An ulcer is an erosion of tissue, producing a crater like lesion. It occurs in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or in the first portion of the small intestine (duodenal ulcer). Individuals with a peptic ulcer must be monitored by a doctor due to potential serious consequences if not effectively treated. Ulcers are usually the result of a breakdown in protective factors that line the stomach or small intestine. Smoking is a significant factor in the occurrence and severity of peptic ulcers.

An allergy to milk may be a causative factor in many cases of ulcers also. A diet rich in fibre is associated with a reduced rate of duodenal ulcers as compared with a low-fibre diet. Raw cabbage juice is well documented as having remarkable success in treating peptic ulcers. Rhubarb or aloe-vera preparations can be used to stop the bleeding of an ulcer.
