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.

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.

Great site... I've just been diagnosed with h. Pylori, a bacterial infection of the digestive system, currently with upper stomach pain and severe hives. I will try some of the suggestions posted here and report back, it's april 6, 2011..... Something else I read if you have ulcers stay away from taking enzymes, it aids h. pylori development....

Worked Temporarily

This regiment worked tremendously well for a week then it stopped completely. I don't have a clue as to what happened. Very frustrating...

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!

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

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.


Hydrogen Peroxide

This is interesting information. Did you use the H2O2 35% food grade? Does it also cure peptic ulcer?


Hydrogen Peroxide

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 have been suffering from stomach pain and nausea from a stomach ulcer for years and have seen doctors multiple times. I was told always to take antacids and avoid coffee and alcohol. Avoiding those things helped, but the antacids made the nausea increase and of course it felt like my food just didn't digest. If my stomach was empty I would be in agony, the gnawing pain of an ulcer, and frequently had bouts of nausea that made it hard to be productive.

I tried aloe vera which had some success, digestive enzymes- didn't really help, probiotics- were useful but didn't help the ulcer. I had heard of cayenne for ulcers, but was hesitant to try- the idea of putting hot pepper on a tender stomach seemed crazy! But as the pain has recently been worsening and I don't have much money to see a doctor I was desperate.

I read up a little more and decided to get a bottle of cayenne capsules. I followed the instructions- 1 pill three times a day (455 mg). The first one I took, I took it on an empty stomach before a meal and fairly quickly I felt it take effect- it did burn and I felt increasing pain at first- and I worried I had made a mistake in taking it. However, the pain eased up and as the burn subsided it felt better. I was able to eat and felt for the first time that my food was digesting better. I have continued this for just over a week now- taking it with meals- and the pain lessens every day. I even woke up in the morning PAIN FREE!! After having stomach pain every morning for years, it was an amazing feeling! I will continue taking it for at least another week to ensure that the ulcer is fully healed- also avoiding coffee, tea, alcohol, and other irritants- but I would definitely label this a remedy a success for me! Cayenne has quickly become my favorite home remedy!

YES, CABBAGE JUICE WILL CURE ULCERS, BUT BUT BUT, IT HAS TO BE CONSUMED FRESH FRESH!! YOU CANNOT STORE IT IN THE FRIDGE OR IT LOSES ALL IT HEALING POWER WITHIN JUST A FEW MINUTES OF BEING JUICED.

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......

Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera Juice

I've been having stomach problems for a while now. Symptoms started with heartburn, acid reflux, and such and then went on to burning in my stomach and bouts of neusea that would come on out of the blue and last for hours. After researching it I deduced that it was an ulcer probably caused by H. Pylori. I started with ACV, 1 Tbs. 2-4 times a day in juice or water and raw honey for a couple of weeks which provided temporary relief and controlled the acid reflux but I was still having stomach pains and neusea.

When I had stomach pain I mixed cayenne pepper in hot water and that would provide me with relief of the pain for a while. Then a friend told me about Aloe Vera juice and how it would kill H. Pylori. I bought the whole leaf version and started drinking 4 oz. with grape juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I sip it until it's gone, I don't guzzle it. I'm amazed that after day one of taking it and now 2 weeks later I have not had one symptom of the ulcer or acid reflux. I have more energy and I'm losing some weight to boot. I did have one day a couple of days after starting the aloe that I felt really crappy, like I was coming down with a bad cold or flu but no one I knew, including my wife and kids, was sick. I think it was the detox effect of the Aloe and ACV. It lasted about 12 hours then went away as quickly as it came on.

To be fair I must say that I was not diagnosed by any doctor and I should list everything I'm taking because it might be different things that are curing me. Every day I take a multi-vitamin, about 400-800 IUs of extra vitamin D, 1000-2000 mg. Flaxseed oil, 1200-2400 mg. Fish oil with omegas 3 and 6, 1200 mg. of red yeast rice and 50 mg. of C0Q10 for high cholesterol, 50 mg. 5-HTP and 500 mg. Acetyl-L Carnitine for anxiety, and I also take, like I said earlier, several Tbs. of ACV. I also drink a yogurt drink for the probiotics. I started taking a couple of Tbs. of local raw honey and then switched to Manuka honey which also kills H. Pylori. I haven't felt this good in years so I must be doing something right. I owe it all to researching everything here on EC. Thank you guys so much for being here and spreading the knowledge of natural remedies.

I'm having terrible stomach pains due to acid reflux. I'm seriously contemplating adding every ingredient discussed here on the ulcer page:

Cabbage Juice
Cayenne pills
Apple Cider Vinegar
Baking Soda
Oil Oregano
Honey
Pine nut oil
Ginger
Turmeric Powder

And making fruit smoothies with yogurt. Would mixing all of this together create any ill effects? Or lessen the effectiveness?


Licorice
Posted by Lisa (Hartford, Ct) on 06/24/2010

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.

Pine Nut Oil

Pine Nut Oil for stomach ulcer! My daughter had been suffering for almost a year from horrible pain and the nausea that accompanies a peptic ulcer. Due to food allergies, her already restricted diet dwindled even more, and from the combination of almost constant pain, hunger and weariness she found herself spiraling into depression. She tried Mastic Gum and ACV for several weeks and got some relief. She also tried colliodial silver and slippery elm for several weeks with limited relief. Then I found out about the oil. One teaspoon three times a day (not diluted is best) and within a few days she felt better. Less than two weeks later she's pain free and eating foods she hasn't enjoyed in ages! I am posting this because I hope this can help someone else with the same problem. We were at the end of our ropes and after trying so many other therapies, drinking a little oil seemed no stranger than the others. However, this really worked for us!

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.

Thank you Lisa, for the information. I was having terrible pain after meals and didn't know the cause. Still don't know the cause, but the cayenne has stopped the pain and my entire system seems to be working much better. This simple treatment saved me a lot of time, money and the need for expensive drugs that seldom work well.

Am 70 and have acid reflux for years. Got herbs from the Chinese doc and things are better. If you think that you might have ulcers, cranberry juice is great. I drink it with soda water to make it more palatable - no sugar. Find that sugar really starts the acid reflux. As long as I avoid it, I'm good. Also Health food stores have some good digestion teas that help.

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.

I was suffering from ulcers for 2 years and couldnt find relief. I was prescribed carafate which covers the ulcer in an attempt to promote healing. With little success I tried herbal remedies and a healthy diet, eating natural foods, such as fruits, vegtables, and lean meats. I discovered extra virgin coconut oil and began taking 3 Tbls orally, within days I began to feel much better! Though ive read books that claim that coconut oil can cure ulcers alone I think it was a combination of the medication and good diet along with the coconut oil that cured my ulcer. If you are or ever do suffer the pain of an ulcer I strongly recomend the use of coconut oil, its a life saver!

Will the ACV work for dogs too? I was actually giving her ACV when she got the ulcer and thought that I had caused it by giving her that. I was thinking it was too acidic for her. Now I'm wondering if I should put her back on it.


ACV and Baking Soda, Cayenne, Glutamine
Posted by Bill (Oregon City, Oregon) on 08/05/2009

I have had stomach issues since childhood. Last year I got to where I had acid reflux daily, so bad I could not sleep lying down. Then a few months a go it changed. My food was slow to digest and I felt like I had some sort of virus. I could only eat cereal and yogurt. It got to the point to where I could not eat without getting major cramps. I went to the doctor. After X-rays and blood test (all my test were clean) he prescribed Prilosec and Reglan. I tried them for a week and had some relief, but was not getting better. I was up one night or early morning, searching the net for any information. I found earthclinic and started my ACV and cayenne regiment (I did not have Glutamine at the time). After my first drink I could tell a difference. After 4 days, I was able to eat and sleep better. That weekend I purchased Glutamine and have been doing the ACV and cayenne drink with the glutamine capsule 3 times a day for a week. I feel normal most of the time, eat regular and sleep much better. I intend to stay on the regiment until I have fully recovered and cut back to once a day to stay that way. I have another doctors appointment in a week. From my research I believe I have a bacterial infection or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). I intend on asking for the breath test to know for sure.
