Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you have like stomach bloating and uneasiness after eating are typically seen in people with gastric ulcers or gastritis of any severity.

The doctor you consulted has advised you the specific treatment, 15 days of the above medications will surely show much difference.Do continue the Kool -it Capsules for a period of 15 days , if symptoms persist the do take the same course of 15 days again after a gap of a week.

You may have to avoid the spicy foods, spice does stimulate stomach acid and worsen the gastritis.Having foods less in fat and spice will surely help you get rid of the acidity.Do consume a lots of XXXXXXX leafy vegetables which will reduce the bloating sensation in the stomach.Consumption of the fruits specially after food in the night will reduce the acid in the stomach.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Thanks for writing back.

Do not restrict your food consumption to liquids, do consume solid foods adequately.

Lessening the food intake can worsen the acidity.

Red chillies are fine but less the better.

Yes, avoiding oil foods is for good.Oil stimulates bile and other enzymes in the stomach which can cause increased acid output.

Yes, you can have butter milk with salt..

Restriction of spice and oily foods is what all you need to do.

Hope I cleared your doubts.

Both Coffee and Tea can worsen the gastritis,You may have to quit slowly.

Yes, you can have carrot,beetroot but less onions.None of them cause any problem to the gastritis you have.
