Gastritis is a condition, in which the lining of the stomach gets inflamed. It mainly happens because of excessive or unbalanced eating. But, there can be other causes also, such as consumption of strong acids, prolonged tension, grief, anxiety, worries and nervousness.
Common symptoms include bad breathe, covered tongue, loss of appetite, heartburn, increased flow of saliva and even stomach pain or cramping. Following are some of the most popular home remedies for gastritis.
Best Home Remedies For Gastritis
Water, Milk And Ginger
Mix 100 ml of water, 100 ml of milk and 5 gram of ginger together in a container. Put it to boil at high heat until the mixture is reduced to around 100 ml only. It means all the water would get evaporated. Filter this mixture and leave it to cool down. Drinking this home-made tonic will bring you great relief from gastritis.
Water, Milk And Garlic
Instead of using ginger in the above remedy, you can also use garlic for similar benefits. The procedure remains the same.
Mix ½ tsp. of powdered cumin seeds in 1 liter of water. Boil this mixture for just 2 minutes. Filter the liquid and drink it. You can drink it as many times as you want. In fact, you can even replace normal water with it.
This remedy does not just treat gastritis but also prevents its future occurrences. But, do not put it in fridge to be used the next day. You should prepare fresh ‘cumin seeds water’ everyday.
Fenugreek, Turmeric And Buttermilk
Mix ½ tsp. of fenugreek and a pinch of turmeric in two cups of buttermilk. Stir the mixture thoroughly. You should drink it at night right before you retire to bed. This way, the remedy will be at work throughout the night. The next day, you will feel relieved from gastritis to a great extent.
Fennel seeds stimulate the digestive system and relieve gastritis. Therefore, chewing ½ tsp. of fennel seeds frequently throughout the day can also prove to be a very effective home remedy.
Triphala Powder With Honey
Mix 1 tbsp. of triphala powder in one glass of water. Boil the mixture until the quantity of the liquid is reduced to ½ glass. Now, add 1 tsp. of honey into this decoction and drink it while it is still reasonably hot.
Honey And Pepper Powder
Taking a mixture of 1 tsp. of honey and ½ gram of pepper powder two times a day can also prove to be very beneficial in the treatment of gastritis.
Chew 300-600 mg of licorice half an hour before your regular meals 2-3 times daily. This simple home remedy does not just treat the symptoms of gastritis but also strengthens the entire gastrointestinal tract.
Drink ½ cup of potato juice 2-3 times a day, preferably 30 minutes before your regular meals.
If you are suffering from acute gastritis, you can get great relief by taking 1 cup of rice gruel 2 times a day. This remedy also strengthens the digestive system.
Drinking coconut water is one of the simplest yet most effective home remedies for gastritis. Besides providing essential minerals and vitamins to your body, coconut water also provides your stomach the necessary rest. All these activities eventually alleviate the symptoms of gastritis. In fact, gastritis can completely go away if you drink only coconut water (nothing else, no other food, no beverages) for 24 hours.
Last, but not the least, depending upon the severity of your condition, one or two days of fasting can also prove to be very helpful in curing gastritis faster. During fasting, you should be drinking water only.
