    Post different approach?

    Has anyone tried a holistic approach to treating ulcers? I've been advised in regard to AloVera but is there an herbal supplement out there?
    She's been treated with UlcerGuard and now we're going to start with ranitidine but would like to move to something more "natural".

    This has been the best product I have found for my horse. Very natural ingrediants that are similar to U-7 but much less expensive. He has been on it for about a year. He still gets 1/4 tube of ulcer gaurd when traveling but this keeps him happy and healthy in his training program at home.

    I thought aloe vera was "natural' - its a plant, after all. Although I can't imagine feeding it to a horse, or ingesting it at all, but hey...
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    That was my thought as well, you can't get much more natural than aloe juice. Maybe organic aloe juice?

    If you didn't want to go with aloe you could try stomach soother which is just papaya puree (not juice) Papaya is where they get omeprazole from so there is some similiarities to giving the puree and gastrguard.
