Helicobacter pylori: Natural treatment

In this article you have natural methods to combat this bacteria and eliminate it with oregano essential oil, among others.

Helicobacter pylori: Natural treatment Helicobacter pylori: Natural treatment

we read it for you


What is Helicobacter pylori

Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped bacteria that lives in the stomach of people. It can cause inflammation in the lining of the stomach (gastric mucosa) and cause problems such as gastritis, ulcers and gastric cancer, although in many cases it does not cause symptoms. This bacteria secretes an enzyme called urease, which can neutralize the acidity of the stomach and damage the gastric mucosa. There is controversy about whether the infection should always be treated, since H. pylori has a regulatory function on gastric hormones, leptin and ghrelin, and its elimination could be related to an increase in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome, diabetes type II and obesity.

Transmission Routes

It is common for children to acquire Helicobacter pylori infection through direct contact with stomach fluids such as regurgitation or vomiting. Other routes of transmission such as contact with saliva (for example, sharing utensils or kissing on the mouth) or consumption of water or food contaminated with feces are less common.

Unlike other bacteria, H. pylori can only thrive in the acidic environment of the stomach, so its transmission is less common. The risk of contracting the infection in adulthood is very low. To prevent infection, it is important to follow normal hygiene measures, such as washing your hands thoroughly before cooking or eating and after using the bathroom, as poor hygienic conditions encourage the spread of the bacteria.

Helicobacter Pylori infection symptoms

Some symptoms that may indicate stomach problems include:

  • Stomach pain, which may be more common on an empty stomach (indicating ulcers) or after eating (indicating gastritis).
  • Reflux or burning sensation in the upper abdomen.
  • Swelling or inflammation of the stomach.
  • Feeling of early satiety after eating a small amount of food.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Anemia and weakness.
  • Melena, which are dark stools.
  • Weightloss.

 

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Conventional treatment of Helicobacter pylori

Helicobacter pylori bacteria can trick the immune system, leading to chronic inflammation of the stomach. Although the immune system produces cells that are located around the lesions, the infection can persist and worsen symptoms if not treated properly.

Currently, a combination of Omeprazole and antibiotics is used to treat H. pylori infection, but the effectiveness of this treatment varies between 70-80%.

Increasing antibiotic resistance and high prevalence of infection underline the need to find alternatives to conventional treatments. In addition, treatments are usually prolonged, which makes patient monitoring difficult and can cause discomfort due to side effects.

Alternative Helicobacter pylori treatments

Oregano essential oil

Oregano essential oil is obtained through steam distillation of the Origanum compactum plant. This oil is rich in carvacrol and thymol, two phenolic compounds that give it notable therapeutic properties, such as its ability to act as a broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic and antifungal. It is a natural and effective option to treat various conditions caused by pathogenic microorganisms.

Treatment Efficacy

A pilot study was carried out in 129 patients taking Omeprazole chronically to verify the effectiveness of treatment with compact oregano against Helicobacter pylori. Omeprazole was withdrawn for 30 days and antibiotics were prevented, then a chemical stool test was performed and in positive cases treatment with compact oregano was instituted. The recommended dosage to treat Helicobacter pylori was 2 capsules of 75 mg of Origanum compactum essential oil every 6 hours for 10 days. 27% of the patients tested negative for H. pylori and 82% improved their symptoms and were able to stop taking Omeprazole. This study indicates the possible effectiveness of compact oregano in the treatment of H. pylori infection and its associated symptoms.

Advantages over treatment with antibiotics

  • There are no microorganisms with known resistance to compact oregano essential oil, due to the complexity of its chemical composition.
  • Respects the intestinal flora, avoiding the classic side effects of antibiotics such as diarrhea or intestinal discomfort.
  • Prevents the development of irritable bowel and SIBO, which can occur as a consequence of intensive antibiotic treatment.
