Post treatment and healing

The cure of Hp usually requires antibiotics. Other things have been tried and have a weaker effect.

Post treatment and healing

Post by Hpuk »

Hi Helico_expert,

You told me to let you know how I get on. So after my second round of antibiotics I did a stool test 3 weeks after (was advised by Gp to) thought it was a bit odd as usually everywhere I read you should wait 4 weeks.

Regardless I tested negative normal stool sample (bit worried if it is false positive).

Anyways I still have inflammation from h pylori damage and looking to solve this issue. I have read from other forums of people taking Dgl liquorice, Slippery elm, aloe Vera which is supposed to coat the stomach lining to help it heal.

I also was wondering should I take a ppi once a day or twice a day to try and heal.

Any foods to avoid?

Are these supplements useful and what would be the best protocol?

Thank you for taking the time to help me, it's greatly appreciated

seems like your treatment is successful.
Most importantly is to get rid of H. pylori and the inflammation will gradually reduce.
Unfortunately the healing is subjective to the severity of the damage done by H. pylori. Some people recover within weeks, some take months, and some take years.
In general, the younger you are, the better the recovery.

When you are free of H. pylori, you can eat whatever you want that make you feel good.
You can try Dgl liquorice, Slippery elm, aloe Vera and etc, and if you feel that it's helpful, just continue until you think it's enough.

I normally just go for mint tea. But what works for me may not be working for you. So you will need to do a bit of experiment on it to find out the best strategy for you.

Brilliant, thank you for all the help. Without your guidance and expertise to change the ppi and take it 3 times a day, combined with pepto bismol I don't think I would have got this far. You guys do all this work for free to help people across the world that are struggling in their daily lives, and for this we are all grateful even if we can't tell you in person. Hopefully I recover soon, and good health all on here!
