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.

Can scotchbonnet pepper be used instead of cayenne pepper?

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.

Hello Lisa ,
Glad you are feeling well. I have mild irriatation in my stomach and have had some bleeding.. Just wondering apart from taking the cayenne tea what was your diet during the healing period, if you can share that will be great - Pratt

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
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?

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.

Hi Just want to report I have been suffering from the effects of terrible acid reflux and an ulcer for years now until I discovered this site. I would be up all night vomiting 20 or 30 times and ended up in the ER several times a year. I have been to numerous doctors and have taken all kinds of drugs with nothing working. Who would think something as simple as ACV would cure me! I also test my PH every day as per Ted's advice. I have been using ACV. baking soda, and collidal minerals mixed with apple juice and filtered water 5 days a week. I feel so good! Thank You So Much Marguerite

This is an update five months later by Carmel.

Gave up on the cabbage juice as did not seem to be helping, time consuming and expensive.

Took Nexium for ten weeks. Had to take painkillers for headaches and occasional stomach ache which were side effects. When you stop taking the ppis you get a bad stomach and many doctors say this means you must continue to take them. But then you would take them forever! Stick with it and the pain goes after a few days.

Whatever I eat makes no difference.

Twenty one days later have a bit of pain there that is manageable and comes and goes. Presumably I still have an ulcer but maybe a half healed one.

Live in England and waiting to see consultant for proper diagnosis in January.

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.
