Heal Stomach Ulcers Naturally Without Antibiotics

Heal Stomach Ulcers Naturally Without Antibiotics

Stomach ulcers can be healed with natural ingredients

Stomach ulcers are sores in the gastrointestinal tract which affect billions of people every year, it’s becoming a pandemic. The commonest symptom of an ulcer is a gnawing feeling in the stomach area that lasts from half an hour and up to three hours. The pain usually occurs just below the breastbone but sometimes can be felt in the upper abdomen area. Very often, ulcer pain is misinterpreted as heartburn, indigestion or hunger. Furthermore, loss of appetite and weight are common symptoms, though a person with a duodenal ulcer may experience weight gain due to eating more to ease discomfort.

The bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is believed to be the main cause of the ulcers. H. pylori may be transmitted from one person to another and through contaminated food and water. Also, there are several different types of stomach ulcer, not just the two (peptic, duodenal) commonly known. Different types of ulcer

Stomach ulcers should be taken very serious, as they can be a precursor to stomach cancer due to having excessive and chronic inflammation. Nearly all cancers start out as inflammation.

Stomach ulcers are are a very common complaint these days

Often due to the latest trends in lifestyle, for example, fast foods. With most people living very busy lifestyles, the thought of having to go home and prepare a meal from scratch, often feels daunting. Why bother when we can just grab a tv dinner or get some takeout. The problem is these foods tend to feed and increase the bad bacteria in the gut and are often the cause of excessive acid.

Other causes of ulcers are the use of anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin and pain meds that contain aspirin. Where I don’t think cigarette smoking actually causes ulcers, it certainly can aggravate the condition.

The normal treatment for stomach ulcers are antibiotics along with an acid suppressant. These treatments tend to work in the short term. But very often the same complaint comes back to terrorise again.

Stomach ulcers - Health JournalThe good news is, they can be treated naturally

Here is a list of recommended remedies that I have found while researching the problem:

  • Colloidal silver has been proven to kill the H. pylori bacteria and helps heal injured stomach tissues. Take one teaspoon 3 times a day on an empty stomach. In most cases the ulcers are gone within 3 weeks. The study was conducted by researchers Larry J. Rendin, Carl L. Gamba, and Wallace M. Johnson in 1958, and published in the Pennsylvania Medical Journal. 61: 612-614. It was titled Colloidal oxide of silver in the treatment of peptic ulcer. Out of 88 patients all but one were healed.
  • Eating at least three bananas a day has worked for some. These fruits contain an antibacterial substance that inhibits the growth of ulcer-causing H. pylori. Studies show that animals fed bananas have a thicker stomach wall and greater mucus production in the stomach, which helps build a barrier between digestive acids and the lining of the stomach.
  • Apple cider vinegar appears to be especially effective in treating certain forms of ulcers, including peptic ulcers, which is a condition that often occurs as a result of a large number of H. pylori bacteria in the stomach. Some recommend adding a teaspoon of baking soda to the vinegar because it neutralises the acid.
  • Another recommended remedy is eating raw cabbage. Juicing the raw cabbage with carrots will make it easier to take. Drink half a cup before each meal and at bed time and make sure that it is fresh. Your stomach ulcer may be gone in only a few weeks.
  • The bark of slippery elm soothes the mucous membranes that line the stomach and duodenum. It is often taken in powdered form. Some herbalists recommend taking a teaspoon of powdered slippery elm bark added to one cup of warm water three times a day.
  • Cayenne pepper is another recommended remedy for healing ulcers and dulling the pain. It may take some getting used to so start with one-eighth teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of water twice a day or sprinkle on your food. Gradually work up to a quarter-teaspoon twice a day. Capsules are available at the health food store. Take three a day immediately after meals.
  • Licorice root contains the glycyrrhizin extract. In one study, licorice root fluid extract was used to treat 100 patients with stomach ulcers for 6 weeks. Ninety percent of the patients improved, with ulcers completely disappearing in 22 of the patients.
  • Eating raw honey, especially Manuca, soothes and reduces inflammation of the lining of the stomach and is good for healing as well. Taking one teaspoon at night before bed can soothe digestive discomfort.
  • Garlic’s antibacterial properties include fighting H. pylori. Take two small or one large clove a day. The easiest way to take is to cut the cloves into small pieces and swallow like you would tablets. Eat something small like a piece of fruit after.
  • Plums and other red and purple coloured foods such as berries inhibit the growth of H. pylori.
  • Coconut oil kills the bacteria that cause ulcers and gas and can help if taken as part of the anti-ulcer regime.
  • Introduce some probiotics into your diet to help balance and restore symbiosis, (equilibrium) to your microbiome.

Follow a healthy diet as a prevention

I would recommend using at least 3 of the above cures as a fail safe way to knock the problem on the head. Also, controlling your diet is crucial to successful treatment. This is to make sure that your stomach produces less acid when digesting your food. Eating large meals requires the stomach to produce large amounts of stomach acid. So it is best to eat small meals. Ideally, you should be having 5 to 6 small meals a day and not 2 or 3 large ones.

Your meals should be low in fat and sugar and high in fibre. A diet based on fruits, vegetables and whole grains is just that. Therefore, the reason for avoiding fatty foods, is that they are harder for you to digest, so your body then produces more stomach acid and aggravates your condition. Fatty foods include meat, dairy and fried foods. Foods that are low in fat can speed up your recovery. The aim is to make your body more alkaline so eat more vegetables and fruit, such as carrots, kale, broccoli, red/green peppers, cabbage juice, grapes, apricots and kiwi fruit, for their beta-carotene and vitamin C content, in order to help protect the lining of the stomach and intestine.
