Treatment for Gastritis
Before we get into a treatment for gastritis—that is an all natural Homeopathy treatment for gastritis, let’s explore a more in-depth understanding of how gastritis comes about. We will start with a definition for both gastritis and the stomach, their nature, and the various types of gastritis (including some attributes and symptoms).
Gastritis and The Stomach Defined
The inflammation of the mucosa or the stomach lining is defined as Gastritis. A hollow muscular organ located in the upper left quadrant of the abdomen is called the stomach—a part of the digestive system. Connected to the esophagus Is the top part of the stomach, and the lower part of the stomach is attached to the duodenum. Lined with several layers of different tissues is the stomach wall. From the exterior to the interior are the layers—are serosa, mucosa, sub mucosa, and muscularis externa. A part of the peritoneum is the Serosa which is the outermost layer of the epithelial and connective tissue. The muscular is the externa next layer, that helps in mixing the food, churning, and propelling it towards the intestines by relaxing and contracting. The sub mucosa layer contains the lymphatics, the nerves, and the blood vessels. The mucosa, or the inner most layer, is a soft, smooth surfaced layer that contains gastric pits and gastric glands that have various cells that produce mucus (an enzyme named pepsinogen, hydrochloric acid and the gastric intrinsic factor which helps in absorbing vitamin B12). The mucus protects the stomach tissue from being damaged, eaten away, or corroded by its digestive secretions. The hydrochloric acid activates pepsinogen into pepsin to help in digesting proteins and kills micro organisms swallowed along with food.
Many factors expose the stomach tissue to harm by the strong acidic stomach secretions and disrupts the protective mucus barrier of the stomach resulting in the inflammation of the stomach lining or the mucosa and this is called gastritis.
The Nature and Types of Gastritis
Gastritis may be short term or acute or long term and chronic in nature. It can also be erosive or nonerosive. Only the stomach lining is inflamed in nonerosive gastritis. The mucus lining erodes, in erosive gastritis, which leads to ulcers, sores, or breaks in the stomach lining. When the gastric gland cells are destroyed due to long term inflammation and replaced by fibrous and intestinal tissue this is known as atrophic gastritis—and leads to the impairment of the production of pepsin, hydrochloric acid, and gastric intrinsic factor. Atrophic gastritis is either autoimmune in origin or the result of long term Helicobacter pylori infection.
Causes and Symptoms of Gastritis
Various factors can cause inflammation of the stomach and can lead to gastritis. The primary causes of Gastritis are a high alcohol consumption, injuries, Helicobacter pylori infection, excessive use of certain painkillers, excessive use of non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. Other factors for gastritis include smoking, stress, burns, and Crohn’s disease. A person suffering from autoimmune disorders like Type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto’s disease are prone to gastritis. Gastritis can cause ulcers and can increase the risk of developing cancer. For a full recovery, an early diagnosis is important.
