Ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract are a pitta disorder. Pitta is hot, sharp, and penetrating, and when aggravated, it can erode the sur?face of internal organs or soft tissues. The mucous membrane lining the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, or colon can develop ulceration because of excess pitta.
Individuals with a pitta constitution or pitta disorder, or whose blood type is 0 and Rh-positive, are more prone to developing ulcers. A person with ulcers may experience pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, midback ache, and shoulder pain.
Ulcers can be effectively treated by treating the high pitta. If you have ulcers, strictly follow the pitta-pacifying diet: avoid hot spicy food, fermented or sour food, sour fruit, and citrus fruit. (See chapter 8 for complete guidelines.) Stay away from alcohol, tobacco, and coffee. And do not take aspirins or steroids, which can acceler?ate erosion of the gastric mucosal membrane.

Taking 1 teaspoon of sat isabgol (psyllium husks) at bedtime with a cup of warm milk will also be beneficial.
Stress is often the cause of or a complicating factor in ulcers. To help dissolve stress, make yourself some Tranquil?lity Tea from these herbs:
Combine the herbs in equal proportions, and use about 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture steeped in 1 cup of boiling water to make a tea. Drink it about an hour before going to bed.
Yoga asanas can help you relax and relieve stress, which is beneficial for ulcers. The following positions are par?ticularly recommended for helping with ulcers: Leg Lift, Camel, Cobra, Bow, Bridge, and Spinal Twist.
Shitali pranayama, a breathing exercise that has a cooling, sooth?ing effect, will be helpful. Moon breathing (breathing through the left nostril only) for 5 to 10 minutes has a cooling effect that may also be helpful.
Persons with ulcers should not eat late at night. They also do best if they eat small, frequent meals. Don't keep the stom?ach empty for long. At least have breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so the acid secreted in the stomach can be utilized for digestion.
Today many people use acid-blocking med?ications for ulcers. The best acid blocker in Ayurveda is a combination of the herbs brahmi jatamamsi yashti madhu in equal proportions. A tea made from 1/2 teaspoon of these herbs per cup of wa?ter, taken after lunch and dinner, can help to inhibit acid secretions and prevent ulceration.
