When I’m asked “what are the best herbs for killing H pylori?” I’m hesitant to give a firm answer.
Because actually, there are LOADS of different plant extracts and herbs that seem to work well.
They include coconut oil (lauric acid), garlic, ginger, curcumin, ginger, broccoli compounds, mastic gum, licorice and more.
But it’s how you use them, when you use them, and for how long you use them that determines whether they work.
As you know, I’m inspired to share information that empowers you to take command of your health and beat your symptoms quickly and safely, whether that’s through your doctor or using natural therapies.
And it’s a FACT that you can conquer H pylori without the need for pharmaceuticals if you choose to.
This video and articles reveals some of the best herbs for killing H pylori, their advantages and their drawbacks.
If you like videos, then watch the vid; if you prefer reading, then skip the vid and read the info below.
I read a really good article recently published scientific research, actually, that summarized a whole bunch of herbs and plant extracts that either inhibit the growth of H pylori, or literally kill it.
The reason I enjoyed the article so much is that it gave a whole bunch of scientific credibility to what I’ve been seeing for years in my clients – namely that you CAN safely beat H pylori using foods and herbs!

Just so you know, I’m not suggesting you deliberately avoid antibiotics.
I want to give you the option to use an alternative approach – a more natural H pylori treatment.
Thousands of integrative doctors, naturopaths and nutritionists help their patients overcome H pylori (and other bad bugs) using herbs.
I know for sure herbs are effective in beating H pylori because I did it myself, twice!
So if herbs for killing H pylori are supported in the literature (as per the many volumes of published research) and witnessed day in, day out, in clinical experience, why aren’t you given the options?
Well, it’s simple: conventionally trained doctors simply aren’t taught about these options at med school.
Because you’re a unique individual with unique genes, stress levels and nutritional status, the best herbs for killing H pylori may be different for you than for someone else.
Also, different H pylori strains may respond differently to specific herbs, plant extracts and nutrients.
It’s wise, therefore, to use a combination of H pylori-killing agents alongside one another rather than just one.
My favourite herbs and plant extracts for this purpose are:
It’d be easy to get complacent about the positive effect of herbs and plant extracts on H pylori.
But there are some important considerations that herbs and nutritional supplement providers DON’T tell you.
If you don’t know about these drawbacks and considerations, you can end up spending a load of precious time and money on stuff that doesn’t work.
Well nobody really knows, actually.
Unlike antibiotic treatment, there’s no specific recommended protocol that everyone recommended.
I’ve designed one that seems to work really well, but there’s no hard and fast rule.
Again, nobody knows.
Just taking a few random herbal supplements for a few days won’t work.
The protocol really needs to be structured and typically needs to last for a minimum of 30-60 days.
This is yet another tricky question and, again, there’s no firm answer.
You can take all the best herbs for killing H pylori but if they’re not taken in the right way, they may not work.
Some people do well taking herbs away from food, but others don’t tolerate it so well.
Some herbs may be more effective on an empty stomach and some with food – it really depends on the individual.
It’s possible to use foods, supermarket herbs and spices in powder form, but we really don’t know what dosage and protocol duration we need to be using with these.
An example of this approach would be to eat cloves of raw garlic each day, add plenty of coconut and olive oil to meals, use turmeric and ginger in cooking, eat lots of broccoli sprouts, and so on.
Alternatively, reputable supplement companies have formulated some excellent products.
Some folk consider these products a little expensive, and in my experience not all of them work very well.
But if you choose the best ones and use them appropriately, along with consideration of your diet, they are very effective.
Some of my favourite products (all of which contain the best herbs for killing H pylori) include:
Now, please don’t think you need to use ALL of these products, because you don’t!
I’ve given you all the options because it may be easier for you to get hold of some of these supplements than others in your local area.
The complete protocol I recommend to my clients is written out, alongside important dietary changes, in The H Pylori Diet.
It involves using Gastromend-HP, Allicillin and a product not mentioned above called Matula Herbal Formula.
Matula Herbal Formula is my favourite product, but it’s important you read about it so I can set the record straight about this product.
There is a lot of ridiculous information elsewhere on the Internet about Matula so please take the time to consume the info.
It’s very simple: H pylori doesn’t always cause the symptoms you are experiencing.
You can be diagnosed with H pylori and eradicate it yet, you may not feel any better.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t eradicate H pylori here… what I’m saying is that most people I talk to also want to get rid of their symptoms in the process.
Common foods you’re eating, which I’ve talked about elsewhere (gluten, cow’s milk, soy, sugar, additives, alcohol and so on) can all cause major irritation to your stomach and intestine.
In fact, these foods can lead to the same symptoms as H pylori!
If you continue eating these foods, you may not feel better.
It doesn’t matter how many antibiotics you take, or how much you spend on fancy supplements.
If foods are making you feel unwell you’re going to need to avoid them if you want your wellness back.
Another reason for avoiding these foods is to make sure any money you do spend on herbs is money well spent.
What do I mean?
Well, if you have a ton of inflammation in your gut from the food you’re eating it’s much harder for herbs and plant extracts to do their job.
They’re simply not as effective in killing H pylori as they are when you bring your inflammation levels down by avoiding the bad foods.
Herbs and plant extracts can be very helpful for killing H pylori.
But they need to be used in a structured way for maximum impact.
As a starting point, I recommend this protocol as an excellent “stomach cleanse” protocol:
Biofilm disruptor product (2 CAPS on waking and 2 CAPS before bed with 4-6oz water).
This protocol breaks down H pylori biofilms so the herbs are able to get into contact with H pylori.
Helpful products include (choose one, not all):
Interfase or Interfase Plus by Klaire Labs.
Biofilm Defense by Kirkman Labs
Nattokinase (many manufacturers make nattokinase)
2 cups Matula Herbal Formula per day (as per manufacturer’s instruction)
2 CAPS Gastromend HP before breakfast and dinner, taken just before meals with a very small amount of water.
1 CAP Allicillin half way through breakfast and dinner with a very small amount of water.
Follow eating guidelines in The H Pylori Diet (click here for details)
Add ginger, curcumin, cinammon, cayenne and/or black pepper to meals (don’t add any of these if they irritate your stomach).
Eat fresh garlic and drink cranberry juice.
Add some coconut oil to meals and olive oil to salads.
Killing H pylori may not resolve your symptoms.
Your gut may need time to heal, and you may need to follow additional protocols.
That’s it for now!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that it’s been helpful.
Don’t forget there’s a fully structured programme in The H Pylori Diet (includes anti-Candida and gut healing protocols), and a cookbook to go with it.
