    I believe that STRESS is one of the major reasons people get Diverculitis. Once my stress was erased I no longer have Diverculitis.
    I did take alfalfa, B complex, vit C time release, E, Omega 3, Calcium with Magnesium, and a multi vitamin as well.
    I also use optiflora..acidolphilus. Which is another helpful thing to use as you heal up. Esp if you have been put on Steroids. Believe mine hit because of taking Steroids for Shingles which wrapped all around my body.
    I regret the steroids as they truly did my stomach and colon alot of damage.

    Dr Oz Hi,
    Sooooo glad you have cleared up the nut situation, but what about other foods?
    I was diagnosed with diverticulitis 4 months ago when I was rushed into hospital with pains so bad I thought it was my appendix.(till the pain moved sides) and I was put on a plain and liquid diet, when i came home but i did have a few more flare up over the next two months then I was told I had ultralectiv colitisas as well. i’m not even old enough to have this i’m almost 40!
    Food has become a major factor and been told to cut out on loads of foods to help prevent it and help it reduce it and to prevent it again but some foods don’t go well with the colitis. To be fair iv not had a flare up since cutting these out of my diet, but is it correct? in your opinion?
    as well as nuts (which I am delighted I can go buy some tomorrow)
    I shouldn’t have peas, corn on the cob/sweetcorn, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, caffeine, tobacco, white rice, pasta bread, red meat, strawberries, kiwi, oranges, raw veg, spices, apples, plums.
    there does not seem to be a full list of foods you can and can not eat.
    please help, whats good and what should we avoid?
    Thanks Dr Oz in advance x
