H. Pylori (Helicobacter) is a pretty common bacterium that lays dormant in our digestive tract. More than 50% of the world’s population is infected with this bacterium and most people aren’t even aware of it. The bacterium lives in the intestinal lining of the digestive tract where mucus and immune cells can’t harm it, which is why the infection is difficult to resolve.
H. Pylori feeds on nutrients and enzymes in order to survive, at the same time dropping waste in the intestines which damage our mitochondria and cells and can cause numerous problems including inflammation and fatigue.
H. Pylori can be pretty dangerous when it overgrows in our body and has even been classified as a carcinogen. Although the infection doesn’t usually manifest through specific symptoms, it can be identified by the following signs:
- Acid reflux
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
- Cell inflammation
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Dark stool
- Excess gasses
- Bad breath
- Acne, rosacea and similar skin problems
- Peptic ulcers
- Abdominal cramps and pain
The conventional treatment for Helicobacter Pylori usually involves antibiotics. However, antibiotics are neither a long-term solution or an effective treatment, as they don’t work for everyone. They won’t stop the bacteria from spreading fast, which can result in serious health complications. According to statistics, antibiotics help in only 20% of the cases.
Luckily, there are many natural remedies which can destroy the bacteria and prevent it from wreaking havoc in our system. Below we have 2 simple natural remedies which can stop the spread of H. Pylori and clean it out of your intestines.
As H. Pylori is protected from the mucus in the digestive tract, cleaning the gastrointestinal tract of mucus is the first step you should try. You can do this by consuming fiber-rich drinks that can clean the GI tract and expose the bacteria.
Once you’re done with the gastrointestinal cleanse and the bacterium is exposed, the next step is to destroy it. To do this, you should drink antiparasitic herbal tea blends (wormwood for example) which will destroy H. Pylori and any other bacterium in your GI tract.
Besides these remedies, it’s also a good idea to add some antiparasitic plants and foods in your diet which will eliminate the bacterium and clean your digestive tract. Here are the best choices:
Green cabbage has powerful antibiotic properties which can destroy H. Pylori and even some superbugs.
Take 70 gr. of Broccoli sprouts per day for 2 months to eliminate the bacterium and reduce the risk of gastritis caused by the infection.
Coconut oil contains powerful acids that can break down the membranes of the cells and prevent the bacterium from multiplying and spreading.
Manuka honey is among the best natural antibiotics and can kill various strains of bacteria including H. Pylori.
