H. Pylori Treatment
The H. Pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) Bacteria
H. Pylori infection occurs when H. Pylori (a bacteria) infects the stomach or the digestive tract. H. Pylori increases acid production causing the protective lining of your stomach to break down. The H. Pylori then makes its way into the stomach lining where it is protected from your immune system. This is one of the factors that makes H. Pylori so difficult to get rid of. Amazingly, this bacteria is thought to currently infect half of the people in the world.
Symptoms of H. Pylori
The vast majority of people with H. Pylori are without any symptoms whatsoever. Children carrying the bacteria are less likely than adults to experience its ill effects. Common symptoms of H. Pylori are:
- Heartburn / acid reflux
- Dull stomach pain
- Difficulty breathing / tightness in chest
Less Common, More Severe:
- Bloody stool
- Bloody vomit
- Sharp, stabbing pain in abdomen
- Difficulty swallowing
These symptoms are typically experienced 2-3 hours after a meal and at night/in the morning when the stomach is empty. They can last from hours to weeks and have a serious negative effect of the lives of H. Pylori sufferers.
Cause of H. Pylori Infection
H. Pylori can be spread from person to person via direct contact with saliva for fecal matter. Water that has not been treated can also be a carrier of the H. Pylori bacteria.
H, Pylori enters your body through the mouth and is automatically carried to your digestive system by your body's natural processes. The bacteria secretes an enzyme that protects it from the harsh digestive acids in your stomach. This is the reason that H. Pylori infection is so common... your digestive system cannot break it down.
H. Pylori Quadruple Therapy
Quadruple therapy is a 7-day doctor-prescribed regime of 3 antibiotics and an antacid or proton pump inhibitor. Of all of the types of H. Pylori treatment, quadruple therapy is shown to be the most effective with an 85-95% cure rate. However, some people with allergies or sensitivities to antibiotics may choose natural treatments instead. As with all antibiotics, quadruple therapy carries with it a very small risk of potentially dangerous side effects.
