Stop ulcers and other stomach problems with an inexpensive spice
If you suffer from stomach disease, especially ulcers, you know that H. pylori bacteria might be the culprit. Modern medicine uses combinations of antibiotics to fight this germ. But antibiotics kill good bacteria along with the bad, which can cause unwanted side effects.
I’ve found that a cocktail of supplements can cure almost 100% of these cases. And one spice in particular can work miracles. Now a study from India confirms what I’ve found in my clinic.
This study came from the Indian equivalent of our National Institutes of Health. So it carries merit. In the study on mice, researchers wanted to know if the spice curcumin could eradicate H. pylori. They found that it was “highly effective” in killing the bacteria in their stomachs. Additionally, it greatly helped to repair their stomach cells from the carnage brought by the germ. The researchers said that curcumin was of “immense” therapeutic value against these devastating bacteria.
Curcumin is on my list of super nutrients. You know that I don’t cook much, but when I do, curry powder is involved almost all the time. It’s a great way to improve the taste of your food and reap the health benefits.

In addition to adding it to your diet, there are some great curcumin products on the market. Advanced Bionutritionals Reduloxin has curcumin as its first ingredient and delivers about 15 mg of the Meriva curcuminoids (Meriva is about 29 times better absorbed than the average curcumin). It also includes a blend of other highly effective herbs. This powerful blend not only fights the bacteria, but also helps reduce inflammation in your stomach (and elsewhere in your body). This greatly encourages the healing process.
If you’re specifically looking for more curcumin, consider Curamed. It contains 500 mg curcuminoids per capsule. It’s widely available online and at many health food stores. If you have any unresolved gastric problems, this would be a rather inexpensive and very safe home treatment to try out for relief.
