8 Juices For Combating Gastritis

8 Juices for Gastritis

If you have a feeling of discomfort after meals, loss of appetite, tenderness or abdominal pain in the stomach or worse – experience vomiting or nausea, then, you may have gastritis.

This health condition happens when your stomach’s lining gets swollen or inflamed. It can last for a short while like in the case of acute gastritis but this could lead to being chronic which can last for months or maybe years if not given proper attention to it.

The common causes could be derived from some pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs, too much alcohol intake, bile reflux, anemia, drug abuse, extreme stress, stomach infection brought about by helicobacter pylori, and many others.

Doctors may advise the use of antacids, proton pump inhibitors, or H2 antagonists in treating it but it is highly suggested that avoiding foods that could trigger it, or further the level of pain can help.

Foods to include and avoid in your diet to help aid with gastritis issues

  • Olive Oil

  • Fatty portions of red meat
  • ​Tomatoes
  • Peppers

Even though there are bland diet meals designed not to aggravate the ailment, drinking juices or smoothies that have cooling effect on the belly or abdomen like the ones below can aid in the process of treating gastritis.

2. Place the cinnamon stick in a glass and pour juice on top. Allow to steep for a few minutes or refrigerate the juice with the cinnamon stick until you want to consume it.

3. Always store juice in the smallest container possible with little or no air at the top so that the juice stays fresher for longer. Store up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Separation will occur, so shake before serving.

7. Apple Cucumber Celery Fennel Lime & Ginger

This green smoothie is filled with fiber-rich foods and a good alternative to your usual drink. Revitalize yourself with cucumbers, celery, and fennel with its diuretic properties.

Apple Cucumber Celery Fennel Lime & Ginger

Ingredients (all organic where possible): 

  • 5-6 small green Granny Smith apples (or equivalent)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 4-5 sticks celery (including the leaves)
  • 1-2 large handfuls of fennel (okay to include the stems)
  • 1/2 lime (make sure it’s organic or at least unwaxed and include seeds, peel, everything)
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger about 1 inch long

Method:

Slice cucumbers if necessary to fit into your juicer and juice, along with lime. Roughly chop the fennel, and celery if necessary (I find it helps prevent my Champion juicer from clogging up), and run celery through the juicer first. Remove apple steps and cut up the apples if necessary to fit into your juicer. Then use the apple to push the fennel and ginger through.

Drink as soon as possible after making. It’s nice over ice, at room temperature or refrigerated.

Makes about 1 litre/1 quart of juice.
