Can Aloe Vera cure, help, treat or prevent Diverticulum?
The following information is for humans with Diverticulum
Introduction to Diverticulum
Diverticulitis is caused by Diverticulum. This is when the colon and intestinal membranes become inflamed and produce small sacs to the outside of the tract. These sacs are not emptied with normal digestion and cause gases to build up and inflammation to occur - this is Diverticulitis. On the outside this ailment is recognisable by constipation and cramping in the lower abdomen. The ailment can continue in a downward spiral becuase the strain caused by constipation inflames the sacs still further. Causes are usually stress, a lack of fibre and not drinking enough water

Using Aloe Vera for Diverticulum
Switch to a high fibre diet with foods such as carrots, oatmeal, bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, apples, oranges, and baked potatoes which should all help get things moving.
Drink a very high quality Aloe Vera two or three times daily. Generally 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch and last thing before bed. The amount you drink is up to you. Generally speaking start with a small amount (1 desert spoon, 3 times a day) and build it up (at least 2 tablespoons, 3 times a day). If the diverticulitis is severe and the general state of health is poor this may require 1-2 litres per week initially until improvements are seen. A 'maintenance dose of around 60ml two times a day should then suffice.
