Diverticulitis Diet and Recipes

Diverticulitis Diet Information and Recipes

Although they sound familiar, treatment options for diverticulosis and diverticulitis are quite different. For example, treatment for diverticulitis may involve surgery, or antibiotics followed with clear liquid or low residue diet, while treatment for diverticulosis usually may only involve dietary modifications towards a greater consumption of fiber.

Clear Liquid Diet for diverticulitis

When symptoms of diverticulitis are severe, a clear liquid diet is recommended. Going without solid food gives the colon a chance to rest and heal.

Low Residue Diet for Diverticulitis

The low residue diet aims to decrease bowel volume so that the infection can heal. At the end of your low residue diet, you should slowly begin adding more high fiber foods into your diet.

“I like the tea and it may have saved me from a blockage! Lots of pain and I used 2 tsps. and drank 2 cups a day. Now I use 1 tsp. and maintain a balance. Doc put me on an antibiotic and she thinks the tea may have helped prevent a more serious condition. I’m convinced.”
