sorry to hear this. the tummy in the initial stages of healing is more sensitive and also a little more challenged to deal with a change from the simpler foods. but day by day i hope that you are gaining healing traction. the body knows how to heal given the tools
i am amazed how tender the stomach is after a bacterial onslaught with Helicobacter and the resulting gastritis or gastritis from other causes. it is far more severe than say a bug in the colon or intestines in my own experience with how your digestion is compromised and pain (the damage impacts where we create our digestive juices and also impacts pancreas and gallbladder and also has less protective mucus coating against the stomach acid) . (yes sadly i can compare - but the infections in the intestines and colon seem to trigger more chronic fatigue type stuff and in the body symptoms).
keep working on the plain simple foods; dont be afraid of a little brown rice, cooked gluten free oats, gluten free grains and roots as they are much less acidic and stimulating on the digestive system when added to gently cooked veg.
the following to may be too harsh - tomato, cooked tomato, raw veg, acidic veg including even apple and some berries, citrus, large portions of juices, sports drinks, black coffee, too much coffee, a lot of dairy or fats, larger protein portions. even ginger and spices can be irritant.
so keep it plain and simple and with time the gastro system will heal up. i prob need to get more herbs to you. i have been awol i apologise. awol from everyone. i have needed the time. still cant quite believe the health mess. given i was super healthy! Ive to see the specialist next week; not sure why so soon guess i will find out.
aloe, marshmallow root, fennel seeds and fenugreek are handy (i put the seeds in a loose tea holderand make tea and add slippery elm and rose buds to make it taste ok) i have also ground up the seeds and sprinkle them on veg. i am doing all i can!! motivation is to feel well
