Peptic ulcer disease refers to ulceration (sores) in the lining of upper portion of digestive tract such as esophagus, stomach, duodenum etc. Depending upon where these ulcers are located they are designated with various names such as gastric ulcers or duodenal ulcers. Our stomach normally produces an acid (hydrochloric acid/HCl), which is essential for proper digestion of food. The digestive tract has some natural barriers to protect itself from corrosive effects of acids.
If there is overproduction of acid or disruption of natural barriers, acid burns and corrodes the inner delicate lining of digestive tract. Factors ranging form emotional stress, certain food, infection with microorganism (H. Pylori), overuse of certain conventional anti-inflammatory medicines, smoking, all contribute towards over stimulation of acid. Usually patients with peptic ulcer disease have family history of ulcer indicating that some inborn or inherent tendencies make one prone for the condition.

Peptic ulcer disease is a constitutional disease that finds its local expression at the level of digestive system. Being a constitutional disorder, it calls for constitutional approach towards treatment. Homeopathic approach towards the management of Peptic Ulcer Disease is constitutional and involves evaluation of the individual factors inclusive of ones personal and family history (ascertaining the genetic tendency), while planning a long-term treatment. Homeopathic approach to Peptic Ulcer Disease treatment is a totalistic approach meaning treating the individual who is diseased rather than merely treating local diseased body parts. Homeopathy is very strongly suggested for Peptic Ulcer Disease.
