Light Meals After 4pm   3  0   

Posted by Judy (Woodford, NSW Australia) on 05/02/2009

[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.

[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.

Manuka Honey   3  2   

Posted by Rmr (M, Ct) on 01/21/2013

[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.

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.

How much honey was he taking and how many times a day?

[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!

Has anyone tried tea tree oil? If the honey works then why wouldn't the essential oil work? I have been doing some research on tea tree oil. It kills gram positive and gram negative bacteria. It is antiviral as well as antifungal. Has anyone ever used it for helicobacter pylori? My cousin is suffering from a horrible ulcer. All of the prilosec in the world will not work. He does not have the health insurance to afford the cost of the tests or the antibiotics. Tea tree oil would be cheaper and safer than antibiotic treatment. If anyone has any info on this subject and how to dose, please respond. Thanks!

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!

[WARNING!]   I don't understand the use of honey. I have read that honey should also be AVOIDED as all sugar (except fruits) feed the Pylori bacteria.

Everything there is to know about helicobacter is already written on this site in ailments section. You are not going to kill it, if that is what you want, you keep it under control. Nobody knows its role in human body. Just like you can't and should not kill all bugs in your body you should not try it with Hpylori. Change diet, take control of symptoms with DGL and seabuckthorn oil. Google essential oils for Hpylori. Some oils are extremely effective against it, but keep in mind, it have got to be therapeutic grade oils, over 95% of essential oils do not fulfill therapeutic standards. One drop is all you need. 3 month course of Hpylori suppression and diet change should take care of its population, which should be the goal.

Honey releases peroxide when digested, that is why manuka or any honey suppresses H.P.

You can even lighten your hair with honey.

[NAY]   I tried the manuka honey for acid reflux and gastritis, however, it did not work for me. It actually gave me sour stomach really bad. I was taking the recommended 1 tsp. 20 minutes before a meal. It's also very expensive. Liciorice DGL is working for me.

[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.

Mastic Gum   2  1   

Posted by Lena (Minneapolis, MN) on 02/02/2015

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

Posted by Al (Alvena, Saskatchewan, Canada) on 07/27/2014

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.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I had H.Pylori for 10 years and tried triple therapy, anti biotics, PPI, etc. Nothing resolved my issue. I wanted to try natural remedies and searched the web and found mastic gum eliminates hpylori and cures gastritis. 3 weeks back I ordered mastic gum 1g. each capsule and taking one in the morning and one evening, from the third day itself I started feeling better. And now I am very happy, dont know it cured hpylori or not as I have to go for a urea breath test or stool test. But I am feeling much better now. Will keep you posted after my test. I will recomend this to anybody suffering from gastritis or ulcers. Feel free to ask me if you need any more details. Thanks

I feel that this is too much for him to take but we are hoping that we will be able to cure it. Did you take the mastic gum while your in antibiotic pills? Please inform me the result of your breath test. Were you able to get rid/cure the h pylori?

Mastic Gum, Colloidal Silver, Yogurt   2  0

[YEA]  I wrote a few weeks ago about taking colloidal silver, mastic gum, yogurt and prilosec for H Pylori. After taking it for approximately 5 weeks, my recent stool antigen came back positive - I do feel somewhat better, but obviously the bacteria is still present. Just an update... I may try ACV or Oil of Oregano.

Hey Susan,
I think your problem is that you're over doing it with the prisolec.. U only need to take 1 per day... It supposedly contains a small amount of aluminum and another substance that u shouldn't take too much of in your condition with the H. Pylori bacteria. Hope this helps, let me know how you feel afterwards.

Mastic Gum, Digestive Aids   2  1   

Posted by Beechee Queen (San Bernardino, California) on 08/05/2010

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with H. Pylori and put on antibiotics and all kinds of medications for over 7 months it was getting so bad I literally stopped eating meals and lived on bananas and oatmeal for fear of the returning belching, gas, bloating, indigestion the antibiotics and endless prescriptions didn't help. Then I searched for alternative remedies and came across a couple of promising cures so I went and bought 3 products hoping that at least one might work. And 3 to 4 days later I noticed that I did not have any more burping, gas, indigestion, or bloating.. It was mastic gum and some digestive aid for healing the stomach lining. It worked I have never had a single symptom since and that was over 3 years ago. It is a sap from a tree that draws out and kills the pylori. I would definitely give this a try.

I would like to know what is the digestive aid that you took. What is the name of it. I have read several different reviews on here - many people discuss remedies that deal with the symptoms - but do not cure the infection. That is like saying I have a big gash in my skin that hurts everyday and treating for pain. I do not want just the pain to be gone, I want the cure. I am not allergic to anything that I am aware of and I have tried Manuka Honey (1 teaspoon full) - I had an immediate allergic reaction, my body started to itch everywhere for 2 days.

I am thinking to try the Garlic and Broccoli Sprout method. According to the John Hopkins study: "Citing their new "demonstration of principle" study, a Johns Hopkins researcher and an international team of scientists caution that eating sprouts containing sulforaphane did not cure infection by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori). They do not suggest that eating this or any amount of broccoli sprouts will protect anyone from stomach cancer or cure GI diseases

This is in regards to the comments about H-Pylori and Mastic Gum. Several years ago our teen son became very ill. He had pain of the stomach, bloating, and overall did not feel well. We took him to regular doctor who without running any tests prescribed over the counter products to relieve pain... This was not effective... Time went on, we revisited the doctor with no good results, and our son became increasingly ill, losing nearly 40 pounds. We became alarmed and took him to another doctor who immediately sent him to a gastro specialist who placed him on antibiotics after finding not only H-Pylori but the accompanying ulcers in his stomach. Much damage had been done. Antibiotic therapy did not eradicate the H-Pylori and we were told after more than two rounds of antibiotics that they had done what they could.

A friend of ours who is a health researcher, when he heard about our problem, guided us to Mastic Gum. Our son was put on it, and withing thirty days began to respond positively to the therapy. This was a miracle! Unfortunately, the ulcers had been there a long time and needed healing. This process has taken years... Our son still has problems when he eats the wrong thing but he continues to do what he can...

Side note - antibiotics were not helpful at all and we also administered other products to get his flora back to normal. Now to try the pine nut oil....

[NAY]   I can't speak for Mastic Gum - yet. It is next on my list to try as I have had HP for 10 years on and off. The "off " being on anti biotics but the HP always comes back. Let me warn people against taking Manuka honey. I tried it as some said it had been helpful. It was the exact opposite and I thought I would have to go to hospital. HP loves the sugar. Manuka DOES heal external wounds magnificently though. Another failure is Grape fruit seed extract as a cure. It could conceivably be a preventative.

[YEA]   To: Lynn from Oregon: I beleived I had a bleeding ulcer in my lower stomach, as I was getting black bowel movements.. I stumbled onto virgin pine nut oil, heard a 97% heal rate with this oil try it. I took it immediately and within a week, my stools were back to normal brown, and normal bowel movements, so I drank each bottle for a month, so at the end of 2 months, I ordered 2 more bottles just to finalize this healing, which is working on me... I am also taking mastic gum starting today for a 30 day run at 2 pills a day. H. Pylori is tough to get rid of, so try the natural things that work, coconut oil raw, also I am taking probiotic and enzyme tabs each day to restore ph balances, and also as a last resort, epazote herb tea, known as Mexican tea, will kill parasites, H. Pylori, fungal bacteria, etc, as the Mexican people actually use the herb in their foods to stay free of digestive problems. Only drink 1/4 cup of tea once a day, for 3 days, stop, resume 2 weeks later and repeat.. See if that cures it, if not wait a week and try the formula again... It is a very strong tea and if overdrank could have some side effects, so drink 1/4 cup once a day only! Too many Doctors confuse the public and misdiagnose these problems. This is common knowledge I have shared, so use at your discretion. However, I am taking all of the above in stages to get rid of H. Pylori. Good health! ps: I have spent around $200 so far.

Matula Tea   5  4   

Posted by Linda (Orlando, FL) on 01/31/2009

[YEA]  I am a nurse, and about a year ago I was seriously ill. The doctors did every test... then blood test which tested positive for H-pylori... I was soooo desperate for a cure... because I could not tolerate the "standard" treatment of antibiotics, antacids; I turned to the internet and found Matula Tea... it saved my life. You have to understand this nasty bacteria had me bedbound for 6 weeks... with one 2 day stay in the hospital for dehydration. After one month of taking the tea, I was tested again and no sign of H-Pylori. I started to feel "Alive"again.

But here I am yet again with the bacteria. I believe I know the source now, because people too can be carriers of this disease with no symptoms. Well this time I decided to try the "Standard treatment" and had a severe allergic reation to the antibiotics, and still have H-pylori positive. I have learned my lesson, I am ordering Matula Tea once again, and the person who I believe infected me is to be tested and treated.
