Hi,thanks for query.At his age some times due to some enzyme deficiency or other wise there is increase in the production of acid and this leads to problem.The best thing to do is first go for endoscopy by gastroenterologist in your city.This will help us in diagnosing some ulcer or other things.After that he will prescribe a course of drugs that will definitely help him.Avoid any pain killer drugs,ask him to take light diet and regular diet,do not sleep for couple of hours after meals and take proper rest.He should be fine with this.bye.

Welcome to HCM forum
Gastritis is common for this age. Avoid taking oily. Spicy. Junk food.drink plenty of water. Milk and fruits are good for gastritis. After taking food just walk for 10 mins. Or you can give syrup gelusil.

hi amit saha
welcome to gealth care magic
gastritis diet- milk and dairy products will need to be limited, often to only 2-3 times a day, as they can increase the acid secretions in your stomach. It is wise with to choose foods that are low fat, as these will help to control the production of acid in your stomach.make sure that you are getting adequate amounts of fiber for your system
avoidance of caffeine products such as coke, coffee and cocoa.and also alcohol should be avoid
Last but not least, your gastritis diet needs to include 6-8 glasses of water a day as well as some low acid fruit drinks.
good luck

Dear Amit saha

In ayurveda we recommend use of Kamdughdha ras avipatikar churan and chitrak vati.

Kamdughdha is antacid and avipatikar is slight laxative and antacid and chitrak relieves pain and cures gastritis.
