Chronic Gastritis

Postby AdmiralJim » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:17 pm

I am wondering there are any dietary changes which you would recommend to help with this condition. The doctors do not know what is causing my chronic stomach inflammation as I don't drink any alcohol or smoke and I am negative for a common bacteria that causes stomach inflammation. I have been told I will have good and bad days and given a leaflet on indigestion which isn't even gastritis grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Do you have acid reflux?

when do you eat, what do you eat, how do you eat it?

The very meaning of the Tibetan term Dzogchen, "Great Perfection," refers to the true primordial state of every individual and not to any transcendent reality.

No I don't have acid reflux. I eat three meals a day. For breakfast I eat toast and porridge (around 7am/8am), for lunch (between 12-2pm) light soup or sushi. My main meal at night ( 8 or 9pm), I eat a variety of things from indian/asian cooking. but usually chicken or read meat and at the weekends i eat quite lightly so usually a veg stir fry for a main meal.

Have you connected this inflammation to any types of food?

What time of day/ which meal to you experience it?

Before or during meals, immediately after meals, or after digesting a meal (about an hour)?

It never completely goes away. I have noticed that fatty foods upset it, specfically milk and cheese and mince, although I have noticed if the milk is used in something cooked ( porridge or sauces) it doesn't have the same impact. I have also bizarrely noticed that it gets worse if I am around people who are wearing strong perfume/aftershave. I get it the worst after digesting meal a but it can happen during a meal or before too.

I think you should investigate whether you have a food "allergy".
