The Medicinal Herb Info site was created to help educate visitors about the often forgotten wisdom of the old ways of treating illnesses. Many of today's drugs and medicines were originally derived from natural ingredients, combinations of plants and other items found in nature.

We are not suggesting that you ignore the help of trained medical professionals, simply that you have additional options available for treating illnesses. Often the most effective treatment involves a responsible blend of both modern and traditional treatments.

We wish you peace and health!

Peritonitis

Definition

Inflammation of the peritoneum, which is a serous sac that lines the abdominal cavity and most of the viscera contained therein.
Back to Top


Causes

Inflamed viceral organ rupture, such as the appendix, will spread the inflammation throughout the abdominal cavity. This sets off an acute inflammation of the peritoneum.

Symptoms

Peritonitis is a very painful condition accompanied by vomiting and a racing pulse rate. The abdomen becomes swollen and tight like a board. The patient’s life is in danger at this point and must be hospitalized immediately. Provided the patient is in good health otherwise, a skillful surgeon will have a good chance to pull the patient through.
