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.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
