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
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
- Reduced appetite
- Weight loss
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.
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.
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.
Honey is enriched with antioxidants. Itpossesses numerous health benefits. One of which is treating stomach sores.
