Stomach Ulcers Treatment

Stomach ulcers treatment - relieve abdominal pain, nausea and indigestion caused by gastric ulcer with anti-inflammatory, calming and cicatrizing herbs.

When I was 5 years old, my father had to undergo surgery for a stomach ulcer. I remember he had terrible pain. It remained in my mind since then what was allowed and what not in stomach ulcers treatment.

The obvious causes that led to my father ulcer were skipping meals and sleep time, smoking, family history and excessive work.

Most cases of stomach ulcers or gastric ulcers are caused by Helicobacter pylori, a spiral-shaped bacterium that lives in the acidic environment of the stomach. The treatment for bacterial infections consists in antibiotics. Whatever the solution proposed by the doctor, hygieno-dietary regimen is required.

To aid the recovery, phytotherapy recommends herbs that reduce the amount of acid in your stomach and herbs that have anti-inflammatory, calming and cicatrizing effect on the stomach lining.

One of these herbs is Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla).

As a child, I remember gathering Chamomile with my friends in the Spring or Summer was both a tradition and a joy. Our family drank Chamomile tea in industrial quantities :)

The volatile oil in Chamomile flowers contain two substances - "azulene" and "apigenin" which have antispasmodic, anesthetic, disinfectant and anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks to these qualities, Chamomile tea calms stomach muscle spasms caused by gastritis and colitis accompanied by colic.

I also remember we seemed to have an endless supply of Marigold (Calendula officinalis) flowers. It is probably the most used herb for stomach ulcers treatment.

Marigold flowers contain essential oils, resins and bitter substances which have cicatrizing and soothing effects on the stomach.

To treat gastric and duodenal ulcers you can make a tea from freshly harvested flowers, or a juice from fresh plants soaked in milk then squeezed. Prepare Marigold tea from 2 teaspoons of flowers in 1 cup of boiling water. Drink 1-2 cups daily.

Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) flowers tea relieves heartburn sensations. Put 2 teaspoons of flowers in 1 cup of boiling water. Let it steep for 5 minutes, then strain. Drink 1 cup of tea before the main meals.

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) has haemostatic, astringent and soothing effects. Prepare a macerate from 40 g / 1.5 oz grated Comfrey root in 4 cups boiling water. After cooling drink 1 teaspoon, 3 times daily before meals.

Smallflower Malva (Malva vulgaris) flowers are used to treat peptic ulcers because they soothe the irritations. Its high content in mucilages covers the mucous membranes with a thin layer that protects them from irritation caused by disease.

My mother often prepared St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) tea because my father got irritated frequently and the stress was causing him stomach pain. St. John's Wort always calmed him and his stomach nerves.

Elecampane (Inula helenium) heals not only stomach ulcer, but also gastritis and other stomach diseases.

Finely grate 1 tablespoon of Elecampane root and let it soak in 0.5 l / 17 oz vodka for 7 days in a dark place. Drink 1 tablespoon 20-30 minutes before meals. Don't drink water after taking this medicine.

Follow this stomach ulcers treatment until 1 l / 34 oz macerate has been consumed. The treatment should not be interrupted even if you are feeling well, otherwise there is a risk that the disease will reappear after 12-15 months.

New! Bad news for those who can't stomach broccoli: New research suggests that broccoli is especially good for the stomach. ~ Rick Weiss

Eat broccoli sprouts daily. First, because they cure the cause and secondly, they prevent other future complications.
