Get Tested to Make Sure You Are Indeed Cured
[YEA] 01/04/2008: JH from Trying to Feel Better, USA: "Hi- A multitude of stomach issue has recently sent me in search of info on H. Pylori.
Now, I have always preferred to handle all health issues homeopathically, and am familiar with most of the remedies listed here on your pages.
One thing that concerned me deeply is this - I recognized a large number of these treatments to be great for addressing the actual digestive symptoms said to be caused by HP. HOWEVER - Did any of these actually CURE HP? Did anyone do a urea breath test after the treatment to make sure it tested negative for H. Pylori? Or are all of these folks assuming that since thier symptoms are gone, the bacteria has been killed?
If the latter is the case, then folks, you will most likely suffer these same symptoms again in the future, because the bacteria is not actually dead. either the bacteria's activity has just been suppressed, or your SYMPTOMS have been suppressed.
Since all of this H. Pylori business is relatively new, (2005 Nobel Prize) there's a lot of room for new findings, and for false claims.
Example- there is an article out there stating that the comsupmtion of broccolli and broccolli sprouts will cure HP. But the people conducting the study sell broccolli sprouts! It would be great if the study is true, but folks- use your head!
I understand wanting to find natural ways to rid yourself of this, which is how I ended up here.
But - Use common sense. Make sure you test NEGATIVE before assuming that you've been cured.
01/10/2009: Rich from Boca Raton, Fl replies: "Effects of high dose vitamin C treatment on Helicobacter pylori infection and total vitamin C concentration in gastric juice
It would appear that Mega-C (5 grams Vitamin C for 4 weeks), has a 30% cure rate for H Pylori. My suggestion is to use a buffered form of C, so as not to upset your ph balance. Sodium Ascorbate is my preferred form. You can easily mix 5 grams of Sodium Ascorbate with a glass of milk, without upsetting your stomach. And/or 2 grams with Orange Juice. You can't taste this stuff.
Certainly getting tested is a good idea, as this is a very serious condition."
11/11/2009: Jabbar from Manchester, Uk replies: "Hi,
I just wanted to say, I fully agree with your comments.The testing afterwards is so vital to confirm or negate the continued presence of h.pylori. cheers."
12/09/2009: Jdallaris from Hamilton, Nj replies: "From reading newsletters from alternative doctors it is my understanding that h-pylori bacteria are always present in our digestive tract, but when the numbers get too high they cause gastritis. In our family foreign travel seems to trigger it. Excess stomach acid is not the culprit but rather too little stomach acid. Taking anything that relaxes the muscle that guards the stomach can aggravate this condition. NSAIDS (ibuprofen and co.) also make it worse. I also took an acidic remedy like ACV and routinely take Vitamin D3 7,000-9,000 units. This has a natural antibiotic, cathelicidin. Since it is an antibiotic take extra probiotics to prevent yeast infection. Above all get tested for food sensitivities. I discovered I was a celiac at 64. I also take D-mannose for infections a few times a year. Find a good alternative doctor by checking ACAM and follow his advice."
05/17/2012: Maezombiegirl from Kamloops, Bc, Canada replies: "I have had 2 blood tests for H. Pylori, several years apart, and both returned negative results. It was not until I had a gastroscope done and they took a tissue biopsy that I received the positive test result for H. Pylori, so people need to be aware that the blood test returns false negatives."
08/17/2012: Anonymous from Mts, Virginia replies: "I had a false negative blood test, the first time I went to the ER 10 months later, My symptoms were worse, I was dizzy, flu like symptoms , malnorished, tingling in hands and feet, nausea foggy headed I was house bound, lucky I don't work! I went to see a new dr for kidney inflammation she H pylori test it was HIGH positive. My other dr ran a stool test it was negative!
Early detection is important so it doesnt multiply and get burrow deeper into the lining of the stomach.
Alkalize since H pylori loves acid."
11/30/2012: R.s. from Chicago, Il replies: "The same thing happened to me... I tested negative several times after having 3 endoscopies which included biopsies. On the last one I was diagnosed with H Pylori. This came after I had stopped using a PPI for several years. My guess is it may have been there the whole time but because I was taking the medicine it didn't come up positive.
I too am looking for a natural cure since some of the literature states a lot of strands are resistant to antibiotics.
My question is, has anybody else tested positive on the breath test and negative for the stool test? I was told by a GI that once you have h pylori, the breath test will always be positive and that the stool test is the only way to really know. Anybody else have different information on this? Thanks!"
[YEA] 03/05/2009: marshal from al khobar, saudi arabia: "myrrh cured my sore throat. h pylori infection was diagnosed recently, high recommendations were given to consume fresh ginger juice daily, multi drug therapy will not always eradicate infection completely, well ginger is natural source."Replies
01/12/2010: Emyc from Paducah, Ky Usa replies: "I was wondering if ginger will cure H. pylori? How much should I take? Thanks."
02/04/2012: Christine from Nottingham, England: "I was interested to read Meho MD posting with regard to H pylori infection. Whilst I understand that this is the standed regime in the conventional medical community it does not follow that is the only regime that works. There are many people who have treated themselves succcessfully with the use of natural products that do not have the side effects of standed medicine. The medical proffession does not have all the answers and are often lead by drug companies that are in it for the money. My own experience with conventional is that if they can not identiy your symptoms then you are on your own."Replies
02/05/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "I suppose the good news of the original post is that finally conventional medicine had stubbled onto one of the leading causes of duodenal ulcers. Many yrs agone and patients suffering complications of this disorder. I spoke w/ a man that almost bled to death from an ulcer; he passed out and was found some time latter, taken to ER and treated with only moments to spare until death. He actually had a Near Death Experience (NDE) during this episode.
The MD's post is certainly gracious in light of the history of said conditions."
04/23/2011: Jane from Sf Bay Area, California, Usa: "RE: H Pylori: please everyone, don't take prilosec for H Pylori, gastritis, GERD, or other symptoms. Please do your homework online and read about the negative effects of these meds on your GI system. I had lost 18 pounds in one year (I as already thin, so not good... Got down to 90 lbs. ) and was diagnosed with GERD & gastritis after a colonoscopy; the DR's wanted to put me on Prilosec, etc. But what I read on holistic health sites explained how those drugs just aggravate the problems! Healing happens through proper herbs and substances, and especially PROPER DIET.
For anyone really serious about healing, go to the web site www.gapsdiet.com, to read about the right diet, and order the book 'Gut and Psychology Syndrome' by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride (don't let subtitle mislead you, it's for all kinds of GI-related symptoms. And no, I'm not being paid to give this testimony. ) I've been following the diet strictly for one year, and am now free of pain and have gained back 10 pounds, 8 more to go. The only lab that ever found H Pylori and 2 different parasites in my stools is 'Metametrix Lab'... Not cheap, but well worth it! So just because other labs don't find H Pylori or parasites, don't believe it (and I sent in many stool samples the past year to different labs). Had I known a year ago I had H Pylori, I could have started all the things recommended on this site much sooner! One product I haven't seen mentioned here: 'Zinlori' tablets, by Metagenics. Expensive, but again worth it: they help restore the stomach wall lining and prevent new bacteria from attaching there (recommended by a holistic M. D.) Also L-Glutamine is very healing; many companies make it. Good luck to everyone! Perseverance furthers."Replies
02/03/2012: Meho from Beltsville, Md, Usa replies: "I am an MD and would like to give some input on this. First at all the standard regimen is amoxicilin 1g 2xd, Clarythromycin 500mg 2xd, and a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole 20mg 2 xd. Now you should not treat yourself as severe side effects can occure and supervision by an MD is highly recomended. First at all H. Pylori can be tested in several ways for active infection. Stool antigen is the best but urea test is good as well. Once diagnosed you should undergo standard treatment for 14 days. After that test of cure should be done best is stool antigen or urea test (not as good). Again biopsy is the best overall test to confirm H. Pylori but not always indicated especially younger than 50 year old as the risk of stomach cancer is very small.
H. Pylori is a helical bacteria and about 20% of US population has it. It increases your chances of getting gastric cancer 3 fold over someone who does not have the infection. Indication for treatment is not so well established. And only treatment is performed if ulceration in the stomach or duodenum exist. However, if one does decide to test and the test comes back positive, treatment is always indicated. This is due to the fact that it increases chances of developing gastric cancer. Other antibiotics are metronidazole if amoxicillin allergy exist. There are multiple alternative regimens that can be used if there is a persistent infection. Standard regimen is anywhere 85-95% effective."
02/23/2012: Deerwatcher from Gaylord, Mi replies: "I know a Gastroenterologist who is one of the top docs in the U.S. He says once you are h. Pylori positive you will ALWAYS be h. Pylori positive. You might not be active with the infection but will always test positive the rest of your life. I've read recent research that states you can get it from someone coughing or sneezing by you in a store.
He says that almost all physicians are positive with it."
08/30/2012: Cronelesbo from Sf, Ca replies: "Regarding Deerwatcher's post on GI doc's saying once you test positive for H. pylori you will always test positive.
I'm sorry but GI doctors are not knowledgable and have actually done more damage to many of us with their lack of awareness. They often deny the existence of many serious GI issues such as this. I have been/there done that with the GI docs who didn't test me for C. Difficile intestinal infection even when I requested it and I ended up almost dying as a result. Also they put me on PPI's which only made my issues worse. Years I have spent trying to rectify the damage.
My advice is to research and see a very knowledgable Naturopathic doctor (ND) who can help you. GI doctors are only useful for certain procedures like colonoscopies, but not for this type of thing. They don't even believe in intestinal Candida! Which many of us know can be tested for and we have been living with!"
[YEA] 11/27/2009: Paulica13 from Fort Worth, Texas, USA: "H2O2 cured H. Pylori (bacteria)

07/23/2011: John from Spring, Tx replies: "What kind of Peroxide will I need to use for H. Pylori and Peptic Ulcers? Can it be the normal 3% or do I get food grade, and who carries it?"
01/17/2012: Grizzly from Dd, Germany replies: "I cannot work. That concentration will be at first much much to low. Secondly HP has a very powerfull ktalaze and will without problem destroy H2O2, the third day bacteria passed through my colon with a splash of blood, it is not possible...
I belive in Apple Cider Vinegar becasuse
-low mollecular weight
-it is very acidic
-probably helicobacter have no enzymes which can protect them from acetic acid
-in vitro reserch show good bectericicidal activity
but in water peroxide I dont belive you shoul learn a little bit before swallow something."
Keep Your pH Alkaline
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 04/28/2009: Howaurayou from Las Vegas, NV: "If you have or are suffering from H pylori or just gastric stomach, go to any health food store and get PH paper. The paper dipped in your urine will let you know your PH level. If you are below 7.0, you will notice that is when your stomach will be at its worse. During these times, it is best to eat foods that are alkaline and not acidic. If you are like me, you will see there are foods that are acidic that you have been eating, and causing your stomach to feel even worse. If your body show a PH level below the norm of 7.0 eat foods like apples. When my stomach starts to feel this way one apple usually tones it down and even eliminates the pain and discomfort. It took me a few days of testing my PH levels and eating foods from the the Alakaline group. If you keep your food intake at 70% alkaline and 30 acidic, your PH will return to normal. I feel best when my PH is at 7.5. You may find you need it higher. The best place to look for an alkaline and acidic list of food groups, is to look it up on the internet. It will not cure your H Pylori, but it does make you feel like it is gone if you watch what you eat. Good luck and good health."Replies
01/29/2010: Mark from Mount Pleasant, Michigan replies: "I much agree with the PH balance info. I studied Naturopathy for a year and through the knowledge gained there have been healed and set free from many life debilitating issues. PH balance is one of the foundational principles that plays a vital role in our blood and water chemical efficiency.
I have H-Pylori and like many of you, tried everything natural with hit and miss results. Tried the anti-biotics which helped immensely but for only about 7 months. Now it seems to be back. As I reflect on what has changed, it was my eating habits, which always give me the most trouble in winter months in the north. I have been eating way too many acid producing foods and beverages. The various foods and supplements suggested here all effect PH and will do so differently for each person's own chemistry constitution.
One suggestion I have that can also be helpful for intestinal issues is to try using Kefir. It is potent mix of naturally occuring "good" bacteris or intestinal flora. Fair warning though, it's a labor of love to cultivate it but well worth the effort. It will help combat yeast infection (candida). Remember, sugars are yeasts super fuel and energizer. I'm prone to liking sweets and they get me in trouble most when I over eat them. They too are acid producing along with most dairy, refined flours,and caffeine, my other vice."
Light Meals After 4pm
[YEA] 05/02/2009: Judy from Woodford, NSW Australia: "I have suffered from h pylori and night time was the most terrible experience because I could not sleep with the constant irritation of my stomach. I have been taking lots of ginger, garlic, tumeric, cabbage juice, brocholi sprouts, plenty water, probiotics. I have to eat lightly and the most important thing is not to eat any heavy food at night or I won't get to sleep. I therefore eliminate all processed foods - have lots of raw veg salads and light fish. What I discovered eliminated the night discomfort for me was just having watermelon or light fruit after 4 pm - nothing hard to digest. It allows the stomach to heal overnight as the stomach does not have to pump out a lot of acid when you just eat fruit. I started sleeping better, pain went away and I woke up feeling refreshed. I now do not have symptoms. AT night the stomach does NOT want to be digesting heavy food. Sip on teas made from tumeric, ginger, liquorice. When you get enough rest your body will be able to fight the bug."Replies
[YEA] 04/05/2012: Janelle from Omaha, Ne replies: "I would have to agree with this, all of my severe episodes involving my stomach-reflux, indigestion, nausea- happen if I eat a big dinner which includes a concentrated protein like chicken or beef. Also, stomach acid is the lowest in the evening and it takes a lot of acid to digest meat."
[YEA] 07/19/2012: Kat from Ny replies: "Eating light it the key, skip dinner or just have fresh squeezed juice, or fresh cilantro juice it is healing. The days of big food and big dinner has always been a bad idea the body needs time to heal and clear away all the toxins and the body needs time to rest, You wouldn't run your car all night it would break down more often, So in order for your digestion to be healthy eating light makes you feel cleaner, clearer and refreshed, and helped me eliminate stomach pain."
[YEA] 01/21/2013: Rmr from M, Ct: "I am writing this hoping to help others. I'm replying to all forums I can find abou HP. Anyone suffering with it needs to do some research on Manuka honey. My husband suffered over 10 years and was convinced he had a tumor or cancer. After finally confronting the unknown, he tested for H. Pylori. Refusing to take antibiotics, we researched natural products and gave Manuka a try (Whole Foods carries it). He took a heaping tablespoon daily. He felt better in 3-4 weeks. 6 months into his honey treatment he visited the GI doc, that said he was symptom free. FYI, after contracting HP, the antibody stays in the system and you will continue to test on future blood exams. It's been 2 years post honey (he hasn't taken it in 1 years) and he remains symptom free."Replies
02/07/2013: Sam from Tampa, Fl replies: "Congratulations, but keep in mind, he can remain symptoms free and still have HP. Only a stool test can tell if he has it, and I am sure he has, and the concentration of the bacteria. I did the same (I was taking more than Manuka honey though) and remained symptoms free for more than 6 years. My health started deteriorating last year. It is called an autonomic nervous system dysfunction. Keep in mind, I was still free from stomach problems. Fast forward, it is suspected now that HPylori cased stomach lining athrophy - athrophic gastritis, which in turn caused megaloblastic anemia which in turn caused low blood volume and other mega symptoms... So be aware. Blood and breath tests are useless, especially blood, after you have already been diagnosed with infection."

11/13/2011: Ian from San Jose, Ca replies: "Last week I was admitted to ER for abdominal pain after consuming a plate of Chicken Enchilladas at a local Taqueria. In minutes my stomach was in knots, my breathing slowed, heart and blood pressure rised to 210/100! Everything in my bowels emptied and I vomited. I assumed that the cause was food-poisoning but after blood-work was drawn and a preliminary examination of EKG, Chest X-Ray was taken. There was no-signs of a viral infection.
They did prescribe me with Omeprazole (ant-acid) and Promethazine (antihistamine). Both of which were known treatments for H. Pylori. This bacteria is uniquely adapted to take advantage of the hellish digestive brew in your stomach. It produces an enzyme that prevents the immune system from destroying it. Your body's own immune system will trigger the histamines to fight the infection causing acid-reflux and creating the ulcer.
It's for this reason it can remain in a person's body for decades if left untreated!! When I return to my primary care physician I'm going to present them with this information and suggest these treatments, upon postive verification of the baceteria. I'm glad I read this post. The herbal remedy is superior!
