About 15 years ago, an Australian doctor proved that ulcers are caused by bacteria that burrow into our stomach wall and remain until it is ready to cause pain. The doctor drank a cup-full of the bacteria, Helicobacter pylori, and soon shocked the medical world when he was diagnosed with the ulcer from the same cup of bacteria he drank. If you know or suspect you have an ulcer, a doctor can test your breath in a ballon that reacts with a substance that can be positive for an ulcer. A simple blood test will confirm the ulcer. I was in a study that used specific medication, an acid fighter and antibiotic, and my ulcer was healed in two to three weeks. I have been taken Prilosec, 20 mg( and like medication),once a day for 15 years. Different brands of Prilosec-like medication has always tamed my once-ulcer. I take one Prilosec a day just to make sure I have no acid build-up. I do not drink daily, but I have not noticed any problem with my stomach if I drink. Check-it-out!
