Natural Remedies That May Help Diverticulitis

Ranked by our online community.


Probiotics are live microorganisms that naturally live in the human body. They typically include strains from the common bacteria groups, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, as well as the yeast, Saccharomyces boulardii. Found naturally in fermented foods (kombucha, tempeh, kimchi, miso and sauerkraut) and dairy (yogurt, buttermilk, cottage cheese), probiotics are part of the microbiome or the healthy community of organisms that keep the body healthy.



Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin found in foods including fish (salmon, trout, sardines) and mushrooms (morel, chanterelle, oyster, shiitake), but more substantially from sun exposure, as the sun’s ultraviolet rays trigger synthesis. 



Turmeric (Curcumin)

Turmeric is made from the dried rhizomes of the Curcuma longa plant, belonging to the ginger family. Native to South Asia, Turmeric has a long history in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. The key component is the organic polyphenol, curcumin, which is responsible for giving the plant its yellow color. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects have been used in the treatment of arthritis, digestive disorders, respiratory and metabolic issues.  




Garlic also known as Allium Sativum is a species of the onion genius, Allium. Native to Asia and Iran, garlic is a perennial flowering plant sprouting from a multi-segmented bulb, closely related to the onion, leek, shallot and chive. Upon trauma, the bulb creates sulfur compounds used for medicinal qualities.




Boswellia, also known as Indian Frankincense, is made from Boswellia serrata tree gum-resin. Native to India, Africa and the Middle East, the branching tree has been used in African folk and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as an analgesic and in the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases.
