    Eat Small and Frequent Meals

    Since gastritis is a problem associated with the stomach, it is always recommended to eat small meals to ease the stomach. A heavy meal can make your gastritis more uncomfortable. Also avoid irritating food like lactose and gluten from your diet.

    Gastritis can be effectively treated with the use of medicines that contain antacids and other drugs to reduce stomach acid. The acid would otherwise cause further irritation to inflamed areas. It is also recommended to avoid medicines like Aspirin and NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) during gastritis.
