Stomach Problems, Gastritis  & Digestion

Stomach problems from bad digestionAn "Itis" anywhere in the body means inflammation. Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach.  

This inflammation results in the destruction of the upper layer of cells of the stomach lining.    Erosion of this protective layer opens the underlying layers of the stomach vulnerable to damage - from the enzymes and acid of the stomach itself which can effect gastric functions. 

Gastritis has many causes. Recent research has found that the majority of cases is due to bacteria which grows in the mucous secreting cells of the lining. Chronic gastritis develops gradually and can come from certain drugs that irritate the stomach lining (especially the non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSIDs) as well as infections both bacterial and viral.

But gastritis is actually a symptom, not a disease. Stomach problems are all symptoms of an unhealthy digestive system..  Finding out the cause of this problem and you will be able to treat it.

Here are some symptoms of digestive problems:

  • Bowel movements less than two times a day

  • Embarrassing gas or cramping

  • Straining or having time to read while sitting on the toilet

  • Relying on store-bought laxatives or stool softeners

  • Poop that’s hard, ball-shaped, stringy, covered in mucus or is yellowish or greenish

  • Having to wipe more than once after going to the bathroom

  • A protruding stomach that feels heavy all the time
