Diverticulitis
« on: August 19, 2006, 03:12:50 PM »
My MIL has diverticulitis and takes Metamucil every day.  This worries my dh and I.  Does anyone know how you get diverticulitis?  Are there any natural remedies?  She just started Doug Kaufman's Phase One Diet to see if that helps.  It pretty much rids your body of yeast. I don't even know if yeast is the culprit for this disease.  Any info would be appreciated. :)

It's funny that this topic has been read 244 times and no answer has come!!! I'd like to have answers as well because I've been told that I have diverticulosis/diverticulitis. I've dealed with constipation and bloating and gases for as long as I remember in my life. I want to improve my digestive system, really, I KNOW I NEED THAT!!! I'm nursing my 4m baby and would like some advice abot where to start. Please, if there's someone who can give me a clue, I would really appreciate it.

I would be looking at both candida and food allergies as culprits. 
For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto him against that day.

My mother was diagnosed with this a few years ago.  She used oregano tea when she felt like she had an infection coming on to wipe it out.  She does take some kind of fiber supplement.  However, she started taking cod liver oil and she has not had any problems since then.  I think it must greatly reduce intestinal inflammation.  She used to have problems horrible problems with diarrhea, but now she doesn't.  That's the extent of my knowledge in this area, but I would second the other posts about possible allergies and candida.
