Many studies show a positive effect when natural compounds are used alongside triple therapy for H pylori. In fact, in my experience, some herbs and plant extracts are as effective, if not more so, than triple therapy, which is how we have been able to run with a 95% success rate in helping folk overcome their H pylori symptoms.
Eucalyptus torelliana leaf extracts are used in Nigerian traditional medicine to treat gastrointestinal disorders, so a team of researchers decided to add Eucalyptus to standard triple therapy too see if it improved H pylori treatment outcomes. Here’s what they found:
Our researchers concluded that the investigation demonstrated that a combination of botanical extracts/compounds and antibiotics may be beneficial in the treatment of H. pylori infections.

Dave Hompes’ Comments
Mother Nature always knows best. For every problem, she has a solution, so it’s no surprise that, time and time again, we see improvements in the efficacy of medical treatments when some of Mother Nature’s ingredients are added in.
Mastic gum, vitamin U from cabbage juice, bismuth, DGL, berberine, resveratrol and many other individual herbs have been shown to inhibit or kill H pylori outright. Furthermore, they don’t cause anywhere near the same level of side-effects.
But because they cannot be patented for profit, drug companies are not interested in their benefits. I am not saying everyone should use natural treatments for H pylori, nor am I saying people shouldn’t use pharmaceutical antibiotics. I am saying that options do exist outside the medical paradigm and they deserve a lot more attention than they’re currently given to enable patients to make informed choices about their respective courses of action.
