I have been diagnosed with mild chronic gastritis with H pylori 2+. I am under medical treatment. Apart from milk, the doctor has advised me to avoid consuming wheat products also. Please suggest an appropriate diet keeping my condition in mind. Answered by Nutritionist Neha Chandna.
You need to eat small meals every 2-3 hours so that there is not too much load on the digestive system. Opt more for simple foods like fruits, boiled veggies, green leafy vegetables, and lean meats like fish, egg whites. Haveantioxidant-rich foods like carrots, cranberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, beet, etc to fight against the H pylori infection.
Drink plenty of water, coconut water, green tea. You can also have a concoction of saunf, jeera andajwain to help relieve symptoms. Curd is also good as it has probiotics which help in digestion.
Avoid refined foods made of maida, bakery foods, sweets, fried and processed foods. Also, avoid coffee, tea, carbonated beverages and alcohol as they can worsen the symptoms. Exercise daily for 30 minutes, even yoga is a great option.
