"Mesenteric adenitis is an inflammation of the mesenteric lymph nodes in the abdomen. If it occurs in the right lower quadrant, it can be mistaken for acute appendicitis, often preceded by a sore throat. Can occur in death."

I give him intestamine, probiotics, and other naturopathic treatments by medi-herb..Have him on gluten and dairy free diet. Doctors say it is viral and will go away by itself. It's been one month and we are still waiting. Would anybody please have any suggestions. Read this site all the time.. Thank you"Replies

Hi, I wish your son will be OK soon.
The mesenteric adenitis is an inflamation of the lymph nodes in the digestive system. They seem to go away when the infection causing the inflamation is gone. Usually they are caused by mycobacteria and viruses and even fungus. The key to heal this disease is to heal the infection. You can take L-lysine 1000 mg twice a day and some borax ( 1/4 tsp diluted in 1 litre of water), Zinc carnosine will help greatly, 1000 mg Vit C, 500UI Vit D3, some magnesium chloride, Selenium.
I don't recommand to him aspirin because it can cause him gastric bleeding. You can use Meloxicam, it seems to work better for digestive problems.
Potassium Iodide will enhance incredibly his immune system by stimulating the macrophages.
He can also take some camomille tea to sooth his digestie system.
I hope this helps."

Read about health benefits of mastic gum. Take in the a.m. and wait 1 hour to eat. I have also taken wormwood and it eases of pressure in the lower right quadrant. Digestive enzymes on an empty stomach (before bed) are also helpful."

Finally having a name for it from the ER I went to my chiropractor. After just one visit I have tremendous relief. He did some manipulations but also gave me this exercise to help clear the enflamed lymph node. Lay flat on your back. Hold on to something sturdy with your hands and bring your knees up to your forehead. (Yeah I know, just do your best) Hold it for 5 seconds. Do three reps at a time. You cannot overdo this excercise. He called it the lymphatic pump. All exercise will help somewhat to circulate the lymphatic system but this one in particular helps to "squeeze" the infection out. Avoid medicines but not vitamins and probiotics. It is important to boost the immune system.
In addition, I just happened to have bought an electrical nerve stimulator. They sell them at a kiosque at the mall but I got mine at the chiropractor's. I now use it on both my belly and on the center of my back where the corresponding nerves are located. This also helps a lot.
There are medical issues that require regular doctors but there are plenty of medical issues which can be resolved with chiropractic care, even colds! If you've never been to a chiropractor before I highly recommend it. They solve medical problems that medical doctors only mask with medicines. My relief was immediate and I am sleeping much better. And after 3 days I am still feeling much better. My Chiropractor thinks I should be healed within 2 to 3 weeks but I think the healing is actually going faster because I am pushing the exercises.
Good luck and feel better!"
