Hi, does anyone have natural ways to treat h pylori? Diet, supplements etc? Any advice would be wonderful....the bloating, pain, muscle aches in my back, ugh I can do with out it all...my dr wants me to try a natural root first and if no success in 2weeks will treat me...his suggestions probiotic, alo Vera juice...but I am sure there. Must be a need for a diet change in there somewhere and I do not seem to have much successes with probiotics but am totally open to all your wisdom and advice....

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.
