Appendicitis is an inflammation of the mucosa of the appendix which, when obstructed by pus, may break and reach the peritoneum, leading to peritonitis. When appendicitis is acute, requires emergency surgery. Appendicitis happens for several reasons: the main one because of poor diet, high in toxins, junk food or processed and bad fats that accumulate in the appendix, causing toxemia or infection that can lead to peritonitis.
The symptoms of appendicitis are characterized by pain in the lower right side of the abdomen, and usually there is nausea or vomiting with mild fever and slow intestinal transit. By touching the painful area, the abdominal wall contracts spontaneously.
Surgery should be avoided. You can do a lot through diet and habits to maintain a healthy appendix and help recovery. However, when surgery is necessary, then some care must be taken to make the recovery successful.
Usually, length of stay at the hospital is usually short, lasting between 2 to 6 days depending on the person and the type of surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia and with the help of an optical tube equipped with a vision system (endoscope) inserted in the abdomen. The abdominal incision is usually small and remain only a barely visible scar. Convalescence is usually short but you have to take certain precautions.
In fact, the appendix plays only a minor role in the functioning of the digestive tract, taking part in the development of immunity. So its removal does not create many imbalances, but it is something to keep in mind since you will have to take care of what you eat.
It is important that your diet is very healthy and with quality, so your intestines and colon are always very clean and in good at working. Note that if you had appendicitis, this means that many toxins and toxic waste were accumulating in your intestines, so it is important to watch your diet to prevent this.
You can use this time to thoroughly clean your intestines and help a very effective recovery. It is best to avoid these foods for 3 months:
After the three months diet, try to avoid the prohibited foods. You can include meat but gradually, and always served with fresh salads. Cow's milk should be replaced by vegetable milks which are more nutritious, and keep fruit consumption. Drink two liters of pure water daily and do not forget to exercise to keep the intestinal flow in excellent condition.
