Coconut oil for ulcer? By destroying a wide spectrum of disease-causing organisms, coconut oil helps treat and prevent ulcers, without doing any harm to your body.
Ulcers can occur anywhere along your digestive tract, and in or near your mouth. I remember a time when excessive stress was believed to be the main cause of peptic ulcers.
My mother used to say that stress stimulates gastric acid secretion that burns holes through the lining of an empty stomach causing the ulcers.
Well, it’s now known that a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori causes peptic or stomach ulcers. Gastric ulcers are brought about by bacteria burrowing into the stomach’s wall. Stress may very well still be involved by diminishing resistance to infection.
Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to deal with ulcers. Problem is, antibiotics can lead to other health problems by killing even friendly bacteria.
Coconut oil provides a naturally effective and totally harmless approach. H. pylori, herpes and streptococcus are associated with various types of ulcers, and are all killed by Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) generously found in coconut oil.
Some ulcers that take place in the digestive tract are caused by cancer. Coconut oil possesses cancer-fighting properties as it aids the immune system in seeking out and destroying cancerous cells.
