What is Stomach Happy?
Stomach Happy a TCM herbal blend that can be very helpful as a remedy to help with stomach ulcers in dogs, cats, and horses.
Gastric ulcers are often related to the method by which the stomach protects itself against the acid.
A prescription of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is a common cause of gastric ulcers because NSAIDs decrease the stomach’s ability to buffer acids used for digestion.
Ancient Chinese texts show that the key to treating gastric ulcers is to nourish the Stomach Yin.
Stomach Happy is formulated for mild gastric ulcers. (Another formula, Jade Lady, is designed for more serious lesions.)
The Traditional Chinese Medicine indications for Stomach Happy are generally mild to moderate gastric ulcers caused by stress.
The “stress” cause may be due to training, racing, drugs, emotion, etc.
Stomach Happy is also an amazing tool for preventing stomach ulcers.
