Hey guys, Dr.
Axe here, doctor of functionalmedicine and founder of draxe.
In this video I'm going to share with you the threesteps to overcome stomach ulcers really fast as well as common stomach ulcer symptoms soyou know if that's actually what you're experiencing.
I'm going to talk about the diets for ulcers,the supplements and the things that you must avoid for quick healing.
First off, stomach ulcers happen within thestomach.
The pain you're experiencing tends to be caused by stomach acid affecting thatulcer or something that you've eaten.
It's rubbing that ulcer in the wrong way.
Sortof imagine you've got a burn and you're rubbing up against it or putting something acid onit and you're feeling that pain.
Some of the biggest symptoms and warning signsthat you have a stomach ulcer include pain anywhere from the navel up to sort of thechest bone area here.
Typically right in this midsection you'll feel pain, sometimes burningand cramping going on.
That's a big warning sign.
You can actually experience stomachulcers on an empty stomach.
If two hours after a meal you start having that pain and burningsensation, that's a warning sign you have a stomach ulcer.
You can feel it in the middleof the night in many cases as well.
Listen to this.
Seventy percent of stomachulcers are caused by a bacteria called H.
If we're going to correctthe actual cause of stomach ulcers, it's so critical that we increase the good bacteriain your body and we get rid of the bad bacteria and reduce that H.
Pylori that's within yoursystem.
Let's jump into the three steps you can follow right now to heal a stomach ulcerfast.
The number one thing is remove the triggers.
Overeating is one of the biggest things that can cause issues.
If you're eating large meals,you've got to stop that.
Eat smaller meals frequently throughout the day.
The other thingthat'll bother is spicy foods, whether it's cayenne pepper, anything like that, blackpepper.
Those can really fire it up and cause some of the pain.
Also, doing certain products that are inflammatoryin nature.
Processed food products can cause more issues than others.
Pylori bacteria, that bad bacteria, can increase within the stomach which can causethat stomach ulcer.
Again, staying away from processed sugar altogether is really importantwhen it comes to healing stomach ulcers.
Also, caffeine and alcohol can make stomach ulcersworse.
Eating nuts and seeds in large amounts.
Acidic foods such as tomato products can sometimescause more pain with a stomach ulcer.
Number one, remove those triggers.
Step number two, change your diet.
Here arethe top healing foods for stomach ulcers.
Number one is bone broth.
Bone broth actuallyis at a certain pH that can soothe the pain with a stomach ulcer.
Also, bone broth containsproline and glutamine, two amino acids that can help heal the stomach lining.
I recommend8 to 12 ounces of a cup of bone broth or bone broth soup 2 to 3 times daily.
Remember, bonebroth is the number one healing food for any type of stomach ulcer.
The number two food is aloe vera juice.
Drinkingaloe vera juice throughout the day.
It has a certain pH and certain nutrients calledpolysaccharides that can also help and repair that stomach ulcer.
Again, bone broth numberone, aloe vera juice number two.
Number three food that's going to help healthat stomach lining is going to be vegetables, specifically steamed vegetables or vegetablesin the Crock Pot.
Carrots are fantastic.
Asparagus is good.
The best food of all, actually another liquidhere, is cabbage juice.
That's number three.
Cabbage juice contains a type of sulfur whichhelps heal the gut lining.
You can see with the stomach if you have stomach ulcers doingsoups and juices are going to be the best.
Again, bone broth, cooked vegetables, aloevera juice, cabbage juice, these are the most healing foods when it comes to healing stomachulcers.
That's the sort of diet you're going to want to focus on is doing bone broth andthen drinking things like aloe vera juice throughout the day.
A bone broth soup witha little bit of chicken and cabbage is ideal for healing stomach ulcers.
The next step here, take the right supplements.
The number one supplement you should be taking with a stomach ulcer is licorice root extract,typically 500 milligrams a day, DGL licorice root extract.
Licorice root actually helpscoat and heal and sooth stomach ulcer pain.
Also, number two would be soil based probiotics.
Again, not just any probiotic supplement but a probiotic supplement that has what are calledSBOs.
That's soil based organisms or soil based probiotics.
Those probiotics are goingto help eliminate that H.
Pylori and that bad bacteria.
The third supplement which could also be doneas a tea is chamomile.
You can take a chamomile supplement or chamomile tea which is veryeffective.
Chamomile I'd recommend about two glasses of chamomile tea a day.
The fourththing you can do is take L-glutamine powder.
L-glutamine is an amino acid that imagineis a Band-Aid to sort of cover up and protect that ulcerated area.
Last but not least, consumebone broth protein powder or collagen protein powder.
Both bone broth protein you can doa scoop in a smoothie or collagen protein a scoop in a smoothie.
They're full of aminoacids that help heal the gut lining.
Remember, if you follow these three stepsof, number one, get rid of those food triggers from caffeine to sugar to spicy foods to alcoholand overeating or eating too much.
Stay away from those things.
Number two, get some ofthose healing foods such as bone broth, cooked vegetables, cabbage juice, aloe vera juice.
Number five, take the supplements I just talked about.
