What tests helped with your diagnosis?
Do you suffer with heartburn ?
When diet is bland and wondering how long suffering?

I went to a nutritional therapist and she gave me a chart that identified the foods that are acidic in nature and those that are alkaline.  In general - fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline and meats, dairy products, and processed (Fast) foods are very acidic.  She explained that you should consume roughly 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic.

I still have some digestive disorders which I believe are related to my gall bladder, but by going to a more bland, alkaline diet - my gastritis seems to be much better in less than 6 weeks.

By chance have you heard of Miso ?
The nutrionist said it helps many with stomach troubles.
Did you have heartburn with your Gastritis and or find out a trigger ?

Hello:

How long did you have gastritis before going to a nutritionist?  Did it develop because of GERD?  Did you have nausea and sometimes pain in your back as well as having pain below the sternum and ribs.  I  have that pain but also have some pain in my back right behind my stomach and it even shoots up my back sometimes.  This has been going on for 2 months and I'm afraid that it has or will become chronic.

Was your gastritis diagnosed by upper GI or endescope?

Sorry for all the ?'s but I need to find a way to start to cure this before I lose much more weight.

Thanks so much.

The nurse wanted me to try Boost to gain weight but too much sugar content.
What prevents you from eating ? Pain to heartburn: lasts 3 hours and stomach is sour and burning. Yet hunger gnawey is no good either.

The books I listed in a previous post were interesting on blood and stool tests too.

I have been diagnosed with gastritis following a gastroscopy.  I have been in daily pain/discomfort for many months and have been taking a prescribed acid control drug called Zoton.

Two weeks ago I tried some Aloe Vera Juice.  The pain stopped by the end of the first day and I haven't had any since.  I follow the instructions of 15ml three times a day.  My GP says she is certain that there should be no adverse interaction with my drugs which I have continued to take.

Hope this helps

I've had gastritis for what seems like years. Had 2 endoscopies to diagnose it and no inflammation was discovered, anywhere along the line. Consultant recommended better diet, cutting out the obvious like too much booze, caffeine and spicy foods - also, trying to eat regular small meals and avoid overt stress (!). Have taken Zoton and Losec, but don't always work. My symptoms are pain and ache behind breast bone and excessive burping - occasionally, I have reflux and so my bed is 20cms higher at the head end, which helps.
