Pericarditis 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.
