According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), gastritis is a problem that affects more than 2 million people worldwide.

According to the Homeopathy and Health Blog , by the Similia clinic, signed by specialists Ariovaldo Ribbeiro Filho and Ana Lúcia Dias, one of the biggest causes for such a high number is poor nutrition .

“The main factor is unhealthy eating, which we call junk food. Especially if a person eats the wrong way for a long time”, describes Ribbeiro.

But even those people who avoid this kind of food can suffer from the problem. “Another agent is heredity , whether in having cases in the family, or belonging to certain ethnic groups, such as blacks and Japanese, which are more likely to develop diseases in the digestive system. In addition, the consumption of alcohol and cigarettes , and the indiscriminate use of medications are also harmful and contribute to the appearance of gastritis or other diseases of the digestive system” exemplifies the specialist.
