Peptic Stomach Ulcer Natural Herbal Ayurvedic Treatment In Melbourne Australia


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.
