I am in the throes of healing my first bought of diverticulitis. No antibiotics for me but my this was my remedy:
Grapefruit Seed Extract (15 drops 3+ times per day), Triphala Herb (2 capsules 3x daily), Aloe Vera Juice (1/2 cup 4x daily), Restore4life (1 tsp. 3x daily), Collodial Silver (ACS200 - 10 sprays 3x daily), Probiotic (1 capsule, 1x daily), DGL (1 lozenge, 2x daily), daily vitamin & mineral supplement and clear liquid diet. Pain lessened within 24 hours; completely gone within 4 days. My bad - re-introduced a couple foods too quickly. Colonoscopy scheduled :-(
I have found a "big gun" for my diverticulitis. When the grapefruit seed extract and slippery elm isn't enough, and I start feeling the aching stomach signal that an attack is imminent, I have had perfect success with Colloidal Silver. Take two teaspoons and relief is within minutes. Thank God for relief from pain, because I'm a wuss and want to crawl in a hole when I'm in pain. The directions warn not to take this for more than 10 days. Hope this will help others who have suffered as I have.
