How we treat Chronic Pancreatitis?
Chronic Pancreatitis is treated at HimVeda with herbal medicine and a strict dietary regimen. Panchakarma procedures are not done as most of the times the condition of the patient does not allow this. Hence the patients will not be admitted. Money and time can thus be saved as the diet can be followed at home.
Duration of treatment varies from 10-12 months. No matter what the condition, improvement will be seen in first to second month. Digestion will improve and the need for digestive enzymes is reduced and is eventually stopped.
As far as pain is concerned, the frequency and intensity slowly comes down over a period of few weeks. There is a chance of relapse of symptoms during the treatment if patient does not comply with dietary instructions.
Acute cases are also taken up and will slowly recover. If the pain comes within 1-2 days of starting the medicine, then the patient might have to take allopathic medicine. Once the effects of our medicine have set in there is less chance of recurrence of pain.
Our medicines vary from patient to patient, depending on the age, body constitution and disease status. All these aspects are assessed by the doctor before deciding the treatment. The aim of the treatment is to balance air and fire elements.
We have treated a wide range of cases of chronic Pancreatitis including:
- Autoimmune condition in kids
- Necrotising varieties
- Pancreatitis with splenomegaly, hepatomegaly and Portal Hypertension
We cannot claim to recover the dead part but function is successfully restored with our medicines.
