Homeopathic Management of Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis refers to the inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreas has two main functions – exocrine and endocrine. The exocrine function is to aid digestion, and the endocrine function is to regulate the blood sugar levels in the body. Pancreatitis can be acute or chronic; in an acute condition, there is a sudden, short-term inflammation, while in chronic cases, there is long-lasting inflammation of the pancreas that can last for months or years. Homeopathy essentially plays a supportive role in treating pancreatitis. Homeopathic medicines should be used in conjunction with other conventional methods of treatment to help in the symptomatic management of pancreatitis. Homeopathic medicines help manage the symptoms of pancreatitis like abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Homeopathic medicines for pancreatitis.

There are many causes that lead to pancreatitis, but the main ones include excessive intake of alcohol and the formation of gallstones. Other causes of pancreatitis are smoking, high levels of calcium or triglycerides, infection, injury, cystic fibrosis, narrow or blocked ducts of the pancreas and certain medications. In around 15 to 30 percent of the cases of pancreatitis, the cause remains unknown.

Homeopathic Management of Pancreatitis

The most suitable homeopathic medicine for pancreatitis is selected individually based upon the prominent symptoms of the patient. Finalizing homeopathic prescription for pancreatitis requires a detailed case analysis followed by its evaluation. Since it is a supplementary treatment to be taken with regular medicine, homeopathic treatment for pancreatitis should be taken under the supervision of a homeopathic physician and self-medication should be avoided.

The pancreas is approximately 6 inches to 10 inches in length and performs both exocrine as well as endocrine function. Around 95 % of pancreas gland performs an exocrine function, and the rest consists of cells called Islets of Langerhans that perform the endocrine function. The enzymes pancreatic protease (trypsin and chymotrypsin), serum amylase and lipase perform the exocrine function. The pancreatic protease help to digest proteins, serum amylase aid digestion of carbohydrates and serum lipase help for digesting fats. Insulin and glucagon perform the endocrine role that controls the blood glucose levels.

Leaning forwards may bring pain relief while lying flat on the back worsens the pain. Tender abdomen, nausea, vomiting, fever, jaundice, diarrhea are other features attending pain in the abdomen.

Other features that accompany these symptoms are appetite loss, weight loss due to poor absorption of food, jaundice, smelly and greasy stool. Chances are also there to develop diabetes if the cells that produce insulin get damaged.

    Hi Dr. Sharma

    I am writing for my husband. He was a long time drinker and is now suffering the effects of that. He no longer drinks and we are trying to manage it with diet but he is still in some form of pain at all times.

    He has been hospitalized for it several times. Approx. 5 years ago he had a surgery where they removed his gallbladder and somehow kept the duct open because he had a stone in the duct and they had to surgically remove it – I believe it is called a whipple procedure.

    Please advise if you think you can help him.

    • Yogesh Gaikar says:

      Hi Doctor,
      I am suffering from Acute Panchritis since last 5 months. I have been hospitalized 3 times due to severe abdominal pain.

      As per diagnosis I have small sludge in my gall bladder and as per my physician due to which it may be causing pancreatic attacks.I have changed my lifestyle and diet in accordance with the disease but still the issue continued.

      The doctor is suggesting if after change in lifestyle also if the attacks continues then removal of gall bladder is the only solution.

      Though i am not willing to remove any organ from my body.

      Requesting to suggest possible treatment without any surgery.
