Anyone suffering from gastritis problems knows how painful and inconvenient it can be. For many people, this condition is a direct side effect of medications they are taking. So, while there are plenty of over-the-counter medications to treat it, the last thing they want to do is take a pill to solve problems they are having from another pill.
Some common symptoms of gastritis problems are stomach pain, ulcers, nausea, and vomiting. This condition can lie dormant for days, then pop right back up from a trigger, such as hot food, caffeine, alcohol, or stress. While we make no medical claim as to the effectiveness of these home remedies, some people are using them and reporting success.
Green Tea & Raw Honey
This is one of them more popular home remedies for gastritis and there is a lot to like about this one. The lukewarm water combined with the green tea and raw honey can have a soothing effect on the digestive tract. For some, drinking just one cup a day can show results, while others enjoy a cup with each meal.
By simply paying attention to what you eat and how your gastritis flairs up, you may be able to naturally eliminate the problem. For instance, if you wake up in the middle of the night after every Taco Tuesday, where you load up your tacos with peppers and hot sauce, that is a pretty easy fix.
Processed, canned, and acidic food also often give people stomach problems. You may want to consider a different “eating lifestyle,” such as a paleo diet to eliminate these food groups altogether.
H.Pylori is common in many people that suffer from gastritis, and luckily for them, garlic extract can naturally help to get rid of this bacteria. This is a very cheap option to try for anyone suffering with gastritis problems. You can either crush garlic and use the extract or actually purchase extract at your local store or online.
The probiotics movement started a couple of years ago and it continues to gain momentum with every passing day. It started with supplements and has since grown to be included in different yogurts and daily drinks. These yogurts and drinks are often much more expensive than their counterparts without the probiotics, but they might help and are very convenient to take.
Changing Your Lifestyle
That Friday afternoon beer always tastes great after a hard week, but alcohol could be the source of your stomach problems. Smoking cigarettes or cigars is not going to calm things down either, so they will have to go if you are partaking in them. If you are a habitual user of over-the-counter pain meds, they are known to tear up the stomach lining, so that is also something else to consider looking at.
