H Pylori & Progressive Systemic Sclerosis (PSS)...

Progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS) is a disease that can affect many areas of the body. It is characterized by the deposition of excessive amounts of connective tissue in the skin and internal organs as well as immune abnormalities. The cause of PSS, like many other similar conditions is unclear. Many environmental triggers may lead to the development of PSS and the genetic predisposition of each individual person may determine whether these environmental influences lead to the development of the disease. It has long been suspected that infections – both bacterial and viral – may act as triggers for PSS....

H Pylori & Heartburn

Heartburn: It’s Really Not What You Think It Is! “This article is a MUST read if you are experiencing heartburn” If you are reading this article, I would imagine that you, or someone you know, is experiencing heartburn. If you do experience heartburn, you’re certainly not alone! Heartburn is one of the most common symptoms experienced by humans. We know this is the case because heartburn (antacid) medications have consistently been among the top-selling drugs on the planet over the last twenty or more years. In fact, brands such as Nexium and Prilosec have been among the top three...

H Pylori & Atrophic Gastritis

Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach (caused by H pylori infection, alcohol, NSAIDs, aspirin, irritating foods, dehydration, smoking, etc.) Atrophy means “shrinking” or “wasting away”. Atrophic gastritis, therefore, is the result of chronic, or long-term inflammation of the stomach, where the mucosa and stomach lining are damaged and replaced by intestinal and fibrous tissues. When the stomach mucosa is damaged by chronic inflammation, the glandular cells become dysfunctional and may be destroyed. These glandular cells are responsible for the production of many factors within gastric juice, including: Hydrochloric acid Pepsin (digestive enzymes) Intrinsic factor (needed for vitamin B12 absorption)...

Acid Reflux / GERD

Acid Reflux & GERD: Like Heartburn, It’s Really Not What You Think It Is! The medical term for acid reflux is GERD, which means Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. The incidence of GERD has risen dramatically over the last couple of decades and it affects tens of millions of people (probably hundreds of millions). In fact, according to Dr Leo Galland, MD, hospitalisations as a result of this disease doubled during the 1990s. GERD and heartburn are essentially the same thing, although the pharmaceutical companies classify them differently in order to sell more drugs! We can classify GERD and heartburn...

6 Supermarket Foods To Eat If You Have H Pylori

I’d like to point out that I am not claiming that all H pylori infections can be cured by the foods listed in this article. However there is evidence in the research literature to support their use. I’d also like to mention that parts of this article are excerpts taken straight from from my book, The H Pylori Diet. As you may have read in some of our other articles, Triple Therapy antibiotics that are used in standard H pylori treatment are declining in their efficacy. Whereas treatments used to yield 80-90% success rates, some studies published in the...

3 Foods To Avoid If You Have H Pylori

One of the main reasons I wrote The H Pylori Diet was to educate people – hopefully you included – that H pylori is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to symptoms such as heartburn, reflux, fatigue, nausea and bloating. If you have H pylori, you may find that you can’t find a solution to your symptoms unless you also alter your diet as well. These days, with all our medical technology, we seem to always be seeking a complex solution to our problems, but simply avoiding exposure to things that our bodies don’t like has...

Unexplained H Pylori Symptoms

Do you have ongoing symptoms like stomach pain, heartburn, IBS, constipation, wind, fatigue, depression, skin problems, etc? Are you at a loss as to why these symptoms are occurring and are you looking for answers? It is not normal to have digestive symptoms. Don’t let the fact that so many people do have such symptoms fool you into thinking it’s normal. It’s also not normal to have imbalanced moods, feel tired, have a hard time sleeping, or experience pain or skin disorders. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, I highly recommend that you take action as soon...

Recently Been Diagnosed With H Pylori

Have you have recently been diagnosed with H pylori? Are you seeking basic information on the topic? I was pretty shocked recently when I looked at several medical websites to see if their H pylori information had been updated recently. In some cases, the pages had not been updated for many years. This is very disturbing to me because literally hundreds – if not thousands – of medical studies are performed on H pylori each year, but the information isn’t passed down to the people who need it most! The lack of current, up-to-date H pylori information is a...
