    recipes to help someone with an ulcer?

    Sat Sep 15, 2007 5:34 am Groupie
    Does anyone know some good recipes for someone dealing with a stomach ulcer? Someone told me cabbage is really good to feed someone with an ulcer and I know that I should avoid giving them fried food among other junk that I wouldn't feed my friend. Any great ulcer remedies out there or am I too hopeful?

    The best recipe for someone with a stomach ulcer is drug treatment to eradicate Helicobacter pylori. While some foods give temporary relief, they are just temporary.
    It's a case of eat what you can and what is tolerated.

    Well, of course Missy Wombat is right, they should be getting treated.

    In the meantime, you might want to paw through this site. It's got links to good foods, bad foods, recipes.

    Also, I haven't tried this, but you mentioned cabbage, so here is a recipe.

    I'm surprised to see the red pepper in there, I thought one was supposed to stay away from spicy foods. I'm sure there are cabbage soup recipes on this site as well.

    I also read that the sufferer should use a juicer and drink a quart of cabbage juice a day. (Personally, I thought "yuck") icon_lol.gif

    This is for a poor family in the Philippines where the man with the ulcer is unemployed, and they are living off $60 a month that I am giving the wife for various jobs. I don't think I can afford to buy the medications...and I'm not sure yet if I could even find them here, but I'll look into it. Thanks for the link, though it mostly has meat meals, and I'd rather make vegetarian ones. That cabbage drink does sound terrible, but if it will help I'm sure he would do it. I have a neighbor with a juicer that could help us out, so thanks! Any other ideas are welcome. Most of the filippinos have to relay on natural medicines they can afford as no one can afford medication. Even if they go to the clinic's there are only samples for about a week every 3 months and if they prescribe something, people can rarely afford to go buy the perscription.

    Read this carefully, because I don't know if you can get licorice in the form you need. It can apparently have very detrimental effects in the wrong form. Looks like you have to be careful there.

    I cannot vouch for any of the information I am sending you, I just don't know.

    Thanks for your help. The information was really interesting and helpful. I think I'm going to pay for them to go to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully they can suggest something more than a natural remedy that's affordable. The more I learn the more I'm worried. I really hope I can help them. Thanks.

    My son Adam is nine. He has earmarked $10 of his allowance to go to help someone else, and I told him I'd match it. We haven't figured out where to send it yet. If it can help your friend recover, and you need it, z-mail me.
    My family is always living on the financial edge, but when I see $60 a month, I have no idea. I don't know what the currency is there, either, and if you'd lose most in the conversion.

    What a beautiful heart you and your son have! We are taking them to the doctor today and pray we can take care of it. It's not easy to send money to the Philppines because of the corruption, but I think it's beautiful that you and your son would like to help. It's hard being a broke student over here because there is so much more I wish I could do, but do what I can. Thanks for your kindness, but I think we'll find a way to take care of it. I'll keep you updated.

    Thank you.

    I was just with a friend, and she's a really nice woman, but she was complaining about how hard it is to live on $100,000 a year. Then she got into her new minivan, and headed home to her newly remodeled house.

    I don't think I can quite look at her the same, now. There IS enough to go around, if we'd share a little.

    Bless you, I hope it goes well.

    Happy endings!!! We took the husband to the doctor and got the prescription. We were so thankful it only came to $20 for the first month and $20 total for the following two months. They didn't want us to buy any of it for them and kept telling us they would find another way. I knew they wouldn't find another way and it was so hard for them to even accept that we bought them the first month for now. We know they wouldn't have bought it themselves. Right before going to the doctor our school's maitence manager talked to us about needing to hire someone with good character and now the husband will be working here starting next month! I'm so happy things are looking good for them now and I'm so happy to have been able to help! Thanks again. She is going to make the cabbage soup with me tomorrow to take to him also.

    My wife was just diagnosed with an ulcer, and cabbage is definitely on the 'foods to avoid' list, along with any other vegetables that can be considered 'gassy'

    You may want to look into the PH balances of foods - there are lists all over the internet of PH ratios and what is high in acidity and what is not. For instance, meat is extremely acidic on the far end of the scale where tofu is on the other end of the scale. Your body has to produce more acids to break down certain kinds of foods and this creates major issues, and can even cause the ulcer. My DH had a bad ulcer that had him throwing up every morning. We stopped cooking with meat, especially don't eat red meat, and started eating more healthy. Less salt, less prepackaged convenience foods. More veggies, etc. Look into it, let me know if you have any questions. GOOD LUCK!

    I looked over the info at webpage and it listed several foods to consume or avoid if you have heartburn. I found no links specifically for ulcers (one doesn't always equal the other). I do need some help, though. I've been to all the bookstores & the public library. No ulcer cookbooks (hard to imagine, given the vast number of people who suffer them).
    I have a sick parent who cannot eat due to bleeding ulcers and she's got to eat something during her chemo/radiation treatments for stomach cancer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
