Cabbage juice, gastritis and stomach ulcers
What would you rather have: gastric ulcer surgery or a glass of cabbage juice? All of the sudden, cabbage juice doesn't taste this awful anymore.
Did you know that Captain Cook always took sauerkraut on his sea voyages to prevent scurvy? During Captain Cook's first voyage in 1768 a storm came up and many of his man were injured. The ship's doctor used cabbage poultices on the wounds of the men to save them from gangrene.
Cabbage juice is tonic par excellence, purifying, anti-inflammatory, a true elixir of youth. It is rich in minerals and vitamins and gives strength and vitality.
It also contains natural lactic acid which inhibits unwanted bacterial flora in the intestines and stimulates digestion. In fact, many doctors argue that cabbage contains a known therapeutic principle, called "Vitamin U" with curative action in the stomach ulcers treatment
This juice is effective for a wide range of diseases of the digestive system (constipation, intestinal worms, duodenal ulcers, colitis or Crohn's disease) and it unlocks bowel transit, stimulates digestion and has anticancer action.
French Naturopath Raymond Dextreit said that cabbage juice is the most efficient of all antiacid gastric dressings.
Even so, you don't see much cabbage juice on the shelves next to carrot or tomato juice. Why is that? I can give you at least two reasons: the taste and the smell.
But enough with the praising. What about the practical side? Here are a couple of questions that arise frequently:
# How do you make cabbage juice?
You do not need any complex tools to make cabbage juice. All you have to do is to wash the cabbage leaves thoroughly and put them in the juicer.
# How much time do you need to drink?
The treatment method is straightforward. Drink 1 glass of cabbage juice from a medium sized cabbage for 3 weeks. Divide the amount obtained in 3 parts, and drink each part between the main meals.
# Cabbage juice has side effects?
This gastritis and stomach ulcer natural remedy has one side effect though - it will probably give you intestinal gas.
# Does cabbage juice taste that awful?
I must admit that in the beginning I didn't drink cabbage juice for its "yummy" taste, but because I was getting stabbed by gastritis.
I remember the unpleasant feeling I had after my first couple of glasses. After a while I had gotten accustomed to it, so now I can drink a glass of cabbage juice like water. I don't feel any nausea or regurgitation sensation.
You really need practice to drink cabbage juice. I was already a potato juice

It's always a good idea to start with a small amount and increase the quantity gradually.
