I had an endoscopy done back in 2007 and was told that I had gastritis and my doctor proceeded t write out a prescription for Omeprazole I automatically informed her not to waste her ink and paper because there was no way in hell that I was going to take any medicine because at that time I had read a lot about synthetic medicines that will relieve you of one thing but create 10 other problems with the side effects etc. Also I am fully aware that the pharmaceutical companies are not in the business of curing people because that doesn't continue to generate money but treating illnesses does. Anyhow I looked at the doctor very seriouly and told her I am sorry doc but I wont take any medicines could you please tell me of something that is natural that I can take to get rid of this problem and she took a deep breath and told me Aloe, I was stunned that she answered my question. I left there and at that time I happened to be vacation in Peru and went to my next door neighbor who happened to had a natural medines and juice stand and every morning for one month I would drink my fresh aloe at first it was difficult I gagged the first time because it is mocus like but it does not taste bad there are no side effects and I was cured after about a month and came back home to the US and have not had a problem for over 5 years until a couple of months ago because I've been eating bad and gained a lot of weight so currently I am drinking it once again for 4 days now and are already starting to feel the benefits.
You need to buy the stalk or however you call it and cut about 4 fingers wide and soak it overnight for at least 8 hours so tha it releases impurities, what I do if I cut off a piece off of the top, bottom and off of the sides so that it exposes the gel material so that it realeases the impurities easier. In the morning you rinse it then cut it open and scrape off the gel, the green part is not to be eaten, I presonally use a knife scraping it back and forth and it kind of comes out like egg white then drink it on an empty stomach, this is to be done first thing in the morning before eating anything, be aware that this will also work as a mild laxative. For more info google Aloe Vera and gastritis and you will find tons of info on it and see how many people have benefit from it. Well good luck.
