inflammation of stomach lining, is manageable since it’s usually mild, and also
there are many ways to cope with. Even a few home remedies are often helpful
enough to soothe gastritis pain and relieve the inflammation more quickly. How
sweet in taste – 21 grams of honey (1 tablespoon) contain about 17 grams of
‘sweet’ properties such as sucrose, maltose, and fructose. It is also loaded
with a number of healthful properties such as antioxidants, antibacterial
properties, natural energy source (quite high in calories), minerals, vitamins,
essential amino acids, and trace enzymes [reference].
ancient times, people have used it as a natural medicine for various health
conditions. For examples, it may help soothe cough, regulate blood pressure,
prevent heart problems, boost athletic performance, prevent cancer, and many more.
Does it also help relieve gastritis?
well established that H. pylori infection has a role to increase the risk of
gastritis. This is especially true if you also have other risk factors of the
disease, such as;
use of NSAIDs (like ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen) that provoke stomach inflammation.
Excessive use of these pain medications may impair an essential substance that
helps protect your stomach lining.
older. As you age, your stomach lining is more likely to thin. Also, you tend
to have infections (including H. pylori infection) with age.
heavy drinking alcohol. Alcohol does have a role to erode the stomach lining.
Excessive alcohol use can increase the risk of gastritis and stomach ulcers.
medical conditions. Sometimes gastritis is a consequence of autoimmune condition
(when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy stomach cells), parasitic
infections, or Crohn’s disease.
stress, like after major surgery, burns, or injury.
honey has the power to help get rid of bacterial infections, because it has
some antibacterial properties, as mentioned earlier. For example, some studies
have shown that Manuka honey (a specific type of honey produced in New Zealand)
may help fight H. pylori. Some types of
honey may also work effectively to help treat salmonella and E. coli.
its antibacterial properties come from? As bees synthesize flower pollen,
hydrogen peroxide is deposited into the honey. This process causes honey become
naturally acidic, and also creates some powerful antimicrobic properties.
other honey health benefits that have been proved by science, which also might
help cope with your gastritis:
‘sweet’ contents in honey could be one of your excellent choices if you’re
looking for a time-released fuel to have energy over a longer duration. It is
better than sugar or glucose in boosting the staying power of athletic
endurance performance, according to studies funded by the National Honey Board.
This benefit can help you a lot if you experience fatigue caused by gastritis.
is not specific symptom of gastritis. But in a few cases, the condition could
be severe enough to affect your appetite. Other gastritis symptoms — such as
feeling of fullness, nausea, and vomiting — may also cause it more difficult
to eat normally, making tiredness (lack of energy) more likely!
have gastritis, it’s important to avoid foods that provoke upset stomach. The
common culprits are excessive consumption of dairy products, spicy, fatty, and
allergic reaction may make it more difficult to cope with gastritis. If you
have food allergies, for example, a mild reaction is probably enough to provoke
upset stomach. Having either one is uncomfortable enough – and if both your
gastritis and allergic reaction flare up, the challenges mount!
may also help ease allergy symptoms, especially locally produced honey that
contains flower pollen from local plants. When you take a teaspoon of honey per
day, theoretically this will introduce a small amount of allergen into your
body’s system and activate your body immune system. Over time, this may
eventually help build up your immunity against allergens. But if you’re
allergic to pollen, ask your doctor first!
that honey is worth a try if you’re looking for a natural remedy to help cope
with gastritis. But the remarkable substances from honey are not created equal!
processed honey — for example, is pasteurized and processed with high
temperatures. This causes the beneficial substances (including antibacterial
properties) drop significantly because they are heat-sensitive. Furthermore,
most commercial honey products are poor in bee pollen that contains high antioxidants
and amino acids.
other hand raw honey is the best choice, though it will likely be more
expensive. Raw means it is unprocessed (unheated) and unpasteurized, allowing
almost all of the remarkable substances remain.
adults and older children (over 1 year of age), raw honey is likely safe. But it
is possible unsafe for most infant and very young children [source].
honey has germ-fighting characteristics to help eliminate any bad organisms, a
few bacteria may survive using spores. This may cause botulism (food poisoning)
in infants given honey by mouth.
