Step 1: OH NOEEEES. DR. Said You Have Ulcers Now What?
Disclaimer: (if you have this symptoms please visit a physician do not wait!! it could be something worst. So, better safe than sorry)
Anyways, Doctor took a look at you and he think you might have ulcers. So, they make several test to find the famous and annoying H. Pyloric virus. This damn virus is the caused of most ulcers in thousands of people world wide. It could be transmitted by fluids like kissing and happy time. If you know what I mean ??
Now, he order several test to verify you have the virus... The test that could detect it are blood, stool samples or the most effective breath test. Once the virus is found he might put you into what's called triple threat therapy.
Step 2: Triple Threat Treatment
Triple threat it's a treatment using 2 types of anti virus and a stomach protector (acid reducer and stomach lining coating aka omeprazol)
Depending your doctor you could do either 2 weeks or 3 weeks of this treatment. It's sooooooooooooo annoying and tons of people quit before the treatment is over. Why??? Cause as I said, it's 2 Antivirus and one stomach protector. In other words tons of pills. And, some of you may know. This many pills (Antivirus) do upset your stomach and you are already in pain. So 1+1=pain
Step 3: What Can You Do While You Are in Antibiotics.
Greek yogurt is your friend. Greek yogurt like Activia will help you with your degistive system by giving it tons of good bacteria know as probiotic. You can also buy probiotics in tablets sold over the counter (OTC) at any local drug store.
Step 4: What to Eat and Not to Eat When You Have Ulcers.

Specially tomato. Anything.
What to eat and not avoid........
Eat a variety of healthy foods from all the food groups. Eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy foods. Whole grains include whole-wheat breads, cereals, pasta, and brown rice. Choose lean meats, poultry (chicken and turkey), fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. A healthy meal plan is low in unhealthy fats, salt, and added sugar. Healthy fats include olive oil and canola oil. Ask your dietitian for more information about a healthy diet.
Step 5: Now the Natural Solution for Acid Reflux.
The trick is apple cinder vinegar. This amazing gift by God is truly powerful and it would help you for several things. To fix your acid reflux, to lose weight and you can even use it for HPB or warts. (by applying cloth and tape it down to the affected area every night and keeping dry during the day it will kill the warts or reduce them)
Apple cinder vinegar it smell super bad and it taste horrible. But, do not worry there is a way to consume it without puking and it actually taste quiet delicious. Yes I'm talking about natural organic honey.
Apple cinder vinegar + natural honey = delicious.
Not just any apple cinder vinegar tho. You need the organic type the onecomes with the mother. (mother, is that cloudy material at the bottom of the vinegar and it works better with it. Trust me mother is needed)
You can buy them virtually anywhere (any super market).
Step 6: How Do We Consume It?
You take it 3 times a day 10 minutes before every meal (important)
Using the cap of the Apple cinder vinegar as a measurement. put 3 caps in a lil bit of water. (see pictured) and add honey to taste. And, mix well.
Drink it all the way down. And, wait 10 mins before eating. You might feel a lil discomfort that goes away supper fast. Once the tens mins are over dig in!!!!
If, you take it this way. It will help you digest the food you are consuming. Which will help you lost weight and over time it will reduce or stop your acid reflux. (trust me)
It has work for me and I feel so much better. Without this secret , I would it have been suffering from pain. Now, if the doctor prescribe any omeprazol. DO NOT Worry you can still use this method. Just take your pills on an empty stomach or directed by your doctor (omeprazol) wait 30 mins to an hour before doing this method and dig in.
Step 7: Review.
Some points I need you to look over are.
-follow your doctor's instructions at all times
-avoid all food that can irritate your stomach
-stop smoking and alcohol.
-no carbonated drinks or sodas
-do not quit the triple threat treatment.
If, by taking all this and you still fill discomfort I also recommend buying an OTC (over the counter) is called Gaviscon. (picture included) It does help alot. Do not abuse it. Cause you do not want to cover the symptoms of disease you might need treatment for (assuming you have do not had an endoscopy)
Also, DO NOT USE BISMOL OR ANY PEPTO BISMOL is not good when you have ulcers. Also BISMOL change the color of your stool to black. The problem with that is, you should be keeping an eye to your stool to analyze if you getting better and or if you're bleeding.
If you a have internal bleeding in your stomach. Your stool should turn black. If, your stool is red. You could be bleeding from your large intestine. So to keep record of color please avoid PEPTO BISMOL.
