View Full Version : raw food and diverticulitis
11-21-2008, 08:19 PM
My father was just diagnosed with diverticulitis. They want him to stay in the hospital for 5 days because he is so inflammed and they want to feed him intravenously. I am 100% raw for 1 1/2 years. He doesn't really believe in doing this diet, but I am going to the hospital to visit him tomorrow and would love to bring him some strong information about diverticulitis and raw food. He was also just diagnosed with gout. Any information would be so helpful because I know he can be cured. If there is anybody who has any information on this, I would so greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much.

and at juicefeasting i remember there being some good videos there where theyre showing how to blend stuff up while explaining the concept . maybe if you can search there and find the proper vid , maybe also on youtube search , you could bring a lap top or find computer in hospital where he can watch it .
and prob under raw foodism at youtube you could find alot of vid's to pick from .

With this disease it is wise to stay away from nuts and seeds.
You can research it more, but I had a friend that had it and he was advised to stay away from them by his doctor. They get imbedded in the pockets of the colon and can cause swelling to person with this issue.

I am not familiar with this decease, but i would definitely go visit www.rawfamily.com. They are great example of reversing the impossible. Also this new dvd with reversing diabetes in 30 days will be very inspiring.
Once your father, start to give the benefit of doubt that your body can really heal if your provide him the tool, he may give a try. Try to find a doctor, or nutritionist or homeopathic doctor that DO RAW FOOD. It is important that they do raw food because sadly they are trained to think that raw food is bad but the one that have tried this diet, found out for themselves.
Do what you can to make him feel safe that he will get better. Our attitude is more then 50% of our health.
I send you love and to your daddy!

I'm thinking green smoothies would be helpful once he is home from the hospital. blended foods should not get stuck in the diverticuli.

Thank you everyone for all your replies. My father came home now and the doctor told him there is NO specific diet for diverticulitis. WHAT?????????????Thank God my father is smarter than that and he is actually doing green smoothies and staying away from sugar and processed food. YAY!!! I'm shocked. My father didn't believe in my rawfood way of life for years now. The pain he was in shifted his brain to thinking "correctly" lol.

What is the update on your dad? Has the raw diet working for him with his diverticulitis?

For sure he was given no specific diet for divert. Docs dont know about nutrition as a rule...only natch ones usually.
