Digestive disorders affect millions of people each year. These conditions can involve different parts of the gastrointestinal tract, such as the esophagus, stomach, liver, intestines, gallbladder, and pancreas. Some common digestive disorders include gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and peptic ulcers.
Symptoms may include:
Peptic ulcers are common and painful sores that affect the stomach lining or small intestine. The most common cause of stomach ulcers is H. pylori infection, affecting about 44 percent of people worldwide. Long-term use of medicines such as ibuprofen or aspirin can also cause ulcers in the stomach. A common misconception, especially in Hispanic culture, is that stress and spicy foods cause ulcers. However, there is no evidence that this is true. Stress and spicy foods can make present ulcers worse.
Symptoms of peptic ulcers may include:
• Burning stomach pain
• Bloating or belching
• Intolerance of fatty foods
For years, natural ingredients have been used to promote relief from various digestive discomforts.
