H. pylori - are you infected?

- Find out more about this wide spread problem -

H. pylori infects nearly 5 BILLION people right now. Chances are that you are most probably one of 3 in every 4 people who are infected. Proven to be the single biggest cause of most types of stomach ulcers, this bacteria can be very difficult to get rid of.

H. pylori infection - you are not alone...

Research shows that H. pylori is present in 75% of the worlds population - that means 3 out of every 4 people.

When you consider this you can see there is a good chance you may be infected, specially if you have the symptoms of a stomach ulcer.

Also when you consider that nearly 90% of people with stomach ulcer symptoms are infected with this bacterium, as are 50% of new patients with stomach cancer, then you may need to get a proper diagnosis to be on the safe side..

The facts we list below are not to scare you - they are simply to give you an idea of the magnitude and severity of H. pylori infections - this is a hardy little bug and difficult to get rid of if you opt for a conventional drug therapy that your doctor will probably prescribe.

When you see all the facts about Helicobacter Pylori, you will see how widespread this infection is. You will also see how many infected people WILL get stomach ulcers as a result of this infection.

Of course the other major risk area is that of stomach cancer, which is strongly linked to the presence of H. pylori as well.

Once you have checked these facts, or if you have been infected for a while, you may think that Helicobacter Pylori is invincible....but the good news is that a recent breakthrough in natural medicine can stop this nasty little bug in it's tracks!


Here are the bare facts.....

  • 75% of the world's population is infected with the Helicobacter Pylori bacterium. That means that right now over 4.7 billion people are infected worldwide.

  • 816 million people alive right now WILL develop a stomach ulcer caused by an infection of H. pylori.

  • Almost 70% of Helicobacter Pylori strains found in the West are now resistant to the antibiotic metronidazole, and nearly 15 per cent are also resistant to clarithromycin. Yet both of these drugs are still heavily prescribed in the treatment of ulcers.

  • Over 50% of new gastric cancer patients are infected with H. pylori.

  • Up to 90% of all stomach ulcers are caused by an infection of the Helicobacter pylori bacterium.

  • Most people have never heard of H. pylori. 60% of people surveyed believe that ulcers are caused by stress, and nearly 20% believe that stomach ulcers are caused by spicy foods.

  • Researchers have found H. pylori in the saliva of some infected people,and it has just been proven that this bacteria can be spread through mouth-to-mouth contact - in other words, kissing.

  • H. pylori does not cause ulcers in every infected person. The reason is for this is unknown. It is thought that stomach ulcers could be caused by a combination of factors, such as a stress, eating habits and an infection of Helicobacter Pylori. This is difficult to prove because there are so many variants particular to individual cases and to different cultures.
  • It is now widely publicized that antibiotics are becoming increasingly powerless
    as Helicobacter Pyloriís resistance to antibiotics increases. H. pylori is already completely resistant to any single dose of antibiotics and is even resistant to the commonly prescribed Triple and Quadruple Therapies as well.

How Helicobacter Pylori Survives in Acid...
... and Causes Ulcers!

Helicobacter Pylori is the only bacterial organism in the stomach
that cannot be killed by hydrochloric acid.

So how does this incredibly destructive bacterium survive in acid?

  • Helicobacter Pylori is able to survive gastric acids due to its ability to produce an enzyme called urease. Through a chemical process, urease can neutralize stomach acid, making it easy for the bacteria to survive in its own acid free zone.

  • Because of their corkscrew shape, the bacteria can easily penetrate the stomach's protective mucous lining.

  • The Ďantacidí effect of Helicobacter Pylori fools your stomach into producing more acid, which then makes your stomach cells more susceptible to damage through exposure to acid and pepsin

  • Too much acid and pepsin can damage a healthy and unprotected stomach lining and this is basically how ulcers are formed.
