Medical treatment of ulcers includes triple antibiotic therapy along with antacids such as Zantac and Tagamet to relieve symptoms. Indeed, this is all that takes place with this treatment; the symptoms are relieved. Antibiotics subdue not only the bacteria, but also the immune system. Tagamet has been known to cause enlarged breasts and sexual dysfunction in men (1989 New England Journal of Medicine). The antibiotic Flagyl has been known to induce breast cancer ((1979, 1982 New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of American Medical Assn.)
What do we recommend for ulcers?
Gastro Health is designed to inhibit the growth of a bacteria know as Helicobacter Pylori, one of the known causes of ulcers and gastritis. This bacteria also inhibits the production of hydrochloric acid, which is designed to destroy this bacteria under normal circumstances. Stress and aging also reduce the formation of HCI making people more susceptible to these conditions as well. For this reason Food Enzymes are a must for most people. Excess stomach acid can destroy the stomachâ€™s protective lining and come in contact with unprotected stomach tissues causing gastritis, burning pain and indigestion. This can result in a peptic ulcer, or ultimately stomach cancer.
Marshmellow Pepsin will aid in soothing the inflamed tissues and counteract excess stomach acids by increasing mucosal fluids. It will help digest proteins which can aid in alleviating allergies and respiratory problems. The pepsin also helps to remove protein waste from the walls of the intestines, providing enhanced absorption of nutrients.
