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!

I developed an ulcer from taking NSAID's. The pain kept me up half the night and my work performance suffered with the resulting sleep deprivation. I took some sprouted wheat bread and applied a layer of Hummus to it, then about 3 finely chopped cloves of raw garlic, and though it was hot, the pain subsided in 20 minutes. Since then, I've added 5 to 6 cloves of raw garlic to soup. After 30 minutes, no pain whatsoever. In between meals I drink Aloe Vera Juice (Certified Organic 99% @ trader joes, no sweetener)... Within 2 days, I feel way better and experience no pain. Going to continue this for at least 2 weeks. Many thanks!
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.
thank you much for your response- it helps me a lot.
I always had a sensitive stomach, food intolerances, diarrhea after meal times and never could eat that much so I was always underweight.
Just for awhile I tried some of the remedies recomended by people here in earth clinic and I got so much better and I'm actually gaining weight but along with it one of the things I experienced myself and was really helpful specially with my upset stomach and many other gastrointestinal issues was " yogurt ".
I'm not really tolerated with dairy products but yogurt makes me feel good about my whole intestinal tracts.
I add some spoons of fresh and sweet yogurt to a glass and mix it with water and stir it ( better not to be too diluted ) , add a little salt to it to make it tasty and take it 2/3 times daily, it works both on empty stomach or when I'm full , hope it helps somebody.
Ok guys. I had a weak immune system for over a year now. Back in January I ate some little ceasers pizza and noticed that I couldn't have normal bowel movements. Around Febuary I started feeling bloated and couldn't use the rest room properly. I didn't eat for 3 days and became dehydrated and ended up in the hospital.
They rehydrated me and told me my ct scans, blood test, urine test came out all normal. They said I probably have a stomach virus or a ulcer.
They prescribed me nexium (omeprazole) and belladonna alkaloids (never took it cause of the serious side effects). Started treatment the first day of march with omeprazole over the counter. 14 day treatment and durning those 2 weeks I was able to eat normally. After the treatment I went cold turkey and felt like I was dying.
Thus lead me to this site and I tired eating garlic raw. Less than 2hrs later the pain and nausea went away. I kept eating garlic for over a month also drinking aloe vera mango flavor.
Felt alot better but I still have a sharp lower right pain on my abdominal. So Im going to try the DGL and L Glutamine. I read after hours of research online that people with ulcers have low levels of L glutamine and since I haven't been eating right for the past year It wont hurt to try.
So after weeks of eating garlic I dont have any burning sensation like before I can tell now when I'm hungry. I occasionally have sharp ab pain when ever I feel my lower right ab. I don't do ab workouts not until my L glutamine capsules arrive to help the healing and reduce soreness.
Try to workout daily at least get 15mins of excerise preferably powerwalking. Thats what I do every day when ever I feel bloated to help my digestive system. Don't forget to stretch those muscles!
Things I eat daily (All organic)
1-3 Garlic Cloves through out the day
Flax plus pumpkin flax granola (flaxseed)
Extra lean meats/ 1 large brown egg every other day
Brown Rice and Whole grain bread.
Vegetables. pasta. Spinach.
bottled water from springs not purified. Purified water is mostly acidic to the human body. Spring water is usually neutral at a ph level 7. example Arrowhead, crystal geyser or evian is best but a bit expensive.
2 to 3 apples and bananas a day. 1 kiwi
Juice 7 long Carrots with one whole orange
take a multivitamin pill
take a extra vitamin d 134 IU and Calcium 334mg pill
Going to increase my fiber intake with water so I have normal bulky stools. Flaxseed is helping me out alot with bowel movements. Will post update once my L Glutamine arrives and once I start taking DGL. Might try cayenne powder.
I had a colonoscopy done because when I had my fisical they did a stool guiaiac test and blood was found (in my stool). The colonoscopy revealed that I have an ulcer in the small intestine. I don't have any symptoms and I have not seen any blood in my stool with the naked eye. Since I now know that I have an ulcer, I want to heal it naturally but my question is: how am I going to know when the ucler has healed if I have no symptoms?

If its a bleeding ulcer.. Your stools will be black fom the digeted blood. When its healed stools wont be black. For bleeding in the colon the stools will be red. Take blackstrap mollases, everday.. Then stop, for a couple of days and inspect the stools for color. If they are normal looking it should have healed.

Hi its rosa, I just wanted to ask if someone was precribed ulcyte sucrafate tablets by docter for duodenal ulcer. I have been taking 160 tablets for 2 months still I have a sour taste when I swallow saliva. Pliz can someone tell me whats the best remedy for it using honey. I cant take Apple Cider Vinegar coz its too strong for me.

Hi Rosa, I am reading an Adelle Davis book at the moment and although I have never had ulcers of any kind I can tell you what she suggests. She says that by no means should people with duodenal ulcers take baking soda as it accelerates the emptying of the stomach leaving it exposed longer to the action of acids, the same with a diet with little fats. She thinks that almost any deficiency can cause ulcers, folic acid is one of them but also all kinds of vitamins, A, B2, B6, C, E, cholin and pantothenic acid. Eggs, being very rich in cystine seem to be an important nutrient for people with such problems. You should be allowed an unrestricted diet if you want to heal quicker. Fresh citrus juices also accelerate healing. And you can eat fried foods and high protein meals. Baking soda and antiacids delay healing. Most important, she says you should learn to blow off steam! In another book I have they advise fish oil as well as gamma oryzanol and cabbage juice or else, if you don't like the taste, you can take glutamine 8,000 mg a day for 4 weeks. I hope this helps......

Since you have never had an ulcer let me tell you that an ulcer sufferer does need a restricted diet. Citrus juice and tomatoes are the worst as is fried and fatty foods. Believe me, I have an ulcer and these have triggered attacks that have brought me to my knees in pain the like you cannot imagine. Although Adele Davis meant well, many of her theories are not effective.
(Great Falls, Mt)
What Adelle Davis says about not restricting the diet sounds about right for my earlier stages of stomach ulcer a few months ago. Eating anything made the pain better then. But as the ulcers progress deeper and spread, you have to restrict your diet if you don't treat it with home remedies. Once the ulcers are set in your stomach good, eating anything doesn't work anymore. Adelle is right about a deficiency bringing it on. I became deficient when I lost my appetite mourning the loss of my mother. I didn't eat well for about a year. Right now I am getting a lot of help from mastic gum directly from Greece. I get it from the popular auction site.
I got an ulcer a few years back in the upper part of my stomach. The pain was so bad, it kept me awake at night. My doctor told me it was angina and that i was just getting old. I was 38! So I looked it up online and all the symptoms pointed to an ulcer. So, I looked up home remedies and found honey as one for ulcers. I made peanut butter and honey sandwiches for my lunches for a week. In one day I felt relief and in three days all symptoms were gone. During the past 3 years, I have felt the symptoms returning twice. Both times I drank honey right from the bottle, twice a day for 2 days, and it cleared right up. I use regular honey, you know the kind in the plastic squeeze bears, and it works for me. Thanks, earth clinic, love the site.
Honey and Oatmeal
I had really bad pains from gastric ulcers and have found an instant cure to stop the pain in a few minutes. I took several spoonfulls of honey and glass of water and ate instant oatmeal in hot water and the pain lessened enough for me to go back to bed and sleep.
EXCELLENT FOR STOMACH ULCERS. KILLS THE BACTERIA THAT FEEDS ON THE WOUND. TRY 3 DROPS IN A FULL GLASS OF WATER 3 TIMES DAILY FOR 3 WEEKS OR AS LONG AS IT TAKES.

I use H202/baking soda, H202/colloidal silver. It has cured bad breath, whitened teeth and healed gum sores. The H202/colloidal silver cured a stomach ulcer caused by h pylori bacteria. H202 is marvelous. I have been using it to water my plants for about a year and only recently learned about it's other wonderful uses. I am going to start using Bill Munro's inhalation method shortly.
Kefir for Ulcers:
I have had chronic heartburn for months now, but about a week ago I started to have agonizing pains especially at night under my left ribcage, so bad that I haven't slept for days. My doctor doubled my Zantac from 150 mg once to twice a day, and I had Carafate that I used intermittently, but that didn't do. I also tried cabbage juice, slippery elm, DGL, Siberian Pine Nut Oil, bananas, probiotics, ACV, etc., and nothing helped -- until I tried plain, ordinary kefir.
I drank the first cupful of keir and I could feel relief fairly quickly, so then I repeated it often, as frequently every 2 hours or so, as soon as I felt the slightest discomfort, all day long. Today is my second day and the only reason I was able to sleep during the night was because I kept drinking it as soon as I could feel the burn/pain or before. I don't feel that agonizing pain now, and I don't appear to have the need for drinking it as frequently. Pain is an indicator and as of right now, it has diminished dramatically. I don't think things have healed yet, but it's significant that I feel so much better.
Kefir is a thick liquid full of probiotics, and it coats the tissues in addition providing the bacteria needed - and not quite the same as taking capsules. In addition, it's cheaper than all the other things I've tried that didn't work. I also reduced my food intake to softer, more easily digested foods, such as bananas, oatmeal and to non-abrasive, easily digestible foods just to keep from aggravating things, if only until I get straightened out enough and then just watch what I eat afterwards. I think I will still continue some of my medication to reduce acid, but only for a short time to make sure I continue doing well.
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.
Lactobacillus reuteri is the now and new H pylori cure for ulcers. Search and find out about it. Thanks.
I'm recovering from stomach ulcers, and I wanted to share some of the things that helped me. The ulcers got so bad that I was vomiting blood, and prescription pills do more harm than good (plus, I don't have insurance, so I can't keep going to the doctor). The most helpful thing by far is licorice. There was a study done in Europe some time ago that found that only three things really help ulcers: rest & relaxation, quitting smoking, and licorice. Apparently licorice forms a protective coating against the lining of the stomach, and not only eases the pain, but also allows the ulcer to heal by protecting it from stomach acid. For some reason the study was never published in the U.S. You can buy chewable licorice extract pills (effective but disgusting) or drink licorice tea (a acquired taste but amazing stuff). Bananas also work wonders when your stomach feels like it's on fire with acid. Ginger also works really well for indigestion, and especially for nausea. I find that eating crystallized ginger is more effective than drinking ginger tea. However, the helpful effects of ginger don't last anywhere near as long as those of licorice.
Hi Lisa ,
How do you feel now? I have minor irritations in my stomach and I believe it was caused by taking NSAID for about 10 days, stupid doctors. I currently taking DGL licorice, Mastic gum and apple cider vinegar three times daily.
Since I am from hartford CT also, I was wondering would you suggest anything else and what did you eat during that period of healing. Any feedback or suggestion would be good and I know for sure with the above I should be feeling great in a about two to three day's - Pratt
Lugol's Iodine, 2 drops every morning
I have suffered from what I believe to be a duodenal ulcer for a few years now and have experienced relief and pretty much cure from taking two drops of Lugol's iodine every morning. It is a strong earthy flavor, so I wait for my coffee to cool to warm/lukewarm and add it then. I can't even taste in in the coffee. I wait for the coffee to cool so the high heat doesn't inactivate any of the properties of the iodine molecule. I noticed relief relatively quickly - about a week of doing it every day. I hopes this helps at least one person.
Makabuhay Stem Juice
Hi, I'm Justin from the Philippines. I had an ulcer back in my younger years and couldnt afford going to the doctor, so my mother made me drink a cup of warm water with "makabuhay stems" herbal medicine. (3 to 5 pcs 2 inches each) you need to beat the stems with anything hard to make the juice easily combine with the water. usually beat or press them with a glass bottom. The stems could be used for 2x more just add hot water let it cool a bit, just make sure you used fresh new stems each day. I drank it 3 times a day before a meal and in just my first glass for the 1st day I felt normal. The excruciating pain was gone. I did this routine for a week and the ulcer did not came back since. It taste bitter but worth a try. I ate soft foods in a week while on treatment mostly oat meals and broiled fish.
P. S. Do not drink this if you are pregnant or planning to conceive as it will encourage miscarriage. This drink will also start menstruation if you are having problem with your monthly period. Please try this if ever you are in the Philippines then post back with your experience. here is the link on how it looks http://www.stuartxchange.com/Makabuhay.html

I've been suffering from sporadic but agonising stomach ulcers for over a year and recently came across manuka honey as a natural remedy. Look for honey that is labelled active +10, +13, etc. I take it first thing in the morning and any time during the day when I feel that familiar old burning, gnawing pain. I've found that the best way to take it is on an empty stomach, with a teaspoonful dolloped on a small piece of bread. That way it goes straight into the stomach and should serve to coat the lining of the stomach, kill the pain and promote healing. I've had very good results with active manuka honey and understand it to be effective on any kind of ulcerated skin, wounds, etc.
