Stomach ulcer: Stomach ulcers may heal if they are not continuing to be irritated by food, alcohol, or acid from reflux. However, some ulcers can be caused by a bacterial infection H pylori and need a regimen of meds including an antibiotic for cure. In the meantime you can take a proton pump inhibitor like Prilosec and antacids. Avoid irritating food and drink. Sleep with your head elevated at 45 degrees.
