So how do we know if we have Diverticulitis? I have been a little under the weather lately. I have been feeling pain in the lower left side of my abdomen and sometimes I feel nauseous at work. I thought it was just gas causing the pain in my lower left side of my abdomen but when it gets too painful, I also thought it might be appendicitis. It was not until I was having a fever and chills that I went to see a physician and found out that I was having symptoms of Diverticulitis.
Diverticulitis is the inflammation of the pouches called diverticula that can form in your intestines. I did not know I have diverticula forming in my intestines. It never occurred to me that I was feeling all the symptoms of Diverticulitis. Since my Diverticulitis was still acute, I was only feeling the pain at the lower left side of my abdomen and nausea but sometimes I can also experience constipation as one of my symptoms of Diverticulitis. Luckily it was still in the early stages so I don’t have to undergo surgery yet and I only need to follow a Diverticulitis diet and avoid foods that may trigger a Diverticulitis flare-up until I can get my Diverticulitis under control.
If my Diverticulitis worsens, blood in the poop can also be a symptom of Diverticulitis and then it can be considered too serious for just a diet to control. When that symptom of Diverticulitis occurs, my physician told me that I have to undergo surgery so I have to make sure I don’t reach that stage. I better do something before it gets worse.
Another symptom for Diverticulitis to watch out for is vomiting. Although I am sometimes feeling nauseous, I haven’t vomited yet so there is still hope for me. Believe me, I am relieved that I was able to see the symptoms of Diverticulitis during its early stages and consulted a doctor before the condition got worse because I am terrified of undergoing surgeries. I was referred by my doctor to a nutritionist who in turn recommended that I take grapefruit seed extract to help me combat the symptoms of diverticulitis. It is a mild natural antibiotic and also a natural digestive immuno stimulant that is rich in antioxidants that can protect against tissue damage, in my case, my digestive tissues.
I bought my grapefruit seed extract on www.rachelstea.com and started taking them. Although I was confident in my grapefruit seed extract, my nutritionist placed me in a strict liquid diet for the meantime to prevent more symptoms of Diverticulitis to act up and I was also given slippery elm bark which I also bought on www.rachelstea.com to help me heal my damaged intestines and lower the inflammation of my intestines causing the pain in my lower left abdomen.
Within a few days of taking both grapefruit seed extract and slippery elm bark and following a strict Diverticulitis diet, I was able to feel better and avoid going through a nasty surgery. Currently recovering from the symptoms of Diverticulitis, I am also advised to drink Rachel’s Digestive Tea to help me have a healthier digestion and Rachel’s Pro 100 probiotics to help me build up my digestive immunity. With a combination of the different goodies I got from Rachel’s Tea, I know battling Diverticulitis will be a walk in the park!
