H.pylori infection is normally specific to the stomach region only. However, there are some claims that H. pylori may also contribute to diseases related to immune response.

But so far, no evidence has shown that H. pylori has correlation with facial nerves pressure.

I thought H. Pylori alters cooper and zinc etc. things that may affect nerves? Pre-existing conditions might be aggravated ?

This is very interesting. I wonder if hPylori can effect the nervous system causing the lower esophagus sphincter to relax thus causing Gerd?

H. pylori likes iron. Not so sure about H. pylori correlation with nerve disease.

H. pylori is also associated with reflux symptom and causes GERD. But is it because of the nervous system of the lower esophagus sphincter? I am not sure.

Is it true that the gut brain is it's own "nervous system" and that h. pylori and it's biotoxins cross the gut brain barrier? is the esophagus apart of that nervous system or the bodies "main" nervous system?

The gut brain theory is very interesting. We are just scratching the surface of understanding the microbiome and its impact on the gut's brain.

Although H. pylori doesnt colonised the intestine, but they do shed from stomach into the lower guts. Nobody knows if these H. pylori from the stomach cause any harm to the lower guts.
