Antral Gastritis

After endoscopic examination I have been diagnosed with severe antral gastritis.
It may be noted that I have been passing dark tar like stool for quite long and always was suffering from bloated stomach.
Please help as I wish to avoid taking allopathy medicines for this ailment.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please copy the report of your Endoscopic examination when you were diagnosed with Antral Gastritis. Did your doctor make any mention of Helicobacter Pylori which may have been identified in your tests?

If you have passed Black Stools your case can be considered as Chronic. This can indicate that you have suffered for some years with your problem which has grown progressively worse with internal bleeding in the Antrum resulting in black stools.

I would like to have more details of how long you have suffered from your condition and what your doctors have advised. Have they suggested surgery?

Please complete the Patient's Questionnaire on:

Sir the report includes photographs, I don't know how do I scan it and send it to you as the limit of attachments is limited on this site. The snapshot clearly show redness in the antral region. The reports of the doctor mentions only antral gastritis. You are right I have a long history of stomach related diseases. I had constipation till my youth. I seem to have got this(antral gastritis) problem in the year 1997 when I took a truck journey on indian roads. I remember passing dark and sticky stool for quite long. I must confess that I was quite negligent in my observations so I really cannot point out when it got better and under what circumstances. It did get better. I also used to pass mucous in stool till last few years. I was treated with homeopathy medicines(medicine not known) for pilestoo. This particular treatment was successful. The doctor has suggested medicine lafaxid and mucamegel. Surgery not considered necessary. Would you mind if I scan the report and send it on your email id.

This is the list of additional information.

Let me start you off with my default therapy for Gastritis or GERD. I shall copy it below and if you respond positively in a few days, usually in 48 hours you may continue with it. Otherwise I shall indicate other remedies to help you.

I would like to have your reports sent to my email address in my ID

I shall copy the therapy I have prescribed to hundreds of patients who presented GERD, the large majority of whom have been cured.

Your remedies are as follows:

Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

You can expect relief from your ailment hopefully within 24 hours.
Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall when you will experience a stomach ache which in some cases can be very acute.

You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

Please visit the links below which record the cases of other patients whom I have treated for GERD.




STOP using all other drugs and report progress in a week.
Joe De Livera last decade
Sir I have mailed you the report. I request you to have a look at them and give an opinion. I really suffer a lot from acidity.
arvindprasad last decade
Thank you for the pictures of your stomach.

I cannot read the names of the drugs your doctor has prescribed as his writing is illegible. Can you translate it for me or copy his prescription ?

There is nothing more that I can suggest right now except for what I have prescribed in my last post to you.

Start on my therapy and report your response in 24 hours and daily after.

One point that I failed to advise you is to NOT indulge in overeating. I noticed that you stated:

'I am obese and have a flabby body. There is a lot of fat on the chest as compared to

I have a special craving for rice.

You may like to know that the remedy Nat Phos 6x I have prescribed will reduce your weight by around 1kg per week.

You will also cooperate by exercising for at least an hour on a daily basis as I cannot help you with Homeopathic remedies alone.
Joe De Livera last decade
The medicines that the doctor has prescribed are
Syrup:Mucaine Gel.
I do an hour of yogasana everyday, which includes rigorous stretching. After yoga I feel much better. I was a regular user of nat phos and followed your GERD regime for quite some time but received limited result. However I will give it a weeks try from today and get back with the results. Till then I will stop the allopathy line of treatment.
Thanks for the advise. I am indebt of you

How many tablets of Nat Phos did you take after a meal?
Joe De Livera last decade
I used to take four tablets of Nat Phos 6x after meals.
arvindprasad last decade
Add Robina Pseudacacia 3c to be taken in the Wet dose thrice daily.

This is in addition to the remedies prescribed.

It is understood that you will not take any other drugs.
Joe De Livera last decade
Getting 3c is difficult, it is common to get 30c and above dilutions. Can I use 30c dilution?
arvindprasad last decade
This remedy must be used in the low potencies to be of any effect.

You may be able to get it from:

The Homeopathic Center
100 First Floor
Dr Muthulakshmi Salai
Opp Nerct Electronics
Chennai 20

009144 24404393
Joe De Livera last decade
Rang up The homeopathic center at chennai. They dont stock potencies as low as 3c. Any alternatives. 30c is readily available. I contacted SBL and they said that sending 3c is not possible. In mumbai there is no one who dilutes from mother tincture.
arvindprasad last decade
Here are 2 more addresses of suppliers:

The Zorastrian Pharmacy
600 J S S Road
Chira Bazaar
Next to Wadia's Fire Temple
Mumbai 400 002

Homoeopathy clinic
2, Commercial complex
Shrestha vihar,


As a last resort ask for the 6c potency.

The 30c in not effective and I am copying proof below that it is the low potencies that are effective from the Homeopathic master who lived about 150+ years ago, William BOERICKE, M.D.

Yellow Locust

The remedy for hperchlorhydria. In cases where albuminoid digestion is too rapid and starch digestion is perverted. The gastric symptoms with the most pronounced acidity are well authenticated, and are the guiding symptoms. The acidity of Robinia is accompanied by frontal headache. Intensely acrid eructations. Acrid and greenish vomiting, colic and flatulence, nightly burning pains in stomach and constipation with urgent desire.--Acidity of children. Stools and perspiration sour. Incarcerated flatus.

Head.--Dull, throbbing, frontal pain; worse, motion and reading. Gastric headache with acid vomiting.

Stomach.--Dull, heavy aching. Nausea; sour, eructations; profuse vomiting of an intensely sour fluid (Sulph ac). Great distention of stomach and bowels. Flatulent colic (Cham; Diosc). Sour stools; child smells sour.

Female.--Nymphomania. Acrid, fetid leucorrhœa. Discharge of blood between menstrual periods. Herpes on vagina and vulva.

Relationship.--Magnes phos; Arg nit; Orexine tannate. (Hyperchlorhydria; deficient acid and slow digestion; 14 hourly doses)

Dose.--Third potency. Must be continued a long time.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks I will try to get it today. I'll will go to chira bazaar today itself and check if the medicine is available.
arvindprasad last decade
I have got robinia pseudacacia 3c finally. I guess the procedure of preparing wet doses is the same as arnica. And the dosage is twice a day. Correct me incase its something different.
arvindprasad last decade
Glad to note that you have finally got the Robinia P 3c.

Follow my therapy for the Wet dose and take it twice daily half hour before meals.
Joe De Livera last decade
I have started taking wet dose of robinia 3c before meals. I have found that my appetite has reduced and I eat lesser for. Overeating has stopped. But the problem of acidity post meal remains the same. I take nat phos 6x four tab a half hour after meals. Still it persists. I also have a choking feeling in my throat.
Thanks for all the help given so far.
arvindprasad last decade
Taking the Nat Phos half hour after a meal is not as effective as taking it immediately after or with your meal.

You mentioned overeating. This can also be a causative factor in your Gastritis. Read my first post with the prescription where I recommended that you do not overeat but you may eat often. Overeating overloads your stomach and this results in gastric juice refluximg to your throat and causing you distress.

Read all my instructions and follow them literally.
Joe De Livera last decade
I have read the gerd therapy. From that I have gathered that I have to take
Nat Phos 6x twice daily immediately after meals.
Arnica 30C wet doses taken twice daily anytime during the day atleast 30 min before or after have anything.

Besides I should be taking Robinia 3c thrice a day.

If all this is right then lets see the progress from today for a week.

I still get a lot of acidity after I eat anything. This I guess is the chief symptom.

From what I could read about Robinia I guess its going to take time for the acidity to cure up.
Thanks for the patient follow up and advices.
arvindprasad last decade
The problems for which a remedy are being given, should be noticeably better within 1-2 weeks of starting a remedy. While full cure can take longer, you will know if the remedy is correct much sooner.

Signs of a correctly prescribed medicine are general improvements in mood, energy, sleep, appetite,generaly bodily comfort as well as noticeable positive changes in the main symptoms. Many minor symptoms in unrelated parts of the body should also improve.

You may experience aggravations of your symptoms, as well as a return of an old symptom, all of which can still happen on the correct remedy.

New symptoms however are a sign that the prescription was not correct, or that the dose is too large or frequent.

'Besides I should be taking Robinia 3c thrice a day.'

Why thrice when I prescribed TWICE?

You may increase the Nat Phos up to 6 tablets per dose to antidote your acidity.
Joe De Livera last decade
In your post you mentioned it as thrice. Never mind I'll take it twice. I'll take Nat Phos six tabs. Thanks.

To David

That was QUICK !!!

It took you just a few minutes to barge in with your pompous pontifications which do not serve to help my patient in any way.

I do not agree with your statement:
'You may experience aggravations of your symptoms, as well as a return of an old symptom, all of which can still happen on the correct remedy.'

I HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED THIS PHENOMENON WITH THE WET DOSE. You are advised to follow my example and use it for ALL your patients in the future as it is by far more potent than the dry pellets you have been taught to use up to now.

You are advised NOT to interfere with the Joepathy I have prescribed to my patient on this thread as his case is far more complicated than the standard cases of GERD I have treated which you can read about here on the ABC.

I still awaite your reply to my query on the Sanam thread where I asked you a direct question.

Would you have dared to prescribe a Homeopathic remedy to this girl who was diagnosed with TB of her Lymph Gland.

Also the other question: Have you CURED any cases of TB with Homeopathic remedies? Proof?

Did you know that Chopin DIED of TB ? He may have used Homeopathy but unfortunately to no avail.

You may like to know that he is my favourite composer and I once played his Polonaise in A Flat Opus 53 at a local concert.
