Pancreatitis from a Holistic Perspective
Vital Pancreatitis Information at a Glance
Pancreatitis is the inflammation of your pancreas. It could arise due to infections, faulty diet, excessive alcohol consumption or genetic reasons. Sudden and severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, Jaundice, increased heart rate and low blood pressure are the major symptoms of pancreatitis. Certain Drugs and medications could also cause adverse effects on your liver and the pancreas and could lead to pancreatitis. It is a progressive disease that damages your pancreas to the point of no return. Pancreatitis should NEVER be ignored as it can lead to severe complications like severe malnutrition, kidney failure, breathing problems and even pancreatic cancer. When pancreatitis begins it may show trivial symptoms like nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain but once it progresses the symptoms and complications can even lead to death! Your health is important to us and our Specialists are here to provide you the support you need. Remember the earlier you address the root cause, the sooner you’ll be on the road to health and freedom.
Ayurveda, TCM and Homeopathy have a long history, supported by modern research, of potentially benefiting the structure and function of your pancreas. Rejuvenating the pancreas is of obvious importance here and there is no lack of prior use or modern evidence to show that nature can benefit the pancreas. Sooner or later you’ll realize that Nature completes you in many ways. However, despite the research, Ayurveda is only considered medicine in India and no treatment or cure claims can be made for it in the USA. Homeopathy is medicine in the USA but you must meet a Doctor licensed in a state for the treatment of Pancreatitis.
You are however, free to consult one of our naturally inclined Doctors or take any herb or homeopathic you wish to, for the health of your pancreas.
Only Biogetica Doctors have access to our unique precedent setting products, many of which have patents published for them.

Biogetica Researches all Possible Ingredients Before Formulating our Multidisciplinary Kit
There has been growing research on numerous herbs, homeopathic ingredients and supplements globally for improving pancreatic functions and balancing your digestive system. Biogetica now has numerous published patents in the field of Natural Medicine.
In one Chinese study, the test herbs successfully inhibited pancreatic enzymes and improved microcirculation as well as boosted immunity by blocking the pathological progress of severe acute pancreatitis.1
This peer reviewed and published research has most probably not been studied or approved by the FDA in your country as a cure of Pancreatitis. The FDA of each land is the only authority that can decide if something is a cure or not and hence no claims can be made and you are advised to see a local Doctor for Pancreatitis treatment. However, you’re welcome to take these herbs to boost pancreatic and digestive health.
Below is information on the more compelling and popular ingredients that we have found after studying all possibilities from traditional medicine systems and the latest research available today.
We strive each day to give natural medicine the respect it deserves and hope that you will join us in this quest today. We vow to be with you every step of the way on the road from disease to ease that manifests each day!
Research on Ingredients
- Bromelain concentrate: Several In vitro and In vivo studies have highlighted that bromelain demonstrates anti-edematous, anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic and fibrinolytic activities. Moreover, recent results from preclinical and pharmacological studies showed bromelain successfully modulate immune functions, eliminate burn debris and accelerate wound healing.2 In addition, bromelain has a relatively broad pH range and consequently, bromelain used in combination with pancreatic enzymes facilitated digestion in cases of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Thus, these properties indicate that bromelain potentially supports the healthy functioning of the pancreas.3
- Papain concentrate: Several clinical investigations have highlighted that papain demonstrates hypolipidemic, anthelmintic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, diuretic, anti-hypertensive, anti-proliferative and free radical scavenging activities. These versatile properties, therefore, make papain a valuable resource in maintaining an optimum functioning pancreatic gland.4
- Pancreatin: A study on a group of patients with advanced pancreatic insufficiency reported that a combination of enteric-coated pancreatin and cimetidine, each given orally after a solid test meal, resulted in the reduction of stool bulk and fat excretion in all patients. In fact, 67% patients reported complete resolution. The result thus highlights that pancreatin may positively influence the functions of the pancreatic gland.5

Pancreas plays a vital role in digestion and metabolism of food. Therefore, any affection of the pancreas causes digestive disorders.
Pancreatitis, which refers to an inflammation of your pancreas can be acute, which lasts for a few days, or chronic, which develops gradually and persists for many years. Pancreatitis is caused mainly due to excessive intake of alcohol, and gall stones. It is characterized by symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Pancreatitis can lead to severe complications, if left untreated.
Acute Pancreatitis is an acute inflammation of the pancreas, typically presenting with abdominal pain and raised pancreatic enzymes. It has an incidence of 5-10 per 100,000 people.
Causes of Acute Pancreatitis
The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes, which are activated in the intestine. Acute pancreatitis occurs when these enzymes are activated in the pancreatic duct system. Risk factors for the same are as follows:
- Gall stones
- Local obstructive factors (duodenal diverticulum, cancer in the head of the pancreas)
- Drugs like Azathioprine
- Infections like Mumps
- Hyper proteinemia
- Major surgery or operative procedure
- Liver failure
- Abdominal trauma
Signs and Symptoms of Acute Pancreatitis
Pain - The onset is sudden, with severe pain in the epigastrium or right side of the abdomen. It often occurs within 12-24 hours of a large meal or alcohol. Pain is usually persistent, and most frequently radiates through the back, to either shoulder or to one of the iliac fossae, before spreading to involve the whole abdomen.
Nausea and vomiting are common.
In severe cases, shock supervenes, and there is increased heart rate, low blood pressure and kidney failure.
On examination, there may be fever, jaundice, and bluish discoloration of the flanks or around the umbilicus.
Sometimes, abdominal rigidity, ascites and breathlessness are seen.
Complications Associated with Acute Pancreatitis
Abscess formation; hemorrhage in the pancreas; vomiting of blood; diabetes mellitus.
Diagnosis of Acute Pancreatitis
Blood Tests - Serum Amylase is elevated on the first day of the disease. A five-fold rise is diagnostic of the disease.
Serum Lipase is elevated for longer periods than Serum Amylase.
Blood Sugar may reveal a transient rise.
Serum Calcium levels may fall, which may lead to tetany.
Fibrinogen level falls especially in hemorrhagic pancreatitis.
Urine Tests - Urinary amylase activity measured on a 24 hour collection of urine may be helpful when the serum level is not diagnostic.
X-rays - These are helpful in detecting the cause of pancreatitis.
Imaging - Ultrasound and CT scan are used to confirm the diagnosis, and are vital in monitoring the progression of the disorder.
Chronic Pancreatitis is defined as a continuing inflammatory disease of the pancreas, characterized by irreversible morphological changes and typically causing pain and/or permanent impairment of function
Causes of Chronic Pancreatitis
- Persistent high alcohol consumption
- Gall bladder stones
- Geographic location, especially the tropics
Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Pancreatitis
The disease is most common in men between the ages of 35 and 45.
Nearly all patients present with abdominal pain. Recurrent attacks occur at intervals of several weeks or months, often within a few hours or two days of an alcoholic bout.
Pain begins gradually and persists for days or weeks. Pain is located in the epigastrium, right or left sub costal areas or around the umbilicus. Relief may be obtained by crouching forward or leaning forward over a chair.
Weight loss is common due to malnutrition, secondary to pancreatic pain and diabetes mellitus.
Diarrhea is common.
Diabetes mellitus develops in about a fifth of patients.
Steatorrhea (fats in stools) develops in about one third of patients, and may occasionally be the presenting feature.
Jaundice may develop due to obstruction of the common bile duct.
On examination, there may be diffuse tenderness in the upper abdomen and features of malnutrition and weight loss.
Diagnosis of Chronic Pancreatitis
A variety of investigations may be used to confirm the diagnosis of Chronic Pancreatitis. They may be classified into Radiographic and Imaging techniques, which demonstrate the structural changes in the gland and its function, and Metabolic Studies, which indicate whether the function of the gland is inadequate for normal physiological processes.
The investigations that need to be done are as follows:
Stool Test - A 5-day stool collection test to demonstrate steatorrhea (fats in stools).
Liver Function Tests - Raised Serum Alkaline Phosphatase may indicate obstruction of the bile duct.
Glucose Tolerance Test, to demonstrate diabetes mellitus.
Plain X-ray of the abdomen, to detect calcification of the pancreas.
Ultrasound and CT Scan, to demonstrate atrophy and calcification, temporary enlargement in acute attacks, and stricture of common bile duct.
The peer-reviewed published research quoted on this page represents some of the studies done on natural remedies for Pancreatitis. More such studies can be found on pubmed or google scholar. Our doctors participate in or evaluate research from all traditions before formulating our precedent-setting kits. However, the laws on natural medicine vary, from country to country, and we, therefore, make no claims beyond those made by the FDA in your country who is the only authority that can legally make a claim to cure, treat, or mitigate a disease. You are welcome to discuss this research with your doctors. If they truly care about your health they too will take the time to study it with an open mind. You may then take our all natural products for Digestion Health. Biogetica supports you in your right to know and chose and we vow to be with you every step of the way. No one will be turned away from receiving our natural remedies even if they cannot pay.
Antibiotics and analgesics are the most popular US FDA approved medicines for Pancreatitis. Within the USA one must visit a Doctor licensed in their state for the diagnosis, treatment and "cure" of pancreatitis. However, they only help in managing the symptoms and conventional treatments for pancreatitis do not address the root cause of the problem.
Moreover, some patients are unable to tolerate the side effects produced by antibiotics. The most common side effects include allergic reaction (shortness of breath, hives, swelling of lips, face, or tongue, fainting), rash, vomiting, severe watery diarrhea and abdominal cramps, vaginal itching or discharge and white patches on the tongue.
Analgesics also treat the disease only symptomatically and have a fleet of side effects, which vary in severity. The most common ones include stomach upset, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, or headache, hoarseness, swelling, difficulty breathing, hives, itching, and rash.
One must look above and beyond suppressing symptoms and into rejuvenating their pancreas to get well.
Ayurveda and TCM are considered medicine in India and China respectively and the huge populations of both countries tend to appreciate them.
Homeopathy is considered medicine in most lands on the globe. However, in the USA now, its use is limited to over the counter ailments. Europe is more accommodating, however, and Switzerland recently passed a law that insures insurance coverage is provided for those who prefer homeopathic treatment.
Supplements, globally, can only be used and marketed to support the structure and functions of the pancreas and cannot be used to treat any ailment.
Biogetica's approach to healing is based on the following aspects:
1. HEAL THE ENTIRE BEING:
2. LOOK FOR NATURAL SOLUTIONS:
3. APPEAL TO THE BALANCING FORCES INHERENT IN ALL NATURE
4. FROM MEDICATION TO MEDITATION
1. HEAL THE ENTIRE BEING: Biogetica has a unique and comprehensive Holographic model of healing which synthesizes all the traditional natural health systems to simultaneously ease physical, mental, emotional layers of your being.
You, as a living, thinking, feeling, vibrating being, are much more than a collection of inter-related chemical processes. You are life itself. Life can never be reduced to a series of chemical reactions as chemical reactions cannot create life. Every thought, emotion, vibration or action leads to a series of chemical changes in the body. Biogetica recognizes this and balances the ENTIRE BEING, bringing mind, body, and soul into harmony. Treating an ailment on a molecular level alone, seldom has a lasting effect as the untreated social, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic patterns cause the ailment to manifest once again on a physical plane. Holistic healing is necessary for lasting relief. Biogetica, therefore, uses Resonance Homeopathic to harmonize the entire being; flower essences to attune the mind; Ayurvedic, Tibetan, and Chinese herbs to balance the energetic and the physiological manifestation of the five elements; and nutraceuticals to coordinate cellular nutrition.
2. LOOK FOR NATURAL SOLUTIONS: Our bodies are made of and supported by nature and therefore can only be healed by nature in the long term. Chemicals are often necessary for immediate change in an acute situation but tend to do the body more harm than good in the long run. Hence, Biogetica's Doctors are dedicated to providing natural solutions that are supported by evidence and prior use. To us, the argument is fairly obvious: One would use wood to fix a desk made of wood or metal to fix a car made of metal, so why use chemicals to fix a body made of nature?
Nature has blessed the Earth with natural remedies and healing mechanisms. It would be wise not to ignore them. The intelligence of nature is much greater than that of man. Unfortunately, man still focuses on chemical medicines, as they can be patented and sold for huge profits. Allopathic attempts to treat chronic ailments by interfering directly with the chemical processes using man-made substances have essentially been a failure. We claim to be cracking the gene code, but we still can't cure a cold with man-made substances!!! Homeopathic and Naturopathic methods are never studied and verified by governing bodies, as there is no one who will spend millions obtaining an approval on herbs, knowing that they cannot be patented and sold exclusively by them.
3. APPEAL TO THE BALANCING FORCES INHERENT IN ALL NATURE: Life cannot be recreated with chemical interactions and there is much more to life than molecular interactions. Our bodies are the most advanced pharmacies on the planet and millions of functions happen each minute with astounding precision. Biogetica therapies are designed to appeal to the balancing forces apparent in all nature by reminding and stimulating the body towards a certain function. The nutraceuticals in our kits provide specific nutrition for a function, the herbs in our kits balance the terrain of the body so that it is able to perform that function and the resonance homeopathies are designed to remind the body to be in resonance with that very function.
4. FROM MEDICATION TO MEDITATION: Good health and freedom involve every aspect of our being including diet, lifestyle, exercise, emotional states, thoughts and energetic patterns. Biogetica Drs have therefore designed diet, nutrition, exercise, and meditation protocols specific to various life situations. We encourage you to actively partake in these for best results.
Biogetica's supplementary natural products predominantly contain Resonance Homeopathic formulations. The core of these protocols is homeopathic sarcodes. As per classical homeopathy, sarcodes are believed to remind body of specific optimal functions. The kits here have sarcodes of pituitary, adrenals, dopamine and other nerve tissues. These sarcodes may coax nervous and endocrine system to function optimally when concerned with loss of muscular coordination, weakening memory and altered glandular secretions. **
These supplementary natural products are meant to complement conventional treatments. They should not be considered as a replacement for medical advice and treatment. They are not meant to diagnose, mitigate, prevent, cure or treat any disease. **
