Pancreatitis

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ambala

Chronic pancreatitis in ayurveda.

Introduction.

Pancreas also known as aganashaya/grahani is celebrated as the special seat of agni (fire) in the body. 
 Ayurvedic treatment chronic pancreatitis.

Pancreatitis in the initial phase is vata-pita (air & fire elements) aggravation in rasa dhatu (digestive fluids) situated in agnashaya (pancreas). In the chronic state there is dhatu kshaya (degenerative changes) in agnashaya.
Pancreatitis is one of the most painful conditions. In western thought it refers to a state of inflammation of the pancreas. The changes taking place in chronic pancreatitis are known to be irreversible. Enzymes become activated while still in pancreas, irritating the pancreatic cells causing inflammation and associated signs and symptoms.
Many causes of pancreatitis are known like alcoholism, gall stones, abdominal surgery, medications, smoking, high triglycerides, hypercalcemia, family history of pancreatitis, hyper parathyroidism and cystic fibrosis. Another common cause is idiopathic or simply unknown.

Our approach
We have treated a wide range of cases of chronic pancreatitis including:
•autoimmune condition in kids
•idiopathic
•alcoholic
•necrotising varieties.
Where pancreatitis has progressed to a chronic stage it is better managed with our medicines and dietary guidelines. The medicines vary from person to person depending on the age, body constitution and disease status. All these aspects are assessed by our doctors before deciding the line of treatment. The aim of the treatment is to balance air and fire elements. We don’t admit the patients as panchakarma procedures are not required in these cases.

Ayurveda pancreatitis
#amla-the wonder herb in pancreatitis
In acute cases our medicines could not give the desired results and such cases are better handled with allopathic medicine as the aim of the treatment is to tide over the crisis and give supportive treatment.

•duration of treatment varies from 2-6 months. The patient will first start experiencing a better digestion but the pain might still come. Slowly, over the next few weeks the intensity and frequency of pains will decrease. There is a chance of relapse of symptoms during the treatment if patient does not comply with dietary instructions.

#diet and #lifestyle
#food -
•use satvik diet consisting of vegetables, cereals, fruits and non refined items. More stress should be on cooked rather than uncooked.
•diluted buttermilk (#lassi) and indian gooseberry (amla) are the choicest of foods for chronic pancreatitis in ayurveda. Lassi can be made by mixing 10 ml of curd in 50 ml of water. Cumin powder and salt can be added to taste. Taking curd alone is not good.

The following are to be #avoided -

•foods having pungent and sour taste are to be avoided in general.
•fish, meat, cheese, curd, raw onion, garlic, lemon, hot spicy food
•refined wheat flour, refined sugar, deep fried food, fast food
•refrigerated foods like ice cream
•alcohol and smoking. Ayurvedic drink pancreatitis

#lifestyle
•vajrasana (thunderbolt pose) after food
•avoid daytime sleeping.
•dinner should be very light preferably soups.

Hi. It's a classical case of GERD. Apart from medicines dietary precautions are equally important. Avoid spicy/oily/ non veg/ fried food. Take heavy breakfast, normal lunch and very light dinner. Avoid complex carbohrydrate like chocolate and cookies. Take plenty of water. Do not lie immediately after taking your meals (walk for 20 min. Elevate your head end by 30 degrees while sleeping. For medications you can consult online as I don't prescribe medicine on open forum.

Take frequent small meals instead of 3 large meals. Do not keep stomach empty for long time. Try to maintain your eating timings. Avoid spicy and fatty food. Alcohol and tobacco in all forms should be avoided. Antibiotics and anti acidity medicines are to be taken for a period of 10 to 14 days. These are prescription medicines and will be required to be taken under guidance of a medical practitioner.

The basic difference between curd and buttermilk is the process of dilution by the addition of water. The more water you put in curd, the less concentrated the buttermilk becomes. According to Ayurveda, the churning (montana) of the curd into buttermilk, gives it additional properties. Churning induces the proteins in the buttermilk to be easily digested due to their degraded structure.

Dear lybrate-user, you are right, some effect are diluted and some effects are added, like if we take food with curd it works like sedative where as not with butter milk.
