Diverticulitis, Colitis, and Crohn’s symptoms can end using the Catalyst Food method.

Everyone Told You Diverticulitis, Colitis, and Crohn’s Symptoms are a Life Sentence of Suffering. It is not true!

You suffer from some or all of these: cramping, bloating, acid scaring, inflammation, meal stagnation, diarrhea, constipation, bleeding, acid reflux, and periodic attacks and flare-ups… If you don’t know what to eat and you hate going to the doctor but you need help… If you know that antibiotics hurt your digestive flora, but you have to take them to get over attacks. You are hungry but are afraid to eat. You are not sure what you should and shouldn’t eat. You wonder “why me,” when those around you eat junk food and “get away with it.” Is there an answer or are you somehow just cursed?

Mike Hohlweg

Hi, i'm Mike Hohlweg, author of Pain Free Foods. I have developed an extremely helpful diet for those suffering with diverticulitis and diverticulosis symptoms. We are a family business that strives to help every customer become pain free, inflammation free, symptom free, and attack and flare-up free. Please take five minutes for what might be the most important information any diverticulitis sufferer could ever learn. We will not waste your time…

What are the 8 Most Common Treatment Options for Diverticulitis Sufferers?

  • If you have tried these, you know that they are short lived treatments and do not offer long term relief from diverticulitis.
  • Drink plenty of water. Apply a heating pad or hot water bottle.
  • Consider invasive, risky procedures (-oscopies), or even removal of all or part of the colon (-ectomies).
  • Use antibiotics and other prescription meds and acid blockers.
  • Maintain regular bathroom habits; avoid straining and laxatives.
  • Undergo a clonoscopy, barium enema, X-rays, or scans.
  • Take over the counter pain and acid blocking drugs.
  • High fiber diet, low fiber diet, or a bland diet.

What Your Doctors Are Taught !

Doctors, nutritionists and gastroenterologists consider diverticulitis to be incurable. In fact, if you see a doctor for your diverticulitis or diverticulosis, he/she may have told you that you will get worse over time. Doctors know that diverticular disease (diverticulosis and diverticulitis) is simply a disease of inflammation, which in many cases is so severe that bulges (diverticula) are beginning to rupture through the wall of the patient’s colon.I believe that inflammation of the colon in diverticular disease patients is caused by eating foods I call “Catalyst Foodsand Trigger Foods.”Your time is valuable. Please give me just a couple of minutes to explain why I believe this theory is accurate and why it might be the most important information any diverticulitis patient could know.




My name is Michael Hohlweg. I have no medical training, but I believe I have discovered the cause of Diverticulitis!

What Causes 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?

What Has Everyone Missed?

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:



How Can We Know If Mike’s Theory is Correct?

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:

What Do These 7 Hot Spots Have in Common?

  • With the few facts above, it didn’t take a medical degree to see that the over/under production of acid (and bad food combinations) may well be what is causing diverticulitis inflammation. Could avoiding five “trigger foods” and catalyst food mixes be the solution? I am confident that it is.
  • My next question was: If diet causes diverticulitis, could a diverticulitis diet (and diverticulosis diet) also end diverticulitis symptoms? I tested my theory on myself and for me, the answer was Yes.
    Note: It is not legal to claim a cure for any disease including diverticular disease. I believe that the inflammation that leads to diverticulitis is completely preventable and reversible when we stop eating in a way that causes the inflammation in the first place. I do not call this a cure but rather, an “elimination of symptoms.”
  • For almost two years I tested my diverticulitis diet theories out on myself and two willing friends, who shared my digestive nightmare. Eventually I figured out which foods, when mixed together, seemed to cause all the trouble… I named those “catalyst foods!” I found that we could eat almost any food we wanted, but when we ate any two of the “catalyst foods” at the same time, the results were dramatic… dramatically bad. Sometimes the result was immediate, and sometimes delayed, but the result was always one or more of the following: heartburn, feeling acidic, bloating, horrible cramping, abdominal pain, gas, meals “just sitting there,” discomfort, and toilet “drama.”


Doctors Are Not Your Only Option!

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?
