People in some parts of China love spicy food very much. According to a ranking list spread widely via Weibo, Hunan people rank No. 1. Guizhou people take the second place. Sichuan and Chongqing people are in the third place. Hubei people take the fifth place in the ranking.

Have you ever tasted some spicy Chinese dishes? What are your favorite?

There are some typical dishes:
1. Hunan Chopped Chili
2. Chongqing Hot Pot
3. Hubei's Spicy Crayfish
4. Wuhan's Duck's Neck

When you have gastrointestinal or gastritis problem, try to avoid spicy food.

Yes, my mom has a gastritis problem though she doesn't eat too much chili. She eats cold food too much. I guess that's why she gets gastritis.

Once you have gastritis, it's not easy to rectify. Most spicy things will damage the lining of the intestine. I don't know the traditional medicine for this ailment, but for those prefer modern medicine, Controloc (pantoprazole) is recommended.

Thanks for your recommendation, Wan. Traditional Chinese medicine is effective. The premise is that you find a very experienced old traditional Chinese medicine expert. My mom is over fifty. She has visited a local traditional Chinese medicine doctor many times. The doctor's prescriptions and medicine really work.

I'm sure some of us may have a hard time to search for Controloc in China because imported ones not only expensive but are not found in many local pharmacies.

Wan,

Made in China Controloc is cheap. The imported one is definitely expensive.

I apologise for not explaining the terms for medicine. There are innovator medicine and generic medicine. Innovator medicine is the original product, first produced, such as Norvasc by Pfizer. Other pharmaceuticals may produce its generic name Amlodipine Besylate (for high blood pressure). Any generic Amlodipine will do but not the same as Norvasc and then of course innovator medicine is more expensive than the generic.

Some people say that innovator is more expensive than the generic because it involves with laboratory studies.

Thanks for your explanation, Wan. I am still puzzled. I think most patients love to choose the cheaper one if the curative effect of both are the same.
