H pylori and angina – is there a role for H pylori?...

Heart disease can present itself as a condition known as angina pectoris, which is characterised by chest pains that may extend down the left arm. The scientific literature once again points to an association between H pylori and angina. This short blog post presents some research showing a possible link between H pylori and angina and why it’s really important not to see H pylori as just another tummy bug! I recommend you click here if you haven’t yet seen the rest of my information on how H pylori is associated with cardiovascular disease – including high blood, pressure,...

H Pylori and vitamin B12 deficiency – a recipe for disaster?...

In this blog post I’ll show you research that reveals how H pylori and vitamin B12 levels are correlated. In other words, I’ll show you how H pylori appears to cause vitamin B deficiency in some people, ultimately leading to symptoms such as low energy, depression, headaches and possibly even increasing the risk of  developing heart disease. In this blog series on H pylori and heart disease, you’ve so far learned how H pylori can result in: Greater development and severity of atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries) High blood pressure Elevated total cholesterol, LDL and oxidized LDL cholesterol levels...

H pylori and metabolic syndrome – is there a link?...

H pylori and metabolic syndrome In this post we’ll explore the association between H pylori and metabolic syndrome. It’s a really important post, particularly if you’ve been diagnosed with any of the following: insulin resistance type II diabetes obesity high cholesterol high blood pressure chronic inflammation. The post is part of an ongoing series explaining how H pylori might influence cardiovascular disease in some people. If you haven’t yet read the previous posts in the series, it will be really helpful if you do so, starting here. What is metabolic syndrome? Before we look at the relationship between H...

H pylori and high blood pressure – an important link...

If you haven’t read the first two posts in this series, it’ll really help if you read them first. Please take a few minutes to read them by clicking on the links below. H pylori and heart disease – a surprising connection H pylori and cardiovascular disease – surely not?

Study Indicates H Pylori Infection Causes Leaky Gut Syndrome!...

“Leaky Gut Syndrome” is a term describing damage done to the stomach and intestinal wall by food, infections, nutrient deficiencies and toxins. Under normal circumstances gut cells are pulled tightly together to prevent molecules leaking from the gut into the blood stream in an inappropriate fashion. The places where these cells are pulled together are called “tight junctions”. When bad bugs like H pylori, or foods such as gluten cause inflammation and tissue damage, the tight junctions can become separated, with tiny gaps appearing between the cells and this is called “leaky gut”. A leaky gut can cause many...
