    were you able to erradicate it? Did you use antibiotic treatment program or try to treat it naturally?

      Hi Diane,
      Oh yes, I've had it and it was just awful!  Please bare with me as I am brand new to hubbing and I'm not sure what's appropriate...I will tell you this tho, I highly recommend doing the antibiotics which was the PrevPac.  If I remember correctly, It was 15 antibiotics a day for like 2 weeks, maybe three weeks.  It's pretty expensive, like $100.  We all have it on our intestines, but we don't all have the symptoms or flare ups.  Usually once you have it, you will likely have it again in your lifetime.  My doctor told me that it's the same thing that you get when you visit Mexico and drink the dirty water..

      I wouldn't recommend treating it naturally because I suffer from chronic infections and I am a big believer in antibiotics.  I usually see tremendous relief within 24 hours.  Good luck!  It says on here no signatures, so I guess I can just tell you that my name is Liddy...I hope that's ok, cuz I don't know what a signature on Hub Pages means.  Could you please tell me?  Thanx so much, and good luck to you!  Hugz!

        Hi Liddy thanks for the response I don't like anitbiotics cause it can become resistant then even harder to get rid of which is why I was wondering about natural treatment options.

        as far as signatures go. I think it is referring to links to your hubpages or any other self promotion.

    I had it and went through a round of antibiotics. I don't know if I still have it or not.

    Hi Diane, I was very sick with this is bug a few years ago and had treatment with antibiotics. I haven't been sick since so it was worth it for me. Everyone is different when it comes to antibiotics so talk to your specialist about your concerns.

    @habee, nice avatar and congrats on 100 again.

    Before H.pylorii was discovered by an Australian doctor in whatever year it was (1980s? 90?) people were treated for a stomach ulcer and told to avoid certain foods etc to cure it.
    Once it was discovered to having been caused by a bacteria, a long course of antibiotics cured millions of people of the 'ulcer' that had bothered them for years.
    If left untreated, h.pylorii can also cause heart disease.
    Take the treatment - antibiotics -and get rid of it as soon as.
    It has nothing to do with dirty water or food, it is just one of those bugs that are around the general population in every country in the world.

    Hey Everyone,
    I suffered from Ulcers which is usually caused by H. Plyori and few years ago. Even though i did not make sure it was caused by H.Plyori, the treatment I used was four glasses of fresh cabbage juice a day for ten days.

    I have a post here on hubpages on it as well.

    I felt relief within about 4 to 5 days and then better after ten. Cabbage juice takes a while to get used to, but a great remedy.

    Apparently it used to be used as the treatment before anti - biotics in most places in the world.
    The best aspect is no side effects from the juice. I react badly to anti - biotics so unless it is an emergency i avoid always.

    I hope this helps.

    ( I recently read Chilli can help ease the pain and help kill h.plyori, but i may be wrong with that one. )
