Living With and Reversing Diverticulitis

Updated: Aug 9, 2022

I had a call with one of my clients last night. She did an 11 day dry fast recently. She’s been dealing with chronic back and hip pain for years now.


Here’s what her urine looked like on day 5 of the dry fast!

Look at all that lymph waste at the bottom! 5 days in and her back/hip pain was gone!

These are her irises, they’re true brown. They should be the color of the lighter brown areas in her irises.


Overall she doesn’t have too many super concerning things going on, but she does have a genetic weakness in her kidneys, making it harder for her body to eliminate lymphatic waste.



There is a lacunae in her kidney and adrenal gland on the right side. Lacunae indicate genetic weaknesses but also indicate that there’s some cellular dehydration going on too.


She’s done multiple fruit fasts, juice fasts and water fasts but nothing makes her pain go away like dry fasting does. Even with weak adrenal glands she feels great when she does them and always makes sure to re-feed her body and rebuild her reserves for a while before jumping into another fast.

When she starts eating again after her dry fast, she normally has a pain in her lower stomach on the right side so that what our phone call was about yesterday.

To me, any pain in the lower stomach region is normally from something going on in the bowels. Especially if there’s no pain at all while not eating food for extended periods of time. As soon as she starts eating something fiberus like and apple and dates, it’s causing pain.

Some people would blame the dry fast and say that going that long without food causes issues in the bowels because they’re not use to digesting fiber after a period of time not eating. that could be true for extended dry fasts and of course it is very important to re-feed the body correctly, which she did. She broke her dry fast with water for 3 days, moved on to coconut water and tried some fruits after that. So my brain automatically goes to “what’s going on inside the colon?”


So I pulled up her irises to check it out and found this little pocket in the bowel wall. Diverticula. this is the only place in her colon where she’s got a little darker hole like structure indicating a bowel pocket and coincidentally the only place her colon is bothering her.


She told me she’s had several colonics dont and every time she has them, that pain in the colon comes back. That Pain after having the address I’ve colonic cleaning out the pocket makes a lot of sense to me. So all this information pieced together is confirming the bowel pocket is the issue here.


This is what diverticulitis looks like inside the colon.
