Herbal Medicines For Diverticulitis Ulcers, and Appendicitis

Diverticulitis
This condition is often triggered by constipation and irregular bowel movements. Little "pouches" form in the walls of the large intestine and can get clogged with fecal material and become infected. Symptoms include pain in the lower abdomen and bloating.
Treatment
Diet and Nutrition Follow a whole food diet, high in fiber, and drink plenty of water. Avoid coffee and alcohol. Eat at least three cloves of raw garlic a day.
Herbal Medicine Slippery elm can soothe the inflamed lining of the intestine.
Massage, Acupuncture, and Reflexology All these can help ease constipation.
Ulcers
A layer of mucus normally protects the inner walls of the digestive system from the acid used to break down food. If this protective layer becomes too thin, or breaks down, an ulcer can develop at the site. Symptoms can vary according to the type of ulcer: a gastric (stomach) ulcer involves acute pain in the top part of the abdomen soon after eating, sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting and, in severe cases, by blood, either vomited or in the feces, which appear black and tarry; a duodenal ulcer causes less acute pain, slightly lower down, usually on the left side of the body, up to two hours after eating.
Treatment
Diet and Nutrition Cut down on foods known to cause ulcers - alcohol, coffee, and tea, for example. Avoid aspirin and products containing aspirin: they can irritate the stomach lining. Eat regularly and slowly and avoid hot, spicy foods. Small, frequent meals are best. Avoid smoking, or give it up entirely if you can.
Herbal Medicine
Marshmallow, coriander, camomile, lemon balm, and celery juice are recommended.
