Taking Charge of Your Health

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of functional
medicine and founder of In this video I’m going to share with you the three
steps to overcome stomach ulcers really fast as well as common stomach ulcer symptoms so
you 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 the
stomach. The pain you’re experiencing tends to be caused by stomach acid affecting that
ulcer or something that you’ve eaten. It’s rubbing that ulcer in the wrong way. Sort
of imagine you’ve got a burn and you’re rubbing up against it or putting something acid on
it and you’re feeling that pain. Some of the biggest symptoms and warning signs
that you have a stomach ulcer include pain anywhere from the navel up to sort of the
chest bone area here. Typically right in this midsection you’ll feel pain, sometimes burning
and cramping going on. That’s a big warning sign. You can actually experience stomach
ulcers on an empty stomach. If two hours after a meal you start having that pain and burning
sensation, that’s a warning sign you have a stomach ulcer. You can feel it in the middle
of the night in many cases as well. Listen to this. Seventy percent of stomach
ulcers are caused by a bacteria called H. Pylori bacteria. If we’re going to correct
the actual cause of stomach ulcers, it’s so critical that we increase the good bacteria
in your body and we get rid of the bad bacteria and reduce that H. Pylori that’s within your
system. Let’s jump into the three steps you can follow right now to heal a stomach ulcer
fast. 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 thing
that’ll bother is spicy foods, whether it’s cayenne pepper, anything like that, black
pepper. Those can really fire it up and cause some of the pain. Also, doing certain products that are inflammatory
in nature. Processed food products can cause more issues than others. And, sugar. Remember,
H. Pylori bacteria, that bad bacteria, can increase within the stomach which can cause
that stomach ulcer. Again, staying away from processed sugar altogether is really important
when it comes to healing stomach ulcers. Also, caffeine and alcohol can make stomach ulcers
worse. Eating nuts and seeds in large amounts. Acidic foods such as tomato products can sometimes
cause more pain with a stomach ulcer. Number one, remove those triggers. Step number two, change your diet. Here are
the top healing foods for stomach ulcers. Number one is bone broth. Bone broth actually
is at a certain pH that can soothe the pain with a stomach ulcer. Also, bone broth contains
proline and glutamine, two amino acids that can help heal the stomach lining. I recommend
8 to 12 ounces of a cup of bone broth or bone broth soup 2 to 3 times daily. Remember, bone
broth is the number one healing food for any type of stomach ulcer. The number two food is aloe vera juice. Drinking
aloe vera juice throughout the day. It has a certain pH and certain nutrients called
polysaccharides that can also help and repair that stomach ulcer. Again, bone broth number
one, aloe vera juice number two. Number three food that’s going to help heal
that stomach lining is going to be vegetables, specifically steamed vegetables or vegetables
in the Crock Pot. Carrots are fantastic. Asparagus is good. The best food of all, actually another liquid
here, is cabbage juice. That’s number three. Cabbage juice contains a type of sulfur which
helps heal the gut lining. You can see with the stomach if you have stomach ulcers doing
soups and juices are going to be the best. Again, bone broth, cooked vegetables, aloe
vera juice, cabbage juice, these are the most healing foods when it comes to healing stomach
ulcers. That’s the sort of diet you’re going to want to focus on is doing bone broth and
then drinking things like aloe vera juice throughout the day. A bone broth soup with
a 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 helps
coat 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 called
SBOs. That’s soil based organisms or soil based probiotics. Those probiotics are going
to help eliminate that H. Pylori and that bad bacteria. The third supplement which could also be done
as a tea is chamomile. You can take a chamomile supplement or chamomile tea which is very
effective. Chamomile I’d recommend about two glasses of chamomile tea a day. The fourth
thing you can do is take L-glutamine powder. L-glutamine is an amino acid that imagine
is a Band-Aid to sort of cover up and protect that ulcerated area. Last but not least, consume
bone broth protein powder or collagen protein powder. Both bone broth protein you can do
a scoop in a smoothie or collagen protein a scoop in a smoothie. They’re full of amino
acids that help heal the gut lining. Remember, if you follow these three steps
of, number one, get rid of those food triggers from caffeine to sugar to spicy foods to alcohol
and overeating or eating too much. Stay away from those things. Number two, get some of
those healing foods such as bone broth, cooked vegetables, cabbage juice, aloe vera juice.
Number five, take the supplements I just talked about. If you follow those steps, you’re going
to see your stomach ulcer symptoms are going to go away really fast. In fact, you can probably
see results and see this totally healed within 24 hours following these recommendations. By the way, if you want to learn more about

  1. Cayenne pepper, as counterproductive as it sounds, is actually really helpful. I currently have a stomach ulcer and I've been all over the place trying to figure out what I can take. Cayenne pepper actually stopped the pain all together. I drank a teaspoon mixed with cranberry juice. It tasted awful and my mouth burned, but once it stopped, I felt much better.

  2. Thank you so much Doctor Axe. My stomach pain went away instantly after taking fresh aloe vera juice. You are simply the best.

    I got Gastritis from using aspirin. Aloe Vera made me evacuate for 24 hours. I was exhausted and dehydrated. I went to my doctor and got Mylanta and Zantac. Instant relief. Better in a week.

  15. I was given some medication for stomach acid back when the ulcer wasn’t as bad. The doctor told me to avoid foods that irritate my stomach, but I didn’t listen because my mom makes me eat whatever the hell she makes. Now, a few days ago, I began getting small cramps and getting that feeling of being hungry. Tonight was my first big dose of a burning stomach cramp. It was the worst thing I’ve ever felt in my life, I thought I was dying, I was close to crying. I really hope these work, I’m being super careful now and only eating white bread and eggs for now.

  16. I had a catscan to confirm my ulcer. It looked like I had a their breast lol it was so swollen. I wonder if u can do these things while pregnant? I have a scheduled c- section & they can't give me anything other then Tylenol legally. That would suck

  21. I had a bleeding ulcer causing black stool and I came across this video. I didn't do everything mentioned, but I began drinking Aloe Vera juice and made bone broth soup with carrots and cabbage, and in just 3 days the ulcer seems healed and stool color has returned to near normal. I also cut out all acidic triggers and all sweets. (I also lost about 8lbs!)
    I have struggled with acid reflux and heartburn for years and this last week was the first time in as long as I can remember that I haven't had ANY heartburn or reflux. So thankful that you made the info available. I am continuing on the things suggested in your videos including taking probiotics daily, and looking forward to a healthier future.

  22. My doctor did not tell me ANY of this information. All he does is continue to prescribe poisoned medicine. Dr. Axe is a very caring person. Most doctors will not give information on how to heal yourself naturally.

  23. Most aloevera juice have citric acid added to it which made my symptoms worse. I started getting fresh aloevera leaf.

  24. Thank u Doc. I struggle so much with stomach ulcers but I see where I might have gone wrong as well. Will definitely be following these tips more so that they coming straight from the Doctor!!!

  29. I have used this protocol because of some unusual summit activity. I've used it for one to two days at a time and it works every time. But after a month or two it comes back. So now I'm on day one of a full week of this gut healing protocol to eliminate for good this mystery issue. I think it's an ulcer but I'm not 100% sure. Regardless the protocol works. Thanks Dr. Axe
