When my husband had diverticulitis, I researched and heard of the company Listen to Your Gut: the owner and founder jinni had healed herself from Chrons disease which is pretty stunning
She created a half-elemental shake called Absorb Plus that my husband is using up to these days:
Absorb Plus can be used either exclusively as an elemental diet or together with regular food. Elemental shakes were first developed by NASA as a way to feed astronauts in space; because they provided all their nutrient requirements, yet resulted in minimal fecal matter. Since then, the medical community has utilized elemental, or enteral nutritional shakes for various conditions – like inducing remission in Crohn’s or colitis, clearing an intestinal obstruction or diverticulitis blockage, or for people who have trouble chewing, swallowing, or absorbing nutrients from their food.
What is a Half Elemental diet:
Half Elemental Diet
A half elemental diet is one in which half of your daily nutritional requirements are supplied through an elemental liquid diet, and the other half through solid food. Researchers have established that half-elemental diets significantly lower the occurrence of relapses (symptom flare-up) in Crohn’s disease – see the study here. So those without the willpower, or the need, to do a full elemental diet, still have a good chance of avoiding flare-ups from only a half-elemental diet.
