About a year ago I had a major heart attack (I'm 38). The doctors told me it was because of the stress the heart attack put on my body, I developed an ulcer. I was put on a double Previcid, but nothing helped. I was at the point I couldn't do anything, or eat anything without severe stomach pain.

A friend of mine suggested cabbage juice. I did some research and started drinking about 4 oz twice a day. The first day I felt better. Within about 4 days I felt like my old self. It's been two months, I quite drinking the cabbage juice after about 3 weeks, and have not had any symptoms or flare ups since. I would recommend this for anyone with stomach problems!

Garlic Cured Stomach Ulcer
Posted by Mike (Georgia, US) on 03/30/2015

Garlic is the worst thing possible for an ulcer. This should be taken down immediately. Garlic does nothing to kill h. Pylori and is very hard on the digestive system. Take it from a garlic lover who is currently healing with cabbage juice and prayer to the Lord Jesus. Garlic causes severe pain. I took 8-10 cloves a day to fight candida when I didn't know about my ulcer and it inflamed my ulcer something fierce. I had terrible stomach pain and almost puked. The pain was got so intense that I got dizzy. Garlic and spicy foods are not recommended by anyone who knows the pain of an ulcer and how to help them heal.

To the one who thinks H Pylori may cause another ulcer. Getting rid of bleached flour got rid of all my stomach problems years before the medical field discovered H Pylori as the cause. It still works for me - Anytime I want the misery, all I have to do is eat a couple of bites of anything made with bleached flour. Usually this occurs when I eat something that I didn't know was made with bleached flour. My stomach tells me about it in a hurry.

Hi. My husband has the same ulcer issues and, as we don't own a juicer, he simply chews the raw cabbage leaves. He'll take half a leaf at a time to chew very slowly before swallowing. He nibbles several leaves on and off throughout the day as he remembers to do so. He finds it very quickly takes care of the ulcer pain & usually only needs to do it for that one day to find relief. I'm sure there is very little juice in those few leaves so you're right... Very little goes a long way. No need for massive dosing here with those unfortunate side affects for overdosing.


Pepto-Bismol

I want to thank Judith from Indiana for her post on pink bismuth!!!

I've tried many, many things listed here and elsewhere but I needed something affordable, easily accessible and simple to prepare and her information was accurate - I googled it - it DOES kill h-pylori. Doctors don't tell you why they add bismuth to the other treatments they give for h-pylori/ulcers. It calmed the pain and the burning so well, I was finally able to lie down instead of trying to sleep upright.

BUT, what what else I did that really surprised me: I've been using cayenne capsules, but they didn't really do the trick because my esophagus was so involved, so I went to cayenne in a glass of water warm or cold, and yesterday I decided to add an equal amount (1 tsp) of Turmeric to my cayenne. A short time later, I couldn't figure out what I did to get that old familiar well being feeling that I used to have before I got sick. I traced what I did and it came down to adding turmeric. Cayenne alone didn't do that, although it did help with the pain, but together with the turmeric it was dramatic. So I fix the drink now at least a couple of times a day, but especially keep a mug by my bed for night and have a straw in it.

Then I use bismuth during the night as needed. It's like somebody gave me back a shot of my old energy also. I still get some twinges of pain, but I'm getting more sleep than I've had for a long, long time. Now what I will do, to get the most out of this is fix a cup of warm water with slippery elm powder (1 tablespoon), then add 1 teaspoon of cayenne and 1 teaspoon of turmeric and get the full benefit of all three.

Probiotic With Bifidobacterium Bifidum
Posted by P. Raghavan (Virudhunagar, Tn, India) on 04/22/2017

Re: Probiotic with B. Bifidum to cure Ulcer.

I have selected two brands of multi strain probiotic capsules with B. Bifidum and B. Breve from Amazon.com. They are selected with the following conditions:

1) More than 1000 customer reviews.

2) Average customer ratings is more than 4.0 .

3) Contains at least 15 probiotic strains.

They are :

1) Hyperbiotics PRO-15.

. 6280 customer reviews.

. 15 probiotic strains.

. Average customer ratings = 4.3.

. Price = US$ 24.95 for 60 capsules.

2) ULTRA-30 Probiotic.

. 1117 customer reviews.

. 18 probiotic strains.

. Average customer ratings = 4.5 .

. Price = US$ 28.95 for 60 capsules.

One can use similar techniques to select the brand from other online sites. Since these multi strain probiotic capsules contain other probiotic strains also, they can control other medical problems due to probiotic imbalance such as : Diabetes Type 2, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, etc.

Best Wishes,

P. Raghavan.

Janet, I'm interested in your ibs-d getting cured, but I'm having a hard time following your post. Can you tell me, in a nutshell, what you did? It sounds like you're saying stay away from the calcium/multivitamin. But what, exactly, should I take? I cannot take magnesium due to the ibs, although I do apply magnesium oil in the morning after my shower and again before bed. I'd love to get the ibs-d and insomnia fixed!!!


Fresh Baker's Yeast
Posted by David Starr (Honolulu, Hawaii) on 08/31/2016

I seem to remember reading in Henry Bieler's book, "Food is Your Best Medicine" (1965?) that fresh raw moist baker's yeast on an EMPTY stomach (maybe mixed with tomato juice?) heals stomach ulcers. Please get the book to confirm if this is correct before trying this. I just wanted to put out another option in case it might help someone.

PLEASE, if you use apple cider vinegar for your ulcer, it MUST BE RAW UNCOOKED vinegar. Otherwise it will just make your ulcer worse. You can put a bunch of good water in a blender and for each cup put in at least one teaspoon of the raw vinegar and also the same amount of raw honey for each cup of water. Blend it. It comes out nice and frothy. Drink it all day long. I put the left overs in the fridge so it gets nice and cold. It is a miracle drink for ulcers. It may feel like it is burning but that is to be expected. Ulcers are usually like an open wound. At least that is what it feels like to me. I get this ulcerated problem on and off but am always able to heal it on my own. My issue is stress. I also have a tendency to eat too much salsa and other hot foods and sometimes coffee. If I am stressed and have these things, oh boy watch out.

I also find that just spoons of raw honey give me a lot of relief. I may have 3 or 4 a day. The other thing is aloe vera juice. I buy it in liquid form at a place like whole Foods. It is usually uncooked. It really gives me a lot of relief. Tonight I took a clove of garlic and a chunk of fresh ginger, chopped it up, put in a peppermint tea bag, then poured hot water over that in a cup. After it cooled a bit, I put a spoon of raw honey. I then ate some of the garlic and ginger chunks. It really helped. I am afraid to try cabbage juice because I am an A blood type and if this is really scientific (eat right for your blood type) I feel that it may make me worse. The book says vinegar is not for A blood types either but since it is raw, I figure it is ok. Especially since I get such relief from it especially when mixed with raw honey. Happy healing to us all. I hope.

Seabuckthorn oil is 100% effective for stomach ulcers. Make sure it is a real one, not processed in a capsule form. I know a person who was scheduled for a surgery to repair an ulcer and by pure chance was given this oil and in 3 days she had to cancel the surgery. Other comments I received-I am a god sent savior. A person in the UK was so impressed that she planted it in her yard. Works for colitis as well.

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.

I tried cabbage in 2011 before my first hospitalization from a duodenal ulcer. But maybe I didn't do it right. I'll try it again. I know I found it has glutamine on it so I took high doses of glutamine too. Didn't help. Could be probiotics. I take those. No go. But in the rat studies where they have the rats cysteine and B6, one of the studies also gave hydrogen sulfide, which is a metabolite of cysteine in the metabolic pathway, and that worked too. In the rat study. Interesting because you reminded me of that when you mentioned the sulfide smell in the cabbage you spit out.

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.

Cabbage Juice

I was having a problem with stomach ulcers after I had to take antibiotics for an ear infection. I was searching for natural remedies, since the last time I had the same problem about 4 years ago I was prescribed acid reflux medication that just made it worse. I came across information about cabbage juice and decided to give it a try.

I made my juice from fresh organic cabbage with my vitamix and drank 3 glasses of it per day. On the second day I started to notice how it eased my stomach pains and now that I've been drinking it for a week, almost all my pains have gone away. I'm going to stick with this dose for another week at least and probably will drink a few glasses a week after that beacause this seems to be really good stuff.

I'm so very grateful for everyone sharing this information and for me it has done miracles. I can really recommend cabbage juice to anyone suffering from stomach ulcers.

Just want to share that I've got an ulcer, too. I had been using aloe vera straight from the leaf. Just cut off 2 inches, (the leaves are big!) peel it down to just the clear gel inside, pop it in a blender with the juice of a lime or lemon, 5 times the amount of juice in water, some sweetener and drink it down first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It worked great! Until I ran out of aloe vera! :( you can sometimes find it fresh like that in international grocery stores for quite a good price - in the produce section.

I have goats and they have to be getting all their vitamins and minerals for their milk to be sweet and tasty. Why would we think they are any different from us?
Anyway, their milk hasn't cured me. I always test negative for H pylori. Another Dr I read today insisted it was campylobacter pylori. Anyway I take oregano oil for anti parasite and I think that is what scares off the pylori bacterias. It's pretty potent stuff.

I developed an ulcer from daily aspirin and Plavix use. I've been on various PPI drugs for months with little success. I decided to try cabbage juice. Blended about 24oz in the morning and split it into 3 or 4 glasses consumed throughout the day. After about 10 days I'm feeling much better. It seems that the cabbage juice did the trick. I'm not 100% there yet but getting there.

You may have food allergies that can be attributed to your stomach problems. So while you may be helping any ulcers or too high or low acidity in the stomach with these remedies, you will probably continue to have problems if you are eating foods that you are allergic to. I would start by eliminating all dairy from your diet for 2 weeks and see if stomach issues improve. I would also eliminate gluten, soy and corn. Elimination diets show you how your body responds to certain foods. Good luck

stomache ulcer

I am so amazed by the fact that , for years i have gone to the doctor for a terrible stmache ulcer that i had. I was diagnosed at the age of 25. I was told that my ulcer was caused by a bacteria, H. pylori. Anyway, i was prescribe on numerous occasions, prevacid and prevpac.The prev pac cause me to get a yeast infection and bacteria vaginoisis that would not go away no matter what. finally, after years of suffering and research, i decided i was going to treat myself. I bought Diatomaceous earth, Clay (Terramin), and powdered wheatgrass. I mixed the diatomaceous earth together, half and half. The wheat grass did not taste so hot so i bought empty capsules and stuffed the wheatgrass in. Every morning before i eat i would drink a tablespoon full of my DE and clay mixture in an 8 ounce glass of water. I also at the same time take 4 of the wheatgrass capsules. I do this every morning and everynight before bed. within 2 week the pain in my stomache was gone. my yeast infection disappeared. the horrible smell caused by the bacteral vaginoisis disaapeared with only a small amount of discharge remaining. Also i suffer from fibroids and i no longer feel them nor the pain that they cause.

ACV and Baking Soda, Cayenne, Glutamine

Are you talking about stomach ulcer?

The juice from fresh cabbage will heal your ulcer - I think is killing also the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria. There is at least one post on Earthclinic about how to take the juice.

Manuka honey (factor 16 ) is also good to clear the bacterial infection and heal the ulcer. You have to think of the honey as an antibiotic. Take one tsp every 2 hours (morning to night) for two weeks at least. After that reduce the quantity to one tsp, three times a day for a couple of weeks.

Your medication not working could be because you have stomach cancer. If that is the case start drinking 1. 5 to 2 liters/ day of a infusion made from equal parts of Stinging Nettle and Calendula (small sips spread throughout the day). Use one heaped tsp from each plant for 1/4 liter, infuse the plants for 3 to 4 minutes.

I have collected a number of suggestions, and the one that worked best was potato broth. After eating this once a day I experienced more relief than from any medication such as prilosec or nexium. Three cups water, two medium potatoes, one ounce spinach, half a chopped onion, couple teaspoons of Knorr potato leak soup mix, chopped clove of garlic. cook until the onion is soft, and mash it down into a soup. You will be amazed how well this works for ulcer pain, reflux, and stomach problems in general.

One other thing to mention is ginger. This is a natural anti inflammatory, which is quite effective in revealing nausea from an ulcer or stomach condition. "Ginger People" makes some little ginger chews (made in Indonesia). I have been sucking on 1-2 per day, what a relief!

Paul, If you've read these posts on stomach ulcers, then you know they aren't that difficult to heal. You mentioned, however, that you have fibromyalgia which indicates that you have severe gut dysbiosis and a failing immune system. You're stomach is over run by harmful bacteria, and so is your small and large intestines. First, recognize that your Doctor doesn't know what he is talking about. Second, you need to focus on healing your gut through diet change as well as taking powerful probiotics and healing foods. I highly recommend reading "Gut and Psychology Syndrom" by Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride. Go to her website where there are many resources for people in your situation.) Remember "all disease begins in the Gut" - Hippocrates

Garlic Cured Stomach Ulcer

Raw garlic virtually instantly cured stomach ulcer! Once I knew I had a duodenal stomach ulcer I check the net and read of many cures but none so obvious as garlic. The nausea of five weeks went away in two hours and the next morning my appetite had fully returned! Eight crushed cloves a day for eight days (on bread under humus or pesto) - miraculous!

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Mykey (Grover Beach, California) on 07/07/2008

Important news for those who suffer from ulcers: what you should know is that ulcers are caused by bacteria called h. pylori. Most doctors do not know that h. pylori lives in the stomach lining, and it does not live in the bloodstream. Therefore blood tests to detect h. pylori are useless, and a waste of your money. A breath test to detect h. pylori IS effective, most doctors do not know this test exists, and will not use the effective breath test. In the absence of a "positive test result", many doctors will fail to treat the cause.
With this in mind, please read the info from the CDC website:
http://www.cdc.gov/ulcer/myth.htm

When treated with the correct combination of two antibiotics, 98% of ulcers can be cured in two weeks or less! However, most doctors do not know or prescribe the correct antibiotics.

And then again, some individuals (like myself) do not have immunity to h. pylori and will become re-infected after a short period of time.
Which leads to the conclusion that treatments such as cabbage juice, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, cloves, turmeric, etc...may very well be worth a try due to the action of either creating an environment in which h. pylori cannot live, OR boosting the immune response to the h. pylori infection.

Although the CAUSE of ulcers is now well known, effective treatment and effectively training doctors remains elusive. So then, thank you for your kind recommendations which may indeed prove just as effective as antibiotics, or MORE effective! I hope to report back to you that one or more of these natural treatments IS effective.

Yes, I can wholly agree. many individuals report sensitivity to bleached flour, also butter and dairy products. Others will have difficulty with fried foods or beer. But the ulcer is already there- the flour merely sets off the bleeding and irritation. Avoiding the target food is by far the best strategy, and this is an excellent point of fact... As far as my own recent experiment with cayenne pepper capsules, 450 mg, one every other day(after the initial burn)there is no question in my case that relief from reflex and pain was obtained. The active ingredient in cayenne being capsaicin, and is indeed medically documented to shrink and destroy cancer cells (among other benefits)including prostate and lung cancer cells, yes folks it's a fact. Many doctors have been treating reflux with Nexium or Prilosec but this shuts down your digestive system and overloads the kidneys. This is treating the symptoms, not the actual cause. It's far better to restore normal digestive function than to shut off the acid in your stomach. Once again thanks to all who have shared experiences, this has been most helpful.

Hi Guys,

Last month I have been diagnosed with H pylori infection with a high antigen reading per my blood work. I was suspecting ulcer for a couple of years as my digestion and bowel movements changed signifcantly however it was not until I pushed my physician to get me tested for H Pylori only then he wrote me a test otherwise he was taking about disturbance in intestinal flora causing these problems. This has lead to worsening of my situation. I havent been through an endoscopy yet therefore I have to assume that I have ulcers in my stomach and intestine.

Every few days my stomach was bloting with Diarrhea. I wouldnt tolerate spicy food at all. I also feel dull pain in my stomach and lower left abdominal, I think it is somewhere in the small intestine. For the last coupel of month my stool color change to green and that panicked me into pushing my physician for other testes.

Anyways, he gave me Triple Therapy (combination of 3 anibiotics) Bismuth Silicylate for Hpylori treatment. I went through the treatment period whichw as very awful. After the treatment was over I felt a general sense of well being for next few weeks. Since last week I am feeling that my upset stomach symptoms are returning again.

For all this time I am also taking some herbal supplements such as Mastic Gum 500MG and Kefir. I am planning to go for a Urea Breath test late september however before I go do the test to confirm if H pylori is gone completely I am planning to take some additinal supplements mentioned here such as ACV, Cayanne, Garlic.

I'll keep posted on how it progresses. Thank you all for taking time to post your experiences here. I would like to suggest that those people who took the remedies and got cured should post there long term expereince as well so that everyone stays connected.

Hi Aching Angel, Cabbage juice will help you for your ulcers. But you have to change your life style and eating habits at least till you are cured of the ulcers. You say that you are not constipated but at the same time you pass lot of wind which indicates that the system is not cleaned up. Avoid sugar, fried things and you can take sodium bi carbonate 1/4 tea spoon in water 30--45 mts after the meals. Good Luck.

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with GERD and I suffered from acid reflux and heartburn. The medication prescribed by the doctor rather worsened my situation and I suffered a number of side effects from it. I came across a site suggesting that drinking raw cabbage juice cures acid reflux and other problems related to the stomach, such as ulcer.I did further research to confirm this and decided to give it a try.

The general suggested daily dosage is about a quart [800ml] of raw cabbage juice to be taken about 4 times daily. I found that rather too much and I started with 400ml [100ml x 4].I noticed great improvement and after one week I reduced the dosage to 300ml [100ml x 3]. After about 3 weeks of the whole therapy, I decided to take only 200ml a day. Those with stomach ulcers or acute cases of acid reflux might need to take the full dosage.

I have stopped drinking cabbage juice since about 10 months now and I haven't had any serious reflux problems. For those who would like to try it, PLEASE NOTE that it is said to have strong impact on the thyroid glands [the more reason why I never consumed 800ml a day!]. Not to mention the stench - it is better stored in an air-tight water bottle and kept in the fridge. Good luck to all, and thanks for the great site.

Hello Charlotte, On the ulcer issue, sounds like you've gone down a frustrating road. I've had great success in dealing with ulcers with a three part program plus diet. First on diet; no coffee including de caff. No cokes or fruit juices that are high in acid such as orange juice. Tomatoes are off also. The no acid diet must be adhered to for at least two months. Then the supplement part: Kill the infection (most ulcers have an underlying infection) with Colloidal Silver ...I take two tablespoons on empty stomach twice daily, especially good at night before bedtime. Fifteen min later take DGL tablets (licorice extract) and then fifteen minutes later a quarter cup of high quality aloe vera drink. That for two months. I have an MD friend who used to make fun of all my remedies but after her frustrating attempt to rid herself of a tenacious stomach ulcer, she tried above formula and was successful in healing. Pretty funny as she went from making fun of me to now wanting me to go to an herbal school and become an herbal doc.

Hi Ria, Where was your discomfort? Also, I find that a pinch of cayenne is hot already .. you tolerated a tsp of cayenne plus turmeric in one sitting? Or did you sip throughout the day?
