What is the typical  treatment for a condition of chronic active gastritis,  helicobactor associated (surface colonization) with focal intestinal metaplasia?  Are there any natural supplements I could take from the health food store?  If taking antibiotics, what kind of probiotics should I purchase?

Usual treatment is use of medication (proton pump inhibitors or specific forms of histamine blockers), change in diet to a GERD-friendly one, and lifestyle changes.

Probiotics are suggested to help in some cases if H. pylori is present, but the H. pylori should be treated if present.

There are a number of good probiotics on the market. Some brands include Culturelle, Digestive Advantage-IBS, PB8, and FloraQ. If taking antibiotics, make sure to take them at least 2-3 hours after taking the antibiotics.
