While telling this a friend of mine who does Iridology readings unexpectedly appeared and took a quick look at my eyes and said my small intestines were inflamed and had about a quarter inch of mucous coating on the interior walls from an over acid condition!

Late one night a couple weeks ago I had a sudden, acute pain that was constant in the mid-lower abdomen that covered an area about the size of a large hand: 8" X 3 1/2". After a couple hours of no relief while trying several different positions in attempts to relax through it I finally called the emergency room of my local hospital. They transferred me to a Tele-nurse and when I told her my symptoms she suggested I go to the emergency room and see a doctor. It was about 1 AM and I decided to drive myself to the hospital, about seven miles away. I was admitted into the hospital and before too long had a CT Scan of the entire abdominal region. Not having had any kind of incident like this before I had no idea what to expect. The emergency room doc said the CT Scan revealed it was my appendix. He suggested I have it removed. They wanted to put me on antibiotics but I refused, not convinced that I wanted the appendix removed even though I was warned that if the appendix burst it could kill me.
Later the surgeon showed up and he said the reading of the CT Scan was exaggerated and he ordered a sona-gram suspecting it was a gallstone. After the sona-gram he said it wasn't a gallstone. Then thought it was something viral and ordered blood work over the next couple days, but surgeons can't cut out viruses, so he called in a gastro-enterologist. This guy said the elevated bilirubin did not concern him and he ordered additional blood work for the spectrum of hepatitis. On the fourth and final day the surgeon returned saying he wasn't concerned about hepatitis because I didn't show any symptoms of jaundice and because I appeared well enough he discharged me. While telling this a friend of mine who does Iridology readings unexpectedly appeared and took a quick look at my eyes and said my small intestines were inflamed and had about a quarter inch of mucous coating on the interior walls from an over acid condition! What a contrast between these two approaches! One, the conventional medical model takes three and a half days with no diagnosis except to eliminate a suspected appendicitis or gall stone attack and the other very unconventional model reveals the inflamed intestinal condition in less than 20 minutes!
Well, now I would very much like to take the first level introductory training of an Iridology course (that will be taught by the same friend) starting next month and if possible proceed with the intermediate and finally the advanced practitioner course. I feel that my experience in the hospital not only woke me up to a health concern that I now have taken steps to alleviate but also has come in answer to my quest to discover the next work/service that I can offer others. ...

I'm surprised not only to find this post but especially to be able to enter it! Updates: I think it was about one year later after the above initial hospital visit when I returned and had the appendectomy. The highlight of that experience was recorded separately under the title "Lord of The Dance".
I did not pursue Iridology training. (Maybe another time?) Instead I moved out of the region in Northern Cal. that I was living in at the time and returned to a shared household in Southern Cal. where I had lived before. (Interesting that earlier this day I looked at an ad for a chef on the East Coast just out of curiosity.) It's now been eight years since I've returned and in the meanwhile I've been blogging at Son of Truth of Self:
