Definition: Is a condition where the diverticula in the bowel become perforated, infected and inflamed. Diverticula are “sac like” protrusions in the intestinal wall. They typically occur from frequent constipation, which greatly increases pressure causing pouches to form at weak points in the colon.
Typical Complaints: cramping, bloating, tenderness on the left side of the abdomen, gas, constipation or diarrhoea, nausea, and a need to eliminate. There may be blood in the stool due to the inflammation of the lining of the intestine.
DIVERTICULITIS and its relationship with CANDIDA: When an overgrowth of the fungus Candida is present in the bowel it disrupts the normal balance of vital bacterium and thus damages the lining of the bowel and impairs bowel function, leading to the unpleasant side effects of diverticulitis. Constipation is a direct result of Candida overgrowth, which causes the diverticula to become inflamed and infected. This makes the gut far more sensitive to certain foods and substances and food intolerances become commonplace. As well as determining which foods are causing problems, you need to eradicate the overgrowth of Candida to restore normal bowel function and protection of the bowel wall. This is done by following our Candida Program.
The Healing Process: In order to stop the debilitating symptoms of Diverticulitis you need to rid the bowel of Candida and then strengthen and replenish the gut wall with a healthy balance of good bacteria. At the same time you need to heal the gut wall by restoring the integrity of the mucous membranes and diverticula which have been compromised by the presence of Candida. Once this happens diverticulitis will cease to be the problem it was.
