Helibactor pylori, or H. Pylori, are bacteria that are found in the stomach and duodenum (upper GI). We all carry these microbes in our GI tract. These otherwise harmless microbes become problematic when our gut flora becomes imbalanced and the cells of the stomach are damaged. Candida overgrowth is a direct cause of H. pylori problems.
Liver congestion is another culprit. When bile and toxins are frequently pushed back into the stomach, the cells become injured and weak and are then more susceptible to damage from pathogenic microbes such as H. pylori, which in this case can even cause ulcers.
H. pylori is also spread through saliva. Remember this when sharing food or kissing your child on the lips, especially if his gut is weak and he has Candida. By the age of six months, many babies already carry H. pylori.
H. pylori are strong, acid-resistant bacteria. Its resistance is so strong that it can survive stomach acid. This makes the stomach produce more acid, which damages the stomach lining. Their corkscrew shape also bores holes in the stomach lining. These factors cause non-stress induced ulcers.
Symptoms are often the same as those who experience stomach ulcers. The most common symptom is stomach pain, but other symptoms may include chronic migraine headaches, fatigue, lack of nutritional absorption, nausea, vomiting, weight gain due to the rise in cortisol, depression, anxiety, bad breath, sinus problems, joint pain, headaches, and lack of mental clarity. As you can see, these symptoms are many of the same that come from Candida albicans.
Tests for H. pylori are available through your practitioners, but I would urge you to use either Genova Labs or Diagnos-Techs lab for this. These give the exact level of detection of the organism, and they are very thorough laboratories. You may request that your practitioner use these companies. These labs will send test kits to your doctor.
There are natural products to eradicate H. pylori. To assist the gut flora and relieve stomach discomfort, either break open into a beverage or chew on one to three of Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic capsules. How many you use will depend on the weight of the individual. By opening up the capsule before swallowing, the probiotics are released directly into the stomach. For other purposes, such as getting the probiotics fed directly to the lower GI or colon, it is best to swallow them, but either way still works.
The solution is to balance gut flora and build the good bacteria, decongest the liver, and eat a healthy diet. However, if additional help is needed to eradicate H. pylori, a natural product that has been known to be helpful is mastic gum or mastica. It has traditionally been used as a healthy food for the gastrointestinal tract. Ask your practitioner and learn muscle testing to determine if a supplement is acceptable for your child’s body and at what dosage.
Natural allergy elimination has been used successfully when there have been acquired allergies due to undigested foods leaking from the intestines through damaged gut lining.
A quality diet is essential to reduce the inflammation and toxic burden on the gut. Remove these 7 most dangerous foods from your child’s diet that contribute to the symptoms of autism by increasing inflammation, and toxic overload on the liver, therefore increasing the level of acidity in the body.
