Pancreas is a critical organ with a range of tasks in the human being. I consider pancreas as the forgotten organ. The doctors and patients focus their attention on this gland when there is already too late, in the end-stage of chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer.
There are no safe medications to increase digestive pancreatic function or the routine tests to diagnose the beginning of chronic pancreatitis. It looks like a paradox when in the medical literature chronic pancreatitis’s symptoms are described as the chronic pain, diarrhea, fatigue, and lost weight. These symptoms appear when there is only 10% pancreatic tissue works, and it is very difficult to treat this condition. Regrettably, the life without normal pancreatic function is miserable.
The person with chronic pancreatitis typically loses 90% of the pancreatic function In the duration of the 8-15 ears mainly after the first bout of upper left quadrant abdominal pain, combined with nausea, vomiting, bloating, gas, fever, belching, diarrhea or constipation. Commonly it happens after large, fatty dinner with alcohol drinks and may be the first alarming signal of the launch of chronic pancreatitis.
From this time, future of the person’s health depends upon many things, which may speed up the death of the pancreatic cells.
Knowing and avoiding the triggers, may save the life and health.
- The unhealthful eating habits including harmful food combining, eating on the go
- The consumption the of the processed, toxic, acid-forming foods without natural digestive enzymes
- Use the toxic substances such as alcohol, environmental contaminants, smoking, drugs, and some medications
- The sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, bile sludge, and gallbladder stones due to aggressive, acidic bile acids
- The fatty liver and fatty pancreas, diabetes, and overweight issue,
- The obstruction of the pancreatic duct due to the sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, or gallbladder stones
- The intestinal dysbiosis such as SIBO, Candida-yeast overgrowth, and parasites in the bile system
- Chronic anxiety and stress
- The hormonal changes, for instance, lower thyroid, menopause, and diabetes
- The shortage of minerals, bicarbonate, trace elements, some vitamins
- The condition after surgeries such as tumor or gallbladder removal, pancreatic trauma
- Whole body acidity, and more
People, even medical practitioners are not familiar with the major culprit of chronic pancreatitis. It is whole body acidity with the medical name-chronic metabolic acidosis. I wrote about it in my EBook and medical and popular articles on the web.
By medical papers, experimental and clinical evidence, and my many of years of the experience of treatment of the acute and chronic pancreatitis, I believe that acidity kills the pancreas.
It is known; the pancreas and liver are alkaline digestive glands. They create the very alkaline pancreatic juice and bile. If the human being gets too many acidic compounds from food and environment, or human cells and yeast fermentation produce much lactic acid, whole body acidity occur. The medical expression for the whole body acidity is metabolic acidosis. Currently, chronic metabolic acidosis is common all over the globe due to consumption of the acid-formed foods and acidic lifestyle.
How the metabolic acidosis does harm the pancreas?
It leads to the premature activation of the digestive enzymes inside the pancreatic duct creates self-digestion, inflammation, and pancreatitis. We know the pancreas is the only single internal organ in the body that may damage itself.
It is known; pancreatic digestive enzymes need the alkaline environment to work. Acidity inactivates the pancreatic lipase; therefore, the individual with chronic pancreatitis cannot digest fatty food. Acidic pancreatic juice loses the antibacterial action. Therefore, the SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) occurs.
In a case of the acidity, the very aggressive bile acids are precipitated in the bile. Bile is getting very irritated to the bile ducts, gallbladder, and sphincter of Oddi causing the spasms, inflammation, bile reflux, and formation of gallstones.
If we know the danger of the whole body acidity, we may recognize the healthy, natural way to support the pancreas.
Alkalinizing is the key for the pancreatic health and the treatment of chronic pancreatitis. It can be made by providing the human being with natural minerals, bicarbonate, and trace elements, keeping the alkaline diet, ingesting cellular magnesium-potassium, and drinking healing mineral water.
Many individuals are familiar with the alkaline diet and magnesium-potassium, but many Americans know next to nothing about using the healing mineral water to support the pancreatic health. Quite the opposite, Europeans spend their holidays in the mineral spas. It is common healing practice in the Europe.
For example, European medical doctors have sent their patient, which had the digestive problems to drink Karlovy Vary thermal spring water since the 16th century. Two hundred and fifty of years, doctors from Europe recommend home cure by drinking mineral water that is made from genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt.
Many articles and books prove the benefits of the medical use of the Karlovy Vary healing mineral water in chronic pancreatitis to recover digestion, reduce pain and spasms, and lessen constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn. Drinking the healing mineral water can be mixed with any conventional or alternative therapies.
