  • Dairy including eggs, poultry, milk, yogurt, and cheese.

High-Fiber Foods

After you have maintained a low fiber diet, for a few days, you can gradually introduce foods that are high in fiber. They include fruits, vegetables, cereals, grains, and legumes.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera provides a myriad of health benefits, including treating diverticulitis. It also helps prevent constipation and can be effective in relieving pain and cramping. Aloe vera juice can be found in most food stores. Two ounces of aloe vera daily can do wonders for your health and can help improve and ward off symptoms.
