Stomach Ulcers

An ulcer is an open wound in the stomach. Ulcers can cause chronic pain and discomfort, especially during/after meals, greatly affecting quality of life. They can also be a gateway for infection to enter your bloodstream; so it is best to take them seriously. 

Symptoms include:

  • A history of acid reflux

  • Acute stomach pain (typically under the left side of your ribs, sometimes radiating into the upper part of the belly)

  • Vomit with the consistency and appearance of coffee grounds (this is the reaction between your stomach acid and blood)

  • Pain when eating

  • Dark, sticky black stools

  • If  you begin to feel ill (headache, exhaustion, very pale skin, pain in the GI tract), seek medical attention. 

Changing  Your Diet

Foods to Limit
  • Alcohol

  • sodas/carbonated beverages

  • Highly acidic foods: strawberries, coffee, pineapple, green chili, tomatoes, citrus (especially lemon), hibiscus, rose petals.

  • Animal products: Typically red meat and cheese are the hardest for your stomach to process. Good organic eggs contain healthy fats that repair stomach lining, so keeping to one a day is acceptable. Broths are also ok. 

  • Foods with chemical additives in the ingredients

Foods to Add

Following a diet of exclusively simple, cooked food for 3-4 weeks will keep your stomach from working so hard and becoming irritated

  • Applesauce or cooked fruits (apricots, peaches, mangos etc.) without spices or preservatives

  • Oatmeal and other well-cooked grains (rice, barley, wheat berries, tofu etc.)

  • Flax seed: soak overnight in a jar. Then use a blender and mix with oats and/or apples.

  • Bone broth/soups: bone broths extract the bone marrow in the center of the bones and the collagen from the joint tissues

  • Mashed potatoes without added fat

  • Eggs (only one at a time and well cooked)

  • Beans—well cooked and mashed

Herbal Fasting Mixture

Take a Fasting Herbal mixture between meals, ensuring an hour gap after consuming anything else and refraining from eating for another hour afterward. This regimen supports stomach repair.​

50 approximately drops of the Tónico para los Riñones in a cup and pour about ¼-1/2 cup of boiling water over it and stir vigorously to evaporate the alcohol

  • ½ tsp. (about)  slippery elm bark powder  

  • ½-1 tsp. (about) raw honey

  • Nopal: You can buy in chunks, or about 1/2 tsp. of freeze dried powder (you can find it in a health food store or online)

Add water or more of any of the ingredients to get a drinkable consistency and a good flavor.


Drink slowly, taking a few minutes to drink it all so it coats the stomach a little bit at a time.

Rub your Cayenne Plus and Castor oil on the stomach valve again after taking this formula

Herbs and Supplements to Take Daily
  • Tea: start your day with a cup of chamomile, alfalfa, dandelion, or mint tea. Add a little honey for taste if you prefer, but no more than 1/4 tsp. Avoid herbal tea blends found in stores, green, red, or black teas, rose petals, and hibiscus.  Walking a bit or sitting still for a few minutes while you drink your tea should help get your bowels moving, which will reduce pain by taking pressure off the stomach

  • B-12: Before your first meal of the day, dissolve a 1000 mcg B-12 tablet under your tongue. When you're ready to eat, make sure your food is warm and eat slowly.
    An ulcerated stomach lining is generally unable to produce B-12, which allows us to absorb iron. Chronic iron deficiency causes extreme exhaustion and impedes many basic functions. Healing from an ulcer is not possible without B-12 and a supplement speeds up the process.

  • Cayenne Plus Oil & Castor oil: After you eat, combine a small amount of both Cayenne Plus Oil and castor oil and rub it in, starting at the bottom of the sternum and moving to the left along the edge of the bottom rib. Rub downwards and to the left, holding the stomach valve shut for a few seconds. Then rub in a clockwise motion (from your right to your left, down, across, and then up on your right side).  and in the same direction around your umbilicus (bellybutton) in the middle of your belly.

  • Alfalfa: Open 2-3 capsules (½-¾ tsp. loose powder) and pour hot water over it to make a tea or sprinkle the powder into a soup.  You should take 4-6 capsules throughout the day. Alfalfa is a powerful antioxidant food. It contains iron, B-vitamins, vitamin C, and all trace minerals; this is super-nutrition which helps your body repair and rebuild damaged tissues

  • Cayenne:  Take at least ¼ tsp. of the hottest variety you can tolerate* with all meals.  It is important to empty the capsules and not eat them, as they are made of gelatin (a protein, which can irritate your stomach).  Later, as the stomach heals, you can take capsules when you need the convenience. 

*The average bottle of powdered cayenne found in a grocery store is usually a good place to start. If you're unable to tolerate that, you can start with sweet paprika, a more mild form of cayenne.
