In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the real function of the Appendix. The Appendix is a 2 to 4 inch tube that extends in the large intestine and has its critical function. The purpose of the appendix is to produce antibodies and white blood cells, helps with the infection and the main purpose is, it acts as a reserve of good bacteria (stored) to repopulate the colon. He also talks about the connection between appendix removal scar tissue and right knee pain.

    You can take serrapeptase to help get rid of that scar tissue.

    I believe there is more to it and Dr. Aajonus Vonderplanitz was a genius when it came to this stuff.

    Please. Can you talk someday about intramyocellular lipids and its effects on the insulin receptors of the cell? Thank you

    I thought Appendicitis was linked with a low fiber diet?

    I had right lower abdominal pain for weeks, eventually rushed into hospital (UK, 1979, aged 22). GP had thought appendicitis, 10 doctors later examined me (vaginal too) for their opinion. Just before midnight I was asked to give consent to operate, deteriorating rapidly, I asked no questions when told, we are going for your appendix, although I had the energy to suggest my gut feeling was it was something to do with my reproductive system. Almost laughing, one doctor asked what my medical background was. I simply said, “I just feel I am right.” After surgery, I remember being lifted off a trolley, onto bed and thinking it hurt my right lower stomach. Next morning, I felt worse than the previous day. I was a mess, 2 days later, hallucinating, wondering why other appendectomy patients were on their way home, while I was going further downhill. I was told the next morning by the surgeon, ‘Once we had your appendix out, we knew that wasn’t the cause of pain or your temperature, so cut you a bit more and discovered salpingitis (blocked and inflamed Fallopian tubes), we blew them clear in theatre. If you want children you may struggle to conceive as this was bilateral. You will make a full recovery as from a surgical position, you have only had an appendectomy.” Five days post-op I was told I had abscesses in the wound, no antibiotics given, but stitches removed, abscesses punctured and gauze pushed inside, changed twice daily for weeks. After 10 days in hospital, when discharged, my mum couldn’t cope, neither could I. My gp later did a home visit, he ordered a community nurse twice daily to change the dressings but gave no medication despite not understanding my discharge without a letter. After 3 months my wound healed, I was exhausted and felt that half of me had been removed. I instinctively knew this was huge and not a little useless piece of intestine that evolution had rendered useless. I had so many infections with elevated inflammatory markers in the past 8 yrs, no-one ever mentioned my disadvantaged immune system although about 5 years ago I began learning what the appendix really is. It’s laughable people were saying, if you can’t digest tomato seeds, they collect in the appendix, that’s all it does. I have elevated ANA but no diagnosable disease, sometimes I have felt life was nearly over, but I feel lucky to understand the importance of the microbiome and diet. I believe I owe my best of health, to the integrity of open minded doctors like Dr Berg. I wholeheartedly thank Dr Berg for confirming the info in this video. I’d love to know the effect on lifespan of appendectomy. Btw, no right knee pain, but that scar tissue and adhesions caused pain akin to thinking the Aliens movie was no longer fictional, when I eventually conceived my one and only child (without trying may I add). An early US scan confirmed it was not an ectopic pregnancy. Those feelings that half of me had been taken away during surgery, now makes so much sense. All my own searching led to nothing to help in those early years to follow. There is so much to be said about THAT GUT FEELING. Dr Berg, Thank you! 😇🌞

    The Appendix was once the Cecum. It is in fact an organ that atrophied when humans were forced to become meat eaters because of cataclysmic climate change. It was rat animals or die. After adopting a primarily carnivorous diet Humans gave up their Cecum for a larger brain. I choose an animal fat diet diet. Vegans and vegetarian are welcome to give up their larger brain if the choose to do so.

    We have been taught a lot of stupid things by "medicine" over the years. I believe that there are thousands of dead because of
    their quackery. Tonsils, appendix, fat, salt etc.

    DR. Berg has a progressive, scientific and at times supra-establishment approach which is refreshing!

    Science worshipers and believers in the theory of evolution will tell you it’s a “vestigial organ” because we can live without it🙄. Well to that I say chop of your arms and legs and we’ll call those vestigial too.

    Dear Dr. Eric Berg,
    You mentioned that one of the functions of the appendix is to repopulate the colon especially after taken antibiotics. When I was a child I took penicillin for about 6 years on a daily basis and I had my appendix removed over 30 years ago . What can I do to replenish the good bacteria… I have been doing colonics to clean the colon from the rubbish stored in there but not sure how I can effectively replace the good bacteria apart from eating lots of vegetable as I am a vegan. Thank you for your video and for spreading the real knowledge to the public. Blessings, Cristal

    I had my appendix removed about 14-15 years ago. Since then I have become very lethargic, and have been diagnosed with Hypergonadotropic hypergonadism, fibromyalgia. I have battled to lose weight but since my wife found Dr Berg, I can see light at the end of a dark tunnel. I take apple cider vinegar, have cut out sugars and take L Glutamine. The weight is slowly starting to come off. I do also have right knee joint pain, especially when walking upstairs. I will be trying this. Thank you

    Of course it has a function! There are no vestigial organs. God didn’t make any mistakes in our design 🙏

    30 years after my mom's appendectomy, she ended up with scar tissue that had grown and adhered to her intestines, which created a section where it became kinked and could not slip back out. It literally cut off the movement of anything being able to pass through. She was in extreme pain that dropped her to the floor, couldn't get up and had to have surgery quite quickly. Probably just as bad as having had the appendicitis in the first place. Love your information. Thank you.

    I had my appendix removed due to appendicitis about 5 years ago. 1 year prior to that I got diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac disease and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), roughly at the same time, apparently all these diseases are connected somehow. So my whole digestive system and liver is basically a mess. Are there any dietary tips for these disorders that might help? The celiac disease is no problem, as I'm on a gluten free diet.

    When I was 16 i worked in surgical labs for HARVARD Medical school , i asked a doctor and he said ,Do not fall for the Cave man lie of digesting Raw meat , It is the opposite , Your poor sugar and bad food diet is the problem , but Americans have problems with Abuse of EVERYTHING , look at those things first , Some of us are just more intelligent when in High school , i doubt your high school kid was putting cows and dogs on Surgery tables at 16 and watching surgery ,can you imagine a video junky asking these Questions … NOT !!! Maybe if you did we might have Tech jobs in AMERICA …
