In treating gastritis, it is important to address the possible harmful relationship between the protective mechanisms of the stomach and the acid it produces.The deeper causes of the gastritis must be determined and a means found to improve one's overall heath in order to encourage healing of the gastritis. Even after the gastritis is successfully eliminated, attention should still be given to keeping the digestive system working well.
It's advisable to eat a good diet both during the treatment of the gastritis or after the stomach condition is resolved, as this is crucial in limiting the advancement of the gastritis. Take vitamins regularly, in particular vitamin B12, and reduce intake of nicotine and alcohol. It's also very beneficial to regularly detoxify the digestive tract using teas, natural spring-produced mineral water or healing clay (e.g. fangocur Bentomed).
Conventional treatments for gastritis
Gastritis is an inflammation of the mucosal lining of the stomach which results from confusion between the amount and nature of the stomach acid produced and the protective mechanisms of the stomach. This imbalance can have many causes, for example bacteria, excessive production of stomach acid, weakening of the stomach lining, etc.
The treatment for the gastritis depends on its cause. Normally the approach of conventional medicine includes one or more of the following:
- Administration of medications which inhibit stomach acid (e.g. proton pump inhibitors, acid neutralizing antacids, H2 receptor antagonists)
- Combating of the Helicobacter pylori bacteria via so-called "eradication protocols" (administration of a proton pump inhibitor and two different antibiotics)
- Protecting the health of the stomach of the patient by replacing any medications (such as pain relievers) which might harm the stomach
- Medications which increase the activity of the digestive system (known as prokinetics), compensating for weak or inactive muscle action which hinders normal stomach emptying and peristalsis
- Administration of vitamin B12
- Nutritional modifications/change in diet
Theses measures are taken depending on the cause(s) and type of gastritis, and may be used in combination – a physician determines the optimal course of treatment for each patient. Especially for the treatment of type B gastritis, in addition to the antacid the doctor may prescribe an antibiotic in order to eliminate the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, a primary cause of stomach inflammation. For type C gastritis, the first line of attack in normally to reduce the intake of toxins such as drugs, nicotine and alcohol. It's common for all gastritis sufferers to be advised to include a vitamin B12 supplement.
In all cases of gastritis, it's important to take the condition seriously and treat it. This requires the dedicated cooperation of the sufferer if the treatment is to be successful. Living conditions must be seriously evaluated, and in all cases a balanced diet is advisable. If the gastritis is left untreated or the changes in lifestyle (diet, smoking, alcohol intake, etc.) are not adhered to, the inflammation of the stomach lining can become chronic and can lead to the development of ulcers in the stomach. An ulcer is an abscess in the wall of the stomach.
In order to avoid the problem becoming so serious, we advise that you also use natural methods to treat the condition. These are beneficial as they have no side effects and do not interfere with the effectiveness of conventional treatments.
A supplemental natural treatment for gastritis can be crucial in effectively resolving the condition
A remedy well-known in medical circles, sometimes given as a secret tip for treating gastritis as well as other digestive disorders, is natural fango healing clay. This is not a spa treatment – it's a medically recognized therapy. In order to achieve success in treating gastritis, it's important that the fango healing clay is the purest available, that it's very concentrated and is rich in trace elements. Bentomed from fangocur meets all of these important requirements.
Treatment, and prevention of the causes of gastritis, peptic ulcers with Bentomed
How it works
Bentomed contains Gossendorf Fango, a volcanic healing clay found only in south-eastern Austria which has undergone scientific study. The effectiveness of this healing clay in the treatment of gastritis as well as other disorders of the digestive system has been approved through medical/balneological study conducted by the Vienna Medical University (under the supervision of Dr. W. Marktl, 2006). The fango healing clay has both adsorptive (i.e. binding) and absorptive qualities.
The adsorptive or binding characteristics of healing clay
When taken internally to treat inflammations such as gastritis, peptic ulcers and ulcerative colitis, the adsorptive quality of the healing clay is most important. The natural gut bacteria can produce toxins (poisons) which act to hinder normal nerve function of the smooth muscle of the intestines, and these are bound by the healing clay. Additionally the accumulation of gases which can harm the intestinal tract and thus the entire body through the transfer of poisonous intestinal gases into the bloodstream is limited.
The anti-inflammatory qualities of healing clay
The ingredients of healing clay such as sulphur and minerals have an anti-inflammatory effect, improve the metabolism and kill harmful bacteria (antimicrobial). These are some additional reasons why Bentomed from fangocur is so effective in the treatment of gastritis and ulcers of the digestive system. If you're already taking medication, Bentomed can be used to enhance your current treatment allowing you to more quickly reduce the amount of medication you're taking – that means a higher quality of life.
Bentomed from fangocur is recommended for the following conditions: chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining), duodenal ulcers, peptic ulcers, chronic enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine), colitis (chronic inflammatory bowel disease) - or simply as a preventative measure via detoxification and purification of the digestive system.
A half teaspoon of fangocur Bentomed twice per day (mornings and evenings) for 3 weeks can restore the natural balance in the stomach and intestinal tract. The high-fibre effect of Bentomed helps to regulate and normalise the passing of food through the stomach and so effectively counters the gastritis. After the condition is resolved, we recommend that you pause for a week and then repeat the 3 week treatment.
For the treatment of gastritis, gastric ulcers or ulcerative colitis, or simply as a preventative via its normalising effects on the digestion, try a fangocur Bentomed treatment
The powdered healing clay found in Bentomed contains pure fango healing volcanic clay. It's all-natural and contains no chemical additives. There are no side effects. The healing clay powder is carefully processed and is not heated – that ensures that the natural ingredients of the clay are of the highest quality. The healing effects of fango healing clay have been proven by a medical/balneological study conducted by the Medical University of Vienna.
Fango healing clay (taken internally) is becoming more and more recognized in the treatment of various inflammatory conditions of the stomach and intestines because of the many positive results. It can also be used as a preventative due to its detoxifying effects. There are two ways to use Bentomed in the treatment of inflammation related to gastritis and stomach ulcers: as a mild or concentrated healing clay drink.
To prepare a more mild healing clay drink, wait a bit after preparing the Bentomed drink and give the sediment a chance to settle out. Do not stir again before drinking so as not to disturb the healing clay sediment – it remains on the bottom of the glass. This method is especially suitable for those who frequently suffer from constipation. It's advisable to start slowly with the mild programme as the digestive system may need to become accustomed to the fango healing clay and the digestive activity to more slowly adjust.
If you prefer a more concentrated form of Bentomed, simply stir it again before drinking and also drink the healing clay sediment. To improve the taste, feel free to use herbal tea instead of water. Start with 1/4 teaspoon and then slowly increase to 1/2 teaspoon – this allows your digestive system to adjust to the new level of activity.
Try different variations of the Bentomed from fangocur until you find the healthy effects that suit you best.
Bentomed from fangocur is a comprehensive treatment for gastritis and helps the body to reach a normal digestive balance.
If you're already taking prescription medication, we do not recommend that you discontinue its use. Instead, use the fangocur Bentomed drink in addition to the treatment advised by your physician. Bentomed has absolutely no side effects, but should in such cases be used an hour or more before or after you take your prescribed medication. This is due to the powerful detoxifying effect of the fango clay.
