I’d just as soon trust my medical care to Dr. Granny.

At least Dr. Granny on the “Hillbillies” had her rumatiz medicine, aka moon shine, white lightning, mountain dew etc.

She would be able to give you enough medicine, not to get you well at all, you would still die, but at least you wouldn’t give a damn.

One of the administrators should remove this last post. Its seems like a blatant attempt to send you to a commercial pharmacy site.

Well this thread starter is exactly the type of crap that gets spilled all over my elderly and “easily manipulated” patients. Pathetic.
Loved your responses to it though.  grin

Thank you, I found this article useful and informative.  It is not suggesting you should NOT go to get surgery for appendicitis, it is saying that if caught early enough surgery can be PREVENTED by non-invasive, less dangerous, and much less expensive, nutritional treatments.  If that is quackery then I am a duck.

Unfortunately if you followed this advice you would be a dead duck. You can not prevent the need for surgery with diet once you have appendicitis and if you delay surgery while you try this nonsense you increase the odds of a ruptured appendix leading to peritonitis and death. The article is ill informed and dangerous to gullible people who read it and are foolish enough to believe it.

How to Treat Appendicitis With Natural Medicine?

I have no idea what “Natural Medicine” is supposed to be, but in the context of this discussion, the only medical tool you need if you follow the advice in the article is a shovel to dig the grave.

The whole concept of naturopathy is pseudoscientific woo based on an unproven “force” called vitalism which is outside the realm of real science. No one can can simply “think” themselves free of cancer or other diseases or combine positive thoughts with a coffee enema in order to maintain a physiological balance. LiquorIce pills may be tasty but won’t cure heart disease. This garbage is becoming lucrative for those who push it as well. People are rushing to get degrees in naturopathy and sell their placebos to unwary and trusting customers. Caveat emptor. I suggest duck should visit his namesake quackwatch.

Since we’ve got a few genuine medical types here, and the subject is appendicitis, one thing I’ve heard (with no scientific evidence to back it up), is that people with low fiber diets tend to be at greater risk of appendicitis. Is that accurate or not?

It would be difficult to do a controlled trial for this question so what limited info that is out there is all based on retrospective studies.

This study came to the conclusion that lower fiber diets tended to be associated with higher rates of appendicitis.

Here is another very small study that came to the same conclusion.

Keep in mind as always that an association in no way proves cause and effect

No, it’s not. I heard from a best friend who’s best friend’s best friend’s brother-in-law’s grandmother got appendicitis and was a high-fiber foods fanatic.  long face

I know them, too, George, but you have to consider that her husband didn’t get appendicitis, although he did get prostate cancer.  Do you think high fiber is gender specific?  LOL
