    Dear Parijatak
    Thanks for giving a nice information which is related to appendicitis. Appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always requires prompt surgery to remove the appendix. Left untreated, an inflamed appendix will eventually burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. But with the help of Ayurveda medical treatment appendicitis disease can be solved.
