Gastric Disorders

Stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers are two common types of peptic ulcers. While stomach ulcers are evenly distributed between men and women, duodenal ulcers tend to affect four times as many men as women. However, women may be at a higher risk for developing ulcers after menopause due to decreased levels of estrogen, which has a protective effect.

What are Stomach Ulcers?

Stomach ulcers are small raw areas on the walls of the stomach where the protective mucus coating has eroded, often due to damage from acidic gastric juices. A bacterium is usually found in individuals with gastric ulcers, but it is only present in 40% of healthy stomachs. The bacterium can be identified through a breath test. Stomach ulcers can be caused by a variety of factors, including overproduction of acid, inadequate mucus production, or regurgitation of bile from the duodenum. Other risk factors include heavy smoking or drinking, abnormal eating habits, food allergies, mild stress, recurrent gastritis, and certain medications such as aspirin, steroids, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Symptoms of stomach ulcers may include a gnawing or burning pain in the chest or upper abdomen that can last for 1-2 hours, as well as indigestion and nausea or vomiting. Pain may or may not coincide with eating. Older individuals, those with low incomes, and individuals with blood group A are at a higher risk of developing stomach ulcers. If left untreated, ulcers can lead to loss of appetite and weight, pyloric stenosis, and stomach cancer. While bleeding stomach ulcers are relatively rare, they can cause rapid blood loss, shock, and anemia.

What are Duodenal Ulcers?

Duodenal ulcers are small raw areas in the lining of the duodenum caused by acid from the stomach. These ulcers are typically smaller than stomach ulcers and may cause gnawing upper abdominal pain 3-4 hours after eating. Risk factors for duodenal ulcers include heavy smoking, aspirin, steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and overproduction of stomach acid. Blood group O individuals and those with emphysema or alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver are also at a higher risk for developing duodenal ulcers. Complications of duodenal ulcers include bleeding, anemia, pyloric stenosis, and peritonitis (infection of the abdominal cavity if the ulcers perforate the duodenal wall).

The Role of Homeopathy in Treating Gastric Ulcers – Insights from Dr. Harshad Raval, MD Homeopathy

Gastric ulcers can be a painful and debilitating condition that affects many people around the world. While conventional medicine offers various treatments, there is a growing interest in homeopathic remedies for the management of gastric ulcers. In this article, we’ll explore the role of homeopathy in treating gastric ulcers and gain insights from Dr. Harshad Raval, MD Homeopathy, a renowned homeopath with over 30 years of experience.

Understanding Gastric Ulcers

Gastric ulcers are a common medical condition that affects the stomach lining. They are often caused by the overproduction of stomach acid or a bacterial infection known as Helicobacter pylori. Gastric ulcers can cause symptoms like burning pain, indigestion, nausea, and vomiting. While conventional treatments for gastric ulcers include antacids, antibiotics, and proton pump inhibitors, many people are turning to alternative therapies like homeopathy for relief.

The Role of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on treating the individual as a whole, rather than just the specific condition. It involves the use of highly diluted natural substances, which are thought to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Homeopathy has been used for the management of various medical conditions, including gastric ulcers, with promising results.

According to Dr. Harshad Raval, MD Homeopathy, the role of homeopathy in treating gastric ulcers is to restore balance to the body’s systems and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. Homeopathic remedies are chosen based on the individual’s unique symptoms, and the underlying causes of the condition. Dr. Raval emphasizes the importance of a thorough consultation with a qualified homeopath to ensure that the right remedy is chosen for each individual.

Homeopathic remedies for gastric ulcers may include Nux vomica, Argentum nitricum, and Carbo vegetabilis, among others. These remedies are believed to help reduce inflammation, soothe the stomach lining, and promote healing. Homeopathic remedies are considered safe and non-toxic, with minimal side effects, making them an attractive alternative to conventional treatments.

I was suffering from Chronic Glomerular Nephritis for 4 years. The albumin in urine was 3+. The creatinine level was fluctuating between 5 and 10. The blood urea was fluctuating between 50 and 80. I was loosing flesh day by day and became weak. I consulted many Urologists. I was given steroids and was finally asked to go on dialysis. Seeing the experience of my other friends who had similar problems, I was reluctant to go for it. In the meantime I decided to try Dr. Harshad Raval MD Homeopathic treatment. With his treatment, the creatinine and urea levels came down drastically. The albumin is now in traces. Creatinine level is 1.9. Blood urea is below 20. All this happened without steroids. The Hb level which had gone down to 6.7% has now reached above 11%. I am feeling much better. The edema on the body has considerably reduced. I don't look pale as before. I feel much energetic and able to work long hours in teaching profession. I am really thankful to DrRaval remedial approach to kidney problems.

I used to have thick and silky hair. Two years back during winter, my hair suddenly started falling in bunches leaving round patches on my scalp. I consulted Dermatologist who diagnosed it to be Alopicia Areata. Application of ointments, subcutaneous injections did not give a permanent hair and the round spots became bigger and bigger. After following Dr. Harshad Raval MD[Hom] treatment, initially very thin golden hair started developing in the bald area. These hair became darker over time. I am growing new hair in other areas too which is giving a richer look. It was a wonderful experience!
