In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to fix a stomach ulcer. When you have an ulcer, you have damage in the mucus layer which is a protective coating in the stomach. The body produces about .5 to 1.5L of gastric acid (composed of hydrochloric acid, potassium chloride, sodium chloride) every single day.
The difference between Ulcer and Acid Reflux/Heartburn:
The normal pH of the stomach should be between 1.5 and 3 (strong acid). With acid reflux or heartburn, if this pH starts to go higher(more alkaline), the stomach valve will not close properly so the acid starts splashing up. It will get worse with food. While with Ulcer, the food will coat the burning area in the stomach temporarily.
