Stomach or gastric ulcer occur when there is an injury to the tissue lining the stomach. Peptic ulcer refers to the ulcers that occur in either the stomach or the first part of the small intestine, called the duodenum. Most ulcers are caused by a common bacteria found in the stomach called H. Pylori. This bacteria (H. Pylori) can lead to very serious conditions in later years. Originally doctors believed that ulcers were caused by stress, bad diet, smoking, or a variety of other causes. However, research has showed that H. pylori, which are now thought to infect about 3 billion people, is the actual culprit in the ulcer formation. Symptoms of stomach ulcers include abdominal pain (just under the ribcage), indigestion, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, and blood in the vomit or faeces.
At Gold Cost Integrative Wellness we have a test available that is able to detect H.Pylori. Herbs and Nutrients can be used to help kill the bacteria, with a regime to help restore the flora balance of the gut.
