Has any one ever used glutamine to help heal gastritis. And how do you quit PPIs and not get gastritis. My diagnosis is small hiatal hernia and gastritis. Been like this for 3 years, nexium helped but it's too expensive now and went to omeprozole which doesn't work well. I'm on Zantac and dgls, slippery elm, and mastic gum. Just wondering if swines tried glutamine for stomach healing.

The best thing to help heal gastritis is liquid carafate.

Gastritis has many causes. Infection with Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium that causes most ulcers, is the most common cause of acute gastritis. The condition can also be triggered by any substances that irritate the stomach lining. These include anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and arthritis medications, particularly when these drugs are used over the long term. Many other prescription and over-the-counter medications may also irritate the stomach lining, as can tobacco smoke, alcohol, and foods that you have trouble digesting.

Most cases of gastritis are mild and require no attention. However, contact your physician if abdominal pains accompanied by fever or nausea persist and do not respond to self-care measures within 24 hours, or if there is any blood in your vomit.
 
Aloe Vera Juice  or Gel are helpful for many people.

Contact your physician immediately if stomach pain becomes severe.
