Try Banana & Cabbage, coconut oil

Stomach ulcers are small holes or sores in the gastrointestinal tract which affect millions of Americans every year. The most common major symptom of an ulcer is a burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach area that lasts from half an hour up to three hours. Usually, the pain occurs in the upper abdomen, but may sometimes occur below the breastbone. Fortunately, there are several natural remedies which can heal and soothe stomach ulcers without the risk of mainstream drugs.

Appetite and weight loss are also common symptoms of ulcers. Other symptoms which may occur include recurrent vomiting, black stool, blood in the stool and anemia. Often ulcer pain is misinterpreted as heartburn, indigestion or hunger. A person with duodenal ulcers may experience weight gain due to eating more to ease discomfort.

Also known as peptic ulcers, stomach ulcers are caused by the destruction of the gastric or intestinal mucosal lining of the stomach by hydrochloric acid, an acid normally present in the digestive juices of the stomach. Infection from the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is thought to play an important role in causing both gastric and duodenal ulcers. H. pylori may be transmitted from one person to another through contaminated food and water.

Chronic use of anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin, is another major cause of ulcer. Cigarette smoking is also an important cause of ulcer formation and can contribute to ulcer treatment failure.

Following are some of the best natural remedies for healing and soothing stomach ulcers:

* One of the very best home remedies for ulcers is eating raw cabbage. Juicing the raw cabbage will make it easier to take and mixing it with carrots in the juicer will make it better tasting. Drink half a cup before each meal and at bed time and make sure that it is fresh. Your ulcer may be gone in only a few weeks.

* Eat at least three bananas a day. These fruits contain an antibacterial substance that inhibits the growth of ulcer-causing H. pylori. Studies show that animals fed bananas have a thicker stomach wall and greater mucus production in the stomach, which helps build a barrier between digestive acids and the lining of the stomach. Eating plantains is also helpful.

* Cayenne pepper is wonderful for healing ulcers as well as dulling the pain. It is a bit strong and may take some getting used to at the outset. Start with one-eighth teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of water twice a day and work up to a quarter-teaspoon. You can also take cayenne capsules that you can get at the health food store. Take three a day immediately after meals.

* The bark of slippery elm soothes the mucous membranes that line the stomach and duodenum. It is often taken in powdered form. Some herbalists recommend taking a teaspoon of powdered slippery elm bark added to one cup of warm water three times a day.

* Colloidal silver helps kill the H. pylori bacteria and helps heal injured stomach tissues.

* Raw honey soothes and reduces inflammation of the lining of the stomach and is good for healing as well.

* Garlic's antibacterial properties include fighting H. pylori. Take two small crushed cloves a day.

* Plums and other red and purple colored foods such as berries inhibit the growth of H. pylori.

* Coconut oil kills the bacteria that cause ulcers and gas, but it's mostly a long-term remedy.


A few other good ulcer remedies are: raw goats' milk, barley water, aloe juice, propolis capsules, licorice root or marshmallow root.

Mr S wrote:I've already told you in the two previous posts that if you don't live in America over 30 days then you don't need insurance in the states. If you choose not to file taxes in 2015 then don't worry about it cause there is no proof you had or didn't have it since you aren't visiting any doctor's or hospitals for anything and hopefully by next year you will not be in the USA anymore.

Why are you having a hissy fit over simple advice? I'm not bending your arm to force you to do anything. If you don't want to file taxes I don't care I'm just saying that it may cause you issues in the future if you have to declare assets because you inherited them from your parents after they are deceased.

It's like your blaming me for putting additional thoughts into your head after you've already asked for advice. These thoughts can be ignored or acted upon based on your choices in life not mine.
Because you are painting the worst possible scenario that is based on paranoia and you were laughing about it too. I was talking about filing taxes in 2014. Not 2015. I don't understand what doctors and hospitals have to do with filing taxes.

If the IRS asks me about it, I'll just explain that Murphy's Law got in my way. lol

I will check the law again. But from what I understand, you don't have to file taxes if you didn't make at least $24,000.

Do you file taxes with the IRS?

You still didn't explain to me what other expats are doing about Obamacare.

Update:

The other day, my stools were dark green and when I mashed them with a toilet brush, there was no sign of blood or redness in them.

My stools were a normal brown color today. So I don't think I had an ulcer after all. Whew.

I have black junk all time, it's mainly due to consuming a lot of natural meals and healthier multigrains that actually have nutritional value in them. I also consume a lot of wheat grass which does that too. Unless you're in serious discomfort or like that I would not fear about it.
