Stomach and intestinal ulcers (called peptic ulcers) occur when the protective mucus lining breaks down, sometimes caused by infection.
Some medications increase acid formation that break down the mucus lining. Stress and food allergies are also factors.
To help your body heal, try reducing acids (mainly acidic foods) that errode the stomach and intestinal lining and switch to foods that aid in protecting and soothing the stomach lining.
Herbs and a diet with a high percentage of raw vegetables have proven very helpful in these conditions.
Fruits and vegetables to juice:
Apples, Apricots, Bananas, Blueberries, Cantaloupe,Cherries, Red Grapes, Mangoes, Papaya, Pears, Avocado, *Cabbage, Carrots, Cucumber, Broccoli, Leafy Greens, Onions, Watercress
Calendula, Cinnamon, Cloves, Dandelion, Echinacea, Garlic, Chamomile, Ginger, Green Tea, Licorice, Marshmallow Root, Meadowsweet, Parsley, Slippery Elm Bark Powder, Tumeric
**Drinking Aloe everyday should help tremendously with any ulcer condition. Drink a tablespoon to a few ounces. Look for organic versions of the inner leaf. This also is a great heartburn remedy, or any intestine/esophagus condition.
