Alternative Remedies to Heal and Prevent Ulcers

Both traditional and alternative doctors believe the best way to heal ulcers is with antibiotics. Antibiotics destroy the bacteria that cause ulcers. Ulcers are very painful and are caused by painful sores alongside the lining of the stomach or small intestine. Along with the pain, ulcers cause bloating, belching, weight loss, and nausea. Ulcers can bleed or cause a hole in the stomach or intestine. So, if taking antibiotics only heals ulcers what good are alternative remedies? Well, taking alternative remedies can be used after you have taken the antibiotics to help the stomach or intestine heal and prevent the ulcers from coming back, which antibiotics don’t do.

To help heal ulcers, take 300 mgs of gamma oryzanol everyday. Gamma Oryzanol will help speed up the healing process of ulcers but also prevent them from returning. An alternative remedy that is better than medication is Deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL. DGL has proven to be more effective than over the counter medications healing ulcers. You can take 1,000-1,500 mgs a day of DGL or 30 drops of the DGL tincture three times a day on an empty stomach for up to two months.

Although it sounds disgusting, there is healing in cabbage juice. The active ingredient in cabbage juice called Glutamine can heal ulcers. Glutamine helps repairs and replenishes the lining of the stomach and intestines. But drinking it is a different story. If you can stand the unpleasant taste, go for it. However, there is a better way to get take the ingredient without the disgusting taste, glutamine is available in supplements. Take 8,000 mgs of glutamine a day for a month to help heal and prevent ulcers.

To prevent ulcers from returning, increase your intake of fish and corn oil. If you cook with these oils and use it on foods like a salad dressing, you will get enough of the oils. If you don’t like fish, you can take fish oil supplements. Increasing your daily intake of fiber helps to prevent ulcers from coming back. Make sure you eat plenty of fruits, bran, whole grain breads and cereals, and vegetables to get enough fiber in your diet. You can also take fiber supplements but just make sure you drink plenty of water to help the fiber do the job.

Antibiotics cause side effects that not only kill the bad bacteria but also kill good bacteria too. This is why antibiotics fail to prevent ulcers and may even cause one to become more susceptible in getting ulcers. Good bacteria maintains the digestive system, when it is destroyed that can cause bad bacteria to grow and multiply causing ulcers, indigestion, constipation, bloating, diarrhea, gas, and a number of other digestive problems. To heal and prevent this condition called dysbiosis, which is caused by antibiotics, take �¼ to �½ teaspoon of refrigerated probiotics a day.
