GSE and N-A-G for Diverticulitis
Peter (Castle Rock, CO) on 08/05/2021
I have had diverticulitis bouts for years. I have been in the hospital 2 times, and bedridden many more times. I have tried many, many remedies. Some of these remedies showed a bit of promise, but never really gave the feeling that they directly addressed my issues. Notably, probiotics for preventive. Oil of oregeno for symptoms was my most effective combatant against my issues, until one day I stumbled on a huge string of posts about using GSE as well as NAG to combat Diverticulitis. That day I ordered NutriBiotics GSE and Jarrow N-A-G. 2 days later, during one of my worst infections I started taking both of these products. By the next morning, the difference was night and day. So much so that I was intending on going to the hospital if I wasn't better. Since then, I have used GSE and N-A-G to address Diverticulitis infections with 100% success for years!
I should note that Both the hospital resident, as well as my primary care told me that I would likely need surgery "Due to the progression of my Diverticulitis". Not the clinical version of what they said, but you get the point.
My personal treatment:
During infection/flare up: 2 250mg GSE pills twice a day, 1 700mg N-A-G twice a day.
When I feel a weird pain in my gut that may lead to something worse: 1 250mg GSE pill once a day for 3 days
For me, I feel that N-A-G is less important. GSE is the big player here. But I swear by the combo when I need to stamp out the issue ASAP.
Just thought I would share something that has changed my life and IMO needs much more visibility in the world of diverticulitis treatment!
Diverticulitis Shake Helped Heal Husband and Parents
Territ (Va) on 05/16/2018
My husband and parents have both suffered from diverticulitis and this has worked for all of them...
1 hour BEFORE you eat OR 1.5 hours AFTER you eat, drink the following shake once in morning and once at night.
Put all in a blender, blend and drink.
After you drink your shake, take a probiotic and 800mg of turmeric gelcap. Also if you didn't have the papaya extract then take the papaya pill now.
Multiple Remedies Helped Obstinate Diverticulitis

Last week, I followed this protocol and was stymied when, though the diverticulitis was somewhat better, I was suddenly constipated and consequently developed a hemorrhoid. Enough, already! Obviously, I needed to augment or alter my regimen. So, I added a few more drops of 5% Lugols to my usual 6 drops, used a vitamin E suppository to relieve the hemorroid, added grape seed extract, and, most significantly, reread constipation cures in Earth Clinic.
I come to this site 2 or 3 times a week, sometimes more, and am so grateful to those who post and change my family's life for the better. This time I learned that a treatment for gallstones and kidney stones could also relieve constipation and therefore hemorrhoids. So.....I added olive oil (2T) mixed with lemon juice (2T). Including a pinch of sea salt makes the mixture taste like salad dressing and entirely palatable. Today, I woke symptom free.
So, one more time, thank you Earth Clinic. BTW, my husband uses the olive oil/lemon juice mixture for kidney stones - works every time!
Diatomaceous Earth Excellent Remedy for Diverticulitis
Karin (Wilmington, Nc) on 08/11/2015
Initially, I took one tablespoon in half a glass of water -on an empty stomach- twice a day, but after a month, it began to hurt my stomach, and I began spreading out dosages. I now take it once a week and feel cured!
It is extremely important to only use Food Grade diatomaceous earth. There is a version of this used for swimming pool filters which can be fatal! The food grade is quite safe to ingest, but be careful not to inhale the dust which can damage lungs.
The attacks, which had been worsening for years, are now history.
Protocol Used for Colon Issues
Xia (Los Angeles, Ca) on 09/04/2012
I told a friend of mine who had been suffering from ulcerative colitis for 6 months without relief despite a multitude of prescription meds and he tried the combination I described above (he said he also added Boswellian for inflammation) and within 4 weeks he was given a completely clean bill of health from his doctor.
Hope this helps anyone suffering from colon problems!!! I told my doctor and my surgeon and both were very impressed with the natural healing method and just wanted to know how I had thought of that combination. It did not surprise either that it actually worked!
Aloe Vera Juice, Papaya Juice and Pills for Divertulitis
Rilo B. (Crescent City, Ca ) on 06/01/2011
Desperate for relief I visited a healthfood store in Brookings, OR and the kind store owner, (after asking me what I had been eating) quickly told me that the combination of elk, berries &almonds was causing diverticulitis. She then brought a tall bottle of Aloe Vera juice, some papaya juice & papaya tablets and told me to just start drinking the Aloe and to eat papaya tablets before each meal from now on - was cured within a few days. Free advice that saved me from more useless Dr. appts. and a lifetime of recurring problems.
I was really saddened when I met people who had had sometimes 5 surgeries for diverticulitis in Montana where elk is plentiful after that.... Once again -another example of medical community failing to help with something as simple as Aloe Vera juice & papaya for this awful, painful & sometimes life threatening condition. Even though I would tell people about this simple solution... They opted for believing their Dr.s advice that they needed surgery - after all Dr.s being a gift from God and all, win some, lose some "wisdom never lies" -Homer... Now I always check earthclinic before making a Dr. appt. to see if I can heal myself.
