The seeds of the fenugreek plant or its leaves are useful in getting rid of ulcers. The best way to have them would be to soak a tablespoon of seeds in a glass of water overnight and drink it the next morning. You can buy both leaves as well as seeds at an Indian grocery store quite easily and cheaply. The vernacular name for fenugreek is methi. If you cannot find fresh leaves or seeds of fenugreek, you can also take it in pill form. This will work slower, but will always show results. You will have to stop eating fried and spicy food, alcohol, carbonated and caffeinated drinks and citrus fruits. All of these will give you acidity and aggravate your ulcers as well.
