There is not a lot we can say for sure about ulcers other than they hurt… a lot! Medical professionals have prognosticated about the root cause of ulcers for years but have not settled on one. They have claimed ulcers are due to such things as stress, alcohol, pharmaceutical use and most recently genetics. To sum it up, they have no idea.
Nor do they have a quick solution for you as many conventional treatments take up to 40-50 days! However, there is one natural solution that has had the support of medical research behind it for decades, but has not been publicized (such is often the case with effective natural remedies that are not tied to a brand nor profitable).
Cabbage juice one of the most advanced natural treatments for ulcers
In 1950, Dr. Garnett Cheney published an article entitled “Rapid Healing of Peptic Ulcers in Patients Receiving Fresh Cabbage Juice” . For whatever reason it was widely ignored by the medical community. In 1952 and 1955 two subsequent studies (one interestingly conducted on inmates of San Quinton Prison) backed Dr. Cheney’s findings. What Dr. Cheney and subsequent researchers concluded can be summed up in the following extract from Dr. Garnett’s article: “The average crater healing time for seven of these patients who had duodenal ulcer was only 10.4 days, while the average time as reported in the literature, in 62 patients treated by standard therapy, was 37 days… The average crater healing time for six patients with gastric ulcer treated with cabbage juice was only 7.3 days, compared with 42 days, as reported in the literature, for six patients treated by standard therapy.”
Dr. Cheney credited the success of cabbage juice to the presence of the amino acid S-methylmethionine (which he called Vitamin U). Patients in the study consumed 1 quart of raw cabbage juice per day.
Additionally, raw Cabbage Juice alkalinizes the body, stimulates the immune system, kills bacteria and viruses, heals ulcers, prevents cancer
Here is how how you can make 1 quart of cabbage juice per day!
Fresh Cabbage Juice (1qt)
- Boil water
- dice 9 cups of raw cabbage
- Add along with 4 1/2 cups of boiling water to a blender
- pour into a air tight jar or container (cover the jar or container with plastic wrap to ensure it is air tight)
- allow to sit at room temperature for 3 days (try to keep it at 72°f +/- ten degrees)
- Chill and serve
The above recipe makes a little more than a quart, this is on purpose as you will need to save the last half cup or so make the next batch:
Second Batch +
Now that you have made one batch, the subsequent batches will only need 1 day to ferment as long as you add at least a half cup from the previous batch, etc.
- repeat steps 1-5
- add 1/2 cup or more of the left over previous batch to the new batch before you ferment it.
- allow batch 2 to sit at room temperature for 24 hours
now batch 2 is ready for consumption and repeat for batch 3, etc.
