So sorry this is the route. You may do very well afterward.

I have no idea about what causes it. I think it does run in families.

Randibear had this surgery ..

I’m pretty sure a medication I took to detox mold caused my diverticulitis

The medication is csm and is also given to detox Lyme

I was older and already diagnosed with diver tic u Lo sis. . That is normal aging and doesn’t cause problems.

But if you have that constipation can change it to diverticulitis and that med gave me serious constipation

I’m still diagnosed with diverticulitis but I am very very careful to not get constipated. I use a lot of magnesium and vit c daily. Also prunes or prune juice. And if I get into trouble senna tea.

Good luck. Praying for you. That diver pain was worse than having a baby for me

Lyme? Its complicated. Educate yourself.

I would think lyme could, yet so many other things, too.

CSM - cholestyramine was terrible for my gut, too. But I stopped that fairly soon into it. It was horrible for me in so many ways. Spirulina and Chlorella were / are so much better and also offer nutrients.


While there can be many causes and also many things that can make it worse even if not the main cause, OXALATES can cause / contribute to diverticulitis. I've been studying this topic lots lately for other reasons.

I'm assuming your doctors have all told you to avoid oxalates in certain foods (and in tea, too, sigh!).

Meat, eggs & animal fats (and, yes, they are good for us if from pastured animals) do not have this problem though any other foods might.

Of course, if you eat meat, it's best to slowly roast it until it is very tender. Avoid spices for now - other than for SEA SALT.

Many leafy greens and nuts (especially nut "milks") are very risky. Many grains and legumes, too.

Zucchini is one that is safe - at least so far - by my cross checking many charts - I've not found to be a problem in this regard. It takes checking various lists, though, as some differ.

Still, just in case your doctors failed to bring this up, it's really - really - important, especially for anyone with issues of the gut. A low oxalate diet has been know to save lives for those most affected.

Other things that contribute or cause leaky gut, too, really matter. How oxalates do that is that the sharp crystals can literally cut their way through the gut lining junctions.

And oxalates can go anywhere in the body to cut & scrape (not just to the kidneys as most might think).

https://www.facebook.com/groups/TryingLowOxalates/

Trying Low Oxalates - Facebook group

http://www.urinarystones.info/resources/Docs/Oxalate-content-of-food-2008.pdf

CHART - Oxalates in Foods, color coded columns.


I searched for days to figure out either chlorella or spirulina contain oxalates. One tidbit that is reassuring since "stone formation" likely refers to oxalate related:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16084629
2006

. . . Spirulina diet alone (G4) did not induce any features relating to stone forming condition suggesting that free radical release might have been suppressed due to enrichment of dietary antioxidants and vitamins. . . .


Why oxalates matter (and more so to some than others) . . . and what helps:

And this presentation certainly shines some new light on old ideas, whether one is on a low-carb diet or not. [He is speaking here at Low Carb Down Under conference.]

The charts near the end that show dramatic reduction in symptoms for those with no fiber in their diet - well, that is certainly something remarkable.

I've read from about a half dozen other doctors on this and they agree but I'll not post all my study notes here. I do have many more - and some with charts of nutrients in meats, if you want those links.

(again, though, for those with tender guts, tender meats / cooking methods best - then it can even be chewed very well, or mashed for easier digestion). Bone Broth is good, too, yet be sure of any spices used in it.

Certain kinds of fish, too, is often very kind to the gut.

And I'm finding what he talks about certainly to be the case with the more offending plant foods I eliminate. Lots of fiber necessary? Seems not to be so.

Now, this might not be the approach one might take forever yet it might offer some time for healing of the gut in general and then slowly - with study & one at a time - add in certain plant foods to see how they work.
