One should never eat tired or emotionally upset, not when the mouth is dry. One should chew food properly. One should eat only natural foods and take food in dry form as possible. Meals must be small and frequent. All foods and drink, which are either too hot or too cold, should be avoided. The patient should drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day.

Daily deep breathing exercises also help. Above all, the patient must try to rid himself of his worries and stay cheerful. Milk, cream, butter, fruits and fresh, raw and boiled vegetables, natural foods and natural vitamin supplements are the best diet for an ulcer patients.

Milk should be taken in moderate quantities. Fruits such as bananas, mangoes, melon reduce the acidity in the stomach. A low salt diet can greatly help in curing hyperacidity and ulcer. Almond milk, goat’s raw milk is also highly beneficial. Those in advanced state of disease should avoid whole grains, nuts and whole grain bread. All sour fruits should be avoided, especially citrus fruits. Greasy foods, flesh foods, tea, coffee, tobacco, alcohol should be completely eliminated in ulcers.

Vitamin A and E taken together have a protective effect against development of ulcers caused by stress, but also a curative effect on existing ulcers. Cabbage juice accelerates the healing of peptic ulcers.

Fiber slows the movement of food and acidic fluid from the stomach to the intestines, which should help those with duodenal ulcers, though not stomach ulcers. Avoiding food allergens may be helpful for people with peptic ulcers.

Zinc has a protective effect against stomach ulceration.

Glutamine helps people overcome peptic ulcers. Chamomile tea has a soothing effect on inflamed and irritated mucous membranes. Calendula has anti-inflammatory and healing activities. Garlic has antihelicobacter activity and may be useful.
