I've suffered with Diverticulitis for a number of years now as it comes and goes in severity. About 18 months ago, I had a particularly bad bout and it was time to see the doctor. He gave a course of antibiotics which I admit did make me feel worse before I felt better. I'm certainly not a fan of antibiotics but occasionally they are needed.

Obviously, a good course of high quality probiotics are indicated after using antibiotics... and of course anything that is going to improve digestive health with this condition is a positive thing. I personally like the Odos Choice as there are 30 billion viable organisms per capsule, about 8 different strains and they have to be kept in the fridge which for some reason makes me feel more confident about it - but I digress.

I have always been a fan of Aloe and I spend alot of time in France. They have a drink there in most shops that is basically just water and aloe and everyone drinks it for their overall gut health (presumably because of a rich food diet). I found though that it works miracles if you just use it (well Aloe in general) all the time, rather than when you are feeling under the weather as it's also a powerful preventative measure rather than a treatment.

I get very few problems these days as a result (although Aloe isn't the only thing I use every day but it one of the main things).

Yay for Aloe Vera - which tastes nice and sounds nice. :)

I have been taking Aloe Vera juice (from Amazon) - two or three "shots" a day, with papaya tablets after every meal. I also take L-glutamin 500 mg a day. Since May I have been off the Flagyll and Cirpro. So far it's working and I thank this website. No more popcorn or fried chicken:( But for me - better than the antibiotics! ) and I still can have my wine:)
