Stomach Ulcers: Natural Remedies That Work

What Is A Stomach Ulcer?

  • Peptic ulcers is a distinct breach in the mucosal lining of the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first part of the small intestine (duodenal ulcer) and is the result of corrosive effects of acid and pepsin in the stomach.

  • There are open sores or erosions in the mucosal lining of either the duodenum (duodenal ulcers) or the stomach (gastric ulcers). A stomach (peptic) ulcer occurs when there are ulcerations through the epithelial layer of the stomach.

  • This occurs after there is a disrupted balance between acid formation, production of mucus and bicarbonate production in the stomach.  Peptic ulcers are open sores or erosions in the mucosal lining of either the duodenum (duodenal ulcers) or the stomach (gastric ulcers). 

  • This happens due to irritants which may be allergic, chemical or mechanical or drugs, excessive secretion of digestive juice or infection. 

  • Gastric ulcer peaks in the age group of 50-60.

  • The male, female ratio is almost equal. Duodenal ulcer peaks in the age group of 20-50 years. But the male, female ratio is 2:1.

  • Occurrence of peptic ulcer is more common in people who have 'O' blood group.

Types of Stomach Ulcers

  • Gastric ulcer is identified if the stomach is ulcerated.
  • Duodenal ulcer is identified if the duodenum is involved.

Causes of Stomach Ulcers

  • Helicobacter pylori infections account for 90% of duodenal ulcers and 70% of gastric ulcers. It disrupts the mucosal protective barrier of the stomach.
  • Long term use of NSAID's (Non steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen), stomach tumors, Crohn's disease, renal failure, COPD, trauma, stress and acute illness.

  • Heredity is particularly connected with duodenal ulcers.
  • Increased hydrochloric acid secretion causes changes in the wall of duodenum and sets the the stage for invasion by H. Pylori.
  • Bad Habits - Smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and irregular dietary habits increase the risk of an ulcer.
  • Foods - Spicy and chilly.
  • Infectious diseases which cause increased urea and bacteria level in blood.
  • Long term use of Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) such as aspirin and ibuprofen which damage the gastric mucosal barrier.
  • Mechanical - from a hard food substance or any investigative procedures.
  • Mental and physical stress and strain.
  • Neurological issues

  • Mechanical - Any hard food substance or any investigative procedures.

Diagnosis of Peptic Ulcers and Testing

  • Barium swallow or upper GI and small bowel series may be reveal the presence of the ulcer. This is the initial test performed on a patient whose symptoms are not severe.
  • Biopsy can be done through endoscope - to rule out serious disease like cancer and for presence of H. pylori.
  • Blood test for antibodies for H. pylori.
  • Breath Test - Carbon 13 urea breath test results reflect activity of H. pylori.
  • Double contrast barium meal examination.
  • Endoscopy
  • Laboratory analysis may detect occult blood in stools.
