Useful Remedies to Get Rid Of Ulcer At Your Own Place

Causes For Ulcer

Ulcers are in part caused (and can be worsened) by the corrosive action of the gastric acids. Gastric juices are part hydrochloric acid and part pepsin, an enzyme that helps break down food. The walls of the stomach secrete a mucus substance to protect the linings from the corrosive action of the stomach acid. However if there is too much acid or not enough mucus coating the walls of the stomach, a peptic ulcer may develop. External substances can also irritate the linings of the stomach, things like tobacco, alcohol, and some drugs like Advil, Aleve, Aspirin, Motrin, etc. are part of the ulcer causing irritants.

It’s now known that a bacterium called H. pylori, can also contribute to the development of ulcers, this type of bacterium is commonly found in the linings of the stomach and is the principal cause of ulcers. It has been shown that 90% of people suffering from ulcers in the duodenum and 75% of all gastric ulcers are caused by this bacteria, which attacks the walls of the stomach, it has been linked to gastric cancer as well.

Remedies For Ulcer

1. It’s very important to follow a diet rich in fiber and low in fats. Eat steamed green vegetable like alfalfa, broccoli, and tomatoes.

2. Eat small portions to avoid producing too much digestive acid, but eat frequently to keep these acids from attacking the stomach linings.

3. For bleeding ulcers eat organic baby food and drink brown rice water to soothe the digestive system.

4. Avoid milk, although it soothes the digestive tract and neutralizes stomach acid, it also stimulates the production of more acid, further irritating the ulcerated area.

5. Avoid coffee, alcohol, citrus juices, sugar, hot and spicy foods, these substances irritate the stomach and encourage the production of gastric acid.
