HOMEOPATHY & GASTRITIS

Is the apprehension of heartburn, or indigestion, ‘killing’ your pleasure of eating? Watch out… it could be gastric trouble. Call it ‘heartburn,’ ‘dyspepsia’ or hyperacidity, more than 10 per cent of people who visit their doctor, for abdominal pain, have gastritis, or some other tummy distress, such as irritable bowel syndrome [IBS].

WHAT IS IT

Gastritis is not a solitary disease; it’s an umbrella term, encompassing different conditions, with inflammation of the stomach. Inflammation relates to the response of the body to any kind of irritation, or injury. For e.g., if you scratch your arm with your sharp object, the skin in that area turns red, swollen, warm and tender. This response is called inflammation. When the lining of the stomach is subject to any kind of irritation, or injury, it responds in like manner. Such a response could be acute, or short-term distress . However, in a large number of cases, it tends to run a chronic, or long-term, course with many ups and downs, represented by flagrant symptoms.

A host of factors trigger gastric trouble — right from medical conditions and certain medicines to lifestyle indiscretion. This may include infection, triggered by Helicobacter Pylori, a bacterial incursion, aside from certain parasites, certain drugs [pain-killers; aspirin], stress, excessive alcohol use, and certain foods and so on.

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms include a burning type of pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, bloating, gas, and belching. There may be loss of weight, due to diminished appetite; when there is significant weight loss, you should seek a specialist’s advice promptly.

In acute cases, there may be excessive burning, nausea and vomiting. In chronic cases, there may be gradual loss of appetite, fullness after eating, dull pain, or no pain at all. You should report all such symptoms, which last for more than a week, or two, to your homeopathic doctor and treatment should be started without delay.

The first thing that will tell your doctor, that ‘It’s gastritis,’ is your medical history, lifestyle and certain medicines that you may be taking.

Standard investigations may be required to confirm the diagnosis — blood count, breath test, stool test, endoscopy etc.

HOMEOPATHY: THE SAFE, EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR GASTRITIS

Homeopathic treatment is safe and effective for gastritis. It soothes your tummy distress, pain and other annoying symptoms, associated with the given problem, including IBS, peptic and duodenal ulcers. Managing, controlling and correcting the progress and response are important steps your professional homeopathic doctor will take to treat you at the clinic.

This applies to cases where the disorder has progressed to ulcers in the stomach, or duodenum. In such cases, your homeopathic doctor will employ appropriate homeopathic medicines for gastritis alongside lifestyle and dietetic changes — to heal as well as prevent their recurrence.

Most important: professional homeopathic treatment provides improved therapeutic outcomes, while dealing with stress, one of the major triggers for gastritis.
