I was thirty five when first diagnosed with diverticulitis. It was an expensive issue after cat scans, emergency room morphine, and follow up appointments. The Dr told me at my age if I come see him again about this problem it's straight to the OR. So the next time I felt the tenderness, piercing pain in the same spot I began to panic. Who wants to be operated on right? I knew I could flush my system by chugging tomato juice in just one or two glasses, but the infection, I remebered some info I had read about vinegar having had some anti-bacterial, anti-septic, anti-viral, and ant-fungal properties. And I knew I had pickles in the fridge. So needless to say I chugged the quart jar of pickle juice, in about 12 hours I knew I made the right decision because the pain was going away, that evening. The next day I still felt the constipation, and drank tomato juice, couple Tylenol, pushed clear fluids and stayed as active as I dared, it took about 8 hours and then I knew I was on to something. For me this works so far I haven't been back to see a dr for this issue its been 3 years. However other times I wanted to long to drink the vinegar and it made my recovery time last longer by couple days even missed couple days work to recover sick in bed sick, so timing is key for me sooner the better. I can say I understand the pain, I knew when it's coming, and I stay prepared.
This is my story, I would like to know if anyone has tried this or would be willing to try it or ponder the idea? Thoughts? I hope it helps. That's my 2 cents.
