Hi, Eat smaller, more-frequent meals. If you experience frequent indigestion, try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can.
Avoid irritating foods. Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty.
Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can irritate the mucous lining of your stomach.
Manage stress. Stress may make your gastritis symptoms worse. Stress may be hard to avoid, but you can learn to cope with it. If you have trouble relaxing, consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga or tai chi.
Try smaller portions. Many of the foods that can cause gas are part of a healthy diet. So, try eating smaller portions of problem foods to see if your body can handle a smaller portion without creating excess gas.
Eat slowly, chew your food thoroughly and don't gulp. If you have a hard time slowing down, put down your fork between each bite.
Avoid chewing gum, sucking on hard candies and drinking through a straw.These activities can cause you to swallow more air.
Check your dentures. Poorly fitting dentures can cause you to swallow excess air when you eat and drink.
Don't smoke. Cigarette smoking can increase the amount of air you swallow.
Exercise. Physical activity may help move gas through the digestive tract.
