Did you know that 35% of the US population under 50 years and 58% of the population over 60 years, are afflicted by Diverticulitis? Diverticulitis is one of the most-common colorectal conditions in the Western world.
An unhealthy colon or one which is damaged by poor lifestyle and diet develops pouch-like bags on the digestive system walls. These bag-like formations are called diverticula. If the diverticula are infected and inflamed, the condition is called Diverticulitis.
