what is a Stomach Ulcer?
There are many definitions out there with medical folk competing
to see who can come up with the longest, most technical version.
For example (and I quote from simplest to worst!);
- "A raw or inflamed area of the stomach lining."
- "A Peptic ulcer is an ulcer of one of the areas of the
gastrointestinal tract that is usually acidic."
- "A break in the stomach lining that allows acid and digestive
juices to damage the tissues beneath the lining. It can
cause vomiting, pain and bleeding."
- "A necrotic lesion characterized by a crater-like erosion
of the stomach wall (gastric ulcer) or the duodenum (duodenal
ulcer) often associated with painful symptoms."
Well, at least you get the idea. The simplest definition
we can offer is this;
stomach ulcer is a small hole or erosion
in the lining of the esophagus, stomach or duodenum.
It is not much more that that! It sounds simple, but it
is a condition that needs to be taken care of.
The most common type of ulcer found in patients in Western
countries is the duodenal ulcer which is located in the small
intestine, which is connected to the bottom part of the stomach.
Adults older than 40 years of age are most susceptible to
gastric ulcers while nearly 1 in 10 of all adults in Western
countries are affected by peptic ulcers. This figure is even
higher in Third World countries.
Younger people are not immune - they are simply less likely
to be affected. Apparently the percentage chance of you getting
an ulcer is directly related to your age - so as a rule of
thumb we can assume a 1 year old has a 1% chance, while an
80 year old has an 80% chance.
Are ulcers dangerous?
Most ulcers are not dangerous, but when left too long they
can cause internal bleeding. Of course massive bleeding can

Can Ulcers be cured?
Yes, most ulcers can be cured. The treatment
of ulcers will differ according to the type
of ulcer you may have. If you are infected with H. pylori
then we recommend you try a natural remedy.

Can Ulcers be avoided?
Technically the answer is yes. The real answer is to be proactive
here and to recognize and act on some of the main causes of
ulcers, before your ulcers start acting on you.
Here some tips on avoiding ulcers;
- See your doctor BEFORE you have any symptoms
"But why should I see a doctor if there is nothing wrong
with me?" - you ask? Well, to be really safe, you should
ask your doctor to check you out for an H. pylori infection
as this is the cause of over 80% of all stomach ulcers.
In Western countries about 20% to 30% of people under the
age of 40 have the bacteria, while it infects around 50%
- 60% of people over age 60. See the relation to the rule
of thumb pointed out above? Note that not all people infected
with H. pylori will get an ulcer - some people's systems
can tolerate the presence of H. pylori and may not be affected
- Painkillers and Anti-inflammatory drugs
Reduce your intake, or even better, stop taking painkillers
that contain ibuprofen or aspirin for prolonged periods.
Too many people take these for the tiniest of pains, not
knowing they could be setting themselves up for the far
worse pain that an ulcer is going to cause them!
- Eat the correct foods
Although food does not cause ulcers, good nourishment is
always a good idea. Statistics show that ulcers are more
common amongst under nourished people. An easy
to follow diet can help you become aware of the food
sources that can cause an increase in acid levels.
- Aim for a healthier lifestyle
Your stressful job will not cause an ulcer. Neither will
an average intake of alcohol. Smoking in moderation is a
bit more risky. Not one of these habits is going to really
hurt you, but pushing any of these to excess and/or a combination
of these is setting the stage for stomach ulcers, especially
if you have H. pylori.
