To treat H.Pylori (confirmed by an Endoscopic biopsy), I sought out my Naturopath, who prescribed Mastic Gum and Probiotics.
Probiotics were taken 30-60 minutes before breakfast, and at bedtime on an empty stomach.
Mastic Gum (aka Mastica Chios) was 1-2 capsules (400mg each) twice a day, on an empty stomach between meals (for the first 5 days start with one capsule, then raise to two capsules if well tolerated); until the bottle of 120 capsules was finished. T
wo months later, I asked my Physician to requisition the urea breath test, which confirmed I was free of H.Pylori. I never did tell my physician that I did not fill his prescription for two antibiotics plus an acid blocker. I sought to try an alternative to his treatment first, as I had read that low stomach acidity (not to mention antibiotics) can wreak havoc with your gut bacteria, and lead to a plethora of health issues.
Very glad it worked, and that it saved me from taking an unnecessary round of antibiotics!
