No H-Pylori... Very minor Focal Intestinal Metaplasia... How can I reverse the very early stages of this? I do eat a fair amount of sodium in foods. I could cut down on that. I also drink a lot of soda and caffeine.

The risk of neoplasia is still low when an isolated finding, but bears watching. Aside from treatment of helicobacter, other interventions are not known to reverse the change.
