So for some reason you think you need a pancreas
cleanse. Hi, my name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Physical Medicine and
Human Performance Specialist. I want to talk to you just briefly about the pancreas and
some things that you can do for pancreatic health. The pancreas is an organ of digestion.
It produces insulin and many enzymes that are going to help you to metabolize your food
better and convert glucose into usable, usable blood sugar and back and forth with working
with the liver. The pancreas isn't something that necessarily needs to be cleansed but
it does need to be cared for. Limiting the amounts of very, very sugary foods that you're
going to eat or doing them in very small dose is it's going to help with that and also limiting
the quantity of the meal that you eat. All those things can make the pancreas produce
too much insulin that's going to end up throwing it into a little bit of imbalance, essentially
abusing the pancreas. So what the pancreas likes to do is it likes to store insulin for
production so it can convert glucose and slowly release it when it's needed throughout the
day, instead of releasing it in this huge burst.
So the best thing that you can do for
is make sure that you eat often. So say about every three hours you get something in. Limit
really simple sugars or really simple carbohydrates and also, as well as with anything else, drinking
plenty of water, it's going to help the digestive system as well. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor
