My Story of Survival
I was getting organised to do my ordinary posting but I am too excited about my book launch next week so I thought to share some snippets with you about the book and what people have said about it so far. If you want check it out, ‘My Story of Survival by Mimi Emmanuel‘ is on Amazon now for a short time at a discounted price.
Short Book Description
Ten ingredients only
Ten ingredients only for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Mimi lived on ten ingredients in total for a period of five years; for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every single day.
Her diet contains no gluten, eggs, sugar, fructose, grains, flours, nuts, seeds, meat, beans, soy, and no legumes. Initially, her diet contained no dairy either.
Mimi’s diet may benefit anyone who suffers from gut problems, allergies, food intolerances, sensitive gut or chemical sensitivities. This includes people who have been diagnosed with autoimmune conditions, Lyme, Lupus, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel and fibromyalgia.
One Size Fits All
The author’s One Size Fits All diet has a lot in common with the FODMAP diet plan which was developed by Sue Shepherd PhD and Peter Gibson MD, and is considered a revolutionary plan for managing IBS and other digestive disorders. But even this so called ‘must-have-survival-guide’ would not have worked for Mimi after she ruptured her appendix and developed septicaemia whilst suffering from antibiotic intolerance.
Oodles of Faith
The author reckons that the secret ingredient of ‘oodles of faith’ worked miracles. Read Mimi’s fascinating true story to find out what happened.
Snippet from the book
Just before we moved house in the year 2008, one of my daughters had a terrifying premonition, which came to her in a dream.
“Mum, it was one of those dreams where everything was crystal clear, just as I’ve had before, remember? And that dream came true too. It was terrifying; the doctor said to us ‘there is a two in three chance she won’t make it.’ He was talking about you, Mum, and he meant it. It was serious.”
At the time, all I could think to do was to calm my shaking and teary daughter, so I wiped her tears, looked her straight in the eyes and said, “I promise to be careful darling. Don’t you worry about a thing, God is in charge of us and our life is in his hands, always.”
It was less than two weeks after my daughter’s ‘nightmare’ that the three of us found ourselves in the emergency department with the surgeon telling my daughters that they wouldn’t operate on me, fearing that my survival rate would be less than 2 in 5 if they did so.
The warning that had come to my daughter in her ‘dream’ was that, at the time my survival was at stake, I shouldn’t take anything that would be offered to me. My daughter remembered and heeded this warning, which resulted in her refusing the morphine I was offered to cope with the relentless hurting of a ruptured appendix. Only after an abundance of prayer and a night of intolerable pain would my daughters yield and allow the nurse to give me a morphine injection.
END OF BOOK EXTRACT
Excerpt Foreword by Health Practitioner
Writing this foreword to Mimi Emmanuel’s little book has been challenging to me personally, as I felt I could not possibly endorse the concept of eating only ten foods to obtain all the nutrients necessary for sustaining life.
However, since I first met Mimi some six years ago, I have witnessed how she has slowly started to regain her health through a process that could be described as an experiment in survival …
So we have Mimi’s OSFA diet, perhaps the ultimate low-reactive diet plan. It may be a good place to start when no other answers seem forthcoming …

At the end of your digestive rope? Hang on, you are not alone and have a friend who can help! This is an honest-to-goodness real story of one woman’s grit and self-determination when faced with an over-whelming medical conundrum as to why her body was on revolt.
You can’t be the master of a sinking ship without becoming a master builder; becoming a student on how to patch and re-build. Mimi Emmanuel learned how to craft her own survival diet out of just a very few ingredients. While she hopes that none of her readers would ever have to follow her diet, she shares this journey to show that there are answers to be found. There are times when the standard elimination diet is far too broad for those suffering from a fried immune and digestive system.
She shares the spartan but nourishing diet she had to follow for FIVE years as well as how she has tippy-toed into a more varied Phase 2. I especially like her “useful facts” that she places throughout the book to not only make her case as to nutritional needs, but they also spark a deeper interest for further study and personal application. I will most definitely recommend this book to those I teach about diet and nutrition.
Her shocking experience has triumphantly given anyone who struggles with food intolerances a great starting point for getting your diet back on track at a time when helpful information is hard to find. I wish this book had been written 20 years ago when I would have put it’s no nonsense information to good use. I was so intrigued with her story, I read it in one sitting.
ABOUT THIS BLOG – We’re researching the truth of living forever according to GOD’s Holy Word; Sola Scripture. Popular opinion tells us that everyone who ‘believes’ and has ‘faith’ will go to heaven. Is this true? I decided to ask the prophets about the truth of it all.
