H. Pylori Natural Treatments
NOTE to Readers: This is one article in a series of articles about H. pylori, a bacteria that can cause a wide variety of health issues from skin problems (Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria, or rash) to migraine headaches. Women with an H. pylori infection may experience more severe morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum) and people who are predisposed to motion sickness or sea sickness may get a lot sicker when they travel due to the presence of Helicobacter pylori in their stomachs.
WARNING: IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE PROTOCOLS OR TREATMENTS LISTED ON THIS WEB SITE:
Most of the people who are reading this article are wondering how to get rid of H. pylori if antibiotics don’t work. Though there are a number of natural remedies for H. pylori treatment, and you can choose from a variety of herbal medicines, foods, and essential oils for H. pylori listed above, below are several protocols for eradicating H. pylori:
PROTOCOL 1: Natural Helicobacter Pylori Treatment:
1.Take Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and Colloidal Silver
Be aware that DMSO and Colloidal Silver, when used together can cure various diseases, not just H. pylori. Please let us know if you have a valuable experience with this combination treatment as a cure for H. pylori infection or for other diseases like arthritis, nerve, or bone disease, or cancer! We’d like to share your story so others can benefit!
DMSO is a substance that makes cells more permeable. As such, it makes certain microorganisms, like the H. pylori bacteria, more vulnerable to medicinal substances like Colloidal Silver. Colloidal Silver has been demonized as a substance that can turn the skin blue (Argyria), but this condition is exceedingly rare. On the rare occasion when it does occur, it is most commonly seen in burn victims who are being treated with hydrated silver salts. Silver is used in conventional medicine in a variety of forms, for example, silver sulfadiazine (Silvadene®) cream. It is also used in photodynamic therapy which uses light waves/energy instead of DMSO to get silver nanoparticles into cells to kill infection.
Photodynamic therapy is costly, you have to go to a qualified doctor to have this kind of treatment, it isn’t usually used on H. pylori (though it does work against some other nasty infections that are otherwise incurable) and you can have the same type of treatment at home by simply combining Colloidal Silver with DMSO.
- Start by taking a smaller dose of DMSO and Colloidal Silver. Take 1/2 of a teaspoon of DMSO with 2 1/2 teaspoons of colloidal silver.
- Increase the dose by 1/2 of a teaspoon of DMSO daily until you are taking 1 tablespoon of DMSO per day in 2 1/2 teaspoons of colloidal silver.
- Take a dose of DMSO with the Colloidal Silver in the morning and in the evening.
Silver has also been used as an antibacterial agent for treating burns and providing antimicrobial properties for catheters. The general population is exposed to silver primarily through drinking water and food. Silver salts may be absorbed by up to 10–20% after ingestion. Occupational inhalation exposure limits for silver or silver compounds are based on argyria, a cosmetic pigmentation of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes that results from long-term systemic exposure to silver or silver compounds.
2.Take high doses of vitamin C – (5000-6000 mg per day for 30 days; thereafter, take 1000-2000 mg of vitamin C daily to prevent re-infection). Taking high doses of vitamin will not cure the infection, but rather it will allow your body to build collagen to make the tissues of your stomach lining stronger. This is essential to prevent perpetual re-infection with H. pylori.
3. Alkalize the body – The simplest and safest way to do this is to purchase a Kangen machine to make highly alkaline water. But there are other, much more affordable ways to alkalize the body that I’ve listed below:
- Eat an alkaline diet for 30 days – aim for a pH of around 8 for 3 weeks.
- Take 1 teaspoon of baking soda 5 times per day, but never within 30 minutes of eating a meal. DO NOT TAKE LESS THAN THE RECOMMENDED DOSAGE OF BAKING SODA EACH DAY. If you do this protocol halfway, you may actually end up boosting H. pylori growth in your stomach.
- Drink Aloe Vera Juice (pH 7-8.5) throughout the day.
- Drink green tea throughout the day (pH 7.0-8.0).
- Follow a Cesium Therapy protocol under the guidance of a knowledgeable health practitioner. Cesium Therapy is a powerful anti-cancer treatment that is highly recommended for individuals who have been diagnosed with stomach cancer.
5. Drink 3-6 cups of Pau d’Arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) tea daily – Pau d’Arco (make sure to use the Tabebuia impetignosa variety), is not only a strong anti-cancer treatment (it was once used in place of chemotherapy and radiation in Brazilian hospitals until Big Pharma threatened the doctors with losing their licenses if they continued to prescribe it), but Pau d’Arco can also cure a wide variety of other diseases. This is strong medicine though so follow the instructions for preparation and don’t take too much of it!
6. Eat steamed foods that are easy to digest along with foods that inhibit the growth of H. pylori.
PROTOCOL 2: A Safe and Natural H. Pylori Hyperemesis Gravidarum Treatment for Pregnancy
If you are pregnant, use this treatment only at your own risk:
- High-dose vitamin C (1000 – 6000 mg daily) – Start with a low dose (500 mg) and slowly increase the dose to 6000 mg per day.
- Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) – Take 30 drops of pharmaceutical grade DMSO daily in clean, filtered water, up to 5 times per day. DMSO is FDA-approved for use during pregnancy. It will be able to penetrate through the biofilm that often shelters H. pylori in the stomach.
- MMS/CDS – Known as Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) or Chlorine Dioxide (CDS), this substance is used in very low-doses to purify water all over the world. Most people have consumed this substance in low doses at some point in their lives. But you can use it at higher doses to treat various diseases and disorders. If you’re pregnant, start slowly with 1/8 of a drop in water hourly and work up to 1 drop hourly for 8 hours per day. Combine it with DMSO to make the treatment stronger and more targeted.
- Cabbage and Carrot Juice – Drink 1/4 of a juiced cabbage daily. Add carrots to sweeten it while boosting the vitamin A content.
- Cranberry Juice – Drink as much sugar-free cranberry juice as you can daily.
- Monolaurin – Start with 750 mg of monolaurin twice daily. Work up to 3000 mg, 3 times per day.
PROTOCOL 3: H. pylori Treatment for Stomach Ulcers
NOTE: If you have a bleeding ulcer, go to an emergency room immediately!
- Shilajit / Humic Extracts / Fulvic Acids / Mumijo – Take 400 mg daily of a high-quality Shilajit supplement to stop ulcers from bleeding while simultaneously treating the H. pylori infection.
- High-dose vitamin C – Start with 1000 mg of vitamin C daily and slowly increase the dose to 6000 mg to allow the body to heal ulcers with healthy tissues.
- Take DMSO with Carica papaya extract – 30 drops of DMSO with 30 drops of Carica papaya 3 times per day — this will heal the stomach ulcers and kill the H. pylori bacteria that may be living under biofilm in the stomach. The Carica papaya will help keep the stomach ulcers from bleeding.
- Eat steamed foods that are easy to digest along with foods that inhibit the growth of H. pylori.
- Drink Aloe Vera Juice and Green Tea throughout the day to keep the stomach environment alkaline.
After you do this protocol and heal your stomach ulcers completely, consider replacing the Carica papaya extract with Patchouli essential oil to treat H. pylori.
PROTOCOL 4: H. pylori Treatment While Taking PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors)
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) play a role in the development of many health problems including Clostridium difficile infections, pneumonia, and stomach cancer. These medications include the following:
- Dexilant (dexlansoprazole)
- Nexium (esomeprazole)
- Prilosec, Zegerid (omeprazole)
- Prevacid (lansoprazole)
- Protonix (pantoprazole)
- Aciphex (Rabeprazole)
If you are already on a PPI for the treatment of GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder) or stomach ulcers, you can continue to take the PPI to alkalize the stomach environment while using natural treatments to kill H. pylori bacteria.
- Follow Protocol 3, numbers 1 through 4 until you’re ready to stop taking the PPI. Then, begin drinking Aloe Vera Juice and Green Tea with your PPI to keep your GERD under control.
Recent studies have shown that certain types of propolis that contain Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE) can inhibit one of the enzymes necessary for the survival of Helicobacter pylori. This may lend credence to the idea that eating honey, particularly, high-quality, unprocessed honey instead of sugar could reduce or prevent infection with H. pylori. And of course, taking CAPE propolis would also be beneficial in curing H. pylori and preventing re-infection.
A Word about Semax for Peptic Ulcers:
Semax is a synthetic peptide that was developed in Russia. It is a nootropic and it has neuroprotective properties. In Russia, it is on the List of Essential Medicines and you should know that Russia tends to be much more progressive than the U.S. in terms of their medical system. There are a lot of Russian treatments and scientific research in medicine that would be of interest to Americans if they only realized how valuable the Russian way of thinking about medicine is. At any rate, Semax is a peptide that’s been used in various ways to treat stroke victims (helping their brain rebuild), but also in the treatment of peptic ulcers.
Research has shown that Semax promotes peptic ulcer healing in patients. It can protect the stomach from infection by H. pylori. By the 14th day of treatment with Semax, 89.5% of patients who were receiving this intranasal medication had recovered from their peptic ulcer in comparison with 30.8% in the control group. Patients receiving Semax were given the 1% solution at 2-4 drops, 3 times per day over the course of 10 days.
