My dad was born and raised in Idaho and has had many Indian friends. One time he had an ulcer in which caused a great deal of pain, as one who has an ulcer would know. On old Indian chief had told him this remedy in which cured my his ulcer! Here is the remedy. Let me know if it works for you! Now it's a bit untasty but aren't most remedies? lol About a shot glass of pure apple cider vinegar, not distilled but pure apple cider vinegar into a regular sized glass, fill the rest with water and drink it. Do this about 2 times a day for about 2 weeks. In 3 days you'll feel a difference and in 2 weeks, you should be cured. Hey! It worked for my dad!

I presume we are talking about a stomach ulcer here. Apple cider vinegar is well known for curing all sorts of things - try googling it to find out maybe it works because it is acidic. maybe it causes the stomach to produce less acid because there is already acid there from the vinegar which has been drunk. I have just lately started to sip a small spoonful of this vinegar every morning before breakfast. It is quite refreshing, takes the bad taste out of your mouth and wakes you up. I also find I eat less

Great point about eating less.. I too find it cuts my Hunger quickly although I dont know how refreshing it is for me

That's interesting snugasabug. I did not know that. I guess it's why vinegar has been around for a long time but some how the remedy parts about it got lost in the shuffle over the years. Thanks for sharing! Flower, I don't see how either one of you can drink it just to do it for I'd gag but if it suits you, I'd say, HELP YOURSELF! lol

well I don't actually drink it - just sip a little off a spoon

I don't see why it would'nt be safe for it's a natural thing and she's almost an adult, young yes but closer to an adult than a child. My dad said you probably can find the pure apple cider vinegar at a health food store. Good luck in getting her to drink the mixture.

I've heard about that cure before. But I think I would end up praying to the porcelain throne too much for it to do any good. LOL! Hopefully this will be a big help to others. Thanks for posting it hon.

I say the same thing however depending on how much pain I was in if I were to have one then I might change my mind and drink the mixture. That's not to say that I wouldn't hold my nose and gag!! lol

Not only will it cure the ulcer it will cure reflux, lower blood sugar and stop heartburn. I have been using this for years. It also will make your skin softer and more wrinkle free. It has also been known to cure kidney and urinary tract infections. My uncle married an Indian chief's daughter and she taught us a lot of good ways to stay healthy using homemade remedies. Have a healthy day Happy Holidays

That's really interesting Kowgirl, thanks for sharing!! Indian's have a wonderful knowledge of the herbs and such that do wonders to the human body. Thanks to them they've passed on the knowledge so it's not totally lost in the shuffle. Happy Holidays to you too!

I am no expert on ulcers. But I believe apple cider vinegar is great for many conditions, so I can see that this cure may well be valid. But I dont think I could drink it though.

You would if you were in that kind of pain. I thought I couldn't either but if I were in the kind of pain that my dad describes then I think I would but it would be one heck of a gagging way of getting it down and then I'd have to have a chaser right behind it. lol

Since they have learned that ulcers are an infection I can see why this works.

Is it an infection? I thought it was a hole or sore in the stomach lining. What ever it is, my dad says it works really good whereas the doctors say there's no cure. Yeah right, no cure for them to make money off of.

Sometimes the old ways are the best ways. Pure organic apple cider vinegar is great for Acid reflux, ulcers any type of digesitive ailment. Also many people tell me that it helps with arthritis and in balancing the ph of the human body since it becomes alkiline once it is ingested. My napropath and my accupuncturist both believe in its healing powers..... Personally I take it if I feel like I'm getting a cold.... 2 teapspoons (or a shotglass) in about 9 ounces of hot water (not boiling) and a touch of Honey or Stevia to help it taste better....??? Three times a day if I can.

Oh yeah I've heard of it balancing the ph of the human body but forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me! I agree though about the old remedies are better because everything on this earth is here for a reason just that the reasons have gotten lost over the years but thanks to herbalists keeping track of it all we still can figure it out.
