Diverticulitis can be a painful feeling in the stomach caused by a lot of different bad habits, obtaining diverticulitis can be a lot easier than making it go away. Depending on the severity of the problem are the actions that will be necessary for you to take for your condition that you have. Taking an over the counter diverticulitis remedy tends to work, but not as good as a natural diverticulitis remedy because they will be just masking the pain and not fixing the pain. With most over the counter remedies you can experience side effects.
If this is your first time suffering from diverticulitis, or you only get it once in awhile and the pain is not so bad, you should be able to get away with just giving your colon a rest. You can do this by relaxing and taking deep breaths to ease the pain and also generally staying away from foods for a while. If you need to eat stay away from fast foods/fatty foods and replace these with high fiber foods, fruit, and vegetables.
At the point of being in pain your colon needs to rest. If you still feel too much pain and you need more relief on a more common basis you should try to fix diverticulitis with a more natural remedy. A natural diverticulitis remedy is healthier and will be a much more effective in the long run, by keeping the body’s system balanced. As always you should consult your doctor before taking any foreign type of medication even if it is a safe natural diverticulitis remedy.
Matricaria recutita and Filipendula ulmaria are both herbs that can ease the pain of diverticulitis because they act like an anti inflammatory which will help you relax and in turn helping your colon relax. Ulmus fulva and Sutherlandia frutescens are both herbs that act as a pain reliever to digestive irritation and might be a good alternative to Tylenol. If your symptoms of diverticulitis become chronic and you have not been to a doctor in a while then you need to go and get a checkup. Your doctor may prescribe you medication or if he seems to think that the colon is infected you might find yourself hospitalized and receiving antibiotics and fluids to help you get back to normal.
It’s not uncommon for some people to require diverticulitis surgery. Although the two types of surgery – primary bowel resection and bowel resection with colostomy are not counted towards major surgeries, it is still surgery and should be taken seriously as with any other surgery. It’s very easy to ignore symptoms, because of many different reasons for anybody to have a stomach ache, the best way to know the difference is to go to the doctor regularly.
There is a natural way to help protect yourself from getting diverticulitis. It is highly suggested that you keep to a high fiber diet, stay active and drink lots of water. Don’t prolong using the bathroom, eat less red meat etc…. to put it in just a few words: A healthy diet and healthy living routines will help you to protect yourself against diverticulitis.
