will prilosec help duodenal ulcers and does eating licorice help too?

Natural Remedies for Duodenal Ulcers

Duodenal ulcers are erosions of the tissue forming a hollow lesion in the first portion of the small intestine or the duodenum. These kinds of ulcers can definitely be treated by licorice and prilosec.

Prilosec is definitely a good cure for duodenal ulcer but it is used for short term treatment. The optimal prilosec doage for this kind of ulcer is about 20mg/day for about 4-8 weeks of treatment. At the other end, the results achieved by eating licorice are amazing for curing ulcer.

Licorice in the form of deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL is most effectual for treating duodenal ulcers. It is believed that a dosage of about 3gm/day or 4.5 gm/day can show improved results in about 5-7 days of starting the course. DGL is considered to be the most successful anti-ulcer agent that stimulates the action of protective factors that inhibit the formation of ulcer.

Apart from using prilosec and licorice, there are many other ways that can help you cure duodenal ulcer. Cut down all the allergic foods, eat a well balanced-nutritious diet and eliminate stressors. In case of ulcer bleeding, drink at least one liter/day of Aloe Vera juice. Incorporate a diet rich in fiber as fibers tend to reduce the formation of ulcers.
