It is believed that sea buckthorn oil helps ulcers heal. Is it so? Are there any other products or herbs with a similar effect?- Client.
Indeed, sea buckthorn oil is considered to be one of the products that contribute to the healing of ulcers. Due to its fat content, it has an enveloping and protective effect on the gastric mucosa. And the vitamins present there, for example, A and E, additionally strengthen this action – and the ulcer heals faster. Sea buckthorn oil should be taken 1 teaspoon 2 times a day about 20 minutes before meals.
But if you do not favor sea buckthorn – still this berry is not for an amateur, do not worry. Sunflower or olive oil have a similar effect, they can be added to a variety of dishes.
Now about the herbs. Here the choice is wide enough. For example, oak bark, leaves and flowers of St. John’s wort have anti-inflammatory effects. The leaves of plantain, calendula and yarrow flowers have the same effect. But in chamomile, dill and fennel, the “plus” is different – they have an antispasmodic effect. Both of them help to quickly cope with an exacerbation of peptic ulcer.
But one should not rely only on “folk medicine”. Today there is no doubt that the cause of peptic ulcer and gastritis is the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Therefore, the only effective, quick and safe treatment is drug therapy with antibacterial agents and acid blockers. Traditional medicine in this case is just an addition to the main drugs.
Milk is included in the diet for peptic ulcer disease, but I can not tolerate it. What do i do? – Client.
It was once believed that a glass of milk helps relieve pain during exacerbation of a stomach ulcer, so it was advised to drink it before bedtime. Today it is already obvious – the role of milk is too exaggerated. Moreover, it does not neutralize acid, as previously thought. On the contrary, it enhances the production of gastric juice, which can lead to pain. Today’s recommendations are as follows – milk should be excluded from the diet of the ulcer. Therefore, you have nothing to worry about.
I read that with an ulcer it is not recommended to drink strong tea or coffee. But I just can’t without coffee, I definitely need to drink 2-3 cups a day. Maybe soluble is less safe, but it is not so strong? What can you say about green tea, is it possible to drink it with an ulcer? – Client.
During an exacerbation of a stomach ulcer, you should not drink coffee – neither soluble nor natural. During quiet periods, the requirements are less stringent. You can afford a couple cups of weak coffee per day. It is possible with milk or cream – this is the most favorable option for the stomach.
Black tea with exacerbation of a stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer should be discarded, since this drink stimulates the production of hydrochloric acid and can enhance discomfort. Contrary to popular belief, tightly brewed green tea has the same effect. The ideal tea for people with a stomach ulcer during exacerbation should be slightly brewed and non-hot.
Spicy foods are forbidden to ulcers, but so life becomes boring and bland. Are there any safe spices? – Client.
In the list of prohibited foods for ulcers, any spicy and spicy food. It intensifies the pain by irritating the tissue of already formed ulcers on the walls of the stomach. But if the disease has not yet developed, then spicy food can, on the contrary, stop the appearance of foci. Due to the fact that hot spices, such as chili, kill the bacteria Helicobacter pylori.
At the same time, it was proved that moderate use of seasonings and non-hot spices during treatment does not worsen ulcer healing. So a complete restriction is not required. The main principle here is caution.
My problem is constipation. Is it possible to somehow get rid of them, so as not to provoke an exacerbation of the ulcer? – Client.
Unfortunately, many ulcers are affected by constipation. Violation of the normal functioning of the stomach with peptic ulcer often leads to difficulties with the work of the intestine. But this problem must be solved carefully, without forcing events. Vegetable fats will be a good helper in this matter, they normalize bowel function, improve the emptying of the gallbladder and bile ducts. Therefore, be sure to include in your diet sunflower, olive, corn and cottonseed oil.
It so happened in our country that we eat unforgivably few vegetables and fruits. Hence the fiber deficiency, which is just manifested by a violation of the intestines. The rate of consumption of vegetables and fruits per day is 400-500 grams. However, with exacerbation of gastritis and ulcers, you should not use them in large so as not to additionally injure the gastric mucosa. Vegetables and you can eat boiled, steamed, stewed, but not fried, it is better to bake fruits. Take apples, for example. If you bake them, you get a delicious, and most importantly, healthy dessert, rich in fiber and having enveloping properties.
The main principle of dietary nutrition for ulcers is sparing and mechanically processed food. But you should not sit on rubbed diets for too long, a maximum of 7-10 days. Do not let the intestines be lazy.
With good tolerance, include lactic acid drinks such as yogurt, kefir, acidophilus, yogurt, yogurt in the diet. They favorably affect intestinal activity.
As an ambulance for constipation, prunes are good. Ten to twelve dried berries are first scalded with water and soaked for an hour or two in water. Then they eat it, washed down with the infusion in which they soaked.
I heard that butter helps to heal ulcers, but it harms the figure. How to build your diet in order not to gain extra pounds? – Client.
The daily menu of those who have a stomach ulcer should include products of both animal and plant origin. This is necessary for the optimal ratio of all nutrients. Fats inhibit the secretory function of the stomach, which contributes to the healing of ulcers. But busting is also useless here. Therefore, the norms are as follows: vegetable oil requires 1-2 tablespoons, butter – 10 g per day. Add them to cereals, soups and main dishes.
My mother claims that alcohol and ulcers contradict each other. Is it possible even in periods without exacerbations, you can not afford at least a little alcohol. If nevertheless it is possible, then which drinks are preferable? – Client.
Let’s immediately decide on this issue. It will be about moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages – on holidays and in small quantities. In this case, I do not see any contraindications to not drinking a glass of brandy or whiskey, a thimble of vodka. You can not say about dry and especially fortified wines. To “malicious” ulcers it is not recommended to drink them. Also, they should give up champagne and other carbonated wines.
During exacerbations, alcoholic beverages must be completely avoided. Usually the stomach itself actively resists this – pain intensifies, even vomiting can occur.
Another tip for a safe feast. Before you take a sip of alcohol, you must definitely “appease” your stomach – a bite. You can eat a piece of meat, low-fat fish.
