    Abstract

    In recent years, infection of the stomach with the organism Helicobacter Pylori has been found to be the main cause of gastric ulcers, one of the common ailments afflicting humans. Excessive acid secretion in the stomach, reduction in gastric mucosal blood flow, constant intake of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), ethanol, smoking, stress etc. are also considered responsible for ulcer formation. The prevalent notion among sections of population in this country and perhaps in others is that "red pepper" popularly known as "Chilli," a common spice consumed in excessive amounts leads to "gastric ulcers" in view of its irritant and likely acid secreting nature.

    I can remember when ulcers were thought to be the result of food irritants, and victims were advised to drink milk and cream to soothe the stomach lining. That was in my lifetime, and not all that long ago.

    One of the best natural treatments for H.Pylori (a powerful bacteria living in the mucosal lining of your stomach & small intestines) is plain old "raw garlic." Don't eat too much at once, as the acillin in garlic has a kick and can burn a little if you have ulcers. For bacterial infections, raw garlic is unbeatable. Even a serious staph infection, like MRSA, is no match for raw garlic.

    Islander, I remember those days too - doesn't seem that long ago.

    The link you posted is pretty much the same info, almost word for word, as my post. Did you mean to post a different link?

    Oops, sorry. I've deleted my link. I thought I was connecting to the full article, but I failed to notice it was paywalled. Actually, the information in the abstract is really all that we need.
