I have gastritis n' gerd. I am taking omeprazole. Read that it is not good to take it longterm. Took for 1 mo. I plan to take probiotics instead. Shld I?

A bit more complex!: I agree that it is not wise to take omeprazole longterm. While probiotics may help, that alone is likely not enough to resolve your gastritis & GERD. See http://www. Naturalnews. Com/036336_PPIs_acid_reflux_side_effects. Html

H pylori gastritis showed in EGD. Pain, nausea, treated 3 x with antibiotics. H p. positive. Is L glutamine and probiotic good to fight inflammation?

H pylori gastritis showed in EGD. Pain, nausea, treated 3 x with antibiotics. H p. positive. Is L glutamine and probiotic good to fight inflammation?

Inflammation: Those products won't eradicate inflammation. Specific treatment with three antibiotics and bismuth for 2 weeks is usually successful in eradicating H.Pylori and ppi medications like nexium or protonix treat inflammation. In my opinion probiotics aren't helpful in treating gastritis. ...Read more

Do (lactose free) probiotics help with gastritis? Also, do they provide any benefit for the elderly?

Do (lactose free) probiotics help with gastritis? Also, do they provide any benefit for the elderly?

Yes, esp. If...: Most cases of gastritis are caused by H. pylori. This is usually treated with antibiotics (though herbs like Mastic Gum can work as well). Probiotics are important for both helping to eliminate H. Pylori & for re-establishing healthy flora. Probiotics can be beneficial for people of any age as healthy flora is essential for good health.

How long does gastritis take to heal? Had it for 7 weeks now, been taking probiotics, zantac, (ranitidine) buscopan and eating fresh food and its getting worse

How long does gastritis take to heal? Had it for 7 weeks now, been taking probiotics, zantac, (ranitidine) buscopan and eating fresh food and its getting worse

Time for a change...: Zantac (ranitidine) in doses less than 100mg (otc dosing is 75mg) effectively inhibits basal & nighttime acid output by the stomach. However, food-stimulated acid production & tobacco/ nsaid/ alcohol injury may need bigger "guns." prescription-strength doses of zantac (ranitidine) are 150-300mg twice daily. Stop tobacco, nsaids, & drinking alcohol, & ask your doctor if time to switch medication or to get further testing. ...Read more

What is the best probiotic to take after being diagnosed with a doxycycline related disease (gastritis, gerds)?

Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. Look for a wide variety of strains of probiotics you choose. This is more important that the number or potency of the product. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is probiotics a goodthing to takeafter taking doxycycline? I developed gastritis n GERD. Heard probiotics repopulates bacteria. Any bad probiotic effects

Probiotics: Most people don't need probiotics after taking a course of antibiotics, since the normal bacterial flora of the gut repopulates rapidly after stopping antibiotics. If you have a history of C. difficile, it may be useful to take probiotics, however. Otherwise, studies do not support their routine use. Having said that, there are not usually many side effects, if you do decide to try them. Good luck ...Read more

Are all probiotic good or bad, which ones?

Sorry, but...: Probiotics are organisms, not "good or bad", that supplement your colonic flora. Peer review literature shows 1 in 4 patients treated are clinically improved with probiotics. Different probiotics benefit different symptoms.

It's unknown but unlikely to impact healing from either gastritis or esophagitis. On the other hand, your body needs proper nutrition to heal optimally, so I'd make sure the cause is properly treated medically rather than fasting. Hope this helps ...Read more

No problem: The study you refer to dealt with chronic gastritis and stomach cancer, not acute painful gastritis. Broccoli has super benefits. So unless you get immediate stomach discomfort whenever you eat broccoli, go right ahead and eat it. Hope that helps. ...Read more
