If you have a gastrointestinal disorder such as stomach or gastritis ulcer, this is the diet for you. If you use this diet along with medications for this problem, you may eliminate the problem successfully. The peptic ulcers or gastritis ulcers are located in the stomach lining or in the first part of the intestine named duodenum, though they can also be created in theesophagus.
This problem can be present among people of all age and sex. The hydrochloric acid is main cause of this problem. It can destroy or cause inflammation of the intestinal or gastritic mucosal lining of the stomach, which will lead to gastritic ulcers. This effect of the hydrochloric acid can be created due to the helicobacter pylori bacteria inflammation, the infection which is created because of the intake of contaminated water or food, or poor eatinghabits.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, stress, alcohol and cigarettes can also create this problem. When the problem is present, it will create gnawing and burning sensation in the stomach, indigestion, and heartburn. In the following text we will give you a diet that can reduce these problems.
