Diverticulosis – Stomach Cramps, Irregular Bowels, Bloating

diverticulosis april 2017Do you suffer from abdominal cramps, constipation, diarrhea, or bloating and gas? This could all be caused by a weakness in the large intestines which creates sac-like pouches to form into the intestines. When these pouches get faeces trapped between the sacs it becomes infected and the infection causes all of the above symptoms. This is called Diverticulosis.

Diverticulosis is more common in people over the age of 60. It can cause nausea and vomiting as well as fever and chills. If the condition gets worse complications cause the intestine wall to narrow. It can also cause holes in the colon, fistulas and abscesses which lead to many other health problems.

Treating diverticulosis can occur in a number of ways. If it is only a minor case there are a few things you can do naturally. A change in diet will help. Avoid foods that may aggravate the infected area such as too much fibre in beans, pea, coarse grains, popcorn and dried fruits. Bed rest will often help if you are experiencing a bout of diverticulosis. Severe issues may lead to a need for an operation to resolve the problem.

It is important to see a naturopath or nutritionist to help you make the proper changes in your diet to lessen your symptoms. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with pain and symptoms. Chinese medicine recommends eating warm liquids such as soup, which is easier to digest. Your naturopath or nutritionist can help create a meal plan that would best suit your needs when suffering from diverticulosis.
