Eagle, ID (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Diverticulitis is a disease which attacks the large intestine and colon with patients commonly complaining of constipation, cramping, diarrhoea and/or nausea. The condition can cause sufferers a great deal of pain. If not treated properly, the condition may progress into excruciating pain and left untreated can be fatal.
Many healthcare professionals will advise patients to consume a diet high in fiber and low in processed foods when diagnosed with this illness. Fiber helps aid in the digestion of food and helps to move bulk through the colon. The goal is to avoid surgery if possible.
During a diverticulitis attack, the diverticulitis diet is the opposite of what patients eat to prevent an attack. The diet is basically clear liquids and the slow integration of food with a low fiber content. This can be a very boring and stressful diet for anyone and people simply begin to crave the foods that they cannot have.
Author Denalee Bell stated, “I created 'The Diverticulitis Cookbook and 30 Day Meal Plan' from frustration of my mother’s diagnosis of diverticulosis.” Her mother was diagnosed with Diverticulosis several years ago and had experienced several diverticulitis flare-ups. In an effort to reduce the pain and alleviate symptoms they embarked on a journey to develop a lifestyle that would ward off future attacks. “Eating was a challenge for my mother,” Bell states. “We were given so much contradictory information from medical doctors, that we were forced to do our own research.”
