Diverticulitis | Stomach and Bowel Issues Cure

My recommendations for those suffering from Diverticulitis or Inflammation in the Bowels/Gastrointestinal tract according to the information that I have been learning from Dr. Robert Morse and The Detox Miracle Sourcebook. Bullet point NEEDS TO KNOW!
  • ALL health issues are caused by EXCESSIVE ACID in the system, ACIDOSIS!
  • The ACID is very damaging to our cells, in fact nothing else damages cells.
  • There are two sides to chemistry ACID and ALKALINE.
  • Inflammation is an Acidosis problem.

All health issues or symptoms of body breakdown called disease by doctors is caused by ACIDOSIS. The ACID will affect the weakest areas of our body first. We all have certain strengths and weaknesses in our body. 

We are not all affected the same by acidosis. Having an Iridology reading of the iris will help understand where these weaknesses are. You can do this yourself by studying and watching YouTube videos or look for a local holistic health clinic that offers one. There are people online who also offer them. Iridology is the study of the eyes to establish where the weaknesses and strengths are in our body. 

More on Acidosis Every choice we make, every emotion producing thought, and every meal we choose is either an acidic activity or an alkaline activity. Negative, resentful, ungrateful thoughts are a highly acid activity which leads to acidic emotions such as anger, fear, depression, etc.. We tend to live more on the acid side rather than the preferred side of alkalinity, and that is why people are so sick all around us, including yourself! Acidosis leads to body breakdown or what doctors call disease. Dead and Killed foods such as animal products are the highest acidic foods we can choose! 

 The second in line is cooked foods such as cooked fruits, veggies, beans/legumes and grains. Cooking foods renders them carcinogenic in some cases as well as changes them on a cellular level. Eating cooked foods has an ACIDIC effect on the body. This is why I am promoting a 100% raw plant based diet, especially fruit. 

Alkalinity The highest alkalizing emotional activities are happiness, joy, gratefulness, positive thoughts, etc. The highest alkalizing foods are FRUITS, BERRIES AND MELONS! Second in line for food is raw veggies, and greens. FRUIT IS HIGHLY ALKALIZING ON THE BODY! A 100% fruit based diet plan is a must for ANY HEALING PROGRAM. Juice fasting can bring faster results but you may still get worse before you get better. 

When you go on a fruit or juice fast your body goes quick to work PURGING YOUR SYSTEM OF ALL OF ITS HEALTH ISSUES! Any symptoms that you observe during a fast such as this is called a healing crisis. You must work through this and let it pass! Some will experience more or less of a healing crisis depending on the level of acidosis they are experiencing. To slow down a detox you can eat some raw veggies, steamed vegetables, or cooked red potatoes, yams and sweet potatoes. This will slow the detox and lesson your detox symptoms. Detox takes time and you can do it fast or slower. 

When we get the ACIDS OUT OF THE WAY, OUR BODY IS THEN FREE TO HEAL ITSELF! Herbs are used along with a fasting program to support the body systems as well as promote healing of the cells! If you are experiencing body breakdown in the stomach, intestines, esophagus you must first work on DETOXIFICATION of ACID WASTE! 

 You will do this by a strict fruit fast! If you can’t tolerate most fruits you need to focus on the ones you can. EAT ONLY THOSE FRUITS OR FRUIT JUICES! This will not be a quick fix and is going to take a while. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL TO HEALTH AND HEALING! THERE IS NO QUICK FIX AND REQUIRES WORK AND EDUCATION ON YOUR PART AS AN INDIVIDUAL. 

 When you are not fasting you can include some veggies, and greens. A diet that is 100% raw plant based is best. After you have eliminated your Diverticulitis you may be able to eat some cooked grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Remember that it is your Standard American Diet that allowed your body to break down in the first place and going back to this will only allow the return of your problems. It has taken a lifetime to get the health issues that you have so we can’t expect a full recovery in even a few months. 

Many of our problems begin on the cellular level at conception because we inherit the glandular weaknesses of our mothers. Such as Adrenal weakness, etc… But that doesn’t mean it can’t be undone. Cells do regenerate and repair even from a lifetime of damage. Most humans don’t think of strengthening their cells, so they keep passing down genetically weak tissue generation to generation. Herbs and proper diet help us strengthen our systems and achieve optimal health. 

Defining the problem:
  • Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach.
  • Enteritis is inflammation of the small intestine.
  • Colitis the inflammation of the colon or large intestine.
Diverticulitis is the inflammation of bowel (intestinal) pockets, which form from our Standard American diet of acid forming foods. 

Gastrointestinal Tract (Digestive and Eliminative Systems) Your GI tract (stomach to anus) is the “hub” of your body. When it fails to do its job because of impactions and inflammation, this can weaken and starve the body. When the GI tract fails, the rest of the body will soon follow. That is what we want to prevent and get a handle on :) The following are just some of the side effects of its failure:
  • When the GI tract becomes toxic, it sends toxicity to all parts of the body
  • Malabsorption and starvation
  • Gastritis, enteritis and or colitis
  • Diverticulitis (when “pockets” are formed from impactions)
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation (also connected to adrenal medulla weakness)
  • Parasites (worms, and others; the unfriendly type)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • GI cancer (now the second most prevalent type of cancer in the US)
  • Appendicitis
  • Lymphatic congestion (blocks proper lymphatic elimination)
  • Nausea upon eating
A diet rich in raw fruits, berries, melons, vegetables and greens is essential to overcoming any issue but especially the ones involved in diverticulitis. So you need to eat what fruits you are currently able to and lots of it as a fast. DO NOT CONSUME ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF RAW FRUITS, BERRIES, MELONS, GREENS OR VEGGIES! 

If you want to see results that is. It is our diet that has gotten us the health issues that we have in the first place and it’s our diet that will bring us out of it. Do a juice fast as long as you can. Take a break by having a green salad or green smoothies. Then go right back to the juice fasting! The Acai Juice and Cherry juice is perfect for this, also fresh grapes blended is a must as well. If a juice fast is to challenging for you to start than start with whole fruits, veggies, greens. Blend them, make smoothies, and eat whole. 

Keep the bowels moving by eating lots of those foods mentioned. This will also begin to clear the bowels because of the high fiber and water content. Below is a list of common symptoms of Adrenal weakness. Please notice each one that you are or have ever experienced. This will tell you what issues are Adrenal related. 

Adrenal Gland Weakness Low adrenal gland (medulla) function causes low blood pressure from inefficient neurotransmitters and starts a process of nerve disorders, breathing problems, and heart arrhythmia. Low adrenal gland (cortex) function causes insufficient steroid production leading to acidosis and inflammation. The cause… 

In Females:
  • Ovarian cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, uterine cancer
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Conception problems
  • Miscarriage
  • Menstrual bleeding problems
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Osteoporosis
  • Unchecked inflammation
In Males…
  • Prostate cancer
  • Erection problems
  • Testosterone dominance
  • Prostatitis
In Females and Males…
  • Scleroderma
  • Bursitis and arthritis
  • Spinal and pelvic inflammation
  • Lower back weakness
  • Sciatica
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney and bladder weakness
You can begin to see how inflammation is developed in the body through diet and hormone imbalance (from glandular weakness) This inflammation leads to tissue failure and tissue death. This is why it is essential that our endocrine gland system functions properly and remain in balance. When the endocrine glands become hypo (under) or hyper (over,) active this creates many disease symptoms. 

 Our Adrenals are extremely important! This is because they produce neurotransmitters, which are essential for brain and nerve function. These include epinephrine (adrenaline), norepinephrine, and dopamine. All these affect our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system (the two divisions of the autonomic nervous system), turning nerve responses on or off. This affects almost all tissues in the body, including heart, vascular system, intestines, skin and kidneys. Low blood pressure (systolic under 118) is always an indicator of adrenal weakness, and at least %50 of high blood pressure cases reflect adrenal (medulla) weakness as well. 

A healthy blood pressure is 120-130 systolic (top number) and 60-70 diastolic (bottom number). The second important part about the adrenal glands is in the cortex (outer portion) that produces cortical-type steroids or hormones. These hormones include corticoids (cortisol and cortisone for carbohydrate utilization); aldosterone (regulating our electrolytes, sodium and potassium.; estradiol (an estrogen); and progestins (including progesterone). Many of these steroids act as anti-inflammatory compounds, which are vital to combating anti-inflammatory processes within the body. 

These steroids affect muscle, nerve, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular tissues. Cortisol aids in the conversion of fat and protein to glucose. If you have Adrenal weakness you may not tolerate well fatty meats, fish, etc..They may hurt your stomach. You may not metabolize these foods well due to Adrenal weakness! Also cortisol is one of the adrenal glands (glucocorticoid) steroids that mediates inflammation. 

Catabolic breakdown processes in the body generally cause acidosis, hense inflammation in the body especially the GI tract. This damage stimulates the adrenal glands to increase cortisol production, which can cause further inflammation. The Cortisol is what effects the blood pressure. It affects the muscles, heart, and it can also lower the TSH further affecting your thyroid hormone production. 

Our thyroid is responsible for our calcium utilization. Caffeine soda, and tea (the tea leaf kind with caffeine) enhances the production of excessive cortisol. Because of that cortisol also affects the aging process, promotes osteoporosis, etc.. These problems especially inflammation which in another word is really just acidosis is caused by a lifetime or long period of time of consuming acidosis promoting foods mentioned above. Acidosis and inflammation is essentially the same thing! 

The issues that you are having as stated above in my opinion is an acidosis/inflammation problem. Remember our body can eliminate the toxins, acid and reduce or eliminate the inflammation but we have to allow it too. We have to do the things necessary to help our body. In my opinion using medications, having surgery or procedures WILL NOT GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM! ACIDOSIS AND INFLAMMATION WILL REMAIN AND YOU WILL CONTINUE DOWN A ROAD OF MORE ILLNESS NOT LESS. 

 Doctors don’t know what I am telling you and what I have learned from Dr. Morse. This is not in the realm of medicine, which only treats symptoms, but not the cause of the symptoms. The information contained here on my blog and in this post is in the realm of the science of how our human bodies work and what our symptoms tell us. Listen to your body and read your symptoms. 


 In addition to your fruit and juice fasting you must consume herbs and herbal remedies. In you can blend fresh herbs into your juices or blend the herbs with a little water and take as a shot several times per day. You can also take tinctures, extracts, teas, and capsules. Here are some useful herbs that are readily available, even at the grocery store. Herbs like the ones below can also be used in smoothies, juices, teas, infusions, etc..  


Parsley leaf and root 
Dandelion Greens or root 
Licorice Root 


 Ginger Flax seed 
 Chamomile Peppermint 

 These are some good ones for you to use. The above herbs are ones that you can easily get fresh and can include them in juices or make shots out of them in your blender. You may or may not be able to tolerate some of these currently. Below is information about getting the right herbs in an already prepared form from Dr Morse which are really good quality and work well. 

I am currently on my own licorice root and elderberry tinctures as well as I am taking Dr Morse’s Adrenal Tonic Capsules. The rundown and herbal recommendations: But to get right to the GI tract which seems to be the chronic problem right now you will need to cleanse the GI tract, and get rid of the inflammation!

I recommend starting with The Heal All Tea it is great for any issue. It has herbs for detoxification as well as lymphatic system strengthening, and much more. You can also get Dr. Morse’s Stomach and Bowel capsules. The Stomach and Bowel capsules have herbs that will cleans the GI tract as well as get rid of inflammation. For best results use with a fasting program as I have indicated. Also a good step to take later after using the Stomach and Bowel capsules would be the GI Broom. GI Broom cleans the bowels super well helps you to detox from sulfur toxicity.

  • DETOXIFICATION; Get rid of the acidosis and toxins by your juice fasting.
  • Then use herbs to cleanse the GI tract and remove the inflammation causing your discomfort.
  • Use an herbal bowel formula to get rid of inflammation and heal the GI tract.
  • Chamomile or peppermint tea is great for inflamed bowels. (remember to get the ones that do not have anything other than the herb as an ingredient)
  • Aloe Vera juice is also helpful for bowel inflammation, but may cause loose stool.
  • Slippery Elm and Marshmallow root can also reduce inflammation in the bowels.

Formulas that can aid you along your healing from Diverticulitis and other Gastrointestinal trouble; 

Dr MorseDr Morse’s Heal All Tea contains Marshmallow root, and many other beneficial herbs for detox, and healing. Drink 4 cups per day the directions on the bag :) I make all 4 cups at night or in the morning and drink it all day. Use a glass jar and keep it in the fridge. You can bring it to work and drink it daily. In addition to your Adrenals, you will also want to work on Kidney and bladder, Lymphatic system, and Endocrine Balance. You can get all four remedies in the Fab 4 Kit which is $102 plus shipping. That way you have it all and can get down to the root of all the issues you are having. Each formula is about $27 each plus shipping. When you first get the Dr. Morse Membership it is $10 dollars but you get this back on your first order. So if you get the Fab 4 kit you will get the ten back on that purchase. That may be something you should do. The best part about getting them all at once is that you only pay shipping once so in the long run it’s cheaper. You may want to continue on these formulas for 3-6 months to get the most benefit but we can get to that when we get to it. These formulas save time and money because otherwise we would be buying all the herbs individually, make tinctures that take 6-8 weeks to use. For information about getting these herbs see Don’t worry about calories, nutrition, or eating too little or too much, YOUR FASTING! Just focus on your fasting, and herbal consumption so you can detox and heal. You will lose weight, but do not worry! Once you have healed you can rebuild your body by eating lots of raw fruits, berries, melons, veggies, greens and seeds or nuts. Continue with your vitamin supplementation as well, if you are taking any. But I recommend a whole food, good quality supplement. Be patient and focused because this may take a while, but you are worth it and you don’t want to end up on drugs and having surgery or procedures. It’s up to you :) I am confident that if you do everything outlined here you will get better, feel better, and get you health under control. I am here to help. It will take practice and time for you to get a hang of the regiment of fasting, using herbs, and such but you can do this!

Below, or on the next pages are a couple more beneficial things you can begin doing. Dry Fasting Dry fasting is a great way to open up the kidneys to filtration as well as I feel and have experienced it opens up the bowels as well. All you do to dry fast is STOP ALL LIQUIDS AND FOODS 2-4 HOURS BEFORE BED AND CONTINUE THIS IN THE MORNING UNTIL YOU HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT IF YOU CAN. If not just make it a 10-15 hour fast for starters especially on days you don’t have to work because you may want to have your juices and fruits in the morning. You can bring a huge jug of juice and your jar of Heal All to work with you to keep up your energy and detox. Dry fasting is also a good thing to do if your stomach and bowels are really bothering you. Then continue with your juice and fruit fasting, as well as the Heal All Tea. Also get your body moving by taking a nice walk around your community as often as you can. Anything that moves the body will heat it up and move lymphatic waste especially when you sweat. Heat Therapy Use heat to open up the lymphatic system also. You can take hot and cold showers where you use hot water for a short time and then turn it cold, alternating the hot and cold. Do this about 8 times when you take a shower. Another form of heat therapy is sauna, hot tub, or just sitting out in the shade on a hot day drinking your juice :) I am looking forward to this myself this summer. The point of heat therapy is to get the body hot so it stimulates the lymphatic system and promotes the sweating out of acid waste. Our skin is our third kidney and essential as the kidneys are in detoxification. Dry Brushing Get a dry skin brush and brush your dry skin a couple times per day. This also promotes lymphatic drainage of waste. Here is a step by step for Dry Brushing: To get started, follow the simple steps below: 1. Purchase a natural (not synthetic) bristle brush with a long handle so can reach all areas of your body. 2. Get naked and stand in a bathtub or tiled surface to catch the falling skin. (Dry brushing before a shower is a great time to start) 3. Begin brushing by starting at your feet and moving in long sweeping motions toward your heart. Always brush toward your heart. 4. Brush several times in each area, overlapping as you go. 5. Take care as you brush over more sensitive areas, like breasts. Your skin will become less sensitive the more you dry brush. 6. Once you've brushed your entire body, jump in the shower. (I like to alternate between the hottest water temperature I can tolerate and the coldest. This stimulates blood circulation, bringing more blood to the top layers of the skin.) 7. After getting out of the shower, pat dry skin and apply a natural fruit oil like rosehip or coconut oil. (do not use a lotion that may be full of toxic chemicals, coconut oil is the best alternative to lotion) 8. Continue to dry brush your entire body every day. Twice a day is recommended for best results. Remember to clean your brush with soap and water once a week. Leave to dry in a clean, sunny spot to avoid any mildew accumulation on your brush.
