How I Got Cured Of Gastric Ulcer

The look of a gastric ulcer
The look of a gastric ulcer

How it all began

I hate to remember the ordeal, but I can’t stop remembering my ordeal of being a Gastric Ulcer patient. If you have never been a victim of one health complication or the other, believe me you are blessed, though all of us are blessed anyway. I am pretty sure you don’t ever want to experience any of those; ulcer, migraine, leukemia, cancer, arthritis, toothache, just to name but a few.

It all began in late 2003 If not early 2004, after I gained admission into the higher institution to study mechanical engineering. Obviously, every sickness or disease in life is triggered by a certain condition or factor, mine was triggered by hunger resulting from starving to read- don’t ever make this mistake, and if you are a parent, warn your children not to starve for any reason; be it in the name of crazy desire to shed weight or something else, advise them to eat always, but not to overfeed.

Note: hunger or starving is not actually the major cause of gastric ulcer, but it is one of the trigger factors, avoid it.

Before I gained admission, I was already preparing to graduate with the best result, I cultivated this definite desire for greatness right from the high school, and I succeeded but failed health-wise. I was so eager to make it as the best student, eager not to fail, eager not to lose my wisdom, so I ended up reading all day and night and most times forgot to eat something, and if I did remembered, I had rush to a soft drink joint and get a bottle of Fanta and a snack, off I go again. This continued until my whole system was down and crying, but I ignored it since I was still able to walk and read; never ignore your body’s red light signs.

Developing Gastric Ulcer

What actually causes gastric ulcer?

I am going to be a bit more medical and scientific in this regard, but everything you are about to read here, are well researched and are also proved, I am sure they will guide you, so feel free to read without doubts or unbelief. Generally, gastric ulcer results from the imbalanced secretion of stomach enzymes and acids as well as the components released in the mucosal lining of the stomach.

Gastric Ulcers results when there is an imbalance between the quantity of stomach acid the body is secreting and an enzyme called Pepsin and the natural defenses of the stomach lining (called mucosal). Deep down the gastric system, there is a spiral shaped bacteria living in the acid environment of the stomach (Heliobacter Pylori Bacterium) which can also cause gastric ulcers. We cannot also divorce physical stress, starvation and insufficiencies as factors that can lead to the development of gastric ulcer in a person.

It is noteworthy to know that gastric ulcer is not caused by consuming spicy food, stress, or alcohol, it is caused by a bacterium called Helobacter pylori, but over a billion number of people globally are carrying this bacteria in their body system, because it is transmitted through food, drink, or contact with someone infected. So, many of us have these bacteria, and if you combine it with spicy food and stress you have gastric ulcer! Recent studies have also shown that anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen and aspirin) seriously contribute to the gastric ulcer's evolution.


The Outcome of my Food Starvation

I didn’t know that my continuous food starvation and inconsistent eating has caused a great damage to my inner body, right in the gastric system. According to the medical description, my intestine system was finding it difficult to get something to crush or digest, so it went ahead crushing itself: the fats, the flesh, etc. the final outcome was a severe wound in my gastric system, which can be medically termed, gastric ulcer.

Where the journey began

It all started at the school library where I went to carry out some research on a term paper; it first started with a kink, then stomach uproar, gradually into pinching pain, in less than five minutes, I was already bending over, with my hands on my belly, so I managed to push myself to the hostel. Before I knew myself, I was already purging and vomiting at the same time. It looked so complicated i confused it with diarrhea until I was rushed to the emergency room of the school hospital, and the doctor prescribed some drugs which seemed to calm the situation down a bit: mixed mag (I guess a magnesium or so liquid drug)  and liquid milk, so I asked the nurse why all these, she then told me that I should pray this shouldn’t be ulcer, my heart skipped.

What are the symptoms of a gastric ulcer?

There is a big difference between a gastric ulcer symptoms and that of a duodenal ulcer, they seem to be running in an opposite direction, so don’t miss-interpret them. Below are some of the signs you would experience if suffering from a gastric ulcer, seek for immediate remedy before it gets severe and more difficult to treat or cure (not really through conventional modern medicine).

-          Abdominal pain is usually the most common symptom that an ulcer may be present

-          Indigestion and heartburn, or acid reflux

-          Gastric ulcers generally cause a dull aching pain, often right after eating.

-          Making a meal can often cause an increase in pain

-          Eating will not relieve pain as is the case with other types of ulcers

-          Nagging pain in the upper abdomen area below your breastbone

-          Experiences of nausea

-          A noticeable loss of appetite

-          Unplanned weight loss

-          Another less common symptom of a gastric ulcer is that about 3 in every 10 people are woken up at night by dull ulcer pains – this usually happens 3- 4 hours after eating.  

What doctors will never tell an ulcer patient
What doctors will never tell an ulcer patient

What Doctors will Never Tell An Ulcer Patient

1. Medical Doctors simply have no options other than antibiotics:no medical doctor will tell you that he has no lasting solution for your ulcer condition when it comes to prescribing treatments for ulcers caused by H. pylori infections. The prescription will almost always be either a Triple or Quadruple Therapy.

2. H. pylori is becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatments. It is widely publicized that drug therapies have an averagefailure rate of up to 70% in the treatment of H. pylori infections.

3. Many patients have been on more than 4 courses of the same antibiotic treatment,and they still have stomach ulcers and H. pylori. I have even heard of patients who have taken 8 consecutive Triple Therapy treatments, and they are still infected.

4.Majority of those suffering from this type of ulcer, are infected with Candida Albicans, and they don't even know about it!Candida Overgrowth is alife threatening infection that is extremely difficult to treat. The last thing you want to take if you have Candida is any form of antibiotics...

5. Gastric ulcer of the H. pylori type, has no treatment or cure using conventional medicine


I lived with this ailment for two to three years without finding a complete treatment, my family doctor became exhausted with my repeated attack and consultation, and I myself lost hope of getting a treatment, so I was bracing up to live with it, but I was saved.

My savior came through a family friend, please I encourage you to always share your problem with people, a problem shared, is half solved, don’t die in silence. I said this because I got my cure through a family friend whom my mom shared my ordeal with, and she suggested a local therapy or what I may call, natural treatment using fruit.

Slice it into small portions or slices and pour into a clean water container (2 or 3 liter is okay)

Fill the container with clean drinkable water, but not to brim and cover with the cork or cover

Store in a cool dry place for 2 days

After the 2 days period, shake the container and its content, then pour a full tumbler and drink

Dosage: take it morning and night until the whole content is finished

Watch out for an improvement in attacks and symptoms, repeat this if symptoms persist.

This is quit real and a reliable way of eliminating gastric ulcer from the system. I am on it now ! Give it a shot! Africa, the mother land of medicine.

accofranco 5 years ago from L Island Author

@Gozman, actually, i have written something like this last two years, and it has helped many ulcer patients who also came back to testify of their cure...i will post the link to the article later for you to also go through. but this very article was written basically for you, as my own token of care for your ulcer condition, just have faith and patience, it will depart soonest, and you must follow the therapy as prescribed. please feel free to come back and testify for more and better improvements as a way of encouraging other patients not to lose faith or hope.

another thing that made me to write this article again but in a modified and improved manner, is to assist many readers of the previous article asking lots of questions like: what is a plantain? how many of it do i need? should i pour away the mixture after two days (no, finish it following the dosage i prescribed, it is not harmful)? can i repeat the therapy? (yes), etc. so i asnwered all those questions in this new article and i also provided images or pictures to guide those that don't know what a plantain is. i wish you all a quick recovery, using Gozman my good friend as a point of contact to reach you all in my daily prayers.

thank you Gozman for reading and finding time to drop a word of encouragement, please feel free to recommend people to read the article, and you can equally share it on your facebook status, lets join hands and make this world a safer, healthier place for all!

Please i want to first apologize for late response to your comments, i am so so sorry for that, i have been so busy with my holiday, and just recently, i lost my most beloved illustrious brother in an auto crash on the 4th of January, and coupled with the issue of strike in my country, i have not found time to respond to your comments, please bear with me, i am sorry. Thank you.

@Agnes Momoh, it will, have faith and make sure you go for a good medical test before embarking on the remedy. Good luck dear, and please pass the info along as you go. Wishing you a fast recovery.

@accofranco great efforts I will say, may God reward you for all your in put to serve others.

I must say, I treated myself with plantain remedy (naija plantain) 10 years ago and it worked. However, towards the end of last year and up till now I got myself back into it (ulcer), Probably irregular eating may be the culprit.

I just got prepared the old remedy again yesterday hopefully will start using tomorrow or a day after. I will keep you posted.

I hope all is going well with you in Naija.

This sounds like excellent advice accofranco! Unfortunately as I live in an urban area I am unable to get a hold of unripe fruits where I am. Any ideas on how I could source these or other suggestions? I've heard of mastic gum and manuka honey here in Australia can be effective, but have yet to try them.

Can this treatment be given to a child of six years diagnosed with the ulcer?

accofranco profile image

accofranco 4 years ago from L Island Author

@All, I am very sorry for my late response, its because of my beloved brother that I lost early this year in a car accident, and ever since his sudden death, I have been so busy combining his business with mine, just to put things in order...please do bear with me.

@Mary K, I have not tried the therapy on other types of ulcers, so I wouldn't recommend or disprove the possibility. Thanks dear.

@Charles O, nope, don't include the seeds, that one cures another disease entirely, so throw them away.

@Nkechi, if he is a medical student, he should be able to understand the mechanism better, just refer him to read the article himself. good luck and I wish him a fast recovery.

@infonolan, I strongly believe that plantain can be found in a local market in Australia. but if you can't find it still, make an inquiry if such item can be sent via courier to your country, and then get back to me, I would try and get one across to you. thanks for the ther tip you dropped, thanks and cheers, glad you found it useful.

@Kku, yes go ahead, there's no harm associated with it yet. Good luck and thanks for stopping by.

Hi, Thanks for your natural concussion. My mom also told me about it to heal gastric but never try. Can this treatment heal intestine ulcer too. I was going thro hell two years ago and knows actually the agony of pain. It started with esphogus pain, went to see a gastro doctor and he insisted I do the endoscopy and colonscopy. After the scopy, it became worst, I have severed pain in the throat (aspogus), pain the stomach, bouts of diarrhea, acid reflux, food has to be mashed. The gastro doctor took few places of my stomach lining for biopsy too and found nothing wrong. Yet after the scope things got worsen. Went to several doctors, thousands of dollars gone into their pockets yet cant find anything wrong. After 6 months, pain got worsen, day and day living in hell,.. finally, pray to GOD and I got to go Singapore see another doctor, did the scope found two big polys, taken out, then laser to close the wounds. After this 3 weeks of strong antibiotic, also found to have heli. bacteria. Now, every now and then have stomach pain, intestine bloating, etc., ANy idea what to eat to eliminate the stomach bloating and intestine spasm. Thanks.

accofranco 4 years ago from L Island Author

@sola, No you don't need to sieve it to take it, just shake and take.

@Gowek, At least one hour should be okay. You are welcome, I am glad and praying for you guys quick healing.

@Janeol, try taking antacid tabs or anything that helps your stomach to maintain low acid level...I don't know if you will be able to find some local remedies we have here that I will recommend....try your local herb store.

Thanks to you all for stopping by to ask one or two questions, I wish you all a quick healing!

Can you please tell me if the papaya will be with the skin or have to peel it off? and how much water for this treatment? Thanks

accofranco profile image

accofranco 4 years ago from L Island Author

@Geila Rose, I was trying to contact my friend who used it to cure his ulcer, but his line wasn't going through, but from my own understanding, it should be without the skin...and I also learnt the ripe one works too...papaya is good in the treatment of ulcer because papaya initiates a thickening of the natural stomach lining which provides protection against excess acid. It both gives damaged tissues a chance to heal, and helps prevent new ulcers...but the one I used myself is unripe plantain...

Geila Rose 4 years ago

Thank you!! I'm a nutritionist and have clients with gastritis and ulcers. Do you think the plantain treatment will also work for gastritis??

guy you hv given morethan life to many. i pray God should double your life time for this selfless service. i am an ulcer patient though not sure of the type. i tried unripe plantain b4 reading post but the moment the pains relieve i stop and was not careful about my meal. i fasted many times for job and immediately after the job the ulcer is back with heavy weight that i could not even enjoy myself. with this post i will now give the plantain another try and i blive it has work for me already. more greeze to ur elbow. my advice to other readers is that if wealth is lost nothing is gone but if health is lost all is gone. my own started in the quest of God CGPA which i got but not enjoying it noow but praise God for making plantain.

Peel off the bark and wash the left over

Slice it into small portions or slices and pour into a clean water container (2 or 3 liter is okay)

Hi.. For the first remedy using unripe bananas I dont understand the above steps like we peel off the peels and wash what? And what do we slice the peels or the edible flesh?

I have been having acid problems for almost a year now, I feel blotted all the time and sometimes its actually painful I have to massage my belly and also I feel nauseated sometimes and heartburn as well as vibrations in the stomach. And the doctors say I have acids, some say acid reflux, some say non ulcer dysperpsia or functional dysperpsia but I guess some of the sympotoms can be eliminated by your remedy. I hope it works for me too because I have really stopped going to the doctors in my country and thinking of going overseas to look for specialist doctors

accofranco profile image

accofranco 2 years ago from L Island Author

@tiara, what that means is this: peel of the bark - it means you should remove the green bark of the unripe plantain (not banana). You may forget to wash it....slice into small portions means: slice the edible part into small slices so it can enter a water container, and for easy fermentation.

I think I have answered your question? I have a book for this...check above or towards the end of this article, you will see a blue text that says: "cure your ulcer naturally" click on it and order a copy of the book, it will help you to understand everything you need to do, how to do it and some other additional information to help you cure your ulcer.

Wishing you quick healing.

@santiago, I didn't try paw-paw, and I haven't tried using it to treat stomach ulcer, but few people I know have tried it and it worked for them its possible that it can also treat yours, but I recommend unripe plantain concussion, the one I tried myself.

@Shuresh, yes it is not poisonous, except you have allergy! Please before you start taking the concussion, consult your local physician/doctor to know if you are allergic to it. Thanks, I wish you all speedy recovery.

Paw paw concussion how many days can be consumed. It is empty stomach or after food.

accofranco profile image

accofranco 22 months ago from L Island Author

@Aneesh and Sheena, Please I will recomned the unripe plantain remedy more. Peel the plantain and throw away the green bark, then grind the inner edible part and pour into a clean container, pour water and allow for 2 - 3 days to ferment, and then take one tumbler morning and night till mixture finishes. I didn't use the paw-paw remedy so I can't bet on it, though I learnt from friends that it worked for them.

Hi Frank,

How does it work and is it only effective at healing the gut or is it also effective at killing bacteria, specifically H.pylori?. When do I drink it, before or after meals and how much do I take daily?. Thank you.

accofranco profile image

accofranco 22 months ago from L Island Author

@Nate, I think it weakens the bacteria and helps the wounded gut to heal. Drink in between in before meals, twice daily. Grind or blend the plantain before pouring into a clean container and then add clean water. It quickens the fermentation process and makes it more easy to drink. Hope this helps.

Nate 22 months ago

Thank you Frank. Do I need to refrigerate it?. I might not be able to find plantains where I am, can I substitute with green bananas?. I am really hoping and praying this can help me, I have had H.pylori in the past and I have many other health issues but my ulcers have become much worse lately. Is there a specific diet one needs to follow?.

accofranco profile image

accofranco 22 months ago from L Island Author

@Nate, no need of refrigerating it...and pls don't substitute with green bananas because it doesn't have the same herbal contents. Try and find plantain. There are things you must avoid eating as an ulcer can google it online or seek professional advice from a dietitian. Wish you quick recovery.

Nate 22 months ago

Thank you Frank. I will keep you updated on my progress.

Nate 22 months ago

Thanks Frank. I finally found some plantains, can I just put the plantains in a blender with water and blend it up that way?. What if I react negatively to plantains like I do with bananas, or does the fermenting process fix this and how do you know when it's ready to use?. I just want to be sure to do things right and not just guessing everything. Thank you.

@Nate, sorry for my late response. Nate, read my original article carefully and you will see instructions on how to prepare and take the concussion. I was detailed enough and answered all these questions you are asking me, please find time and go through my original article on this again. and if you want further information, get a copy of the book I published on amazon....the link is up there in my original article. I hope this answered your question and how are you getting on now?

Regarding the reaction question, yes, if you have allergy and allergic to plantain mixture, that means it will have some negative reaction in your body ask your doctor first and know that things your body system is allergic to.

Thanks for stopping by

After it is fermented do you just drink the liquid or eat plantain also?

@sue, best practice is to blend the unripe plantain after peeling off the green bark and then pour into a container for fermentation to take place and drink all contents together. I hope this answered your question? Wishing you quick healing.

Just wanted to know can i have that mixture with the medication going on??

Just diagnosed with stomach ulcer after an endoscopy. I actually have more pain and now burning sensation in my stomach after the procedure which included a biopsy. Not sure if there is wound from the biopsy site but plan to call my Doc. I will try the remedy. When you say container? Like a bottle or bowl with cover. Thank you. I will be purchasing your book on amazon.

@syed, it is never advisable to combine herbal remedy with convectional drugs...please discontinue one and try the other after some days or weeks. That will also help you know which of the treatments worked for you. Hope this answered your question?

@Nina, not a bottle...a clean plastic water container with cover. You can find a clear image of what to use in the ebook. Hope I answered your question? Thanks for stopping by, wishing you guys quick healing.

barr hussein owoade 17 months ago

please sir will it work for erosive gastritis?

moses 17 months ago

I am staying in namibia and I had this ulcer gastric and is burning since I was 8years, I just cut slice of th unriped paw paw because all people I have asked unriped plantain fruits they don, t even know it. What other name plantain fruits refered to because the problem is people don, t know it here in Namibia? I real appreciate for such vital information it is real life saving, praise who made such fruits.

moses 17 months ago

Pls accofraco, in my country there is no plantain but there is banana, can I use unriped banana? And shall I close the 2litre of water or leave it open?

Elizabeth 16 months ago

so u mean if u have just cut the plantain into small pieces when drinking the contents u need to chew and swallow then together? How many bottles did u take for ur ulcer to heal?

accofranco profile image

accofranco 16 months ago from L Island Author

@barr hussein, it should work for gastritis, I don't know about erosive stage...because gastritis is an early stage of gastric ulcer.

@Moses, why not google the name- "unripe plantain fruit"...its green in color. I also attached picture in the article.

@Elizabeth, I finished the first 2 litres, prepared it again after a week, and lastly once. So I took 6 litres in all but at an interval, and the symptoms disappeared.

There is an improvement on how to prepare the herbal remedy. You can peel the plantain after cutting the slices, then dry them under sun and grind to powder. Mix with natural honey and take with teaspoon, 3 table spoon morning and night before each meal.

Combine it with cabbage juice and also try yoghurt, it helps.

This will sure help.

accofranco 16 months ago from L Island Author

@Aye, yes, try it...I believe it will. There is no harm in trial.

chioma 14 months ago

Hello acco...please I am a bit confused here..should I drink the grated unripe plantain because I grated mine.... with the water or jus filter the water alone and then drink?coz I just started and I intend to start my dose in a couple of days.thanks and God bless

accofranco profile image

accofranco 14 months ago from L Island Author

@sergio and SROTC, yes it should be able to treat duodenal ulcer.

Another way to prepare this unripe plantain remedy which some fans have tried and it worked for them too is using honey.

Get the recommended quantity of unripe plantain, say 2 mature but unripe plantain fruits.

Peel the bark off, sun dry or find a way to dry it naturally for some days or weeks. Grind or grate the dried inner portion into granules. Mix with half liter of pure natural honey.

Take 2 teaspoon thrice daily before meals.

This works very fast. Combine this remedy with cabbage juice and avoid the trigger factors.

@Chioma, drink with the grated content, don't filter.

Please there is no need refrigerating it; store at room temperature for effective use.

@OLUSEGUN, I say a big AMEN to your prayer; may God the healer of all heal you and others suffering from this painful illness soonest. May God use this remedy as a point of contact to heal you all. Remain blessed.

Thank you for your support on how to use plantain therapy to cure gastric ulcer. I have been suffering from gastric ulcer with acid reflux that cause me dizziness since May 2015. At this time i was writing my dissertation in the university. Since then i got throat, head and stomach pain with burning around my body especially my left side. I was placed on esomeprazole and antibiotics for one month but have done with antibiotics, still on esomeprazole. I want to know if the plantain therapy will interfer with esomeprazole or both can be taking.

2 unripe plantain to 1 liter of natural honey should be fine.

accofranco 5 months ago from L Island Author

Eat light food....drink natural yogurt, it helps...avoid crispy foods, and don't eat late....drink enough water daily....make water drinking a routine practice through the day even when you are not that thirsty.
