View Full Version : gastric ulcers and raw food?
05-13-2005, 09:58 PM
I've been searching the internet for information about if there's any raw food that are especially good to eat to heal and prevent gastric ulcers. The only thing I've found this far is cabbage juice, but what kind of cabbage? Anything else I could eat instead? I was in hospital last year because of a gastric ulcer and I'm now starting to have the same kind of pains so I'm afraid that it's back :( I really don't want to stuff myself full with all the meds so if there is a raw way I'd rather try that first.
Thanks in advance.

Tanja_swe, I am not fully in the know, but I make homemade sauerkraut. It is very easy to make, and it is full of cabbage juice.
All I do is shred a head of cabbage, sprinkle about 1 tsp of salt over it and massage (you want to bruise the cabbage) the salt into the cabbage. Then I place the cabbage into a big glass jar, place a weight ( I use a glass jar filled with water - but could be a big clean rock) on top of cabbage. Cover and set on my kitchen counter. Depending on how warm it is, it could take 2-5 days to ferment. Every day, I take the jar of water out, and stir, then taste. Once it tastes fermented like sauerkraut, I then pack in clean jars and refrigerate.

Thanks Tracy, I'm going to the market today and I know there is a guy who sells sauerkraut right out of the barrel and it's raw. I've never tried it before but might give it a go today :)

I think it was Catherinethegreat who treated her ulcer with cabbage juice -- just juiced the cabbage, I think. That's what she was advised to do at the time. You can check her journal for the details.

the "bug" that causes gastric ulsers is killed by the cayenne pepper.
So, when my son and my ex-hubby had ulsers, they took cayenne in capsules, and also on everything they could eat it on, they didn't have to have surgery, or take any medication.
Prior to my telling them about this, they were on all kinds of medications, and having all kinds of side effects.
So, this does work.

Thank you so much! :) I will try your suggestions. Hopefully it will work.

I'm going to try the cayenne pepper. The bug is called h.pylori bacter. Also what worked well for me (until I ran out of it) is ByeLori. I just got some more, but my stomach is still hurting (i guess from the break) It uses mastic gum from a type of evergreen tree. It is $23 with no shipping charges on iherb.com. They deliver fast too!
