    Hi Shaexo2000,

    It's a new thing to know, that you were able to get relief from gastritis by chewing gum.

    By the way, back pain was the first thing happened to me with gastritis. For many months I was asking doctors for back pain treatment. Then finally I realized it was gastritis, not back pain. The pain was felt in the back mainly because stomach lies in between, and you get confused with back pain.

    I have heard about Mastic gum and Ibarogast for gastritis. Check google.

    Green Tea and Chamomile tea can help. A member here got relief through Chamomile tea.

    Very important things in gastritis:

    1. Save yourself from anxiety stress and overthinking. You can start going for 30 minutes morning walk , and 15 mins walk after every meal.
    2. Walking and exercising may not solve bacterial infection, but it may help you to reduce the symptoms or atleast not getting new problems in addition.

    Don't eat before going to bed; this will make your symptoms worse. Instead, try milk which soothes your stomach and is light. There is no one size fits all foods for gastritis because everyone has different triggers. Try a food diary to see shat foods irritate your stomach and avoid anything, rich, fatty or spicy.

      Shaexo, with your symptoms it probably is a good idea for you NOT to eat just before going to bed . That might be easier said than done, but if you have to make it a fruit. As far as what to eat is hard to say,it's easier/more like what to avoid or cut back on:

      rich, fatty, or spicy foods and chewing gum <these are all not good for you> Sorry. Good luck.
