No: Nothing is permanent, except maybe death.
Dr. Heidi Fowler

No permanent cure.: Ginger An adult can chew 1/4th ounce of raw ginger to decrease nausea but should not exceed 4 grams per day. Ginger can cause mouth irritation & heartburn – so encourage ginger tea instead. Place thin slivers of fresh organic ginger in tea pot with boiling water – steep for 5 minutes & then slowly sip.

Bland diet: Eat foods that have few additives and spices. Fruits, vegetables and grains are good sources of these. Avoid spicey, citrus and dense foods as they can further irritate the lining of the stomach.

What is gastritis?

Stomach upset: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflammed stomach." the term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, h.Pylori infection, atrophic & hypersecretory problems. Try acid blockers & diet modification, recommended by your doctor.
