Diverticulitis is a disaster for the 40 million who suffer and the doctors who try to help
You have diverticulitis and you say: "I would do anything to end it."
Colitis is a nightmare for over 5 million people and the doctors who have no cure
You suffer with colitis symptoms and you have decided "this has to end now."
My name is Michael Hohlweg. I have no medical training, but I believe I have discovered the cause of Diverticulitis!
Allopathic medicine (meaning modern doctors and pharmaceutical companies) teaches that the cause and cure for diverticulitis are a mystery. This is not just my claim. Here are medical website links that prove what I am saying:
I completely agree with doctors and pharmaceutical companies when they admit that they don’t know the cause or cure for diverticulitis. I Asked Myself: “What reaches our colons that could be causing the inflammation? My belief is that It had to be either stomach acid or food, since that is all that reaches the colon. As it turns out, it is both that may be causing the inflammation and damage. Imagine a hay fever patient doing yard work every day for years. Eventually he will have severe respiratory problems and possibly lung infections. His lungs, like your colon, will be inflamed. A doctor may offer nasal sprays, decongestants, and antibiotics. He may feel better, but if he keeps doing yard work, the suffering will continue and the inflammation will get worse. Does this sound like you? Do you keep eating the same foods the same way but hope to somehow get better? We can all tell the “allergy guy” how to get better. Somehow it is harder to fix ourselves. Are you still eating the same way that got you sick in the first place?
My theory is that diverticulitis and diverticulosis are related to stomach acid, just like other digestive disorders. Some others are GERD, heartburn, acid reflux, Crohn’s, colitis, IBD, IBS and celiac disease, to name a few. All these diseases have one thing in common: acid. Acid, in excess, can cause intestinal damage and inflammation. It may also cause the weakening of the colon lining which allows diverticula (pouches) to form. Medical studies agree that these conditions are related to the over- or even under-production of hydrochloric acid by the stomach during digestion.
This is why some of these diseases are even named after their acidic origins, names such as heartburn and acid reflux. Diverticulitis is one member of the acidic disease group. Again, if you want proof from the medical community, here are two internet sources that document the fact that GERD and other stomach disorders are related to stomach acid:
I did my own research and found that diverticular disease exists predominantly in seven countries. The other 180+ countries, with billions of people, have very few cases of diverticulitis. Doubt what I am telling you? Here is what doctors at Cornell University said (paraphrased): 30% to 65% of the population in the “Western world” have this disease. Then they compared that rate to the rate elsewhere — Africa and Asia for example. The disease is epidemic in seven places, almost nonexistent in much of the world. We need a diverticulitis diet/diverticulosis diet and it can be simple! Again, here are the medical citations:
As we proved earlier from the medical websites, doctors are taught that the cause of crohn’s is a mystery. Would you hire a professional in any other field who told you he/she didn’t know the solution to your problem? If your mechanic told you he/she did not know how to fix your car…would you hire them and “hope for the best?”
Will this plan be hard to follow?Pardon me while I switch from enthusiastic researcher and author, to a no-hype father and husband (my wife and daughter are my partners). Although the program is straightforward, changing your eating style is difficult. Yes, there are some who sell capsules, ebooks or crohn’s diets, claiming “cures without effort”. That is not us, this is a real crohn’s diet and you will have to change some things. You will still be able to eat 95% of the foods you are used to, but you will have to exercise restraint and avoid the trigger foods and catalyst food combinations in your chart. Rules are hard to follow but let me ask you this: Is it easy going through your current pain and attacks?
