How to treat intestinal ulcers at home

A duodenal ulcer is a chronic disease that is a defect in the lining of the organ. Unlike erosive formation, it is deeper, affecting the submucosal and muscle tissue. Ulcerative wounds can be of different sizes - from a match head to a large apple. The prevalence of the pathology is quite high and in some regions is 15 percent. The disease occurs more often in men. Folk remedies are very popular in the treatment of duodenal ulcers. With their help, it is possible to accelerate tissue healing and normalize digestion processes.

Oatmeal jelly

Oats contain a lot of starchy substances, which, when cooked, turn into a decoction, which is why its consistency becomes viscous and sticky. Drinking jelly envelops the walls of the stomach, creating a protective film that relieves irritation and reduces the acidity of gastric juice. As a result, jelly quickly relieves heartburn, eliminates belching and nausea.

To prepare homemade jelly, add a glass of washed oats to a liter of water, bring to a boil and cook over low heat for half an hour. Then the boiled broth is brought to the same volume with boiling water, boiled for a few more minutes, cooled and filtered. Kissel should be drunk three times a day, half a glass half an hour before meals. The drug is extremely effective: within a day after the start of treatment, attacks of pain due to exacerbation of peptic ulcer disease cease.


Vegetable juices

Freshly squeezed juices have the most pronounced healing properties. Peptic ulcer disease is well treated in such a popular way as vegetable juice. Vegetables such as cabbage, beets, carrots, and celery are used to prepare it. Cabbage juice is made from fresh and juicy cabbage leaves; they need to be passed through a juicer or crushed in a blender, and then squeezed through cheesecloth. The drink is taken 15-20 minutes before eating for 10 days. Then take a 2-week break and continue again if necessary.

Beetroot drink is made in the same way, but the finished concentrate must be diluted with clean water in a 1:1 ratio. You need to take this remedy half a glass 30 minutes before meals. Drinking celery is suitable for patients with low acidity, as it provokes the production of hydrochloric acid. This product is also taken before meals, half a glass. Chamomile oil helps fight inflammation and bacterial infections, helps reduce pain, and accelerates the healing of erosions and ulcers. Take 1 tablespoon 3-4 times a day before meals. Although such methods have proven to be effective, when treating the duodenum, it is better to coordinate their use with your doctor.

Potato juice, sea buckthorn and propolis

These drugs are used in the well-known course of therapy for peptic ulcer disease. Treatment consists of three stages:

  1. Take 100 ml of raw potato juice twice a day. To prepare one serving, two or three well-washed medium-sized tubers are grated on a fine grater along with the peel (“the eyes” must be cut out, as they contain a lot of solanine). The resulting pulp is squeezed through gauze. The juice should be drunk immediately after preparation; it cannot be stored. The greatest amount of substances beneficial to the stomach can be extracted from potato varieties whose tubers are red. Their juice, rich in biologically active components, has an anti-inflammatory and enveloping effect, optimizes the acidity of the stomach contents. Treatment lasts a week.
  2. Therapy with propolis tincture. A heaping teaspoon of “bee glue” crushed into powder is infused for a week in 100 ml of medical alcohol and then filtered. Take the drug three times a day, an hour after meals, diluting 25 drops of tincture in a glass of water. Propolis successfully relieves inflammation and promotes rapid healing of ulcerated areas of the mucous membrane. The stage lasts three weeks.
  3. Take a teaspoon of sea buckthorn oil three times a day for a month. You can make your own medicinal remedy from sea buckthorn seeds or use a pharmaceutical preparation.

Contraindications to herbal treatment of ulcers

Herbal medicine is contraindicated if: 1. The patient has allergic reactions to the components of the preparation. 2. The patient has allergic reactions that occurred during treatment with phytotherapeutic drugs. 3. As the only therapy for severe conditions, such as: severe pain and dyspeptic syndrome, threat of bleeding or perforation of the wall of the stomach or duodenum, multiple ulcers, etc. 4. In case of incomplete examination, when the diagnosis of an ulcer must be differentiated from other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, including when a malignant neoplasm is suspected.

Herbal medicine can be used, but with caution: 1. For self-treatment for prophylactic purposes. 2. If the patient’s condition worsens. Only a doctor can tell you what is causing the deterioration in a given patient and make the right decision on further treatment tactics! But remember, seek medical help as soon as possible if your condition worsens! 3. During pregnancy, it is necessary to individually select herbal medicine depending on the duration of pregnancy and concomitant diseases. 4. When breastfeeding, I also recommend not to select herbs on your own, but to consult your doctor, since all herbs pass through breast milk into the child’s body.

Treatment prognosis

What effect can be achieved in treatment and why is traditional treatment prescribed by a doctor so important? Defects in the mucosa of the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as ulcers and erosions, can be acute, that is, appear when the mucosa is directly exposed to irritating substances, certain medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and even as a result of a stressful situation. In this case, the patient should immediately receive treatment with chemical drugs that act quickly and promote rapid epithelization and scarring of defects in the gastric or duodenal mucosa. The use of herbal medicine in this case is extremely unjustified, since there is a high risk of developing complications of peptic ulcer disease, such as bleeding or perforation. These conditions are life-threatening and must be treated in a surgical hospital!

But if the peptic ulcer has a long, chronic course with frequent relapses, along with treatment with chemical drugs, herbal therapy can be used. In this case, adding herbal medicine to treatment helps reduce side effects from therapy with chemical drugs, reduce the severity of side effects, and speeds up the treatment process.

It is also recommended to take prophylactic phytotherapeutic agents in the autumn-spring season in order to prevent relapses of peptic ulcer disease.

In order to determine which treatment is right for you, you need a comprehensive examination: 1. laboratory tests: general blood test, general urine test with diastase, biochemical blood test, coprogram, feces for occult blood 2. FEGDS with test for Helicobacter and biopsy 3. Ultrasound examination of the abdominal organs 4. ECG 5. Consultation with a therapist 6. Consultation with a gastroenterologist 7. If indicated, consultation with an oncologist After establishing the correct diagnosis, choosing treatment will not be difficult. And adding herbal preparations to therapy will speed up and facilitate the healing process. Be healthy!

The effectiveness of plantain in the treatment of gastric diseases has been known since ancient times. There are several industrially produced pharmaceutical preparations made from this plant.

At home, peptic ulcers are treated with tea from dry plantain leaves: a teaspoon of the raw material is poured into a glass of boiling water and the resulting infusion is taken half an hour before meals three times a day. Fresh juice, which can be squeezed from freshly picked plantain leaves, is also very useful. It is also drunk half an hour before meals three times a day, gradually increasing the dose from half a teaspoon to a tablespoon per dose.



A stomach ulcer is an insidious pathology that requires immediate treatment. Otherwise, there is a possibility of developing health-threatening, and in some cases life-threatening, conditions. When this pathology is detected, a set of therapeutic measures is prescribed, including taking herbal decoctions.

The use of calendula is often recommended to eliminate ulcers. This plant is present in almost all gastric preparations, as it has a number of negative effects:

  • normalizes digestion;
  • strengthens the immune system;
  • eliminates inflammation;
  • promotes the healing of wounds on the mucous membrane.

A ready-made medicinal decoction can be purchased at a pharmacy or made independently. To do this, add dried calendula inflorescence to boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes. Then, the mixture is allowed to brew for a couple of hours, after which it is filtered and consumed three times a day.


Substances contained in the body of the tinder fungus (dry birch fungus, or chaga) can have a healing, regenerating, hemostatic and anti-inflammatory effect. To treat peptic ulcers, a water infusion of chaga is used.

It is prepared like this: the tinder fungus is soaked in water for five hours and passed through a meat grinder. Then a glass of the resulting mass is poured with a liter of heated (not hot) water and left for two days in a warm place. The strained solution is taken one third of a glass three times a day half an hour before meals. The duration of treatment is one month.


Ginger is endowed with a number of beneficial properties that have a beneficial effect on the digestive system as a whole. The root of this plant is the best prevention of ulcers. Since the substances contained in the culture suppress pathogenic bacteria that cause pathology.

However, using ginger for acute stomach ulcers is strictly prohibited. This culture can provoke irritation of the mucous membrane and thus intensify the inflammatory process, due to which scarring of the defect occurs more slowly.

Ginger for ulcers will be useful only at the stage of attenuation of the pathology. This product is consumed prepared in sugar syrup.
