I have an ulcer (non h.pylori) that developed after I had taken NSAIDS. I tried everything to get rid of it. Some things I tried did not work at all, while others did work, but interfered with the effectiveness of my other supplements. I was at the end of my rope, and then an extremely happy accident occurred! I wanted to find a healthy snack as I had changed my diet some time ago. So, I thought I would try sunflower seeds. I would eat them every night (about 2 handfuls hulled) on an empty stomach before bed time. The next morning I noticed that my ulcer did not hurt as much. So, I did some research on the Internet, and found the answer. It turns out that sunflower seeds have amino acids, minerals, and other components that heal damaged tissue anywhere in the body! As each day went by, my ulcer began to get better and better. It's amazing how I searched and searched, but found a cure purely by accident. Now, that's not to say that it won't act up again if I eat a bowel of chili or something. But, if I stick to a bland diet for a few weeks and eat the seeds every night, then I'm good as new!
