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 a gland present in the abdomen and has four parts i.e. head, neck, body, and tail. 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.

Signs and Symptoms of Pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis: The signs and symptoms of acute pancreatitis include pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to the back. Eating and drinking make the pain worse. 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.

Chronic pancreatitis: A case of chronic pancreatitis presents itself with almost similar symptoms as that of acute pancreatitis. It includes recurrent episodes of abdomen pain, nausea, and vomiting. 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.

    Hello Dr. Sharm,
    I have been struggling with pancreatic insufficiency for eighth years, but this winter the problems intensified, and the pain between the stomach and the navel is quite unpleasant after eating, even with diet and enzyme use. Sometimes pain fires in the middle and lower back and the stomach is also sometimes irritated, at the same time I feel a slight feeling of heartburn. The least comfortable position is in sitting position during everyday activities during PC work and driving.

  16. Carey Ferrizz says:

    Hi, my name is Carey, and I have been having, a lot of these symptoms, as well as, my biological father was diagnosed with pancreatitus, that you mention. I’ve been suffering with these symptoms for well over 2 years now, but everytime I go to see my primary care doctor, an they do lab work, they tell me nothing is wrong, it’s all in my head. However, recently I fired my primary, and found a new doctor, and he gave me a referral to see a gastronologist. How do I explain to him, that everytime I eat, or drink anything, my upper abdomen swells out/hurts really bad, I’m nauseous all the time, and my stool comes out looking like straight oily yellow bile? Sometime it’s fizzy as well. Oh, and I’ve been having these stabbing, lower back pains, that radiate to my front side, where my kidneys are.
