Natural Treatment Overview

Post by nkaufman » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:37 am

Hello,

Yes i know that natural treatments might probably won't work. One of the naturopaths had the following process:

"Here is the herbal protocol I use for h pylori:
mastic, the gum resin of the mastic tree, which kills H pylori. I use this mastic gum formula combined with licorice and zinc to help reduce inflammation and heal the stomach and intestinal lining.
I use this additional mastic gum formula alongside it to bring up the dosage.
I use this glutamine-based formula called GI Revive to soothe and heal leaky gut.
I recommend digestive enzymes alongside treatment, since those with H pylori have compromised digestion.
I often recommend probiotics during treatment, but it depends on the person. I ALWAYS recommend probiotic replacement therapy once the killing phase is complete."

Was wondering what people think of the above?

Am looking to try the above for a few months before going the antibiotic route.

Every since my doctor prescribed floxacin family of antibiotics, I've had nothing but trouble.

Thanks,

The reason that natural product doesnt work is because they dont reach H. pylori in the stomach.

H. pylori is hiding below the thick mucous layer that protects the stomach lining from the gastric juice.

the mucous layer is acting like a shield that protect the H. pylori from all the natural products.

So how does antibiotic work? it's actually absorbed into the blood stream and attack H. pylori while it's drawing nutrient from the stomach cells. Hence, whatever natural product that you are eating, must have the ability to be absorbed into the blood stream and get delivered to the stomach.

I have been struggling with gastritis caused by Helico bacter for five years now. It seems to me like there is nothing I hadn't tried already. I started with meds, but soon realized they are not helping. Then I tried to alter my diet by eating just simple food which does not cause pain stomach, but then I lost a lot of weight and became anemic. After rotating this yes med/no med cycle, I have finally found a diet that works for me - keto diet. It is a low carb diet and I have been measuring my daily calories intake by using this keto calculator https://healthiack.com/keto-calculator. If you are interested, the internet is full of keto diet articles, with its pros and cons. keep in mind that every diet is not suitable for everyone, but this option is worth to consider.

i think natural products are more suitable for the recovery stage.

you'll need to first make sure H. pylori is eradicated. otherwise, you'll gastritis is going to be forever there.
