Acute appendicitis is an infection of the appendix and timely treatment with appropriate antibiotic may avoid urgent surgery, but otherwise it is considered a surgical disease--meaning you need surgery to correct it. I am not aware of any effective homeopathic remedy for this condition. If this is something you have now, please consult doc asap before complication kicks in. Good luck.

Homeopathy is not the best treatment for anything. Ever. Unless that thing only needed a placebo in the first place. Please see the excellent wikipedia entry for "homeopathy" for a thorough and balanced evaluation of the claims of this practice.
