In Nigeria, around 100,000 instances of stomach ulcers are identified each year.
An open sore on the inner lining of the esophagus, stomach, or small intestine is known as a stomach ulcer or peptic ulcer. It develops when stomach acid damages the lining of the digestive tract. Gastric ulcers (which originate in the stomach) and duodenal ulcers (which occur in the small intestine) are the two forms of peptic ulcers (which occur in the first part of the small intestine).
Ulcer symptoms include having difficulty eating or drinking, stomach bloating, burning, or a dull ache that prevents you from sleeping, discomfort at night or in the intervals between meals, nausea, back pain, and weight loss.
Here are some natural ulcer remedies:
First is cabbage. Cabbage is high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps prevent infection-related stomach ulcers. It has incredible ulcer-healing properties and also helps in ulcer healing. You can use the cabbage to make either coleslaw or cabbage juice. According to studies, drinking four cups of cabbage juice every day for a week can heal ulcers.
The next one is Garlic. Garlic is a safe and efficient ulcer treatment. It possesses antibacterial characteristics that aid in the treatment of infections. Garlic has been shown in studies to help prevent ulcers and speed up the healing process. To prevent ulcers, eat two raw garlic cloves every day. If you don’t like garlic raw, you can add honey to it.
Again, Plantain is used in treating ulcers. Leucocyanidin, found in unripe plantains, increases the amount of mucus in the stomach. Plantain can also help with ulcer symptoms.
Here’s how to treat stomach ulcers with unripe plantains:
✅7-8 green plantains, unripe
Plantains should be peeled, sliced, and pounded.
✅Fill a plastic container with one gallon of water and the pounded plantains.
✅Allow three days for fermentation.
✅For one week, drink one cup twice a day.
Then the honey is very essential in treating ulcers because honey includes polyphenols and other antioxidants that aid in the prevention of ulcers and the speeding up of the healing process.
Lastly, are vegetables and fruits. Ulcers can be treated with fruits and vegetables. Ulcers respond well to foods that contain antioxidant polyphenols. Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are examples of these foods.
