ULCERS

 

Causes

Bugs. 10/4/2005  A fascinating article  Barry Marshall and J. Robin Warren won the 2005 Nobel Prize in for discovering that ulcers can be caused not by stress or genes but by a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori. http://www.sepiamutiny.com/sepia/archives/cat_science.html
H (Helicobacter) pylori often is the cause of many gastric and duodenal diseases such as ulcers.

12/9/05 www.wsj.com The Nobel Prize went to 2 scientists in 2005 for the 1982 Australian discovery that most stomach ulcers are caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori.
H. pylori bacteria is a spiral shaped, gram negative bacterium with 4-6 flagella attached
(thread-like appendages). With it’s flagella, the bacterium drills into the mucus layer of the stomach.
The bacterium excretes enzyme urease, which converts urea into ammonia and bicarbonate.
Release of ammonia lets the bacteria ‘neutralize’ the acidic environment in the stomach, which explains the difficulty in destroying the h. pylori bacterium. Normally the stomach’s acidity destroys bacteria all natural – but not  the h. pylori bacterium! Ammonia is toxic to the epithelial cells and causes those cells to get damaged, beginning a stomach ulcer.
H. pylori bacteria was discovered as early as 1875 by German Scientists who found a spiral shaped bacteria in the stomach lining of a human. The bacteria could not be grown in culture, so further study was soon abandoned. H. pylori bacteria was re-discovered in 1982 by 2 Australian Scientists: Robin Warren & Barry Marshall.
They concluded that most stomach ulcers & gastritis are caused by colonization of H. pylori bacteria.
Wash all fruits and vegetables before consumption or cooking. Avoid consuming raw eggs and
under-cooked meats, especially in ground form.
Wash  hands with soap after the use of the toilet to help avoid contracting the h. pylori bacterium & also to help the bacteria from spreading. http://www.manukahoneyusa.com/CustomerTestimonies.htm

Helicobacter pylori - http://www.bu.edu/bostonia/summer17/how-a-cancer-causing-pathogen-survives-the-stomach/ Summer 2017 - "H. pylori secretes an enzyme called urease, which breaks down urea in the stomach into carbon dioxide & ammonia, giving the smell of ammonia to the breath of infected people. Ammonia, a base, reacts with the stomach mucus, raising its pH & liquefying it. 'It de-gelled the gel, & this reversible gelation was the key to letting this bacterium get across,' says Bansil."

Bananas http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?pfriendly=1&tname=foodspice&dbid=7
Bananas have...antacid effects that protect against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage...
Researchers (also) found that fresh bananas protected the animals' stomachs from wounds...
First, substances in bananas help activate the cells that compose the stomach lining, so they produce a thicker protective mucus barrier against stomach acids. Second, other compounds in bananas called protease inhibitors help eliminate bacteria in the stomach that have been pinpointed as a primary cause of stomach ulcers.
Berries (raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, elderberry, blueberry, bilberry) may help kill stomach & small intestine  H pylori (helicobacter pylori) bacteria causing most peptic ulcers, gastric carcinoma & 1 type of lymphoma.

Chelated zinc and L-carnosine inhibit H.Plylori (bacterium Helico-bacterpylori)
the cause of 80% stomach and 90% duodenum (upper small intestine) ulcers as discovered by 2005 Nobel Prize winners Barry J Marshall & J Robin Warren. 
L-carnosine (consisting of 2 bonded essential amino acids L-histidine and beta-alanine) found in meat and shell beans, when bonded to chelated zinc is effective against H.plylori and increases insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). 
Additionally deglycyrrhizinated licorice root (DGL) & cranberry have a reputation of reducing H.pylori. 12/2006 www.lef.org

Compost.  Best of all comfrey is praised as a compost accelerator, esp for compost tea (garden water fertilizer).
Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, turnips, kale, broccoli, bok choi) may speed up ulcer healing.  1 quart of raw cabbage juice once a week speeds ulcer healing per Dr Garnett Cheney, Stanford University School of Medicine late professor of medicine per James E O'Brien's mini magazine The Miracle of Nature's Healing Foods

De-glycyrrhizin-ated licorice may protect against or heal ulcers if eaten before meals for 2-4 months
WARNING: Regular licorice (containing the glycyrrhizin molecule) may raise blood pressure.
Other useful herbs include goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), American cranesbill (Geranium maculatum), slippery elm (Ulmus fulva), marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), okra (Hibiscus esculentus), & enchinaecea or purple coneflower (Echinacea angustifolia)  Duodenal ulcers often hurt before food is eaten, whereas peptic ulcers often hurt after food is eaten. www.naturodoc.com

Leej, Arthur - http://www.arthurleej.com/Violet.pdf - ELECTRIC MEDICATION - "Rodent ulcers are rough-looking skin ulcers, which usually resist healing. They were first treated with zinc salts in 1905, and a single treatment generally healed them in 2 to 3 weeks. They have been treated with X-rays, surgery, and radium, but the only (best) thing that really works is electrically applied zinc. Some inflammation occurs after treatment, and it is necessary to wait 2 weeks before doing a 2nd treatment—if necessary.  Small cancerous growths were treated (successfully) with zinc ions....

Manuka Honey may eliminate ulcers.  http://tnymed.com/?p=200 
"The finding that Helicobacter pylori is probably the causative agent in many cases of dyspepsia has raised the possibility that the therapeutic action of honey may be due to its antibacterial properties.
Consequently, the sensitivity of Helicobacter pylori to honey was tested, using isolates from biopsies of gastric ulcers. It was found that all 5 isolates tested were sensitive to a 20% (v/v) solution of
manuka honey in an agar well diffusion assay, but none showed sensitivity to a 40% solution of a honey in which the antibacterial activity was due primarily to its content of hydrogen peroxide. [Remember what I explained about how Manuka doesn’t use hydrogen peroxide]" in its antibacterial activity.
Taking raw Manuka Honey for 6 full months has eliminated ulcers in many people.

Grow Licorice From Herb Seeds: Start the Licorice seeds in the early spring indoors.
It is recommended to soak the seed in tepid water for 24 hours before sowing.
Keep the herb seeds moist but not soggy until germination occurs.
Transplant the Licorice herb plants outdoors after danger of frost has passed.
Space the plants 24-36 inches apart in the herb garden." (The species contain up to 400 photo-chemicals.)

Manuka honey - http://www.manukahealth.co.nz/news.cfm?article_id=64
"I took a teaspoon of MGO™ 400+ Manuka honey with a little bit of water before each meal 4 times a week...I soon forgot about my stomach, & my eating was back to normal again...
Dr Chepulis explains the antibacterial properties of MGO™ Manuka honey are due to high concentrations of the compound Methylglyoxal.
'This is a stable compound that occurs naturally in Manuka honey. Importantly, Manuka honey contains levels of Methylgyoxyl that are far greater (up to 600 mg/kg honey) than those found in other honeys (5-10 mg/kg honey) or other foods (coffee and cocoa).
It is also stable in the presence of enzymes that readily degrade hydrogen peroxide, the non-stable antibacterial compound found in most honeys. For this reason Manuka honey can be an effective antibacterial agent in the gut, whereas other honeys are not...
It was not until 2006 that Professor Thomas Henle, of the Technical University of Dresden, Germany, identified Methylglyoxal as manuka honey’s dominant antibacterial constituent.'
Dr Chepulis says the precursor for dietary Methylglyoxal forms naturally in the Manuka plant and is transferred to the nectar which bees collect to make honey.
The Manuka bush is unique to New Zealand and manuka honey is the world’s only 100% natural food shown in numerous scientific studies to have effective and reliable stable antibacterial activity. However, the level of Methylglyoxal can vary due to soil and climate conditions & because bees may also collect pollen from other plants at the same time."
