6. Undergo a colonoscopy, barium enema, X-rays, or scans.
7. Take over-the-counter pain and acid blocking drugs.

What Your Doctors Are Taught !

Doctors, nutritionists and gastroenterologists consider diverticulitis to be incurable. In fact, your doctor may have told you that your diverticulitis will get worse over time. Doctors know that diverticular disease (diverticulosis and diverticulitis) is simply a disease of inflammation, which in many cases is so severe that bulges (diverticula) are beginning to rupture through the wall of the patient’s colon. I believe this inflammation in diverticular disease patients is caused by eating foods I call “Catalyst Foods" plus 7 "Trigger Foods.” Catalyst foods and trigger foods can easily be eliminated from your diet. 

I believe this program is most important information any diverticulitis patient can discover and I have coached tens of thousands of sufferers with diverticulitis. MH

What Causes Diverticulitis?
A Mystery? I say it is staring us in the face!

Allopathic medicine (modern doctors and pharmaceutical companies) teach: the cause and cure for diverticulitis are unknown. This is not my claim. Here are medical website links that prove what I am saying:

Doctors and pharmaceutical companies admit that they don’t know the cause or cure for diverticulitis. So I Asked: “What reaches our colons that causes the inflammation (the main symptom of diverticulitis)? I believed It had to be stomach acid or food choices, since that is all that enters the colon.

Imagine a man who is a hay fever sufferer who also mows lawns daily for a living. Eventually he will have severe respiratory problems and asthma. His lungs, like your colon, will be inflamed. Inflammation is caused by overdoing or repeating anything that aggravates tissue. You can see what our landscaper is doing wrong. It is just that simple to see what you are doing wrong also. Diverticulitis is inflammation. What do you do every day that is irritating (inflaming) your digestive tract?

What Has Everyone Missed? This Section is Everything!

  • The food and drinks we consume
  • Medications we take
  • The saliva, acid, bile and enzymes our body produces to digest our food and drink

My theory is that diverticulitis and diverticulosis are related to stomach acid. Some other acid related disorders are GERD, heartburn, acid reflux, Crohn’s, colitis, IBD, IBS and celiac disease, to name a few. All these diseases have one thing in common: acid. Acid, in excess, damages the mucosal lining (the colon's protective armor), which in turn causes inflammation. Inflammation in the colon (our septic tank) leads to infection which leads to attacks and flare-ups. It may also cause the weakening of the colon lining which allows diverticula (pouches) to form. Medical studies agree that these conditions are related to the amount of hydrochloric acid produced.

This is why some of these diseases are even named after their acidic origins, such as heartburn and acid reflux. Diverticulitis is one member of the acidic disease group. Again, if you want proof from the medical community, here are two internet sources that document the fact that GERD and other stomach disorders are related to stomach acid:

What's wrong with acid? Nothing, however, enzyme and bile digestion are the preferable methods of digestion in my opinion and they are not damaging to delicate tissues like the esophagus, throat, intestinal cilia stomach valves, and the mucosal lining of the colon.

Yes, the digestive tract is designed to tolerate acid but today we eat so many catalyst meals daily, that instead of enzyme digestion 90% of the time, we digest virtually every meal 3 times per day 365 days per year with hydrochloric acid.  This, in my opinion is the entire problem and cause of almost all digestive disorders. 

Using 7 years of research and  thousands of client testimonials, I confirmed that almost everyone with a digestive disorder suffers from over-production of stomach acid. The proof is heartburn, acid reflux, and/or colon inflammation and pain. So much acid that it bubbles up our throats and is burning through our colon's mucosal lining.

This is why we take antacids all the time, (or suffer). Acid is bloating us, ulcerating us, burning our throats and stomachs and inflaming our colons and yet everyone (even the whitecoats) is missing that it might be the actual cause of diverticulitis. I think it is and no antacid can fix it. 

How Can We Know If Mike's Theory is Correct?

In my 20's, I diagnosed myself with diverticulitis (not big on doctors). At one point in my life, I lived overseas. While I was abroad, I ate local food. After a few weeks, my digestive symptoms simply went away. 

I wondered, why symptoms would disappear just just because I ate differently? 2 years later I returned home to the U.S. and my symptoms came back with a vengeance. It became obvious that my diet that was the problem. 

I researched and found that diverticular disease mainly exists in 7 countries. The other 180+ countries, with billions of people, have very few cases of diverticulitis. Doubt what I am telling you? Here is what doctors at Cornell University said (paraphrased): 30% to 65% of the population in the “Western world” have this disease but it is almost nonexistent in the other 180! This is a working diverticulitis diet, diverticulosis diet and it is just that simple! Again, here are the medical research citations:

Which 7 countries with only 15% of the world’s population have nearly 90% of the worlds Diverticulitis patients? Here they are: If you have Diverticular disease, you are probably from one of the countries below:

What Do These 7 Hot Spots Have in Common?

  • With the few facts above, it didn’t take a medical degree to see that acid (from eating catalyst foods) may well be what is causing diverticulitis inflammation. 
  • For almost two years I tested my diverticulitis diet theories out on myself and two willing friends, who shared my digestive nightmare. Eventually I figured out which exact foods, (over 100 of them) when mixed together, seemed to cause all the trouble… I named those foods “catalyst foods!” I found that we could eat almost any food we wanted, but when we ate any two of the “catalyst foods” at the same time, the results were dramatic… dramatically bad. Sometimes the result was immediate, and sometimes delayed, but the result was always one or more of the following: heartburn, reflux, feeling acidic, bloating, horrible cramping, abdominal pain, gas, meals “just sitting there,” discomfort, and toilet “drama.”

Doctors Are Not Your Only Option!

You are near the end. I strongly suggest you finish.

As we proved earlier from the medical websites, doctors are taught; the cause of diverticulitis is a mystery. Would you hire a professional in any other field who told you he/she didn’t know the cause or solution to your concern? If your mechanic told you he/she had no idea how to fix your car… would you pay them to start working?

 Be Honest Mike, will it be hard to follow this program?   

I am a family man, not really a sales person (my wife and daughter are my partners). I am being painfully honest with you. Although the program is straightforward, changing your eating style is difficult. Anyone telling you differently is not being honest.

What Our Customers Have to Say:

*These testimonials were chosen for their positive outcome and may not represent the typical outcome or result from being on the diet. The overall health and even genetics of the dieter can affect their outcome. Your experience may certainly vary from those who have written these testimonials.*


*Thank You Sonia, I have been reviewing Mikes Video's all day. I am not only impressed, but I feel this is exactly what I need now. My surgeon is great, he took me as far as he can, now I need to have a program like this. He did not rush into surgery until his back was against the wall.To bad for me that I did not know about your family two years ago, when I had such a bad attack that landed me in the hospital for six weeks, emergency surgery and a bag for a year and a half. Now I have had my reversal and never want to back there again.*

* I'm just writing because Sonya asked me to. I have had this diverticulitis for 16 years and tried your book almost three months now. No more attacks or going to the hospital thinking I might die just from pain. Like I said to me it was not easy from first but coached with Mikes daughter and she kept me understanding, no charge for that which was good. My life is not perfect but my diverticulitis is gone or not causing me any pain since after two days from starting. I am grateful to them.*

MARTIN M. 1-1-16


*My daughter has not had a flare up since she has been out of the hospital and on this diet.  She has had some "very slight" pain but no bloating or diarrhea.  We have referred 3 friends to your website and to your program.   Thank you so much!*

DEEANN  7-9-2015


I seem to be getting the hang of this whole thing and feeling better. Thanks again for all of your extra help, the book was great but you being there every step of the way during those first few days was crucial. Best 99 bucks I ever spent. Have a great weekend
