In case of insufficient treatment of acute gastritis or in its absence, as well as due to malnutrition, poisoning with medicines, chronic gastritis develops. In this case, the secretory function( production of hydrochloric acid) can be with a normal, increased or decreased content of digestive juice. To remove poisonous, irritating substances that accumulate in the stomach with gastritis, so-called adsorbing drugs are used. Of all the drugs that are useful in pharmacology with such properties, the most popular is activated charcoal.
Since ancient times to the present day, the use of coal for cleaning the body remains the most popular and effective medicine. It is taken not only for cleaning the body, but also for poisoning, overeating and even for weight loss. Such popularity is explained by its properties of a natural product, which does not have an irritating effect on the mucous membrane and is easily excreted from the body together with harmful substances.
Made from birch wood or burnt wal
nut shells, coconut chips, activated charcoal is a very porous substance in which 1 gram is two kilometers of surface. Such a high level of porosity provides excellent absorptive properties of this preparation. Activated carbon has the following properties:
- Bindings during absorption, adsorption, complexation of exo- and endogenous substances in the stomach, counteracting diarrhea.
- Detoxication and removal of harmful toxic substances from the body.
At the same time, activated carbon simultaneously with a variety of toxins "flushes out" vitamins and beneficial minerals. Proceeding from this, it is necessary to take the absorbent correctly. The use of activated carbon in gastritis is explained by its high efficiency of binding and elimination of toxins, poisons, and poor-quality food from the body.
Recommended for acute gastritis with manifestations of nausea, vomiting, rinse the stomach with warm water with the addition of powder of the drug at a rate of 10 grams per liter of water. Then, in addition, make a cleansing enema with plain water. The further course of treatment of acute gastritis is the taking of activated carbon tablets - carboline, for several days 2-4 tablets four times a day. Its features are the use of the drug for chronic gastritis. The most effective use of coal in chronic gastritis with increased secretion. With reduced acidity, the coal still further reduces the insufficient amount of gastric juice. Therefore, its use in this case is prohibited.
The use of activated charcoal for gastritis should be strictly according to the norm and with caution, based on the recommendations of the gastroenterologist. After all, in addition to the fact that with prolonged or uncontrolled admission, useful substances are withdrawn, but the drug, when used in large volumes, contributes to the drying of the walls of the stomach, which in turn can exacerbate the course of the disease.
