Unfortunately, most people know next to nothing about the pancreas or pancreatic enzymes. They need to be made aware of their importance for digestion and health. Much attention is paid to the liver, gallbladder, and colon; the pancreas is a forgotten organ.
Many people are aware of the role of the pancreas in the development of diabetes. What they don’t know, however, is that the pancreas and pancreatic enzymes break down food into a digestible form that is beneficial to the body. Without adequate digestion, good health is impossible. Even the healthiest diet won’t make much difference if the pancreas can’t produce the right amount of high-quality digestive enzymes to break down food for optimal body function.
If we know the causes of low pancreatic function, we can focus on helping this vital organ work properly. Conditions that cause the pancreas to work improperly are:
- Disorders of the nervous system, stress, anxiety, “eating on the go,” etc.
- Problems with producing and releasing the digestive hormones secretin and cholecystokinin.
- Deficiency of minerals, trace elements, bicarbonates, and vitamins
- Severe acidosis – the acidity of the whole body
- Dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrowth, SIBO- small intestine bacterial overgrowth)
- Toxic substances inside and outside the body
- •Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
- Fatty pancreas
- Retention of pancreatic juice after obstruction of the pancreatic duct (gallstones, inflammation, cancer, parasites)
- Trauma, surgery, cancer, etc.
Many of these problems overlap and can cause anything from latent pancreatic insufficiency to the complete shutdown of this vital organ. This is why the symptoms of pancreatic insufficiency are so varied.
Millions of Americans suffer from gastrointestinal disorders, including abdominal pain, cramps, gas, bloating, malnutrition, bowel problems, foul-smelling stools, etc. Many of them have a pancreatic deficiency and do not realize it.
Those suffering from this disease can eat healthily. Still, if the body does not use the nutrients from food, the body literally starves. Without proper amounts of quality pancreatic digestive enzymes, people suffer from deficiencies in essential minerals, trace elements, and vitamins. They are constantly tired, develop chronic diseases, and age prematurely. At worst, they develop pancreatic cancer.
Is there a way to increase the function of our pancreas to help produce more good quality pancreatic digestive enzymes? Yes, we can. Read more here: https://www.biotherapy-clinic.com/category/pancreatic-disorders
