Painful Peptic Ulcers Healed With Secret Remedy from the 1940s

A peptic ulcer can be agonizing. It causes sharp abdominal pain, nausea, and loss of appetite. If not properly treated, it could lead to perforation of the stomach lining… even death.

Millions of people suffer from this condition. They take drugs prescribed by their doctors – and then suffer from unpleasant side effects like diarrhea or constipation.

Few are aware that there’s a cure. One that’s all-natural and free of side effects. It was discovered back in the 1940s. Physicians have since been using it as a secret remedy for years. But it’s still unknown to the general public.

Dr. Garnett Cheney was a scientist and professor at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. Up until his find, doctors used over 100 drugs and vitamins to no avail. But then Dr. Cheney found a little-known substance with healing properties that he named “vitamin U.”

Proof That It Works Was Established 60 Years Ago

In one early study, Dr. Cheney treated 13 patients with fresh juice from a leafy vegetable. They drank one glass five times a day. A control group was treated conventionally, with milk, antacids, and a bland diet.

Five of the patients taking the juice had stomach ulcers. Seven had ulcers in the duodenum, and one had ulcers in the small intestine. They all healed quickly – in 7-10 days. By comparison, the control group healed in 37-42 days.

In another study, Cheney worked with 100 patients. The leafy vegetable juice rapidly relieved their symptoms. Eighty-one percent of the patients had relief within one week. More than two-thirds were healed in four days.

Next, he took his therapy to San Quentin Prison. In a 22-day, double-blind study, patients received either the leafy vegetable juice or a placebo. Once again, results “indicated concentrated [leafy vegetable] juice to be effective in healing of peptic ulcer.”

Get Out Your Juicer!

The leafy vegetable is raw cabbage. Its healing power comes from a heat-sensitive molecular compound known as vitamin U. (The U stands for either “ulcer” or “unidentified.”) Despite its name, this substance is not really a vitamin. It’s a derivative of an amino acid called methionine.

If you’re suffering from an ulcer, raw cabbage juice could be your answer. (Cooking destroys the anti-ulcer factor.)

But you can also get vitamin U in supplement form. The recommended dose is 1-2 tablets, three times a day. You can find it online or at a health foods store.

As Dr. Robert Giller, a physician and medical nutritionist, noted, “Raw cabbage juice has a remarkable track record in helping people with peptic ulcers.” He added, “Make it a habit. [But] be sure the cabbage is fresh.”

Dr. Giller recommended a total of one quart of cabbage juice daily. So give it a try. It could mean the end of your severe pain and sleepless nights.

      Thank you for your question, Jeanine. Fresh green cabbage is the best choice. Another source of vitamin U is celery, although cabbage is considered the most effective. You can make fresh cabbage juice with your juicer and store it with a lid in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. But it’s usually better to drink it right away to ensure you are receiving the benefits. Your best option might be to have your fresh green cabbage in the refrigerator and make the juice as you go.
