Caution in the application of calendula in gastritis
Despite all the obvious advantages of using calendula for the treatment of gastritis, it is necessary to consult with a gastroenterologist in advance, as well as with a therapist. This is due to possible contraindications.
First of all, it should be noted that during pregnancy it is better to refuse the use of folk remedies, and to treat inflammation of the gastric mucosa in a complex way. This is due to the fact that in most cases( with mild stages or forms of the disease), treatment is limited only to a special diet. In addition, this plant is recommended in principle to use pregnant women with caution( even externally).
Also, with severe anemia and hypotension, treatment of gastritis with calendula is undesirable. In addition, do not forget about the possible allergic reactions. In addition, it is not recommended without using a doctor to use simultaneously tincture of calendula with other herbal drinks, as well as medicines.
Take care of your health. And remember that you should not underestimate the apparently seemingly innocuous remedy, referring to the naturalness of its origin and availability. That's why you should not overestimate your own condition and pre-conduct a full diagnosis and get a qualified specialist consultation.
