Subject:         My appendix ruptured
Date: July 25, 2014 at 11:13 pm PST

I have been doing 80/10/10 raw vegan 100% for the past 8 months, after
embarking on a slow 5-year transition into the diet (former SAD eater). I am a
healthy, slender, fit and active young adult female (mid-20's), with no past
medical history, and I had my first hospital and surgical experience this month
when my appendix ruptured (prior to the CT scan that made the official

I had gone to the emergency room after two days of constant, inhibiting stomach
pain, as well as total loss of appetite and thirst, and chose to take the standard
route recommended by modern medicine: antibiotics and surgical removal of my
appendix. Didn't have the appropriate resources, time, or knowledge to try an
alternative treatment, and according to modern medicine a rupture can be very
serious. (Anyone disagree?)

It was definitely an interesting experience, especially staying in the hospital for a
few days. I was very surprised my condition happened, and was curious to know
if there is anyone here who has suffered from a ruptured appendix, or
appendicitis, after having fully made the transition to 80/10/10, and what did
you do?

Also, does getting appendicitis or a ruptured appendix have any connection with
health? I've heard that it can simply be due to mechanical blockage, like fecal
material or vegetable seeds getting stuck. Do you think that this always
happened to humans since the beginning of time? Is it really normal?

Can stress cause it? My "weakest links" at the time of my rupture were: high
stress, significant sleep deprivation, and inadequate sunlight and sun exposure.

Would love to hear other people's thoughts and experiences, including from Dr.
Graham if possible! :-)

PS: One more fact worth nothing --- I did not eat at all for a total of 4 days
(from the time my stomach pain occurred, until after my hospital discharge), and
when I was discharged from the hospital by blood sugar was 48! I felt so weak
and dizzy. It is normal for blood sugar to drop that low during a fast? I have no
history of blood sugar problems, and have always had perfect results on various
blood sugar tests (including 12+ hour fast).
