Background: Alcohol use is prevalent and may be a risk factor for diverticulitis. Therapeutic interventions that support the elimination of addictive behaviors and reduce disease progression include diet, supplement, and psychosocial interventions.
Case presentation: This case report highlights a client with successful treatment of abscess, bowel blockage, and inflammation in a 54-yr-old Caucasian male using medical nutrition therapy while continuing conventional treatment as prescribed by his medical provider. Over the course of 85 days, his treatment was augmented with a high-phytonutrient, high-fiber, Mediterranean style diet. Alcohol was eliminated, caloric intake was increased, while emotional support, physical activity, and a multivitamin were added. Upon final follow-up, the client had a remarkable reduction in symptoms and addictive behaviors.
Conclusion: Diet, supplement, and psychosocial interventions may be useful in the management of inebriate patients with diverticulitis. Population-based clinical studies should be done to understand the role of these therapies.
