Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Justice Adjei (Ghana, West Africa) on 09/18/2013

Hi there, is it really advisable for an apple cider vinegar regimen with other natural products to be recommended for a patient with possible symptoms of stomach or any type of ulcer?. Considering the acid nature of the vinegar? What type of fruits, food & vegetables will you also recommend for such a person? Thanks so very much.

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.

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)

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the advice I've found on this forum. I was diagnosed in January with suspected ulcers. The symptoms started in August with extreme stomach bloating after eating anything, and grawing stomach pains accompanied with constant stomach growling (even immediately after eating) and occasional heartburn and nausea.

In September, I upped my Probiotics and started on digestive enzymes along with daily Prilosec. None of this helped so my doctor put me on a prescription ulcer medicine to coat my stomach and Protonix. We I asked for a h pylori test she told me she couldn't do one until I had not been taking any acid reflux medicine for at least 60 days. (??)

These medicines weren't helping either so my next step was an endoscopy which they wanted to do right away. I have a huge insurance deductible so I decided to try this instead.

Last week started taking the 1/4 tsp of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of organic ACV 3 times a day. Three times a day I also take a cayenne pepper capsule and a glutamine capsule (per another post on here). By day 2 my stomach stopped bloating. By day 5 my stomach feels normal again and my appetite has returned. This is the first time since August I could eat without my stomach appearing to be 6 months pregnant.

I believe the regiment is killing the h pylori in my stomach. I really don't care what it's doing because it works!

My mom helped my grandfather with his h. pylori, using cabbage juice...he would juice it and drink it and it healed him.

ACV and Baking Soda, Cayenne, Glutamine

I had an ulcer and was prescribed Nexium. The side effects were worse then the masked symptoms, so I never finished a full 8-week coarse and battled with the ulcer for 5 months.Finally I went searching for a natural cure, found Earth Clinic and decided to try a combination of things with a twist.

I started drinking Apple Cider Vinegar (2 Tbsp) in about 2 cups of water with a 1/4 tsp. of baking soda. I drank that 3 times a day in the beginning. I also took 500mg of cayenne in a capsule 3 x a day and 500mg of glutamine 3x a day (also in a capsule form). I stopped all prescribed medications and only took an occasional TUM's when I felt I needed some extra relief.

After 1 week I was greatly relieved with only occasional flare ups but nothing that couldn't be helped with the ACV and baking soda. The glutamine is what is the active ingredient in cabbage juice which is also helpful for an ulcer, but it's hard to drink 4 cups of raw cabbage juice a day so I went for the capsules. At three weeks I was 90% there, at 5 weeks 100% better. I also think it is important to cut out all caffeine and alcohol during your healing period.

I hope that those of you suffering find some relief like I did, and thank you to all of the Earth Clinic contributors for sharing your information.

ACV and Baking Soda, Cayenne, Glutamine
Posted by Gina (Ipswich, Australia) on 05/24/2013

Hey everyone! So it has been a week since I began taking the Glutamine and Cayenne tablets, while drinking the ACV. I must say that, trying to cut corners and not using the raw cabbage juice STRAIGHT away(instead of replacing them with the Glutamine Tabs) was a mistake!! I began the Raw Cab juice 3 days later and OMG the improvement in myself and my stomach is AMAZING. I have been doing the whole regime now since Tues or Weds-This includes around 4 cups of Cab Juice daily, 6 Glutamine per day & 4 Cayenne per day-I found the ACV a bit too strong, so discontinued that for now, but I have tablets now instead ) From the start date though, I haven't HAD to vomit AT ALL. Although, I still feel seriously bloated if I eat a little too much and have made myself vomit, it is NOTHING like it has been for the last long time. I get sometimes sharp stomach pain, but usually now, not so sharp and much less than before. I am so happy to report this back to you all and I thank you ALL for the imput you have put into this site. ANYONE, with those nasty Ulcers, no matter how you got them. TRY THE RAW CABBAGE JUICE ASAP, I bought a new decent sized juicer which was an awesome investment. YES, I still have a ways to go, but I know by this time next week, continuing what I am taking of course, that my life WILL begin again - Although, it is feeling alot better now as it is, For me, thanks to the great advice My Future isn't so grim anymore and counting on what the Dr CAN'T seem to fix is no longer scaring the heck out of me. I do apologise if this doesn't make sense, but I just had to give someone :) an update.

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.

Fresh juice without pulp should never be gulped down the pallet or drink it, rather should be chewed. Mixed with the saliva, thus the nutrients, and enzymes can enter the blood via the glands in the mouth. Think homeopathic!

I am also prone to stomach ulcers. I have had 3 in the past 10 years. I read there is a certain bacteria in the stomach that leads to developing stomach ulcers. Due to a recent family dispute, the heartburn and stomach pain was constant. Shortly before I started taking HP, I read about L-Glutamine. I have been taking 500 mg three times a day, (with meals). It has stopped my ulcer pain almost 100%. I later read that it is helpful in protecting the stomach lining. I hope this helps you.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

I took aspirin for years for chronic pain and developed a gastric ulcer. It's better now, after several months of Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda and watching what I eat, but I still have the pain. It prevents me from sleeping, so I really need something for this pain. Any suggestions? I already take magnesium daily as well as D3 and a good quality multivitamin.

Missal to solve these issues I found the answers were ... 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1/2 tsp of baking soda let fizz add 1/2 glass of water drink 2x a day 1/2 hour after food 5 days out of 7. I think the baking soda is the thing your missing. This alone can relieve pain correct digestion solve the runs. Due to removal of my lower intestine I went a few steps further under teds recommendations. I take 100mg of dhea in the morning and 5mg. Of melatonin at night. This is 25 to 50 mg per 130lbs body weight. So I started at a higher dose as I do not have the storage aspect of my intestine. It has helped my whole health picture. I was exhausted from the runs themselves. Digestion a full spectrum multi enzyme including hcl is critical to gain the nutrient from your food. Then your body has nutrients every meal to heal bromelain too. Taking a dose at the first bite of every meal. Many take additional hcl with their meals. Your sphincters within your body and the ducts that release bile for digestion need magnesium. This can be an issue for us. Magnesium malate is the easiest solution as it is mag reacted with malic acid to prevent the runs. 250mg 1x a day for a week. Then am and pm the second week and on. I find I must use topical magnesium oil to further uptake more mag.

Ted also recommend a b50 vitamin but it is difficult to find the correct type of the seperate bs in one capsule. B1 thiamine mononitrate B2 riboflavin B3 niacinamide not niacin for optimizing digestion is critical and taking 500 mg 2 or 3x a day can help. B5 panthine B6 p5p Choline inositol Paba The only correct one that I can find is Swansons activated b I buy the higher dose one and take 3x a week. Plus extra niacinamide 3x a day. Thiamine mononitrate and ribofavin in the am 5x a week. To further your healing you might consider d3 10,000iu Selenium yeast 200 mcg K2 200 mg 5 days out of 7 This is how I finally solved the pain and bathroom issues and can rejoin the world.

I am not sure it is wise to recommend to people with sensitive stomachs to take 20 different supplements. Moderation! So many supplements can damage your liver.

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?

Turmeric, Oil of Oregano, Bananas

I have tried them all..literally! The only thing that has worked for me (H-pylori) is the Tumeric and Oil of Oregano. I have juiced, tried the cayenne (which works for awhile), Mastic Gum, Slippery Elm, Cats Claw, Coconut Oil, H2o2, ACV, Manuka honey, and lastly, a "tea" made for ulcers that I cannot mention (very expensive). I found the perfect combination: 1 tablet Tumeric 2x daily; Oil of Oregano 4 drops 3x daily; and eating 3 bananas a day. Look, not everyone's body reacts the same. I will not say that the rest of the methods above don't work! They may indeed work for others and I am glad...but this is my success story.

Took turmeric a teaspoon full 3 times a day; it relieved the awful pain I had from ulcers past days. I will continue to take turmeric for at least a month once a day. As I have read a study that showed it helped to heal the lining of the stomach 75 to 80 %. I have changed my diet, no simple carbs, flour, corn, potatoes, sugar, (I use raw honey now). Plus I took raw garlic clove a day with the turmeric, it also helped. Will continue raw garlic 2 - 3 times aweek. Feel so much better.

My fiancee' suffers from ulcers and started doing the ACV and Baking soda mixture 3 x per day with moderate relief. Can someone answer me the question of what role does the baking soda play in the mixture? Does it take the edge off the vinegar or does it play another role in the stomach? Thanks folks!

Bitter Melon

Thank G-d, I believe I have found the cure for stomach ulcers. Though it tastes horrible, literally the worst meal I've ever had, it COMPLETELY worked for me. I ate one whole raw bitter melon including the seeds (with salt and tomato to try to mask the taste)I had suffered on and off with ulcers since Jan 2012 and though it had waned considerably, it still hung around after taking about everything you could imagine, except that matoula (sp?) tea from SA. But that was on my list, even when nearly broke. Cayenne helped a lot, but they still were there or it, whatever. But about a day after trying the bitter melon, the pain totally disappeared. I ate the seeds too because the are supposed to kill bacteria. I did feel slightly erm, inebriated I guess, it has some insulin like effect on the body, but it wasn't a drunk or toxic feeling, just a very calming effect, wonderful actually. I tested myself slowly with all the foods that would bring pain before, coffee, a little wine (I'm not a drinker at all) and bread, pasta, potatoes, etc. zero problems. This is the answer folks, I'm thoroughly convinced that everything else may help, but this plant was made for this purpose in my opinion. Don't listen to people who want to tell you to take pills.

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!

Milk and Slippery Elm Drink

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!"
