DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY OTHER DISEASE OR INJURY.
NOTE to the Reader: This is the second article in a series that covers how to treat Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that infects at least half of the population causing a wide range of digestive issues from stomach ulcers and stomach cancer to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). Infection with this bacteria can make the symptoms of morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum) and motion sickness or sea sickness worse than they otherwise would be (taking a manageable problem into the unmanageable zone). Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) can occur as a result of drug treatments prescribed by doctors. And if you have a chronic rash (Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria) and you believe you might be infected with H. pylori, then its very possible that your rash is actually caused by low vitamin C and leaky blood vessels that allow histamine to pass through to the skin (histamine plays a role in producing acids in the stomach). If you have digestive problems or skin problems, then be sure to read the entire series of articles to learn how to treat H. pylori without antibiotics and PPIs.
The stomach is normally a very acidic place. If you’re reading this article, you probably already know this and have had negative experiences with the over-acidity that can cause problems in the stomach and esophagus. In conventional medicine, doctors prescribe a combination of PPIs and antibiotics to eradicate H. pylori. PPIs lowers the acidity level of the stomach, making it more alkaline which is important because when the stomach is at its most acidic (between pH 3 and pH 6), the Helicobacter pylori bacteria changes into different form that’s resistant to antibiotics.
Most scientists who study H. pylori stay within the zone of their expertise and work only with mainstream research that’s been accepted by their peers and deemed worthy of their attention. But anyone who has studied alternative, no-chemo, no-radiation cures for cancer has probably seen or heard about something called somatids. Somatids aren’t visible using regular microscopes. Rather, you have to look at the blood under a Dark Field Microscope to see these things which appear to be nothing more than points of light. But doctors and scientists like Dr. Royal Rife, Dr. Gaston Naessons, Dr. Isaac Goiz, Dr. Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, and more have all independently observed these somatids and they’ve all noted the same thing. The somatids change form (in other words, they’re pleomorphic). And how and what they change into depends on the alkalinity or acidity of the tissues in the body.
Normally, when the body (not the blood, which must always stay within a narrow pH range of 7.35-7.45) is in an alkaline state (above pH 7), somatids exist to stimulate the immune system. They cyclically change into 4 to 6 different shapes that the immune system uses to practice its skills—like a martial artist who trains in the gym so that he/she is ready should he/she ever be attacked on the street.
But when the body is in an acidic state (below pH 7), somatids do a completely different thing. The somatids enter into a much more insidious cycle and begin turning into pathogenic organisms that cause a wide variety of different diseases and symptoms in the body from cancer and diabetes to Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, ulcers, and skin rashes. Whether the somatids affect your digestion or your respiratory system will depend mostly on nutritional deficiencies in the body. Are you deficient in vitamin C? If so, the organs that must constantly regenerate are going to come under attack (the stomach lining must be regenerated often due to the high acidity that can wear away at the tissues in there). Are you deficient in vitamin A? Your vision might be affected first. And if you’re deficient in vitamin B17, also known as amygdalin or the brand name Laetrile, a bitter alkaloid that exists in apricot kernels (the almond shaped thing found inside the apricot pit), peach kernels, plum kernels, grape seeds, and apple seeds, then you’ll probably develop cancer somewhere in the body.
Of course, this is a simplification of things, but you get the idea.
At any rate, though Germ Theory and the idea that we can “catch” an infection from another person is still true, there’s more to this story. In actual fact, we can catch infections from ourselves (so to speak), in that we make our bodies susceptible to infection when our tissue pH becomes acidic.
In summary, there are two things that you’ll need to do to cure H. pylori: alkalize the stomach environment and take high doses (500-6000 mg per day) of vitamin C. But you may want to do more than that and take herbal treatments or drink cranberry juice (which contains high levels of vitamin C as well as substances that make it hard for H. pylori to adhere to the stomach lining) especially if you’ve already been through the ordeal of taking antibiotics and PPIs with no success. We’ve included research on a variety of additional substances that you can use with vitamin C and alkalinity to cure H. pylori in some of the articles listed below.
But FIRST, Pay Attention.
One of the biggest dangers of using any of the treatments mentioned in this series is that you’ll combine them improperly or use them in combination with foods or other plant medicines or even vitamin supplements that could cancel all of the medicines out! Then, you’ll think these substances don’t work. And then Big Pharma wins.
I know, I know. You want to get started NOW. I get it. But don’t be too creative with these substances until you fully understand how they work and why they work. If you don’t want to take the time to learn everything there is to know about the medicines I’m going to describe in these articles, then you need to follow the H. pylori protocol I outline at the end of the series as closely as humanly possible. Otherwise, they may not work.
But I promise, none of the treatments I talk about below will turn your tongue black.
But let’s talk more about how to kill H. pylori in the next article and the natural herbal cures you can use to treat H. pylori without antibiotics.
