To stimulate pancreatic secretions and combat pancreatitis in uncomplicated phases, plants with collagen, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and regenerative properties are recommended. Pancreatitis is a serious condition of the pancreas, caused by chronic alcoholism, hepato-biliary diseases, penetrating gastrointestinal ulcers, some infectious diseases, blood circulation disorders, abdominal trauma with external compressions, eating with fatty meals loaded with animal fats, overuse of medication.
Evolution of pancreatitis can be very dangerous and requires mandatory hospitalization, even at the intensive care unit, to avoid severe complications. Phytotherapeutic treatments are in internal use and require infusions: from aniseed or herba seeds, taken before meals; plant mixtures with seeds – anise, cumin and dill, mint leaves and live nettle, dandelion herb, horsetail and St. John’s wort, beans, valerian and obligean roots.
The duration of treatment is two consecutive months, with repetition two to three times a year.
Very effective in stimulating pancreatic secretions is decoction of lichen stone herb, plus a sodium bicarbonate tip and three cups a day, 30 minutes before main meals.
In external use, on the area of the palm and abdomen, it is anointed with the yolk of the marigold and then put a cataplasm with herba crushed by the tail of the crayfish.
