In this video, we’re going to talk about why gastric ulcers are related to a zinc deficiency.

I wanted to find out what mainstream medicine thought about the relationship between your diet and ulcers. I looked it up, and this is what they said:

“Diet does NOT play an important role in causing or preventing ulcers.”

So what causes ulcers then? They say H. pylori, NSAIDs, stress, and alcohol are the only causes.

This is false information. Your diet does play a vital role in your risk of ulcers. The biggest cause of ulcers is zinc deficiency.

Consuming refined grains and other carbohydrates can deplete zinc in your body because they are rich in phytates.

Many people have ulcers from refined carbs and don’t know they have one. In fact, 1/3 of people who have ulcers don’t have any symptoms.

Thankfully, there are some simple things you can do to increase your zinc.

The first thing you need to do is improve your diet. If you’re new to my channel, check out the links above to learn more about Healthy Keto.

While you’re improving your diet, you can also use zinc supplements until your zinc level is normalized.

The best remedies for ulcers include:

1. Take zinc carnosine

2. Fasting

3. Cabbage juice

4. Chlorophyll (wheatgrass juice powder)
