Ulcer Treatments

The newer medicines that turn off stomach acid are very good for heartburn or ulcers.

For a longer lasting cure a stomach infection caused by a bacteria called H. PYLORI must also be treated.

Doctors reporting in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that 70% of patients treated with both acid blockers and antibiotics for the infection were cured of their ulcers, whereas only 5% treated with acid blockers alone were cured.

Today you don't have to suffer if you have this problem.....see your doctor.
