Q: 

Can stress cause peptic ulcers?

A: There is solid evidence that psychological stress triggers many ulcers and impairs response to treatment. Psychological stress probably functions most often as a cofactor with H pylori. It may act by stimulating the production of gastric acid or by promoting behaviour that causes a risk to health. Unravelling the aetiology of peptic ulcer will make an important contribution to the biopsychosocial model of disease.

Q: 

State the action of NSAIDS in peptic ulcer?

A: Prostaglandin (PGE2) and prostacyclin (PGI2) are cytoprotective of the GI mucus membrane. They decrease the acid secretion, promotes the secretion of protective mucus, and enhance mucosal blood flow. However, arachidonic acid, a membrane lipid requires cyclooxygenases (COX1) to synthesize prostaglandins, while NSAIDS inhibit the cyclooxygenases. In other words, NSAIDS inhibit COX1, which blocks the synthesis of prostaglandins, which disallows the decrease of acid secretion, decrease the secretion of protective mucus, and decrease mucosal blood flow, therefore, causing peptic ulcer, which is an imbalance in acid secretion and mucus protectant....

Some of the home remedies that you can use to cure it are drinking a mixture of 1tsp of pepper, 1tsp of cardamom seeds with half a glass of water after boiling the mixture, an hour after a meal. Chewing peppermint also helps in soothing the digestive muscles as it contains menthol. In terms of eating habits, chewing your food slowly and steadily is important. Since you are also underweight, consuming muskmelons three times a day for about 40 days is very useful. You could also consider adopting a mango-milk diet for a month. It involves eating two...
