Has anyone ever had any success with Herbal supplements for Gastritis relief.  I had an endoscopy in mid December which revealed minor Gastritis and a minor Hiatal Hernia.  However, recently the symptoms have been extremely uncomfortable.  I've had extreme bloating/pressure in my stomach and chest with shortness of breath and almost constant gas.  I'm currently taking Aciphex which has relieved the heartburn I was having but I still have these other really uncomfortable symptoms.  I found many different herbal remedies out there on the internet.  I found this one which was extremely expensive ($300 for 2 months worth).  If I knew it would work, I'd buy it in a second.
 
 
Anybody have any luck with any thing like this.  Thanks.

NDV80,
There are sooooo many things out there you can try, it's just ridiculous. Don't bother spending this money. First of all, you have no idea whether you are allergic to any of these herbal remedies or not.
Look back on all the postings on DGL licorice, that is the one thing that helped me and others on this site.
Nothing else helped.

I think that if you get allergy tested, then you would have an idea if you'd be allergic to the herbs.  Still, I do agree that 300 dollars is excessive.

I try DGL licorice and it doesn't work for me.  But it is cheaper and maybe someday it'll work for me.  who knows...

Yeah, I'm probably not gonna spend that much money on something that i don't know if it'll work or not. Today, i decided to try fasting except for drinking only coconut water. I read a few places that that is good for gastritis and I've had a much better day today then I've had over the last 2 weeks. My plan is to gradually each day build my diet back up again. Only concern is that there are so many foods I love that right now Wreck Havoc on my stomach. Does Gastritis tend to heal with treatment or does your stomach lining stay permanently damaged?

Friendlygal,
Did you give DGL a chance to work? I only had GERD symptoms for about 1 month and it took me a month using DGL very consistently along with being very strict with food and very small portions many times a day to get results.
Maybe you just didn't stick with it long enough.

NDV80,
You just have to forget about the food you love to get over GERD. I just don't get it, if you're suffering why would you care about all the food you want to eat. Just eat nutritiously for a while and heal your esophagus. There's enough information on this site for you too use to do so. Research back, I've posted enough things that I did to help myself cure my esophagus.
You will eventually return to foods that you love but for heavens sake, give up alot of things or else you will be in the drug after drug circle that many people seem to be in.
Good luck.

DANIE, yes I am giving DGL licorice a chance.  I've been taking chewables, 20 minutes before each meal.  Mine can't dissolve so I chew them and saliva is definitely formed.  I will keep trying.  But, please keep in mind that although you swear by it's efficacy, there is a possibility that not everything you tried will work for someone else (even someone who is as diligent as me).  But thanks for your posts, I always like learning from you...
