[YEA]  H2O2 cured H. Pylori (bacteria)

I used 3-5 drops of hydrogen peroxide in 8 oz. distilled water. First day 3 drops, then the next day i used 5 drops. The third day bacteria passed through my colon with a splash of blood. Simple and amazing!

Keep Your pH Alkaline   0  0   

Posted by Howaurayou (Las Vegas, NV) on 04/28/2009

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  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.

Light Meals After 4pm   3  0

[YEA]  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]  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.

[YEA]   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.

Manuka Honey   4  1

[YEA]  I just wanted to get you to search manuka honey and how it beats heliobacter pylori every time!! Please do that. I am certain it will help. Good luck.

[YEA]  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.

Where do you buy the Manuka honey?

EC: Hi Mary,

Most health food stores carry Manuka Honey. Grocery stores like Whole Foods or Sprouts will carry it or you can read the various reviews and buy it online at, etc.

[NAY]  I tried the best Manuka Honey to help with H Pylori and it did not work for me. Suffering from stomach issues for 4 years now.

Posted by Alice (Lowell, Ma) on 11/28/2009

[YEA]  I first tried Pine Nut Oil. It gave me some relief, but not satisfied I decided to try manuka honey since doctors were not paying attention to the problem and was told to take meds for the rest of my life. I bought the Manuka Honey ___ ___ and after a few days my pains went away and I was able to eat again. Since then I have been good. I took the honey for 1 month, and I only take it once in a while now. A good diet is also recommended since certain foods will also make the condition worse. Every body is different so this migth not work on all, but i'm glad I tried the honey. Other brands did not do what Manuka did for me.

[YEA]  To totally eradicate H. Pyroli and kill it off within a month - take a dessert spooonful of Manuka Honey UMF 10+ or higher (it goes up to 20+) before meals 3 times and and a spoonful before you go to bed at night. This honey (made from Bees in NZ who feed on the tea tree bushes) has antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal, antiinflamatory properties and can cure most stomach problems such as Barrets oesephogus, gastritus and stomach ulcers. It can also be used on bed sores and mrsa wounds. Look it up on the internet to see how it has worked for lots other people. Hospitals in UK and Australia are using it to cure MRSA wounds and ulcers on legs, etc. Good Luck!

Mastic Gum   5  1   

Posted by Masha (Pasadena) on 05/25/2015

[YEA]  Mastic gum has been effective with me. I am taking antibiotics prescribed by my GI/Gastroenterologist plus natural treatment from a natural practitioner. The mastic gum bottle finished and I was waiting for my natural practitioner to get another bottle and I did not think much of it. That night, I had a very bad night, going to the bathroom every two hours. The next day, I drove for 1 hour to buy mastic gum and I am feeling much better now, the antibiotics have not worked so I will get in touch with my GI/Gastroenterologist for further treatment.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Mastic gum made me so sick. Dizzy, woozy, and a Lingering headache for a week! Did anyone else experience this?

I have had two previous antibiotic treatments for H-pylori infections. The last treatment resulted in my CEA level having a drastic increase. I just recently found out that if you have an antibiotic resistant strain of H-pylori that the common treatment just allows the H-pylori to increase the number of bacteria present due to the lowering of the acidity in the stomach. The same thing happens when you consume baking soda to reduce stomach/blood acidity to eliminate a yeast infection if H-pylori is present.

The big problem for me is that I have had colon cancer and CEA is an indicator for recurrence of cancer and is also produced by H-pylori. My CEA was gradually increasing and was close to 20 (normal is less than 3), so I had a gastroscopy and colonoscopy which resulted in finding the H-pylori infection. Treatment resulted in a spike in CEA so with no answers from my doctor I started taking baking soda to ensure there was no yeast infection in my blood. That resulted in a further spike in the CEA and stopping the baking soda resulted in a return to a slow increase in CEA.

After extensive reading I found that acid reduction does increase H-pylori reproduction and found out about mastic gum and its natural ability to kill H-pylori. I started taking mastic gum two weeks ago and supplemented that with one to two ounces of apple cider vinegar daily, with the mother, to increase stomach acidity resulting in a small drop in the CEA from a high near 40. This test was done 11 days after the first dose of mastic gum and showed a 4% drop in that time frame. I have also seen a cessation of some symptoms as a result.

What I have read about mastic gum it is recommended that it be used for three months to completely eliminate H-pylori. Anyone that has antibiotic treatment for H-pylori should have a CEA test before and after and if the CEA increases should be retested for H-pylori and consider an alternative treatment. It is now ten months since the CEA first started to go up and the cancer specialists are talking about palliative care for me and don't even have a cancer diagnosis. This nasty bacteria has some not commonly known aspects that can point to other problems which result in it getting worse. Be careful about using antacids and acid reducers with H-pylori. I am now waiting on a PET scan to show that I don't have any cancer while I continue the mastic gum treatment.

[YEA]  Mastic Gum is excellent for getting rid of H-pylori which causes acid reflux and Gerd. Antacids do not work. Mastic Gum 500 mg 2 times a day for 3 months. Do yourself a favor and stop your stomach problems.

[NAY]  Today is 9-22-2013... I have been on mastic gum for 5 days and it DID NOT WORK for me.. 2nd day I threw up breakfast and lunch, and had diarrhea badly in evening. So after day 5 I have stopped taking it and am now waiting for the following: So I researched cold press virgin coconut oil and I stumbled on a study by a doctor of 148 people given this type of coconut oil daily, a large spoonful of cold oil once a day for 30 days, was monitored by a doctor and he gave his response at the end of that 30 day period and he concluded that CVO erased H. Pylori , Candida, and parasites as well as a bunch of fungal disorders.. He was quite astonished at actual results from the 148 people... There were so many testimonials of good results using this for 30 days, most everybody agreed to take it for lifetime daily... So I ordered 5 pounds of CVO and will start taking it as soon as it arrives in a day or two.. I have a duodenal ulcer and constant churning of my stomach with swallowing disorders, 24/7, very hard to eat without regurgitating foamy saliva so I am hoping this will calm my stomach down and heal my tumor and H. Pylori problem as well. I have a dying dog also that I will try to feed it to as well, maybe it will save her life. More comments coming on using Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil to heal digestive disorders from a user.

[YEA]  Went to doctor's office for what I am sure was ulcer. Had the gnawing feeling in my stomach about half an hour after I ate and the other symptoms associated with ulcers. After researching this site, found out that most ulcers are caused by h. Pylori. Tried the Manuka Honey for a while but was not agreeing with me. Tried the Mastic Gum and within three days the gnawing feeling was gone. Took it for 20 days (that was how much I had), two pills in morning about half an hour before I ate anything. Had the die off effects so I did not feel great for a few days but stuck through it knowing it was Herx's. Got tested for h. Pylori after and it came back negative. Got my mastic gum at local health food store.
