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.

Most ulcers seem to be caused by a bacteria, that can live in the extreme acidicy of the Gut. An Aussie doctor identified them a few years back. Cayenne seems to do most throat Bacteria in, id say its well worth a try.

Your gut is NOT producing enough hydrochloric acid. Thats why you have reflux. You need more good flora in there, simply provided from Apple Cider Vinegar enzymes. Perhaps other enzymes would also help- but most certainly would a really gr8 probiotic as well.

One whole cabbage chopped and blended with water, then through a strainer (this part is a little time consuming). Fill 2 big glasses and drink 1/2 glass 4 times a day. 1st 1/2 glass before breakfast, last 1/2 glass a couple hours after dinner. Also, I roll around on the living room floor to get the juice to swish around.

I just tried the cabbage juice, what happens if I drink it two hours before dinner... I added 1 cup of water as directed and drank that whole cup for the whole evening... Will something bad happen if I only consume it twice a day?

I was never tested for or diagnosed with H. Pylori, but I suspect that was a possible cause.


Cayenne
Posted by Carmel (Clacton On Sea England) on 08/08/2013

Not sure if I have an ulcer or not. Bad pain below the belly button - middle and sometimes a sharp stabbing pain to the side of it on the right. Get days where it is fine and days where it is bad, seems to be like a gnawing, twisting as if very very hungry even if eaten. No pain killers help. Taking ZANTAC. Waiting for consultation with "expert"! Some days it is fine other days the pain is almost unbearable. On those days I get diarrhea. Then not able to relax or work, etc. Very low. Tried raw cabbage juice for a while but could not get to shop or afford all of the cabbages. Took glutamine capsules, they seem to make no difference. It started when I had some raw garlic and it upset my tummy for days and went on from there. Was totally fine before that and not heli bacteria, have been checked and eliminated.

Am taking some cayenne but do not have much, just enough for a few days. Right now the stomach cannot feel worse so nothing to lose.

Dear Carmel, I may be way off base, but this sounds very much like pain that our family has had that turns out to be appendicitis. My husband had his out when he was 22. He would get this awful pain in the belly, sometimes in response to what he ate. The pain from appendicitis can by atypical--that is, pain elsewhere than where the appendix is. It can be in the back or on the left, or in the middle.

Appendicitis does NOT mean you have to have it out. It MAY mean you need to have it out. But, appendicitis is "inflammation of the appendix. " If you can get rid of the inflammation, you are fine. But if it is infected or going to rupture, you need it out. (The question is, how to know the difference!)

My teenage son has had pain near the belly button that I was sure was appendicitis. We took him to the Dr. who said it wasn't. (Same thing happened to me - I saw my OB and a regular doctor when I had attacks. They said it wasn't appendicitis. Finally, I just went to the ER and had it out. In hindsight, I would have tried other things first.)

So, we treated my son at home. He had a few attacks and responded well to home treatment. He actually hasn't had an attack in a couple of years.

Rachel Weaver, in her book, Be Your Own Doctor, has some things she does to avoid surgery for appendicitis. She says that it is important to make sure constipation is not the problem. She has an article online about appendicitis:

http://www.drmomsherbs.com/2011/05/14/appendicitis/

Anyway, when my son had an attack, I would immediately give him charcoal tablets - maybe 4 or more. I would put a large charcoal poultice over his belly. We would also rub lobelia oil on his belly to relax it. I never did give him an enema, but apparently, in the 50's if you went to the ER with suspected appendicitis, they gave you an enema. If your pain went away, they sent you home.

All this to say, I would try activated charcoal for your pain. It is amazing for gut problems even if they aren't appendicitis. You can take 1 t. - 1 T. in an 8 oz glass of water when you have the pain. Or you can take the tablets 4-6 with plenty of water. Charcoal can be constipating if you don't get enough water. Sounds like constipation is not related to you pain, though.

Also, if you can get some lobelia oil to massage into your belly, or make a charcoal or castor oil poultice (earth clinic talks about how to do these things) you may find relief. I have found great relief with castor oil poultices for gall bladder pain when I have had it.

If you start to run a fever with this pain, or can't get the pain under control in a few hours, personally, I would go to the ER. I am not quick to run to doctors, but a ruptured appendix, can of course, be fatal.

If you have an ulcer, I believe that cayenne can heal it. (Lalitha Thomas has a story in her book, "Ten Essential Herbs" about someone healing an ulcer with cayenne.) Slippery Elm Bark Powder would also be good for gut pain and problems and for an ulcer. So would comfrey tea.

Hope you find relief soon. Let us know how you are doing.

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.

Honey
Posted by Francisca (Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France) on 10/17/2010

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......

Posted by Maria (Great Falls, Mt) on 05/03/2011

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.

Garlic worked for me too. I tried several of the remedies here, and although coconut oil was somewhat helpful, none matched the effectiveness of garlic in alleviating the pain of my ulcer and allowing it to heal.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera Juice
Posted by Natural4ever (Hudson, Fl) on 09/30/2010

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.


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.

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


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!

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.

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.

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.

Melting: I am no big fan of pharmaceuticals or doctors, but I take as much advantage I can from what they have to offer. Of course they want me taking many prescriptions meds, and not let my health improve by treating only my symptoms. It's really like Paul McCartney described in the song Tug-Of-War.

Rule-of-thumb to maintain friendly relations in the medical community is "try and meet them halfway". Give them the benefit they deserve. In your case I would have done the acid reducers for a few weeks then on to the cabbage cure. In returning to the dr say "the acid reducers pills worked real well and I read about eating cabbage and that was the icing on the cake. "

Remember, dr's have the legal clout. Acid reducing pharmaceuticals heal gastric or esophageal ulcers, cabbage does not (as according to scientific demonstration by studies and trials and approved by the FDA).

I have a question, I'm afraid to take cayenne pills or ACV if I have both an ulcer and severe acid reflux. I thought spicy foods are really bad for acid reflux and ulcers. Someone please explain. I'm so afraid to make my stomach worse. Thank You.

Posted by Mama To Many (Middle, Tennessee, Usa) on 05/16/2013

Dear Dee, I used ACV for acid reflux during pregnancy and I agree, it didn't make sense that it would help, but it was amazing how much it helped. (Prveviously, I had been on prescription meds for reflux. I didn't even need Tums the whole pregnancy I took the ACV. ) It also helped my gall bladder problem. You could start with a small amount 1/2 t. or 1 t. in an 8 oz glass of water and sip it and see how you do.

If you take the cayenne, you could take it with something like ginger. Don't get something with tons of Heat Units. (90HU would be too strong.) Again, start out small. Even just a few grains in juice. And it is better for digestion to let you mouth get used to it before it gets to the stomach. (Stomach's don't like surprises! ) Apparently, when cayenne or chili powder etc. Are heated and cooked that is when they cause trouble. Work up to 1/4 t. cayenne in juice. In Lalitha Thomas' book, Ten Essential Herbs, she tells about a man who had bleeding ulcers that were healed with cayenne. You should be able to tolerate more and more.

Slippery Elm is also wonderful for digestive trouble and so very gentle and highly nutritous. You can mix a teaspoon of it with warm water, like porridge, and a little honey if you like. It is kind of slimy, so if textures bother you it might not work well. Hope you get some relief soon!

Hi, So I'm up trying to get ready for work and My Ulcers are playing up. I have had these for years. But the last 6 months or so, they have been unbareable, so much so I just can't make it too work. My Hubby, was searching through sites to see if he could find anything to help as the meds that I have from My Dr are just not working.

So this morning he was off to buy the ACV, Cayenne Tablets and Glutamine tabs- I had my first dose this morning and another around 30 mins ago. I do wish I had emptied my stomuch of that bloating yucky feeling that we all know well, as this may have helped it kick in faster? ANYWAY, I really hope this works! It has far too much affect on my life, can barely work, I don't want to do anything, I use to be such a get up and go type of energitic person, but now, All I do is stick to my bed, most times curled up in a ball.

Gina: Someone reported excellent results from drinking raw Cabbage juice. From my understanding, the phytochemicals in Cabbage both kill ulcer causing bacteria like h pylori, and promote healing of epithelial tissues.

If no parasites or pathogens are present, the combination of DGL and Allantoin will quickly heal the intestinal tract. Glucosamine Sulfate is another good healer. The amino acid Glycine may prove as effective for healing as Glutamine (Glutamine fuels immune cells located in the intestines which results in indirect healing).

Hey Gina, I'm doing a similar protocol to yours with my boyfriend. He has lots of ulcers, so we're going on 2 months of treatment, but we see the light at the end of the tunnel. Before he could only eat like a bird- very small amounts before he got full, and now he can actually eat normally. I think what really helped was 2 weeks ago he started drinking a ton of kefir, like one store bought bottle every 2-3 days (we buy it on clearance but it would obviously be cheaper homemade), and adding a lot more digestive enzymes. We already did betaine and pepsin, so I added "super enzymes" to our mealtimes. He does the glutamine, cayenne, cabbage juice, and aloe juice as well. Hope this helps you on your journey!

Just a little FYI - when an acid (vinegar) and a base (baking soda) are combined they produce water as a byproduct and are neutral. Taking the vinegar and baking soda in this situation would not have helped with the stomach ulcer. Look to the other aspects of the "treatment" as potential "cures" for the ulcer.

I've been diagnosed with H.Pylori a while ago and refused to see the doctor after one round of unhelpful antibiotics. My stomach would sometimes bleed a little. I could detect it from my saliva and stools. But it wasn't a big deal. Last week, I was trying to finish my dissertation and was really stressed. My stomach started bleeding constantly so I figured it probably turned into an ulcer, though I don't know the exact diagnosis. I started using ACV+baking soda (which had cured my acid reflux and stomach problems previously for 8 months but had then stopped working) along with Cayenne Pepper. I mix all of them in a bit of water and take it on an empty stomach. Within a day or two my bleeding stopped and I generally feel an increased sense of well-being. Thank you EC, and thank God for natural remedies.

I was reading about you having h pylori and how you continue to get it after having antibiotics. I am 25 and all of a sudden have horrible pain, we believe is an ulcer, I am wondering what has worked for you as far as the natural remedies?

I am a new mom and nursing so I will not take any medications until I am done nursing, I am currently taking Apple Cider Vinegar and eating a strict anti-ulcer diet. The past two days have been good, however I am constantly scared to eat not knowing if the severe pain will come. Please let me know how your home remedies have been going, the only reason I am tempted to do the antibiotics and all that is because the stomach cancer bein related to h pylori makes me nervous. Thank you!

Hi I was wondering does cayenne have the same effect on an ulcer if you have the bacteria h pylori? I had cayenne pepper on a meal I ate a few days ago, after dinner I was in so much pain I was in bed wanting to cry.

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.

Garlic Cured Stomach Ulcer

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!

Do Not use baking "powder" in the place of baking "Soda, " they are two entirely different things. MS : )

Manuka Honey was the only answer to the ulcer problem I was having. All natural and clinically tested. Complete a search under 'The University of Waikato' in New Zeland. Oil of Oregano is very effective for healing cold soars in a hurry! I always recommend you research a product on a credible internet site before trying any remedy.

To the person asking if her doctor is right about apple cider vinegar causing ulcers, I am shocked at the ignorance of your doctor. To the contrary I took apple cider vinegar (organic, raw) to cure acid reflux and indigestion. Without it I don't know where I would be today. As an added benefit, my blood pressure went way down. I am a firm believer in raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar and would never stop taking it.

Be careful giving concrete advice when you don't know the full story. All ulcers are not caused my H Pylori. Here is a quote from a web-site.

"If you have an ulcer without an H. pylori infection, or one that is caused by taking aspirin or NSAIDs".

Turmeric was mentioned, and I tried this twice as per suggestion. The next morning I had a strange rash on my back (red and sore) but thought I had been bitten by a flea (I have cats who are treated and therefore new 'guests' jump off my cats because they are not palatable). The next evening I took turmeric again and the rash became much, much worse. I even thought it was shingles - never had this in my life. Then a voice in my head said - because I have been my own healer for a long time - turmeric and after googling this it was confirmed as a possibility. So beware, turmeric can cause a rash!

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?

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....

To Hef from Toronto, I was wondering how you are doing? What has worked for you? Are your ulcers gone? I hope you are better.

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.
