Diverticulosis, Diverticulitis, Diverticular Disease
Diverticulitis is a disease that occurs when small pouches in the colon that bulge outward become infected or inflamed. These pouches are called diverticula, and the condition of having diverticula is called diverticulosis.
Diverticular disease is common in developed countries where highly refined low-fibre diets are common. The disease is rare in countries of Asia and Africa, where people eat high-fiber vegetable diets.
Most people with diverticulosis never have any symptoms or discomfort. Mild cramps, bloating, constipation, tenderness around the left side of the lower abdomen, fever, nausea, vomiting and chills may occur.
Diverticulitis can lead infections, perforations or tears, blockages, or bleeding. These complications require treatment and you should see your doctor.
Natural Treatment for Diverticulitis
  • Eat foods high in fibre - cereals, fruits and vegetables
  • Chew food slowly and thoroughly
  • Drink plenty of liquids, including fruit and vegetable juices, milk, and water
  • Exercise regularly
  • Avoid straining when going to the bathroom
We particularly recommend the addition of Plant Sterols and Sterolins to the diet.
The Most Effective Natural Remedies for Diverticulitis
A good nutritional programme is essential - please see our Dietary Guidelines page.  With the exception of Digestive Enzymes, and Wild Yam all of the natural remedies we recommend for the digestion are contained within The Core Regime - a proven nutritional programme that improves health naturally. By addressing overall health in a holistic manner.
Primebiotic contains the highest quality, nutrient dense, green superfoods, pre-digested with 13 synergistic live bacteria. Multi strains of bacteria are far more potent than merely supplementing with one or two strains of bacteria. The potent mixture of superfoods, cereal grasses, micro-algae and kelp, provide many health benefits.  Cereal grasses are high in chlorophyll, vitamins, protein, minerals, and unique digestive enzymes. Micro-algae contain significant amounts of lipid, protein, chlorophyll, carotenoid, vitamins, minerals and unique pigments and Kelp provides all the nutrients from the ocean - nature's most complete nutrient 'store', exposing these wonderful ingredients to the probiotic process enhances their inherent ability to promote the growth and reproduction of friendly bacteria.
Powdered Barley Grass Juice has potent nutrition and health restorative benefits.  It is a nutritious, alkaline powder made from young barley grass juice which contains perhaps the most balanced nutrient profile of all green plants with a natural balance and abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, active enzymes, and chlorophyll, it is an exceptional superfood.
Daily consumption of powdered barley grass juice will help provide your body with essential nutrients that promote health and vitality. After taking powdered barley grass juice daily for as little as one week, many people report an increase in energy, better looking hair, skin, and nails, and increased regularity - all signs of good nutrition.  
If you eat cooked food Digestive Enzymes are definitely required to help maintain health. Digestive enzymes are present in raw food, but destroyed by cooking, in order to digest and absorb food, the body has to work hard.   Typically by the time we reach our 40's our internal glands and organs are beginning to fail to produce enough enzymes.   Simply put, this results in poor health or outright disease.    To help reverse these diseases and move towards optimum health we need to supplement with digestive enzymes.   The only other way to protect ourselves is to eat a 90 to 100% raw diet (see Dietary Guidelines)
Zell Oxygen can justly be described as an essential supplement.  A more balanced and fundamental approach than oxygen therapy, and in almost all cases an essential part of a regenerative programme.    A Superior Method of Oxygen Therapy that has many years of successful clinical use behind it.Due to its specific enzymes it compliments  a full spectrum of natural vitamins and minerals formulation such as Primebiotic
  • A tonic to the entire organism
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Increases energy
  • Accelerates hair growth
  • Helps to eliminate Candida
  • Repairs damaged cells
  • Improves bowel function
  • Improves Nervous System


Wild Yam helps to maintain a balance of hormones in the body and is a perfect example of the old saying  'Let your food be your medicine' (Hippocrates, 'the father of medicine').
The Trobiand islanders, who attribute much of their radiant health to its regular consumption, regard it with reverence.   Yam has a long tradition as a natural remedy in herbal medicine.
  • Nervine & anti-spasmodic
  • Anti-neuralgic effects
  • Alleviating pains in the urinary tract
  • Treating cramps and nausea during pregnancy
  • Intestinal colic
  • Period problems
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Aids liver and bowel function
However, its range of action far exceeds its traditional herbal role. Scientific research and clinical trials suggest that yam is a "super-food" - a food capable of improving the health and well-being of the majority of people and in some individuals proving tremendous in its health and elevating effects.
As there is a degree of auto-immune disorder in most chronic health issues, you may also wish to read the article Factors Involved In Auto-Immune Disorders And Effective, Natural Treatment Protocols. The remedies recommended in the article overlap with those discussed in the core regime so you can select remedies to suit your individual requirements. 


Removal of Blocks to Health, Healing and Wellness

We have defined the major blocks to health improvement which should be considered the number one priority for resolution before one goes on to a more specific healing regimen such as that detailed in the programme above. By removing these blocks one will feel stronger and more prepared for a specific programme and will achieve far greater success with it. Please read this essential article here

The Core Regime

Not all of the remedies listed here will neccessarily be needed. We strive to bring you the most effective remedies to resolve your health problems in the simplest supplemental regime possible. We aim to treat the actual root causes of health problems holistically rather than supply remedies that will give temporary or partial relief from only the symptoms. This has been our mission since the founding of Regenerative Nutrition in 1994. As we uncover more fundamental truths about the causes, and therefore the relief, of diseases and health problems we update and revise our product range and recommendations.

Above, we detail targeted remedy recommendations for Diverticulosis, but we further suggest that you view the core regime article and supplement pages by clicking here

To achieve overall good health and long term resolution of this health problem the remedies selected here should be combined with core regime remedies for the best results.

It may well be that there is some overlap and that many of the remedies in the core regime are listed here also.
