My mother is suffering from diverticulitis, and I'm wondering if anyone has been healed or has improved from this after starting the diet?  She is an A, which is high in nuts and seeds, which she can't (apparently) have.

The avoidance of nut and seeds seems to be discredited by more recent research. Although, many doctors continue to recommend avoiding them.

I would grind those seeds and nuts so that there are no unchewed bits that might exasperate the issue.

I had IBS, then diverticulitis. After starting and following the diet, I never had another flare-up. I eat nuts and seeds. Quite a lot of them.  I soak and then dehydrate them.  I have eaten some that were not soaked/dehydrated, when eating away from home and not had a problem. As a blood type A, nuts and seeds would be important for her diet. I would look to other foods that may be causing her a problem and also look at a lack of good bacteria.  I cannot take just any probiotic.  I tried a supposed very high quality and expensive probiotic combo one time and had terrible diverticulitis pain, ended up on an antibiotic. Even yogurt can do that to me and B's can have dairy. I can only use Dr D's, NAP's, Polyflora. As a non-secretor, I do not want to be without it. Is she taking Dr D's Polyflora A formula?

Most docs do not tell patients they can not have nuts and seeds-- I have never seen a nut or seed inside of a diverticulum ( I am an Endoscopy nurse and see loads) Most are filled with stool which I suspect has bacteria that causes most of the problems.

Keeping the gut flora healthy would be key to keeping the diverticulosis from becoming diverticulitis.

I agree, Andrea.  When I was in nursing school the idea was to restrict nuts and seeds for diverticulosis/itis.  The theory seems to have changed, and you would know since you are currently working in endoscopy. But, I do hear of people still being given that outdated advice.

When I talk to her about it she says she has pockets and gets very sick if she has nuts, so she avoids them.  I was telling her what was recommended as an A and she became very closed down when I mentioned nuts.  She is on nothing as far as I know.  I think if I have success then she'll be more interested though.  I'll push the eating nut butters for her though at least.  Thanks for the responses guys.

Do you suppose the nuts she eats might be the commercial ones?  They can be stale or rancid.  They also can be heavily oiled with cottonseed or other oils that also can be rancid or not good for you.

I agree with others that nuts/seeds in small quantities are fine so long as soaked properly and rinsed (some don't need soaking such as pine nuts and others like cashews and maca nuts less soaking time), and if desired dehydrated at low temperatures.  It is also important to remember for people with metabolic disorders and inflammation in the body/gut, that most seeds/nuts contain large numbers of omega 6 fats, macadamias contain lowest so bear this in mind. Hemp seeds contain a good ratio of fats.  I can only eat them in small quantities after other foods and make sure chewed well.  Make sure nuts/seeds as fresh as possible, store in fridge.
I tried some almond butter the other day bought from a major supermarket, it was not nice, so am thinking I'll soak my own almonds, put them in oven at low temp and try and make my own nut butter from now on which will be fresher. Or I'll put them in a smoothie to ensure good digestion.
I also knew a male who had diverticuli, part of the solution is also to remove foods which cause inflammation, most grains, legumes, refined sugars, processed foods, high gi fruits for starters.
just focus on essentials - proteins, good fats/oils, vegetables, small amount of nut/seed, lower gi fruits, fresh green herb, some spices, good salt.  keep the sweeteners out until improvement and choose the 0 calorie, 0% carb impact sweetener occasionally only - maybe in baked goods on rare occasions.  exercise/stretching essential.
