Erradicate H.Pylori: If you have peptic ulcer disease, which can involve stomach ulcers and/or duodenal ulcers of the small intestine, the answer is yes! These ulcers can be completely healed... Also, there's no genetic link involved with the risk for developing ulcers, and diet has no effect on the healing of an ulcer either. Ulcer is likely to come back if you have an H. pylori infection that is not successfully Rxd
