic relationships with family that were destroying me inside. With their advice I have managed to clear this all and now have happy and healthy relationships with family.
The specialists were not keen to discharge me when I asked to be, even though they could see how well I was. They only agreed to do it if my inflammation test was good. Im over the moon to say my levels were only 20, anything under 50 is normal. They have never been so low.
To date I am really well. No longer have bouts of diarrhoea, I recently went on a trip to Scotland on an aeroplane with no private loo for most of the trip of two days. We had an amazing time and I would never have been able to do this before. We have just booked tickets to Australia next year which is a dream come true.
For 17 years I have been taking two lots of medication to control migraines, and when I did still get migraines I would then have to take another pill which left awful side effects, I have reduced taking six pills a night to only taking two pills and I will slowly come off them as well. Our lives are so different now. The whole family are on board with being vegan and my 13 year old daughter is now so healthy and follows most of what I eat. We have learned so much about the way to eat. We have had to buy another big fridge for the amount of fruit and greens we buy.
The support and program Shamiz and Shukul have is life changing. They will always hold a special place in my heart as they have changed mine and my families lives to which I will eternally grateful.

Alex, (ulcerative colitis), Germany
"When I was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2015, it all was pretty surreal. I then started standard treatment, with immunosuppressants etc.. I was in remission for a little bit more than one year until symptoms started to come back. I then looked on the internet for an alternative approach and found Shukul & Shamiz. I watched a couple of their videos on YouTube and thought I have to give this a try. The first few weeks I struggled a bit with getting used to the new diet and lifestyle. It was both mentally and physically challenging.
Now 6 months later I'm completely free of any Ulcerative Colitis symptoms thanks to the help of Shukul & Shamiz! from High Carb Health"
BJ, (ulcerative colitis), India
First of all I would say congrats to all of them who did fight and healed with digestive issues.
My name is BJ and I am basically from Indian origin. I had issues with my stool from DEC 2015 where I used to see mild blood and mucus and pain in the rectum initially. Later I went to doctor and got misdiagnosed for hemorrhoid and was on some antibiotics for it. As time passed by, my condition did not improve and I had to visit a doctor again after coming back to US in 2016 AUG. I had to go with Sigmoidoscopy initially and came to know that I have Ulcerative Colitis. I had minimum knowledge on what Ulcerative Colitis was but after doing research online, I got scared after reading the scary stuff. I was on minimum dosage of Apriso and Uceris for 3-6 months. My condition did not improve and had to go with colonoscopy in 2016 DEC to get my complete colon examined. Situation was not getting better with me and I did not want to go with steroids. Fortunately I came across Colitis & Crohns program videos online. It was really a sight to relief and I spent lot of time going through all the videos. I consulted Shamiz and Shukul and have them help me with my condition. After being on proper diet, rest and counselling my condition improved slowly. I started my program with these guys in FEB 2017 and by the end of 4 months my stool count dropped to 4-5 and after 6 months I was on 3-4 with no blood. There was an excellent support from these guys at each and every stage of my healing. In fact the support and motivation I received by talking to these guys was eternal. I am really thankful to these guys for helping me out with my condition.
Now my diet is completely changed. Post healing I prefer to take apple+celery juice in morning with 3 bananas , blueberry+strawberry+dates+banana smoothie in lunch , and potatoes cooked with other vegetables/greens in dinner with carrot/beet juice. As per the saying "Health is wealth", I really got to know the meaning of this and a great knowledge on how to combine the foods/fruits and mainly what is the best thing for our body to be healthy.
I will never forget these guys in my life for the help and support they provided me to get out of condition. I bless you guys long life and hope you guys keep your good work in healing and saving many more lives.

Tishani, (Ulcerative colitis), Melbourne, Australia
Dearest friends ,
When I had my first Skype meeting I was petrified, scared of being vulnerable and weak or exposed to yet another person who would let me down with this horrible disease I hated having.
I admit I was sceptical, anxious and doubtful but I knew this was my last chance before the medical world would bring the big guns out on me. So then I met you and Shukul. I had a few tell me they where worried but I trusted you guys from the start. You where real, you weren't endorsing anything or being extremists. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping people like me. For dedicating your lives to give others a life after colitis.
Never underestimate the work you do and how it changes people's lives. You have good genuine hearts. You both have a really special place in me and my parents heart
Im grateful to have made great friends

Anjali Verma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Melbourne, Australia
I had been living with IBS for almost 20 years now where my conditioned got worsened in all these years and I kept excluding more and more food from my diet due to growing food intolerance. which merely started as bloating. I was hardly able to put any food down and can merely digest banana, and potatoes. My visits to GP and specialist bear no improvement. Doctors even said they do not know why this happen to some people and told me this is the condition I must live with it as there is no cure since I didn’t respond well to any medication. I survived on iron infusions for last 6-7 years as I wasn’t getting any nutrients from food and neither was able to take any vitamin pill orally that would go through my digestive system. I’m working full time, travelling, hectic job with long hours and struggled to keep the pace with low levels energy all these years.
During all these years, I had tried almost every therapy before like naturopathy, allopathy, homeopathy, alternate medicines etc. I have lived in UK, Singapore, India, Australia and tried treatments everywhere but nothing ever worked. Have been through colonoscopy once and endoscopy once in every 2-3 years to get checked if my condition has further worsened.
I came to know of your program through a friend of mine who referred me to Sharan. Sharan advised me to see High Carb Health since I had digestive issues. During my first consultation, I thought it’s just another therapy which is not going to work just like everything else I tried before and had not much hope at all. But I must say felt good at the end of the 30-minute session.
You have been very approachable during the course of treatment and with regular consultations you guys monitored my diet very closely and taught me a great deal on how to properly combine foods (improving my digestion), how much sleep I require, how many calories to eat to get the energy that I need, and how the Acid/Alkaline balance can me maintained which is also one of the key things. My digestion improved, my sleep improved, I have more energy than before following your advice.
I like how well you look after people you treat. You are certainly passionate about brining change in people and it shows from your style of working.
Where I have not been able to tolerate any fruit except banana before, after following your advice I have been able to eat certain foods that used to cause discomfort if eaten. I was eating them wrong way all my life. You made me realise how much the body has power to self-heal without any medications.
You have a holistic and practical approach where you explained why doing certain things help how our body get the required energy which is generated from eating rights foods at right time and regulating our sleep pattern (as I also suffered from chronic sleep fatigue).
I not have seen doctor for about a year now. My advice to anyone who is suffering from digestive issues is that your program certainly worth giving it a try. This is coming from someone who has tried almost every therapy on the earth across so many countries. There are no medications here, the body can heal naturally without any side effects of medicines. Medicines only hide the system whereas your approach targets the root cause of the disease/condition. This just tells how effective your way of treating people is no nasty regular colonoscopy/endoscopy which also amounts to lots of money with no benefit to your health and not to mention the discomfort you live with every day. Also, you just not cure digestive issues but entire body as whole.
I wish I had met you guys long back.
Thank you so much

KENNY HONNAS, (ULCERATIVE COLITIS), TEXAS, USA
Freshman year of college my entire life was turned upside down. I was in the middle of my first season as a member of the Division III Wheaton College Football team when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I had been experiencing rectal bleeding for weeks along with uncontrollable bowel movements and more than one embarrassing public accident before I finally worked up the nerve to see a doctor....
The first thing I did after my release was visit my favourite greasy fast food joint and ate spicy buffalo wings. I had no idea that was the worst thing I could possibly do for my health because every doctor was adamant that diet had nothing to do with the disease. Over the course of the next six months I couldn't seem to get any better than simply being able to get by, no matter what medicine they tried to put me on. Nothing worked, not drugs, steroids, or even FMTs were able to bring me relief from the constant loose and watery stools or putridly foul gas....I was desperate. At this point in my life I was ready to try anything to stop the pain, embarrassment, and increased risk of cancer. I contacted High Carb Health and the rest is history. They were beyond helpful. Patient, prompt, and clear. Every single question I had, which were several, were answered quickly and in full detail.
I felt amazing and was only improving every day. I returned to Wheaton in perhaps the greatest shape of my life and played one more season of college ball before hanging up the cleats to pursue my newest passion, plant based living and nutrition. It has now been over seven months since I have transitioned to this lifestyle and I feel vibrant, strong, and healthy. I am currently pursuing my passion for plant based living by studying dietetics and nutrition so that someday I can hopefully help change someone's life the way Shukul and Shamiz have helped change mine. If you are struggling with some sort of illness, especially a digestive one, I strongly urge you to sign up for their program and follow their guidance, they will do everything in their power to help you heal. High Carb Health for the win!

Carla Hardie, (crohns disease), Australia
September 2010 (23 y/o) was the first time that I learnt I had ulceration in two parts of my colon, which was most likely the early days of Crohns due to the 'patchy' and 'deep' nature of the ulcers. It was mild, so no medication was prescribed. 2011 brought about my first 'disturbing' flare up, and it was then that I was prescribed anti-inflammatory suppositories. After that came a period of nothing, only for it to come back again even stronger in 2015/16 on and off. Lucky enough, I was never hospitalised, but I still met my 'crisis point' in July/Aug 2016. I was eating smaller meals to avoid uncomfortable symptoms of dis-ease and bloating, seeing a naturopath who prescribed me expensive herbal tablets and elixirs, and incidentally, I lost a fair bit of weight, vitality and emotional sanity. This was just before signing up with High Carb Health.
Making the decision to take control and treat myself and my state of health in the most natural way possible with no drugs or potions was the best decision I ever made. I knew for a long time that a plant-based whole-foods diet was significant to me, (having turned plant-based in early 2014) but didn't know how to go about it! This is where High Carb Health were the guys that gave me the voice of reason, comfort, knowledge, information and advice to truly understand what was going on with my body and how I could support it properly. Their encouragement and kind words also helped me to keep on going when I experienced moments of doubt and emotional stress.
Generally, we're not used to trusting our body and its functions. The most logical knowledge when it comes to healing is not common knowledge, and instead, we find ourselves in places where we are impatient, want results instantaneously and turn to 'quick fix' medications and procedures. Slow down, take a few breaths, be inspired by others, reach out, let people help you, give it a go, open your eyes and enjoy the incredible healing process. It only gets better from here!
Thanks again guys - words can't describe how happy I am to have met you. Keep on inspiring :)

Rob DiCenso, (Ulcerative Colitis), Ontario, Canada
"Recovery from Ulcerative Colitis -- In 2009 I was an active Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor trying to make the transition towards Mixed Martial Arts when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The doctors didn't give me much hope. They said the usual thing with this condition: "It's incurable," "You'll have this for life", etc. They seemed to have two solutions. Surgery and medication for life. I didn't like those options so I started looking for a solution on my own. I found a book that promoted this lifestyle and I managed to avoid surgery following it's guidance. But I eventually failed on the it because I was making key mistakes. At the time, I thought the diet didn't work so I moved on looking for other solutions.
After years of going through various diets and my health going up and down like a roller coaster, I found Shamiz's story on YouTube. I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive at first but once I spoke with them, my impression was they genuinely cared and wanted to help.
Once I signed up, they were always available to answer all of my questions and concerns. We chatted regularly about my progress and which direction to go next. very soon after enrolling into this program, I was able to get off all my meds and supplements (Was spending lots of $$ on them). My Diarrhea and bleeding has stopped and I don't get the urgency to go to the bathroom anymore. The experience restored my health and changed my life. And today, my health continues to improve everyday. I don't feel restricted in any way, I feel I can eat until I am full and I'm getting all the nutrients I need to live a long healthy life.
I highly recommend working with these guys. They have so much experience and they used it to change my life and many others."

Anita, (Ulcerative Colitis), Germany
I had been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis almost five years ago. And even though I was lucky enough that a very low medication had been successful in keeping the symptoms in check for all of the following years, I eventually started researching alternatives to treat and possibly even heal this condition naturally. Having been told by my gastroenterologist that there was no known cure for this disease to date and that it had nothing to do with diet or lifestyle/stress, I just didn't want to be dependent on drugs for the rest of my life without any guarantee of my condition not getting worse anyway.
During my research, I then found Shamiz's success story on YouTube and immediately bought the book "Self Healing Colitis & Crohn's" by David Klein. The ideas in this book really made sense to me. So I stopped taking my meds. But, since the book is so detailed, I got totally overwhelmed with what exactly I should be doing next and how I should be eating. So, I decided to get help from Shamiz and Shukul, and the rest is history. :) They gave me clear instructions on what I should ideally be doing and eating, were always available whenever I had questions, and checked in with me once a week via Skype.
I have to admit though, the diet change was not always easy – even though I had been vegan for several months before starting the program and had also started to more and more replace processed foods with whole-foods. But the almost immediate improvement of my bowels kept me going because I knew I was on the right track. Now, I'm very happy to say that I'm (still) 100% medication-free as well as symptom-free and still vegan. :) I've also kept the habit of eating only fruit for breakfast (for the most part) and enjoy eating 100% "clean" meals every now and again. My body definitely feels the difference! The really amazing gift though is that I now know what I can do if the symptoms ever came back, which is really priceless and reassuring information!
Dev Hirani, (Ulcerative Colitis), UK
In the last 6 months I have gone through a transformational change I have healed my Ulcerative Colitis and am drug free. It all started when the doctor who I had listened to for 4 years, taking their prescribed drugs, told me the only way to cure my Ulcerative Colitis was to have a surgery and remove my colon (yes a big shock to the system).
At the same time they continuously told me that the disease is not triggered by food or lifestyle, which I never believed, and this time the shock finally woke me up to start doing something for myself. I believed it was time to take ownership of this issue and try alternative therapy.
I had been blessed to have been introduced to the Colitis and Crohns program. Both brothers had valuable information and were extremely patient to ensure I believed and followed the program. It was so helpful to have Sham who had been through the same program so he understood the pain in the journey and was able to connect and give me positive energy whenever I needed. Even if we were based on opposite ends of the world they were easily accessible.
I am grateful to have met these 2 superstars that are now dedicated to serving others. I would highly recommend you take up their free initial consultation, that half hour could be the gateway for a Colitis and Crohns free world you are looking for!

MRS. Kelkar (Ulcerative colitis), India
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2011. It was a living hell as I experienced rectal bleeding, diarrhoea, bloating, loss of appetite, headaches and never felt energetic. I was put on a lot of different medicines to bring my Colitis symptoms under control. These included steroids, immunosuppressants, enemas etc. But nothing seemed to work as my flare ups would not go. My Gastroenterologist would prescribe me heavy medication during each consultation without any discussion of life style and dietary changes. He assured me that this is an incurable disease and that I can only maintain or be in remission with medicines until I'm alive.
I was at my wit's end when I finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel. That's when I met these two super brothers, Shukul and Shamiz. They were God sent for me. It was first time in four years that someone was talking about curing and healing this horrible disease. And that too by eating the right food! Since the day I signed up they were available at any time to help me out. After a detailed and thorough consultation I was put on a plan to stop my medication within the first 20 days. It took me only one liner email to book them for a Skype call each time. Moreover they work all 7 days of the week which I have never seen anywhere else. They patiently answered all my questions and concerns.
Along with the plant based diet consultations, Shamiz was specially very helpful in restoring my emotional confidence to deal with the ailment. I was now slowly restoring my health and feel energetic on a clean diet. Let me tell you it was not an easy process at all however these two were always on my side virtually (we were on opposite ends of the world) giving me the emotional support and correct guidance at each step.
I am thankful to God to have met them and highly recommend them to anyone who wants to change their life for good.
Unanimous, Ulcerative Colitis
I suffered from the Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Ulcerative Colitis for almost a year, with several flare ups even when on medications. I was always told by doctors that there is no cure for this health condition, therefore one day browsing on Youtube I found Shamiz's video and his testimonial about how he was cured from colitis, I did not hesitate in contacting High Carb Health straight away.
The 3 month journey went by so quickly and I had all the necessary support from High Carb Health via Skype and emails, I also had explanations to my doubts and fears. If you’re about to start this journey you truly have to believe in yourself as you have a self healing healing body which is optimised when exposed to the right food.
High Carb Health taught me how to eat for long term sustainable health, this is how I was able to heal this medically incurable condition (Ulcerative Colitis).
It is possible to follow this lifestyle and thrive, at first I thought it could be too restricted but it’s just a matter of getting used to it, people only drink milk and eat meat because they were taught this way and are used to it. If you were raised on a whole foods plant based lifestyle you would not think it is ‘too restricted’ so believe in yourself and in the capacity of these two professionals, If I made it you can make it as well. Be happy! :)
Milan Kanji, Weight-loss & Health (30 day challenge), nz
After finishing my 30 day challenge, my body has never felt better. During the 30 days I lost kgs quite easily. I would like to personally thank Shukul Kachwalla, Shamiz Kachwalla & David Cordtz for introducing me to this new lifestyle change. I feel a lot more active and happy after changing to this Plant-based lifestyle. The best part is that it does not feel like a diet at all because I am eating a lot more healthy and raw food products than I normally would. I started this change to improve my physical health and lose weight . I can happily say that I have achieved these goals and I will definitely be carrying on with the plant based lifestyle. I have lost 12kgs and am feeling happier than ever! At the time of writing this, I have been on this high carb plant based diet for 9 weeks now. Thanks team for the support!
Brett Duffy, Personal Trainer (30 day challenge), Australia
"Im almost finished my 30 day challenge with 2 days to go. I will be writing a testimonial about the journey and what I plan on doing when I finish. I just wanted to say that I’ve never felt this good, I’m not bloated anymore and don't feel bloated after a big meal. It took me a little bit to get used to as my stomach was too small for the amount of food I needed for this lifestyle, so my calories were pretty low at the start but by the 2nd week with the help of Shukul I was eating between 2500 to 3000 calories a day and I was still able to lose 6kg! I would like to thank Shukul Kachwalla and the High Carb Health crew with the help and also DC Cordtz for the motivation and seeing how I was going through the process. Also if it wasn't for DC I wouldn’t have met Shukul and this would have never happened. I started at 84.8 and weighed in at 78.8. So you might think that its hard at the start but keep at it and your true potential will reveal it self and knowing its doing wonders for your heath and fitness was else do you want".
Kate McCullough, Digestive Pain & discomfort, NZ
It all started in early 2015 when about once a month I would get really bad diarrhea and stomach pains. I thought I might be gluten intolerant so I went gluten free for months with still no improvement. I decided to be extra sure I wasn't allergic to gluten by going to the doctor in July 2015 to get an allergy test for gluten, but it came back negative. The doctors had no idea why I had all this stomach pain and did not know how to help me. So all year my digestion was just not right and the amount of times I was getting diarrhea and stomach pains just kept increasing until January 2016 when it got really bad. I was going to the toilet 5-6 times a day, everyday, I had the worst stomach pains every time I ate and I had no idea what was going on. I went to the doctors again to try find an answer and then sent me to get some blood tests and stool tests which all came back fine so i had no more answers as to what was causing my digestives issues.
After suffering for a month of this I decided I needed to try get some other help, so I and saw a Ayurveda consultant, who put me on a strict diet and told me to cut out a lot of foods and mainly eat cooked foods including lots of rice, lentils/dhal and cooked vegetables and to only have 1 piece of fruit a day which had to be cooked. I found this very difficult to follow but i was determined to get better so followed what she said. But I only got worst, the stomach pains increased, my bowel movements increased, I felt so tried and low on energy all the time I just didn't know what to do anymore. My body was clearly telling me that it was not happy eating this way and something need to change.
Then I met Shukul Kachwalla at a vegan potluck in Auckland and found out he had a nutrition workshop coming up in a week and I knew I just had to go. I went to the workshop run by him and his brother and learnt an incredible amount of knowledge and took everything they said on board and left with confidence they they could help me get better. I followed what they said, which was mainly raw till 4, as many raw fruits and vegetables as I desired during the day, and cooked vegetables/starches for dinner, while avoiding grains to really give my digestions a break. Just after doing this for 2 weeks everything had changed. I had no more stomach pains, i was only going to the toilet 1-2 times a day, I had all my energy back and I felt like a new person again. Its amazing how just simply eating how our bodies are really designed too everything just naturally falls back into place. I can pretty much eat everything now with no problem, but still feel my best eating as much raw fruits and vegetables as I wish, while limiting the amount of legumes and high fatty foods. I will treasure the knowledge they taught me forever and know they will always be willing to help me if I had anymore issues.
So I just wanted to say thank you so so so much Shukul and Shamiz for sharing your knowledge with me and helping me turn my life around for the better, I am forever thankful for what you guys do to help me and so many other people like me. If anyone is having any sort of digestive issue or just wants to know how to live a happier healthier life I definitely recommenced seeing these guys!!!
Thanks again for all your help - Kate

"I was a sufferer of unsightly & painful acne. The recommendation to try out High Carb Health did NOT DISAPPOINT!
Shukul & Shamiz are truly incredible. They are kind-hearted, professional, and really know their stuff. I have never had that level of concern for my health from any doctor/dermatology specialist, and I have been to, too many in my time. Instead of throwing cases of different medicines to try they actually ADDRESSED THE ISSUE. This acne has NEVER cleared on it's own or for this long. As well as a difference in my skin, I've also overcome some more personal health issues and managed to lose 4kgs without really trying!
After going to many different doctors and trying many different drugs I just wanted a solution to my acne that was actually going to work. That's when I reached out to High Carb Health and committed to a high carb, low fat vegan diet. After years of quick fixes and quicker returns I finally did something that was a) productive b) healthy for my body and c) produced long term results. As you can see I still have a little scarring and the occasional spot but I would much rather this than rely on medication and experience more inflammation/redness/breakouts whenever my prescription ran out. I am thankful for those times because it taught me not to place so much value on my appearance. Not only did I heal my acne, but also my horrendous digestive issues and PCOS symptoms. Their unique business model and reasonable price are bonuses too! Would recommend 100%! Cheers Sham and Shuk"

"I decided to contact High Carb Health after discovering the power of diet to reverse Ulcerative Colitis. I was suffering from digestive pains and low energy and found it difficult to work in a physical job as I was feeling exhausted most of the time.
I found High Carb Health to be very helpful and thorough. After a few weeks of following their guidance & advice, I felt much better, my digestive pains and low energy started to fade.
A few months on I am almost back to normal my digestive issues are much better and my energy levels are improving and would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to improve their health through diet!
Thanks again for your help" - Deane Trethewey

"I would like to take this opportunity to convey my heartfelt thanks to Shukul & Shamiz for their help and guidance in curing my Ulcerative Colitis. I had been suffering from Ulcerative Colitis for approximately 8 months before I came across the service provided by Shukul & Shamiz. Having approached them via another similar service, I was soon confident that I had made the right decision to go with them.
They are both extremely knowledgeable and have a very friendly manner over web chat. During the initial part of my recovery I was able to contact the both of them quite frequently as I was providing daily updates on my health and wanted as much feedback as possible. They were always available for when I needed them and gave me the confidence needed to keep going. They also pro-actively took an interest in my health for the few times where I wasn’t in contact with them as much as I should have been.
I am now completely rid of Ulcerative Colitis and would highly recommend the service provided by Shukul & Shamiz."
Thanks guys. Jatinder

"If you are having trouble with your health this diet program is the right thing for you. Autoimmune conditions, diabetes etc all can be cured with this diet. Initially it can be frustrating and you will have pitfalls but you have to endure it.
I have beaten colitis and have experienced the power of fruit. This diet took me away from drugs and got me better so try it yourself and make sure that it works. Fruit up."
DHARINI MARINKOVICH, (ACNE), NZ
I have been on and off the heavy drug Isotretinoin for the past 2-3 years which comes with many risks including the most disturbing side effect of severe birth defects (if you get pregnant). This did clear up my skin but as soon as the drug left my system it would relapse to horrendous acne.
My skin is not perfect yet but I have been off the medication for two months and my face is not inflamed and sore and only has a small amount of acne. Friends and family are commenting that my skin looks great and healthy. I also feel like I have a clearer head and more energy. I don't crave sweet desserts anymore because the high carb low fat vegan lifestyle is naturally sweet and very filling, no starvation required!
Shukul and Shamiz have been very supportive and knowledgeable, they explain the science behind nutrition and disease simply but will go in more depth if you want them to.
Emilee clark (IBS), nz
I worked with Shukul and Shamiz for 3 months to try cure my IBS that I've struggled with for over 3 years. I have tried every medicine, diet and medical cleansing procedure possible and had no success. It wasn't until a friend recommended High Carb Health to me that I saw a change in my body.
It has been one of the hardest things I've ever done and put my body through mentally and physically and I wouldn't have been able to get through it without their guidance and support. I'm still working on my healing journey but I'm a lot closer than I used to be and for that I will be forever grateful.
Matthew Armstrong (Digestive pain), NZ
I had been having on-and-off stomach problems for a while. I would get pain that would last for most of the day, if not longer. Working with High Carb Health has really helped me understand how the digestive system works and how to eat to make sure I don't have digestive discomfort.
Shukul was a brilliant adviser. I threw many questions at him over the month (some more than once), both via email and during our meetings, and he was always happy to answer them all in a clear, honest way. He also managed to surprise me with a lot of his facts.
It was great to get that clarity on what to aim for with my plant-based diet. It has made my decision-making a lot simpler and easier.
Lastly, I haven't had the usual big problems with my stomach over the course of the month, and Shukul assures me it will stay that way if I stick to the plan. I don't doubt it for a second.
Thank you for all your help!
Tegan Prescott, (improved overall health), NZ
I couldn't recommended anybody else more experienced than these 2 brothers.
They were both so helpful with guiding me through a whole foods plant based lifestyle. They also taught me a lot on how to properly combine foods (improving my digestion), how many calories to eat, and the Acid/Alkaline balance. My bloating disappeared, my sleep improved, I have loads more energy and my face is clearing up, following their advice.
My knowledge and understanding of diet and health has improved and I feel more confident about being on a whole foods plant based lifestyle. Thank you for all the support during the month I had with you.
Shukul and Shamiz both also helped me with my baby daughter Maia. Her digestion improved significantly and she is eating a lot more. She is now so much happier and sleeps loads better. Thanks guys appreciate your help.
