Helicobacter pylorus (H. pylori) is a type of asymptomatic bacterium that causes infection in the stomach. It affects about two-thirds of the world’s population and may be transmitted by unclean food and water. If left untreated, it can cause peptic ulcers and even stomach cancer. Without proper medicinal examination, these bacteria are hard to detect.

How do you know?

H. pylori can produce various symptoms and the most common include burping, bloating, heartburn, esophageal reflux, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence and upper and mid-stomach discomfort.

People generally mistake these symptoms for normal body manifestations.

H. pylori is the main reason for gastritis – an inflammation of the stomach lining. Gastritis accounts for 90% of duodenal ulcers and around 80% of gastric ulcers.

H. Pylori can also trigger a number of other conditions that are not directly linked to digestion, such as cardiovascular issue, headaches and Raynaud’s sickness, which is impaired circulation in the hands and feet.

This bacterium can decrease serotonin levels in the brain thus triggering depression and nervousness.

It can happen to anyone, including you

The bacteria thrive mainly in the stomach lining and are believed to be transmitted by eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated with human fecal material, or possibly through contact with the stool, vomit, or saliva of an infected person. Exposure to family members with H. pylori seems to be the most likely opportunity for transmission.

It’s advisable to check the conditions of any restaurant you go to.

What can you do about it?

  1. Pylori can be successfully treated in more than 80% of cases. Consult your doctor to get the appropriate therapy. Treatment usually involves a combination of antibiotics and drugs to reduce the amount of stomach acid produced, and these are taken for several weeks. Maintaining a proper dietary regime and plenty of vitamins A, C and E, along with zinc, is essential in order to protect your stomach lining. Taking probiotics such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium is also advisable.

Last, but not least, is maintaining proper hygiene like washing your hands frequently and properly. Drinking water from safe sources is also very important.

In case you feel at risk of becoming infected with H. Pylori, contact your specialist to get an appropriate examination. You can never be too cautious with issues of this kind as they can also influence your social and work life, apart from your overall health.

    I can only assume this is something you do every day, right? Taken at bedtime? A bunch of cilantro is a lot of cilantro. How much, approximately? 1 cup? Is the cucumber peeled and seeded? Is the lemon whole or are we talking about just the juice of one lemon. I think this recipe could stand to be a little more specific.

      Hi Randy Barnes,

      This drink is for everyday. Taken just before bedtime. The ingredients are combined in order to stimulate your metabolism to burn fat while you are sleeping. This particular combination is proven to improve your metabolism, meaning that your metabolism works at full speed even when you are sleeping.

      As for cilantro, 1 cup should be sufficient but you can have the cup half full.

      With cucumber, I prefer the cucumber to be peeled, then only mix it to the food processor.

      Lastly, all we want is the juice of the lemon.

      I hope i didn’t miss out any of your questions. Let me know if you have any more questions?

      Thank you.

          Hi Alice O’Hara,

          Cilantro is an annual herb from the family Apiaceae, which contains 3,700 species including carrots, celery, and parsley.

          All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and dried seeds are most commonly used in cooking.

          Often known in the United Kingdom as coriander, cilantro comes from the plant Coriandrum sativum.

          In the United States, the leaves of the plant are referred to as cilantro (the Spanish translation) and the seeds are called coriander. Cilantro is also commonly known as Chinese parsley.

          You can easily get hold of cilantro in the market.

          Hope this helps.

          Hi NATU,

          There is a slight difference between cilantro and coriander.

          While leafy cilantro (also called “Chinese parsley” and sometimes “coriander leaves”) and coriander seeds come from the same plant, you’d never know it from their aromas and flavors. They are entirely different. The herb, cilantro, is often used in Asian and Latin American cooking and has a lively citrusy and, to some, a slightly soapy flavor. The seed, coriander, is sweet and toasty with a warm aroma and flavor.

          Hope this helps.

    This is wonderful! I’m going to try this. I’m 30 years old and have been struggling with bloating for over 10 years . Im 115 pounds 5’3 and have 2 kids. I can’t gain weight. I work out for toning and health but I cry that my stomach won’t shrink! It gets bloated everyday as if I’m 4 months pregnant. I also get gas with almost anything I eat. It’s very tiring, sad and painful. I really hope this works! I don’t see any doctors even though we have insurance. Thank u so much and may God bless you.

    Do you chop up the cilantro or parsley or leave whole? Do you put it all in the food processor or just the glass of water?

  11. Alathi

    Hello, thanks for this great tip! I have two doubts to be cleared,
    1. May I add honey to this drink?
    2. I do not have a food processor at my place, may I use a mixer to grind all the ingredients as semi- liquid juice?
    Thank you for helping us.

    Thank you very useful information.

    Hi there, does it matter if I use English cucumber or the regular cucumber?
    Is it one full cucumber I should use?

    1. Admin Post author

      Hi Kim Doolin,

      Just one full cucumber will do. It doesn’t matter one large or small the cucumber since cucumber is a healthy food. If you can finish a large one, then have one. Hope this helps.

      Good luck to you.

    Hi Admin,
    I’m taking this drink from past 1 month replacing parseley by mint leaves because of the unavailability. But there are no visible results, no reduction in bloating, no weight loss. Infact my constipation is getting much worse hardly once in five days.
    What should i do? Do I need to consult a doctor?

  14. Mike

    Admin, I have mixed all the ingredients together and when I try to drink it the drink burns my mouth as if I was drinking hot sauce. Could I be using the wrong kind of aloe Vera juice? I found like 3 different kinds at the store and 2 of them said it was for weight loss. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Admin Post author

      Hi Mike,

      I’m sorry to hear that. My suggestion is to change the aloe vera juice.

      Please let me know how it goes for you?

      Good luck to you.
