Gastritis

Hello,

I just had an endoscopy done today to see if I may have GERD. Based on the Endoscopy, I was told I have Mild Gastritis. My doctor had prescribed 20mg Nexium or if insurance wont cover that, than 40 mg daily Omeprazole for 4 weeks! Is there a natural alternative to using this medicine? And on that note, can Gastritis even be "cured"? I would like to take a natural medicine if it is possible to get rid of Gastritis. Or is this something I am stuck with for life?

TEJ,

Welcome to the 'site! I know you must be new since we have discussed this, extensively, for more than 10 years.

Have you read the LGS (leaky gut syndrome) article on the home page? Have you followed up with the places that refers you to?

Let us know what you learn.

Walt

Hi,

I actually have been on your site, sorry for not specifying. I asked a question a few weeks ago before I had my endoscopy. I have had chest pain and you told me it sounded like Costo. I got the Endoscopy since doctors thought it was GERD and you did suggest I may have a combination of that and Costo. Glad to know its not GERD.:)
Okay, so I spent most of the day looking over the past articles which contained a wealth of information. Im still a bit confused, forgive me. Candida is like yeast or an infection right? I wasnt informed that my gastritis was caused by Candida but I definitely wasnt prescribed an antibiotic so Im not sure if it is or is not from Candida.
That being said, it seems like most the articles are relating candida and LGS. If you may think I have LGS, can it be not from Candida and how do you know the difference?
I started SR a while ago and have started walking as well when weather permits. Im open to improving my diet but must I be so restricted? I was told I have "Mild Gastritis" so how limiting must I be in regards to food?
Lastly, I guess I would like to hear an overall answer that Gastritis can be completely cured without me taking the Omeprazole at all. Or must I take it as prescribed while I work on the 3LS?
I read the explanation of LGS which was excellent. It actually seemed to hit home as I have chest pain(costo?) which is a symptom of LGS correct? I do apologize if I am asking questions already answered. I just wasnt understanding all the archives I read.

Thank you!

Thanks, TEJ.

The candida does not cause LGS, but it CAN aggravate it. The LGS opens the gut to the dysbiosis that upsets the normal resistance to the candida sprouting into the fungal form which then further perforates the gut so it is more leaky. Unsprouted spore form candida is ubiquitous to the gut and causes no problems in that form.

The very best way to tell if the WFD is worth while is for you to actually DO the PWFD for 2 weeks and see how you feel. If you were convinced that you could feel normal by hanging from your thumbs for 2 weeks you probably would do it. Two weeks is not a big commitment once you have suffered enough.

Since it takes 6-12 months for permanent resolution, even when doing the 3LS very well (gastritis is one of the easiest conditions to resolve), if it were me, I would take any allopathic symptom supressants that work during that period of time.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Juli,

It really depends upon whatever is out of balance. For example: if the HCl is too high antiacids will help most. If the HCl is too low actually taking HCl supplements with meals will help more.

It is up to the doc to decide what is going on and prescribe appropriately. Unfortunately, in my opinion, most docs are too lazy to actually investigate what is going on and "one size fits all".

Walt
