This is interesting information. Did you use the H2O2 35% food grade? Does it also cure peptic ulcer?

I use H202/baking soda, H202/colloidal silver. It has cured bad breath, whitened teeth and healed gum sores. The H202/colloidal silver cured a stomach ulcer caused by h pylori bacteria. H202 is marvelous. I have been using it to water my plants for about a year and only recently learned about it's other wonderful uses. I am going to start using Bill Munro's inhalation method shortly.

Kefir for Ulcers:

I have had chronic heartburn for months now, but about a week ago I started to have agonizing pains especially at night under my left ribcage, so bad that I haven't slept for days. My doctor doubled my Zantac from 150 mg once to twice a day, and I had Carafate that I used intermittently, but that didn't do. I also tried cabbage juice, slippery elm, DGL, Siberian Pine Nut Oil, bananas, probiotics, ACV, etc., and nothing helped -- until I tried plain, ordinary kefir.

I drank the first cupful of keir and I could feel relief fairly quickly, so then I repeated it often, as frequently every 2 hours or so, as soon as I felt the slightest discomfort, all day long. Today is my second day and the only reason I was able to sleep during the night was because I kept drinking it as soon as I could feel the burn/pain or before. I don't feel that agonizing pain now, and I don't appear to have the need for drinking it as frequently. Pain is an indicator and as of right now, it has diminished dramatically. I don't think things have healed yet, but it's significant that I feel so much better.

Kefir is a thick liquid full of probiotics, and it coats the tissues in addition providing the bacteria needed - and not quite the same as taking capsules. In addition, it's cheaper than all the other things I've tried that didn't work. I also reduced my food intake to softer, more easily digested foods, such as bananas, oatmeal and to non-abrasive, easily digestible foods just to keep from aggravating things, if only until I get straightened out enough and then just watch what I eat afterwards. I think I will still continue some of my medication to reduce acid, but only for a short time to make sure I continue doing well.

I'm recovering from stomach ulcers, and I wanted to share some of the things that helped me. The ulcers got so bad that I was vomiting blood, and prescription pills do more harm than good (plus, I don't have insurance, so I can't keep going to the doctor). The most helpful thing by far is licorice. There was a study done in Europe some time ago that found that only three things really help ulcers: rest & relaxation, quitting smoking, and licorice. Apparently licorice forms a protective coating against the lining of the stomach, and not only eases the pain, but also allows the ulcer to heal by protecting it from stomach acid. For some reason the study was never published in the U.S. You can buy chewable licorice extract pills (effective but disgusting) or drink licorice tea (a acquired taste but amazing stuff). Bananas also work wonders when your stomach feels like it's on fire with acid. Ginger also works really well for indigestion, and especially for nausea. I find that eating crystallized ginger is more effective than drinking ginger tea. However, the helpful effects of ginger don't last anywhere near as long as those of licorice.

Hi Lisa ,
How do you feel now? I have minor irritations in my stomach and I believe it was caused by taking NSAID for about 10 days, stupid doctors. I currently taking DGL licorice, Mastic gum and apple cider vinegar three times daily.

Since I am from hartford CT also, I was wondering would you suggest anything else and what did you eat during that period of healing. Any feedback or suggestion would be good and I know for sure with the above I should be feeling great in a about two to three day's - Pratt

Hi, I'm Justin from the Philippines. I had an ulcer back in my younger years and couldnt afford going to the doctor, so my mother made me drink a cup of warm water with "makabuhay stems" herbal medicine. (3 to 5 pcs 2 inches each) you need to beat the stems with anything hard to make the juice easily combine with the water. usually beat or press them with a glass bottom. The stems could be used for 2x more just add hot water let it cool a bit, just make sure you used fresh new stems each day. I drank it 3 times a day before a meal and in just my first glass for the 1st day I felt normal. The excruciating pain was gone. I did this routine for a week and the ulcer did not came back since. It taste bitter but worth a try. I ate soft foods in a week while on treatment mostly oat meals and broiled fish.

P. S. Do not drink this if you are pregnant or planning to conceive as it will encourage miscarriage. This drink will also start menstruation if you are having problem with your monthly period. Please try this if ever you are in the Philippines then post back with your experience. here is the link on how it looks http://www.stuartxchange.com/Makabuhay.html

I've been suffering from sporadic but agonising stomach ulcers for over a year and recently came across manuka honey as a natural remedy. Look for honey that is labelled active +10, +13, etc. I take it first thing in the morning and any time during the day when I feel that familiar old burning, gnawing pain. I've found that the best way to take it is on an empty stomach, with a teaspoonful dolloped on a small piece of bread. That way it goes straight into the stomach and should serve to coat the lining of the stomach, kill the pain and promote healing. I've had very good results with active manuka honey and understand it to be effective on any kind of ulcerated skin, wounds, etc.

Manuka Honey was the only answer to the ulcer problem I was having. All natural and clinically tested. Complete a search under 'The University of Waikato' in New Zeland. Oil of Oregano is very effective for healing cold soars in a hurry! I always recommend you research a product on a credible internet site before trying any remedy.

EXCELLENT FOR PEOPLE WITH ULCERS. For years my dad had ulcers and finally a bleeding one! Dr. Prescribed pills, however, dad decided to go the healthier route. The nutritionist told him to do the following and it's helped HEAL not just coat the ulcer.

(1) 1 cup milk (skim, 1 or 2% if you don't want all the extra calories)

(2) 1 Tblsp. Slippery Elm - powder

(3) honey or maple syrup to taste

(4)optional 1/2 banana.

Mix all ingredients in a blender and drink 1/2 hr. Before meals. It thickens so you need to drink it quickly.

Dad did this for a month, when he went back to the Dr. They tested him and said he was fine. We've shared this recipe with hundreds of friends over the years which has had great success stories.

Of course, avoiding coffee, soda, acidy foods, especially while it's healing. Each person has to know their body, but this most definitely will give you great relief from pain from ulcers and acid reflux. I'm also an ulcer and acid reflux sufferer and can honestly say "IT WORKS!"

Dear Folashade,

Slippery Elm powder is a powder made from the bark of a Slippery Elm tree. It is very nutritious and healing to the digestive tract. It is native to North America, so I am not sure how you would get it in Nigeria. I am afraid the milk and banana without the slippery elm powder would not be effective. Slippery Elm Bark powder is a little expensive but a little goes a long way. I have found it to be wonderful for issues in the digestive system.

You know what's even better from step #1 in this drink? Replace the skim milk with pure raw milk. Can be reduced fat or whole raw milk. Raw milk has TONS of enzymes and great for any digestive problems. Best to also choose raw milk from grass-fed cows only. Thanks & God Bless!

Hi Charlotte,

Zinc carnosine was recently brought to my attention for gastric problems. The combination of these two ingredients supposedly works well for healing the stomach, and a few other things,

For three weeks I have been having progressively worse stomach pain, bloating, back pain, and headaches. Last night the pain was so excruciating that I started to research symptoms of stomach ulcers. I have had them in the past, but only stomach pain. I quickly discovered that the symptoms were all related and I did indeed have another stomach ulcer. I came to this site for a solution and read about coconut oil and cayenne pepper. I immediately tried both, but got limited relief.

Then I decided to try MMS. I have to tell you that I got overwhelming relief within 15 minutes. I was finally able to sleep. I took 3 drops MMS with 3 drops 50% citric acid activator at 10 this morning and repeated this at 11am. The pain was reduced from about a 9 to about a 2. Then I slept the rest of the day and woke up and started dosing hourly again. I wanted to share this with Earth Clinic so that it may help someone else. The headache, backache, and bloating is almost non-existant. I could not be more pleased. Thanks to Jim Humble who has shared this valuable information with us.

What is MMS?

EC: Find out about MMS right here!

Replied by Beth

MMS is the chemical sodium chlorite. When you mix it with vinegar or citric acid, it becomes chlorine dioxide, which kills just about any pathogen that exists. (I have been taking it nearly daily for about five years to heal my skin cancer that metastasized.) It works for anything that is caused by pathogens (bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites, etc.)

Last night I had horrible food poisoning from some fish and I took it and got nearly instant relief. I would never be without it. (It has also saved me a fortune on vet bills for my cat.) It is very inexpensive and lasts a LONG time.

I hope that helps!

I have been suffering from an awful stomach ulcer, lately I cannot sleep at night or I am sleeping one hour on and one hour off because the pain is so gnawing and constant. I have lost 4 pounds in the last four days because eating anything has been altogether too painful, or is accompanied by hours of running to the bathroom and being doubled over in pain. Previously to this I have cut out caffeine, alcohol and smoking. However, sugar is something I still indulge in, and know needs to stop. I read ALL the reviews in a desperate fit yesterday and went out and bought 15UMF Manuka Honey, Turmeric, Cayenne Pepper, Coconut oil, bananas, Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda.

I had a tablespoon of ACV with a pinch of Baking soda which initially made my belly a little rumbly and also ate a big spoonful of the Manuka honey. These two combined gave me enough relief to sleep soundly for the first time in 3 nights.

This morning I repeated the ACV w/ baking soda and for breakfast made a shake with one cup filtered water, one banana, a heaping teaspoon of turmeric, a tablespoon of coconut oil, a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a big tablespoon of manuka honey, a cup of frozen blueberries, a bit of very clean whey, organic protein powder and a scoop of Green Vibrance (an amazing probiotic and vegetable powdered blend you can find at whole foods and probably other health food stores).

I had no issues with this, and my insides stayed calm (to my delight!! )... I had this exact same shake for lunch minus the scoop of Green Vibrance (I only do one scoop a day). All clear! But then I made the mistake of having a chicken shwarma and my stomach became a nightmare again, but was settled by a scoop of manuka and hot lemon water with cayenne.

I have gotten A LOT of relief from these natural remedies I found online and am very grateful. Ultimately I know the source of this ulcer is my current job and it won't truly heal until I leave it behind, but in the meantime, I am experiencing great relief. Will continue with these smoothies for two meals per day and something simple for dinner. Not sure what yet..

If there are any significant changes or I am able to heal completely I will repost. Good luck to us all, may we all heal while addressing the root of the issue, whether it is a bad job, taxing relationship, or love of barbecue and booze. Cheers!

I've had problems with peptic ulcers and GERD off and on for about 15 years. Until recently, the things that I found that worked for me were Extra Virgin Pine Nut Oil and Manuka honey. I had a horrible flare up about 3 months ago and went for my tried and true but yikes, it did not work at all. The pain and bloating were unbearable for several days so I finally said to heck with it and went for Nexium. I know - ugh. Hey, I was in the "call 911" zone.

So I read some tips on this site and decided that I would try L-glutamine, cabbage, bananas, and DGL starting after the 14 day round of Nexium. The bananas gave me intestinal gas so they were axed. It took a couple of days for the other 3 to kick in but it seemed be working fairly well for 2 months until I got a really bad headache and was forced to take ibuprofen. That undid everything in under 8 hours!!! Two tablets and it all went to hell again.

The L-glutamine and DGL had no effect at all in alleviating the acid, pain and bloating. You can imagine my dismay.

I decided to try the raw ACV with a pinch of baking soda. I'm here to tell you that if you have ulcers, DO NOT try this! Holy crap. Thought I was going to die. I continued with the L-glutamine and DGL hoping upon hope that they would kick back in. But, no. So suffering with the awful pain for 3 days sent me back to Nexium tonight and thankfully, it is starting to work. I will give do a 14 day round again to get things under control. I will not suffer this.

I've ordered Sea Buckthorn oil and will try that along with the Extra Virgin Pine Nut Oil and Manuka honey again. BTW, when I had the first round years ago, before finding relief with the EVPNOil, I tried turmeric. When it collided with the ulcers, it was a drop-to-my-knees event. I find it interesting that what our bodies need to 'cure' changes over time but then again, our bodies are dynamic and change too...

I'll post when I find out if the Sea Buckthorn Oil, et.al., do any good. I've never tried MMS since I've heard that it can have some nasty side effects. Has anyone else tried MMS for an extended period of time?

Hello, I have been suffering from an ulcer, undiagnosed as I am scared of endscopy procedure. When you have pain why don't you try the cayenne pepper? It relives pain quick. Also the ACV, try without the baking soda and it should help. I have till now tried: manuka honey( did not provide relief, I think I might not be using the right brand :() which brand do you use? Aloe vera which I find quiet a relief for the pain if I keep sipping it here and there throughout the day. Pine nut oil: only had it twice for two days for the bleeding ulcer and I think it helped. Not been regular, quiet expensive for a small bottle. Mastic gum: I was on and off with first bottle apparently you have to take it regularly for a month or two, so I have ordered two new bottles. Dgl: I dont know if its helping but I keep taking it. My fav, cayenne pepper, sounds odd was hesitated to try but wow! Really relives pain and stops bleeding of the ulcer. Chamomile and fenugreek tea: I dont know if its helping but I am on and off. Cabbage juice: I think it made my pain worse so avoiding it for while. Recently looking into an alkaline and meat free diet I am mostly sugar free anyway to see it helps. Also going to add ACV 2x aday to see if it makes any difference. I feel so good most days but not quiet success with healing. But I am praying a lot. Will keep updated.

NATURAL SOOTHING MEDICINE FOR GASTRITIS AND ULCERS

For chronic ulcers and gastritis this really helps from my experience:

Have a Banana Honey coconut water at night before sleeping. Repeat same in morning.

Also take chamomile tea. It works because night and morning are the times stomach is empty and acid is highest. This will soothe the stomach and heal the ulcers and gastritis.

For meals take Indian kichdi:

Take (2 cups rice, 1 cup Moong lentil, 1 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp turmeric, salt, cut green beans, 1 tbsp olive oil). 6 cups water. Put everything in rice cooker and switch on and allow to cook. Eat with 1 TBSP curds and a side dish (optional)

Pine Nut Oil for stomach ulcer! My daughter had been suffering for almost a year from horrible pain and the nausea that accompanies a peptic ulcer. Due to food allergies, her already restricted diet dwindled even more, and from the combination of almost constant pain, hunger and weariness she found herself spiraling into depression. She tried Mastic Gum and ACV for several weeks and got some relief. She also tried colliodial silver and slippery elm for several weeks with limited relief. Then I found out about the oil. One teaspoon three times a day (not diluted is best) and within a few days she felt better. Less than two weeks later she's pain free and eating foods she hasn't enjoyed in ages! I am posting this because I hope this can help someone else with the same problem. We were at the end of our ropes and after trying so many other therapies, drinking a little oil seemed no stranger than the others. However, this really worked for us!
