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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
