I have mild diverticulitis. I had the V.A. examine me, after my hernia operations. The hernia was a large one, a ventral hernia. This means it is a lump above your navel. Jeez it felt like I had a baseball in there!
I had the operation, and that was the cure, for a while. Now I am having more gastric difficulties. I tried Pepto Bismol, I tried Zantacs. These would work, but the Pepto Bismol will give you more diarrhea.
SO.. I tried this green tea. I started with the cheap Green Tea for $1 at apple market. This morning, when I first woke up, I drank about 1/2 cup of coke. It has been my habit to start the day with coffee, and/or coke. I got the same symptom.. my stomach twisting in pain, and then the diarrhea.
So.. I tried some Green Tea for it, and by golly, it seems to work! So I bought some more, a better brand this time, and some Chamomile Tea. By golly .. it seems to be working!
Since 6/28 I’ve been ill. I was driving over the road, but that hernia started giving me excruciating pain. I had a operation. Then the recovery.. ouch. But at least I am not staggering around with that baseball in my stomach.
BIG NOTE.. Even the cheap green tea will work, the $1 box at Apple Market.
Update: I woke up about 0300.. man.. same thing, my bowels irritated, my stomach cramping. One cup, then another cup, Chamomile Tea worked better than any of the drugs that I have on hand.
