      Everyone is different with gastritis.  It is very much trial and error to find a diet that suits you.  It depends on your own individual triggers It can come and go in periods of flare up or remission.  Milk can help to settle your stomach.

      Maybe see a dietician for advice on what best to eat.

    Have they found the cause of your gastritis and how did it start?  Are you having any other physical or psychological symptoms that began around the same time?  That could be a clue.

      I assume you've been tested for the gastritis/ulcer bacteria H pylori.  DGL [licorice root], Pepto bismol, Ginger, Garlic, and Flavones are some supplements used to help kill the bacteria if you don't want to take antibiotics, although it's very tough and difficult to eradicate.  DGL, Flavones, and Marshmallow root can help heal the gastric mucosa even if you're not infected with H pylori.

    I tried zinc carnosine.  I thought at first it was helping but later started to cause problems.  Tried pine nut oil, l glutamine, DGL, etc.  Most are a waste of money.  A PPI, carafate, diet, and patience are the keys to getting healed.  Gastritis can take anywhere from 1-3 months for mild gastritis to heal to 6+ months for more severe forms of gastritis to heal.  But for most, it does heal.

      Hello, I am curious to know how long were you on PPI's for and after you stopped did it cause a rebound effect where you experienced more acid reflux? Thank you
