H. pylori infection is often treated with three drugs simultaneously, but not everyone responds favorably. Thankfully there are clinically confirmed natural, food-based alternatives.
pylori (H. pylori) is a bacteria estimated to be found in the body of
two-thirds of the world's population naturally, and usually does not
cause symptoms. But in some cases it can be found as a contributing
factor in ulcers, and may even drive some forms of gastric cancer.
Modern treatment for H. pylori
infection focuses on total eradication using so-called "triple
therapy," which includes two antibiotics and an acid-blocker. Treatment
of this kind, however, often results in antibiotic-associated imbalances
in the gut flora, as well as driving antibiotic-resistant strains of H. pylori
which can cause more serious forms of recurrence. This is one reason
why there is growing interest in natural alternatives to drug-based
treatment, and why we are excited to highlight some of the more
compelling research out there on 'natural cures' to this common problem.
Black Seed (Nigella Sativa): A 2010 study published in the Saudi Journal of Gastroenterology titled, "Comparative
study of Nigella Sativa and triple therapy in eradication of
Helicobacter Pylori in patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia",
found that a dose of only 2 grams of black seed (Nigella Sativa) in
combination with an acid blocker was about as effective (67%) as triple
therapy (which includes an acid blocker, and two antibiotics) in
treating H. pylori infection. Black seed has been studied to have value
in a wide range of conditions. Consult our black seed database page for more information.
