Gastrointestinal ulceration

Posted by Happygal on September 26, 2003 at 23:10:04:

Hi,

There is an article in the archives that says that one of the effects of chronic stress is gastrointestinal ulceration. I'm convinced that is the next thing for me to heal, since my current symptoms sound a lot like the description for ulcers on conventional medical websites, and things that soothe the GI tract provide temporary relief.

After searching archives and web, the remedy for healing ulcers that sounds best for me is a thirty day regimen of neem tea. The instructions say, between meals, drink a cup of neem tea along with one teaspoon of a bismuth-containing product usually used for indigestion.

Does anyone have any experience with neem? It sounds expensive, but effective and natural.

About bismuth, I found a company that sells liquid bismuth 100 mL as a trace mineral. Would that be a suitable, safe substitute for pepto-bismol (which I think is awful)?

Thanks in advance for all replies.

Best wishes,
Happygal

since they say that most ulcers are from h pylorie bacteria
and just because it heals everything else I would try
cayenne and salt water but you know me.

I irritated my stomach mixing different supps and the cay/salt
would ease the pains till it wasn't needed. drinking tea
aggrivated it so I only take one supp at a time especially
if I am going to drink the tea.

My husband had the h pylorie bacteria and part of the treatment was bismuth. His bacteria is gone now btw. I think it's pretty well accepted in the medical field that ulcers are caused by this bacteria, the bismuth might be the best idea.

Hi,Carol.

Since everyone has this bacteria in their gut, why does not everyone have ulcers?

The real question is WHY the bacteria gets out of control in some people?

I agree that is the question that should be addressed. I was simply saying that this is how the medical profession deals with the out of control bacteria and since the origin of this thread mentioned bismuth, I was moved to write my observation. The vedics have been around since before the time of Christ and with the mention of neem, I assumed that this original poster was following ayervedic guidelines for treating this condition. Now we know how people from India feel about meditation, don't we? But yet they still prescribe medication along with meditation for illness.

Thanks, Carol.

As I have always said: It is only by combining all forms of healing (including allopathy) that we will come into the health care system of the future.

Hi,

I just wanted to post this website for neem in case anyone was interested in knowing what it is. I started taking the neem today and I already feel better. It is an herb from India traditionally used for GI tract distress of many kinds, and many other medicinal uses.

Following your discussion, it makes sense to me that the increase in h. pylori would be a result of the gastrointestinal mucosa being weakened (and the result of the dysbiosis caused by the extra acid), and the h. pylori is not the cause of GI ulceration.

Thanks for the discussion.

Best wishes,
Happygal
