Pancreatitis is the acute or chronic inflammatory condition affecting the Pancreas gland. The Pancreas is a gland that is situated behind the stomach and it produces enzymes that help in digestion and hormones that help to regulate the way our body processes Glucose. So any inflammatory conditions to the Pancreas can trigger a collapse in the digestive mechanism as well as Glucose synthesis. It is very important to detect and treat Pancreatitis as soon as possible otherwise it may lead to many complications and eventually to death. Mild cases of pancreatitis relieve with treatment but chronic cases lead to life-threatening conditions. So, let’s know about effective diet, herbs, and home remedies for pancreatitis Ayurvedic treatment.


As per Ayurvedic textbooks, based on signs and symptoms, Pancreatitis can be correlated to Agnyasaya shotha. Acharyas like Vagbhata, Susrutha, and Charaka mentioned about Agnyasaya shotha along with its treatment protocols.
