AYURVEDIC TREATMENT for CHRONIC GASTRICS
Our Stomach lining, or mucosa, has glands that produce stomach acid and other important compounds. One example is the enzyme pepsin. While your stomach acid breaks down food and protects you from infection, pepsin breaks down protein. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to damage your stomach. So, your stomach lining secretes mucus to protect itself. Chronic gastritis occurs when your stomach lining becomes inflamed. Bacteria, consuming too much alcohol, certain medications, chronic stress, or other immune system problems can lead to inflammation.Due to nflammation, stomach lining changes and loses some of its protective cells. It may also cause early satiety. This is where your stomach feels full after eating just a few bites of food.

This heating ama gets accumulated in the body and increases the levels of gases in the stomach, causing the condition of Gastritis. gets accumulated in the body and increases the levels of gases in the stomach, causing the condition of Gastritis.
