STOMACH ULCER SYMPTOMS AND THEIR HOME REMEDIES
Ulcer symptoms are painful and uncomfortable symptoms. Furthermore, stomach ulcer are painful sores that develop in the lining of your digestive system. They usually form in the stomach but can also sometimes develop in the small intestine or the esophagus.
Ulcers can cause a range of symptoms, some that are more mild and go away quickly, but others that linger and cause a good deal of pain. Ulcer symptoms are usually noticeable and painful, especially when they become severe, such as the case with a high percentage of duodenal ulcers.
Here are some common symptoms you should take seriously.
- abdominal pains and burning sensations, including bloating (especially after eating and between the belly and breastbone)
- bleeding when vomiting or going to the bathroom
- nausea and vomiting
- darker stools
- loss of appetite and changes in body weight
- trouble sleeping due to pain
- other digestive complaints like heartburn, acid reflux, feeling gassy
- the risk for perforation of the organ lining for example, a life threatening condition requiring emergency surgery to repair small openings in the lining of the GI tract.
- dehydration, weakness and fatigue (if food intake is changed in response to pain when eating)
- diarrhea can occur as a symptom even before other stomach ulcer symptoms start
Home Remedies for Ulcers
Probiotics are the living bacteria and yeast that provide healthy and important microorganisms to your digestive tract. They are present in many common foods, particularly fermented foods. These include:
You can also take probiotics in supplement form.
Studies have shown that probiotics may be helpful in wiping out and increasing the recovery rate for people with ulcers when added to the traditional regimen of antibiotics.
Honey is far from simply sweet.
Depending on the plant it’s derived from, honey can contain up to 200 elements, including polyphenols and other antioxidants. Honey is a powerful antibacterial.
As long as you have normal blood sugar levels, you can enjoy honey as you would any sweetener, with the bonus of perhaps soothing your ulcers.
Garlic extract has been shown to inhibit growth in lab, animal, and human trials.
If you don’t like the taste (and lingering aftertaste) of garlic, you can take garlic extract in supplement form.
Garlic acts as a blood thinner, so ask your doctor before taking it if you use warfarin (Coumadin), other prescription blood thinners, or aspirin.
It has been shown in some studies to help decrease urinary tract infections by preventing bacteria from settling on the walls of the bladder. Cranberry and it’s extract also may help fight.
You can drink cranberry juice, eat cranberries, or take cranberry supplements.
No specific amount of consumption is associated with relief. Too much cranberry in any form may cause stomach and intestinal discomfort due to its high sugar content, so start with small amounts and increase gradually.
Many commercial cranberry juices are heavily sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup, which can also add empty calories. Avoid those juices by buying juice sweetened only by other juices.
Mastic is the sap of a tree grown in the Mediterranean.
Studies of the effectiveness of mastic on H. pylori infection are mixed, but at least one small study shows that chewing mastic gum may help fight H. pylori, getting rid of the bacteria in about 3 out of 10 people who used it.
However, when compared to the traditional combination of antibiotics and acid-blocking medications, the gum was significantly less effective than the medications. The traditional treatment got rid of the bacteria in more than 75 percent of the people studied.
You can chew the gum or swallow mastic in supplement form.
6. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
A diet centered on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is not only good for your overall health. According to the Mayo Clinic, a vitamin-rich diet can help your body heal your ulcer.
Foods containing the antioxidant polyphenols may protect you from ulcers and help ulcers heal. Polyphenol-rich foods and seasonings include:
- dried rosemary
- Mexican oregano
- dark chocolate
- blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, elderberries, and blackberries
- black olives
7. Green tea
Green tea contains a polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallate. Furthermore, this compound exhibits anti-ulcer activities and helps in accelerating the healing of the stomach ulcers. Add a teaspoon of green tea to a cup of steaming hot water. Steep for 5 minutes and strain, add some honey to it, drink it while it is warm.
