H Pylori and CEA Increases

Posted by Al (Alvena, Saskatchewan, Canada) on 03/16/2014

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.

Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide, Triple Strength Ginger Brew, & 4 Drops of Turpentine cured me of H. Pylori:

I had gastritis for about 10 days. I couldn't sleep very well. I read about diets, the do's & don'ts! I took some Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide 3%. I mixed about a teaspoon in 6 oz of water, & drank it at night. I followed that with a Triple strength Ginger Brew, & went to sleep. I felt much better by morning!

To be sure I was finally cured, & done with H. PYLORI gut pains, & burning, I put 4 drops of turpentine in a 12 oz Triple strength Ginger Brew that morning, & H.Pylori, & Gastritis took the poop train down the track towards the colon, & the last stop was Toilet City! 😊 No more gut issues!!!

Hello Mark, Is there a certain type of Turpentine that you used? And Triple Strength Ginger Brew, do you have a recipe for your regular Ginger Brew? I'll triple the strength. Thanks

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!

Hi, what food grade of H202 did you use? Thank you.

EC: That post was written in 2009 when people commonly used a few 35% food-grade peroxide drops in at least 8 oz of distilled water.

Keep Your pH Alkaline

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.

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.

Light Meals After 4pm
Posted by Judy (Woodford, NSW Australia) on 05/02/2009

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.

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.

But, did your H. Pylori get healed and go away completely with this diet. Having a negative test?

Manuka Honey

If the throat infection is Helicobacter Pylori, a very slow growing tough dual skinned bacteria with a tail, then the Manuka Honey would do the job.

But you need to buy Manuka Honey with a MGO rating (Methyglyoxal) rating of at least 80. The MGO rating is calculated when building the batch. Manuka Honey is made in hives put into the bush by helicopters amongst Manuka scrub.

If you get Acid Reflux, this is an indicator that you will be infected with H. Pylori.

Put a teaspoon of the Manuka Honey in your mouth under your tongue each day for 7 days. It will mix with the mucous in your mouth and spread. I would not take Manuka Honey long term after reading Metabolical by Dr Robert Lustig. Methyglyoxal is a result of Fructose processing in the body - he talks about the Maillard Reaction.

But Helicobacter Pylori is a tough bacteria. It can survive in Hydrochloric acid in the stomach and because it exists on the 'skin', antibiotics have trouble getting to it. Helicobacter Pylori is known for being able to infect the mouth, nose, sinuses, oesophagus all the way down to the stomach. It has trouble surviving in the intestines because other bacteria eat it.

When fixing stomach ulcers (caused by H. Pylori) with the Manuka Honey, I found it also cleared infections in my lungs causing Sleep Apnea and my Hay Fever faded away the next spring.

Good Luck.

Hi. Can I ask how many teaspoons and how many times a day you took the honey? Was it before or after meals?

How long did it take to eradicate the pylori, and did it permanently remove it?? Also I'm curious, did you have die-off detox symptoms? I've been taking half a tsp 3 times a day along with colloidal silver. I'm only 3 days into this routine and have actually been feeling worse, but I'm assuming that means that it's working?

Replied by Katzie

It sounds like a Herxheimer Reaction is what you are experiencing. If you are throwing both Colloidal Silver AND Manuka Honey at your H.Pylori, its probably too much all-at-once.

I was advised 1 TSP of Manuka 20-30 mins prior to meals. It worked.

Studies have proven that Manuka honey was able to stop the growth of H. pylori after just 72 hours with a reasonable oral dosage that could be achieved in the stomach (1 tsp 30-45mins before meals).

Manuka honey kills bacteria through a process called ‘osmosis', where the sugars in the honey attract all the water particles from the infectious bacteria that they need to survive, which ensures that they don't.

Healing prayers to you!!

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?

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 amazon.com, etc.

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.

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!

I had h pylori - mastica gum (is not a chewing gum) took 4 capsules before breakfast, lunch & supper and before bed.

I also took marshmallow, cats claw, slippery elm and dgl licorice 3 after each meal for 2 weeks.

Also bought edible clay - 1/4 cup with aloe vera with spring water -take away from other medications other it will bind and be no benefit to you. Take plenty of probiotics too. Take urea test when finished with h pylori. Take plenty of water & cranberry juice to get rid of hp in one's bladder.

I have H-pylori I discovered. 2 months ago I was giving an antibiotic. I don't feel much relief so I was taking 1/4 cup aloe vera gel and 2 capsules mastic gum 3 to 4 time a day and vegetable juice. I was just wondering what food would be the best I eat millet, amaranth and green smoothie with banana and spinach kale with dairy free milk. I would enjoy feed back please for more ideas.

Thank you.

I wish this worked for me. I am what I consider a severe case. Bedridden for weeks. Have had to get IVs, for the dehydration due to the constant vomiting and not being able to eat and drink. I have tried so many things, this was one of them. Did not work for me.

Sherri Lynn

Hey Vonna......

Some of the things that helped me:

Grapefruit seed extract / LDM-100 (direct from Barlow Labs only! ) / having my chiropractor 'adjust' my pyloric valve (it can get irritated and inflamed, which can cause it to spasm & narrow, adding to the problem - caused me lots of vomiting) / drink equal parts George's Aloe Juice & silver mixed together (ex:1 or 2 oz each) / activated charcoal (taken away from any other supplements) / far-infrared heat mat.

I did not follow a specific regimen......Just rotated these different things

Take Care & heal naturally!

Have you tried Manuka Honey yet? Lots of info here, as well as medical studies done showing its efficacy. Best of luck to you. I hope this works. Any brand will do, so please don't get hung up on Brand name or UMF Factor or anything else. Manuka Honey was prescribed by a Naturopath to a friend and it works for her.


LADIES,,,,,,, ORH here and Ozonated water is a sure cure for H. pylori, and you don't need an expensive medical one.

Hey ORH & Bevil......Thanks for that reminder. Got myself a simple generator on-line at Home Depot just recently. Forgot to mention it in my reply to Vonna. (some of my posts are under Sherri Lynn) I am just now getting started with drinking the ozonated water myself. Great stuff......Take Care


I have a small ozone generator with a little bubble stone I can put on the tube and immerse in a glass of water. Got it on Amazon...did not cost much at all.


FORGE ON,,, ORH here and suggest you use distilled water, with lots of ice. Cold water holds more gas than hot water. That is the reason your hot pop bottle fizzes when you open it. A solid works just the opposite. Put sugar in your hot tea, not cold tea. That is the reason all Southern Rednecks order sweet tea. All in the Midwest are moving down here. They come here for a reason........ just accept our life style and don't try to change us. Otherwise, stay where you are. ====ORH====

Mastic Gum, Probiotics

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!
