Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a very common bacteria. In fact, it is estimated that 50 percent of the world population are infected with it, some of them without even knowing it. These bacteria thrive in the stomach and the digestive tract and hide in the mucus where the immune cells cannot reach them.
In order to thrive, they utilize enzymes and nutrients in the body, dumping waste and toxins in the system at the same time. Thus, they damage the cells and mitochondria, leading to chronic fatigue and inflammation.
In addition, H. pylori has been even classified as a carcinogen (cancer-causing agent) in humans by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
SYMPTOMS OF HELICOBACTER PYLORI INFECTION
While people infected with H. pylori may not have any symptoms, if you do have any of the following, it is recommended to test for bacteria or parasites:
- Acid reflux
- Dark stools
- Low red blood cell count (anemia)
- Malnutrition that leads to deficiencies
- Cell injury and inflammation
- Frequent belching and flatulence
- Gas and bloating
- Abdominal pain
- Stomach or peptic ulcers
- Stomach or peptic ulcers
- Bad breath
- Skin problems, such as acne rosacea
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT OF H. PYLORI
Typically, doctors will prescribe you several antibiotics to kill the bacteria. In most cases, they are prescribed for two weeks. In some people, antibiotics are not able to completely wipe out the bacteria, so they will be prescribed stronger medications. It has been scientifically shown that about 20 percent of patients will have recurring infections despite the antibiotics.
HELICOBACTER PYLORI NATURAL TREATMENTS
Follow the 2-step natural treatment which works wonders for helicobacter pylori, without any adverse effects.
Step 1: Gastrointestinal Cleanse
It is very important to begin with a gastrointestinal cleanse in order to clean out the tract, given that H. pylori hide and are “protected” by mucus so that your immune cells cannot reach them. A gastrointestinal cleanse involves drinking plenty of high fiber drinks that are extremely effective at exposing these bacteria by cleaning out the tract.
Step 2: Parasite Cleanse
Once the bacteria are exposed, natural parasiticides that you consume will be capable of making contact with the bacteria to eliminate them for good. A parasite cleanse completely destroys all parasites, bacteria, yeasts, and fungus.
The parasiticides are herbs that should be taken in small and safe dosage to kill the harmful microbes. Taking more does not mean better as killing too much of the bacteria may cause a Herxheimer (die-off) reaction.
NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS TO COMBAT H. PYLORI
Along with doing a gastrointestinal and parasite cleanse, you might incorporate any of the foods below, which help get rid of the bacteria and kill off any other microbes like yeasts, fungi, and parasites.
Broccoli sprouts: It stops the growth of H.pylori and reduces the risk of gastritis in those infected with the bacteria. It is recommended to take 2.5 ounces (70 grams) a day for two months.
Green Cabbage: It has some anti-bacterial activities that are very powerful.
Coconut oil: Its acids break down microbes’ cell membranes and prevent them from growing and multiplying.
Manuka honey: It effectively eradicates over 250 clinical strains of bacteria.
