I have been using coconut oil for several weeks, initially for weight loss. A few years ago, I heard of using it as a remedy for so many things, but when I tried it, my face broke out, so I stopped using it. I quit smoking (YAY!) almost 4 months ago, and not only gained weight but was told by a doctor that my distended belly was the result of h.pylori bacteria. I can't believe I aquiessed, but took the prescription for double dose antibiotics I was given. I have rarely taken any antibiotics, and don't like them at all. They caused a Candida imbalance, and a return of intestinal parasites. Then I came across a jar of organic VCO in my fridge, and figured it was worth a try. Amazing results; my energy level rose immediately, my belly started disappearing after a week, and I seem to crave "good" food, while being relatively uninterested in unhealthy food. An unexpected benefit was how clear my sinuses became; even 2 months after stopping smoking, my head and ears were stopped up. I am now experiencing some minor break out on my face, but am beginning to suspect this is a cleansing reaction from candida die-off, parasite die off and tobacco cessation. I think it is important that the VCO be ORGANIC. Thanks for the site!

I actually spent 12 years in the laboratory researching the uses of colloidal silver. One of the more difficult projects was the effect on H. Pylori since it is an anaerobe (doesn't like oxygen) so we had to culture in a CO2 environment. However... We were testing a product called Super Neti Juice (which is a powerful colloidal silver) and found that it worked very well on H. Pylori even down to a stomach pH of about 3.0.
The trick is to take about 1 ounce on and empty stomach three times per day for about a week. If you take it with anything else... It will bond with that and not work. If you add sugar... It will not work. If you take it once a day it will not work. But when we tested just this simple product by itself, on an empty stomach, three times per day, it dropped the H. Pylori titer down to un-measurable. Even months later.
Hope this helps you. I have since used it on a few friends with ulcers and it has dumb-founded hte folks at the hospital because when they use the endoscope and see the ulcer and then the titer comes back for negative H. Pylori, they just shake their heads. Then... of course, the ulcers heal very quickly and everyone is happy.

Hi, My husband had H. Pylori many years ago. The antibiotic treatment did not work. What did was homemade (strong) colloidal silver. I'm sorry but I do not remember quantities and as it was homemade I have no strength measurement either. He did have to take it for quite a while though.

I posted before on h-pylori and this is a follow up. I went to a health food store in Mexico for h-pylori, and the homeopath gave me the following: Colloidal silver, Chaparal, Shitake mushrooms.
I take 2 pills Chaparral 1/2 hour before breakfast and lunch, take 2 pills Shitake mushroom 10 minutes after breakfast and lunch. Take Colloidal silver after every meal, after breakfast, lunch and dinner. You finish all of it, the big bottle of Colloidal silver took one month to finsih. I have not tested yet, I am waiting for the two week period before testing.
I met with the Chinese Medicine doctor and she said that I need to stabilize my stomach first, then I will take herbs.
I hope that I can help by posting this.

For anyone suffering with h pylori, as I am, I have discovered (from a medical school study in England) that any remedy used should be taken with cranberry juice. Cranberry juice makes it much more difficult for h pylori to stick to and hide in tissue. H pylori is hard to get rid of because it first destroys your protective mucous, then hides deep in tissue cells when a remedy comes to fight it. I am using tumeric, ginger, and coconut oil. Adding the cranberry juice has decresed my suffering a lot. I hope this info will help someone.

I have gotten relief from d-mannose, particularly for the cramping. For me, the cramping stops immediately. And Omega 3 Fatty Acids seem to be very beneficial in a general sense.
Here's something I just found on-line and decided to come back here to let everyone know in case you're interested.
From cancertutor.com, a very reliable website:
Ellagic acid is anti-bacterial, [it] destroys the H. pylori bacteria responsible for stomach ulcers. Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenolic constituent found in 46 different fruits and nuts, like grapes, pomegranate, red raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and walnuts.
This non-profit site: http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/EllagicAcid.html discusses ellagic acid and has links to other sites that discuss it. Linked vendors are identified as such, but tend to be reputable.
I'm going to try it and get back.

My chiropractor told me the reason People are not getting rid of H pylori is because they are not changing the ph in their stomach. We need stomach acid to digest food and more and more doctors are prescribing antacids. H pylori will go away if dietary changes are made. He said that he advises people to do the antibiotic treatment and from there he helps people get their stomach ph correct. If you are getting chronic heartburn- you are getting it for a reason. Do food eliminations to see what you are sensitive to. I was eating bananas and I would get heartburn. I found out through a food intolerance test that I had a food sensitivity to bananas. If I avoid them, eventually I might be able to allow them back in my diet, but for now-I don't want heartburn.

ive been battleing pylori for along time and ive been ill for many years. I have ulcers for many years and I couldnt even function, but now im rebuilding my stomach. First you need to get rid of the pylori and parasites, yes parasites.
Im married to a latin fellow, and ive been sick most of our marriage. I tried one herb to take out the parasites first. The name is epazote, tribal people from the rainforest and people in mexico use it to take out parasites, of every kind. Ive never felt better, once I took the plant which is sold in any mexican grocery strore, I made a tea, but only drink 1 quarter cup in the morning on an empty stomach for 3 days and on the fourth day they will die and exit in your feces, do again in 2 weeks to get any eggs that are left, you must do it a second time.
Then I took probiotics to put the good bacteria back and changed my diet, I also drink apple cider vinager in a glass of water before bed, I was amazed all acne is gone and my skin is soft as a babys bottem, now its time to heal it, im about to drink the cabbage juice, what I have is sort of a leaky gut syndrome, that is caused by to much over the counter pain aids and it wore the stomach lining down and thats when the stomach lining was damaged, then that gives the parasites and pylori the greenlight to take over, I was to the point where the toxins went into my blood stream and caused alot of pain and sickness, do not exceed 1 fourth cup of epazote tea a day for 3 days and make sure you do it a second time. This is the only way to really rid yourself of this nasty sickness, I also eat enzymes with every meal. goodluck my life made a total turn around.

I have been burping at least 100 times a day for 3 weeks. I tried everything like, eat less but frequently and avoided a lot of stuff that contraindicated. None of this worked. I am kind of worried about having h-pylori cuz a nurse I am working with told me that her husband had the same symptoms been diagnosed for h-pylori. I am a nurse but don't believe in medicine I want to do the natural way. So, last night I asked my husband to squeeze me 2 big pieces of garlic and mix it with apple cider vinegar. I took it by not chewing it, in other words, I just swallowed it. I got instant relief and had only 6 burp. When I got up this morning I dont feel bloated. Then this morning after I ate breakfast (probably an hour ago) I repeated it again. And I only have 3 burp so far. I feel so happy to have so much relief from this kitchen product. Hopefully it will help solve this problem cuz I hate taking medicine. I will give update after a week to see if this really a wonder cure.

Dear friends, I too was diagnosed with h pylori and discovered eating at least 1 clove of organic garlic a day on an empty stomach helps. Garlic is an anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungus remedy. Natures own antibiotic! After I chew and crush and eat the garlic, I swallow it and leave it there for atleast 2 hours to work. After the 2 hours, I usually wash down some spring water. Garlic is a blood thinner, so be careful if you are taking a blood thinning drug. Talk to your doctor first if you are taking a blood thinner and plan on taking this regimen. Good luck folks!

Just a note about testing positive for H-pylori, if you have ever had it your blood will always test positive, as it is an antigen test, but at different levels. Levels of 8 or higher should be followed up with a breath test which will return a positive result only if you are infected. A negative result on the breath test is an indication of not having it. My blood test result was 7.8 five months after triple therapy and a breath test was positive. I have been prescribed quad therapy but am having good results with mastic gum and apple cider vinegar so am delaying the quad therapy.

Bactericidal and anti-adhesive properties of culinary and medicinal plants against Helicobacter pylori.

AIM: To investigate the bactericidal and anti-adhesive properties of 25 plants against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
METHODS: Twenty-five plants were boiled in water to produce aqueous extracts that simulate the effect of cooking. The bactericidal activity of the extracts was assessed by a standard kill-curve with seven strains of H. Pylori. The anti-adhesive property was assessed by the inhibition of binding of four strains of FITC-labeled H. pylori to stomach sections.
RESULTS: Of all the plants tested, eight plants, including Bengal quince, nightshade, garlic, dill, black pepper, coriander, fenugreek and black tea, were found to have no bactericidal effect on any of the isolates. Columbo weed, long pepper, parsley, tarragon, nutmeg, yellow-berried nightshade, threadstem carpetweed, sage and cinnamon had bactericidal activities against H. Pylori, but total inhibition of growth was not achieved in this study. Among the plants that killed H. Pylori, turmeric was the most efficient, followed by cumin, ginger, chilli, borage, black caraway, oregano and liquorice. Moreover, extracts of turmeric, borage and parsley were able to inhibit the adhesion of H. pylori strains to the stomach sections.
CONCLUSION: Several plants that were tested in our study had bactericidal and/or anti-adhesive effects on H. Pylori. Ingestion of the plants with anti-adhesive properties could therefore provide a potent alternative therapy for H. pylori infection, which overcomes the problem of resistance associated with current antibiotic treatment.

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.

I was recently treated with an antibiotic regimen for a serious H Pylori infection that was discovered because of an increase in my CEA levels. A blood test done 5 days after finishing the antibiotics showed a severe (50%) spike in the CEA level. My doctor doesn't know if that is normal and is a result of the H Pylori die off or if it indicates something else. Previous to the treatment the CEA was increasing at about 5% per month and presented a concern that my colon cancer was returning. No positive results for cancer were found and we are quite curious if this CEA increase is normal. If anyone knows, please advise me. If not, I need to wait until I have my next CEA test and see where it is a month later. Thank you.
