I developed ,leaky gut and mild chronic gastritis from alcohol, NSAID and coffee some 4 years ago. Went paleo (alcohol, NSAID, coffee free too) 2 years ago and cured leaky gut. The gastritis remains, gets wors after sugar, carbonated drinks , even simple lemon water. Also recent attempt to cure it with intermittent fasting got it worse, not better. I am best eating frequent small meals. A am considering PPI. Are there non medication solutions?

They will destroy your whole GI tract. Consider anything else before you take PPIs. And if you have mild SIBO that could be the cause of your gastritis, you are going to regret taking PPIs for the rest of your life.

I suggest you limit your carbohydrate intake to 50-60 grams per day and be selective about which carbs you choose. I've overcome IBS but continued to suffer from acid reflux. Going on a low-ish carbohydrate diet works for me and, after an initial transition period, makes me feel great (..I also lost a few pounds).

I recommend you read Fast Track Digestion Heartburn by Norm Robillard. Essentially Dr. Robillard maintains GERD is often caused by small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). By going low carb you starve out this bacterial excess.

Good luck.
