diverticulitisHi I have been reading posts regarding this condition. I have just seen my doctor and am on hospital waiting list for tests. I experience;
1/bloating in stomach, flatuence, belching and an ache in my lower left abdomen which seems to move around in my lower stomach, lower back and legs. Some times I feel wee sharp pains in my body area.
2/ dull headaches
3/tiredness I feel the tired around my eyes in my neck and head area. Often feel as if my head is blocked. I sneeze heaps in the morning when I first wake. only then.
4/I feel clammy and nausea (I think the nausea is more in my head area) and wonder if I have a fever or have picked up a flu bug.
Most of these symptoms seem to 'flare up'after a period of time where I think I have come right.I think that it is worse just before my periods would be due (have had partial hysterectomy) Day to day the bloating, gas and belching is the most difficult. As it flares up I think the most difficult thing for me to deal with is the overwhelming tiredness.
I sleep pretty good but in the flare up times I dont wake feeling rested and sometimes dream very busy dreams. I drink at least a litre of water a day but this is forced, I never feel thirst for water and I try to walk for one hour four times a week but when tired this is difficult.I think white bread products make the bloating and belching worse. I tend to crave sweet food only after tea not often through the day. I am sensitive to noise I can hear everything that is happening around me and feel unable to block say the tv noise from a low playing stereo or a conversation.I am sensitive to others moods and generally keep people at bay. I find people complicated especially people I dont know and groups of people are difficult for me if I have to make conversation. I like to sit back and watch a situation. I feel like I dont fit in to a crowd situation that requires conversation/ sometimes I dont mind, sometimes I do. dont usually let people who have chaos or are not reliable too close I find these people complicated and emotional and feel drawn in if I dont keep them at bay. Curiously my job involves caring for young people and their families often in these emotional type circumstances but there are rules and boundaries that I am comfortable with and I manage this well. I strongly beleive that one should do what they say they will and I hate to be late if I have made a committment to someone.Love my family deeply and am very protective of them. Love my home its my sanctury. Any suggestions? thanks.

It's common for people older than age 60 to have small, bulging pouches (diverticula) in their digestive tracts Ñ a condition known as diverticulosis. Although diverticula can form anywhere, including in your esophagus, stomach and small intestine, most occur in your large intestine. Because these pouches seldom cause any problems, you may never know you have them.
Sometimes, however, one or more pouches becomes inflamed or infected, causing severe abdominal pain, fever, nausea and a marked change in your bowel habits. When diverticula become infected, the condition is called diverticulitis. Mild cases of diverticulitis can be treated with rest, changes in your diet and antibiotics. But serious cases may require surgery to remove the diseased portion of your colon.
Fortunately, most people with diverticulosis never develop diverticulitis. Best of all, you can help prevent both types of diverticular disease by including more high-fiber foods in your diet.
The remedy that I have used to help a few patients including a man 86 years old is Nat Phos 6x (biochemic) dose 2 tablets taken after lunch and dinner.
This remedy accelerates the passage of food through the gut and thereby ensures that the stagnation of the food in the diverticula in the large intestine is prevented.
Nat Phos 6x will also help to reduce weight at the rate of between 1-2 pounds per week if used in the dosage indicated above.

I developed diverticulitis in last two years where i had cramps and nausea.
It took about month and a half for symptoms to go away. The time to work will vary depending upon severity. It essentially is a healthy and natural antibiotic without side effects. The pockets can heal also.
It is a little expensive but you won't regret it when you avoid surgery and complications of antibiotics. As you get better, you can cut down to a maintenance dose.
Not only does it address diverticulitis but a whole host of digestive disorders.
