Diverticular Disease (Diverticulosis; Diverticulitis)
A condition where the inner lining of the gastrointestinal tract protrudes or herniates through the muscular layer that surrounds it. It is most commonly seen in the sigmoid colon. In the more common type Diverticulosis, where the person has mild pain in the left, lower quadrant of the abdomen. The pain may be relieved by defecation. The person may have alternating diarrhea and constipation. In Diverticulitis - where the diverticula are inflamed, the symptoms include left lower abdominal pain, excess gas formation, nausea, irregular bowel habits.

Lack of fiber and liquids in the diet, sedentary life style and irregular bowel habits like neglecting the urge to defecate predispose to this condition.

The colon and bowel are the depository for all waste material after the nutrients have been extracted. Decaying food ferments, forms gases, generates toxins, becomes a breeding ground for putrefactive bacteria, viruses, parasites, yeast's, and molds. Ideally, one should eliminate, as often as a meal is taken in. Bowel transit time should be approximately 12 hours.

A gentle abdominal massage in individuals may help to regulate the bowel movement. Oat bran and Wheat bran have insoluble fiber and are known to relieve constipation, oats, too, work as a laxative. The fecal bulking will tend to protect against problems like diverticulitis and hemorrhoids. Legumes of all types are excellent in promoting healthy colons and bowel functions. Soybeans, too, tend to produce softer, bulkier stools which will help protect against constipation, diverticular disease, hemorrhoids, other bowel dysfunction, and possible colon cancer.

Number one choice: wheat bran, also other foods high in fiber that give the stool bulk, such as legumes, oats, cabbage, carrots, and apples. If you have the disease start adding fiber to your diet slowly and gradually build to 25 to 35 grams per day. Increase your liquid intake (water preferred) to a minimum of 64 oz / per / day.
