Does cabbage, celery, & apple, juice good for ulcer?

Does cabbage, celery, & apple, juice good for ulcer?

Duodenal ulcers are: Caused by bacteria. So if you know you have one, no diet is going to help unless you get rid these bacteria. If all you have is indigestion, then you can try different diet. But cabbage, celery and apple juice are probably not going to help your digestion. Try taking Prilosec or prevacid, alternatively zantac (ranitidine) or tagamet. These will reduce your stomach acid. ...Read more

I never drink orange juice but decided to have a small drink yesterday, it burned my stomach so bad and now it's hurts so bad. Is that a ulcer?

Orange juice: contains citric acid but it is not strong enough to "burn" unless you have gastritis (generalized inflammation) A gastric ulcer is unlikely to have been "silent" until the range juice!!!! You may be one of those rare individuals who react this way to orange (and other citric acid containing) foods! Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more

Is frozen purple grape juice, apple juice and peppermint tea ok to drink for ulcer. Ipeppermint tea seems to calm tummy but some say bad for ulcer?

Is frozen purple grape juice, apple juice and peppermint tea ok to drink for ulcer. Ipeppermint tea seems to calm tummy but some say bad for ulcer?

Probably OK: I see no problem with grape and apple juice, though i strongly recommend organic juices as both conventional grapes and apples are high in pesticides. The only reference i found re: ulcers says it should not be used in stomach ulcers because it lowers esophageal sphincter pressure, but i don't see why that would be bad for an ulcer. Many authorities claim peppermint tea is good for ulcers. ...Read more

What do I do to get rid of my ulcer i take carafate, (sucralfate) alovera (sp) & antisid a cabbage base chew tab

If : If your ulcer is caused by a bacteria called h. Pylori then you will need an extended course of multiple antibiotics to erradicate the bacteria. You will also need a medication called omeprazole, this will help decrease the acid in your stomach so further damage is not done. Your doctor will be able to do a blood test in order to check for this bacteria. In addition you may need a test done by a gastroenterologist called an endoscopy in order to assess your entire upper GI tract. Please see your doctor ras soon as possible. ...Read more

Allergy: It appears you are having an allergic reaction to the cabbage. I recommend you stop eating cabbage and see your doctor for an examination. She can prescribe a "magic mouthwash" concoction which will decrease the discomfort. She'll also examine you and make sure there isn't an infection or others problem going on. Good luck. ...Read more
