Hey lovers hope you enjoyed your weekend? Well, mine was a bit of rough and smooth!

Rough because I had excruciating ulcer pain after eating highly spiced noodles on Friday and I was in pain for hours even after taking medicines (IV, injections and oral).

After being relieved of the pain, I decided to find a natural remedy and cure for ulcer so I found something awesome!

Can you guess? Maybe/Maybe Not!

It is BANANA…. (Did you say huh?)

Yes, Banana… Who doesn’t eat banana? I mean almost everyone worldwide eats banana (it is a common fruit).

BASIC FACTS ABOUT BANANA

Bananas contain high potassium, magnesium & manganese, fiber, vitamins B6 and C, and folate. One medium banana contains about 100 calories. They also contain an enzyme that helps inhibit the growth of the bacteria that causes ulcers (Helicobacter Pylori).

WHY IS IT HELPFUL IN ULCER PREVENTION & TREATMENT?

Bananas are like natural antacid, which helps to protect the lining of the stomach against ulcer development

Leucocyanidin (a component of banana) : increases the thickness of the mucous membrane of the stomach, adding additional protection against potential damage caused by ulcers.

The sitoindosides in dried, unripe bananas increase mucus in the digestive tract, which provides a strong protective coating to help prevent and heal ulcers. Unripe bananas also promote cell growth in the intestinal tract. And bananas contain water-soluble polysaccharides, the same compounds found in the anti-ulcer prescription drug Carafate.

HOW TO USE BANANAS IN TREATMENT OF ULCER

  • EAT RIPE BANANAs: eating at least 3 medium bananas a day helps to relieve ulcer pain
  • EAT BANANAS WITH OTHER NON-ACIDIC FOOD/FRUIT: such as carrots, mango, pawpaw, oatmeal, vegetables etc. Avoid eating acidic foods/fruits such as Orange, grapes, lime, berries etc
  • DRINK BANANA POWDER: Dried Unripe bananas  contain sitoindosides which helps to increase mucus that lines and protect the lining of the  digestive tract, which in turn helps to prevent and heal ulcers powder. To use this, dry unripe banana (maybe in the oven/microwave/sun), then grind, mix with honey and drink (probably 3 times a day).

 

In addition to this, banana also helps in the treatment of other disease which I’ll write about in my next post. Wait for it!

Have a truly beautiful week.

 

PS: Do not rule out going to hospital for proper check up with this information and do not forget that lifestyle modification such as: reduce/total abstinence from alcohol, eating healthy foods regularly also help in the prevention, treatment and cure of stomach ulcers.

I am The Sent Nurse,My real name is Adenike Oladmeji. I refer to myself as “the sent nurse” because I strongly believe I have an assignment not just as a regular nurse but to care for people in their lowest state beyond the physical needs. Also most of my patients fondly call me "the sent nurse"because of the way I have cared for them. The peculiarity of my profession for me is that it has moved beyond being just a nurse that takes care of the body, but one that takes care of the soul/mind and spirit of a human being. I care for the threefold man – the body, the soul/mind and the spirit. I am a very proud and enthusiastic registered nurse, and I currently practice with Roding Healthcare in Lagos, Nigeria. Added to my skill and expertise in taking care of your soul / mind, I am also a certified emotional intelligence, health/wellness and life coach. To further carry my message and passion for both my calling/profession and the three-fold man, I own a blog (www.thesentnurse.com) that focuses on faith and health related topics and discussions. I also speak at events, conferences and seminars, both Nationwide and Internationally.
