A Natural Therapy For Pancreatic Health

A Brief History of Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water

Karlovy Vary water, made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt, is a safe and powerful natural remedy for chronic pancreatitis.

Most Americans, including medical professionals, may be surprised to learn that for centuries European doctors have used a simple complementary alternative therapy for treating chronic disorders such as pancreatitis – Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water. This special “magical” water is not just a pleasant beverage that Europeans drink when they are thirsty. Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water is widely used throughout Europe to heal a range of chronic disorders, as well as for maintaining good health.

One hundred years ago, before the advent of modern medicine, Karlovy Vary Water was a primary European method used to treat gout, diabetes, obesity, stomach ulcers, liver problems and pancreatic disease. Moreover, today the mineral water continues to serve an important niche in European alternative medicine. This health-giving mineral water is naturally produced from hot springs in the town of Karlovy Vary in Czech Republic.

Scientists and scholars began to research the unusual mineral content of Karlovy Vary water over 500 years ago. Hundreds of articles and clinical texts have been written which describe the curative nature of the spring’s waters on both humans and animals. In essence, Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water is the ultimate unique mineral supplement.

In the past, the European upper classes were able to have barrels of the Karlovy Vary Water shipped to them at great expense. It wasn’t until 1764, when an inexpensive evaporative method was perfected, that the therapeutic benefits of the mineral waters could be shipped virtually anywhere in the world in the form of a mineral salt. Czech doctors tested the Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Salt against the original Karlovy Vary mineral waters and determined that they had the same healing properties.

What is the Pancreas?

To understand how Karlovy Vary water helps heal the pancreas, it is important to be familiar with the form and function of the pancreas.

The pancreas is a tube-shaped gland that is necessary for proper digestion. It is located behind the stomach and stretches across the back of the abdomen, where it lies looped within the duodenum. The duodenum is the first small part of the small intestine.

The pancreas secretes hormones, such as insulin, into the bloodstream. It also aids in digestion by producing digestive enzymes. The digestive enzymes move through the pancreas via a network of small ducts. These small ducts eventually meet up to form the main pancreatic duct. The main pancreatic duct merges with the common bile duct, which carries bile from the liver and the gallbladder.

The two ducts, plus the digestive enzymes and bile that they carry, meet at a small cavity which controls the flow of digestive juices into the duodenum. This small cavity uses a muscle valve called the Sphincter of Oddi, which opens and closes to regulate the amount of digestive juices that can go through it at one time.

What is Pancreatitis?

If the Sphincter of Oddi muscle valve has a spasm or a blockage then the flow of digestive juices to the duodenum and small intestine slows or stops completely. Enzymatic fluid becomes trapped and starts to back up in the small cavity. Pressure increases as the fluid builds up, forcing the powerful mixture of enzymes and bile to move backwards through the pancreatic duct and into the pancreas.

Trapped inside the pancreas, the enzymes begin to digest their own pancreatic cells. This process, called pancreatitis, causes pain, inflammation, congestion, cysts, and the eventual death of the affected pancreatic tissue.

Pancreatitis begins as an acute disease, or a disease that lasts for a short time. However, if the conditions that caused the original attack of acute pancreatitis are not resolved, then the pancreatitis symptoms can become chronic, or ongoing.

There are many reasons that the Sphincter of Oddi may malfunction and give rise to pancreatitis. The flow of fluid may be blocked by small or large gallbladder stones or the valve may become blocked by abnormal bile which is too thick to move through the opening. Trauma to the bile ducts from surgery or general inflammation can also cause blockage of the Sphincter of Oddi. The Sphincter of Oddi is also prone to spasms, which can be caused by alcohol consumption, smoking, fatty meals, and stress.

How does Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt heal the Pancreas?

The pH of pancreatic fluid is alkaline because digestive enzymes can only become active in an alkaline setting. To maintain proper alkaline conditions, the pancreas must use a lot of minerals and bicarbonates. Therefore, the pancreas normally stockpiles a large amount of these trace minerals and bicarbonates. But both the pancreas and its pancreatic fluids lose their alkalinity when the whole body is getting too acidic. The loss of alkalinity can cause valve blockages and spasms in the Sphincter of Oddi.

Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water contains a complex and beneficial composition of minerals and bicarbonates, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, sulfates, chlorides, bicarbonates. It also contains necessary trace minerals, including cobalt, zinc, selenium, copper, lithium, and more. Necessary components of pancreatic fluids, these minerals and bicarbonates enhance the flow and production of the pancreatic fluids, digestive pancreatic enzymes and decrease the pressure inside the pancreas by opening the Sphincter of Oddi. The healing mineral water prepared from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt can naturally increase the production end release of digestive pancreatic enzymes in healthy and sick people. It is very difficult to do all these above by the conventional medicine.

Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water also helps the duodenum to manufacture and release digestive hormones, as well as regulates digestion in the liver and gastrointestinal tract. These digestive hormones let the pancreas know the amount of bicarbonates and enzymes that will be needed for digesting starches, sugars, lipids, and proteins that will be arriving in the duodenum en route from the stomach.

Karlovy Vary water made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt has been used for centuries by generations of Europeans as a natural, non-drug approach to treating chronic pancreatitis.

Peter Melamed, Ph.D. received his medical education first as a registered nurse and then as a medical doctor in Russia. He took specialized training in anesthesiology, intensive care, and internal medicine. Working as a physician he became interested in holistic healing through his clinical experience with herbs, acupuncture, healing mineral water and internal cleansing. He was granted a license to practice acupuncture in Russia in 1978, and from that time he combined conventional Western medical treatment with herbs, acupuncture, and other non-drug healing therapies.
In 1975, Peter Melamed established Biotherapy as a natural holistic approach to healing. Biotherapy combines the wisdom of traditional Russian folk medicine, ancient Oriental medical therapies, and European naturopathy with cutting-edge Western technology.
After immigrating to the USA and passing all the exams Peter Melamed succeeded in starting up a private practice in 1996 at the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area. Get more info at
