Home remedies for Oily bowel movement

Analyzing a patient's stool is widely considered to be one of the best methods of diagnosing the conditions that a person suffers from. Stool analysis usually give a very clear indication of the various types of medical complications that the individual is suffering from. However, simply noticing that your stool is rather oily or greasy does not provide enough information to identify the cause because of the fact that there are a number of medical conditions that reflect this symptom. There is also the chance that the excessive oil in the stool is nothing more than the excessive ingestion of oily or fatty foods. It is important though that you visit your family doctor for an opinion because some of the conditions that show the symptom of oily stools can be serious such as pancreatic cancer. It is also important to keep in mind the fact that having some amount of grease or oil in the stool will only serve to make the bowel movement easier because of the natural lubricants already present. One of the most common medical complications that are characterized by oily stool is pancreatitis and is essentially the inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreas is the organ that is responsible for the production of digestive enzymes and release of hormones such as glucogen and insulin. Studies have shown that about eighty percent of all cases of pancreatitis are the result of either excessive alcohol consumption or the presence of gallstones. Apart from the greasy stool, some of the other symptoms of the condition include a severe pain in the upper abdomen. This pain could last for a significantly long time, sometimes as much as a couple of days. The patient is also likely to experience nausea, vomiting, excessive gas, muscle aches and hypertension when affected by the condition.

Panreatitis is a common condition all over the world and a number of effective and easy to prepare home remedies have been developed to treat the condition. These help to provide some amount of relief to the sufferers of the condition. For example, dandelion is known to stimulate the bile production while also improving the health of the pancreas - which is essentially what is required. The extraction of the oil from an olive leaf will serve as an anti inflammatory agent and is very helpful if you suffer from an infection. Your diet will also require a little tinkering and eating a diet low in fat and sugar is a very important part of the recovery process.
