Information on Pericarditis

DescriptionPericarditis is an inflammation of the protective sac (pericardium) that surrounds the heart. It can be either acute or chronic. This can be a serious condition, and it is wise to consult a physician or other qualified health care practitioner for a treatment program.

For a chronic condition, weakened adrenals or immunity might be strong contributing factors. For this, tonics for those systems are recommended.

An acute case should be managed by a physician or other experienced practitioner.
Treatment PlanImmune stimulants can provide support, especially the heat clearing ones. The heart sedative and tonic bugleweed is also used.
