The Truth and How Can One Prevent Gastritis


if you have no clue what gastritis is, its the inflammation in the stomach lining causing issues within the indigestion system and pain one cannot bare. Gastritis can occur out of nowhere and happen when the body is full of alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen (NSAIDS) and unhealthy foods such as those with too much grease and fat. There are also two types of conditions such as ACUTE and CHRONIC gastritis. Acute is very sudden and can be triggered when an individual is taking many medication and one too many on a empty stomach. This can also happen when someone is eating uncontrollably. Chronic is on going like a never ending cycle unless you own up to your causes and change your lifestyle. The things that triggers Chronic is consuming too much alcohol, stress, fatty foods, NSAIDS, bacteria and even tobacco. Both conditions are not easy to handle and although a very few individuals may not get any symptoms... in the end their lining from within will still be inflamed.
