You can post a link.

And, as long as that doctor is not a practicing LLMD, you can post the name - especially if they have authored a book or article for the public to read.

Since some don't "do" Facebook and may not be able to connect, the author's name is helpful and maybe a direct website link that is not connected to Facebook.

Good to read this whole chapter. (2/3 of the way down) Excerpt:

. . . Recent scientific evidence indicates that the H. pylori bacterium plays an influential role in ulcer formation . . .

. . . dental plaque can harbor a supply of H. pylori, which may allow continual re-infection (Dosai, et. al 1991).

In cases of gastric ulcers, we must first address diet, stress, food allergies, liver health and digestive power. It is sometimes possible to obtain symptomatic relief with cooked okra, cabbage juice or bananas.

A few weeks or months of DGL licorice therapy can also serve to strengthen the stomach and intestinal membranes. This is very effective, even in some cases of H. pylori infection.

In stubborn cases that do not respond to simple therapy, research indicates that mastic gum (Pistacia lentiscus) is emerging as a beneficial anti-ulcer therapy (Huwez, et. al 1998). . . .

While this thread is labeled "herbal treatment" - for various reasons - it's always important to compare any herbal path with the Rx treatment outlines.

Rx treatment can be very good and faster . . . and support herbs can be used in conjunction.

Search web for: Rx+treatment, H+Pylori

Then, it may be good to find a good naturopathic doctor who is educated and experienced with far more herbs than what we can find on a web search - and many also know about Rx and when to use either or both approaches.

For those with lyme, a LL ND is best. How to find a naturopathic doctor and others of similar education and experience who can provide an individualized approach:

Even with H. PYLORI --

PARASITES need to be considered as an important tick-borne co-infection, too.

While I've posted some herbal links above, the pharmaceutical protocol for H. PYOLORI can be very helpful.

Best to consult a range of doctors (or read their works / theories) who are very experienced in this matter. It may be that pharmaceutical Rx is best for some, yet care for the microbiome is vital whichever treatment path taken.

This is not a full links set as I can see room for that and many other points, too. Do search the LymeNet archives for other threads on this important topic - and elsewhere, too.

Artemisinin with Berberine Compositions and Methods of Making

PATENT APPLICATION 2013 - Apr 25, 2013


. . . HP is a corkscrew-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium which is present in the stomach lining of approximately 3 billion people worldwide, and is the most common bacterial infection found in humans.

Many of those carrying the bacterium have few or no symptoms, with the exception of inflammation of the stomach lining, a condition which is called “gastritis.” Gastritis is the underlying condition which can eventually cause ulcers and other digestive ailments. . . .

. . . Artemisinin Combination Therapy (ACT) has been an alternative treatment which shows great promise in its ability to act as a broad-based antibiotic and anti-parasitic, especially when dealing with infections that are rising through contamination by fecal matter, as HP is known to be.

ACTs are less debilitating for the patient, and have no known side effects as many of the currently prescribed antibiotics have.

See for example, Goswami S, B. R. (Epub 2012 Jun. 11). Anti-Helicobacter pylori potential of artemisinin and its derivatives. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy., 56(9):4594-607. . . .
