Information on Diverticulitis

DescriptionDiverticuli are small pouches that develop in the wall of the colon. They can trap fecal matter, undigested food, and debris, and act as a site of inflammation and infection. Diverticuli may never regress once they have formed, but their symptoms can be controlled.
Treatment PlanHerbs include intestinal anti-inflammatories and soothing herbs. A high-fiber diet rich in whole foods is indicated. Try eating smaller meals more often.
