Stomach Ulcers and RosaceaResearch has indicated that there may be a correlation between the occurrence of stomach ulcers and rosacea. People who suffer from stomach ulcers are more likely to develop symptoms of rosacea and vice versa. Stomach irritation occurs with the ingestion of too many acid foods and drinks such, soft drinks, alcohol, etc. irritate the stomach lining and new cell regeneration of the stomach lining cannot take place as quickly. Continuous irritation of the stomach mucosal lining over a long period of time most definitely leads to stomach ulcers most commonly called peptic ulcers. The digestive gastric acid fluid is most effective in breaking down and digestion of our foods. The gastric acid has a pH of 1.5 to 3.5 normally and is quite proficient.
The stomach and other parts of the gastric system must continue to repair itself to avoid severe problems. When or stomach and gastric system does not repair or regenerate new cells quick enough, our stomach will enter into a short term or a longer period of acid reflux, heartburn, regurgitation, or Gerd (gastroesohageal reflux disease) continues to destroy the stomach lining. The normal stomach bacteria that every human has is helicobacter pylori that overall is very much needed in digestion of our foods. Yet, when the stomach and gastric system is too acidic the helicobacter pylori ‘over grows’ its purpose or need and irritates the mucosal lining of the stomach and overstimulates the immune system causing even more inflammation of the lining of the stomach and small intestines.
Treatment of a Helicobacter pylori stomach condition has been shown to improve the symptoms of rosacea in many patients as when the stomach improves the total human body and obviously the face improves. There are many prescribed medications gained from your medical doctor that can improve the acidity of the stomach. However, the best method follows. Prevention and curing rosacea and the stomach ulcer can be easily improved with more alkaline foods and alkaline drinks as a natural rosacea treatment that helps the stomach lining to regenerate itself in 6 to 8 days. Please read our Rosacea Diet page for the alkaline foods while limiting the acid foods and drinks for quicker healing of both rosacea and the stomach lining.
