Botanical medicine for chronic gastritis.
The structure of the article:
Gastritis is an inflammatory process in the gastric mucosa. However, it is worth noting that, as a rule, chronic gastritis is combined with chronic duodenitis and cholecystopancreatitis (pathological process is rarely isolated).
90% of all gastritis are chronic, only in 10% of cases there is acute gastritis (more often with poisoning and occupational hazards).
Chronic gastritis for causes is divided into:
5%, type A — autoimmune
90%, type B — Helicobacter pylori
5%, type S — reflux – gastritis
The main causes of gastritis are:
1.The use of non-food, fast food, containing synthetic artificial additives.
2. Eating disorders.
3. Innate and constitutional features of the digestive tract.
The main symptoms of gastritis:
1.Feel full after a normal amount of food.
2.Bloating “belly”, mainly in the epigastrium, after eating in the usual amount.
3.Pain, epigastric discomfort when fasting or on an empty stomach,
4.Night pains in the epigastrium or in the morning before Breakfast.
5.Reduction or disappearance of pain in the epigastrium after eating and their reappearance after 2 or more hours.
Also, gastritis is isolated by acidity – hyperacid — with a predominance of acid in the gastric juice and hypoacid (with mucosal atrophy).
For comparison, we list the main methods of standard treatment of the most common types of gastritis.
Gastritis type B:
1. Proton pump blockers.
2.Preparations of bismuth
3. Antibacterial chemotherapy.
The main methods of treatment of gastritis type A and C:
1.Prokinetics (metoclopramide, domperidone, itopride does, trimebutine).
2.In the presence of Helicobacter pylori infection requires eradication antibiotic therapy, including antisecretory drugs.
3.Drugs salt cyclothiazide – pepsin or betaine hydrochloride. 4.Enzyme preparations.
5.Vitamin B12, folic K-TA.
Application submitted shemalenova during exacerbation of gastritis, but to prevent complications and exacerbations need to be supplemented. The fact is that the pharmacological principles of the appointment of some of these drugs are aimed at eliminating excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid, as well as to create a protective barrier (bismuth drugs), and antibacterial chemotherapy acts not only on pathogens, but also on the normal microflora, which leads to the appearance of dysbacteriosis.
Also, such a scheme can lead to a number of complications:
1.The absorption of micro and macronutrients from food is disturbed, the process of digestion is difficult.
2.Increasing the pH level in the stomach causes relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter and increases the intake of acidic contents into the esophagus. This can provoke an exacerbation of gastro-esophageal reflux.
3. Dysbacteriosis occurs as a result of antimicrobial therapy.
Thus, phytopreparation is necessary:
1)to reduce complications in antibacterial and antisecretory therapy regimens.
2) to prevent recurrence of the disease
1.Herbs with anti-inflammatory properties (canadian goldenrod, femur saxifrage, calendula, yarrow, St. John’s wort, volodushka, ginger, turmeric, elecampane).
Reducing the intensity of inflammatory changes in the mucosa performs two important functions — improves gastrointestinal motility, optimizes the secretory and motor function of the gastrointestinal tract.
It is important to Supplement the powder forms of medicinal herbs with three or four component infusions (it is better to change plants every 2 weeks).
2. Herbs that improve the regenerative processes of the mucous membrane (sea buckthorn fruits and leaves, elm, hodgepodge, duckweed, flax, chaga).
In this case, there is a repair of the mucosa, which is important in gastritis with pronounced dystrophic processes (eg, autoimmune).
3. The grass has oborachivaemosti (fillet aloe Vera, licorice naked, tsetrariya, Malva sylvestris, marshmallow, quince seeds). These herbs contain polysaccharides that not only protect the mucosa from aggressive stomach contents, but also promote mucosal regeneration.
4. Phytopreparations that enhance the secretory function of the gastrointestinal tract (St. John’s wort, air, trifoliate watch, dandelion, tansy ordinary).
