I want to update my post, I suffered for 6 months following my doctors recommendation of eat more fiber, which is the quickest way to destroy your gut, I also tried every remedy on here and nothing worked, after weeks of research, the solution is to go to a carnivore diet, yes that's right, more red meat. You see meat is digested in the small intestines, so when it gets to your colon it's a soft liquid, fiber on the other hand doesn't get digested at all, you might as well swallow a Brillo pad. And another thing is your bowel movements will be half the size as before. I've never felt better and just a couple weeks ago I was utterly help and depressed and suffering immense pain. Gob bless
Guys I found a cure but I stopped it because everyone's different. it's called the keto diet but I started seeing blurry n I freak out alot so I stopped but I had lasik surgery about 3 or 2 years ago so if something changes in my body I don't understand I freak out. my worst fear is to go blind so I stopped it but I had no symptoms.
75% fat 20% protein &5% carbs but u have to eat alot of vegetables so I add like 70 % veggies and alot of animal fat only with protein about 10% I know the percentage is not correct but that's what worked for me but I swear it helped. Now to find out whats going on with my eyes I'll see. Good luck guys
I have had 3 cases of diverticulitis in 3 months. Dr wanted to do surgery, but I decided to go the natural route. What has worked for me is combination of only very healthy (organic) food, the most easily digestible. I made soup stock with organic free range chicken, added veggies and let simmer with bone in for 12 hours. There are alot of vitamins in the soup and it's easy to digest. I also took supplements of digestive enzymes, probiotics (chewable and goat yogurt and goat kefir), aloe vera juice, and this all seemed to help. I also want to mention the importance of exercise as long as you are past the pain. I walk, lift light weights, ride stationary bike 5 days a week for 1 to 1 1/2 hours each time, but any exercise is good. I have lost 21 pounds since aug of '11 and I feel healthier than I have in years. I have been blessed to share my illness to health journey with several people and encourage them. I just started a couple days ago with adding raw veggies into my diet and it's going well. I still take the probiotics and the digestive enzymes to keep my body on track. Best wishes to all of you. Thank you for allowing me to share.
I was diagnosed with diverticulosis a number of years ago. I tried a natural product called AMP Molocure which is suppose to be very concentrated and made from Aloe Vera. I followed the directions for an entire year. It was quite expensive and I don't feel that it did much of any good for me. I think the key is to change your eating habits and cleanse your colon. Last year  I used a colon cleansing product available at herbdoc.com and while it seemed to help I still had periods where I would pass blood with bowel movements for 10 days after eating corn or a lot of peanut butter or strawberries, etc. Not giving up, a year later I did a second bowel cleanse and also a liver/gall bladder and kidney cleanse. I switched to a healthier diet which was vegetarian on weekdays and only ate meat on week-ends and then only natural or organic meats with no hormones or antibiotics. I also added oat bran to my diet twice a day and I drink fruit juice with green superfood [spirulina, chorella etc.]with frozen grapes (including the seeds) in a blender every morning. This seems to have worked! For the past 3 months I can eat corn and popcorn & all those other foods that caused me to bleed before with no problems. I feel no need of going for another colonoscopy - I know I'm better but I also know if I go back to eating processed foods and the rest of the typical American diet I can expect the diverticulosis to return. I'll be 61 in February 2008.
