Can raw garlic cure my stomach ulcer and remove H. pylori?

I'm starting a garlic treatment for my stomach ulcer, and have some concerns about whether this will work. My doctor has prescribed antibiotics, but my naturopath has recommended raw garlic (3-4 times daily) and I want to try that approach first, along with other supporting herbs. However I'm worried about the ramifications if this fails, because stomach ulcers are pretty serious from what I hear. Am I taking a big risk of perforation, cancer, internal bleeding etc. by not taking the medication? And is it possible that the garlic could eradicate H. pylori bacteria? [more inside]

Will the real owner of the tummy please stand up?

This is a dumb question about long-term relationships and stomach gurgling. Yes, you read that right! When I'm in bed with my wife and her or my tummy rumbles, we can't agree on whose tummy it is. Anyone else experience this? What's the cause? [more inside]

I don't feel sick though my body disagrees...

My insides are turning everything to liquid. Doesn't matter what I eat. It's been 5 days now. However, I don't feel sick and have no other "symptoms" of illness. What gives? Due to work, I won't be able to get to a doctor 'til Friday... Should I just fast for a day or two? (Saying that, however, I am *starving* constantly, as opposed to just being hungry.)
