Cabbage juice
Fenugreek leaves
Carrot juice
Eat small portions to avoid producing too much digestive acid, but eat
frequently to keep these acids from attacking the stomach linings
Eat something when you get stomach pain

HomeRemedies for you:

Cabbage Juice- raw cabbage is a popular home remedy for stomach ulcer. It is known to
produce an amino acid which helps boost blood flow to the stomach lining. This in turn
helps strengthen the stomach lining and heal the ulcer. Consuming carrot and cabbage
juice is another effective way of curing stomach ulcers.

Honey- raw honey is a common stomach ulcer natural remedy. Raw honey has potent
healing properties. When ingested, it attacks bacteria and strengthens the stomach lining.
You could include it in your daily meals or have it at regular intervals by spreading it on

wheat bread or mixed grain bread. It helps reducing any inflammation in your stomach
and also keeps allergies and diseases at bay.

Banana- Eating bananas is a great way of neutralizing the hyperacidity in the stomach
that is caused by the gastric juices. For those who do not like eating bananas, you can
consume them in the form of banana milkshakes. Therefore the most accessible home
remedy for stomach ulcer is Banana. The fruit is known to protect the system by negating
the acidity of gastric juices, reducing inflammation and strengthening the stomach lining.

Fenugreek Leaves- Fenugreek leaves when brewed are an effective home remedy for
stomach ulcer. Fenugreek contains a compound called mucilaginous, this coats and
protects the stomach lining and helps the body to heal from the ulcer.

Wood Apple- Extracts from wood apple leaves also help to reduce pain and
inflammation. Soak some wood apple leaves in water and leave overnight. The following
day, strain and drink the water.

Fiber and Citrus rich diets- the simplest home remedy for stomach cancer is
incorporating citrus and fiber-rich foods in your diet. While the former help in the
digestion process, the latter protect the stomach lining.

Home Remedies from the Counter

Buy bananas. These fruits contain an antibacterial substance that may inhibit the growth of
ulcer-causing H. pylori. And studies show that animals fed bananas have a thicker stomach wall
and greater mucus production in the stomach, which helps build a better barrier between
digestive acids and the lining of the stomach. Eating plantains is also helpful.
Get some garlic. Garlic's antibacterial properties include fighting H. pylori. Take two small
crushed cloves a day.
Home Remedies from the Refrigerator

Cut up some cabbage. Researchers have found that ulcer patients who drink 1 quart of raw
cabbage juice a day can often heal their ulcers in five days. If chugging a quart of cabbage juice
turns your stomach inside out, researchers also found that those who eat plain cabbage have
quicker healing times as well. Time for some coleslaw!
Pick plums. Red- and purple-colored foods inhibit the growth of H. pylori. Like plums, berries
too can help you fight the good fight.

Kitchen Remedies from the Spice Rack

Add a shake of cayenne pepper. Used moderately, a little cayenne pepper can go a long way in
helping ulcers. The pepper stimulates blood flow to bring nutrients to the stomach. To make a
cup of peppered tea, mix 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper in 1 cup hot water. Drink a cup a day. A
dash of cayenne pepper can also be added to soups, meats, and other savory dishes.
Love that licorice. Several modern studies have demonstrated the ulcer-healing abilities of
licorice. Licorice does its part not by reducing stomach acid but rather by reducing the ability of
stomach acid to damage stomach lining. Properties in licorice encourage digestive mucosal
tissues to protect themselves from acid. Licorice can be used in encapsulated form, but for a
quick cup of licorice tea, cut 1 ounce licorice root into slices and cover with 1 quart boiling
water. Steep, cool, and strain. (If licorice root is unavailable, cut 1 ounce licorice sticks into
slices.) You can also try licorice candy if it's made with real licorice (the label will say "licorice
mass") and not just flavored with anise. Don't eat more than 1 ounce per day, because,
surprisingly for a candy, an overdose can cause serious medical side effects.
Better get some bark. The bark of slippery elm is used for its ability to soothe the mucous
membranes that line the stomach and duodenumm. It's often taken in powdered form. Some
herbalists recommend taking about one teaspoon of powdered slippery elm bark (added to one
cup of warm water to form a gruel-like substance) three times a day.
Mind your minerals. For example, bismuth salts, such as bismuth subcitrate, have antibacterial
properties and can be effective in treating ulcers that are attributed to the Helicobacter plylori.
Again, some common conventional drugs are made with bismuth.
Sometimes ulcers have no noticeable symptoms, and sometimes they can cause gnawing
abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. If ulcers perforate, they can cause severe bleeding and
even death. But with the home remedies mentioned in this article, you can change your diet, destress your lifestyle and make other changes to ease the pain.
Vitamin E

Doctors at the Kiev Medical Institute reported that 300 mg of vitamin E daily effectively treated
peptic ulcers of 28 patients. Ulcers were relieved in four to six days in the vitamin E group, while
it took seven to ten days in those given conventional medication. Patients taking vitamin E also
had increased protein repair in their intestinal linings and gained from 1.5 to 3 kg during the
study, while the controls did not gain any weight.

The sitoindosides in dried, unripe bananas increase mucus in the digestive tract, which provides a
strong protective coating to help prevent and heal ulcers. Unripe bananas also promote cell
growth in the intestinal tract. And bananas contain water-soluble polysaccharides, the same
compounds found in the anti-ulcer prescription drug Carafate.
For ulcer treatment, unripe whole bananas will have some effect, but the best results are obtained
with banana powder. To make banana powder, peel the bananas and cut them into thin slices. Put
them in the sun, an oven, or a food dehydrator, and dry them slowly. When dry, grind them into a
fine powder. Mix 2 tablespoons of the powder with 1 tablespoon of honey. Take this mixture
three times a day: mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and at bedtime.

Honey possesses a number of curative powers and has been shown, in particular, to be an
effective ulcer treatment for two reasons. First, glucose oxidase, an enzyme in honey, produces
hydrogen peroxide, which kills harmful bacteria that can contribute to the development of ulcers.
Then there are other floral antibacterial substances in honey, which come from flowers when
bees collect pollen, that add to honeys effectiveness in eliminating bacteria.
Certain varieties of honey, however, can be more effective than others at healing ulcers. I have
reports from Saudi Arabia, where local honey was used to cure ulcers, and from doctors in Egypt
and Russia who have had positive results using their local honeys.
The key to successful ulcer treatment appears to hinge on it being natural, unprocessed honey.
Two tablespoons a day should be about right for most types of honey. When the problem has
eased, 1 tablespoon daily will probably be enough.

I've often written about the miraculous powers of garlic and highly recommend its use in
cooking. Research on its preventive and therapeutic benefits continues to grow. It now appears
that garlic can keep levels of the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium in check. (An
overgrowth of the H. pylori bacterium can contribute to the development of stomach ulcers.)
Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle discovered that garlic
exhibits specific antimicrobial activity against H. pylori without entirely eliminating the strain.
The elimination of H. pylori can cause other digestive woes.

As long as you have enough beneficial bacteria in your body, it should keep the disease-causing
bacteria that can lead to ulcers in check. And one of the best ways to fortify the good bacteria in
your gastrointestinal tract is by regularly including cultured and lactic acidfermented foods in
your diet. Foods such as homemade sauerkraut, yogurt, buttermilk, and pickled vegetables are all
excellent for helping to maintain a balance of beneficial bacteria in your bowels.
But when it comes to ulcer treatment in particular, one lactic acid food stands out above the rest:
cabbage juice. Decades before antibiotics, cabbage juice was successfully used to prevent or heal
peptic and duodenal ulcers. In one study, it was shown that cabbage juice alone had a cure rate of
over 92 percent in the treatment of these ulcers. This compared to about a 32 percent cure rate in
those using a placebo or other treatment.
The dosage in the study consisted of only 50 mL of raw cabbage juice derived from a quart of
freshly pressed cabbage. Based on numerous studies and early clinical work, researchers have
begun to refer to this unknown ulcer-healing factor in cabbage as vitamin U.
Although in the above studies the cabbage juice wasnt fermented, keep in mind that vegetables
that grow close to the soil are naturally rich in beneficial lactic acid bacteria. That's why "starter
cultures" aren't needed to ferment these vegetables, only salt and water.
Cabbage is also a reliable source of vitamin C, which has been found to be lower in the gastric
juice of ulcer patients. So if you have ulcers, cabbage juice is a safe, effective, and inexpensive
remedy. If you "culture" it or give it a chance to ferment, you'll experience even more benefits.

Several studies have suggested that deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) works as well as the drug
cimetidine for treating and maintaining peptic and duodenal ulcers. It appears that DGL helps the
stomach and intestines produce more protective mucus. This is extremely beneficial for anyone
who takes ulcer-producing drugs like aspirin, cortisone derivatives, or nonsteroidal antiinflammatories.
To be effective, however, DGL tablets must be chewed before swallowing. I recommend two
380-mg tablets three times a day between meals. Once ulcers have healed, the dosage can be
reduced to two tablets a day (between meals). Enzymatic Therapy makes chewable DGL tablets.
Look for them in health food stores.

Contrary to what many people believe, eating hot chili peppers doesn't cause gastric ulcers.
Instead, eating them actually prevents ulcer development. That's because peppers have been
shown to trigger mechanisms that protect the lining of the stomach. Studies in Hungary found
that consumption of capsaicin (the chemically active component in most peppers) actually
decreased the acid output of the stomach, while at the same time increased protective secretions.
In simple terms, peppers act as an antacid.
Capsaicin was also particularly effective at protecting the stomach from ulcerations caused by
alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. So if you've sworn off jalapenos and other hot
peppers thinking they caused your ulcers, it's time to add them back into your diet as an effective
ulcer treatment.
