Ayurvedic Treatment For Diverticulitis In Nagpur

About Diverticulitis

Diverticula are bulging sacs or small blisters that appear in the lining of your large intestine or colon. This condition is called diverticulosis when the sacs first appear but aren’t yet inflamed or infected. When these sacs get acutely infected or inflamed, it’s called diverticulitis.

Diverticula are most common in the large intestine. However, they can develop anywhere in your digestive tract. Pain in the lower left side of your abdomen may indicate diverticulitis, especially when it’s accompanied by rectal bleeding. This condition is treatable, but it can recur. Diverticulosis and recurring attacks of diverticulitis are the two components of diverticular disease.

Causes Diverticulitis

No one knows exactly what causes diverticula, but eating a diet that’s low in fiber is thought to contribute to the formation of the sacs. Eating fiber with proper hydration helps soften your stool. Soft stools are easier to pass.

A low-fiber diet can cause problems such as constipation. With constipation, more pressure is needed to pass your stool. Doctors believe that increased colon pressure can lead to the development of diverticula. Diverticulitis occurs when fecal matter lodged in the diverticula and causes infections.


Not eating enough fiber

Taking fiber supplements or eating more fresh vegetables and bran products can help. You should try to consume at least 20 to 25 grams of fiber per day, which is roughly 5 servings of fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains.Not eating enough fiber is a common problem in countries where much of the population eats processed foods. This includes the United States.


Constipation puts a strain on your muscles during a bowel movement. Constant strain can increase your risk of developing diverticula in your colon. Once diverticula appear, it’s much more likely that bacterial infections or stool can get into the diverticula and inflame or infect them, causing diverticulitis.


Being obese increases your risk of getting diverticulitis. One study concluded that a high body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference contributed to diverticular bleeding and diverticulitis.


One-third of Americans over the age of 60 will develop diverticulitis, according to Harvard Health Publications. It’s not known why age makes you more susceptible to diverticulitis. However, it could be related to the weakening of the bowels over time.


Sudden pain on the lower left side of the abdomen is the most common and most severe sign of diverticulitis. This pain can get worse over a few days.

Other signs of diverticulitis are:

  • abdominal pain and tenderness, usually on the lower left side
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • fever
  • gas or bloating
  • diarrhea
  • loss of appetite
  • rectal bleeding that’s usually bright red
