I had an endoscopy three weeks ago. The doctor said I had an ulcer in my esophagus. I would like information on what to eat to heal it. Please advise. I am currently taking Nexium twice a day. I am female and 63 years of age. I am not taking any other medication.
There is no evidence that specific foods will heal an ulcer. There are some reports that eating apples or apple cider vinegar helps, but these are not substantiated by good research. There are also foods that are listed to make reflux worse but again, research does not necessarily show this to be true. This is likely because it depends highly on each person. I am not a doctor, however, so if you continue to have problems, I would suggest consulting your physician.
