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. I have ulcers/gastritis and histamine intolerance. Bone broth makes
    Me feel worse, spikes my blood pressure, possibly from the histamine intolerance.

  2. Most of my relatives says I have ulcer but I don't experience stomach pain, but I do experience chest pain and I constantly burp after I ate.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

  6. 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!!!

  8. Hi Doctor, Can you please make a video on Helico bacter Pylori and milk and water Kefir benefits to it ( because many patients with this infection Is inherent to dairy products) and what are the causes for this infection , is it self produced by the body or from any contamination. Thank you.

  11. 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

  17. New subscriber. Mobile, Alabama. I am having more frequent stomach pain and feel that I might have an early stage stomach ulcer. I I don't eat regularly and often have an empty stomach for several days at a time. I have begun to remove the spicy foods I love from my diet and am as caffeine-free as possible. Thank you for your helpful info in this video. Tomorrow I will plan my diet to be more healthy, including the foods and supplements you outlined If my symptoms continue for the next two weeks, I will ask my physician to schedule an upper GI series. Thanks.

  18. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผAH-๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผMAZ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผING! Thank you so so much for this VIDEO! Omg my chest has been hurting so bad from my ulcer. Iโ€™ve been taking collagen for 4 months now and I had NO IDEA that it was good for ulcers! I KNEW itโ€™s been helping! Please keep making videos like this because itโ€™s so annoying to see videos of stuffy doctors ๐Ÿฅผ in lab coats say โ€œhereโ€™s your symptoms and hereโ€™s everything I know about them, but Iโ€™m not gonna tell you how to heal them. Youโ€™re gonna actually have to see a doctor.โ€๐Ÿ˜‘ SO๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผTHANK๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผYOU๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ!

  19. This was the most helpful advice I've had in four months. Doctors have just been messing me around and taking my money. The amount of pills ive had to take has probably done more damage to my system than anything else when all I wanted was natural wholesome solutions. Thank you!

  20. Iโ€™ve been suffering from an ulcer for a year & the doctors gave me tablets that made me have other side effects so I started using cabbage juice & it really worked fast

  21. Cabbage juice really helped me , boil it for 30 mins then either blend it or strain it then after itโ€™s cooled down bottle it & after 3 days it turns in to good bacteria & drink 4 glasses a day mixed with aloe Vera or any liquid you like , make more before your batch runs out so it has 3 days to react

  22. Thanks dr for sharing tips for gastritis diets and educating people , I have been struggling with gastritis long time and lately its getting worse and I'm eaged to change my diets. My dr has prescribed for me esomeprazole 40mg x Bd. Thank you !๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  23. I want this thing to hurry up and heal so I can eat spicy foods again. I eat spicy foods almost daily. This thing started when I dived into a sea of super spicy buffalo wings.

  24. Question. I wake up and my.stomache is In brutal pain from acid reflux everyday. It goes away either after I vomit ( Not bloody or grainy) or eat a little bit. Anybody have answers?

  25. Just got diagnose with h pylori got antibiotics and make 's me feel like crap got all the side effects ,thank you doctor

  26. Praying this works. My stomach ulcer is near where the food carryโ€™s on from the stomach… so when itโ€™s inflamed, no food and barely water can get thru.. I end up bloating up scarily.

  27. Wondering if these natural remedies can be used while on a prescription drug protocol? I'm giving the GI Dr. 3 months. I have gastritis, no ulcer (yet…), but am not seeing real relief after almost 8 weeks on a PPI and Carafate.

  28. Was giving omeprazole for my stomach…. Long story short….I took it one time and almost immediately it gave me anxiety and groin pain therefore my life has been a living hell for the past 3 months or so

  29. 24 hours fasting like Muslims fast, can help a lot, I had a very bad ulcer, I have recovered, it can also clean liver

  30. I believe this dude knows, what he's talking about..the spicy stuff is a no-no.. that's how I found out. The cabbage helps.

  31. Does anyone here experience dull pain and burning in their middle upper abdomen that shoots in the back? Also, burping a lot when the discomfort triggers and feeling nauseous. The doctor in the video didn't mention about a shooting pain in the back as one of the symptoms of ulcer. Please tell me I'm not alone. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Been experiencing this for 2 months now.

  32. Hi. My mom has had a really bad stomach ulcer for the last 20 years. Sheโ€™s been on Previcid for two decades. She is 52 years old and has bone density of someone in late 60โ€™s due to the side effects. She eats healthy. She had never had alcohol. She throws up a lot. She tells me that itโ€™s not fixable. Can she ever be healed after such a long time?
