Dave here, hugely excited to again share some wisdom and love about H. pylori symptoms!
One of the main reasons I wrote those books was to draw people’s attention to H. pylori symptoms that you don’t learn about from your doctor.
When I had H. pylori, I struggled with the usual heartburn and acid reflux, but I also had a ton of other symptoms that seemed unrelated to my gut, including:
After 30-days on a natural H pylori treatment plan these symptoms improved tremendously.
I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of people who also experienced a huge amount of relief from H. pylori symptoms that were NOT in their digestive system!
If you care to look for it, there’s an ENORMOUS amount of research showing how H. pylori symptoms can extend waaaaaay beyond your digestive system.
H. pylori symptoms vary from person to person and I’d love you to watch this short video on how H. pylori symptoms develop elsewhere in your body.
I really hope it provides an enlightening moment for you as to why, perhaps you’ve been feeling under the weather without an explanation.
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty exciting to realise that your gut can influence so many areas of your body.
Because it might finally help you understand why, no matter what you’ve been doing, you haven’t been able to get anywhere with your symptoms.
Make no mistake, H. pylori can cause iron deficiency, deplete your vitamin B12 levels and drain your vitamin C level (and probably many other nutrients) leaving you feeling tired, moody, lethargic and just not feeling yourself.
It can also increase inflammation outside your gut that can effect your skin, joints and may also trigger headaches, whilst leaving you prone to other infections.
Then, it can imbalance your adrenal hormones, slow your thyroid down and possibly even reduce your sex hormone levels, leading to a reduction in your sex drive and zest for life, as well as possible menstrual and even fertility problems.
What we have here is bunch of H. pylori symptoms that don’t really make sense unless you know the mechanisms (which I’ve just given to you).
Rather worryingly, most doctors don’t realise H. pylori symptoms can be so wide-ranging.
The medical system still views H pylori as bacteria that cause heartburn, gastritis, ulcers, nausea and sometimes, sickness.
This is to your detriment because you might not have any of the classical H. pylori symptoms, but you might feel tired, moody, sleepless and so on.
Once I’d beaten H pylori without antibiotics, I began my crusade to create options for others to do the same.
In order to beat H. pylori, you first need to know if you have it.
If you have a bunch of unexplained symptoms and you don’t know what’s causing them, consider getting a comprehensive stool test done.
These things are worth their weight in gold. Without one, I wouldn’t have been able to detect H. pylori (and the parasite and mold overgrowth in my gut).
Not only will this test tell you what’s causing your digestive symptoms, it’ll also help you get an idea of why you’re not feeling well in other areas of your body.
You don’t need to leave your home to do a home stool test, by the way, and the results come back quickly.
If you already know you have H pylori because you have all the common H. pylori symptoms and have run a test with your doctor, you can do two things.
First, take the antibiotics your doctor has prescribed. They work 60-70% of the time, but they can cause side effects and even when they knock out H pylori, you can still have symptoms if you don’t take other measures.
These other measures include changing your diet to remove what I call “trigger” foods.
These foods include gluten, cow’s milk, soy and others.
They cause inflammation in your stomach and intestine just like H. pylori does, and can cause the same symptoms.
As I said earlier I wrote The H Pylori Diet to help take care of all these dietary issues.
It’s a simple programme and works like a charm.
I don’t think I can say much else.
Please remember that H. pylori symptoms don’t always fit the description you see on medical websites.
They can be wide-ranging and just because you don’t have heartburn, dizziness, bloating, ulcers and stomach pain, it doesn’t mean H. pylori’s not causing problems.
If you’re in any doubt, just ask as we’re here to help.
I’d love to hear from you – if you have a story you’d like to share about H. pylori or your symptoms, leave a comment below. We’ll always reply.
Until next time, take care.
