I dont believe probiotic will affect the H. pylori load in the stomach. So probiotic will not affect the stool test (nor breath test).

Since Bio HPF contain bismuth. Therefore it is likely that it will give false negative result to both breath and stool test.

Normally people catch H. pylori when they are young. It's harder for adult to catch H. pylori as adult is aware of hygiene. Children as young as 2 years old is already found carrying H. pylori. When parents are +ve of H. pylori, there is a 40% chance for the child to be infected. if the parents are negative, only 3% of the child is infected with H. pylori.

My gastroenterologist said people can get re-infected if they are susceptible. And they are not sure how it is spread. The young thing makes more sense to me, but I don't know. I didn't have any symptoms until 43. Now am 54 and have been dealing with it for two years.

I am getting my son tested. I have good hygiene, wash hands constantly. I have a lot of pets and was feeding my pets raw meat, don't know if that could be a connection.

Hi guys

Just wanted to share my hpylori story...

Initally in oct 2017 pain and burning started in my stomach for which my gp gave me gas medicine . However which didnt improved.

After 2 weeks i started getting fatigue, weakeness, blurrness etc after analyzing further by the specialist by conducting all the tests which includes cbc, chest xray hiv, typhod, kidney, liver test etc he suggested endoscopy and colonscopy. After doing the endoscopy and colonscopy which was done in jan 2018 hpylori was detected and was given ppi and pylera for 10 days. After treated for hpylori breathing test was conducted and was negative. However, i am still facing weakeness, fatigue, blurrness and stomach pain and i am sleeping 20 hrs a day still feeling weakeness. After talking to the specialist again i was given vitamin b12 and vitmain b complex with calcium, vitamin d and probitoics. However i am taking these since last 1.5 months regularly somtimes i am feeling fine, normal and sometimes i am feeling still low to date and it has been 8 months now i am starting to get worried.

Will appreciate if someone can provide me guidance to the same as to what should i do.

Update on my case, I tested negative on both breath and stool. My symptoms have been getting much better the past few weeks. Still some pain swallowing but much less, some minor heartburn an hour or so after eating. I used Bio HPF (which contains bismuth and mastic gum) along with stomach anti-inflammation agents. I also took oil of oregano, time released for three weeks. Twice a day. For two weeks I took black seed oil, 500mg twice a day. I took the Bio HPF for 8 weeks, these were concurrent. (only one oil at a time). I had Hpylori 10 years ago, but had not had symptoms for nearly as long and only took the Bio HPF for 8 weeks. I would urge anyone looking to cure without antibiotics to try this approach. Had I not tested negative I would have done the antibiotics. Here is a study I found showing a similar protocol, but for a shorter time, and good results.

Hi , thanks for your update. I am in US and was tested positive for h pylori last month. I want thru the three antibiotics. Now on Prilosec , I changed 3 GI as I did not trusted the other two. The GI asked me to slowly discontinue the Prilosec 20 mg and then wait forwait for 6 weeks before stool and breath test. Today I purchased New Zealand Manuka Honey oil of oregano. Could you please let me know how frequently we should take the homey and is the first time in the morning we take it and how much to take. And how to take oil of oregano by mouth . How much and a day. Your help will be appreciated. I really don’t have too much gas problem so should I be taking mastic gum if so how many per day. I have slight pain around my abdominal area now and then. But nothing last for few seconds. Thanks.

I took a product called bio HPF by Biotics Research. I also took ADP by Biotics - emulsified oil or oregano. I’ve taken the manuka honey before too, you can take a tablespoon a day and then build up. Bio HPF two capsules three times a day, oil of oregano is three times a day also, and I took a probiotic in the morning and at night. Bio hpf has mastic gum in it. It takes a little longer you need to take about two bottles of bio HPF. And take them at the same time but I only took oregano for about three weeks.
