The pancreas is an integral part of the digestive system, and at the same time it is an important part of the hormone system responsible for metabolism. The pancreas belongs to the organs of life-support, since without it the digestive process will simply be stopped. The pancreas produces enzymes that break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats. On the other hand, this body, synthesizing insulin and glucagon, is responsible for the normal metabolism.

What is pancreatitis?
Inflammation of the pancreas is the most common pathology, and it is called pancreatitis. This disease is not infectious, it is characterized by swelling and dying of the glandular tissue, a violation of the normal structure and functioning of the organ. One of the causes of pancreatitis is a violation of the outflow of the secret, due to narrowing of its duct due to the appearance of a tumor or scar.
Enzymes produced by the gland, due to blockage of the duct, are not thrown into the duodenum, but destroy the gland itself, the process of self-digestion begins. There are several types of pancreatic disease. Recognize them only by a doctor, based on anamnesis, the results of instrumental examination and laboratory tests. The nature of the course varies:
- Acute pancreatitis
- recurrent( recurrent)
- Sluggish chronic pancreatitis
- chronic with exacerbation
Usually chronic pancreatitis is a consequence of acute pancreatitis. If the inflammation worsens earlier 6 months, it is considered a relapse of acute pancreatitis, and if after six months, it is an exacerbation of a chronic disease. Disease is also classified according to the nature and extent of organ damage.
Signs of pancreatitis
Acute pancreatitis differs, above all, in pain. It can be pulling, dull or, on the contrary, sharp, unbearably cutting. If the pain syndrome is not removed in time, it can lead to a painful shock, and, as a result, to a fatal outcome. Pain can be on the right, or be given to the left hypochondrium, depending on which part of the pancreas is affected by inflammation. Pain can be shingling if most of the organ is affected by inflammation.
Inflammation leads to a sharp increase in body temperature, as well as reduced pressure, weakness. In rare cases, the pressure may increase. The skin acquires an earthy-gray hue due to the fact that the bile enters the blood. In acute pancreatitis, nausea, hiccups with eructations, and vomiting with bile are observed. But after vomiting, there is no improvement. Around the navel or on the lower back there are blue spots. This is due to the fact that the blood from the inflamed organ penetrates under the skin.
Inflammation can also be accompanied by cystic, bleeding, inflammation of the abdominal diaphragm.
Traditional medicine for pancreatitis
If you are diagnosed with pancreatitis, you should follow the doctor's instructions. Especially in the stage of exacerbation. But then, when the symptoms of exacerbation are removed, you can help your body cope with this ailment through traditional medicine. Just talk about the recipes of herbal medicine with your doctor.
Dietary drinks from folk healers
As a dietary dish that will help the pancreas patient cope with the ailment, folk medicine offers two wonderful recipes.5 grams of dry( or 15 grams of fresh) licorice, burdock and dandelion roots, taken in equal parts, pour half a liter of cold water, bring everything to a boil, strain and cool a little. You can drink this broth instead of tea after eating. The licorice root has a sweetish taste, it will sweeten the slight bitterness of the dandelion root.
Cope with pancreatic disease will also help oatmeal jelly. It is prepared as follows. Oats must be picked, soaked and put in a warm place. In a day, sprout the seeds, rinse, dry on a paper napkin and grind into flour using a coffee grinder. The resulting flour, dilute with cold water and pour into boiling water, cook for 3 minutes, as usual, cook the jelly on the starch. This oatmeal kissel will serve for a pancreatic patient with a dietary dish and a drug at the same time. Cook it right before use.
Herbs in the fight against pancreatitis
Grass celandine and mountaineer bird, three-color violet flowers, dandelion roots and corn stigmas should be taken in equal parts, approximately 10 grams. All components must be crushed and mixed. Divide the mixture into two parts. One part pour a glass of boiling water and cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
Cool the broth and take 1 tablespoon 3 times daily before meals. Once your broth is coming to an end, prepare a new dose of medicine. And so for two weeks. After two weeks, you should take a break and change the prescription so that the product does not become addictive. We offer the following tool to replace.
Wonderful herb - sandwich immortelle, promotes bile secretion, strengthens the secretion of gastric juice, activates the functioning of the pancreas, stops the blood. 1 tablespoon of chopped flowers must be poured into a glass of hot water for 15 minutes on a smallfire, then strain. Take half an hour before eating one third of the glass.
Broth also helps with gastritis with low acidity and liver diseases. Pay attention to the fact that hypertensive patients should be more careful with this drug, as the sandstone increases the pressure. It is recommended to take a break in two weeks. Do not combine this drug with herbal remedies, which include an immortelle.
For example, with this. We take 20 grams of flowers immortelle and 10 grams of chamomile, 30 grams of fennel seeds and 20 grams of hawthorn berries, 30 grams of peppermint leaves. It is also necessary to grind and mix, and the dry mixture is divided into two parts. One part is filled with a glass( 250grams) of boiling water. The mixture should be infused, cooling down to room temperature. Take should be also 1 tablespoon after eating. Term of treatment is a month. Then you should take a break.

To cook it, it is necessary in a small saucepan in 1 tbsp.spoon finely chopped herbs with flowers, pour 250 hot water and boil for 2-3 minutes, and leave for an hour to insist.

What you can eat with pancreatitis
Pancreatitis is a very serious ailment, and you can not treat it lightly. The first two days of an acute attack should be given rest to the pancreas and the whole digestive system, that is, to starve. On the third and fourth day you can drink unsweetened tea and eat a little, but often rubbed cereal broths. On the 5th day in the menu, carrots or mashed potatoes are introduced. You can eat fish boiled or steamed, cook soufflé, pâté, steam cutlets from it. A wonderful dietary dish can become the ear. As it is known, fats are not added to it.
In the ear you can add a little bit of potatoes and millet. The greens of dill and bay leaves will not only improve the taste, but will also help iron work. Gradually milk is introduced into the diet, cottage cheese, skimmed sour cream. In a small amount solid cheese, such as Russian or Dutch, is allowed. When pancreatitis is very important to eat the first dishes, for example, vermicelli soup with the addition of vegetables. You can also have homemade noodles or pasta in soups. Meat products are allowed for low-fat beef and white chicken meat without skin. Fish should choose river.
What can not be eaten by a patient with pancreatitis?
For a patient with pancreatitis, there is an unspoken taboo - it is fat and alcohol. Alcohol can cause an acute attack of pancreatitis, which will lead to a hospital bed at best. Absolutely contraindicated food, prepared with the addition of fats and oils. For example, a patient will have to forget about fried potatoes with pork. Pork and lamb are contraindicated even in boiled and stewed form, as these meat products contain a high percentage of fat.
I'll have to forget about all kinds of oils - creamy, margarine, animal and vegetable fats.
Even such a useful and beloved olive oil is also prohibited. Egg yolks( they contain fat), mayonnaise( in it - vegetable oil, vinegar) and other sauces and seasonings, sausages, smoked foods and most canned products fall into the list of prohibited products. However, it is possible to make an exception to boiled sausages, but it is necessary to carefully study the label so that there is no pork in the sausage.
If you look closely, then the prohibited products are much more than allowed. But health is more important. A man who has once suffered an acute attack of pancreatitis will think 10 times before bringing a glass of vodka and a piece of lamb shish kebab to his mouth. Benefits from such a momentary pleasure, no, especially if the fit is accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and the torture can not last for one day. In acute pancreatitis diet can be prescribed for a period of 6 months to one year, with chronic it can last for several years.
