How to help heal a "stomach ulcer" naturally
So today, let's talk about a few more key elements to relieve the pain and suffering from a stomach or small intestinal ulcer.
Today we talk about Manuka honey . . .
Okay . . . so I'm not talking about local or store bought honey . . . I'm talking about the natural honey from the Manuka flower in New Zealand.
Now . . . Manuka honey has anti-bacterial properties that are so potent, they have the ability to heal a wound, just like an ulcer. So whether it's an ulcer in the stomach or an ulcer on the skin . . . Manuka honey can help to heal it fast.
Manuka honey also has an antimicrobial effect that works against H. pylori.
Therefore . . . you get a double whammy with this remedy . . . because it not only helps to eradicate the H. pylori infection causing the ulcer . . . it also has the ability to heal the ulcer wound due to NSAIDs and/or H. pylori.
Okay . . . so another good remedy is "garlic"
Garlic has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which make it helpful in fighting infections. And an "ulcer" becomes infected. So adding garlic to the diet can help speed up the healing process of an ulcer.
And recent studies say that eating 2 cloves of raw garlic per day for three days helps reduce the bacterial activity in the stomach lining of people suffering from H. pylori, stomach and small intestinal ulcers.
But . . . remember what I've told you in previous Health tips . . . we must first activate the garlic or this remedy will lose its effectiveness.
And finally . . . "cranberries"
We spoke of this tart little treat the other day for a UTI
