If you have been looking for natural home remedies to cure gastritis, then you’re in the right place! Fortunately, there are a lot of remedies that you can prepare at home to get rid of the unpleasant symptoms of the gastritis.

 

What is gastritis?

 

Gastritis is a widely spread disorder, that afflicts millions of people and that, if not treated properly, may lead to ulcers and even tumors.

Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining and can be chronic or acute (short-term) in form. Some symptoms of gastritis may include: bloating, nausea, abdominal pain, burning feeling in the stomach, indigestion, hiccups, loss of appetite, diarrhea.

The main causes of gastritis are: stress, the use of some medications (like anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin), alcohol, smoking, infections caused by viruses or bacteria (Helicobacter pylori), chronic vomiting, bile reflux or drinking too much coffee.

If not treated, gastritis may increase the risk of developing ulcer or cancer.

Doctors often prescribe antacid drugs to cure gastritis, or antibiotics if it is caused by bacteria. Once an infection has been excluded, there are some very effective natural home remedies to cure gastritis.

I myself suffered for years of gastritis and, after researching and trying different remedies, I would like to show you a collection of herbal teas to make at home to soothe the distressing symptoms of gastritis.
