Stomachache is a common condition which can be caused by numerous problems. One of the most common causes is the presence of a bacteria called Helicobacter Pylori in the stomach. H. Pylori is a dangerous bacterium that was discovered in 1982. Besides causing stomach pain, the bacterium can also cause stomach ulcers and other digestive problems.
- Pylori lives in the digestive tract, and if left uncontrolled, it may cause ulcers in the lining of your stomach. Although it affects 2/3 of the world’s population, not many people are aware of its effects. If left untreated, it can tear down the lining of your stomach and eventually destroy it, which will let acid through it and cause infections, bleed, and other digestive problems. The main sources of H. Pylori are dirty food, water or silverware, so it’s quite easy to be infected. Luckily, the bacterium can be destroyed with the following natural remedies:
Manuka honey has been known to fight many bacteria including H. Pylori. Eat a teaspoon of Manuka honey on toast 3 times a day and the pain in your stomach should be gone soon.
People who take probiotics on a daily basis have had much higher success in eliminating H. Pylori and experienced significantly fewer side-effects.
According to a Japanese study, cranberry juice can reduce the harmful effects of the bacterium by 14%.
Besides these remedies, we also suggest trying licorice, green tea and red wine against H. Pylori infections. They are powerful antibacterial agents which can successfully kill the bacterium in just a short time.
