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!"
