Appendicitis is a chronic or acute medical condition where the appendix gets inflamed and causes severe pain.  If left untreated, the condition can prove to be fatal. The appendix is a small tube-shaped sac at the end of the large intestine. In humans, it is typically not known to have any functional value although some studies suggest that it helps digestion by creating a conducive environment for friendly bacteria.

Surgical removal of the appendix is suggested as the most common treatment for the ailment. But homeopathy treatment for appendicitis issues is also available. One of the key causes of appendicitis is believed to be the partial or complete obstruction at the mouth of the appendix.

The common causes of obstruction include accumulation of fecal matter, worms, enlarged lymphoid follicles, trauma, or tumors. It is also possible that an infection in the stomach could have extended into the appendix.

Appendicitis can be treated with homeopathic medicine, it is commonly detected because of its progressive worsening pain in the stomach which narrows down to the lower right side of the abdomen is called Mc Burney point. Half of the patients though do not have this typical symptom and instead come in with a complaint of gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection, or even a kidney stone.
