Beating pancreatitis requires knowledge and dedication. My mission is to share information that may result in relieving the pain and suffering of those who learn and adopt the ideas I’ve used to survive, pain free, for years.

Cannabis – Do You Use Cannabis? Cannabis Oil, Weed, Marijuana, Herb, Pot

Cannabis – Do You Use Cannabis? Cannabis Oil, Weed, Marijuana, Herb, Pot

Many people who suffer from pancreatitis use cannabis in some form for such as cannabis oil or they smoke weed (Marijuana) for relief of symptoms such as intractable pain and nausea yet a word of caution … There is an inherent risk of Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome or CHS [1,2,3] due to a poison called Azadirachtin [4,5]. Azadirachtin is found in the seeds of the Neem tree, Azadirachta indica (Neem Oil) and is used as an organic pesticide. Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome Symptoms…

Chicken Vegetable Soup That Is Simply Delicious!

Chicken Vegetable Soup That Is Simply Delicious!

I created a chicken vegetable soup that was so lip smacking good that I just have to share it. It should be completely safe because it is made with nothing that is unsafe for those of us who suffer with chronic pancreatitis. The picture is NOT my soup. I am one of the very few people on the planet that does not have a cell phone with a camera or a camera I could use to take digital pictures. So…

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, often called pancreatic insufficiency, is the inability of your digestive system to break down and properly digest the foods you eat.

New Recipe Category

New Recipe Category

I was thinking of adding recipe pages (a whole category) because people have been asking for quite sometime whether I have a cookbook or one I recommend and … I don’t. I have never seen an adequately safe cookbook for pancreatitis victims. And recently some ladies have put the bug in my ear about starting a page of recipes. If some of you ladies with creative cooking skills will do the actual recipes (write them down) send them to me…

Learn Which Foods Trigger Acute Pancreatitis Or CP Flares

Learn Which Foods Trigger Acute Pancreatitis Or CP Flares

Learn which foods trigger acute pancreatitis or CP flares. This is extremely important and can only be accomplished in a reliable way by using a food diary.
