Are there alternative treatments for upper GI bleeding?

If you suspect any upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, see your doctor as soon as possible. The best treatment is determined by a physician. Since things like ulcers and gastric reflux are some of the reasons you may have upper GI bleeding, you may be able to explore alternative treatments for those conditions. Alternative therapy is an option to avoid and soothe the irritation and damage to the GI tract that certain anti-inflammatory medicines can cause. Nobody is hurt by eating well, getting good rest, and exercising to keep certain conditions in check, but when upper GI bleeding is present, there is no alternative treatment better than seeing your doctor.
