Helicobacter pylori: Did it ever happen to you, to feel anxious without a reason, or to feel that something it’s wrong with your body, even if most of the doctors said you are fine?
You ever have or had symptoms that are not normal in any other stomach or bowel disease like Acid reflux and diarrhea, gas, heartburn, mild-fever and anxiety, fatigue and nausea? If the answer to all this questions is yes, than welcome to bacteria h. pylori illness. I’m not a doctor, but I’m a patient and a researcher. The full name for H. pylori is Helicobacter pylori. H. pylori and its effects on the human body are still very poorly understood.
Helicobacter pylori, can disrupt the mucous lining of the stomach allowing a stomach ulcer to form. Lifestyle factors, such as alcohol abuse, physical and emotional stress, unhealthy eating habits and smoking, cause peptic ulcers and gastritis. Apparently over 60% of people have H. pylori which is usually acquired in childhood, is passed person to person in a variety of ways. Kissing is one of those ways (passed through saliva) as well as unsanitary conditions in food or water. Helicobacter pylori can cause many different symptoms, but most people infected with the bacteria never have symptoms or problems at all. If H. pylori starts to make symptoms, visit a doctor soon for diagnosis and tests. The bacteria can also attach to cells of the stomach, causing stomach inflammation (Gastritis) or peptic ulcer and can stimulate the production of excess stomach acid (G.E.R.D).

Helicobacter Pylori Treatment
The general h. pylori treatment is a triple drug therapy, a mix of two antibiotics and 1 antacid for 2 weeks. You must also do some natural ways of treatment like a diet or stop smoking and drinking alcohol. Dont forget that if you take a strong doses of antibiotics can kill your good bacteria as well, so take some probiotics supplements is always a good idea.
How long does it take antibiotics to start working on Helicobacter pylori Infection?
Symptoms should begin to subside within a few days. The antibiotics may be irritating to your stomach, so it may take a week or two before the GERD subsides. Normally you must go back to hospital after a month for breath and stool tests to see if you are still infected with H. pylori. Once the H. pylori bacteria are gone from your body, the chance of being infected again is very low.
