    Hello Maam,
    I have been suffering from gastritis for last 6 months. When it first flared up it was very bad and had to take prescription drugs for 3-4 months. Have now stopped taking them but still keep getting burning in the stomach several times. Any healthy solutions for it you can suggest?
