How Alternative Medicine Can Help With Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction

The Sphincter of Oddi, named after Ruggero Oddi, an Italian anatomist who described this structure in 1887, is the muscle valve that regulates the flow of bile and pancreatic juice into the duodenum (beginning of the small intestine). Regulation of the Sphincter of Oddi is accomplished through the nervous system and the blood by special messengers- digestive hormones.

If there is no food in the intestine, the Sphincter of Oddi valve remains closed. Bile is retained in the gallbladder and pancreatic juice is retained in the pancreas. Spasms or blockage of this valve may cause bile and pancreatic juice to back up.

The World-wide Health Organization has recognized Lanjarón like one of the places of more longevity of the planet. It is indeed the quality of its waters – together with the climate, the pure mountain air and the Mediterranean diet – allowing many of its citizens to live more than one hundred years. With a population of 5.000, 50 of them are more than 90 years old, and 150 more than 80 years old.

Lanjarón is a municipality and village in the Alpujarras area in the province of Granada in Andalusia, Spain.

It has a ruined castle and chalybeate baths. It is most famous, however, for the bottled water produced in the town. This was the first bottled water company in the whole of Spain and provides water to the whole of the peninsula.
