Foods that Must be Avoided when Fasting for Ulcer Sufferers

The month of Ramadan is synonymous with the long-awaited moments of fasting and sahur. After a day of enduring hunger and thirst, this moment is an opportunity to pamper your stomach.

However, for people suffering from stomach acid or ulcers, choosing the menu for fasting and sahur can be a challenge. Choosing the wrong food or drink can have fatal consequences, namely a recurrence of stomach ulcers.

Therefore, it is important for ulcer sufferers to pay attention to their nutritional intake, especially when fasting. Here are some foods that ulcer sufferers need to avoid during the month of Ramadan to prevent recurrence.

Food to Avoid for Ulcer Sufferers When Fasting

For people with ulcers, fasting can be a challenge in itself. Choosing the wrong food when breaking the fast or sahur can trigger stomach ulcer symptoms such as pain, nausea and bloating.

Here are some types of food that should be avoided:

1. Foods with High Fat Content

Fat can weaken the muscles that maintain stomach acid, so the acid can rise and cause pain. Red meat, fried foods and ice cream are examples of high-fat foods that should be avoided.

2. Spicy Food

Research has shown that consuming spicy foods can cause stomach discomfort and trigger a burning sensation for those with stomach acid problems. This happens because the capsaicin content in spicy foods can irritate the esophagus and cause acid reflux.

3. Sour Fruits and Sour Vegetables

Vegetables and fruit are healthy, but some types can make stomach ulcers worse. Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons, as well as raw tomatoes and onions, have a sour taste that can trigger reflux. 

4. Caffeinated and Carbonated Drinks

Caffeine and soda can increase stomach acid production and slow digestion. Alcohol, coffee, tea and soda are examples of drinks that should be avoided.

5. Foods that are Difficult to Digest

Cakes, chocolate and cheese are delicious, but these foods are difficult to digest and can slow stomach emptying. This can increase stomach acid and make ulcers worse.

Benefits of Fasting for Ulcer Sufferers

Have you ever heard that fasting can help cure stomach ulcers? Is that right? Apparently, according to experts, fasting provides benefits for ulcer sufferers. Research shows that there are no abnormalities found in people with functional ulcers when fasting. In fact, they feel their stomach ulcers are reduced and they feel healthier.

1. Improve your Diet

Ulcers often arise due to irregular eating patterns and consumption of foods that trigger gastric problems, such as fatty, sour, spicy foods, fizzy drinks and smoking habits. Fasting helps ulcer sufferers have a more regular eating pattern, which play an important role in the recovery process.

2. Self-Control for Mental Health

Ulcers can also be caused by psychological problems such as stress or psychosomatic illnesses, which increase stomach acid. When fasting, individuals practice psychological self-control, which is an important factor to maintain health. A healthy soul is key to a healthy life.

Remember, various physical illnesses often have their roots in mental or mental problems. For example, psychosomatic diseases that increase stomach acid, hypertension that increases due to emotional disorders, and asthma that recurs when stressed.

Therefore, it is important for ulcer sufferers to regulate their diet and maintain their mental health, especially during the month of Ramadan. Better to prevent than to cure, am I right?
