Treatment for gastritis disease depends on the specific causes. Acute gastritis caused by NSAIDs or alcohol may be relieved by stopping use of those substances. Chronic gastritis caused by H. pylori infection is treated by eradicating the bacteria by using antibiotics. Most gastritis treatment plans also incorporate medications that treat stomach acid in order to reduce signs and symptoms you’re experiencing and promote healing in your stomach.
If you have H. pylori you will probably be prescribed three medications. ‘Triple therapy’ including a proton pump inhibitor to reduce acid production and two antibiotics, is commonly used to treat H. pylori-related gastritis and ulcers. Some of the same drugs are used for non-H. pylori gastritis as well for symptoms (like indigestion) due to ulcers including antacids, H2 blockers, and proton-pump inhibitor.
Herbs are generally a safe way to strengthen and tone the body’s system. As with any therapy, you should work with your health care provider to get your problem diagnosed before starting any treatment. Any herbs you may use including cranberry, mastic, DGL-licoreice, and peppermint.
* Lifestyle and Diet
Your symptoms may be gone right away once you stop being an alcoholism and cut your habit of smoking. Eat fiber rich diet and foods containing flavonoids such as apple, celery, onions, and tea. It help you to stop the growth of H. pylori.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should ask your doctor before taking any medication, including herbs.
