Hello I have been diagnosed with diverticulitis...my symptoms are very very mild almost no pain per say.....what I do have is fever(probably infection) and hi blood pressure which is trying to push it out..

surgery is not an option for me as it can IMO do more harm then good..

I would like other O types to chime in that have this horrendous disease to let me know what you do to get  you by..

Thank you

Lawrence

I know you are asking for O types, so you can ignore my posting, if you like.

Are you compliant with your O blood type diet?  Do you know if you are a secretor or not?

I had a few diverticulitis spells. It was horrible pain. I have not had any since sticking to the BTD.

I took antibiotics at the time, because I knew I was not eating right and I wanted out of pain. I hope to never have to take antibiotics again. It just makes the digestive tract that much harder to work properly. It takes some time to build the health of the gut back to a good state.

I couldn't live without Dr D's probiotics daily.

ARA 6 and a blood type O probiotic would be the best to decrease inflammation.

Thanks for your replys :)

I have no idea if i am a secreter or not ...I am/was on a keto type diet to experiment with ...and its making me more sick so i am going to go back to hard core O type diet. I do not take any antibiotic except to make some very hi PPM silver colliods for the infection ...

I was trying to cut down carbs much lower then the Blood type diet and higher fat but i am thinking the foods i am eating that have hi fat are not good for O types

Hi

Like I said I am now going back to the BTb diet I have nothing else conclusive to go on I dont have the money to get the tests :( with that said..about 3 years ago I started to go off the diet and eat what my Girlfriend was eating I have gained weight and my health has been going down hill ever-since..not feeling well or have energy

but the matter at hand right now is my constant fevers and higher blood pressure caused by my diverticulitis ..I know for a fact this is whats causing the issues because sometimes i feel ok and my bp is normal without fever

I would recommend eating 100% beneficials for the next couple of weeks. You need to be sure to eliminate all lectins that could be problematic for you.

Consider also going grain free for this short period, except for basamati rice. Keep your serving of rice down to less than 1/2 cup, once a day, and increase your vegetable intake.

Consider also going dairy free for this short period of time, except for eggs.

Make some ghee yourself so you can add this pre-cursor food to your diet to nourish your micro-villi in the small intestine.

All excellent recommendations, one of the vegetables that help a lot also is okra. When I was experiencing problems, I would consume a bag of frozen okra as my first meal of the day with jasmine white rice and some ghee. If the bowels are inflamed, white rice is gentler as the fibre of the brown rices can be more irritating until the inflammation is under control.  :)

Hello Dianne what is okra? I mean what does it taste like?

Supportive is great, but you need to be strong enough to do what is right for your health in spite of support or not...  If she walks away because she doesn't want to be part of your good health, so be it - at least you'll have health to share with someone who does care...

Those food lists may not be accurate.

If you can find one of the health series books, I'd follow that. Any one will do, really, since you can't afford supplements. The idea is to get you down to foods that are just beneficial.

Coffee, dairy, all are very bad irritants/inflammatory for Type O.

You need to get on green tea.

You "know" in your gut that this is the way to eat for you. You've learned the hard way. If the person in your life cannot respect that or support that, then what does that say to you?

Be strong. We are here to listen and help guide you.  Open up a thread in the Little Fishes forum if you need to vent. People will drop in to support you.

I'd follow the cardiovascular and intestinal protocols.

Hi Lawrence, I'd second the grain free approach and if you feel your body needs more fat than what's on 'the list', I wouldn't worry...

  Hello, I'm a NB, blood type O+, and was just diagnosed with Diverticulitis after I had a CT done, my blood tests and urine tests came back good. What can I do to prevent this from coming back?

Hi LALB,

Stick close to the right diet for your type and your body will thank you for it.  If you read the recommendations that several members gave the person who started this thread, they will likely help you also.  Try and stick with all Beneficial foods any time there is a major health crisis or chronic illness that we need to take seriously.

Do you know your Secretor Status?
Which of Dr. D's books have you read or do you have?

[b][/b]Hi Victoria,

Thank you for responding. I have and read Eat Right 4 Your Type and I don't know my Secretor status. I wanted to know if I should also take ARA 6 with the O BTD?

ARA6 is good to make sure you have plenty of "feed" for Your Type beneficial bacteria.  It isn't required for most people who are eating enough beneficial vegetables, but it can be helpful at least initially to help the healing processes.  The best thing is that it is really hard to take too much ARA6...

Thank you ABJoe. I will get some ARA 6 and start my BTD. ;D

My original quote is that it is hard to take too much - essentially quoting a study that subjects were fed diets where up to 1/4 or 1/2 of their intake was Larch Arabinogalactin (the fiber that makes up ARA6) without any sign of damage to the subjects.

I take ARA6 in water or fruit juice, so no, the flavor is fine.
Posted by: LALB, Monday, January 26, 2015, 8:23pm; Reply: 23


How much ARA6 should I take, how many times, and how often(daily, weekly)?

What can I take to detox my liver or will the ARA6 be enough?

One of the best things for your liver is to not eat any more Avoid foods (foods that are toxic for your body).  

You can follow the directions on the ARA6 container, which is 1 tsp, mixed in liquid.  Some people take a lot more, such as 1 Tb twice a day.  I take just under 1 tsp once a day.  I've been taking it for many years and started out with more.  It primarily heals and supports the intestines, providing an excellent source of gentle fiber and food for the beneficial bacteria that we want and need in our gut.  It supports the immune system too.

LALB,

Go to the website at:

http://dadamo.com/

Then click on Online Support, then Health Protocols.

On the left side of that page is a list of 30 health protocols, including Intestinal Health, Liver Support, etc. Once you select a protocol, it will list the recommendations for your blood type.

All the best!

Also, if you have questions about any of the supplements, you can enter them in the search window on the site and find articles, blogs, and/or previous forum threads discussing it. A great resource, especially if there is a delay in getting a response here .....
