Natural Cure for Helicobacter Pylori Bacteria


Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped bacterium commonly found in the stomach. The bacteria's shape and the way they move allow them to penetrate the stomach's protective mucous lining, where they produce substances that weaken the lining and make the stomach more susceptible to damage from gastric acids.
The bacteria can also attach to cells of the stomach, causing stomach inflammation (gastritis), and can stimulate the production of excess stomach acid. Over time, infection with the bacteria can also increase the risk of stomach cancer.
Although it is not known how H. pylori infection is spread, scientists believe it may be contracted through food and water.

Symptoms
  • Gastritis or peptic ulcer disease
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Bloating
  • Burping
  • Burning
  • Gnawing
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting (vomit may be bloody or look like coffee grounds)

Do a simple acid test at home. This test is an economical way for you to ascertain if you have too much or too little acid in your stomach. Do this test first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything else.
Method: Mix a quarter teaspoon of fresh Bicarbonate of Soda into a small glass of warm water. Swallow the contents of the glass and relax for a few minutes (Note that this test is effective only if done on an empty stomach first thing in the morning).
Home Test results: If you belch dramatically and within one minute of swallowing this mixture, it is likely you have too much acid. If it takes two to three minutes to belch, your levels of acid are probably normal. If it takes longer than five or six minutes to belch, it is very likely that you have lower than normal levels of stomach acid.


Drink Water
I cured a very bad case in three days simply by drinking water... lots of water. I started by drinking two 12 oz. glasses every hour for three or four hours and then went to one glass every hour for the rest of the day. As the pain subsided I lengthened the time between drinks to two hours, then three, etc. until I reached three times a day. 

Mastic Gum

Mastic, also known as Mastica, is the gum that comes from a species of Greek pistachio tree.  It has been used in Greece for hundreds of years as a remedy for a broad range of gastro-intestinal disorders. It was also a very important incense in the ancient world throughout many cultures.
Recent studies demonstrate that Chios mastic induces apoptosis and possesses anti proliferative activity in colon cancer cells. Mastic oil from Pistacia lentiscus has been recently shown to exert also anti-tumor growth activity through inhibition of cancer cell proliferation.

Raspberries

  • Raspberries have one of the highest concentrations of ellagic acid, a powerful disease-fighting substance. This phytochemical can be found in blueberries, strawberries and certain nuts and has been shown to be antiviral, anti carcinogenic, anti mutagen and antibacterial. Ellagic acid destroys the offending stomach bacteria. This powerful phytochemical is preserved no matter how raspberries are cooked or frozen and is an effective natural combatant of the bacteria.

Broccoli

  • A Japanese study in April of 2009 found that broccoli is an effective natural remedy of the H. pylori bacteria. This study has since been further proven. In the trial, it was found that sulforphane in broccoli sprouts reduced the colonies of H. pylori bacteria in test subjects. Sulforphanes, similar to ellagic acid, have antimicrobial, anticancer and anti diabetic properties. Because symptoms returned when broccoli supplementation ceased, it can be assumed that continued addition of the antimicrobial sulforphanes to the diet occur.

Cinnamon

  • A 1998 Israeli study found that extracts of cinnamon helped the stomach in its fight against H. Pylori. In the study, cinnamon extracts inhibited urease enzymes from catalyzing reactions in H. Pylori cells. This keeps the H. Pylori from performing all of their necessary functions. The cinnamon was found to work as well as a common antibiotic. There are several other substances that have been touted for their abilities to counteract H. Pylori, for example, herbs like garlic and ginger, oils such as coconut oil and oregano oil and apple cider vinegar. However, there is little proof in a scientific trial. Consult your doctor before using any of these unverified natural methods.

Manuka Honey

The pH of honey is commonly between 3.2 and 4.5. This relatively acidic pH level prevents the growth of many bacteria. The non peroxide antibiotic activity is due to methylglyoxal (MGO) and an unidentified synergistic component. Most honeys contain very low levels of MGO, but manuka honey contains very high levels. The presence of the synergist in manuka honey more than doubles MGO antibacterial activity. Antioxidants in honey have even been associated with reducing the damage done to the colon in colitis.

Onions and Garlic

Garlic cloves are used as a remedy for infections(especially chest problems), digestive disorders, and fungal infections such as Candida albicans. Garlic can be used as a disinfectant because of its bacteriostatic and bacteriocidal properties. Onions have anti-inflammatory, anti-cholesterol, anticancer, and antioxidant properties.

Ginger
Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of “stomach problems,” including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, nausea caused by cancer treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite.
Fresh ginger is used for treating acute bacterial dysentery, baldness, malaria, poisonous snake bites, rheumatism, migraine headache, and toothaches.
 
Mint


Because of its menthol, mint has a very good action over the digestive system, causing a small anesthesia of the gastric mucous membrane. It also stimulates digestion.
Mint can treat diarrhea, gastric fever or toxic infections. It stimulates the biliary secretion and helps the digestion of fats.
 
Nettle tea

Various types of Nettle have been studied for their effects on prostate hypertrophy, diabetes mellitus, rheumatic disease, hypertension, gastrointestinal symptoms, osteoarthritis, diarrhea, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, pain, constipation, gastrointestinal disease, headache, nausea, common cold, arthritis, asthma, bleeding, respiratory tract disease, allergic rhinitis, kidney disease, prostate cancer, skin disease and urinary tract disease In terms of allergies, nettle contains properties of an antihistamine to be used for treating reactions associated with the respiratory system.

 

Cranberry juice

Improve the body's circulatory system. A daily glass of cranberry juice will treat diseases like cystitis. Provide relief for asthma patients. The condensed tannins in cranberries can inhibit the oxidation of bad cholesterol and as a result protects body against atherosclerosis; tannins are also considered an important contributor to a healthy heart. Acts as bactericide and affects the acidity of the urine and disrupts the development of kidney stone formation. In some people, regular cranberry juice consumption for months can kill the H. Pylori bacteria.
 
Chamomile


Is helpful for a variety of stomach problems. It soothes stomach aches, eases the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, promotes elimination, and assists in overall digestion. It is often found in teas for digestion in combination with peppermint.
Precautions
Some people have serious allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis) to chamomile. If you are allergic to other plants in the same family such as daisy, ragweed, aster, chrysanthemum, or marigold you should use caution when using chamomile.
Chamomile should be avoided during pregnancy because it may act as a uterine stimulant and therefore increase the chance of abortion.
People with bleeding disorders or on blood thinners should avoid chamomile, as it contains coumarin and may increase the chance of bleeding.
