    Hi Senthil,

    I just came across one Dr. Deoshlok Sharma while surfing the internet who claims to have cured a patient with pancreatitis. While reading the details it appeared to be a case of acute pancreatitis. I am still looking for a homoeo cure of chronic pancreatitis. Nevertheless, the contact details of Dr. Sharma as available in the article is The Homoeo World, 87A, Sarat Bose Road, Kolkata-26. Ph-(033)24860352. Please check the antecedents…..all the best.
