The pancreas can get very complicated as it can create serious conditions that I am not in a position to deal with. However, remember that the pancreas controls our sugars and if you are finding yourself craving sugars or carbohydrates more than you should, there are some things you can do to help with this condition. Balancing a proper diet is the most important way to heal this body part.
The foods to avoid to heal the Pancreas
Eliminate white refined sugars and honey from your diet. Instead replace with the good sugars...switch to more complex sugars including pure maple syrup, barley malt, rice malt, molasses, sucanat, organic pure cane juice crystals or stevia. Your pancreas will thank you. Decrease carbohydrates to one or two per day and increase proteins like beans, nuts & seeds as well as chicken, turkey or fish. Protein in the form of goat or sheep milk products such as cheeses, yogurts or milks is very good for this body type. Limit your fruit intake to two per day, preferably once in the morning and once at night. Eat lots and lots of fresh vegetables. This is essential to feeling full and not feeling as though your are missing something in life. Use only high quality oils such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil. If you have a hard time gaining weight, using a protein drink with soy milk or goat milk can also help.
Herbs & supplements that are beneficial to the Pancreas
Chromium seems to be the product of choice for the pancreas. You can also find sugar craver's formulas that seem to work very well for many people who have uncontrollable cravings for sugars and carbohydrates.
Physical Symptoms of Pancreas Imbalance
Besides sugar cravings, those with a pancreas imbalance also may crave carbohydrates. Sugar imbalances can create two different body types… one that stores and becomes obese; another that is tall and lanky looking, and finds it hard to put weight on.
Negative emotions that aggravate the Pancreas
The pancreas is affected by the same emotions as the bladder and kidneys, namely disappointments, which is why one will affect the other. More specifically, this body part holds the emotion of disappointment with other's choices. The lesson comes from learning to accept with no expectations. This is one of our hardest lessons in life. But when you learn to balance this energy from disappointment to acceptance, you will find that everything that you do get in life will be given as a gift. That which we receive that has not expectation attached to it becomes pure joy and appreciation.
For those with sugar cravings, the Agrimony flower can help balance this emotional dysfunction.
Vervain can also be useful for a person who handles situations with stress and tension, thereby using sugars or carbohydrates as a calming device.
