Appendix question

Posted by Barbara on May 31, 2002 at 22:17:22:

I was wondering if the pain of an inflamed appendix can begin as mild say over a period of weeks, or is it usually acute?

Hi, Barbara.

Most chronic "appendix pain" is really due to leakage of the iliocecal valve and it is that leakage that puts the strain on the appendix that can precipitate the acute appendicitis that requires emergency surgery.

Resolving the ICV leakage will stop the process.

Hope this helps.

So there is such a thing as chronic appendox pain? Would this leakage cause mild or sever pain? Over how long a period of time can this leakage go on for and wouldnt this be dangerous? Im not even sure thats what it is, it only occurs after I have awakened, like maybe I laid on that side all night and I get pain from it when I awaken, is this possible? How would one stop the leakage? I looked in the archives before I wrote this and didnt find any of the answers.

Dr Stoll, your book was truly amazing, I have read it twice, thank you for writing it. I do have a question on this...Wouoldnt this leakage cause peritonitis, and couldnt this alos be pre-menopausal pain? At 48 I experienced right side pain above the ovary and at the ovary from the time I ovulated till the onset of my period. This only occurred during the early hours of the day and was dull and mild. Wouldnt there be more symptoms if she was experiencing leakage from the appendix and also severe pain?

Hi, Barbara.

Most of these questions can only be answered by a professional who knows you and has examined you.

However, any Chiropractor can teach you the maneuver used to temporarily close the ileocecal valve AND a tablespoon of pure chlorophyll liquid (available at any healthfood store) 4 times a day will frequently restore competency to the valve.

In the end, only coping with the LGS, that ultimately causes this, can you permanently resolve it.

Let us know how you do.

Thanks, Paulette.

The iliocecal valve is a one-way valve betewen the small intestine and the large intestine RIGHT where the appendix is.

When one has a leaky valve it does not leak into the peritoneal space, where it would produce a surgical emergency, but allows sewage from the colon pass back into the ileum where it is absorbed back into the blood stream.

Hope this helps.

Walt
