Attn: Dr KADWA - Gastritis Acute, GerdI was diagnosed with gastritis in the antrum and it has become acute The pain in the stomach has become severe, especially at night and in the mornings. When I eat, it does help but only temporarily. What do you suggest to help reduce the acidity and the pain which can get out of control at times as well as the acid reflux. It all seems to snow ball and once it gets out of control, starts irritable bowel symptoms. Since the acid reflux or the abdominal pain occurs more in the evening, it prevents me from getting enough sleep and energy deprived as a result. My appetite is low due the reflux and pain. If I take protonix and other anti-spasm medications, I get constipated and if I don't take anything and let the reflux and pain get out of hand, then the loose stools start as well as cramping before a bowel movement - but only when the problem gets severe.
About myself, I live in the US, 48 years old, about 96 lbs (thin). Theproblems started after I took some Chinese herbal teas to help with melasma (dark patches on the face) that appeared as my estrogen levels lowered. The herbal teas helped but provoked acid in my stomach which my doctor believes is what caused the gastritis. I take pepcid and protonix when I can, but don't have a good reaction to protonix. I also have bad pollen allergies during the month of September here in California and then they go away but the allergies did cause me to have asthma which flares up from time to time. I am being careful to watch all that I eat. I also read that taking hydrochloric acid pills help but they tend to irritate my stomach instead.
Please, I welcome your suggestions for what I should be taking.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.
Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
