Gastritis - Anyone have any positive encouragement?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Dear all

Having read an abundance of really depressing posts that really don't help with positivity in trying to cope with reflux gastritis, I wondered if anyone had anything positive to say regarding tips for managing, whether the symptoms change along the way (mine have), etc

    Hi , yeah gastritis is terrible to deal with , some severe , some mild , still uncomfortable . Here are some tips how to feel better if not cure , in some folks drinking aloe vera juice , drink ginger tea , drink rice milk , a bland diet using coconut oil have been cured , either way it helps . Also prilosec OTC can help symptoms .. Best wishes to you

    There are anti-biotics available for colitis by prescription. Ask your doctor.

    Don't try to read through internet comments and try to diagnose the disease or problem yourself. It will always give you depression. Internet is the right place to diagnose a problem. A Doctor your trust can only help you the best. However you can use internet, read comments and discuss if someone has got a positive review about a medicine or cure.

    I understand gastritis can be frustrating, and I got it for 2 years because of hpylori. Fortunately I am ok now. I got it sorted out by antibiotics prescribed by my doctor.

    If you have infection the change in habits won't help unless the infection is cured. Once that's done, you can concentrate on your food and lifestyle habits to get gastritis under control.

    If it's happening because of acidity or food, then you should try atleast 3-4 glass of water in morning as habit. Try it if it may help.

    Hi Joanne

    The main positive aspect to Gastritis is that is does go!! but you do need to know what are the triggers, ie stress, smoking, chocolate, coffee etc etc, managing your lifestyle/diet will really help and hopefully it will occur less๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
