What is Pancreatitis?

The Pancreas

The pancreas is a gland organ that is located in the abdomen, behind the stomach and below the rib­cage. It is part of the digestive system and produces important enzymes and hormones that help in breaking down food. It is both an exocrine and an endocrine organ. Enzymes, or digestive juices, produced by the pancreas are secreted into the small intestine to further break down food after it has left the stomach. The gland also produces the hormone insulin and se­cretes it into the bloodstream in order to regulate the body's glucose or sugar level.

Pancreatitis refers to the inflammation of the pancreas. It results from auto-digestion of pancreatic tissues by its own enzymes.


Signs and symptoms of Pancreatitis include epigastric pain, vomiting, nausea, steatorrhea and weight loss. Associated symptoms of the disease include flatulence, bloating, poor blood sugar control, fatigue, back pain and anemia.


Diagnosis of the disease is made by a competent gastroenterologist based on history and clinical symptoms of the patient along with pathological and radiological tests.


Although the disease has no established cause, various causes have been indicated for its occurrence, including: 

  • Gallstones

  • Heavy Alcohol Use

  • Genetic disorders of Pancreas

  • Certain medicines 

Other causes include infections, such as viral or parasitic, abdominal injury, pancreatic cancer, having a procedure called endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to treat another condition or pancreas divisum. 

Factors responsible for Chronic Pancreatitis are classified as Toxins, Idiopathic, Genetic, Autoimmune, Recurrent Acute attacks and Obstruction of pancreatic ducts (TIGAR-O factors).

However, idiopathic pancreatitis, the cause of which remains unknown, is one of the most common forms of pancreatitis. 

Herbal Treatment



Ayurvedic treatment for Pancreatitis is a one year long regime of regulated diet, lifestyle and a com­bination of Ayurvedic formulations. This includes initial three weeks inhouse treatment under the su­pervision of the treating physician. Later, the treatment is continued following the prescribed diet and lifestyle along with medicines. 


A daily diet comprising of 1800-2400 calories divided into three meals and three snacks is advised. The diet should be rich in protein and dairy products. Consumption of tea, coffee, aerated drinks, refined flour, onion, garlic, tomato, packaged or reheated food items is refrained. 


The patients are advised eight hours of undisturbed sleep at night. Physical and mental exertion should be avoided, especially during the initial four months.


The main Ayurvedic formulation prescribed is Amar. It should be taken thrice a day during meals. Other supportive medicines are also prescribed based on individual symptoms of patients.
