Peptic Ulcers affect up to 10% of us over our lifetime. Symptoms generally include burning in the upper abdomen, dull aching pain, and sometimes nausea and vomiting, especially if they are complicated by hemorrhaging or perforation of the intestinal wall. Peptic ulcers occur in the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. H. pylori is believed to cause about 50% of all peptic ulcers, and 50% of the population carry H.pylori. NSAIDS including aspirin are also common causes of ulcers.
Treatment in mainstream medicine is oriented to using two antibiotics and blocking acid production with powerful proton pump inhibitors such as Nexium, Aciphex, Prilosec,etc, but over the long haul there are problems that can lead to osteoporosis and senile dementia.There are much safer and equally effective ways to manage peptic ulcers in nutritional medicine.

Peptic Ulcers: Nutritional Support Protocol
1. Avoid smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and use of aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) unless absolutely necessary to ease GI irritation.
Avoid common allergic producing foods such as wheat, dairy, corn and soy.
Experiment with your diet to find what possibly may trigger symptoms; high fat foods, spicy foods,
mint, chocolate, coffee, black tea and acidic drinks can all contribute to symptoms.
Do not rush your meals. Thoroughly chew your food and take time to enjoy each bite.
