Pancreatitis remedies are few in number. In order to understand what may or may not be a viable home remedy for pancreatitis you first have to have a clear understanding of pancreatitis. What is it, how it happens and so on. The most important in my humble opinion is what pancreatitis is.
Once you have a clear understanding of what pancreatitis is, choosing pancreatitis remedies becomes easier. I personally use the pancreatitis remedies I’ll share with you (read terms of service). My pancreatitis remedies may prove helpful while on your journey towards beating pancreatitis.
Unfortunately you are probably still suffering if you haven’t discovered the pancreatitis remedies I was able to find. I KNOW the suffering you are experiencing with acute and/or chronic pancreatitis because I have experienced the agony which enables me to have a pretty good idea of what your suffering may be like as well. I also understand your need for pancreatitis remedies, simple remedies for pancreatitis you can do at home that promote pancreatitis pain relief and pancreas healing. The following pancreatitis remedies work, at least they have worked for me and will hopefully work for you too.
Pancreatitis Remedies That Make Sense
No matter what condition you are trying to resolve the remedy must usually make common sense. If one of the primary problems is inflammation, why treat the pain while ignoring the inflammation? When it is highly likely that reducing or eliminating the inflammation will also reduce or eliminate the pain and other symptoms, why ignore it? From what I have experienced personally and read copious amounts of material pertaining to, that is exactly what doctors do when it comes to pancreatitis. They treat symptoms while ignoring the inflammation. Maybe I’m missing something? Anyway …
Acute Pancreatitis Remedies
First and foremost I suggest you go to the ER because acute pancreatitis can become life threatening very fast. Being stubborn like me (due to past bad experiences) and treating yourself may not be real wise. Acute pancreatitis, as you may already know, can be mild, moderate, or SEVERE and …
SAP (severe acute pancreatitis) can kill you and SAP doesn’t ALWAYS present with classic symptoms or abnormally HIGH enzyme elevations , , . Many people seem to think that the higher the enzymes the worse the attack but enzyme levels do not necessarily indicate or predict severity . Unfortunately the difference in symptoms (bleeding, organ failure, necrosis), between mild and severe, do not always manifest immediately. What you think may be mild acute could actually turn out to be severe acute and …
When doctors, in the best ERs, have access to modern, cutting-edge tests and equipment yet still can’t diagnose pancreatitis correctly half the time or the severity, how do you expect to diagnose yourself? How would you tell if you need immediate medical attention without taking the prudent route? Don’t be stupid like me. If you have been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and are experiencing the symptoms of acute pancreatitis again you may want to take 800 mgs of ibuprofen but then get your body to the ER. IF you go the ibuprofen route make sure you tell the ER doctor that you took ibuprofen and how much. IF you have never been diagnosed and you suspect pancreatitis do not take ibuprofen (get diagnosed first), just go to the nearest, good ER facility.
Chronic Pancreatitis Remedies
I feel more comfortable sharing what I did and still do to keep my chronic pancreatitis at bay simply because flares or the every day symptoms of chronic pancreatitis are not usually life threatening, at least not in the way that acute pancreatitis can become. I am not saying that CP isn’t dangerous because it can be dangerous. With chronic pancreatitis you have a higher risk of pancreatic cancer. Chronic pancreatitis increases the risk of acute pancreatitis with every meal you eat. So it is still dangerous but not as volatile as acute.
If you are ready to feel better, want to heal your pancreas and live pain-free or at least a ton of improvement then get ready to take the necessary steps.
Step 1 – Do your food diary prep and start your food diary. Use the guidelines found in the various posts on diet for what foods to start with first. Think “organic vegetable juice.” Then progress to what I call a “modified vegan diet.”
Step 2 – Supplements. You need to visit the page on supplements and learn about what works and why you need them. Then get them and take them. You should be taking them while doing the food diary prep and fasting. Then you’ll need to take them for life. You’ll need to find the amounts of grape seed extract, vitamin C and curcumin that work to get results for you. This is where it’s hit and miss. It is best to start slow, with small doses and work up until you notice results. Then squeeze in some more until you are pain-free. That’s the goal with the diet and supplements is to become pain and symptom free. There is no cure for CP but that doesn’t mean you have to endure pain, nausea, vomiting etc and just allow the condition to progress when you can achieve what I call remission and add 10 – 15 – 20 – 30 even 40+ years of life you otherwise may not enjoy.
Step 3 – The “Modified Vegan Diet.” I call it the modified vegan diet because true vegans do not eat animal products and they use oil, high fat nuts, sauces etc. whereas you will eat some animal products (egg whites) and you won’t use oil in any shape or form nor will you eat nuts, seeds or high fat sauces. You’ll learn to cook foods without oil, butter, margarine, cooking sprays and rely upon a quality set of non-stick cookware. So find yourself a good Vegan cookbook or two and simply eliminate any ingredients that are not allowed in those recipes. You’ll be on this modified vegan diet until you have zero symptoms and your abdomen is no longer tender. Once that goal is achieved then you move to …
Step 4 – Trying more foods. Using the food diary protocol you’ll begin trying roasted skinless chicken breast, cod-fish (poached, fried, baked, roasted), or other white meat fish, shrimp, scallops, clams, lobster. Just remember that however you fix these foods, you do not add FAT of any kind. Your goal is no more than 5 grams of fat per meal and a maximum of 25 grams of fat per day, including snacks. That isn’t easy to hit. If everything works out as I suspect it will you will now have more sources of protein, more food choices to enjoy and all without pain or other nasty symptoms.
Step 5 – NEVER Cheat! Cheating on your diet, especially if you skate once, will only entice you to cheat more. Just remember your last acute pancreatitis attack. Remember that pain? The nausea? The vomiting? The tube stuck down your nose? The IV’s? And then consider that one cheat could be that meal that ends your time on earth. A painful, miserable death that might last days or weeks before the actual end comes. All because you had to have that peanut butter and jelly sandwich or some other taboo high fat food. Is it worth it?
