What is Helicobacter pylori?
Helicobacter pylori (h pylori) is a common bacterium that many have with or without any noticeable symptoms. Recently a study found that Otzi, the 5,300-year-old ice-mummy, was also infected with H. pylori. Today it is estimated that it is present in about half the population.
H-Pylorid is a herbal formula containing natural agents which have been shown to oppose the spread and virulence of h.pylori. The 500mg veggie capsules contain 10 concentrated extracts and may form part of a dietary reduction regime alongside conventional treatment or as standalone. The duration of the
H. pylori is known to produce an enzyme, urease, that allows the bacteria to live in harsh acidic environments such as the stomach. Urease reacts with urea to form ammonia which can neutralise enough of the stomach acid to allow organisms to survive in tissues for years which is why increasing stomach acid is important, this also prevents acid reflux because the esophageal valve only closes when acid level is correct (high).
It is highly contagious and is transmitted through saliva, fecal contamination in food or water, and poor hygienic practices in general. As stated, the good news is that most people do not exhibit any symptoms. However, if enough of the stomach acid is neutralized, it can be a factor behind many acute gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis and GI tract ulcers.
H-Pylori Conventional Treatment Is Rarely Better Than 50% Effective
In some countries, new first-line treatments are not accepted because of a lack of national validation studies and a lack of studies of clarithromycin resistance. NICE recommends a one-week triple therapy regimen as first-line eradication therapy. The optimum regimen, according to CKS, consists of a full dose proton pump inhibitor, with amoxicillin and either clarithromycin , or (in the case of penicillin hypersensitivity) metronidazole and clarithromycin, all given twice daily.
The Herbal Approach to GI Inflammation
A traditional Chinese herbalist would treat h.pylori based on Eight Principles and pattern analysis. In all three models, there is no particular advantage in testing and discovering that the inflammation is caused by H. pylori.
Today, many complementary health practitioners seeking to impress their patients too often resort to describing their diseases based on a Western medical model. The problem is that herbs are more food-like than drugs, exerting a broader function on restoring homeostasis and health. Still, many herbs do have specific tropisms or indications. For the patient described above, look to herbs that treat symptoms of ulcers, acid reflux, belching, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain as symptoms of gastritis. All of these conditions are effectively treated with dietary and herbal treatment.
It is estimated that over half of the world’s population is infected with Helicobacter pylori bacteria, or H. pylori (previously named Campylobacter pylori). H. pylori, which lives in the upper gastrointestinal track of the infected people, can cause serious damage to the body and ultimately lead to peptic ulcers or even stomach cancer. Today, H. pylori infections can sometimes be effectively cured with antibiotics; however, as H. pylori strains are growing increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatments, researchers are trying to find alternative cures for infections caused by these strains.
People generally respond to positively to Triphala which can inhibit the growth of H. pylori.so we have included it in our formula of H-Pylorid.
Herbs for Gastritis, Acid Reflux, and GI Tract Ulcers
Bitter herbs, triphala, goldenseal, Isatis, Liquorice and coptis are among the many botanical remedies taken singly or in a formula for treating gastritis, acid reflux, and gi tract ulcers. These herbs treat a broad range of gastric imbalances but have also substantiated research that they are effective for H. pylori.
Studies in vitro have demonstrated that berberine can inhibit H pylori. While these may not be robust enough to eradicate the organism entirely (if that is even possible), when used in a compound herbal formulation for gastritis, or in bitters, along with probiotic foods and a balanced diet, they will certainly contribute to a multilayered comprehensive gut healing regime.
Amla (Embica Officinalis)
Research confirms what native people of India have known for millennia, that Amla is good for the health of the whole body, especially the liver and GI tract. It is an effective treatment for gastritis, Crohn’s, iBS, stomach and duodenal ulcers and to inhibit the growth of H. pylori in the stomach.
Licorice root is a well-established anti-ulceration and mucosal healing agent. Licorice can coat and soothe the intestinal lining and promote the healing of inflamed tissue and ulcers. Research suggests that flavonoids in licorice have impressive antimicrobial activity against H. pylori. The flavonoids have been shown to have antimicrobial activity against strains of H. pylori that were resistant to clarithromycin and amoxicillin, two of the primary antibiotics used in triple therapy.
Sulforaphane is a naturally occurring chemical found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and brussels sprouts. Some studies have demonstrated that it can inhibit H. pylori. Eating cruciferous vegetables, especially broccoli sprouts, will ensure that you get plenty of sulforaphane, though it is also included in H-Pylorid.
Some studies have suggested that Vitamin C may inhibit and even kill H. pylori but more research is needed to determine the optimal dosing and program duration. Even if Vitamin C does not eradicate H. pylori, it is still worth taking a controlled dose because studies clearly show that Vitamin C levels in the stomach lining can be reduced when H. pylori is present, largely as a result of the inflammatory and oxidative stress caused by the infection. Vitamin C is also an excellent nutrient for assisting with gut healing.
The most useful single herb we know with these same antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal – in fact, every ‘anti’ property we would need to fight off harmful pathogens—is, it is Isatis tinctoria, an herb commonly known in old English as “woad,” meaning “weed.” As an ancient East – West cruciferous family medicinal herb, it happens to have all of the same antipathogenic sulfur compounds found in cruciferous vegetables and of course biologic MSM sulfur. Both the leaf and the root of Isatis are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine called da qing ye and ban lan gen respectively. These are classified as bitter and cold, which from an herbalist’s perspective means they are broadly antipathogenic and reserved for short-term use to treat the most stubborn pathogens such as viruses but are equally effective for bacteria and funguses as well.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules AFTER a little bovine colostrum or yoghurt three (3) times daily for ten (10) days then repeat with a second bottle if neccesary. The milk product entices the bacteria out of the epithelial tissue to take the poison. Best used with Triphala, Monolaurin, Bovine Colostrum, DGL and afterwards use probiotics to support and restore microflora after the course.
It is important to alter diet and avoid eating wheat, grains, pastas and sugary foods etc. Additionally, increasing the stomach acid before meals with apple cider vinegar and supplementing with Vitamin B12, B Complex , Vitamin C and Charcoal will help to open detoxification pathways and reduce the toxic load ensuring a smoother experience.
