He explained further that stomach ulcers requires strong medical treatment.

His words: “It’s very wrong for someone to say that there is no drug for a stomach ulcer.

“For the wound to heal, the person has to take a drug. It is not true that you will just take food for the wound to heal.

“Ulcer is a wound on the walls of the intestine. The wound cannot just go like that without treatment.”

He warned persons dealing with stomach ulcers should take their treatments seriously because it could lead to internal bleeding.

He continued;

“That is why some of those suffering from it die of internal bleeding. So, some people die of bleeding ulcers. That is why people should stop commonising it. There is no scientific evidence to show that ulcer has no treatment.

“So, how does the ulcer come about? Your body secretes a kind of fluid sometimes that is acidic. If it doesn’t see any food, it will start corroding the walls of the gut and if it corrodes the walls of the gut, that is how the wound starts. Although there is also a worm said to usually cause that too.

“Now, when you eat food and the food touches that place, you will start having pain.”

Dr Anyaike further advised patients to take certain foods that prevents the wounds from escalating.

He continued:

“They should make sure that they prevent anything that will touch the wound; they should take something that will reduce the effects of acid.

“And they should take some treatments, antibiotics and others that can help in the healing of the wound.

“When people say there is no drug for ulcers, I do not think it is correct information.

“Any drug that will help the wound to heal takes care of it. The wound cannot just go like that without treatment.

“That is why if you are sick of ulcer, you have to go to the hospital and they will give you drugs and those drugs will reduce the pain and then give room for healing”

The Nigerian doctor also advised stomach ulcer patients to avoid stress.
