Chronic Pancreatitis – Spiritual Meaning, Causes and Healing

Chronic Pancreatitis – Spiritual Meaning, Causes and Healing

The pancreas is in the upper tummy and lies behind the stomach and intestines. It secretes enzymes that help you digest food and regulates how your body breaks down sugars.

It has an exocrine function because it releases juices into ducts, and it has an endocrine function because it releases juices directly into the bloodstream.

Chronic pancreatitis is the progressive disorder linked with the destruction of the pancreas. Individuals with chronic pancreatitis can have permanent damage to their pancreas.

Western countries have estimated an annual incidence rate of 5-12/100,000 individuals who will develop the disorder.

Chronic pancreatitis is more common in men and it usually develops in individuals between 30 and 40 years of age.

Symptoms

  • vomiting or nausea;
  • fatty or oily stools;
  • diarrhea;
  • some patients suffer constant abdominal pain;
  • chronic weight loss.

Causes

Alcohol Abuse

Approximately 70% of cases are associated with alcohol consumption. According to the National Health Service, UK, long-term alcoholic misuse that usually causes this disease consists of about 10 to 15 years of 10 units of alcohol daily or more.

Autoimmune Conditions

This happens when the body’s immune system attacks its own body. Some common diseases which are generally considered autoimmune include:

  • systemic lupus erythematosus;
  • rheumatoid arthritis;
  • psoriasis;
  • multiple sclerosis;
  • inflammatory bowel disease;
  • Graves’ disease;
  • diabetes mellitus type 1;

Spiritual Causes of Chronic Pancreatitis

The pancreas is related to the aspects of intellect, obsession or mental fixation with perfectionism.

In addition, it represents your capacity to digest the sweetness of life. Also, it is known to strongly impact the genital system.

Indirectly, it may have a small influence on the problems that can occur over the central part of the body.

The pancreas is governed by the 3rd chakra. This chakra is sometimes called the solar plexus chakra. It is located along your spine about 2 to 3 inches above your belly button.

When the 3rd chakra is weak, we live in a place of insecurity and relate to the world from our ego.

According to some spiritual teachers, the projections of the ego are influenced by this organ. Strong and healthy solar plexus chakra reflects the capacity to move forward in life with power and confidence.

Prevention

Eat A Low-Fat Diet

Diet plays a major role in preventing and recovering from pancreatitis.

Patients with this condition need to be careful about the amount of fat (animal or vegetable) they consume because their pancreas function has become compromised.

Some studies suggest that increasing your intake of antioxidants (found in green vegetables, legumes, and fruits) may help protect against this disease or alleviate symptoms of the condition.

Stop Drinking Alcohol

According to statistics, about 7 out of 10 cases of CP are due to long-term heavy drinking.

Giving up drinking will help prevent further damage to the pancreas.

Moreover, it will also contribute notably towards relieving the pain. Some individuals may need professional help to quit alcohol.

Smokings

It may increase your chance of having pancreatitis. In people with this condition, smoking also increases the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
