When most people think of ulcers, they think of stress. However, modern medical advances point to other issues. Today we explore what ulcers are, and how CHD-FA™ can help internal and external ulcers.
Ulcers that affect the human body occur both internally and externally. Interestingly enough, the first thought that comes to mind when for many people when they hear the word Ulcer is stress. This is because back in the 1980s, doctors and most everyone else thought psychological stress or spicy foods led to ulcers. However, two Australian scientists discovered that the main culprit was in-fact a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori. This discovery eventually won them a Nobel Prize in 2005 , which ushered in an era of using antibiotics to treat ulcers. Today we know that antibiotics are not the cure-all, so how do we treat ulcers in today’s age?
Let’s take a closer look at internal ulcers
Internal ulcers are often described as peptic ulcers. They are mainly caused by a bacterium Heliobacter pylori. Other causes include anti-inflammatory drugs, Chrone’s disease and cirrhosis of the liver. Other conditions that produce similar symptoms to an ulcer include stomach cancer, coronary heart disease, and inflammation of the gallbladder or stomach lining.
An ulcer that is located in the lower oesophagus, stomach or upper part of the small intestine is called a peptic ulcer. An ulcer in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer, and an ulcer located in the upper part of the intestine (duodenum) is called a duodenal ulcer.
Ulcers due to H.pylori are treated with a combination of antibiotics. However, antibiotic resistance is increasing and thus this treatment may not be effective. Resistance passaging tests indicate that resistance to CHD-FA™ by bacteria is highly unlikely, as reported previously.
H.pylori is a gram-negative bacterium that penetrates the mucus lining of the organ that it infects. Another bacterium, Clostridium botulinum, is a gram-positive pathogen that causes botulism and tetanus and also inhabits the intestinal tract. Both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria have been shown to be treated by CHD-FA™. Although Fulvimed has not performed a formal study on H.pyloria, anecdotal evidence from patients taking CHD-Fulvic Acid™ formulated products internally indicate relief from gastrointestinal burning commonly linked to H.pyloria.
As more and more drug-resistant forms of H.pylori emerge , CHD-FA™ offers hope of a possible new treatment for this disease.
What are external ulcers?
The main cause of topical skin ulcers is due to impaired blood circulation. A typical example is a bedsore that develops on the skin of a patient confined to bed for long periods of time. Often these become infected. These include bacterial, fungal and viral infections as well as cancers. Blood disorders and chronic wounds also result in skin ulcers .
Previous articles relating to CHD-FA™ have demonstrated its potential use in bacterial, fungal and viral infection as well as for drug-resistant ulcers formed from wounds. This has been confirmed in work on CHD-Fulvic Acid™ that has been peer-reviewed and published.
Another large category of topical skin ulcers are diabetic foot ulcers that occur in 15 % of diabetic patients in the USA. Of these 14 – 24% of patients require amputation due to treatment being ineffective . We have a long history of improving diabetic foot ulcers with formulated CHD-FA™ products.
We live in exciting times where advances in science are moving at a rapid pace. Yet, we are seeing more and more scientific proof of how a holistic, natural approach to health and wellness is the smarter way forward. Perhaps it is time to relook the treatment of both internal and external ulcers by means of natural, organic CHD-FA™.
