What is H. Pylori?
Helicobacter pylori is a species of bacteria that can cause stomach infections, typically acquired during childhood. It's possible to have an infection and not get sick from it, and as a result it is believed that over half the world could be affected by H. pylori. How do you get H. pylori infections? H. pylori bacteria is easily spread through contact with contaminated saliva, vomit, fecal matter, and also through food or water.
H. pylori symptoms may or may not be present in those with an infection, but it is a common cause of ulcers and may cause aches or burning pains, nausea, vomiting, frequent burping, bloating, and weight loss. Once identified, H. pylori is easy to take care of.

Remedies for H. Pylori
The Popularity of H. Pylori Remedies - Full List
[YEA] I hope my post helps someone. I had Helicobacter Pylori for almost 2years, I am not sure how I picked up although I do suspect it may have been at the nursing home where I spent many days with my mother before she passed. Anyway after 3 failed rounds of antibiotics I resorted to antibiotics which they used to give H, Pylori patients back in the late 70's made up at a compound chemist, you take 17 antibiotics and acid lowering drugs per day. I made it through one day and had a bad reaction which resulted in a migraine for 1 week. After I recovered, I tried to accept there was nothing I could do and live with it (as one doctor told me), so I went home depressed and feeling sorry for myself.
Then I thought I don't have to accept this I wasn't born with it so I can get rid of it. Long story short I started taking Acidophilus "I.... H..... " sold here in Australia the dosage is 1 per day but I took 5 - 6 per day for the first week then alternated between 1 - 4 after that (Please note this is the dosage I took I am not suggesting that you take that many) its what you feel comfortable with. Then I took VCO, the dosage varied from 1 teaspoon 3 x times a day to sometimes just 1 or 2 tablespoons the trick is to be consistant and take it every day no matter what dosage. I also took ACV with the mother regulary at first then every other day. And I am happy to say I cured it I no longer have Helicobacter Pylori, I have been tested and it came back negative and you couldn't wipe the smile off my face. If you have had no luck with antibiotics don't give up- this way may take a little longer but it was worth it. PS. I still take Acidophilus every day (1per day) and the occaional VCO & ACV.

[YEA] H pylori - I suffered with this for twenty plus years. My weight was under 100 pounds and I could not keep a meal down. In the beginning no one knew what it was...then in 1983 my doctor did put me on an antibiotic and bismuth tablet three times a day for 30 days, after doing an endoscopy. It worked and I have never had it return. All tests have confirm that it has never returned.

[YEA] This remedy worked well! I have been using it for 2 weeks and continue to feel the improvements in overall digestive health. Most days, it has completely stopped my gas problem, bloating is gone, and bowel movements are frequent and healthy. I was a practicing alcoholic who had not gone more than a week without drinking for 3 years, so my digestive system was under a lot of stress, and this rebalancing remedy helped me along tremendously during my path to recovery. I drink up to 4 oz of Aloe Vera Juice, and just pay attention to bowel movements as a que to the right consumption levels. My diet is high in lean protein, fiber, greens, and essential fatty acids to combat inflamation. People say I look ten years younger since I started, and I am only 27.

[YEA] ACV WORKS! I have suffered from constipation,weight loss, cramping and bloating for about 5 years. Recently I had some lab work done and discovered that I have h.pylori. The doctor immediately prescribed me antibiotics. I have never been a pill popper,so I investigated other natural remedies thanks to my chemistry professor. He suggested ACV 2tbsp. before bed, 2 ozs. of aloe vera juice throughout the day & fresh warm lemon water in the am. After 1 day I saw the change in my bowel movements and my over all well being. I have noticed that I have shed 3lbs, but i know that was most of the toxins and impurities. I feel alot better overall. This is an amazing informative website.

[YEA] I've been diagnosed with H.Pylori a while ago and refused to see the doctor after one round of unhelpful antibiotics. My stomach would sometimes bleed a little. I could detect it from my saliva and stools. But it wasn't a big deal. Last week, I was trying to finish my dissertation and was really stressed. My stomach started bleeding constantly so I figured it probably turned into an ulcer, though I don't know the exact diagnosis. I started using ACV+baking soda (which had cured my acid reflux and stomach problems previously for 8 months but had then stopped working) along with Cayenne Pepper. I mix all of them in a bit of water and take it on an empty stomach. Within a day or two my bleeding stopped and I generally feel an increased sense of well-being. Thank you EC, and thank God for natural remedies.

[YEA] I too have suffered from h pylori for some time now. The dr prescribed a shitload of meds that made me feel worse...nausea, loss of appetite, extreme weight loss, low energy.. The worse part was the antibiotics didnt even help. Refusing to put myself through that again, I read through all these comments and came up with what worked for me. All the ingredidents I found from my local food store. First it is vital that you switch up your diet. Anything made in a factory, dont put it in your mouth.. I elimiate all processed foods, refined sugars, meats, dairy, harmful fats. Basically my diet is organic, vegan. our bodies have the power to heal itself, I truly belive that. Everyday I follow the same regime, and now I have no symptoms, my energy is back, my appetite is back, and I saw results in ONE day!!!! Here is my regime as follows:
Everyday I swallow a teaspoon full of VCO(virgin coconut oil), ACV(apple cidar vinegar), and Manuka Honey (it costs about $50) 3 times a day. I sip licorice tea with ginger w manuka honey (for taste), 2 times a day, a take a probiotic twice aday, and a multivitamin
My diet is lots of green veggies, and fruits, tofu, assorted nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds) and lots of water.
Im not exaggerating when I tell you how amazing I feel thus far, even after the first day, my family was amazed the transition I made. So throw out those meds and put some good ol mother earth back in your bodies and heal yourself!

I have been having heartburn and abdominal pain almost every day for the past 6 years. I have tried Prilosec/tums/mylanta etc but they provide only temporary relief. I have mostly stopped all that especially prilosec. I have been reading the posts from this site. And I decided to take matters into my hands with some decent success.
1) Water : I started drinking around 8 glasses of water per day. A couple of days later, I can observe a significant improvement. Except for frequenting the bathroom, this is a must for everyone who is concerned about digestive health.
2) ACV: I take a tablespoon of Organic ACV with the mother before going to bed.This mostly took care of all my sleep issues.
Besides the above, I have cut my coffee and limited spicy food intake and added yoghurt to my lunch which also helps.
Now I am not saying my ulcer/h.pylori has been cured. But the associated symptoms/pain have been vastly reduced just from the above two solutions alone.

YEA (2) 67% BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1) 33%Posted by Ben (Kansas City, Mo) on 04/02/2013
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] Broccoli also helped reduce my Hpylori problem, although so have several other things. Broccoli worked in the same day for me too. BUT if you really cook it for a long time, it doesn't help. Just boil it really quick to get rid of any bacteria it may harbor (you never know what the people picking it are like). It should be BRIGHT NEON-ISH GREEN when you eat it. Don't boil or steam for over two minutes. In most cases 30seconds to a minute is just fine, maybe even less than that is needed. It should still be CRUNCHY when you eat it as well. If it is cooked to much it will not help you at all.

[YEA] Yes, thank you all you guys for sharing this truth that broccoli really cures H Pylori without any surgeries performed! My daugther of 14 years old was suffering from severe H P for 7 days. All medicine didn't cure it. Almost gave up. Then she tried your broccoli method and it works almost instantly! While eating it, she felt the pain just gone almost instantly! After eating the broccoli for the rest of the day, she was cured within that day itself!!!! Our entire family have been eating more broccoli since then to kill all bacteria in the stomach and body. Now even scientists say broccoli can cure cancer, not just prevent it. So guys, please eat more broccoli.

[YEA] For H. Pylori broccoli juice cured my daughter. She went to the hospital about 3 times in one month. She could not keep anything down. I took a stalk of broccoli to her on her sick bed. She felt great within 10 minutes. She has been better since.

[YEA] What about the use of eating 3 1/2 ounces of broccoli sprouts a day for at least 8 weeks to kill off the H. pylori. A study was done at Johns Hopkins saying it even eradicated H. pylori that was antibiotic resistant? I have been putting it in the blender with fresh carrot juice, fresh cabbage and drinking it twice a day..I am also taking NAC twice a day..Anybody else tried this?

[YEA] Someone posted this cure on Earthclinic but I can't find it now. I took 3 capsules daily, 40,000 H.U. (450mg) for 2 months with and without food. I still suffered with pain for the first week but since then, I have not had any pain. What a wonderful relief.

[YEA] The natural cure for h pylori infection is cayenne pepper capsules between 500-1000 mg a day usually one or two capsules for 30 days and the cayenne needs to have a heat value of 90,000 btu's or greater. Works every time!

[YEA] I've had problems with H. Pylori due to multiple overseas tours. Got it in Iraq in 2006, had it untreated for a couple of years and then a doctor friend who had also been over there told me to get checked for h. Pylori. Sure enough, there it was. Went on antibiotics for a month and it went away. My symptoms were frequent, multiple attacks of almost purely liquid diarrhea, no matter what I ate. After raw/pure foods like sushi, it was less than 20 minutes between eating and elimination. Probably got it again last year in either Iraq or Afg. It's gotten really bad again, with frequent, uncontrollable, and watery eliminations. Between four and six a night after eating. My wife was telling me to go to the doctor, but I wanted to beat it naturally and I, like many of you, hate antibiotics.
Saw someone talking about coconut oil. I always have some on standby. The kind I used was unrefined, cold-pressed, whole kernel. Two nights ago, before eating dinner (I fast about 16 hours every day), I scooped about 1.5-2 tablespoons of coconut oil into my mouth and ate it. I had my first solid elimination in I can't remember how long. I make sure to have a large scoop every day before breaking my fast, and I haven't had a problem since. I am so happy. To all sufferers out there, I'm telling you, this is the cure. No meds, no big pharma, just good old fashioned Mother Nature. Don't be afraid to have too much. Organic coconut oil is a miracle food. Just take a big dumb scoop before you eat. Thank you for this site.
