Peptic Ulcers

Siberian Pine Nut Oil has been used for centuries as a traditional remedy for peptic ulcers, gastritis and dyspeptic symptoms in Europe and Asia.

The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ offers a natural solution in the effective treatment of peptic ulcers.

What are gastric and duodenal ulcers? A peptic ulcer is a sore in the lining of your stomach or duodenum. A peptic ulcer in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer, a peptic ulcer in the duodenum (the first part of your small intestine) is called a duodenal ulcer.

Most peptic ulcers develop in the stomach or duodenum, however a peptic ulcer may also may develop in the oesophagus. What causes peptic ulcers? Various factors like stress, old age, bad diet, alcohol abuse, long term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, pain medications and bacterial or viral infections can all contribute to the development of peptic ulcers.

Please see CAUSES OF STOMACH PROBLEMS and the effects of bad digestion. What we have noticed at The Other Option, is that those customers who experience stomach problems also suffers high levels of stress.

With the exception of the elderly (who are prone to stomach problems due to decreased production of stomach acid), we find that the majority of people who suffer from peptic ulcers are also dealing with highly stressful lifestyles.

Even those that have been diagnosed with H. pylori, have one thing in common, STRESS.

Sometimes customers don’t even realise that their bodies are reacting to stress. A good way to find out if you’re living a stressful lifestyle is to take a look at your quality of sleep and rest. If you are having trouble getting a good night’s sleep, chances are that your body will be suffering from sleep deprivation. This has the same effect on the body as emotional or mental stress.

What does this lead to?

Both stress and low levels of stomach acid are known to inhibit digestion and cause peptic ulcers. This is because when food is not digested effectively, it ferments in the stomach forming gasses and alcohols. Alcohols are corrosive to the mucosal lining and can cause inflammation and ulcerations.

Gases create pressure in the stomach and can force these juices to reflux causing further damage to the oesophagus. Improving digestion and controlling stress levels will assist in preventing the development of inflammation and ulcers.
