Gastritis: Natural cures and remedies

Gastritis is a morbid condition characterized by inflammation of the stomach walls and can lead to other annoying disorders such as bad breath, bitter mouth, heartburn, feeling of nausea, vomiting, etc. It is a very common disorder and if left untreated it can cause further complications (ulcers etc.). The causes of this disorder are to be found in an unhealthy lifestyle (especially in cases of sedentary lifestyle and lack of movement and physical exercise), an unbalanced diet (especially rich in foods that fuel this disorder such as wine and coffee ‘, fried foods, packaged foods, alcohol and smoking, etc.) and also in states of mental stress from which many individuals suffer today. Gastritis therapy is therefore based on rebalancing lifestyle and eating habits. It is important (in case of a too sedentary lifestyle) to start doing physical exercise or even simple movement such as long walks. For states of stress you can use herbal teas with a powerful relaxing effect such as the onelemon balm and valerian , very useful for rebalancing our mental state. But the therapy is mainly nutritional and involves the elimination (or drastic reduction in consumption) of those foods that fuel this pathological state. In particular, we must eliminate the use of coffee, wine, smoking and alcohol, junk foods (fried foods and packaged foods rich in hydrogenated fats). At the same time it is recommended to increase the consumption of all those foods that have anti-inflammatory and healing properties for the mucous membranes of the stomach and the organs of the digestive system as a whole). In particular, the consumption of carrots, potatoes, cabbage, chamomile and mallow is recommended as these vegetables all have a powerful protective, anti-inflammatory and healing action on the mucous membranes of the stomach. These measures should be sufficient to resolve gastritis without resorting to drugs which could be ineffective if a correct diet and lifestyle are not observed (if, therefore, the causes of the problem themselves are not removed).
