Causes of Gastritis
What Gastritis Is and How it Develops

Gastritis is an inflammation of the mucosal lining of the stomach; the exact cause depends on the type of gastritis. There are several known causes such as poor or imbalanced diet, a weakening of the immune system brought about by smoking or alcohol abuse as well as lasting and unresolved stress. Stress creates the ideal conditions for gastritis. Abdominal pain (i.e. belly pain or stomach ache) and pain behind the sternum (in the centre of the chest), which are often misdiagnosed as occurring for some other reason are some of the primary symptoms of gastritis. Another symptom is abdominal pain that improves after eating and then later returns, perhaps even more severely. Furthermore, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting can all be signs of gastritis.

The timing and duration of the condition are the factors which allow one to differentiate between acute gastritis and chronic gastritis. Bentomed from fangocur provides quick, dependable and lasting relief.

Acute gastritis
Acute gastritis is a painful inflammation of the lining of the stomach which occurs suddenly and may involve bleeding of the stomach mucosa. This is due to damage to the tissue caused by the stomach's own acid. The bleeding normally lasts no more that 24 hours after the dramatically increased level of digestive fluid secretions settles down. The bacteria Helicoacter pylori accounts for 90% of cases of acute gastritis.

Chronic gastritis
Older people tend to suffer more frequently with chronic gastritis. Chronic gastritis involves the long-term inflammation of the mucosal lining of the stomach. This inflammatory condition of the upper digestive system can last for years. There are many possible causes, though in 90% of all patients who suffer with chronic gastritis the Helicobacter pylori bacteria is the primary culprit.

Under the larger category of chronic gastritis, there are several subtypes having different causes:

Type A gastritis has a large genetic component (i.e. it runs in families) and primarily affects the body and fundus of the stomach. It is also sometimes called auto-immune gastritis. In this type of gastritis, the parietal cells which are responsible for the production of acid are attacked, which can in advanced cases lead to complete deterioration of the stomach lining. A particular form of anaemia can also result due to an interruption in the absorption of vitamin B12.

Type B gastritis accounts for 80% of all gastritis cases. It is primarily caused by pathogens like bacteria, viruses or alcohol. In 90% of cases of type B gastritis, there is one primary cause: the Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Only rarely, mostly in people with an otherwise compromised immune system, is there a different cause. 

Type C gastritis accounts for about 10% of all gastritis cases. The cause is an internal irritation, for example bile from the gall bladder may enter the stomach following an operation to partially resect the stomach or a hiatal hernia is surgically repaired. In addition, the effects of certain chemicals can cause this type of gastritis, for example medications which irritate the stomach, food poisoning, excessive alcohol or smoking. Generally this type of gastritis can be quickly resolved once one determines and eliminates the cause.

Research has revealed that there are two additional types of gastritis. Type D includes several special forms of gastritis such as Crohn's disease (regional enteritis) or collagen gastritis. Type R gastritis is normally caused by heartburn which through complications can lead to Barrett's oesophagus. 

The recommendation: treat the causes of the gastritis and prevent the condition from developing using Bentomed from fangocur

The natural healing power of volcanic healing can be used to improve our health. The Gossendorf fango healing clay has both adsorptive (i.e. binding) and absorptive qualities. For internal applications such as when drinking fangocur Bentomed, the binding or adsorptive characteristics are most important. The toxins and gas produced by bacteria which live in the human gut are collected by the clay particles and passed in the stool. The contents of fango healing clay inhibit inflammation, encourage normal metabolism and kill harmful bacteria (anti-microbial). That's why Bentomed from fangocur is so effective in the treatment of gastritis and ulcers of the digestive tract.

The fango healing clay is effective in treating many following digestive conditions

Effective for (according to a medical/balneological study conducted by the Physiology Department of the Vienna Medical University under the direction of Dr. W. Marktl, 2006): chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining), duodenal ulcers, peptic ulcers, chronic enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine), colitis (chronic inflammatory bowel disease).
