Ayurvedic Remedies for Stomach Ulcers: A Natural Approach to Healing


Peptic ulcer is an ulcer of the mucous membrane lining of the stomach. People with gastritis, acidity and heartburn are more prone to peptic ulcer. This disease affects 20% people with chronic gastritis.



Causes of Peptic Stomach Ulcer



Peptic ulcer is caused due to various reasons. No single cause can be held responsible for peptic ulcers. Main causes are discussed as follows:


  1. Excessive production of acid from gastrinomas corrodes the inner surface of esophagus, stomach or small intestine.
  2. A bacterial infection caused by Helicobacter pylori is responsible for the development of ulcers in stomach. This bacterium is a normal flora of the mucosal lining of the stomach that usually covers and protects the tissues present in the stomach lining and small intestine. It has the ability to cause inflammation of the inner layer of stomach leading to the production of ulcer.
  3. Certain pain relievers such as ibuprofen, ketoprofen, aspirin and naproxen can irritate or inflame the inner lining of the stomach and small intestine. Regular or frequent use of these medications may cause peptic ulcers.
  4. Prescription medications to treat osteoporosis such as bisphosphonates and supplements of potassium may lead to ulcers.


Symptoms of Peptic Stomach Ulcer


A peptic ulcer can be symptom-less at times. But if at all there is an onset of symptom, the commonly found symptoms are cited below:


  1. Nausea or vomiting
  2. Bloating
  3. A burning pain in the middle or upper portion of the stomach, usually between meals or at night.
  4. The stomach pain may disappear for a few days or weeks and retrieves again.
  5. Heartburn


Severe symptoms of peptic ulcer include the following:


  1. Blood vomiting having an appearance of either red or black in colour.
  2. Stool consisting of dark blood or black and tarry stool
  3. Drastic changes in appetite
  4. Abrupt and unexplained loss of weight
  5. Chronic pain in the middle as well as upper abdomen


Risk Factors of Peptic Ulcer


Some factors heighten the risk of developing an ulcer. Such factors include:


Family history


If peptic ulcer already persists in a family, there is a considerable risk for the other members of the family to develop it at a later point of time.


Excessive consumption of tobacco


If an individual affected with H. pylori consumes tobacco on a regular basis, it certainly does increase the chances of having peptic ulcers.


Daily consumption of alcohol


Regular alcohol intake erodes the mucosal lining of the stomach and increases the production of stomach acid leading to the development of peptic ulcers.




People who are 50 years or older may be considered at risk of having peptic ulcers associated to the consumption of several pain relievers and osteoporosis related medications.


Complications of Peptic Stomach Ulcers 


As soon as the signs and symptoms direct towards peptic ulcer, one should get it diagnosed because if left undiagnosed and untreated, peptic ulcer can result in various complications, details of which are discussed below:


Internal bleeding


It manifests itself in one of the two ways- either slow blood loss (anemia) or rapid loss of blood that requires hospitalization or blood transfusion.


Production of scar tissue


Peptic ulcers may lead to the production of scar tissue that blocks the passage of food through the digestive tract making the patient feel full very quickly and vomit. This results in weight loss.




Long-term sustenance of peptic ulcer perforates the wall of the stomach leading to a fatal abdominal disorder called peritonitis.


Peptic Ulcer in Ayurveda


According to the ancient Ayurveda, peptic ulcer is basically a disease that occurs due to an imbalance in the three doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. In all the cases, an aggravation of pitta is noted.


In the language of Ayurveda, stomach ulcer is known as annadravshool, annadrava meaning assimilated food and shool meaning pain. On the other hand, duodenal ulcer is known as parinaamshool, parinaam referring to post-digestive fluid and shool meaning pain.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

    Vishnu Datt Sharma- C.E.O

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
