Stomach ulcers are erosions in the lining of the stomach, resulting due to irritation. The condition is characterized by a wide variety of symptoms, such as nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting and abdominal pain. It is often caused by H. pylori, a type of bacteria. Numerous individuals suffer due to this condition. Bacterial stomach ulcer is generally cured with medicines, such as antibiotics. However, these often give rise to various harmful side effects. Naturopaths use all-natural ways to treat stomach ulcers, and the methods generally include the following:

Licorice root: Adding this Root to the daily diet can work wonders in ulcer treatment. This root works as an anti-inflammatory agent and can fight against the H. pylori bacteria which give rise to ulcer. It can support the lining of the stomach and lower the amount of stomach acid. Naturopaths refer patients to drink tea made of this root or chew DGL or deglycyrrhizinated licorice before going to bed or while eating.

It has been found that people with higher Vitamin C levels in their bloodstream are less vulnerable to H. pylori bacterial infections. If you are suffering from ulcers, naturopaths are likely to recommend you to add enough Vitamin C-rich foods into your daily diet, which include red bell peppers, strawberries and oranges.
