probiotics for 3 days.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting the query.
Gastritis presents with indigestion, regurgitation of food, burning sensation in the upper abdomen.
But the gas is due to increased bacterial growth in the gut which is mostly cause of increased carbohydrate intake.
1)Have any probiotic drink for 3-5 days you may feel better.
In my practice I prescribe sporolac powder to be mixed in 1 glass of water 3 times daily for 3 days.
2) Have plenty of fibers in your diet.
3) Have 8 -10 glasses of water per day.
4) Do not have areated drinks like soda and colas.

TAKE CARE.
