Although home remedies can be helpful, but do remember these can not replace the efficacy of standard medical treatments for stomach ulcers. Also these home remedies are not standardized through any controlled medical trials so their efficacy is unpredictable.

Following will be helpful for stomach ulcer;

Small frequent meals

Avoid smoking

Avoid large fatty and spicy meals

Prilosec (omeprazole 20mg) available over the counter from pharmacies daily

Aloe Vera

Licorice root

Avoiding Alcohol

All are helpful..

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
