The etiology of peptic ulcer is reported to be as inflammation which is caused by Helicobacter pylori and an excessive use of NSAIDs. There is standard treatment following the use of proton pump inhibitors, antacids, NSAIDs but an overuse of these leads to another side-effect. The area where allopathic medicines fail, ayurvedic medicine has always covered them back. Tons of studies are there which overpower using ayurvedic or traditional medicines over allopathic drugs. From the ancient times, the Indian civilization history has shown well proofs indicating the best use of traditional medicines with maximum therapeutic activity and minimum or zero side effects.
