Helicobacter Pylori Natural Remedies: What can I take that's natural to cure my Helicobacter Pylori? My doctor has prescribed me 3 antibiotics and my H.pylori is low. She did a blood and stool test.

There was a point of time when stress was the biggest cause of stomach ulcers and other digestion problems. While stress still stands as one of the major causes of stomach upsets and ulcers, Helicobacter Pylori has now replaced it as the commonest cause. Today Helicobacter Pylori has become one of the major causes for duodenal and peptic ulcers.

The only way to inhibit the bacteria is to raise the acidic levels in the stomach lower the usual pH levels. If you are able to maintain normal acidic levels in your stomach, chances are you won't be plagues by this disorder. However consumption of alcohol, coffee or drugs that lower the stomach acid levels can cause H. Pylori. High levels of calcium or magnesium in the blood levels aid in lowering the pH levels of the stomach and therefore cause the disease.

However, it is indeed unfortunate that those who suffer from lowered levels of acidity experience heartburns, nausea, bloating and burping, which they assume are symptoms of increased acidity. As a result, they take antacids and other drugs to lower stomach acidity. When the stomach acidity gets further lowered, the H. pylori activities get increased. Peptic ulcers and gastric cancers can develop in these heightened conditions of low acidity.

Some forms of arthritis and anemia are also spurred by the H. Pylori infections. In addition to this, H. Pylori can also cause vitamin B12 deficiencies. If you are already suffering from heart diseases or arteriosclerosis, there are good chances that the condition may get further deteriorated. There are also grave implications if you have asthma, headaches, chronic migraines and arterial fibrillation.

The antibiotics used in this condition may lead to further complications for those who already have asthma or heart conditions. There have been instances where many patients showed symptoms of asthma after their medication even though they had never experienced them before. However when drugs to increase acidity levels were administered, the symptoms seemed to vanish completely.

There are home remedies that you can use to control the condition and maintain normal pH balance in your stomach. Regular intake of garlic, onions and other food stuff rich in sulphur can help balance the pH levels. Licorice, cinnamon and foods rich in vitamin C are also beneficial. Many people claim to have been cured of their condition by regular intake of foods made in coconut oil or spicy food like peppers. These food stuffs aid in eliminating Helicobacter Pylori from the stomach.

Helicobacter Pylori natural remedies

Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori is a bacteria that infects various parts of the digestive system. It also causes ulcers, gastritis, and cancers. H. pylori is a contagious infection and is generally caused due to consumption of contaminated water and food, and continual stress. Maintaining a hygienic environment helps in reducing the risk of H. pylori. These bacteria can also lead to arthritis, anemia, and Vitamin B12 deficiency.

The following are some of the home remedies and precautions to treat Helicobacter pylori:

  • Use garlic and onions daily.
  • Increase your intake of cinnamon, hot chilly pepper, and foods containing Vitamin C.
  • Avoid supplements that have excessive amounts of calcium and magnesium. These lower the stomach acid levels.
  • Cut down on coffee consumption, as it also aggravates the problem of Helicobacter pylori.
  • Drink pineapple juice with food or sip it throughout the day. This helps in improving general digestion also.
  • Drink 10 to 15 glasses of water everyday.

If the symptoms of H. Pylori last for more than two weeks, or if you have other symptoms like weight loss, nausea after you eat, or consistent stomach pain, consult your doctor to rule out development of ulcers and other serious ailments.
