Yes indeed: Take an antacid regularly (not only for pain or other symptoms). Also, probably acid blocking medications are available in pharmacies, probably without prescription (cimetidine, omeprazole, and several others). A druggist can help choose the best one. Also avoid alcohol entirely and any foods that trigger pain or other symptoms. You should confirm this advice with doctor who diagnosed the ulcer.

Yes, many: There are many home treatments for stomach ulcer. Cabbage juice is among the best as research has proven it works: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1643665 For other options see http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/peptic_ulcer_disease.html and http://www.naturalnews.com/028644_stomach_ulcers_remedies.html

Depends: 1) remove the cause for the ulcer (bacteria, medication such as aspirin/motrin, etc.), your doctor can help you figure it out. 2) allow ulcer to heal more quickly by acid blocking medications.
