DRINK COFFEE IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM A STOMACH ULCER?
Do you know why you should never crouch forward when eating? Do you also know why milk protein that is contained in cream and milk should never be used to treat stomach ulcers? Even though they can have an initial neutralizing effect on stomach acid?
According to recent research, these are examples of innocent mistakes almost everyone makes when going on a stomach ulcer diet. But they’re small potatoes compared to the most common mistake of all – not knowing which food to avoid and which foods can help relieve your ulcer.
Here’s the problem, not all of us are the same. We all have different food tolerance level. A particular diet that is useful for one patient can be downright dangerous for another person. If a stomach ulcer is not treated correctly in the initial stage, it can develop into a stomach cancer. Imagine, a simple and harmless ulcer can develop into a terminal illness simply by choosing the wrong diet.
Do you want to change your ulcer diet or face weeks to months of torturous therapy, drugs, and surgery? One lady that I knew had to surgically remove three-quarters of her stomach! The only types of food she can eat are soup.
The answer is simple. Change your diet and you can change your life. Not only would you decrease the chances of your ulcer worsening, but you will also feel and look better. According to recent breakthrough research, the key to lowering the secretion of gastric acid and reducing the size of a stomach ulcer is by having a healthy diet. The researchers have poured thousands of hours of research on the best way to eat properly. A doctor from Australia even infected himself with bacteria to see how it causes an ulcer. Through trial and error, they concluded the following secrets on having a healthy stomach ulcer diet:
Diet Secret #1
You can instantly lose weight and supress your appetite by increasing the number of meals you have during the day. Rather than eating three huge meals a day, have at least 5-6 small meals per day. This will prevent you from overeating and make you hungry. Furthermore, take your time eating and chew your food.
Diet Secret #2
Avoid eating the following fruits and vegetables: green pepper, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, turnips, sprouts and all types of tomato based products– these vegetables form gas in your stomach.
Fruits with high citrus levels like oranges, pineapples, berries, lemon, etc should be avoided because it increases the acidity content in your stomach.
Diet Secret #3
Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages. These drinks will increase gastric acidity. However, small amounts can be tolerated if taken during or near meal time.
Diet Secret #4
Your food should be rich in fiber that comes from fruits and vegetables.
Diet Secret #5
Avoid eating foods that have high sugar and fat content like chocolate, cheese, corn beef, and sausages.
