A Natural Approach To Health
Living With H. Pylori
I had a question the other day about H. pylori.
Helicobacter pylori is a type of bacteria that’s a major cause of stomach and upper small intestine ulcers.
Infection with H. pylori may also increase your risk of stomach cancer.
H. pylori bacteria can cause ulcers by growing in the lining of your stomach, producing inflammation and causing your stomach and intestinal lining to be more easily damaged by stomach acid.
Not everyone infected with H. pylori develops an ulcer.
An additional factor—one that can’t always be identified—may be needed to cause an ulcer to form.
Those factors may include:
>The use of certain medicines, like aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
>Excessive alcohol use.
H. pylori bacteria can be eliminated by taking certain antibiotics that are specifically directed at this bacteria.
People who’ve had a peptic ulcer and are infected with H. pylori need treatment to cure the infection and lower their risk of getting another ulcer.
To deal with h. pylori it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water.
*Try drinking a large glass of water to relieve pain.
*Consider any connection to dietary items.
*Beware of antacids with aluminum. Antacids may create a vicious cycle of dependency.
*Explore fresh cabbage juicing to help heal stomach lining.
*Eat smaller more frequent meals.
*Eat lots of life-giving, enzyme and nutrient-rich, fresh, raw fruits and veggies daily (organic whenever possible).
*Eat some RAW vegetables with every meal.
*Consider a liver, gallbladder, and/or colon cleanse.
*Ensure optimal elimination (at least 2 bowel movements per day).
*Consider stress relief techniques.
*Increase intake of Essential Fatty Acids.
*Relax, eat slowly, chew well, appreciate your food.
*Supplement with digestive enzymes.
*Investigate “hidden” allergies, which often trigger or aggravate the condition. Common triggers are dairy, wheat, corn, eggs, gluten, and additives.
*Try to eliminate processed, instant, sugar-laden, chemical-laden, hydrogenated foods.
*Avoid chewing gum, alcohol, caffeine, carbonated beverages, dairy products, large animal protein meals, fried foods, spices.
*Don’t use milk to ease symptoms as this stimulates more acid production.
*Avoid use of aspirin and ibuprofen.
*Minimize drinking right before, during or after meals.
*Consider peppermint, anise, fennel, chamomile, and/or ginger teas.
*Try fresh pineapple or papaya because they are rich in digestive enzymes.
