The steps to healing Chronic Pancreatitis are the same as healing after Acute Pancreatitis however …
I sorta dropped the ball by not posting the steps like I promised in this post Pancreas Healing: 5 Steps to Pancreas Healing After Acute Pancreatitis.
The thing is, like I said in my last sentence or paragraph of the above post, the protocol I use is almost EXACTLY the same.
The only difference for ME, since I have already done prep and a pancreatitis diet food diary YEARS ago, is that I don’t have to do that step. Otherwise pancreas healing for chronic pancreatitis is the same as the original in regards to protocol. In fact, if I had pain or symptoms I would, depending upon severity of symptoms, follow what I outlined anyway because:
1) The pancreas needs rest to heal
2) Food has to be re-introduced slowly
3) The right solid food must be eaten when solid food is again able to be eaten
4) The supplements are important
5) Alcohol must be avoided
And if someone with chronic pancreatitis has NOT done a food diary the PREP and DIARY are essential to finding out exactly what does and does not cause problems. That way those who do NOT believe me about the two enemies (FAT and Alcohol) will find that what I say is true and that if they continue to eat foods that shouldn’t be eaten they will continue to be sick.
In other words those who would rather eat steak (red meat), bacon (pork), and other extremely high trigger, fat-filled foods and drink alcohol will continue to be sick and progressively become worse while they blame their problems on grapes, peaches, brussels sprouts, cabbage, beans, lentils, spices or some other usually safe, anti-inflammatory, pancreas healing food.
So there ya go, in a nutshell, those with chronic pancreatitis need to do the exact same things in order to begin healing and IF …
They have suffered enough damage (I do NOT know how much that might be) or have been butchered by a surgeon so their pancreas looks like a filleted fish (whipple procedure for example) they may never truly heal to where they feel decent ever again and that really sucks but it is truthful.
So if you currently suffer from chronic pancreatitis your steps to healing are the same as those found here especially if you are currently in constant pain.
I hope you are able to heal.
