a very dear friend who is an O and has diverticulitis was leafing through my BTD medical encyclopedia for her condition and was distressed that such a common ailment was not listed. Perhaps the condition, "ulcerative colitis" is close, but it didn't seem to fit for her. She is not sure about this way of eating and I was hoping she would get some advise that would really help her. As an O with diverticulitis, she thinks that raw foods cleansing is the way to go.....??? I'm not so sure!

My brother, who is O, thinks he has this as well. He does find that when he eats close to BTD it helps. I'm wondering if some of the protocols would help her:

Someone else will be along w/ some better answers.

There is the intestinal health protocol.

I wouldn't do a raw vegetable cleanse in the middle of an attack, but otherwise I think it would be okay (unless it would mean a tremendous increase in the amount of fiber the person would be eating).

And there is always the general advise . . . increase fiber (gradually); drink plenty of water; probiotics; good fats.

I posted on another board quite some time ago about being diagnosed with diverticulitis.  This board was a btd friendly board, and I was asked what i was eating.  
So i described my food and was told to 'soak' my nuts before eating.
If I eat nuts that have not been soaked, it will come back.
This is just one person's experience

The foods I most often hear about giving people trouble and bringing on attacks are walnuts (most often) and pecans.  And I would bet it is not the nuts themselves but the mold/fungus/whatever that forms so readily on them.  Bet soaking gets rid of that!

for diverticulitis

a good probiotic  like Polyflora O.....reduces harmful bacteria
Omega 3's...eat richly oiled beneficial fish...reduces inflamation of the lining and promotes elimination
peppermint Oil  ...one to two enteric coated capsules three times daily with meals..reduces cramps and increases bile flow

vitamin C from acerola 1 g daily....promotes healing of divericula

don't eat foods that contain seeds unless grounded like flax seed which is great for constipation
drink water and eat a diet high in fibre..for O's beneficial friuits and vegetables(except raw) steamed until soft

100% compliancy on O diet....void the avoids

eat Organic grass fed beef as much as possible...and as Isa said...move....move....move

I agree with the seed thing whole heartedly, I have UC which makes me basically have diverticulitis, flax seed is fine, but I can't eat any other seeds and have to be careful with nuts and nutbutters, i can eat pumpkinseed butter because it is smooth textured, but if I tried to eat pumpkin seeds even ground I would have lots of pain

be wary of tomato seeds, okra, yellow squash (zucchini if it is big, but otherwise they have softer seeds than yellow squash, pepper seeds, everything, zinc supplementation, vit c and seasalt are helpful

When I brought this up three out of the four positive results were the same. Is this supposed to be?

Debra

P.S.  If I type in the whole word "diverticulitis" only one result pops up which is the first one from the word "divertic".

I also got only one and that one did not say anything about helping her diverticulitis, but just that she had it.....and yet I feel it must be a condition that is amenable to treatment with diet! Mikeo had a good regimen, for starters.
