The natural remedies for diverticulitis include:

Colloidal silver - It does have some medical uses. It is an effective antimicrobal when applied to people's skin and can kill harmful microbes, including boosting the immune system, treating fungal infections and preventing shingles.

garlic tablet - which is used for many conditions related to the heart and blood system, including high blood pressure, low blood pressure, high cholesterol and coronary heart disease as well as hardening the arteries.
I am not sure about your therapy.

Most of the onset of diverticulitis can be treated with intravenous antibiotics. In some patients with severe disease, fasting, insertion of nasogastric tube and intravenous injection of fluid should be performed. Normal maintenance should keep the bowel movements normal and avoid constipation. For patients with recurrent diverticulitis who are ineffective in medical therapy, surgical treatment may be performed to remove the diseased colon segment.

A very effective natural remedy for the treatment of diverticulitis is colloidal silver. It has natural antibiotic properties and destroys the bacteria, virus and other pathogens present in the body. It even reduces inflammation and repairs the ruptured tissues.
According to National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), scientific evidence doesn't support the use of colloidal silver dietary supplements for any disease or condition. What's worse, it can cause serious side effects, argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin among them.
Colloidal silver is likely unsafe when taken by mouth. The silver can deposit in your organs. Even applied on skin, there's a risk of increased Melanin production.

Garlic tablets, on the contrary, is good.
