Proper nutrition can help to reduce the amount of acid secreted, as well as to increase the defense capabilities of the gastric mucosa. Digestive organs are sensitive to changes in ambient temperature, and the arrival of spring is not at all pleasant for people who have ulcer disease and other diseases of the digestive tract. The immediate cause of ulcers is quite simple – stomach secretes more acid and digestive enzymes than its mucous membranes can handle, leading to the creation of sores that burn, pain and sometimes bleeding. What is the basis of the causes of peptic ulcer disease is still controversial, but the fault is largely attributed to the bacterium known as Helicobacter pylori. It is believed that infection releases acid in the stomach, causing ulceration (formation of ulcers).
Stress, improper diet, excessive use of alcohol and smoking may be the cause of more frequent diseases of modern man. As you can influence the formation of ulcers, food and drink we consume in your body can affect the intensity of symptoms in people who are already sick.
Goodbye, milk !
Formerly it was believed that the milk is medicine for stomach ulcers, but this theory long ago discarded. It may create an apparent effect of improving, which takes only twenty minutes, but in the long run can exacerbate the condition. Milk significantly enhances the secretion of gastric acid, which lasts for hours after its use. Beware of hidden sources of these foods – cakes, chocolate and other industrial food. The biggest enemies of your stomach are cured meats and processed meats, fried foods, refined oils and margarine, alcohol, coffee, candy, soft drinks, fatty cheeses, canned foods, ketchup … the list of foods that are not conducive to patients with stomach ulcers is long indeed.
