H Pylori is a BIG deal- and may not simply go away with diet change and probiotics- in fact it mostly will not go away without intervention. im not so sure i would suggest for everyone to do Aloe Vera juice- it can be bad for some people..

anyways- usually western docs treat H Pylori with STRONG antibiotics for 6 weeks. sometimes 2 different kinds. its a real stubborn bacteria- hard to kill. and loves to return in LOW acid stomachs.

that being said, because i end up so much sicker when i take regular antibiotics, i tried to go natural when i had an ulcer- i took GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract). bought it at whole foods, tho im sure you can order it online. it's a natural antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, etc etc. i took 15 drops in 8oz of water 3 times a day for a month. i had intended to take it for 6 weeks- but it's bitter and annoying- so i think after a month i got lazy. within a week the burning was gone.. but u must take it for AT LEAST 4-6 weeks- as it's H Pylori. so, it worked for me. JUST MAKE SURE u read the instructions and DILUTE properly- as it is ver potent- and could hurt u. even tho its natural- it's just very strong. ***dont ever use it in the Netti Pot, it burned my nose

**i also took Zantac BARELY, but especially at night- to prevent the acid from doing major damage- but i did not stay on it long- if you take antacids on a regular basis- you will create a LOW stomach acid environment- and then the hpylori will start nesting again.

i also took Pepto Bismol liquid to sooth my stomach. OH- and cranberry juice- helps to kill them- i may have waited till the 2nd week so i wasnt irritated.

also broccoli sprouts is a good preventive food - keeps the Hpylori from setting up camp.

good luck!

PS- ive heard the GSE can possibly kill some good bacteria- so make sure you're eating yogurt and taking probiotics. i did this- and im sure it does NOT kill them all like regular antibiotics do- cause i never had any adverse conditions come up

I successfully treated my H. Pylori infection with mastic gum, which kills that bacteria and heals the stomach. I also took L-glutamine and turkey rhubarb tincture to heal my stomach. Probiotics won't help heal your stomach, but they will help repopulate your intestines with good bacteria, which crowd out bad bacteria in the intestines. Aloe vera may heal your stomach ulcers, but may not kill the H. Pylori bacteria. Unless you kill that bacteria, you will continue to have stomach sensitivity, if not ulcers.

I agree with the above posters. I would also use all the supplements they described, plus I used ginger to sooth my stomach, raw garlic and Betaine HCI to get my stomach acid higher.

    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
