Pancreatitis Remedies

Last Modified on Feb 05, 2014

Pancreatitis treatments vary from mere dietary changes to more specific supplemental additions. At any rate, natural options work to treat pancreatitis safely and effectively. Dietary changes and supplements can be used to naturally treat pancreatitis and its symptoms.

What is Pancreatitis?

The pancreas is a large gland situated behind the stomach and near the first section of the small intestine. The pancreas functions in two primary ways: secreting digestive enzymes and releasing needed hormones to process food. When this organ becomes inflamed, the result is termed pancreatitis.

Common symptoms include pain in the upper abdomen and back, swelling in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, fever, rapid pulse, diarrhea and oily stools. A variety of factors contribute to pancreatitis including gallstones, chronic heavy alcohol use, trauma, medication, infection, tumors and genetic abnormalities of the pancreas.

Holistic Remedies for Disease of the Pancreas

Several treatment options are available for managing pancreatitis. Some of the most common remedies include dietary changes as well as supplements including aloe vera and papaya juice. When paired with a sensible diet, exercise and an otherwise balanced lifestyle, these treatments offer effective healing.

Dietary Changes

Treating pancreatitis via dietary changes involves identifying what the body can and cannot handle. Utilizing a food diary and journaling foods as well as the body’s reaction is the best way to identify triggers. Common trigger foods include fruit, sugar and other high starch foods.

Aloe

Aloe is an anti-inflammatory compound that is traditionally applied to cuts and wounds. However, as pancreatitis often involves inflammation of the pancreas, aloe also serves as an effective pancreatitis treatment. The compound also contains a number of nutrients that offer healing.

Papaya Juice

Papaya juice is another nutrient-rich formula often used to treat pancreatitis. With its unique composition and complex carbohydrate structure, papaya juice relieves inflammation and delivers nutrients to the body. Paired with flax seed, the juice is an even more potent treatment.

Pancreatitis is often a painful condition. However, treatment when started at the onset of the condition offers extensive relief with minimal deviation from the normal diet.

Acute Pancreatitis Triggers

06/19/2010: Patricia from Marietta, Georgia Usa: "My son, age 31 has had acute pancreatitis attacks for the last 2.5 years. Has had to go to the hospital numerous times. Doctors don't know what causes it...any suggestions. Prior to this time he has always been very healthy. He went on the Atkins Diet about 7 years ago..could this be a root cause. He has had tests and they can't diagnose any causes."

06/19/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Atkins diet is based on acid forming foods and the pancreas is a large reservoir of alkaline substance. The pancreas needs alkaline substances to protect itself and thus the Atkins diet is likely to be one of the causes of acute pancreatitis. The remedy, I believe, is to rebuild the lost bicarbonates by taking baking soda, at 1/2 teaspoon two or three times a day [Ed note: mixed with 8 oz of water] after meals about 30 minutes. It takes about two weeks to notice improvement as the body tries to get the bicarbonate to its normal level. It should be noted that weight loss is due more to dietary intake of proteins rather then Atkin's diet per se. However proteins breakdown into amino acids, and the meat products are high in phosphate and they are cancer causing. If the body has insufficient ability to neutralize the acid causing meats, the pancreas get damage. This brings to possible autoimmunity disorder, where one methods I used to reduce them is taking some borax (boron) supplementation, such as 1/4 teaspoon in a liter of drinking water for one week. A daily dose of 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in a cup of water will help increase the salinity as a way of raising the body's immune system. Thereafter, once two weeks has passed, the baking soda should still be continued, to at least 2 times a day to keep the pancreas fully bathed.

If weight loss is desired, there is a much simpler protocol, just avoid the sugars, fats and carbohydrates. When Dr. Atkins died, he did have a high cholesterol level. So obviously fatty liver can be from high fat meats, and fatty liver can occur. Hence granulated lecithin 1 teaspoon twice a day is taken also to restore liver to it's normal state, by removing the fats using a fat emulsifiying lecithin. In any case if you want to market any latest weight loss fad, it has to be complicated enough that people will buy book, too simple is simply unmarketable. Weight gain is generally seen as too much sugar in the system is converted to glycogen and fats, and fats are simply that, the body has great difficulty converting fats to energy, while proteins has little or no energy content and hence doesn't make you fat in general. However, as in all sugar, carbohydrate and protein they make your body acid, and the first organ to go is the pancreas since that's the major organ that has the most bicarbonates and hence are sensitive to acid forming food.

In addition, there are key amino acid more directly lated to weight loss, these include, l carnitine and often taken together with alpha lipoic acid, but also glutamine and glycine, and now and then arginine and lysine. These are the common supplements I used for weight loss. Certain amino acid are inhibitory and act as appetite suppressant such as taurine and glycine. Some minerals are appetite suppressants such as boron that I see most often. I don't generally use excitotoxins such as phenylalanine as it tends to damage the nervous system and weight back come back with a vengence. That's cause these excitotoxins damages the nervous system by overexciting them. The same can be said for monosodium glutamate, in low amounts they increase appetite in high amounts they have opposite effect, but that damages the hypothalamus and causes lifelong obesity. This is why scientist inject MSG into weanling rats so they can become obese. The same effect is also true whenever vaccinations are given to babies and they sometimes do add monosodium glutamate into these vaccinations.

One particular mineral besides boron that acts as mineral appetite suppressant is the zinc. Preferably I used zinc acetate, other forms such as zinc sulfate tend to induce vomiting. I believe it's the sulfate, and can be found also in epsom salt such as magnesium sulfate. Some may not be effected, but quite many Thais here seems to initiate vomiting after taking them in two or three hours will initiate vomiting. Generally zinc acetate is taken for only 50 mg per day for only one week, then I just stop them so that there's no exccessive zinc buildup and may take it again whenever the need arise a month or two."

EC: Incidentally, Ted (aka Parhatsathid Napatalung) was just quoted in Dr. Sircus' newsletter yesterday on this very subject! Here's the link to the article entitled, "The Pancreas, Bicarbonate and Diabetes" http://blog.imva.info/?p=649#arrive. Ted is quoted in the 2nd paragraph.

06/20/2010: Janet from Poynette, Wisconsin, Usa replies: "Thank you, Ted, for your comments on acid forming foods. I suffered several attacks of acute pancreatitis over a period of about 6 months before I discovered what was causing it. I would get symptoms soon after eating 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed (which I ground myself). My daughter used the same product with no problems so I don't think it was contaminated. I have read that raw seeds and grains (that have not been cooked or sprouted) contain a growth inhibitor that require pancreatic enzymes to break down and digest so I came to the conclusion that I may be depleted of some of these enzymes. I am 61 years old this happened about 5 years ago, I have never had these symptoms before or since (I now avoid raw flaxseed meal) and I have never had a problem with indigestion (always considered myself to have a 'cast iron stomach'). I have eaten other raw nuts and seeds and have had no reaction. What do you think?

Thank you,
Janet"

06/20/2010: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Should the bicarbonate be diluted in water?"

EC: Yes, always! We'll insert that into Ted's post.. thanks for catching the omission.

06/09/2011: Shawn from Youngstown, Ohio replies: "around 85% of acute pancreatitis cases are caused by alcohol... Whether long term abuse or a night of binge drinking. smoking can also aggrivate the pancreas.

i have had chronic pancreatitis since 2005. I have also been hospitalized around 40 times for acute pancreatitis. I did not drink but did smoke. it took six years of testing and hospitalizations before doctors in pittsburgh at UPMC determined what the root cause of my attacks were. I have pancreas divism. basically, the duct that pancreatic enzymes flow through to reach the duodenum does not work. my enzymes flow through an auxillary duct which is very narrow compared to the main duct. this duct becomes blocked and the enzymes flow back into the pancreas and actually start digesting the pancreas. pancreas divism is not all that uncommon and usually won't cause acute pancreatitis by itself. pittsburgh did dna gene testing and determined that I have a mutated spink1 gene. this gene along with the divism keeps causing me to have acute pancreatitis over and over. there is no cure but I periodically have stents placed into my pancreatic duct to ensure enzyme flow.

pancreatitis has become more common over the past 15-20 years, especially in men. for people who don't drink alcohol, diet is probably the main cause. a low fat diet helps to keep the pancreas from working too hard. also, foods that are more difficult to digest like red meats should be minimized. there's no need to go full on vegetarian or vegan, but just limiting the amount of all meats in one's diet will be beneficial.

also, there are supplements with pancreatic enzymes that are helpful. anything with amylase, lipase, and protease can be taken to help digest food and keep the pancreas from having to work too much.

diet and supplements are good starts and can really help minimize pancreatic episodes. however, pancreatitis is very serious and there is no substitute for medical care by a specialist... And not a GI doctor, a pancreas specialist. I actually know more about acute and chronic pancreatitis than my family doctor."

02/10/2012: Adam from South Lake Tahoe, Ca replies: "Thank you so much for posting this I've been having pancreatitis attacks in the last years and since ive found out I've quit drinking alcohol and it's still is happening. I've gone to the doctor and they want to send me to a G.I specialist at UC Davis. I've been to the hospital 3 times in the past 5 months and I've changed my diet no fatty foods minimum meats, no red meats..... I'm trying the aloe vera juice, papaya juice, I'm praying that this works. Thank you so much you've made my day!"

Thank you all for the post! Please note that you should get "inner filet" aloe vera. I did the aloe vera juice last week, but am using the gel this week. The gel seems to be working better, but that's perhaps because I'm already a week into the regime. Although the gel makes the papaya juice thick and is a little unappealing. I just shoot it very quickly about 1/3-1/2 cup each, twice a day. The lady at the market where I get the Aloe Vera explained that the other (not "INNER FILET") makes your stomach cramp.

I had an Ercp which triggered a severe pancretitis (3monts in hospital_) and since then I have pain everytime I eat and actually the pain lingers all day and night.

I am anxious to start the papaya but I can see several options are offered and not the exact one. It is difficult to find organic papaya 100% juice, for ex. Lakewood has it mix with apple.

Did you juice it yourself ? Can you use the powder and make the juice ? Where did you get the Aloe Vera , the only one I found was with sugar at Wholefood.

Thank you so much for caring about helping others. We who are in pain really appreciate it. RebeccaH"

12/21/2012: Lillie from Brooklyn, New York, Usa replies: "To Rebeccah from New York, New York and all the people: you should buy both papaya and aloe vera leaf fresh from grocery store, only when raw and unprocessed can they cure your pancreas, b/c only then they contain enzymes that your pancreas is lacking. Green unripe papaya contains more enzymes; on the other hand, ripe orange papaya has a lot of vitamin A which is also very healing, so use both, or choose medium ripe. Aloe vera leaf cut at base and place standing in a jar for an hour or so, to let all the juice leak out. You can use the juice to make a cosmetic mask for your face or your hair. Skin the leaf and use the inner gel. Place some papaya, some aloe vera gel and some water in a blender and make a smoothie. It doesn't matter the exact amount, make at least a cup 3 times a day, and take it separately from other food, at least 1 hour away. It's also very beneficial to relax and meditate, or just daydream after you have this drink. Health and happiness to all. Love and peace."

08/04/2013: Lisa from Texas replies: "Papaya nectar and aloe Vera juice.. Any brand.. Does Not have to organic. She just used them together.

[YEA]  07/26/2008: Amy from Sachse, TX: "I'm not sure about cellulite, but I'm sure if anything would work ACV would. I had horrible acne and started applying it straight topically and taking two table spoons internally daily. Also started applying it to my arm pits nightly. I had a horrible problem with deodorant not working after my first pancreatic attack. I now only have to apply deodorant once in the morning. No reapplying 3 or 4 times during the day. I noticed after about a week that I was using the restroom more regularly. Because I have Pancreatitis, sometimes my food does not digest properly. The ACV has also helped with this. I have never believed in anything the way I believe in Apple Cider Vinegar. It is inexpensive and good for you. So even if it doesn't work for Cellulite it will make you feel better over all. I have heard of people using ACV as a fat flush to lose weight. Maybe that is why it has helped with some peoples cellulite. Good Luck!!!"

I believe ACV can benefit most people on "Proton pump inhibitors" and the like.

[YEA]  06/19/2011: Linda from Alpharetta, Ga: "I was very sick with pancreatitis from 1989-1992. I got sick with pancreatitis because I lived vegetarian and I ate too much fruit. Most fruit have a lot of sugar and now I limit it to usually 1 to a max of 2 cups per day. I have to be extremely careful with black berries and sweet fruits like oranges, peaches etc. And also with bread. I used to love French baguette or soft Pretzels.

I stay away from sugar, bread and everything that contains starches as well as alcohol and deserts, cakes etc.

Once a day I have a smoothie with a few strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, goat milk and stevia to satisfy my "sweet tooth". Otherwise I eat a lot of salads with lettuce and I add cabbage /bell peppers/carrots/tomatoes etc whatever is in my yard / fridge. My energy and concentration is best with a mixed salad and meat, like some chicken or fish, beef or lamb. In the winter time I cook often vegetable soups or miso soup to stay warm and I steam a lot of veggies. I eat goat or sheep cheese as desert to keep me longer satisfied. I drink lots of water and unsweet ice tea or hot tea. Once in a while I have a glass of dry wine. Unsweet black or green tea and lettuce is very good for the pancreas because of its "bitter" taste.

I also take every day twice baking soda mixed in water, which prevents beforehand any trouble with the pancreas. My salad dressing consists of organic apple cider vinegar, Herba mare (= salt herbmix available at health food stores or online) and flax seed oil (refrigerated).

Since I am on this "diet", I never had any trouble with the pancreas again, and my "genetically extremely high cholesterol level" has been normal ever since. This diet freed me also from weight problems and cravings."

Increasing Oxygen and Cellular Nutrition

10/20/2011: Duane from Toronto, Ontario Canada: "My 79 year old father was diagnosed with inoperable stage 4 pancreatic cancer 10 months ago. They did a stomach bypass so that food could pass the large tumour and allow him to eat, and removed his gall bladder as it was visibly affected as well. They did not touch the pancreas as it was too involved at that point. He has not undergone any chemo or radiation.

He could not eat solid food for over 6 weeks and subsequently lost weight rapidly early on. He was one of the lucky ones that makes it home after the surgery and over a month without eating surviving off of IV. I had spent 2 months from diagnosis until post surgery release researching what to do. The standard medical process said they had nothing to offer him and basically sent him home to die, so we had no other options anyways.

I believe with all my body that at the root of all cancer, cancer cures and modern diseases are four main things: quantity of cellular oxygen, quality of cellular nutrition, type and amount of toxicity and level of acidity.

These things can be easily tackled in multiple ways. His entire protocol is centred around extreme increases in oxygen and nutrition and extreme decreases in toxins and acidity.

The Cancer Centres and doctors have all said "He should have been dead months ago and does not even appear on their results grid" His weight and energy is stable, he is getting stronger, eating normally, pain free, exercises and walks daily, sleeps well, has great color and is living an entirely normal life. He is entirely symptom free now.

I believe we owe his outcome thus far to his extremely positive attitude, prayers and an extensive natural protocol to address the four areas above."

There have been a number of people that have reported success. Read what they say and the amounts that they used.

Or maybe you would like to try the apple cider vinegar, if so enter in the search box "apple cider vinegar" to find out more and how much you might take. You could also try the fresh beets and apple juice mix for the pancreatitis.

Which ever you choose start out slow meaning don't start with a full dose the first day. Then see how your husband feels or reacts and then take more accordingly. If one doesn't work then try another.

Looking at the list of choices there are a number of people who tried the aloe and papaya juice mix and were success so maybe you would want to start with that? Good luck."

On my second attack doctors spotted a shadow in my gal bladder, and after careful examination it was removed. Sadly after all these years my attacks are still occuring. The severity differs every time, and it has hampered my education and my work life ever since. I am not an alcoholic or a smoker. Doctors can't find a cause, and sometimes during an attack nothing is detected in the ultrasound report. Could anyone help me out on my diet or on any sort of cure for this disease."

Cut out as much beef as possible. I mean 90% make it a treat, here's some meats that don't bother me a bit- chicken and gyro meat, some turkey, you must pay attention to your body it's gonna be hard but you must. This is how you will know what triggers for you, no hot sauces, low sodium. You have to start making your favorites a treat. Sweets don't seem to bother me- might not with you too. I gathered input from people who has this crap, keep fruits and peanuts in ya diet, docs didn't tell me none of what I'm telling ya, when I have an attack, I get in a tub of water then get it hot as I can stand it. I trade one for the other- seems crazy but works, you'll be wowed what the body get use to, I've been dealing with this since I was 19, now I'm 33, I tried all through trial and error. So sick of doctor through all the yrs, ask ya doc for this med called ZENPEP 10,000 units use these after meals- trust me they help!!! GOOD LUCK and BEST WISHES. P.S. just pay attention to how you react to the foods ya eat!!"

I have used it according to instructions and it's so true! One woman in the hospital was told that they could not bring her blood sugar down and nothing was working, my daughter-in-law took her some juiced stringbeans and bam! The doctors said, "I don't know what happen but you can go home in the morning". No, she didn't tell them about the juice *_*"

[YEA]  01/12/2013: Sri from Singapore: "SOLUTION FOR PANCREATITIS-FINALLY!!!

Guys I want to share a panacea solution. Please try sungazing in the morning within first hour of sunrise. It helped me get rid of pain in my stomach due to pancreatitis. Also reduces hunger. In addition to sungazing. Sun gives us vitamin D and other nutrients and also controls the pineal gland which is linked to pancreas and digestive system. In addition, I also suggest drinking 1.5 L water in morning and also agnihotra (google it). These 3 things helped me to be normal life again. Now I am pain free.

04/30/2013: Sri from Singapore replies: "Ok.... I figured this out after my first attack.

1. LOW FAT VEGAN MEAL
2. EAT SMALL AMOUNTS multiple times- large amounts put load on pancreas
3. Take grapefruit seed extract, Good Digestive enzymes, Turmeric
4. Don't take tea or coffee, especially after meals
5. I took tea with milk after heavy lunch and it caused an attack
6. Take activated charcoal capsules if you eat fats
7. Pancreatitis is progressive destruction of pancreas caused by acute pancreatitis attacks. So it important to prevent attacks at all costs.
8. TAKE PAPAYA AND ALOE VERA AS SUGGESTED BY OTHERS

You can live a long life if you follow this strictly."

05/15/2013: Sri from Singapore replies: "Please try the fruit diet. You have fruits every meal. No cooked food. Occasional piece of cooked food is ok. Have papaya every meal since it has digestive enzymes. This will reduce inflammation and drink lots of water for detox."
[YEA]  05/29/2013: Sri from Singapore replies: "Indian ayurveda CAN cure chronic pancreatitis :) Many have successfully done this in India. Fllow a pitta paciying diet. Drink 1.5 L cool water twice everyday. Cool shower. Keep everything cool. Drink coconut water. You will see improvment in 3 days. Diet is fruit pulp, vegetable pulp for 2 months. Avoid sour fruits. Many cases can heal pancreatitis this way. Drink 500 ml water around 4 hours after sleeping at night. I am seeing a HUGE difference. God bless you. Please send your blessings to me if this works :)"
06/16/2013: Sri from Singapore replies: "1.5 liters water may be a BIT TOO MUCH for some people. So please try 500 ml at a time. It might help with pain by cooling down the digestive system and diluting the acid. Acid in deodenum causes the pancreas to release bicarbonate. Please try adding bicarbonate to your diet."
08/09/2013: Sri from Singapore, replies: "PLEASE DO NOT FOLLLOW MY RECCOMENDATIONS ABOVE.

One doctor misdiagnosed me to be having pancreatitis. I was devastated and anxious. I tried various medicines like grapeseed extract, turmeric etc. Later after a year of more painful tests they said I am having some other problem. I am really sorry for the inconvenience my remedies might have caused you. Ayurvedic doctors can help heal pancreatitis. Please forgive me for the trouble."
