Diverticulities (active inflammation)

Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Reduce lifestyle stressors and avoid internalizing stress; incorporate balance and relaxation into life; include deep             breathing exercises and biofeedback devices.

•   Avoid constipation and maintain regular, healthy bowel function.

•   Stay well-hydrated with plenty of pure, filtered water.

•   Exercise regularly to build muscle tone; avoid a sedentary lifestyle.

•   Avoid use of laxatives and enemas.

•   Avoid tobacco in every form; avoid chronic caffeine consumption.

•   Properly manage any infections.

•   Use safe, organic cosmetics and household cleaners to avoid exposure to excess chemicals, which can signal                       inflammation and oxidative stress.

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Eat a low residue soft-food diet while symptomatic, including low-fiber and no seeds or nuts; avoid fibrous vegetables;     drink pure, filtered water, and consider resting the bowels by consuming liquids, such as PaleoMeal® in almond or            coconut milk to ensure adequate nutrition.

•   Avoid all grains including wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, buckwheat, bulgur, amaranth, quinoa, teff (crackers,           cookies, bread and pastries).

•   Avoid dairy products. Goat’s milk and cheese from goat’s milk may be acceptable if no sensitivity to these foods exists. •   Avoid all supplements that use black pepper extract, also called piperine or bioperine.

•   Avoid sugar and sweetened products.

•   Avoid carageenan-containing products since this can irritate the GI tract.

•   Avoid any known food allergies and food sensitivities. Test with food sensitivity profile.

•   Avoid any foods that cause diarrhea.

•   Eat an anti-inflammatory diet that is rich in omega-3 fats; include olive oil, wild caught fatty, cold-water fish, grass-fed      beef, nut butters, and omega-3 eggs.

•   Use herbs and spices high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties such as turmeric, rosemary, ginger and            basil.
