Helicobacter pylori infection

Helicobacter Pylori is a bacteria located in the first part of the small intestine just below the stomach. Bacteria can lead to stomach illnesses including heartburn, bloating, nausea, gastritis and ulcers in the stomach and duodenum. Infection with Helicobacter pylori is the most common cause of gastritis and peptic ulcers. H. pylori infection is usually acquired from ingesting contaminated food and water and through person to person contact. It was first discovered by testing gastric ulcers.

The most common helicobacter pylori symptom is burning pain in the abdomen between the breastbone and the belly button. The pain often occurs when the stomach is empty, between meals or it can occur at any other time. It may last from 10 minutes to hours and may be relieved by eating food or taking antacids. Less common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, or loss of appetite.

Tests to detect helicobacter pylori include urea breath tests, blood antibody tests, stool antigen tests and endoscopicbiopsies.

      After multiple trips to the ER thinking I was having a heart attack for shortness of breath, tremors and fatigue....I tried Jarrow Mastic Gum. It kills h pylori. It's some type of bark that grows on trees in Greece and can be ordered online through All Star Health. Jarrow is the best brand. In the name of God, I am thankfull I found this stuff. Prescribed antibiotics make h pylori it worse. Please try Jarrow Mastic Gum it if you have h pylori.
