Ulcers (duodenal and gastric), H. Pylori

Your digestive system produces strong acids and juices that are designed to help break down the food you eat so that its components can be used to nourish the body.

In ulcer patients, this defense of the stomach's lining against stomach acids has broken down somehow, so that...
