A condition like Peptic Ulcer should not be taken casually.
In some cases symptoms can go worse than normal pain and discomfort and may lead to perforation, bleeding and repeating vomiting due to obstruction created by the swelled up sore of the ulcer.
1. De-Stress Your Life
Stress induces and exacerbates the symptoms of this disease so re-plan your everyday schedule so that you complete tasks on time and avoid deadline induced panic, include regular exercise and meditation in it. Ensure that you take at least 8 hours of sleep.
Sleep for at least 7-8 in a day( night time sleep)
Exercise for at least half an hour everyday
2. Watch your diet
Some foods can prevent the healing of ulcers and even increase the acid production in the stomach. These are citrus fruits, high fat dairy products, carbonated beverages, caffeine containing beverages, spicy food. Cut down these products from your diet once for all.
Include green leafy vegetables, soy milk, fruits like bananas, avocados, kiwi, apples and watermelons in your diet. Fishes like tuna, salmon are also good as they are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and it helps to accelerate the healing of the ulcer.
