Some Diet & Lifestyle Tips for Gastritis:
Eating habits. If you experience frequent indigestion, eat smaller, more frequent meals to buffer stomach acid secretion. Avoid any spicy, acidic, fried or fatty food. Practice good eating habits.
Avoid alcohol. It irritates and erodes the mucous lining of the stomach, causing inflammation and bleeding.
Don't smoke. Smoking interferes with the protective lining of the stomach, making the stomach more susceptible to gastritis as well as ulcers. Smoking also increases stomach acid; delays stomach healing and are a leading risk factor for stomach cancer. Still, quitting isn't easy, especially if you've smoked for years. Talk to your doctor about methods that may help you stop smoking.
Switch pain relievers. Some may cause stomach inflammation or make existing irritation worse.
Follow doctor's advice. Your doctor may recommend that you take an over-the-counter antacid or acid blocker to help prevent recurring gastritis.
Maintain a healthy weight. Heartburn, bloating and constipation tend to be more common in obese people. Maintaining a healthy weight can often help prevent or reduce these symptoms.
Exercise regularly. Aerobic exercise that increases your breathing and heart rate also stimulates the activities of intestinal muscles, helping to move food wastes through your intestines more quickly.
Manage stress. Stress increases risk of heart attack and stroke, increases stomach acid production and slows digestion. For relaxation practice yoga. Make a habit of regular exercise, morning walk, eat healthy, nutritious food, it boosts your immune system & makes you calm.
