Far and away one of the most common digestive problems
people write to us about is diverticulitis.
The standard treatment
The standard treatment of diverticulitis--a round of
antibiotics, pain killers, a liquid diet, and then slowly
foods as tolerated.
All this "treatment" does is carry you miserably through
the current attack. It does NOTHING to prevent future
So you end up being a walking time bomb, dreading the
possibility of another attack.
And if attacks do keep on happening, you become a prime
candidate for surgery--getting a chunk of your colon
But even that's not a cure-all because diverticulitis can
recur, and you'll be back at square one again.
Some doctors also advise their patients to avoid good
foods like nuts, seeds and raw vegetables because they may
become "stuck" in the diverticula and cause an attack.
That advice is completely unfounded and more of an old
wives' tale--there is no evidence to support that nuts,
seeds or any other foods get stuck and cause diverticulitis
attacks. The Mayo Clinic, among thousands of other
institutions, acknowledges that.
The REAL treatment
The REAL answer for diverticulitis lies not in drugs,
surgery, avoiding good foods or battling each attack as it
It's in keeping your digestion efficient to prevent
And that is accomplished with 2 steps:
Step 1: Eating a correctly combined, low-acid diet
When you eat mainly alkaline foods and food combinations
that don't cause overproduction of acid, your digestion is
accomplished the way it should be...the way Nature designed
Foods are broken down efficiently and thoroughly by your
stomach, so when they pass to the intestines, digestion can
be completed easily and nutrient absorption can begin.
What this results in is wastes that move through the
intestines smoothly, without constipation or feces buildup
on your colon wall.
And that helps minimize irritation to any existing
diverticula you might have, as well as helping to prevent
any new diverticula from forming.
Now THAT is what anyone with diverticulitis wants to hear!
When you can minimize the chances of ever having another
diverticulitis attack, you no longer have to walk around in
fear or dread the possibility of life-changing surgery.
The Great Taste No Pain system can help make this a
reality for you.
The GTNP manuals teach you the few simple principles you
need to know to correctly combine all of your meals, as
well as show you which foods are acid-forming to your body
and which are alkaline.
You'll see this in the manual, 'Foods That Create Acid,
Foods That Take It Away.'
Step 2: Keeping your intestinal flora balanced
When your intestines are overrun by harmful bacteria, that
creates the perfect breeding ground for infection--and
that's especially a concern for someone with diverticulitis.
But when you supplement with probiotics, that helps
restore and maintain a good population of beneficial
bacteria in your gut.
These beneficial bacteria fight dangerous infection-
causing pathogens, as well as compete with harmful bacteria
for space along your colon wall and starve them out.
They also help in the digestive process, further ensuring
that your digestion is efficient and your wastes move along
like they should.
All great news for diverticulitis sufferers.
Reduced infection risk + better digestion = No more
Plus probiotics can help you counteract the harmful
affects of antibiotics--so if you've recently had a
diverticulitis attack and were given antibiotics, it's
imperative to take a high quality probiotic supplement.
Super Shield probiotic formula can help you accomplish
this very important goal of proper flora balance.
Super Shield contains 13 well-researched strains of
beneficial bacteria that are ready to pitch in and help
your digestion as well as fight off the "bad guys" and keep

PS: Joan is feelin' good at 73 in Western Australia:
Thank you for all the work you have obviously put in to
help others suffering with stomach and bowel problems.
I have diverticulitis and was once more taking antibiotics
and suddenly had another sudden bout of embarrassing
diarrhea and the terrible pain. I decided to look on the
internet to see what foods I should NOT BE EATING and I
came upon your site.
I am new to the computer as my son had recently given me
his. At 73 years of age I'm not exactly brilliant on it,
but I must have asked the right question of google, because
I came upon your site.
I was so surprised to find how much better I was after
using your plan. I have told so many people that I am sure
you must have had a lot more enquiries from Western
I must admit occasionally I have thought oh I will just
divert from the plan and paid the price. I now know that
your Great Taste No Pain books are definitely the only way
