Hello Nickles, thank you for the reply.
I was given Amoxicilin 500mg capsules( being anti-biotics), Klaricid 500mg tablets (being anti-biotic) and Lansoprazole 30mg 28 capsules. But i still have the parasite.
I feel stomach pain after almost every meal especially meals with protein. That makes me think I don't have enough stomach acid. This is one of the symptoms having Pylori. Drinking pineapple juice, mint/ pepermint and also ginger tea help with the digestion.
As to SIBO, I dont know if I have it for sure but I have almost all the symptoms of it. I am developping intolerence to pasta, bread, potatoes, which I have never had it before. I get very bloated (like 10 months pregnant), gassy and constipated. My face gets very red during the digestion especially after starchy and sugary meals.
I have been reading a lot about
digestive system problems. Having nasties in the intestines (small intestines or colon ) cause all sorts of diseases. Once you have them they overgrow rapidly as they feed on sugar and starch.
There is a protocol which I came across on the net. It consists of taking probiotics, enzymes, HCI, grapefruit seed extract, a cancida clear formula, saccharomyces, multi vitamin and of course no sugar no carb diet for a few weeks while on the protocol. I am still looking for good brands for the protocol.
I really think eradication of pylori is only possible with a holistic approach. Therefore that protocol makes sense for me not only for the treatment of the Pylori and also bacterial overgrowth.
Please let me know how you got on with the doctor.
