Obviously, your diet modifications will be individual to you as far as what your stomach can tolerate as you said that milk makes you worse and tea makes you better. For most it is the opposite. You can consider keeping a food diary and figure out what works best for you.
Have you seen a doctor for the ulcers? Ulcers are commonly caused by a bacteria, frequent use of NSAID's (Ibuprofen/Advil/Motrin, Naproxen/Aleve) and increased acid production. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics and/or acid blockers in addition to the diet modifications.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the response JTS....
