Gastritis is a condition that occurs when white blood cells move into the wall of stomach due to some injury. It also refers to mild irritation, inflammation and infection of the stomach lining. It may be acute and chronic. The more chances of chronic gastritis are in people suffering from severe iron deficiency. The stomach is J-shaped where the foods and liquid consumed are collected and later break down into pieces for digestion. Any disorder in the stomach lining will interfere with the proper digestion of food resulting in other physical disorders. If not treated properly it gives rise to ulcers also.

Causes of Gastritis

The various causes of gastritis are:

  • Alcohol
  • Viral and bacterial infections
  • Peptic ulcer disease
  • Pernicious Anemia
  • High intake of spicy foods

Home Remedies for Gastritis

A teaspoon of ajwain (Carom seeds) with a pinch of salt is one of the effective home remedies for gastritis.

A fresh ginger if chewed before taking meals stimulates digestion, thus preventing gastritis.

Coconut water is an excellent natural remedy for gastritis. Coconut water greatly helps in bringing the normal condition of the stomach within a few hours.

Soon the warmth will help to settle your stomach and help you to feel better.

#10 - LORENA - 07/21/2008 - 06:22
Jump in the shower, as hot as you can stand. A hot bath helps, afterwards go somewhere private and toke up.
#11 - JOhnyFeelgood - 07/30/2008 - 18:47
there is this juice that some grocery stores have in stock called bonacult its good for gastritis
#12 - ajhastheremedy - 08/27/2008 - 13:54
smoking pot also helps. that's what's given to HIV/AIDS and cancer patients to help ease the nausea from medicine cocktails.
#13 - ttb3768 - 10/18/2008 - 06:08
Stir one teaspoon of baking soda in an 8oz. glass of water at room temperature. Mix until the water isn't cloudy anymore. Drink the water. Within 10 minutes your stomach will be feeling much better. The baking soda neutralizes the burning feeling in your stomach.
#14 - ALLthatGLITTERS - 10/18/2008 - 18:35
I have suffered from gastritis for the last year at least. When I returned to Oz from travelling I began acupuncture..and I think it has helped, as mine is triggered by stress..I havent been to my chinese medicine doctor for over 3 months now, and am feeling terrible pain..I believe its because i havent had any acupuncture...also lemon and ginger tea is good...I dont believe there is an actual cure, its about smart choices, and lots of herbal tea before/after eating
#15 - kimberley - 10/20/2008 - 04:38
Squeeze half of a fresh lemon in 8-12oz of warm water. Drink slowly over a course of an hour and it will make the acid in your stomach more alkaline.
I have had Gastritis for over a year now and this does work. Milk has lactic acid and will cause more pain in the long run. Stay away from milk!
#16 - Lisa - 10/30/2008 - 18:47
Believe it or not, my mother used aloe vera plant to help my gastritis. Simply cut off a small piece of the plant, peeling the skin and cook your food with the jello like flesh of the plant ^^ You don't even taste it!
#17 - Angelique - 10/31/2008 - 15:31
I've suffered with on-again-off-again gastritis all my life. Started up again in April; scary trip to hospital; thought I was having a heart attack. I drink chamomile tea and that always helps. Staying regular helps too. My mom also used aloe vera for her stomach problems; she mixed the juice in water.
#18 - arena - 11/22/2008 - 14:44
people please trust these remedies, they're proven.
true, lemon juice is acidic as it is, but it really does turn to alkaline as it reaches the stomach. if you still doubt it, instead of contesting with your own points of view, it might be better if you consult a physician and ask for a brief explanation on lemons. lol

or you're using the internet, why not look it up on wikipedia or sumthing, sheesh..

i'm sorry if i might sound a bit appalling but, guys, these remedies wouldn't be posted here if they're not proven to work, or at least safe for that matter. try them, they work... if you still doubt bout lemons, then go coconut water. there are a lot of alternatives.savvy?;-)
#19 - Jet - 12/22/2008 - 23:21
Thank you everyone for all this information. I am recovering from an ulcer and did not know all this abdominal pain and bloating I was having was gastritis until I saw a specialist. I had mainly been using a heating pad on it when it was ailing me often. I also was told I have acid reflux so unfortunately some of the remedies for gastritis I am supposed to stay away from to keep the acid reflux down. I know from research that lemon juice turns alkaline once it hits your system, and love it too! But was told to stay away from it due to my reflux. Can anyone tell me if this is true? My gastritis has acted up again and I couldn't bare it so looked up remedies online. I also read on another site that grape juice is helpful. The link below is to a site that list acid/alkaline foods. It had become extremely helpful to me when I had the ulcer as to what foods I should eat more in my diet to keep the acid down.
#20 - Karina - 01/16/2009 - 08:29
3 years ago someone told me to sit in a bathtub, about 5 inches of lukewarm water for 5 minutes. its the equavalance of immodium. It works!

now lets say you go to the washroom a little after your first tub seance, sit in the tub a second time and your good for the day.
#21 - Nancy - 01/22/2009 - 08:30
does anyone know if a stomach rash is common with gastritis?... i have one at the moment with very bloated feeling.

#22 - Hayley - 01/31/2009 - 22:59
Hi, does any1 know of natural remedies for "Irritated Bowel Syndrome" ?
#23 - Nivea - 03/04/2009 - 03:17
A way to help reduce burning/bloating/gas pain is try to have something in your stomach every three hours. It doesn't have to be a full meal. When the stomach is empty, the acids begin working by themselves. Someone that suffers from gastritis or any kind of stomach condition will feel the burn/bloating/pain even stronger than a person who doesn't suffer from a stomach condition.
#24 - Hector - 03/19/2009 - 07:51
thanks to u all. i woke up feeling like this >-( i drank coconut water and now i feel like this :-D

ya alcohol make u feel so up but when gastritis hits ui next day, u feel like dying and u might go into fits and faint as well. i drink not a lot and i always suffer. is there anythings i can take before going to bed soas not to invite the bloody gastritis. thanks
#26 - deep - 04/21/2009 - 10:27
Slippery elm powder (1tsp) and ginger (1/2tsp) work great in about 10 minutes in warm water. Lemon jiuce I have never had relief, but I think is good because is very cleansing and you probably need this if have gastritis, so would do 1/2 lemon in warm water first thing AM. Also, cumin, ginger, fenugreek, turmeric and cayenne pepper, ghee or butter - in well cooked red lentils (soaked overnight and drained) seems to work very well, no pain after meals. If after spice the stomach feels fine then means bacterial infection of some sort - if makes it worse then this is not the case and you have an acid issue. I heard licorice root is not good if have higher blood pressure, but the slippery elm/ginger powder or fresh will give relief. I also take 1 X 2 ounces of Georges aloe vera a day and free form amino acids, and vitamin c from acerola cherry to try and heal the gut. Raw milk is good, boil first and add some ginger powder 1/4 tsp, cardamon powder 1/2tsp and 1/8 tsp Celtic sea salt. It provides relief and has healing powers. Pure salmon oil will help lower the inflammation - GOLD SEAL brand.
#27 - Jackie - 04/23/2009 - 08:04
how long does a gastritis heal? im on geltazine medication and i dont know when i should stop taking it. and also, does eating yogurt safe if u have gastritis? thanks and hoping for kind replies.
#28 - Kit - 05/10/2009 - 22:34
Thank you for the suggestions. I'm writing on behalf of my mom who suffers from gastritis and also has had several scares and thought she was having a heart attack but turns out it's just gastritis. She will try it all for relief.
#29 - Angelika - 05/12/2009 - 15:47

#30 - lawrencia - 05/20/2009 - 10:17
I am suffering from a bout right now. I live abroad but the docs put me on 3 meds, and I did the spinach juice and carrots mixed, seems to have worked as before 2 days ago I could not take a teaspoon of water without my stomach feeling like I was giving it battery acid. Going tomorrow and have a endoscopy, I'm tried of having a nice dinner only to come home and lose it. And 3 or 4 beers...OMG, look out folks bead blowing ahead!
#31 - Mark - 06/09/2009 - 10:56
any kind of animal product will worsen your gastritis. Go vegan until you heal.
#32 - She ra - 06/12/2009 - 09:22
can anyone suggest a fairly safe alcoholic beverage to drink when suffering gastritis?
#33 - emma price - 06/16/2009 - 04:39
It is very strange that no-one mentions apple cider vinegar!!!

If you just search on internet : stomach apple cider vinegar

When I have stomach upset I mix 1 soup-spoon of vinegar in one glass water and I drink it.Few minutes and I am ok!

It is not so disgusting, is like eating a salad with much vinegar :-)

Please try it!
#34 - justin - 06/23/2009 - 14:39
if lemons works... what about limes?...
#35 - heidy - 06/25/2009 - 19:00
My gastritis keeps flaring up because I keep eating tomatoes and I am allergic to them. I LOVE salsa. Does anyone have a good alternative to salsa? I am thinking of buying black bean hummus. Garlic really helps my gastritis and so does apple juice.
#36 - Jenni - 07/17/2009 - 20:38
Buttermilk is a good remedy for gastric trouble.
Cool Milk works as an antacid.
Honey with milk also good for this.
#37 - Soujanya - 07/27/2009 - 04:48
This doesn't solve the entire problem, but when there is nothing else around I keep peppermint candies in my purse.

I know there are several articles that mention that peppermint is a no no, but when I am out and cant find anything else... I suck on a peppermint candy and it gets me through until I take what i need.
#38 - Chantell - 08/07/2009 - 15:38
I have had Gastitis for about 4 years and it comes and goes but what I have found that works is Aloe Vera Juices and Dandeloin Root (pills). This works!! Drink a glass of the juice with two of the Pills in the evening before bed and the same in the morning. For nausea I sip in lemon water. When I am at work I always have someo sort of lemon drops or candy. That helps!!! I don't have a flair up but once or twice a year.
#39 - Joy - 08/24/2009 - 16:37
For those with acidity issues:

You need to balance your acids. Eat organic yogurt daily for a month. It has to be organic because they won't use high fructose corn syrup, which actually exacerbates the condition. What happens is that the good bacteria in the organic yogurt will kill the bad bacteria that is within your digestive tract. You will feel a soothing sensation. Try.
#40 - squatster - 08/29/2009 - 04:26

#45 - Maria - 10/12/2009 - 20:59
I encountered gastritis last night and I do not understand why intake of water will ease the situation. I took sips of H2O and vomited the whole night.. Not forgetting the churning stomach, I couldn't sleep at all. It was a hell of turmoil for me!
#46 - Shandy - 10/25/2009 - 21:59
Has anyone here had back pain associated with gastritis.
#47 - Anand - 11/11/2009 - 17:08
back pain is usually associated with stomach pain
#48 - Zylch - 11/13/2009 - 08:33
I get it from heavy drinking, generally about 36 hours after the drinking episode and I'm usually just thankful it isn't pancreatitis. The most common cause for gastritis is alcohol, but you won't hear most people admit to it. I can tell you from experience that it takes 2-5 days to go away and there's not much you can do about it in the meantime. Just don't drink alcohol or smoke and for the love of God don't make the mistake of drinking orange juice. That was incredibly painful.
#49 - Pain - 11/16/2009 - 10:11
I going through an attack right now it started at 11pm and will probably end at around 6am. The pain doesn't let me sleep. I took a Zantac and a Pantoloc a couple of hours ago no improvement really. I feel like I'm dying please help I've still got 5 hours of this hell.
#50 - Tin - 11/17/2009 - 10:45
My Grandmother has gastritis. Going to try:Ginger root, coconut water, spinach and carrot juice and Aloe. My Question! what is the safest main food she can eat every three hours around these items? Plain chicken, plain bread? Can sombody give me a diet she can fallow? This gastritis has been brought on to her by stress. Thanks to all who reply with main meals that are safe! THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS!
#51 - Frans Grandson - 12/04/2009 - 14:12
All of the above are good with the exception of Peppermint. It irritates the stomach but is good for the colon. If you are in gastritis distress DO NOT EAT for 24 hours. It needs rest because it is irritated. When you do start eating please take it easy and check out diets on the web designed for gastritis. Type in Gastritis Diet. Make sure you take in potassium after not eating for those 24 hours particularly if you have had a lot of diahrhea. If you are having a lot of diarhea now get some pedialite (plain-found in walmart in the baby secion) and drink it. It will take stabilize your electrolytes/potassium level and ease your stomach as well. When you do start eating the next day, try applesauce and banana's. But remember overeating is a problem with gastritis. Rice irritated my stomach. Chamomile tea and ginger work for me. You can buy ginger capsules. I ordered the brand Jarrow and keep them in my soothing. Just remember that often times you may have a hiatal hernia so some remedies that work for gasritis will irritate your hernia. Cayenne Pepper is outstanding for most stomach ailments but seem to aggravate my gastritis. Check this out-I found it hard to believe-They say that if Cayenne pepper is given with warm water during a heart attack it will prevent a fatal attack. That's just a gem but don't take Cayenne pepper with gastritis. My discovery with Gastritis is that I am a very anxious person and it is brought on by stress and or bad eating habits and usually both. When you stress your body turns acidic and I love the advice above on alkaline/acid. Lemon does turn alkaline when it hits the stomach WHEN it is mixed with water. There are books on alkaline diets. Your body slowly breaks down organ by organ when you don't eat an alkaline diet. We have a lot of processed foods which are very acidic. Read as much on the web and educate yourself before taking anything. You will get through this.
#52 - Laura - 12/13/2009 - 02:56
I am now getting over gastritis. It is best to not eat anything the day of gastritis because your stomach is irritated. Drink plenty of fluids but not fluids that have lots of sugar. Do not eat spicy food because it will worsen. For a couple of weeks, soup and broth will work. Mostly soups with low MSG (you dont want a lot of salt in your system) Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. After a couple of weeks when your gastritis subsides, gradually eat regular foods. Avoid dairy for a while.
#53 - Carla - 12/14/2009 - 18:44
i went thru a pretty bad experience today i went thru 3-4 pain cycles and what calmed it down gradually was eating popcorn... this absorbs the acid.. if it still hurts a little after that, eating the actual aloe inside prt will soothe you SOOOO NICE! try it
#54 - Annette - 12/14/2009 - 22:09

#55 - andy - 12/22/2009 - 12:24
Aloe Vera helps!!!! I've just tried the Sock with Rice thing (put some rice in an old sock::put it in the microwave for 3-4 mins::place it on your tummy) you feel great after this!! You'll immediately begin farting :-P and all the air will start coming out!! ;-)

#58 - robelyn - 12/30/2009 - 06:13
The aforementioned natural remedies provide me with moderate relief for a couple of hours; hence I am consistently practicing various types of intake regimens 5 times daily with every small meal consumed.

I take 4 gas relief pills daily for chronic gastritis along with a prescription medication for GERD. One might tally me up to an IBS sufferer since constipation and diarrhea are also on my list of ailments.

Along with gastritis and GERD, I have chronic mid-back pain on my right side that radiates when severe and I truly believe this back pain is a direct rsult of gastritis and GERD.

I find the following foods to have detrimental effects on my symptoms: raw vegetables, greasy food, dairy products and sweets. It is my suggestion to study you own body's effects regarding intake prior to refraining.

After taking my daily medications including Kapidex, Hydrocodone/APAP and various herbs and vitamin/mineral supplements and then getting a good night's sleep, I wake up and flatulence provides full reflief to my back pain until I eat again.

I am categorized as underweight being 51 years old, 5'8" and 110 lbs.; my caloric intake is between 800 and 1200 each day. Thus far my diet consists of baby foods and juices that seem to keep my symptions under contrl just enough to allow me the ability to perform my corporate job responsibilities effectively. On weekends I eat conventional meals helping me ensure proper nutrition.

Although I obtain knowledge from reading about other people's experiences, I continue to research the web's medical pages for confirmations and trustworthy solutions.

#61 - Yvette - 01/21/2010 - 08:14
Stay away from milk or chocalate. This irritates the stomach more. Bread without milk help, lemon water helps, noodles without milk, use rice cheese.
#62 - Monica - 02/05/2010 - 21:05
Does luke warm water also effective o cure gastrix?
#63 - Sam - 02/23/2010 - 09:17
Is the right-flank pain that some of you feel associated with GASTRITIS or possibly with GALL BLADDER problems? Does the pain on your right side radiate around to the back? Is it a BURNING pain, even in the back? Do you ever feel similar pain up under your right ARM or in your right Breast? Have you had any MRIs or other tests that check for organ problems?

Please reply. Thanks!
#64 - SallyWho - 02/24/2010 - 15:55
I'm new to this problem but, I notice any food or drink that causes you to pass gas (burping or farting) helps me right away. I found this out by accident. For me, watermelon (great alkaline food) or hot chocolate works best. Try anything you can think of, that has made you burp or fart (especially burp) in the past an try it. Some exercise helps too. Try standing straight and bending over forward at waist, stand back up straight. Do this about 10 times. Or, lie on your back, bend your right knee up and take it over to the left over your left leg. Repeat on other side. Jumping (gently) on a mini-trampoline every day for just a few minutes works too. Hopefully, some of these ideas will help you. I'm going to try other's suggestions as well. Thanks to everyone for posting. Remember, even if someone's idea sounds weird, or hasn't worked for you, it may be what that one person out there needs to work for them. Keep posting everyone. Blessings

I had gastritis ten years ago. was in agony.never really found out why but went for endoscope etc and was diagnosed with gastritis. pain after this procedure was unbearable. doc said there was no point offering antibiotics cos i did not have helicobacter pylori however a colleague of mine told me the same thing happened to him and the doc prescribed huge dos of a/bs anyway so I asked for them. I have NEVER looked back. Pain disappeared completely within two days never to return.
#66 - burnsiexx - 03/06/2010 - 16:24
I am having a bout right now and had already tried the baking soda that didn't seem to be helping. Now on the the lemon juice. I sure hope it helps soon. I feel like im dying and have been up since 4am.
#67 - Jay - 03/07/2010 - 06:01

Can you please tell me which antibiotic you were prescribed? I am having this same problem, and when i mentioned to give them to me anyway the Doc said it could cause me other infections since there is no current bacteria for it to fight. As it stands currently one Doctor has said he cannot help me and sent me back to my general practioner. I have another appt. tomorrow. Needless to say im not excited, there has not been any good news as yet.:-(
#68 - Jen - 03/12/2010 - 05:54
I took my 3 yr. old to the doctor yesterday and the doctor told me that she has gastritis. She is now complaining that her stomach is hurting worse than yesterday. The doctor has her on zantac and an antinausea medicine. I have my husband going to pick up another perscription that her doctor just called in for her for stomach spasms to try to help stop some of the pain she is having. I can't handle seeing my baby being in so much pain and not knowing what to do about it. Is there anything that I can actually get her to drink that will help her? I have read above about the lemon juice but I don't think that I would be able to get her to drink it. At this point I'm having problems trying to get her to take the zantac because it's "nasty". I have never tried coconut water and I'm wondering what it tastes like because I'm thinking that might be the best thing to try for her. If anyone has any other ideas please let me know because so far the doctor doesn't seem to be helping her! Just remember she is only 3 and she's a picky eater when she's not sick.

check out annlouise dot com, i think it is - get 'gut flush' by ann louise gittleman
also, 'what your doctor might not tell you about IBS' by richard ash md
go to a good GI doc, take the tests you need, you might be surprised at what you find out
good luck! ginger ale can help, so can seltzer, alka seltzer for indigestion / heart burn
stay away from nsaids and aspirin and salicylic acid

The garlic is the worst thing to set gastritis off, i avoid it at all costs, also any heavy, fatty food is a no no. over eating is best avoided too. Chewing gum is also terrible for it as it stimulates your digestive system as your body thinks you are about to eat something....

Pepto Bismol settles my stomach immediatly. Also, Beano helps break down food. I eat 3 beanos before a large meal. I also love the lemon juice. I squeeze a half of lemon in water and mix 1 packet of splenda. I am now gonna try these Chia seeds. I hear they are a superfood and do help with stomach problems. Supposedly they help protect the lining of your stomach, so we'll see.

I use to use Speed and Crystal Meth everyday for about 5 years. It tore my stomach up and now I have severe gastritis. I haven't used a drug in over 1 year now, and the symptoms are still there. I am on Zegerid. Tried Nexium but it didn't work. Stay away from drugs cause it will ruin you're stomach. I'm only 28 years old, and I have the worst stomach in the world. I find that fasting really works. I also stay away from gascious foods and lots of Protein. I am going to try some kind of enzyme pill cause I cannot beaak down food. For Constipation, I use Miralax. It's a miracle powder that gives a gentle but very effective relief. Hope I've helped someone with this post!

I had an attack while at work, i thought i was having a heart attack the pain was unbearable, I've had stomach pain before but this is the first time i have felt this type of pain, more painful than labor pain. Doctor gave me medicine, helped a little bit but one wrong food you eat you'll be back to your fetal position. this time i will try coconut juice.

Was diagnosed with gastritis last year. Have had a few flareups. Worse was in April of this year. Had CT scan done, everything negative. Have changed by diet drastically. Blands, rice and chicken, vegetables, lots of water. No desserts, fried foods, etc. Felt terrible pains for a while. Doing much better. Only getting pain in upper right back; relieved after passing gases. Started taking Peppermint oil (Pepogest) before meals. Has helped. Also drink aloe vera in the morning before breakfast, as well as probiotics in the morning before b. Started exercising again, playing tennis, etc. Trying to stay off meds and go natural. Also trying to combine certain foods and become more alkaline. Hopes this helps someone. Hang in there.

#77 - Steve - 06/13/2010 - 21:38
Green Mint and pinch of salt take with luke warm water its also a good remedy for gastritis.

Hello everyone. I'm 24 years old, and was diagnosed with very bad acid reflux a few years ago - along with a hiatal hernia. I was put on prilosec (20mg daily), which alleviated all my problems.

Fast forward a few years: now acid reflux doesn't ever bother me, but I have more of an issue with an empty stomach. I simply can not tolerate one anymore. If my stomach begins to empty, I start to feel extreme discomfort in my stomach. It is temporarily alleviated by drinking half a bottle of water, or chewing some gum, or eating a mint: anything to get SOMETHING in my stoamch.

Meals make it feel better, but never for as long as I'd like. My diet is rather standard: lots of breakfast foods (typically eat 2 eggs & 3 slices of turkey bacon for breakfast), with dinner usually being chicken, rice, pasta, or tuna. To alleviate my intra-meal pain, I snack on Cliff bars & Nature Valley -- things of that nature that can be easily carried, consumed, and disposed of in any temperature.

I went to the gastro a few months back as this problem was becomming intolerable, and he said to avoid drinking, and smoking, and he doubled my prilosec (I now take 20mg before brekfast, and another 20mg before dinner). He claimed my stomach is hurt, and my continual alcohol consumption (although each drinking episode is only a few beers) perpetuates it's ailment.

I have not been able to stop drinking.

It's hard. My girlfriend loves to drink, my friends love to drink, my favorite bar is right near my house. Basically: it's just a huge social inconvenience to not drink (friends don't understand, and constantly explaining myself to a group of ignorant [@]s is a hassle). Since my last appointment, i have actually managed to increase my cigarette smoking about four-fold. I used to never smoke 'em, but since my girl does - I frequently have one with her while we're out and about (since I like to smoke things... which brings me to my next point/question)...

...I smoke pot. A lot, of pot. All day, every day, since 2004. I'm not perpetually stoned, but i stay mellowed, which is very nice considering my natural levels of anxiety are obscene. Smoking marijuana makes my stomach feel SO MUCH BETTER it is rediculous.

Does smoking (not nicotine, but marijuana) cause the same negative effects for gastritis/acid reflux/your stomach as smoking cigarettes? And in the event that SMOKING pot does cause the same negative effects.... could these negative effects be eliminatd if one VAPORIZED the pot instead? This is not the same thing as smoking - so I am hopefull.

#81 - helen - 08/02/2010 - 12:03
May God be with all of you who suffer like me with the horrible illness called gastritis and or GERD! If you drink alcohol STOP! it will make it worse and a nurse in the hospital told me that it can lead to cancer! its not worth it. The remedy that helped me, along with praying to the Lord, was using a heating pad on my stomach when it flared up. Also if it hurts too bad and you can't sleep go to the ER. Don't suffer like that. I went to the ER and if need be will go again. Love right, exercise, trust in God...Read the bible...Don't give up! Gastritis and other stomach ailments can be caused by emotional relax and give God and Jesus a try! God bless! I love you and so does HE!!:-)

Have suffered with gastric reflux, ulcers and a hernia on the osophogeal tract. I feel for every single one of you.
The only thing that has assisted me is taking LOSEC and dropping weight around my middle. This was the best thing I have tried. Avoiding carbs eased the bloating, and the green tea with lemon also helped.
Things that trigger it are heavy fats, milk, pickles, wine and chili. I am a chocoholic, but as long as I am not in the middle of an attack I am fine and can eat it. I am going to try all things natural, as I don't want to be on costly drugs for the rest of my life. After gaining the weight and the symptoms have returned...I am going to lose it again and change what I eat works!

I have been suffering with heart burn an d suspescted ulcers/gastritis, I found that Apple cider vinegar is very soothing just mix a tablespoon in water and you can also mix it with an active manuka honey (1 teaspoon )
it works very well.

Someone asked if smoking marijuana cause stomach problems. The answer is yes. Smoking marijuana everyday cause extreme stomach problems. Marijuana makes you feel hungry but when you quit smoking daily you have nausea and no appetite at all. You have gastritis and stomach cramps. Stomach problems is a classic symptom of marijuana withdrawal.

I have been suffering from chronic gastritis from past 5 years. My diesase was probably caused by late night eating or NSAIDS. Night time while sleeping is the best time for stomach to heal. So sleep on an empty stomach. Also take following before sleeping:
1. Antacid tablet
2. 4 tumeric tablets
3. 3 Licorice tablets
4. slippery Elm -2
5. Mastic gum -2

Do the same in the morning as soon as you getup with water. THIS WILL HEAL ANY GASTRITIS IF U EAT RIGHT.

I also suffer from gastritis and middle back pain. The abdomen pain and back pain came together on one day and stay ever after each day every day, not matter what I do. I was wondering if there is anyone who had gastritis with back pain who was healed from gastritis and the back pain was gone as well. Please let us know.

My 8 yr old daughter suffers from chronic gastritis, which has caused her to have acute esophagitis. She is currently taking 40mg of prescription prevacid, as per her gastroentrologist. I hate her having to take this and although he said it will get better, she still has more belly aches than not. We are watching her diet and making sure she doesn't eat "triggers". I had her drink some lemon juice about 30 minutes ago and she said her belly is feeling better. Whew! I'm glad I found this info and tried it. For her stomach not to hurt makes me want to jump up and down with joy!
#96 - Charlotte - 12/30/2010 - 19:09
Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences with gastritis and the treatments you find helpful. I am 31 years old and have had gastritis for the last 2 years. It seems to have been brought on by the chronic pain I am in from my fibromyalgia. Gastritis is extremely painful alone and I find the condition on top of the pain I have from my fibro sometimes sends me in so much pain I feel crazy. I can't take most medications for my fibro due to the gastritis.

I have a very healthy diet and am so careful about what I eat and how much. I find sticking to a whole food, vegetarian diet helps to control it and I drink VERY rarely. Over the holidays I wasn't as careful because at Christmas dinner I did have some turkey and wine. Since then I have been in absolute agony from my gastritis. I am now taking tecta 80mg/day, nexium 80mg/day, as well as domperidone and sometimes bentylol. Even with all those meds I am struggling to have relief.

I find slippery elm helps a bit so I am now taking that along with some very well cooked rice porridge. I don't tolerate aloe vera juice/gel well but I am going to try cooking a bit in the porridge like suggested above. Also I am now trying the coconut water and the lemon.

It really helps to hear from people who have been experiencing this and understand how intensely painful it is. Many Drs don't seem to understand this. I have been asking my doc to send me to a gastro enterologist to at least get a gastroscope to confirm what is going on and he never makes the referral, just tells me to take more and more doses of meds that don't really do that much. Maybe I should try the antibiotic treatment even though I my test for H. pylori was negative.
#97 - Illana - 12/31/2010 - 14:14
Used to suffer from gastritis and also had the continued acid with reflux with stomach pain. Try Apple Cider Vinegar. As preventive or to cure the acid. It has worked for me. Just 2-3 full spoons dissolved in 1/2 cup of water.
#98 - AMF - 01/03/2011 - 12:55
I tried apple cider vinegar, at first it seem woks, my pain gone, but i woke up the next morning feeling like having heart attack, and when I stand up i get dizzy, it seem the vinegar caused internal bleeding.

#99 - bam - 01/14/2011 - 21:50
I am 14 years old and I was diagnosed with acid reflux in the summer of 2008, and a few months ago I was diagnosed with gastritus. I thought I was having a heart attack, the pain was right under my boobs and then it spread up to my chest. I was perscribed with Teva-Ranidine, and it really helps. The only downfall is that every time I take it, I get diarrhea. That's the only way the pain will go away. I found that taking tums, drinking lemon water, and putting a hot pad on my stomach eases the pain. Gastritis really has taken a huge toll on my life, I can't do anything anymore! I'm scared to eat when I go out because either the pain is going to come back or I'm going to have to run to the washroom. Does it ever go away?
#100 - nicoleeeee - 01/30/2011 - 12:45
I'm 25 and Ive been having gastritis for bout a month now really slow down me life this [@], I belive I got it from binge drinking every weekend, at first I was getting really bloated couldn't release any of my gas in my stomach I would feel like I was having an asthma attack and would get really dizzy n faint, was scared for my life, I found out it would help to take maylox and mineral water or club soda to help, most of the time it would help but sometimes would just add on to the problem, now three weeks later I get rarely get bloated only if I do heavy activity but my stomach still gets irratated from time to time n still makes me feel out of breath, I'm on prolisec 20mg every morning it seems to help. I've been trying a mixture of stuff like, probiotics, aloe vera, vitiman e, chamomile with anise tea , I just bought some herbal pills called gastritix natural way this really soothed my stomach the first time I tryed it, it has all the herbs for gastritis please look it up and I was just reading about some oil called siberian nut oil it seemed to get good reviews. Thanks for every ones post it has informed me out, I hope I can help someone with this horrible gastritis problem.
#101 - mac - 02/05/2011 - 04:03
My wife was diagnosed with gastritis and erosive esophagitis. A relative recommended her to drink lemon juice to cure the gastritis. It looks like some people here have tried that with success.
Now, after some research on the internet it looks like lemon is not good for the esophagitis.
Can anyone here confirm o deny it?
#102 - carso - 02/06/2011 - 04:11
People that posted did you heal from gastritis? Is so how long did it take? Or does anyone know how long or know anyone that's healed from gastritis ?
#103 - jim - 02/08/2011 - 08:37
I agree Jake, I too had this happen to me from binge drinking, over working my body, stress and excessive ciggarette smoking, basically a college kid life style.. Im 19 years old in shape and found that I had this for two days with extreme discomfort and once I smoked Marijuana the problem was eliminated almost completely. If you suffer from these symptoms make sure toissues. light up a fatty delicious bowl of Chronic to relieve your acute or CHRONIC Gastritis
#104 - Adam - 02/12/2011 - 19:55
i have had gastritis for over 2 months now, doctors meds do not work, in fact nothing works. but its best to eat a vegan alkaline diet. i do find vapors of cannabis eases the pain in stomach. in time this will go and having a belief in your ability to heal is essential. we will recover.
#105 - elizabeth - 03/02/2011 - 03:10
After two years of taking everyday a Protonix (40 mg) that my doctor recomended, I decided to try a more natural remedy. I stop drinking coffe, sodas, and food with a lot of spices. I prepared the aloe vera (pelling the skin and cut in small pieces, put it in the refrigerator) and I eat 2 small pieces with a slice of papaya as soon as I wake up. I've being doing this for the last 3 weeks and now I am feeling great. I have eaten everything (except coffee and sodas) and my gastritis is almost gone. TRY IT!!!!! it will work.
#106 - saes - 03/05/2011 - 15:47

I have GERD, and right now its acting up again. Apple Cider vinegar has never worked for me, but eating an apple always works for me. Also, dry toast helps. too. Sometimes, chewing gum helps.

I,ve suffered from this as long as I could remeber sometimes my pains would be so upsetting that I would cry of course away from everbody else must be a man thing. Iv'e found aloe vera abstract to be verry helpful , although it takes time getting used to the flavor though. (lol) Change in life style is also helpful keep happy hour to a minunm also verry hard to get use to!
#111 - David G - 04/12/2011 - 08:50
Try eating oats without milk, avocado, banana, and apples. These are gentle and helpful to an inflamed stomach. Ask God to use these natural foods to heal you. God bless you all!

Smoking pot doesn't help! Smoking irritates the stomach even more!
#113 - caliwifey - 07/29/2011 - 12:20
I've been suffering from gastritis and the best thing that has worked for me is allowing the stomach to recover from all acids what does that mean? means stop drinking acidic drink, milk will make the problem worse, keeping a healthy balance is the answer eating grains and if you can take everyday these pills they are 100% safe no side effects at all and not expensive you can get them at any pharmacy its called acidophilus its what;s inside yogurt, aloe vera is good vitamin e for skin, avoid milk smoking and alcohol guys it will only irritate the stomach.
#114 - Randy - 09/17/2011 - 16:19
Apple cider vinegar! I had a sinus infection and was desperate to get rid of it without taking antibiotics so I read ACV was good to thin the snot. I took a shot of 2 teaspoons and chugged water to chase and dilute it in my stomach. I woke up the next morning and realized it was the first time in months I'd woken up and not felt sick! I've been taking about a teaspoon a day mixed with about half a cup of grape juice and I've felt so good. I even drank beer last night, took a teaspoon of ACV when I got home and I was fine the next morning! ACV has saved my life!!!!
#115 - REL - 09/18/2011 - 21:09

I was diagnose with gastrits and gastroparesis along with acid reflux in August. My symptoms started in June. I had my gall bladder removed in 2009 and they say that has caused the bile to run freely and cause my gastritis. I take four different medicines for my stomach. I am on omeprazole with helps with indigestion immensely. Also, I take fioricet for abdominal migraines, chloyestramine to bind the bile in my stomach and zoloft to help deal with the emotional side of this. It has affected my life immensely, but I am getting better as the weeks pass. My gastroenterologist said it would take 6 months for the chronic gastrities to heal. The gastroparesis is prolonging my cure because it makes my stomach empty slowly so the bile remains in my stomach longer than most people. I need to eat six times a day to control the pain and the bile. I also have bouts of diarrhea, but these have gotten much better. I urge everyone to find a good doctor to help you through this. My family dr. and GI are working together to combat this. They are hopeful and so am I that this will heal. Please keep your heads up and fight this. I found out the hard way that feeling down about this only makes it worse. God bless all of you and stay strong. You ARE NOT alone.
#117 - Jb - 10/14/2011 - 09:30
FOUND SOMETHING THAT WORKS. My gastritis was so bad that there were times that I could not get out of the bed, or go to school and work. I would suffer through night classes and sit in the hallway balled up and crying when everyone left. My gastritis was caused by h.pylori. The medicines the doctor gave me did nothing for me, so I researched and started my own remedy for a little over a month. I drunk licorice tea every night right before bed, and once during the day. I also ate papaya before meals and sometimes before bed. I swear by this method because it worked. I rarely have problems any more, and was even able to have spicy foods, and alcohol again (careful, not often). YAY, Im normal again!!!!!!
#118 - FoxB - 10/24/2011 - 18:02

do not try lemon juice if you got gastritis ,it may turns alkaline but ,most people i know who has stomach problem after they drink lemon juice would experience severe burning sensation and severe stomach ache!!
try to eliminate dairy product as well although it hasnt been a issue for me apart from sometime yogurt wud gave me a heartburn .sleep early,rest well ,exercise,eat small portion meals,drink water,keep positive attitude .avoid strong tea,coffee,spicy,cold,hard ,fried ,difficult to digest foods.if you can still on those diet and lifestyle ,your symptom will be reduced ,even cured.MY personal experience.and very important! have a 'H . Pylori ' test done ,just in case.

Hello, I have taken an ant-acid for well over 30 years, and as a result I have osteoporosis and have lost a considerable amount of my hair. I'm an trying desperately to get off of Zantac, I'm even trying mastic gum- but it seems that it's effects where off in a few days without Zantac. I was never diagnosed with anything, just told that my stomach produces too much acid. At first I tried taking Betain HCL, but I got severe side pain from it.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can get off of Zantac?

Try eating bark from any tree. The onsages inside help cool the acid. Boil for an hour and drink the water left with a little lemon juice squeeze.

When taking lemon for gastritis only works for people who have low stomach acid, it's very good first thing in the morning before breakfast and after half to one hour you can have something. But for people with high acid it's a no no.

Diagnosed with Gastritis & Gallstones after Ultra sound. Had burning for
1year & felt like Ulcer, never confirmed but believe it's an Ulcer &
gastritis. Please Check for Gallstones too if you have Pain in your Back and sharp hunched over pain, that is Gallbladder Attack. Strong Burning Pain,
Full Stomach & feeling tang Food don't Digest is

The symptoms are similar to heart attack. I was taken to ER but the DOC said there is no issues related to heart. Going to try cocunt water. Thanks for the info guys.

I get flare ups of Acute Gastritis yearly. If its really bad, I go to the ER and they give me a solution of viscous lidocaine, phenobarbital, Donnital, and Mylanta. It\'s called sometimes \"Green Godess\". It helps tremendously but it\'s only temporary. The only thing that seems to help heal me is Carafate. Works every time, I gotta take it for at least 2 weeks. Problem is you have to take it on an empty stomach 2 hours before or after eating, and I eat small meals all day to keep my stomach soothed. I also take anti nausea (zofran) but it just doesn\'t work anymore. I am currently having a horrible flare up, one of the worst ever. I\'m drinking coconut water and will buy some aloe drinks tonight. When I can eat I eat yogurt or kefir, potatoes, soft banana.

Anyway next time if the pain is serious go to the ER an ask for a GI coctail \"Green Godess\", mak sure you see a gastroenterologist, try Carafate.
