Helicobacter pylorus, or also known as H. Pylori, is a form of asymptomatic bacterium that provokes infection in the stomach. It can be transmitted by unclean water and food and almost 2/3 of the world population is affected by it. If you leave this bacterium untreated, it may provoke peptic ulcers and stomach cancer. You can hardly detect this bacterium without appropriate medicinal examination.
How do you know?
Helicobacter pylorus produces numerous symptoms such as burping, heartburn, bloating, esophageal reflux, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, and mid-stomach discomfort. In general, the majority of the people mistake and confuse these symptoms for normal body manifestations.
This bacterium is the major cause for gastritis – a stomach lining inflammation. H. Pylori may trigger a lot of other health issues not directly connected with digestion, like for example headache, cardiovascular issue, and Raynaud’s sickness (impaired circulation in feet and hands). At the same time, this bacterium can decrease the levels of serotonin in the brain triggering nervousness and depression.
It can happen to anyone, including you
Helicobacter pylorus thrives in the stomach lining mainly and it’s considered to be transmitted by eating and drinking contaminated food or water with human fecal, or through direct contact with the vomit, stool, or saliva of an infected person. The most likely manner for transmission is being exposed to family members who have H. Pylori.
What can you do about it?
In more than 80% of the cases, this bacterium is successfully treated. You should always consult your doctor for the proper therapy. Treatment includes a combination of drugs and antibiotics to lower the production of stomach acid and the treatment can last for several weeks. Having an appropriate dietary regime and including a lot of vitamins A, E, and C in combination with zinc, is of vital importance in order to protect the stomach lining. It’s advisable also to take probiotics such as bifidobacterium and lactobacillus.
