Cranberry juice: Cranberry juice is safe in context of peptic ulcer. It is not a blood thinner. Is a very good beverage. Stay on your anti ulcer therapies, eat small amounts, maintain nutrition, avoid smoking and alcohol, avoid aspirin and NSAIDS.

No it does: not do that. If you have a severe bleeding ulcer, it needs immediate attention.
