Stomach ulcer is also known as peptic ulcer. It is a very painful health condition that is caused when there is a wound on the lining of the stomach.
The major causes of this ailment is a bacteria known as H.pylori. It can also happen to people who starve themselves or eat very late.
The cure for stomach ulcer is antibiotics targeted at killing the H.pylori bacteria. Most times, these antibiotics do not cure the ulcer which leaves people in severe stomach pains and other uncomfortable symptoms.
This has led people to look for other ways to help cure their ulcer as most medicines do not do much.
In this article, we will discuss some of the natural alternative remedies that are very effective in the treatment of stomach ulcer.
1. Cabbage. Cabbage is very effective in the treatment of stomach ulcer. It contains nutrients that protect the stomach lining while drying up the ulcer.
It also contains natural antibiotics that help to destroy the H.pylori bacteria.
You can prepare it by washing the cabbage thoroughly, divide it into two, cut out the tail/core and cut into small sizes, put them into a blender, add water to cover them, blend until very smooth, use a sieve to separate the juice from the chaff.
Drink one full glass twice daily (morning and night), at least 1 hour before eating. Do this for at least two weeks. Also, ensure that you drink the fresh juice each time, do not store in the refrigerator.
2. Unripe plantain. This is another effective way to help treat stomach ulcer. You can prepare it by getting between 5 to 10 pieces of unripe plantain, peel them, cut them into tiny pieces, soak them in a 5 litres can or container, pour water to cover them.
Allow them to ferment for 48 hours, then start drinking one cup of the fermented mixture at least 1 hour before your breakfast and dinner.
Do this until the symptoms have disappeared, then you can discontinue it immediately.
3. Garlic. Garlic contains natural antibiotics that help to destroy the H.pylori bacteria. You can do this by peeling and chopping up 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, leave them for at least 15 minutes so that they can release the potent antibiotics in them.
Then add them to water and drink. You can add honey to sweeten it. Do not use more than 2 cloves of garlic.
