    5 Foods You Must Avoid If You Have Stomach Ulcer

    Stomach Ulcer

    Are you having a stomach ulcer and you are trying to manage it or heal it? Ulcer happens when painful sore forms around the stomach which happen when the thick layer of mucus meant to protect the stomach digestive juices are reduced in which case; the digestive acids eat away the tissues lining the stomach!

    For an ulcer patient, some foods are best avoided so as not to keep irritating the already sore area:

    1. Spicy Seasonings/Foods

    Spicy foods irritate the lining of the stomach and by extension the sore area. Spicy foods are also known to make ulcer symptoms worse in some cases.

    2. Coffee

    Coffee doesn’t cause ulcers but irritates them. The caffeine present in coffee erodes the already sore area (ulcer) making it worse and if the goal is to heal the ulcer, it is best to stay away from coffee or reduce taking it to the barest minimum.

    3. Alcohol

    An ulcer patient should avoid alcohol/alcoholic beverages as a whole. Alcohol intake increases the stomach’s acid level making the ulcer worse and healing almost impossible.

    4. Red Meat

    Ulcer patients (especially peptic) should stay away from red meat! Red meat takes longer to digest making acid levels in the stomach rise which irritates the area and worsens the symptoms. This can be replaced with chicken, turkey, and other lean proteins.

    5. Refined Foods

    Pasta, white bread sugar, and more processed foods should be replaced with leafy greens and vegetables, antioxidants loaded fruits with lots of water.
