Peptic Ulcers

Peptic ulcers are sores in the stomach lining and the first segment of the small intestine known as the duodenum.

The most frequent symptom is scorching pain.

Starts before or after meals, and is particularly troublesome at night.

The pain might last anywhere from a few minutes to many hours.

From days to weeks, the condition deteriorates.

Peptic ulcers occur when the acids that aid in digestion destroys the lining of the stomach and duodenum.

Peptic ulcers can be acute, shallow, and numerous in nature. Chronic ulcers are solitary, deep, scirrhous lesions.

Causes of Acute Ulcer:

  • Half of the patients suffer from acute ulcers as a result of using aspirin and pain relievers.
  • Stress increases acid secretion and leads to the formation of stress ulcers.
  • Cushing ulcers arise as a result of brain damage and neurological surgeries.
  • This is due to increased gastrin levels.
  • After suffering from severe burns, an ulcer is known as curlings ulcer develops.
  • Patients using steroids may develop steroid ulcers, which are acute sores.
  • Infection with Helicobacter pylori.

Chronic Peptic Ulcers are caused by:

  • Mucosal resistance has been reduced.
  • The development of ulcers in the stomach is caused by Pyloro duodenal reflux, regurgitated bile, and duodenal fluids.
  • Inadequate mucosal barrier: a surface layer of mucus protects against acid.
  • Ulcers occur when this layer is lacking.
  • Anxiety Stress and sleeplessness.
  • Irregular diet, spicy food, and excessive tea consumption
  • Smoking and Drinking

Peptic Ulcer Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathy has some excellent treatments for peptic ulcer illness. However, for a homoeopath, the disease’s symptoms are far more essential than the ulcer itself. This is because, in order to choose the best drug, a homoeopath must distinguish between the finer manifestations of an illness, which vary from person to person.

A homoeopath not only attempts to treat the ulcer but also to eliminate the underlying proclivity to develop it. The homoeopath seeks to determine not only ‘What is wrong?’ but also ‘Why it went wrong?’, ‘Where it began going wrong?’, ‘How it progressed to the current stage?’ and so on. To discover answers to all of these concerns, a homoeopath attempts to acquire as much information as possible about the patient’s previous and present medical history, family history, general physical and psychological traits, and so on. This hard effort on the side of the homoeopath not only aids in the removal of acute symptoms and ulcers but is also capable of reducing the proclivity for relapse. The ‘on-again/off-again character of the condition is frequently eradicated, and the person’s overall health improves as a consequence.
