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!
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)
