The peritoneum is the tissue that covers the abdomen organs in the body. When someone gets peritonitis it is because the peritoneum has become inflamed or ruptured. The two types of peritonitis are: spontaneous bacterial peritonitis or SBP- this is caused by liver or kidney failure that causes inflammation or infection in the fluid in the peritoneal cavity. The second type of peritonitis is called secondary peritonitis(wow!)- this is caused by an infection of the digestive system. Peritonitis is considered a life threatening situation. When peritonitis or the inflammation causes fluid to enter the bloodstream, damage to other bodily organs can occur. When the body becomes overloaded with bacteria sepsis can be the result. Another condition called hepatic encephalopathy can occur when the liver is no longer able to remove toxic substances from the body and there is a loss of brain function because of it. There needs to be a way to make our bodies pals with itself so that in the event of a situation where harmful or toxic fluids come into contact with other body parts, the body will be able to handle it without the problem becoming fatal. Some conditions that can cause peritonitis are: cirrhosis of the liver, crohn's disease, a stomach ulcer, pancreatitis, perforated colon, diverticulitis, kidney failure, gallbladder problems and a ruptured appendix. In those instances one would need to consult a physician regarding any ailment or the underlying problem causing the peritonitis. But, what if you are having severe problems and symptoms and need to call 911 and get to the hospital but you cannot take the pain any longer and you now fear that your life is in jeopardy due to the harmful fluid substances that are being released throughout your body due to ay of these conditions? I did say that we had to find ways to make the body adapt to it's own toxins or something to that effect. By taking adequate amounts of ginger, turmeric, baking soda or even activated charcoal can assist with removing the inflammation or infection and also by absorbing harmful toxins and bacteria in the body. Our bodies need a way to prevent their own toxins and buildup of bacterial from dangerous circumstances. You should consult your herbalist and in emergencies that are considered life threatening and medical treatment is necessary, perhaps by using such supplements will prevent drastic complications. Peritonitis reminds me of the current design of a medical office- they are not practical, at least many of them and certainly need intervention of sorts!
