How to Cure Stomach Ulcer

Stomach ulcers are developed around the stomach lining and in the upper part of your intestine. One in ten people every year suffer from stomach ulcer.

People develop ulcers when the upper intestine and lining of stomach get irritated via detrimental stomach acids.

Stomach ulcers occur due to these factors such as consuming excess alcohol, burns, physical injury, radiation therapy, excess use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori).

The three major types of stomach ulcer are;

  • An esophageal ulcer that develops in your esophagus
  • A gastric ulcer that affects your stomach
  • A duodenal ulcer that grows in the upper part of your small intestine, or duodenum

Common Symptoms

You can treat an ulcer easily by keeping an eye on the following symptoms.

  • Burning sensation between the chest and belly area
  • Mild to severe pain between the chest and belly area
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Reduced appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Belching

Although the treatments are available to provide relief from the painful stomach disorder, you can always opt for these home remedies to avoid adverse effects on antibiotics on your health and get rid of ulcers quickly.

1. Licorice

Licorice has been very useful in herbal remedies due to its ulcer-preventing properties. The medicinal herb stimulates the intestine and stomach to produce mucus required to cover the stomach lining from acidic components. Not only does this mucus protect the stomach but also it helps in the healing process while reducing severe pain.

It has been researched that the presence of healing compounds in Licorice inhibit Helicobacter growth in the stomach. However, it is essential to consult your doctor on the right amount of Licorice to consume for its beneficial effects.

2. Garlic

The powerhouse of antibacterial and antimicrobial properties is Garlic. Some recent studies have shown that adding garlic extracts to your meals does not only speed up ulcer recovery process but also decreases the chance of ulcer development in first place. Moreover, if you like garlic taste, you can eat two to three garlic cloves, depending on your condition daily, to fight bacteria affecting your stomach lining.

3. Honey

Honey is enriched with antioxidants. Itpossesses numerous health benefits. One of which is treating stomach sores. Different studies have also proven its anti-bacterial properties as well which play a crucial role to prevent the ulcers and speeds up the healing process. Please, do not forget to visit your health care provider, if your condition remains the same after some days.

4. Cabbage Juice

Cabbage juice keeps stomach ailments at bay. The healing and soothing properties found in it provide instant relief to the sufferers of gastric ulcers. The juice is loaded with vitamin C which wards off H. pylori infectious bacteria. Cabbage juice can become an ultimate solution to treat digestive tract pain that peptic ulcer causes. We suggest consulting your health expert to identify the underlying problem and refrain from self-medication.

5. Daily walk

If your digestive tract functions poorly and is a reason why you have frequent tummy troubles, it’s time for you to go for a walk. Be regular with the walking schedule and your digestive system will soon improve.

6. Lemon water

Lemon is a healthy herb that you will easily find in your kitchen. Squeeze a fresh lemon into a glass of water and gulp it down. Even if you don’t have stomach pain, you can drink lemon water on an empty stomach at least once every day and it detoxifies the body and boosts metabolism. I hope and pray that you will be healed through this small piece. Don't forget to share with a friend.
