Home remedies for pancreatitis treatment

Pancreatitis is a painful condition marked by inflammation of the pancreas - a large gland that plays an integral role in regulating digestion. While pancreatitis requires prompt medical care, a variety of natural remedies (used to complement but not replace traditional care) can help alleviate pain and other pancreatitis symptoms. 

There are two variations of pancreatitis: acute and chronic. Acute pancreatitis is the more common type of condition. 

The pancreas is situated behind your stomach, and release enzymes into your stomach to encourage the breakdown of food. Enzymes, or digestive juices, made by the pancreas are inserted into the small intestine to further break down food after it has left the stomach. The gland also produces the hormone insulin and divides it into the bloodstream so as to modulate the body's sugar or glucose level. These hormones help the body control the way that it uses food for energy. When pancreatitis occurs, those enzymes erroneously attack the very tissues that produce them. Often brought on by an infection, acute pancreatitis causes such symptoms as severe pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, and vomiting. Treatment usually includes hospital treatment with intravenous (IV) fluids, antibiotics, and pain medication.
