Hi there, I had ulcers last year and tried cabbage juice and it gave me wind and burping but no real help. Some people cannot tolerate it. What helped me at the time was taking proton pump inhibitors. I live in the UK and cannot afford to keep trying this and that, works out too hit and miss and far too expensive. Now it may have returned. I think it is important to have good appetite, eat soft food, make sure you have nutrition and have other things that help like fibre and omega 3 etc the usual and be patient as it takes time.
Maybe those who get ulcers are prone to them returning later if not careful.
This is an update five months later by Carmel.
Gave up on the cabbage juice as did not seem to be helping, time consuming and expensive.
Took Nexium for ten weeks. Had to take painkillers for headaches and occasional stomach ache which were side effects. When you stop taking the ppis you get a bad stomach and many doctors say this means you must continue to take them. But then you would take them forever! Stick with it and the pain goes after a few days.
Whatever I eat makes no difference.
Twenty one days later have a bit of pain there that is manageable and comes and goes. Presumably I still have an ulcer but maybe a half healed one.
Live in England and waiting to see consultant for proper diagnosis in January.
WARNING: Know what you are doing before you drink cabbage juice. I have been having a lot of ulcer pain so I thought I would give cabbage juice a go. I pulled out my juicer, juiced an entire (small) head and drank it down fast. BIG. MISTAKE. Big. I guess you are only supposed to drink like half a cup at a time and take your time? I must have had at least 16 fl oz. I was miserable.... Rocking with nausea and a migraine after about 10 minutes. I finally was able to vomit, but the migraine lasted for over an hour. Anyway, just be careful with these raw juices. They are powerful stuff! I think I will be waiting a while before I try any more cabbage juice.... As bad as this ulcer hurts.
