Treating painful diverticular disease

First and foremost, it is very important to add fiber to any person’s diet. That keeps all human bodies functioning properly and efficiently. For a person with painful diverticular disease, it is even more important, however, because it will lower the risk of diverticulitis.
In addition to the addition of fiber, it is crucial that the sufferer avoid the foods that can cause them pain, gas or other diver symptoms. Treating the diver will also help those that also have IBS symptoms.
Diets high in fiber helps to produce a stool that can easily move through the colon; bulky in nature. Another thought is by some medical specialists that the reason that this disorder occurs as we age is because we, in the United States, tend to eat diets low in fiber unlike people in Asia and Africa that eat diets high in fiber. Their tendency compared to ours is practically non-existent to experiencing diverticulosis or diverticulitis!
What does that tell us? Well, for one, the diets in the United States pretty much suck! As my clients age, I am witness to all kinds of crap that people have available for their meals. There are only a few people that are getting what they actually need – and I am cooking for some of them!
One client in particular has a daughter that she lives with that I wish I could nominate for daughter of the year. Not only does she pay attention to her mother’s diet, but bakes whole grain muffins and breads to ensure that her mother not only has treats, but proper treats to boot. Everyone should have relatives like this woman. She is awesome! Thanks to her there is not barely anything wrong with her mother at all! She definitely shows her mother that With Age Comes Respect!
