Not really: Duodenal ulcers do not heal on their own as these are caused by h pylori infection and need antibiotics and acid suppression therapy to heal.In rare cases these may heal on its own with proper diet and acid suppression, that was the case in past before we knew that these ulcers are caused by bacteria.
