Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, the small finger shaped tube projecting from the large intestine near where it joins the small intestine .
It may have some immune function but is a non essential organ.
Appendicitis most commonly occurs in the ages between 10 and 30 years.
It is thought that a blockage in the appendix may cause enlargement,
inflammation and infection.
If untreated this can lead to rupturing of the appendix , peritonitis, infertility and even septicemia.
Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting and severe pain in the lower (or higher) right abdomen as well as fever. These symptoms may vary widely .
Symptoms may be confused with the pain of ovarian cysts.
It is important never to give laxatives .
Traditionally Slippery Elm herb in the form of tablets or powder has been used to nutritionally support the body in dealing
with any ulceration, soreness, irritation and swelling of the organ.
On an emotional level it is important to be aware there may be some fear of the good in life
when the appendix is involved.
