Chamomile tea may help reduce intestinal inflammation and the muscle cramping that some people with diverticulitis experience. Fresh chamomile leaves may work better than dried chamomile tea bags -- they can be prepared in the same way as the prepared version. Note that pregnant women, people with ragweed allergies, and those on blood thinners should not drink chamomile tea. If you take any medication or have an existing health condition, talk to your physician before using home remedies.
