Have several in-laws who suffer from diverticulitis attacks. I have them keep George's aloe vera juice on hand. It was recommended on a special diet for me after suffering from a parasite that damaged my intestines. It's distilled and tastes like water. It can cause loose stools so 1/4 cup in the AM and another before bed should be good for most. It's also important to stay hydrated (with electrolytes) if the diverticulitis medications cause diarrhea. Slippery Elm and Licorice help coat and calm stomach cramps. I hope EC allows the brand of the aloe as we've found other brands taste foul, or are too rough on the stomach.
