Raw vegg vs Vegg juice for gastritis patient

Posted , 2 users are following.


I've been diagnosed chronic gastritis and my main symptom is nightmarish constant nausea, unfortunately.

Everyone says that raw veggies irritate stomach and gastritis sufferers must stay away from them.

So that means, should I stay away from even raw leafy salads? Are vegetable juices better option for me?

Any idea?

By the way, I mainly eat rye bread, white/brown rice, whole wheat pasta and potato/sweet potato as carb source,

My protein sources are, chicken and turkey breast, tuna, beans, lentils

And my fat source is, very litte amount of pumpkin seeds.

Any wrong with my gastritis diet?

Thank you.

    Rye bread causes more acid for me, as does wholemeal,  beans, seeds and lentils. Theres a website which shows which vegtables are acidic and which are alkaline - go more for the latter to make juices. I quess cooked veg digest easier, and too much raw salad needs more gastric acid to break it down. Why not eat them cooked or eat soups? I find live yoghurt good, and finely chopped garlic mixed with yogurt helpful for stomach pains. Ginger boiled, and in warm water with honey

      Thanks for reply.

      Rye/multi grain bread seems ok for me. Beans and lentils are also ok.

      I notice that lots of fruits & veggies cause nausea/irritate my stomach. I can eat banana and apples but berries always be problematic.

      To be honest, I was never vegg-lover. And in this case, raw veggies irritate my stomach and this is why ask can I drink vegg juice instead of cook them.

      By the way, I didn't try ginger but ginger tea gave me a pain.

    Got one more question.

    Which one is better for gastritis patient, brown rice or white rice?

      I think brown rice is better for nutrition, white better for less acid.

      I would have thought veg jiuce is better; fruit juices with citric acid  like berries and oranges.....or tomato, not so good. I read pineapple is ok.

      Aloe Vera jiuce/capsules can be used for stomach healing. maybe your stomach lining is damaged, but know doubt you've had all he tests. Some people use manuka honey; as with aloe vera, I know it heals wounds outside the body.

      Balancing your body with alkalines has been touted as a cure, and (non acidic) recipes can be found online.

    I copied this from dr oz website of foods which bring acid :                              Olive oil (neutral)

    Whole milk


    Lentils, boiled

    White bread

    Whole-wheat cooked spaghetti

    Plain bagel

    Peanuts, dry-roasted


    Hot dog



    Lean beef

    Wild cooked trout

    Whole egg, hard boiled


    Brown rice

    Cooked salmon

    White canned tuna fish


    Canned sardines

    Cooked turkey bacon

    American/cheddar cheese

    Parmesan cheese (most acid-producing)

    He writes another list of alkaline foods, and veggies/fruits  which you might make into jiuce

    Brown rice seems less acidic than white rice.

    I create my own gastritis diet and I'm wondering what you guys think about it,

    Pumpernickel (german bread), egg whites

    Rice, chicken

    And vegg juices between meals, mainly carrot and will add spinach, cucumbers, parsley, sometimes cucumbers

    No dairy except goat milk kefir

    No fruits except banana, maybe pear (rarely)

    No herbal teas except chamomile tea (green and ginger tea gave me a pain)

    Any wrong with this?

    Things gone weird.

    My breakfast was 4 slices of multigrain bread with 6 egg whites and it was quite trouble-free.

    I eat chicken breast and rice gruel after my workout and it caused slightly nausea.

    I drink carrot juice but it seems vegg juices also irritate my stomach. It caused harsh nausea.

    And now I eat brown rice with lentils and it seems ok. But still feel nauseous due to vegg juice, damn.

    What should I do? Many fruits except banana, irritate my stomach. Most of veggies also irritate it, raw or vegg juice formed, does not matter.

    Alkaline foods are really matter for healing in this case?
