Problems Of The Appendix


Appendix is a small, finger-like organ present at the junction of the small and the large intestines. In grass-eating animals, it is very well developed and works to digest cellulose. However, in human beings,it is vestigeal (non-functional).

An inflammation (swelling) of the appendix is called appendicitis. It is believed that the rapid rise in the incidence of appendicitis in recent years is the consequence of modernization : highly refined, soft, low roughage diet and sedentary life.

Symptoms of appendicitis include : (1) sudden onset of abdominal pain, initially felt near the navel but ultimately shifting to the right groin, (2) nausea, sometimes followed by vomiting, (3) foul breath, (4) general malaise and fever.

Puttingforth the argument that a swollen appendix may burst into the abdomen causing grave complications, surgeons usually remove the appendix. In medical circles, it is jokingly said that Appendicectomy is to a general surgeon what tonsillectomy is to a ENT surgeon : bread and butter.

Reflex Zone Therapy :

(A) General treatment of the whole body : Start with general treatment as described on page 33.

(B) Specific treatment of the appendix : As shown in the adjoining diagram, the trigger spot for the appendix is located on the right sole, just near the heel.

Place the right foot on the left thigh. On deep probing of the concerned area of the sole, you will be able to determine a sore spot, corresponding with the appendix. With the thumb-tip, give deep, alternating pressure on this spot for about two minutes.

Repeat this treatment twice a day.

(C) For very severe pain, tie small rubber-bands on the 4th and the 5th toes of the right foot for 10-12 minutes. During this period, if a toe starts aching or turns black, remove the concerned band for a while (till the normal colour returns) and then reapply it. If necessary, repeat after an hour.
