Have Crohn's and just diagnosed with peptic ulcer from endoscopy from NSAID. Been there for 3 weeks how fast does it heal? What can I do to help?

NSAID group is notoriously famous in casing gastritis and other similar peptic problems. Taking medicines for 4 weeks usually gives the stomach ulcers time to heal and be able to withstand the usual acid attack in the stomach. We need to avoid spices, alcohol and NSAID.
