I was hospitalized for pancreatitis about a month ago. The last three days, the feeling of oncoming pancreatitis started coming back, as well as accompanying anxiety thinking I was going to have to be hospitalized again., I did everything suggested on this pancreatitis forum - Ted's remedies, no alcohol, papaya and aloe vera - nothing worked! Last night, I took 4 grams of pharmaceutical inositol powder, 3 grams and woke up calm - no anxiety or depression and had slept deeply. Also, no symptoms of pancreatitis when I woke up. I started researching inositol and found that not only is it used for anxiety and depression, it is used for insulin resistance and diabetes, and the pancreas secrets insulin, so taking the inositol stopped my low blood sugar attacks on the spot! Woke up and took 3 more grams. Inositol is huge for liver detoxification as well as helping all the neurotransmitters work properly so that the serotonin, dopamine and gaba receptors are getting what they need to function properly.
But the lack of inositol wasn't the problem for the pancreatic symptoms rising. It was my primary diet of Long Chained Fatty Acids. I was eating lots of grass fed beef, eggs, tons of GLA (found in primrose, borage and current oil) . Long Chained are found in meat, egg yolks, avocados, olive oil, GLA and fish and fish oil - you can research this further. Coconut Oil and Palm oil are medium chained fatty acids and are the oils of choice.This article (link below) explains why Long Chained Fatty Acids, as well as alcohol, and the ensuing calcium release causes pancreatitis. It's more on the scientific life but if you can bear through that, you will see what actually causes pancreatitis - Long Chained Fatty Acids, Calcium.....
And on Inositol:
The above link on inositol targets mostly how it is used for insulin resistance, but you can goole it for anxiety or depression and liver detoxification. For me using inositol eliminated complete my low blood sugar bouts, which causes huge stress hormones to be released.
