Native Americans have been using herbal poultice and teas to treat ulcers (both stomach and skin) for centuries. Among the herbs they use are goldenseal and pokeroot.

Pokeroot is a cure for skin ulcers and gastric ones. Goldenseal, a natural antibiotic, heals skin ulcers. Chamomile is calming and soothes stomach problems, as does Slippery Elm(soothes stomach lining). Meadowsweet reduces acid in the stomach. Fennel will aid the indigestion process. American Ginseng is wonderful for ulcers, among other things.
