How to Cure Lower Abdominal Pain Naturally in Females and in Males

DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR CANCER OR ANY OTHER DISEASE.

This article focuses on an often overlooked cause of lower abdominal pain to help readers think about their pain critically with the idea in the mind that they can probably overcome their pain, even if the pain is caused by cancer or some other serious disease. What I mean to say is that pain is often something that people try to ignore for as long as possible because conventional medicine provides only scary reasons for why the pain exists and scary treatments that put patients into a state of denial. So this article is about creative reasons why a person might have lower abdominal pain, low back pain, or pelvic pain along with natural treatments for lower abdominal pain, pelvic pain, and low back pain that will tend to cure a variety of health problems even if the patient never knows what those health problems actually are. After all, it’s hard to look for an answer to the question, “why do I have lower abdominal pain?” if you know that a Google search is inevitably going to tell you that you probably have cancer.

There are a number of relatively harmless reasons why you might have lower abdominal pain (or pain in the lower back or pelvis). One of those reasons pertains to the appendix, a tiny worm-shaped sac that sits in the lower right abdomen (though I should note that the appendix rises up to a higher position in the abdomen in pregnant women). Most people give little thought to the appendix if they aren’t have a full on appendicitis attack, but the truth is, the appendix is a tiny structure in the body that can silently cause a number of problems from digestive issues and bladder irritation to fertility problems. There’s a ton of scientific research out there with doctors documenting case studies where the appendix was causing this health problem or that health problem, but this information hasn’t been gathered into one coherent place where readers can really consider the possible role that the appendix is playing in their health problems. And we also wanted to provide at-home treatment options for our readers’ consideration too to address health issues that might be caused by the appendix.

The appendix is a tiny bit of tissue that hangs off the large intestine at the entrance into the final transit that digested food makes toward excretion and its exit from the body. The appendix is famous for causing “appendicitis”, a medical problem that is typically treated via appendectomy, but few people, including doctors, are aware of the fact that some people have chronic, recurrent, low-level appendicitis, or inflammation of the appendix that comes and goes and that doesn’t necessarily require surgical intervention. The topic of appendicitis becomes particularly important in regard to how a low-level inflammation of this tiny bit of tissue can affect the reproductive organs, the urinary tract, and the intestines. If you suffer from any of the following diseases or disorders, consider the possibility that low-level inflammation of the appendix may be a contributing factor in the disease and perhaps even the root cause:

 

 

Gynecological Diseases Simulate Appendicitis and Vice Versa

 

Women are disproportionately misdiagnosed when it comes to chronic appendicitis. Many women who suffer from particularly painful menstrual periods may not be properly screened to determine if their appendix is swollen or infected and instead they may be prescribed birth control pills or other hormone altering tools that do nothing to control their pain. This is unfortunate, because reproductive hormone treatments simply won’t work to treat an inflamed appendix and an appendix that is chronically inflamed may contribute to the problem of infertility or perhaps even other reproductive organ issues in women. Indeed, an inflamed or infected appendix may tunnel through the fascia to infect other organs or even “dump” infectious waste into organs such as the uterus or the bladder. Though this is a rare problem (or so it seems), patients who are misdiagnosed with seemingly untreatable, incurable diseases like interstitial cystitis need to be aware of alternative medicines that can use to self-doctor and cure chronic appendicitis at home.

 

Making the right diagnosis of appendicitis (either acute or chronic) over a gynecological disease is a difficult task for physicians. A number of studies exist on this topic though you’d never know it as a patient and as a consumer of conventional medicine. The fact exists that women with appendicitis are often misdiagnosed with some other gynecological disease for lack of understanding by doctors, or because the nuances of women’s health and how it differs from men’s health is often ignored by general practitioners. Even gynecologists are likely to misdiagnose their female patients who have appendicitis with a gynecological problem because these doctors are so focused on finding a reproductive organ malfunction as the presenting cause of disease.

 

Of course, a woman may receive a misdiagnosis with appendicitis when, in fact, her health issue is gynecological. And she may receive a gynecological diagnosis when, in fact, her actual diagnosis should be either chronic appendicitis or acute appendicitis. Patients who are aware of the fact that the appendix can cause or contribute to reproductive organ dysfunction or to pain in the same areas of the body where reproductive organs reside can reduce the number of misdiagnoses by calling their doctor’s attention to the possibility of other possible diagnoses for their health problems.

 

As a woman, you shouldn’t be shy about looking for diagrams of organs that show how they sit next to each other in the body. Show these pictures to your doctor. He or she may not be thinking about how the bladder might impact the appendix or how the appendix might impact the ovaries even though the appendix and the ovaries and bladder basically sit touching each other inside the body.

Men’s Health Misdiagnoses and Appendicitis

Though women are more likely to be misdiagnosed in regard to appendicitis and gynecological diseases, men also experience misdiagnoses that are worth mentioning here. For one thing, it’s a misconception that more women experience interstitial cystitis than men. Studies have actually shown that this isn’t the case, but actually, that men may be diagnosed with prostatitis when, in fact, they have inexplicable and intense bladder irritation (cystitis). Indeed, one of the case studies that we featured above described a situation where the appendix had created a fistula (a tunnel) into the bladder to dump the infection and relieve pressure in the appendix. The patient in this case study experienced the appendix issues as “cystitis” and was not properly diagnosed by a doctor in order to treat the real problem (an infection in the appendix).

 

Men who have had appendicitis have an increased risk of prostate cancer which should give men pause to consider the relationship between their own reproductive organs and the appendix. If you’ve had appendicitis or if you suspect appendicitis as a cause for lower abdominal pain or pelvic pain that won’t go away even after treatment from a doctor, consider the treatments that we talk about at the end of this article. Also, be sure to download and read our Catalog of Cancer Cures series. The first volume of the Cancer Cure Catalog is a free download while the other three volumes can be purchased in our store. The Cancer Cure series provides detailed information about scientifically proven cancer cures that people have been using for over 100 years to cure this disease, despite the AMA’s efforts at covering up the information. 

 

Lower Right Ab Pain in Both Men and Women: Case Studies

 

Inflammation of the appendix that recurs regularly may cause symptoms like pain in the middle or right side of the abdomen or even in the lower back that both doctors and patients can mistake for something else such as a urinary tract infection, interstitial cystitis, or menstrual pain (in women). Fertility issues, in fact, may emanate from low-level inflammation of the appendix because of the appendix’s location near reproductive organ tissues such as the ovaries. If you have lower abdominal pain that your doctors have not been able to successfully treat, it may be beneficial for you to take a closer look at the location of the appendix in your pelvis and consider other organs that may be interacting with the appendix in unusual ways. Encourage your doctor to be more creative in their diagnostic efforts if your lower abdominal pain resists treatment. Or try some of the at-home treatments for lower abdominal pain that will address a wide variety of possible causes for the pain. We discuss these at-home treatment strategies for appendicitis at the end of this article.

 

Case Study #1

Two case studies detail some of the signs and symptoms of recurrent, chronic appendicitis. In one case study, a 28 year old woman had been prescribed the vaginal ring as a hormonal treatment to control her so-called “menstrual pain” which had motivated her to visit doctors for several different visits over the preceding 2 years. This woman didn’t experience fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hematuria, urinary discomfort, or vaginal discharge. Rather, she’d experienced a right-sided abdominal pain that would resolve after 3 to 4 days using only conservative treatments so her doctors assumed that the pain was due to a reproductive hormone imbalance. 

 

This 28-year old woman had seen several doctors and none of them had diagnosed her correctly with appendicitis. Rather, one had diagnosed her with menstrual pain and another with  a urinary tract infection (UTI). Doctors had ruled out ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts, and torsion. She had only a mild tenderness in her right lower abdomen and her white blood cells counts were normal so the doctors never suspected a low-level appendicitis infection. She didn’t have a fever and there were no palpable masses in her abdomen that would have alerted doctors to the possibility of acute appendicitis.

 

Case Study #2

 

The second case study involved a 50 year old man who had right lower abdominal pain that had been present for a month. This man has lymph node swelling near the appendix which clued the doctors into the possibility that the appendix was also inflamed. Doctors believed that his appendix inflammation was due to partial or total obstruction of the appendix, although the appendix may have also become inflamed due to fibrosis.

 

Case Study #3

The patient in this case study was misdiagnosed with cystitis. Later the patient was admitted into the emergency room with appendicitis and underwent surgery whereupon surgeons discovered that the appendix had formed a fistula that dumped into the bladder, which had been causing the patient’s cystitis symptoms.

 

Complications of Chronic, Untreated Appendicitis

If chronic appendicitis goes untreated, any of the following diseases and disorders can develop over time:

 

  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Recurrent or chronic abdominal pain
  • Pain while urinating
  • Testicular pain in men
  • Menstrual pain in women
  • Fever (intermittent or recurrent)
  • Persistent or recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Interstitial Cystitis (The appendix can perforate and cause a fistula between appendix and bladder to develop such that patients mostly experience signs and symptoms of cystitis)
  • Appendicovesical fistula (a small tube that forms between the appendix and some other organ such as the bladder, uterus, or intestines, to relieve the inflammation and pressure that builds up due to infection)
  • Peritonitis
  • Peri-appendiceal abscess
  • Acute abdomen
  • Prostate Cancer
  • More…

 

If you think of the appendix as a little pouch that could, under certain conditions, release infectious pathogens into the pelvis and lower abdomen, it isn’t hard to imagine how a disease of the appendix could impact a variety of organ systems. Indeed, inflammation of the appendix could create pressure even without releasing pathogens and this pressure could cause irritation to the surrounding tissues in the pelvis and in the abdomen.

Misdiagnoses Associated with Chronic Appendicitis

 

Chronic appendicitis may be misdiagnosed as any of the following diseases or disorders

 

  • Infertility of Unknown Cause
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Ovarian Dermoid
  • Ovarian Cysts
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Gynecological Adnexitis
  • Cystitis
  • Acute Abdomen 
  • More…

 

Health Issues That Can Be Caused by Appendectomy

Generally speaking, if a patient has problems with their appendix, doctors recommend surgical removal. For chronic appendicitis, some doctors may take a more conservative approach and prescribe antibiotics, but if you wish to treat appendicitis at home, you need to be aware that acute appendicitis is a medical emergency. An appendix that bursts can kill you, so you should go to an emergency room if you have acute appendicitis. 

 

On the other hand, if you have chronic or recurrent appendicitis, or if you believe you may have been misdiagnosed with gynecological issues, a digestive issue, or a urinary tract issue that is actually a manifestation of an inflamed appendix, there are ways to treat this problem at home that work much better and that are much cheaper than what a doctor would prescribe at the clinic. We talk more about how to treat an inflamed and infected appendix at home at the end of this article. 

 

Nonetheless, if you have appendix inflammation or if you’re experiencing chronic abdominal pain and you have a choice about whether or not to get an appendectomy, consider the following health issues that can occur as a result of having your appendix removed:

1. Infertility in Women Caused by Appendectomy

Early diagnosis and treatment of suspected appendicitis, either acute appendicitis or chronic appendicitis is particularly important for women of reproductive age. One study showed that appendectomy (the surgical removal of the appendix) for a ruptured appendix, increased the risk of tubal infertility. In contrast, appendectomy for an appendix that has not ruptured does not increase the risk of infertility in women. The proximity of the appendix to the ovaries explains why infection and rupture of the appendix may contribute to infertility in women. 

 

2. Appendicitis Caused by Intrauterine Device (IUD)

There are a number of case studies documenting the fact that IUDs often migrate out of the uterus and they regularly end up in the appendix where they cause a great deal of pain and suffering for women. So there’s a relationship between appendicitis and IUDs that deserves mention here even though this article mostly addresses the presence of appendicitis as a causal factor in the development of reproductive organ problems and not the other way around. 

3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome Caused by Appendectomy

A Chinese study noted that the appendix plays a role in the gut flora as well as immune function. This study noted that those who had had an appendectomy were at higher risk for developing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). 

 

When is an appendectomy needed?

If you’re feverish, not able to eat, guarding your abdomen, and in a lot of pain, you may need an appendectomy. The goal of this article is to alert people to the fact that appendicitis can be a recurrent or chronic problem over the course of many years before it erupts into a health emergency. If you need to have an emergency appendectomy, you can still use the treatments recommended at the end of this article to prevent further infection, to prevent the development of cancer years into the future, and to prevent infertility as a result of an appendectomy.

 

If your doctor has recommended an appendectomy and you’re not sure and you’re sitting there wondering, “Do I need an appendectomy?” keep reading. If you have chronic appendicitis and low-level pain in the abdomen or pelvis, you can definitely start with castor oil packs and CDS/MMS treatments that we describe at the end of this article to treat the problem. In other words, if you aren’t ill with a fever and extreme pain, you might want to consider using CDS/MMS and castor oil packs for 24 to 48 hours and see if you see a difference in your pain. If your pain is even somewhat relieved by these treatments, continue on with them until the pain goes away completely. Keep using these treatments for at least 10 to 20 days after you stop feeling pelvic pain or abdominal pain. 

 

The use of Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) can also be extremely useful in removing adhesions, fibrotic tissues, and in making sure that the CDS/MMS and castor oil is able to reach deep inside the appendix to treat whatever infection might be causing the inflammation. The treatments that we describe will target the appendix, but will also work to treat the uterus, bladder, prostate, intestines, and all other organs that might be causing pain in the pelvis or abdomen. 

 

NOTE: Do not use DMSO if you are taking prescription medications because the DMSO can combine with the prescription meds to strengthen their effects in the body. Read more about DMSO here.

 

Also note that DMSO is a powerful treatment for interstitial cystitis

What Causes Lower Abdominal Pain / Pelvic Pain / Lower Back Pain?

Lower abdominal pain can be caused by a number of different health issues. If your intuition says that you need to tune into your lower abdominal pain, pain in the pelvis, or lower back pain, this article is meant to make you feel less fear about possible reasons why you have pain your abdomen and how you might be able to treat lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, or pelvic pain at home. 

 

At AlivenHealthy.com, we advocate for a No-Fear approach to cancer because most of the time, cancer can be treated using very simple, natural tools, especially when patients are honest with themselves about the possibility that they have cancer, knowing that it’s likely that they’ll be able to cure the disease without chemo or radiation treatments. If you have lower abdominal pain and you’re concerned that you might have cancer, I want to refer to our article about vitamin B17 as a cure for cancer as a good place to start since vitamin B17/amygdalin is a substance that was discovered as a cure for cancer by the very same doctor who invented chemotherapy at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital. 

 

If you simply can’t find it within yourself to place faith in something like vitamin B17, consider DMSO-Potentiation Therapy, which uses low-dose chemo with DMSO to target cancer cells in the body without harming healthy cells and without causing the terrifying side effects that cancer patients are known to experience. We find that when patients are aware of the gentle, yet effective cures for cancer that they tend to be more open to exploring and being more creative in their thinking about what may be causing their lower abdominal pain, pelvic pain, or lower back pain.

 

Appendicitis: Lower Abdominal Pain Causes to Consider

 

Acute appendicitis usually manifests as the following signs and symptoms in both male and female patients:

 

  • 48 hours of pain around the belly button
  • Pain that eventually moves to the lower right side of the abdomen
  • Inability or lack of interest in eating
  • Abdominal guarding (where the patient protects their abdomen reflexively from touching)
  • High white blood cell count
  • Most patients are between 10 and 30 years of age

 

Patients with appendicitis (inflamed or infected appendix) may be easily misdiagnosed with other diseases or disorders. Female patients who are sexually active are most at risk for misdiagnosis, especially if doctors don’t order CT imaging, which is the best way to diagnose appendicitis. If doctors miss this diagnosis and allow an inflamed or infected appendix to continue to wreak havoc on abdominal health, patients can develop an abscess in the appendix or they may suffer from infertility. Some patients develop fistulas that cause inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis. So it’s good to address appendicitis whether its acute or chronic to ensure that infection in this area of the body is dealt with properly before it causes bigger problems.

 

An appendectomy (removal of the appendix via surgery) is not considered a surgical emergency in patients with chronic appendicitis, but pain usually resolves after the appendectomy is performed nonetheless. There are other health problems that can result from appendectomy, however, so if you’re in a position to choose whether or not to have an appendectomy, be sure to consider those health issues carefully before making a decision.

How to Treat Chronic Appendicitis Pain and Infertility without Surgery

If you believe that you may be suffering from chronic appendicitis and you’d like to avoid surgery, there are some powerful at-home treatments that can help you clear up the infection that’s causing the low-level appendix inflammation. Be aware that these treatments will need to be administered for at least 30 days to ensure that they overcome the infection completely. Once the pain and symptoms of disease go away, continue with treatment for 10 to 20 additional days to ensure that all pathogens are cleared from the body.

 

Natural Cure for Lower Abdominal Pain: Chlorine Dioxide Solution (CDS) / Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)

Chlorine Dioxide Solution (CDS), which is also known as Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) is a Reactive Oxygen Species medicine. This medicinal agent has become famous because of its ability to cure infection that isn’t able to be treated with antibiotics that a doctor would prescribe. Chlorine Dioxide Solution works by releasing oxygen that essentially causes pathogens to explode upon contact. The oxygen species that are released by Chlorine Dioxide Solution are small, so they easily gain access to areas of the body that big molecules, like those found in antibiotics at the doctor’s office, simply can’t. And pathogens inside the body that are “allergic” to the reactive oxygen species that are released by CDS/MMS aren’t able to develop a resistance to these reactive agents. So CDS is effective against an extremely broad range of pathogens while prescription antibiotics are usually only effective against a small number of pathogens (because Big Pharma is always striving to produce medicines that fit the “one pill for one disease” model). 

 

If you believe you may be suffering from chronic appendicitis because you have a right lower abdominal pain that won’t go away, even with treatment from a doctor, start with the CDS / MMS Starting Procedure. Then, after completing the Starting Procedure, move on to Protocol 1000 if you take prescription medications of any kind. If you don’t take prescription medications, you should do Protocol 1000 PLUS, which includes Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). You will likely experience a Herxheimer Reaction after you begin treatment. A Herxheimer/Detox reaction is a sign that you’re targeting and healing the root cause of the disease. 

 

Be sure to read our Laypersons’ Guide to Chlorine Dioxide Solution (CDS) / Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) or take our AlivenHealthy Academy CDS/MMS courses to ensure that you understand how this medicine works and how to use it properly a natural cure lower abdominal pain.

Natural Remedies for Lower Abdominal Pain: Castor Oil Packs

Castor Oil Packs have been used successfully to treat acute appendicitis, though acute appendicitis is a medical emergency that should be handled in a hospital setting. So if you have acute appendicitis, be aware that this medical emergency could result in death if the appendix bursts or perforates. 

A castor oil pack involves the use of undyed cotton flannel and hexane free castor oil. You apply the castor oil to the cotton flannel and then put the cotton flannel against the skin. Cover the cotton flannel with a piece of plastic and then a towel. Then put a heating pad over the top of those 3 layers to warm the castor oil gently. Don’t use heat though if you have noticeable inflammation.

If you have inflammation, you can put 10 drops of hexane free castor oil with 10 drops of DMSO and apply this mixture to the abdomen instead. If you’re pregnant, you may want to avoid the use of a heating pad as well. DMSO is a good second choice as long as you aren’t taking prescription medications of any kind.

Chronic appendicitis is different than acute appendicitis. If you have chronic appendicitis and a chronic pain in the lower right abdomen, you may want to work with castor oil packs and apply them to the area where you feel pain. This is not just a pain relief strategy but also a treatment that can be used to cure infertility and appendix-related pain (which is often misdiagnosed as menstrual pain or urinary tract infection). 

 

Castor oil can be combined with Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and applied to the skin to treat fibrosis of the organs. As such, it can be used to dissolve fibrotic tissues that are causing chronic appendicitis. 

What is DMSO? 

If you aren’t already familiar with Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), you should be. DMSO is an FDA-approved, over-the-counter medication that has the broadest medicinal action of any FDA-approved drug currently on the market. What this means is that it would take a book-length document for me to expound on all of the things that DMSO can do for the body. 

 

DMSO is derived from trees. It’s cheap and it can be used to strengthen other medications, though you need to learn a lot about this medicine before you attempt to mix it with other medications. DMSO works particularly well with CDS/MMS to potentiate this medicine and ensure that its taken where it needs to go in the body. DMSO is a painkiller and it could be combined with castor oil as well to apply topically to the body. DMSO is a skin penetration enhancer that ensures that medications that are applied to the skin go into the bloodstream and the tissues. When you apply a medication topically with DMSO, it’s similar to administering that medicine into the bloodstream intravenously. So again, I have to emphasize that DMSO requires education and that you shouldn’t attempt to use this medicine creatively until you understand it fully. But combining CDS/MMS to DMSO is a powerful mixture that can be used by anyone who isn’t taking prescription medications. If you suffer from infertility or recurrent lower abdominal pain that resists treatment, then CDS/MMS Protocol 1000 or CDS/MMS Protocol 1000 PLUS (which makes use of DMSO) are a good place to start. 

Natural Treatment for Lower Abdominal Pain and Pelvic Pain: Enzyme Therapy

 

If you suffer from lower abdominal pain and your doctor has been unsuccessful at treating it, consider doing Enzyme Therapy along with the other treatments we recommend here. Enzyme Therapy will clean the intestines and help remove debris, biofilm, and pathogens in the digestive system, but these enzymes also target fibrotic tissues, endometrium, and adhesions throughout the body that often overgrow when the body is low on enzymes. 

 

Natural Cure for Lower Abdominal Pain and Pain in the Pelvis: Iodine Therapy

Just about anyone who is suffering from lower abdominal pain can benefit from iodine therapy. Iodine specifically feeds the reproductive organs and it is the go-to, cure for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and endometriosis. Iodine therapy can cure prostate inflammation and prostate cancer, so you get the idea in terms of iodine and the health of the reproductive system. But Lugol’s iodine also plays a role in weight loss, digestive health, and thyroid health. Many people with interstitial cystitis are cured of their disease by taking Lugol’s iodine 2% at 20 drops per day, but do read more about iodine therapy before you begin treatment with the essential trace mineral. Iodine cures many ills, including breast cancer and other reproductive organ cancers in both men and women and it plays a crucial role in immune system health. If suspect that you have chronic appendicitis or if you believe you may have endometriosis, PCOS, prostate inflammation, cancer of the reproductive organs, or any reproductive organ problem or urinary tract issue, or even digestive problems it’s extremely likely that you would benefit from iodine therapy.
