H.Pylori

Posted by Lerxst [190.3037] on February 09, 2007 at 21:16:01:

I've decided to finally break down and take a 2 week course of antibiotics(Hp.Pac)which is triple therapy of prevacid,amoxicillin and clarithromycin to hopefully kill my H.Pylori.I would like to hear from anyone that has had the experience of using the triple therapy.I know i will have to replace the good
bacteria with a good brand of priobiotics.What would you recommend and am i doing the right thing in using
this therapy,it sounds like a lot of antibiotics.I've
had the pylori for years when it was detected with a scope of my stomach.My stomach is finally paying the price with much bloating,extreme gas and pain.So any
suggestions would be appreciated...thanks

Hi Lerxst,

The practice of prescribing two weeks may be overkill.
That was what Dr Barry Marshall originally recommended.
The results with ONE week are almost identical.

If you feel that you are suffering too badly there is no one twisting your arm to continue that long.

Your doctor may not be keeping up with current studies, just as he may have been reluctant to believe that HP was caused by bacteria when that info was first published back in the early 80's.

If you do not achieve a cure with ONE week, it may not be due to insufficient time, but more likely due to
a resistant strain that needs a slightly different
mix of antibiotics.

Here is an article that you and he should read.

Lerxst,

EVERYBODY has H. Pylori growing in their gut.

It is only when it gets out of control that it can cause problems. What are you doing about the LGS that has to be present before H. Pylori CAN get out of control?

What will keep it from coming back even if you can get rid of it now?

Walt

Hi Walt,

I never considered the possibility that we all have Helicobacter.. Some underdeveloped countries are far more of a risk for aquiring it.
I was under the impression that many complaints of gastritis after injesting fods or water when on a trip may be caused by Helicobacter but not all of the twenty-plus strains are equally serious to require treatment.

Many alternative medical sites speak of Parasites..
Helicobacter is one of them.

Thanks, Ron.

Currently there are more than 500 different species of bacteria that live symbiotically in the healthy gut. Each of them, individaually, can properly be called a parasite. it is the healthy balance of these species that allow us to live. Heliobacter is but one of these which, wnen in balance, does not act like a parasite.

LGS is the most common condition that allows one or more of these species to get out of balance.

Hope this helps.

Walt
