Peptic ulcers are open sores on the lining of the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum. They are rarely deadly, but still extremely unpleasant and very common. As the medical saying goes, this condition ”kills few but troubles many.”
Additional Health Benefits Of Vitamin U
Heal Skin Lesions
Did you know that peptic ulcers and skin lesions are very similar in terms of tissue damage? This fact explains why there is evidence suggesting that vitamin U significantly accelerates the healing of wounds when applied directly on the skin. Basically, you can soak clean gauze bandages in fresh cabbage juice and make natural skin-healing dressings this way!
Suppress The Formation Of Fatty Cells
This may come as a surprise, but it’s actually a scientific fact: Vitamin U inhibits the formation of adipocytes (fat cells) on a molecular level. This means that cabbage juice could help to lose and control weight through a whole different mechanism of action that has nothing to do with calories and macronutrients. Although this effect is still to be confirmed in human studies, it still sounds incredibly promising!
Prevent And Heal Damage To The Kidneys
Thanks to its antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and antifibrotic (prevents the formation of scars in the tissues), vitamin U has shown great potential in the prevention and treatment of kidney damage. Antioxidant is especially effective against toxic damage, for example, the one induced by conventional drugs such as valproic acid for the treatment of seizures.
May Help With Depression
Although this last point doesn’t have a lot of scientific data to back it up yet, there is some evidence suggesting that vitamin U effectively soothes depression regardless of its duration and previous treatment. There’s reason to believe this is true because another substance with a VERY similar chemical structure has been confirmed dozens of times to have anti-depressant properties.
How To Make Cabbage Juice For Healing Stomach Ulcers
Cabbage juice on its own actually tastes sweet, but it has a distinct after-taste that may not be pleasant for some.
Father of Juicing, Jay Kordich, worked with Dr Garnett Cheney in giving cabbage juice to prisoners in Alcatraz and every one of them were healed of stomach ulcers.
In the study, only the green cabbage was used.
Watch this video:
- 1 small head of green cabbage
- 3 carrots
- 6 ribs of celery
- 1-inch piece of ginger root
Always use only organic ingredients.
Wash, cut and put these ingredients through your juicer. Using a slow juicer will provide a higher juice yield compared to a centrifugal juicer.
How much cabbage juice to drink for healing of stomach ulcers?
To make cabbage juice to suit your palate, you may also add other vegetables – cucumber, broccoli or a green apple are all good options. Just be sure to use one small head of cabbage that should yield about one liter (or one quart) of juice.
Of the one quart of juice (or more, if you added other vegetables), split them into 5 servings to be drunk throughout the day.
For how long should you drink cabbage juice for healing of stomach ulcers?
For healing of any health conditions, always stop the offending foods for unhindered healing.
As per the study, many patients felt less pain after drinking the juice for two or three days. Depending on the severity of your ulcers, you may drink the juice daily, anything from seven up to 21 days. Then, get checked again.
