Hi all. I've read all of the remedies suggested here and will gratefully try to implement them. My question is whether or not it would be safe (and still potent) to mix them into one drink 3 times daily. Here is what I'm planning on drinking in one glass:

1 tsp ACV
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup papaya juice
1/3 cup aloe vera juice

I will top off the glass with high PH water to reach the 8 oz mark.

Thanks for your time in advance.

Will_ashbless: Do the buffer mix first, then proceed to Papaya and Aloe Vera (which would go well together). Digestive enzymes (and all enzymes for that matter) cannot survive the acid environment. I have found Magnet Therapy very effective and immediate for Pancreatitis (which I get regularly). One 1hr treatment works for me. I have also had good results w/ the herbal P-14 formula.


Increasing Oxygen and Cellular Nutrition

Posted by Duane (Toronto, Ontario Canada) on 10/20/2011

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.

Duane, that is great news.. Thank you for sharing. I am curious to know more in detail of your father's protocol. Considering his age and prognosis this is truly beating the norm... for pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult from the perspective of mainstream medical procedures.

Dear Duane, I am so happy to hear of your father's success and it has also given me hope. My husband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer also. He is living in another city at this time but will be home the weekend after Thanksgiving. He developed jaundice and a horrible rash which led to the diagnois. He has a tumor in his liver and has a stint inserted to drain the poison from his body. He has improved a bit from this procedure. I am steadily looking for alternatives for him once he arrives. If you would take the time to respond in more detail about your Dad's treatment I would be so grateful. You may email me at pantwine(at)msn.com. I agree with your assessment of what it takes to fight, but I need direction of what to do. Thank you!

I suspect I induced an attack of pancreatitis from the new calcium supplements I recently started taking. I think the excess calcium led to a blockage; either a gallstone or a stone in my pancreatic duct. I got the idea to ingest Malic Acid powder (dissolved in water) from Andreas Moritz's books. His liver/gallbladder cleanse instructions say to drink Malic Acid to soften the stones. So, I dissolved 1/4 teaspoon Malic Acid powder in a small glass of water, and drank this a couple times. I then followed the Malic Acid with homeopathy: Belladonna 30C followed by Mercurius 30C. All better now - took less than a day to get relief!

Pancreatitis and Some Possible Help

Pancreatitis can be a devastating disease, but there are some natural options that may help in controlling pancreatitis.

One of those natural options is melatonin which is one of my favorite supplements! Melatonin is typically thought of as a non- prescription sleep aid, but it is so much more than just a sleep aid! I would like to get into those other potential health benefits, but will stick to pancreatitis for this post to keep it simple and to the point.

Melatonin has a very good safety profile, but even so, some people do not tolerate melatonin well even though it is produced in multiple areas of the human body everyday. Fortunately the majority of people do tolerate melatonin.

In this first study from 2014, it is found that in pancreatitis patients there is a tendency toward reduced melatonin type 2 receptors suggesting that this lack of MTR2 receptors may play a role in pancreatitis especially the acute form :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25055509

In this next full study it is shown that melatonin, ghrelin, and leptin may help in controlling the inflammatory process associated with acute pancreatitis and all three are naturally produced in the body :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4258559/

This next full study (2016) illustrates how a melatonin metabolite, N(1)-acetyl-N(1)-formyl-5-methoxykynuramine (AFMK), can attenuate acute pancreatitis in a rodent model, both in vitro and in vivo:

https://www.jpp.krakow.pl/journal/archive/06_16/pdf/411_06_16_article.pdf

In this next study it is shown that melatonin is protective in a rat model of acute pancreatitis that was induced with arginine and the melatonin was said to exhibit strong therapeutic effects in the course of acute pancreatitis in this rat model of AP. :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27830885

This next study is another study of acute pancreatitis in a rat model and it is shown that melatonin induces anti-inflammatory effects via endoplasmic reticulum stress in acute pancreatitis to play a protective role.

This next full and newer study (2017) goes into multiple details about how melatonin goes about its business when it comes to pancreatitis:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5454927/

This next and newer 2018 study delves further into how and what melatonin may be doing in pancreatitis to help alleviate symptoms and calm the excess inflammation associated with this condition :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2948439

This next study (2018) attempts to further elucidate the method of action of melatonin in pancreatitis and implies that these findings suggest that melatonin protects AR42J cells and Sprague-Dawley rats against AP-associated injury, probably through downregulation of IRE1α-mediated JNK/NF-κB pathways.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29912856

This next study from December 2018 continues in the search for the mechanism of action in how melatonin is working in these rodent models to modify the course of the disease:

This last study is new this month and goes a step further to try and determine how melatonin attenuates pancreatitis induced liver damage! Well I did say that melatonin was one of my favorite supplements!

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30694771

So what is lacking here are the actual human studies, but there are hundreds of human studies which have more than established melatonin as having a very good safety profile at multiple dosing ranges while being highly protective of the liver which is a very important factor when it comes to pancreatitis! Based on the above it is worth discussing the use of melatonin with your doctor as a potential means of helping to deal with pancreatitis effectively.

There are several natural supplements that have shown benefit in dealing with pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer such as Inositol and inositol hexakisphosphate. If you are willing to look, you will find other supplements and herbs which are likely to be quite beneficial in dealing with pancreatitis, but melatonin is a good starting point and may be as far as you have to go! Here is a typical study suggesting as much :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28965010

Obviously because of the serious and sometimes deadly nature of pancreatitis, your doctor's permission and supervision are an absolute must if you consider melatonin or anything else and the very good safety profile of melatonin will go a long way in that conversation with your doctor!

The following study discusses the use of synbiotics in pancreatitis and suggests that synbiotics (= prebiotic + probiotics). In this case, they used the common probiotics Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum in a large dose (12 grams/day). As a prebiotic, they used Fructooligosaccharides (FOS).

Effects of using symbiotics in the clinical nutritional evolution of patients with chronic pancreatitis: Study prospective, randomized, controlled, double blind.

Dos Santos PQ1, Guedes JC2, de Jesus RP3, Santos RRD3, Fiaconne RL4.

Abstract

Patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) present malabsorption and changes in nutritional status. In this prospective, randomized, controlled, double-blinded, intervention study, developed at the Clinic of Pancreas, we aimed to assess whether the use of symbiotics changes the nutritional status, the biochemical data and the intestinal rate of these patients. The intervention consisted of administering 12 g/day of symbiotics composed of Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and fructooligosaccharides to the intervention group and 12 g/day of medium absorption complex carbohydrate to the control group. The project was approved by the Ethics Committee of College of Technology and Science - FTC under the number process 0528-2008; reg. 498 e was registered under ClinicalTrials.gov. We evaluated 60 patients and the intervention lasted for 3 months, with monthly monitoring. A statistically significant reduction was observed in the results by day in relation to the initial frequency (x = 2.3) and the use of symbiotics in the second (x = 1.47) and third (x = 1.37) months (p = 0.001). In the control group, there was no significant change in this frequency (p = 0.157). The results showed an increase in the levels of hemoglobin (p < 0.001), hematocrit (p = 0.001), red blood cells (p < 0.001), total lymphocyte count (p < 0.002), serum magnesium (p < 0.001), albumin (0.001) and total serum cholesterol reduction (p < 0.001) with the use of symbiotics. The changes were not observed in the nutritional status of both groups.

CONCLUSION:

The use of symbiotics improved the clinical and laboratory profiles of the evaluated patients with CP, favoring the best clinical outcome, and may be a therapeutic option because of the low cost and therapeutic effectiveness in this population.

Pancreas: As stated in the Heinerman's Encylopedia of Healing juices, "There is nothing better, I mean nothing better, than stringbean juice for the liver, spleen, and pancreas." 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 *_*

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

The standard treatment for pancreatitis is fasting, but your pancreas has to be failing by the time they give you the treatment. Since hospitals don't expect you to be able to tolerate fasting for longer than 12 hours, and the time needed is about 5 days, they tube feed you, etc. If you want to avoid the indignity of that, just fast on water only, ie. absolutely nothing passes your lips other than water. Why doesn't this article mention fasting? Why does it tell you to eat things? That's the opposite of what helps. Selenium and megadose Niacinamide also helps, but make sure there's no rice flour or starch in it, or the pancreas has to work again and more pain is the result. I think the cause is an infection, but good luck proving it, or finding the right medicine for it. Looks like most of the antibiotics just make it worse. Maybe it's a fungus or virus?
