Treating Gastritis with Natural Ayurvedic Treatment
Gastritis is irritation, inflammation, or erosion of the stomach lining. The inflammation in gastritis is mostly associated with the same bacterium that is responsible for causing most stomach ulcers.

The condition is caused by various factors, including alcohol, abdominal pain, infection, indigestion, nausea, particular medications, feeling full, and some allergic and immune conditions.

Gastritis can be of two types: Acute (that lasts for a day or two) or Chronic (that causes loss of appetite on a long-term basis or nausea). In many cases, people don't experience any symptoms. In other words, they are asymptomatic.

Acute gastritis can result in abdominal pain and stomach swelling but usually does not last for more than two days. Chronic gastritis, on the other hand, lasts for a longer duration. People who have this condition may not realize it because of the symptoms that may appear dull and not severe, unlike acute gastritis, where the symptoms can be painful.

Symptoms
The signs and symptoms of gastritis include:
  • Nausea
  • Hiccups
  • Discomfort in the stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Burning sensation or pain in the upper abdomen that may get better or worsen with eating.
  • Indigestion
  • Loss of appetite
  • Bloating in the stomach
  • A feeling of fullness post eating
  • Black, tarry stools
People who do not experience any gastritis symptom are asymptomatic. The condition can be detected in them while diagnosing other diseases or during a physical examination.

Diagnosis

In most cases, the presence of an ulcer is easily detected after going through the patient’s medical history and physical examination. However, patients are also asked to undergo one of these following tests to narrow down the exact cause.
  • X-ray of the Upper Digestive System
  • X-ray of the upper digestive system is known as barium swallow or upper GI series and captures the pictures of your esophagus, small intestines, and the stomach lining to look for redness and inflammation. To detect the ulcer more quickly, your doctor will ask you to swallow white, metallic liquid consisting of barium that coats your digestive system.
  • H. Pylori Test
  • You may be asked to go through particular tests to determine the presence of the bacterium H. pylori. The type of test that you undergo depends upon the severity of your condition. H. Pylori can be detected via a breath test, blood test, or a stool test.
    You may be asked to drink a small amount of clear, tasteless liquid that contains radioactive carbon, in case you choose the breath test. H. Pylori bacterium breaks down the liquid upon reaching the stomach. Your doctor will then ask you to blow into a bag that will be immediately sealed. If the bacterium is present in the lining of your stomach, your breath sample will contain the radioactive carbon.
  • Endoscopy
  • It is the examination of your upper abdomen using a scope. Your doctor may insert a tube attached with a lens (endoscope) into your throat and proceed to examine your stomach and small intestine. This helps the doctor to look for signs of redness, irritation, inflammation.
    If he suspects inflammation, he may get small tissue samples for further examination. This process is termed as biopsy, and it can also identify the presence of H. pylori bacterium in your stomach lining.

Risk Factors

The risk factors for gastritis are as give below:
  • Aspirin
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol intake
  • Steroids
  • Specific medicines
  • Iron and potassium supplements
  • High stress
  • Thinning of the stomach lining
  • Cancer medications
  • Bacterial infection (e.g., H. pylori)
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
Causes
Essentially, both acute and chronic gastritis is caused because of the Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) bacteria, resulting in the inflammation of the stomach mucosa. In the beginning, the bacterium infects the stomach antrum and slowly spreads to the stomach mucosa. In worst cases, it may even remain there for a long time, even years. Another major cause of gastritis is the intake of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, there are other reasons behind the inflammation of the stomach lining, including:
  • Alcohol
  • Intake of drugs such as cocaine
  • Trauma
  • Allergic reactions due to certain drugs
  • Bile reflux
  • Bacterial, viral and parasitic infections
  • Fungal infections
  • High level of stress
  • Food poisoning
  • Radiation
In most cases, gastritis is caused by the intake of NSAIDs and infectious agents, especially H. Pylori.
Treatment
Grocare's Ayurvedic Treatment for Gastritis

Made with the goodness of pure and enriched herbs, Xembran® and Acidim® are natural ayurvedic medicines that work in harmony to heal and rejuvenate the stomach lining. Xembran® was explicitly designed to kill H. pylori and other pathogenic bacteria that can result in chronic infections and internal inflammation. Besides, it is an herbal bacteriostatic. Acidim® helps reduce bloating and acidity by maintaining healthy pH levels and lowering acid reflux. An average pH level and healthy gut microflora enables the proper functioning of the organs and promotes healing, thereby curing gastritis permanently and effectively.

Two tablets of Acidim® should be taken twice a day (post breakfast and dinner), and two tablets of Xembran® should be taken twice after dinner, and one should be taken after breakfast. The tablets should be taken for four to six months or as prescribed by the doctor until complete recovery. If taken within the prescribed dosage, Xembran® and Acidim® are not known to cause any side-effects.

On the other hand, Castor oil helps treat gastritis and provides relief from the discomfort in the stomach. Castor oil possesses rich anti-inflammatory properties and is a good moisturizer due to the presence of Ricinoleic Acid — the primary fatty acid in castor oil. In conditions such as acid reflux, gastritis, IBS, and hiatal hernia, the gastro intestinal tract (GI) is always in a state of irritation and inflammation. The intake of castor oil can help relieve the inflammation, eliminate the toxins from the stomach and intestinal lining, as well as remove unhealthy gut microflora.

Curcumin also helps provide relief from gastritis, alongside other inflammatory conditions. It possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties that match the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs without any adverse symptoms.

The medicines can be taken safely by patients with diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, and pregnant women.

Prevention

  • People should limit or completely stop the intake of alcohol. Moderate drinking includes one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men.
  • Medications that inflame the stomach lining should be avoided by people in most cases. These drugs include ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, etc.
  • Viral infections are also responsible for causing gastritis, which means that a person should be cautious by avoiding contact with H. Pylori.
  • People should limit the intake of acidic food, juices with citric acid, coffee, and carbonated beverages. Smoking should also be avoided at all costs and completely stopped, if possible.
Some foods may provide you relief from gastritis and lessen the symptoms. Any diet regimen doesn’t cause gastritis; however, eating certain foods may worsen the symptoms. Mentioned below are some of the foods and beverages that may help provide relief from gastritis symptoms:
  • Fat-free foods, including lean meats, fish, and vegetables
  • Beverages free of caffeine and non-carbonated beverages
  • Low-acidity foods, including beans and vegetables
  • High-fibre foods, including beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
If you feel that a specific food is worsening your symptoms, avoid eating it. It may also be a reason for you to have food allergies.

Some types of gastritis may lead to a stomach ulcer, referred to as peptic ulcers, if it's left untreated. People with ulcer should make sure that they’re eating food full of nutrients. Sticking to a healthy, balanced diet makes it easier for the ulcer to heal. Given below are the foods and beverages that are allowed on a gastritis diet and stomach ulcers:
  • Natural juices
  • Lean meats, fish, eggs
  • Vegetable oils and olive oil
  • Lentils, chickpeas, and soybeans
  • Milk, yogurt, and low-fat cheese
  • Fruits such as melons, bananas, and apple
  • Vegetables like leafy greens, spinach, zucchini, and carrots
