Pancreas Diseases – Natural Therapy

The pancreas is an elongated and tapered gland that lies across the back of the abdomen behind the stomach in the loop of the duodenum. It secretes digestive enzymes into the duodenum and hormones, such as insulin, into the blood stream.

 Digestive enzymes are released from the cells of the pancreas into a network of ducts, including the pancreatic duct. The pancreatic duct joins the common bile duct at the ampulla of Vater also known as the hepatopancreatic ampulla. The sphincter of Oddi (the valve between the ampulla of Vater and duodenum) regulates the flow of bile and pancreatic juice through the ampulla into the duodenum, as well as preventing the entry of duodenal contents back into the ampulla of Vater.

 For example, the main reason for development of pancreatic diseases, especially pancreatitis is the problems of liver and gallbladder. Why? When there are the difficulties with secretion or elimination of the bile they can cause back up in the pancreatic duct and predispose to congestion and inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreatic digestive enzymes, which trapped inside, start to digest their own pancreatic cells causing congestion, inflammation, pain, cysts and finally death of the tissue of pancreas. Thus, pancreatitis can result from a failure of pancreatic secretions to drain properly.

The pancreas also secretes large amounts of sodium bicarbonate, which protects the duodenum by neutralizing the acid that comes from the stomach. The sodium bicarbonate also makes alkaline environment for proper function of digestive enzymes and normal function of the sphincter of Oddi.

This area is a central gate to many liver, gallbladder and pancreas problems. Many scientists believe that the Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD) is a culprit of the pancreas diseases and opposite, the proper function of this valve is a right way to healing congestion and inflammation of the pancreatic gland.

European doctors have been used healing mineral water preparing from the Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt for pancreas, liver and gallbladder diseases for more than 250 years. Despite its popularity among patients in Europe, balneology worldthis therapy is still largely unknown in the United States and Canada.

These digestive hormones regulate the whole digestion, promote secretion and elimination of bile and the pancreatic juices, and control the proper function of the bile and the pancreatic ducts and valves. 

Beside that, Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water supplies the pancreas with minerals and bicarbonates, the main ingredients of the pancreatic juices.  Healing mineral water preparing from the genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt may help with two major problems -pancreatic pain and pancreatic insufficiency.

 Czech scientists found also that the water can promote secretion and increase the activity of pancreatic enzymes in healthy volunteers, people with chronic pancreatitis, and patients after gallbladder removal.

This healing mineral water contains almost all minerals and trace elements which are important for human body. Water prepared from the genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt heals inflammations and repairs malfunctions of the digestion.
