Have you sometimes experienced a burning feeling in your stomach? Like literally feeling like your belly is on fire or like a peppery sensation on an exposed wound? This pain is often worse when you have been skipping meals or feeling hungry?. It very likely is a gastric ulcer. Gastric ulcers are a relatively common medical issue. Around 10% of Malaysian will suffer from gastric ulcers at some point in their lives. Gastric ulcers can be very inconvenient, if not a debilitating illness, with a considerable impact on productivity and quality of life.

Gastric Ulcers Are Sores In The Lining Of The Stomach

The stomach is a digestive factory. It has to produce several acidic secretions to aid the digestion of food. To protect the inner wall of the stomach, the mucosa, as it is called, the stomach has an epithelial lining, in addition to the production of mucus. This way, the stomach can carry out its digestive functions without damage to its walls. However, sometimes, there may be literal cracks in this excellent arrangement. A part of the stomach’s lining may be destroyed, causing an open sore that exposes the inner walls of the stomach. When this happens, the acidic substances secreted by the stomach can irritate the walls of the stomach, causing pain that feels like a burning or peppery sensation.

Several Different Factors Can Cause These Sores

Gastric ulcers can result from epithelial injury caused by several factors. The most common of these is an infection by helicobacter pylori. Other causes may involve the use of certain drugs such as NSAIDs like Ibuprofen. A rare cause is Zollinger Ellison syndrome, where excessive growth of the gastric glands results in an overproduction of hydrochloric acid.

How To Prevent Gastric Ulcers

With gastric ulcers, there are many ways to go about its prevention. Some of these are natural methods. These include:

Dietary Modification And Making Healthy Lifestyle Choices

While spicy food and alcohol do not cause gastric ulcers, they can often worsen them. So you should restrict their intake to low levels. Also, cut out on smoking because this bad habit is a toxic risk to the linings of the stomach and may make the healing of ulcers more difficult. When you live healthily, you have a better chance of preventing and recovering from gastric ulcers.

Use Of Dietary Supplements

Dietary supplements can help the stomach stay healthier. They can also provide extra nutrients and enzymes that help the regeneration of the stomach lining and protection from gastric ulcers. An excellent supplement choice for this purpose is the Shiruto vitamin supplement.

Cut Down On The Use Of NSAIDs

NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, and some other common painkillers are often used indiscriminately. Their chronic use can be cytotoxic for the cells of the stomach, thereby predisposing one to cancers. Therefore, you should ensure that you do not use them indiscriminately over a long period. If you have to use painkillers over an extended period, you should discuss with your doctor the best and safest options for you.


Gastric ulcer is a prevalent disorder that can cause several problems for affected individuals. Therefore, it is essential to be aware of its symptoms and predisposing factors to be better able to prevent it.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
