I've got several ulcers and have been taking acv, slippery elm, dgl, marshmallow root, & much other natural stuff for it. Doing fine until this past weekend. All of a sudden I've gotten much worse. Now I've started having diarrhea and the dr says it's due to the acid. What can I do? I don't want to take antacids--beside being drugs, that I try to avoid, they give me side effects of insomnia and terrible leg cramps. I'm at my wits end. It seems chamomile calms the belly, but now the I'm spending too much time in the restroom while I should be working. Not good. The only change over the weekend was that I ran out of my probiotic and had only yogurt (natural, homemade) and a product called 'gut shots'.

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!

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?

Hello, I have been suffering from an ulcer, undiagnosed as I am scared of endscopy procedure. When you have pain why don't you try the cayenne pepper? It relives pain quick. Also the ACV, try without the baking soda and it should help. I have till now tried: manuka honey( did not provide relief, I think I might not be using the right brand :() which brand do you use? Aloe vera which I find quiet a relief for the pain if I keep sipping it here and there throughout the day. Pine nut oil: only had it twice for two days for the bleeding ulcer and I think it helped. Not been regular, quiet expensive for a small bottle. Mastic gum: I was on and off with first bottle apparently you have to take it regularly for a month or two, so I have ordered two new bottles. Dgl: I dont know if its helping but I keep taking it. My fav, cayenne pepper, sounds odd was hesitated to try but wow! Really relives pain and stops bleeding of the ulcer. Chamomile and fenugreek tea: I dont know if its helping but I am on and off. Cabbage juice: I think it made my pain worse so avoiding it for while. Recently looking into an alkaline and meat free diet I am mostly sugar free anyway to see it helps. Also going to add ACV 2x aday to see if it makes any difference. I feel so good most days but not quiet success with healing. But I am praying a lot. Will keep updated.

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 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.

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?

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!

Potato Broth

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!

Probiotic With Bifidobacterium Bifidum

Peptic ulcers are mostly caused by H. Pyroli infection in the digestive system. There is an article available in the net titled " Probiotic Identified To Treat Ulcer ". According to this article, researchers from Spain identified B. Bifidum has an inhibition level of 95 % in test tube and tested its activity against H. Pylori infection in mice. After 21 days, mice treated with B. Bifidum developed fewer ulcers than the control group.

There is another article titled " Anti-ulcer effects of lactic acid bacteria and their cell wall polysaccharides " by Nagaoka et al. According to this article, B. Bifidum and B. Breve were administered orally to rats with acetic acid induced gastric ulcers. The results indicated that these bacteria provide protective systems in the gastric ulcer model.

From these articles, it is clear that B. Bifidum and B. Breve work against the bad bacteria H. Pylori and provide natural protection against H. Pylori as long as they are in sufficient numbers in the digestive system.

To cure ulcer, one need to take a multi strain probiotic capsule containing B. Bifidum and B. Breve in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast for 60 days. There are many brands of multi strain probiotic capsules containing B. Bifidum and B. Breve available online. One can select the brand based on customer ratings and reviews.

Best Wishes.

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.

My friend's husband was suffering from ulcers and I read that eating raw honey would cure even the worst case of ulcers. The book I have does not tell you how to take the honey, but I believe my friend's husband just ate it straight off the spoon and it did cure him. This same book mentioned that cabbage juice was good for ulcers also, saying you had to drink a quart a day.

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.

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.

I was born with chronic stomach ulcer. I consulted many doctors but no doctors could cure me. There were even times I thought I was dying due to the pain. But, one fine day, a friend of mine from India told me that turmeric power is a great medicine. So, I put one spoon of turmeric power in a glass of water. After two days all my severe pain had disappeared. It was a miracle! The best time to take is early morning while your stomach is still empty and in the evening before dinner. It works best while your stomach is empty. But, at the same time it is very important to control our diets. Do not take butter, any sweet stuff, coffee, tea, cold drinks, hot chili, excess oil and drink lots of water every day (at least 2 and a half litre daily). Eat on time, do not eat between meals, and do not drink hot or warm water; hot or warm water worsen the gas in the stomach. Turmeric is the best and cheapest medicine for stomach problems. Besides, I also use the paste for any skin problems, pimples, boils, minor cut; they really work well. I don't go to doctors for every little thing because I know that I can save a lot of money by simply using turmeric powder at home. Lastly, by drinking turmeric powder regularly, you will have a very clear beautiful complexion.

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
Pine nut oil
Turmeric Powder

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

To the one wanting to mix all the ingredients. . . Try it and tell us about it :) I doubt it could be any more dangerous for than taking pharmaceuticals, since the ingredients of the mix you want to make are all-natural :)

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....

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.

I would like to second the use of turmeric. I tried both turmeric and cabbage juice and the first works better. I take about 50 ml water with a pinch of turmeric powder before go to bed. make sure it's your last sip so you won't dilute it afterwards with water.

I'm not sure if my ulcer is cured, but I definitely feel better.

Just a warning to fair-skinned people, turmeric is wonderful for skin, (I use it freshly mixed with cream) but may make you look yellow for quite a while.

I believe combining your remedies would be ok, however the best times for the healing would be empty stomach eg first waking and before bed. At these times I would suggest the honey with turmeric and/or cayenne pepper. Also have the honey just at room temperature, I have found sticky (cool) clumpy honey the best when used medicinally, as it tends to stay where it is needed longer.

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.
