Ascites is the chronic accumulation of excess fluid in the abdomen. It is the most common complication among patients with advanced liver disease and certain cancers.  Patients suffering with ascites experience a significant build-up of fluid inside the abdominal cavity, causing the belly to become tense and swollen.

The objective for doctors and patients is easy to understand, but not so easy to achieve: to relieve the patient from this repeated build-up of fluid in the abdomen, safely, naturally and on a continual basis.
