This article focuses on how the Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water helps treat pancreatic diseases. The properties of the Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water are completely unknown by the American public and medical professionals. Most North Americans tend to think of mineral water as something to drink either as a snack or with meals. Yet, Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water is not just something to drink when thirsty. This “magical” water contains healing properties for a variety of chronic disorders, as well as for health maintenance.
European doctors and scientists have used this water for centuries. 100 years ago, Karlovy Vary Water was the only possible way to treat diabetes, obesity, gout, stomach ulcers, pancreatic diseases and liver problems. Today it continues to serve as a very important complementary alternative therapy for healing these chronic disorders.
There is no other mineral supplement in the world like Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water. Research on this water began over 500 years ago. Since then, hundreds of clinical texts and articles have been published describing the positive effects of the water on both animals and humans.
Karlovy Vary water was found to be so beneficial that work was done to manufacture the salt from the evaporated thermal spring water. In 1764, an inexpensive method was discovered that made it possible to distribute the water throughout the world. Czech doctors determined that the water manufactured from the genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt had identical healing properties as the spring.
To understand the healing action of this water on pancreatic diseases one needs to understand the pancreas structure and function.
The pancreas is an elongated and tapered gland that lies across the back of the abdomen behind the stomach in the loop of the duodenum. It secretes digestive enzymes into the duodenum and hormones, such as insulin, into the blood stream.
The pancreatic cells secrete digestive enzymes into a net of ducts that meet to form the main pancreatic duct. This duct merges the common bile duct (which carries bile from the gallbladder) and liver to form a small cavity that opens into the duodenum. The opening has a muscle valve called the Sphincter of Oddi that controls secretions from the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder into the duodenum of the small intestine.
Spasms or valve blockages may cause a back up of the pancreatic fluids, thus, increasing the pancreatic duct pressure. Trapped inside, the pancreas digestive enzymes start to digest their own pancreatic cells causing congestion, inflammation, pain, cysts and finally death of the pancreatic tissue.
Pancreatitis may develop at first in acute and then in chronic conditions. Solid, difficult to eliminate bile, small and large gallbladder stones, inflammation and trauma of bile ducts during surgery can cause blockage of the Sphincter of Oddi.
Valve spasms can also occur due to stress, fatty meals, alcohol consumption and smoking.
The pH of the pancreatic fluid is alkaline due to the fact that the digestive enzymes become active only in an alkaline environment. Normally the pancreatic fluid contains a large amount of minerals and bicarbonates to keep the alkaline condition. When the pancreas is congested, inflamed or damaged, the fluids lose their alkalinity, thereby causing valve spasms and blockages.
Used for centuries by generations of Europeans, Karlovy Vary water made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt has been popular in Europe as a natural approach to Chronic Pancreatitis. Positive benefits of the Karlovy Vary water are brought about by a beneficial complex composition of potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, sulfates, bicarbonates, chlorides, and a lot of trace minerals such as zinc, cobalt, selenium, lithium, copper and more.
According to European doctors, the most important action of the water is to enhance production and flow of bile, open the Sphincter of Oddi and decrease pressure inside the pancreas. Additionally, the Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water supplies the pancreas with minerals and bicarbonates, the main ingredients of the pancreatic fluids. The water promotes the manufacture and release of digestive hormones in the duodenum and regulates the digestive process in the gastrointestinal tract and liver. The digestive hormones signal to the pancreas the amount of enzymes and bicarbonate that will be needed to digest protein, sugars, starches, and lipids arriving from the stomach into the duodenum.
Karlovy Vary water made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt is available in US, and is a safe and effective non-drug alternative remedy for chronic pancreatitis.
