How is diverticular disease treated?
Many patients with diverticulosis have minimal to no symptoms, and do not require any specific treatment. A high-fiber diet and fiber supplements are advisable to prevent constipation.
The American Dietetic Association recommends 20-35 grams each day. Wheat bran has much to commend it as this has been shown to reduce intra colonic pressure Ispaghula is also effective at 1-2 grams a day. Colonic stimulants should be avoided. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) says foods such as nuts, popcorn hulls, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, caraway seeds, and sesame seeds have traditionally been labeled as problem foods for people with this condition; however, no scientific data exists to prove this hypothesis.
The seeds in tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, strawberries, raspberries, and poppy seeds, are not considered harmful by the NIDDK. Treatments, like some colon cleansers, that cause hard stools, constipation, and straining, are not recommended. Some doctors also recommend avoidance of fried foods, nuts, corn, and seeds to prevent complications of diverticulosis. Whether these diet restrictions are beneficial is uncertain; recent studies have stated that nuts and popcorn do not contribute positively or negatively to patients with diverticulosis or diverticular complications.
When the spasm pain is troublesome the use of peppermint oil (1 drop in 50 ml water), or peppermint tablets (e.g., colpermin), can be helpful. Complicated diverticulosis requires treatment of the complication. These complications are often grouped under a single diagnosis of diverticulitis and require skilled medical care of the infection, bleeding and perforation which may include intensive antibiotic treatment, intravenous fluids and surgery. Complications are more common in patients who are taking NSAIDS or aspirin. As diverticulosis occurs in an older population such complications are serious events
Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharides as a Treatment for Diverticulosis
Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides (AMP) are long chain molecules composed of individual mannose and glucose molecules connected together. These AMP molecules are but one of the approximate 200 ingredients found in the Aloe Vera plant. AMP molecules, are anti-inflammatory.
Diverticulosis causes inflammation in your GI AMP has an anti-inflammatory affect on your GI. Here are some of the possible benefits of AMP:
- May serve as an anti-inflammatory, and may control future inflammation
- May control disease by lowering the number of times a person experiences a recurrence
- May serve as an effective intracellular antioxidants
- May have anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect
- May serve as an immune-modulator and TNF blocker

- May improves cellular metabolism
- May enhances immune system functions
- May increases immune cells

More and more people are researching AMP — they do this to educate themselves and potentially avoid health problems caused by prescription and over the counter drugs. Unfortunately, most drugs are synthetic and can cause an array of defects and side-effects. AMP is all natural and has no side-effects.
