Need a plan to heal gastritis

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 26, 2013 at 1:33 AM

For about 2 years I have suffered with gastritis. I have indegestion with reflux. This gives me discomfort after eating any food. The disconform is around my heart and it radiates into my under arm, sholder and neck. Lots of gas! Breakfast always goes smooth. Lunch I start to feel it. Dinner just sits in my stomach with hours of discomfort. H. Pylori found and treated.

I have been grain/legume free for a week. Gluten and dairy free for a while. I stick to chicken/salmon and fruit veg. This makes a big diffrence, but still have issues. any advice that could help me?

and supplements just to make sure it doesn't come back. On another note, I had an echocardiogram today. Heart is fine, but the Doc mentioned a possible Hital hernia? At first I started to panic, but he told me he was unsure and to not leave thinking I had one. Last upper Endocscopy 2 months ago show I didn't have one.... Anyone have any thoughts on this. I have reflux symptoms right now, but it's from the gastritis.

Update: So it's been getting better and better every day. I ate a few trigger foods that put be back a few steps, but still making progress. I started taking slippery elm and DGL supplements. Aside from that my doctor prescribed me Carafate Tablets(sucralfate) and so far they've been helping. I don't like to take medicine, but I haven't dug up too many bad side effects of them. The most important thing is that they aren't PPI's or Acid reducers. Other then that, I'd say a few more days and I should be back to "feeling" 100%. I say that because I will more then likely continue my perscriptio

Like I said, fruit and starchy tubers like yams and potatoes seem to subside all my symptoms. Since I always wake up feeling fine. I might just do a solid week of fasting between meals, then eating bananas, yams, sweet potatoes. While drinking bone broth and coconut water. Let me know if yours resolves. This is really starting to interfere daily routine.

Yeah. I'm 90% sure that's what caused it. I know a lot of people say papaya actually helps, but a side effect of the tablets is that they can CAUSE severe gastritis. I had an endoscopy a few weeks back and they just told me mild gastritis. They put me on a PPI which just GAVE me heartburn. Couldn't sleep, constipated. Skin flared up within 3-4 days which scared the hell out of me since I've been rosacea free for almost a year since going paleo. So I diced the PPI's and kept eating my normal diet. It was getting better until I decided to go back to eating fatty cuts of beef and a bit of chocola

Are you strictly paleo? If not, I recommend going strictly paleo for a month. And if that doesn't work, go even stricter and follow Robb Wolf's autoimmune protocol.

I went strict paleo because even when I was eating "paleo", I realized that I was still eating sesame, eating more starches than I should, and I ate honey.

And maybe you can eat more foods that are alkaline.

I can absolutely recommend the autoimmune protocols out there. It can look really limiting, but we found my wife had major soy, gluten, and maybe even egg allergies. Cutting those out, and then limiting eggs, and some nightshades has really helped.

Also look up elimination diets.

Doesn't found like you're eating much dark green leafy veggies? Try 2 cups at every meal. There's LOTS of ways to get them in. My favorite way to eat kale and bacon, great as a side dish or as a whole meal with some other sides:

I recommend to find out what causes your gastritis. No doctor will answer that question. But proper testing will.

Try to get as much medical testing done as possible.

GI (genetic) stool testing is a must. Testing for parasites, SIBO, gut permeability, stomach acidity, whatever. Gastritis does not appear out of nothing.

Strict diet might work, but not in all cases. If you have something serious going on, diet is not the answer.

DO NOT TAKE PPIs! JUST DON'T!!! They will wreck more havoc than anything else.

I'm dealing with this right now also. I believe my gastritis was triggered by a combination of papya enzymes and and getting almost 70-80% of my calories from fat. I have a small knot type feeling behind my belly button along with some burning after eating fatty foods. Also a bit of heartburn. I always wake up feeling pretty great. Mornings and breakfasts are always good. Depending on what I have for lunch or dinner, things can go north or south. I thought I had gotten over it the other day, only for the burning to come back this afternoon after having a shrimp, onion, avocado and olive oil salad.

I'm seriously thinking about just going on a diet of tubers, fruits & vegetables, and bone broth for about a week to try and really nip it in the butt. I think if I keep eating fat and acidic things the HCL keeps coming up and preventing the irritation from healing.
