My husband has been suffering from chronic gastitis for a long time. He was treated for h-pilori twice, the last treatment this year that only brought relief for a short time. He is highly allergic to penicilin. He is having trouble getting a handle on this. Does anyone have any advise?

  • How about a natural health care doc ? If you are not getting results from "regular" medical care, might it make sense to try something different ? What area of the US are you in ? I am a natural health pro and know some other practitioners in other areas of the country ?

I am a natural health pro and know some other practitioners in other areas of the country ? We live in Canada and we are indeed going to try a natural health doc, since no one seems to be able to help us. We are just now waiting for another breath test to see if the h-pilory has come back. Thanks for the advise. Edda

  • I used to have this, then I decided to adopt a low sodium diet, and have not looked back. There are sodium substitutes in the condiments section of supermarkets, with the salt. I use 4 parts of that, to 1 part iodised salt, and use sparingly, getting most of my flavour from herbs & spices, sweet 'n' sour, or curries & chilli dishes (it might be an idea to slowly increase the strength of those dishes, as you reduce the salt substitute mix content). Drink a glass of milk, or buttermilk before eating. There are alternatives to penicillin which he may not be allergic to.

This sickness is distracting me from school and every day enjoyments. Things haven't been so bad latley after saying away from many trigger foods completely!!! also I've been givin a pain releiver called dicylomine it really seems to be helping. I take acid reducers every day and some times nausea medication. And even though I am unable to eat some of my favorite foods like chocolate life is much more easy to manage:)www.myspace.com/kaylabagcal01

  • My girlfriend got chronic gastritis from NSAID meds she takes for her headaches. I gave her some "PPC" (polyenylphosphatidylcholine) I was taking as a supplement for my liver and this stuff fixed her gastritis very quickly. PPC is a concentrated form of Lecithin I found on the internet. It's not cheap, but I have found it works well for both me and my gal. I don't know if simple Lecithin would work as well, but it might be worth a try. You'd probably need to take several gelcaps per day. Here's a quote on a article I found about how PPC helps fix gastric mucosa. Good Luck, and GodSpeed------------------------------------------------Doses of aspirin as low as 30 mg suppress the production of protective prostaglandins in the gastric mucosa. In addition, aspirin's direct contact with the gastrointestinal tract interferes with the hydrophobic "non-wettable" properties that protect the underlying epithelium from gastric acid and other toxic substances. This characteristic seems to be attributable to an extracellular lining of phospholipids, which are synthesized in surface mucus cells of the stomach. Aspirin and other NSAIDs can rapidly transform the gastric mucosa from a non-wettable to a wettable state, thereby increasing the tissue's susceptibility to the corrosive actions of gastric acid.A study on experimentally induced gastric ulcers in rats (Dunjic BS, et al., 1993) showed that mucosal lesions were significantly reduced by a single dose of PPC given before or after the injury factor, which in this study was ethanol or an NSAID.

He is highly allergic to penicilin. He is having trouble getting a handle on this. Does anyone have any advise?My advise would be Repeat the course of H-Pylori. now for 7 days a) Tab Metronidazole 400 mg thrice daily, b) Cap Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily c) Tab Ethyromycin 250 mg three times daily.Plan: Avoid heavy meals.Take small meals frequent.no meal atleast 2 hours before sleeping.Keep Ispagula Husk with you as an emergency measure. You may use it 2 Table spoons in a glass of water when ever needed.Buy a good quality Olive Oil can...80-100 ml is good enough. Take 1 spoon before sleep daily atleast 2 months.I hope this will bring an end to your sufferings.regards

  • Persistent gastritis can be a symptom of a gastric ulcer or pernicious anemia or stomach cancer or other disorders.
