Your stomach has digestive juice that contain hydrochloric acid and other enzymes. The stomach lining is coated with mucus to withstand the acidity without being damaged. Sometimes the lining of your stomach wears down due to the action of bacteria and other factors. When it happens, the digestive juice damage the stomach lining causing a sore known as an ulcer.
An ulcer is a sore that occurs in the inner lining of the stomach or upper small intestine, also called the duodenum. When it is in the stomach, it is a gastric ulcer, if it is in the duodenal, then it is called a duodenal ulcer. They are both types of Peptic ulcer.
For many years, it was though that ulcers were caused by stress, alcohol, or spicy food. However modern research shows they are usually caused by a specific bacterial infection in the stomach and upper intestine, certain medicines and smoking, etc.
For years people have believed that stress caused ulcers. While stress does contribute to a number of gastrointestinal issue. (ex- Irritable bowel syndrome), it is not the cause of ulcers.
Medications, a chronic bacterial infection has been identified in 65-85 percent of those found to have stomach and duodenal ulcers.
Myth-1: Spicy food in the primary cause for stomach ulcer.
Myth-2: Stomach ulcer is treatable.
Myth-3: Milk can heal ulcer.
People with type a blood are more likely to develop cancerous stomach ulcers. Duodenal ulcers tend to appear in people with type o blood, possibly because they do not produce the substance on the surface of blood cells that may protect the lining of the duodenum.
Signs and Symptoms of ulcer varies from person to person and depending on the type of ulcers. Some common symptoms are:
The most common symptoms of a peptic ulcer is a dull or burning pain in your stomach, between the navel and breastbone, this pain may last from a few minutes to a few hours and may come and disappear for weeks.
Duodenal ulcer occurs most often in the first part of the duodenum or in the pre-pyloric region of the stomach (Antrim).
Gastritis ulcers are most frequently seen on the lesser curve of the stomach at the junction of the body and antrum.
RJR herbal medicines have shown to be effective in balancing the enzymes and correcting the ulcer internally.
There are two main types of peptic ulcers. Duodenal and gastric ulcer. They have almost same signs and symptoms. The most common way to distinguish between them is noticing what times you feel pain relative to your eating schedule.
It forms in the upper small intestine, if you feel stomach pain severe hours after eating or a stomach ache that wakes you up in the middle of the night, it could be the result of a duodenal ulcer, the pain usually improves after you have eaten.
This one forms in the lining of the stomach, the most common symptom is pain, that oft6en occurs when food is still in the stomach, just after eating.
Peptic Ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptoms of a peptic is burning stomach pain. Stomach acid makes the pain worse, as does having an empty stomach. The pain can often be relieved by eating certain foods that buffer stomach acid or by taking an acid-reducing medication, but then it may come back, the pain may be worse between meals and at night. Many people with peptic ulcer don’t even have symptoms.

Helicobacter Pylori commonly infects the stomach. About 50% of the world’s population has a Helicobacter pylori, often without any symptoms. Researchers believe people can transmit Helicobacter pylori from person to person, especially during childhood.
The Helicobacter pylori bacteria stick to the layer of mucus in the digestive tract and cause inflammation which can cause this protective lining to breakdown this breakdown is a problem because your stomach contains strong acid intended to digest food without the mucus layer to protect it, the acid can eat into stomach tissues.
However, the most people the presence of Helicobacter Pylori doesn’t have a negative impact only 10% to 15% of people with Helicobacter Pylori end up developing ulcers.
