    I was prescribed two antibiotics and 1 anti-acid pill 3x a day for 2-3 weeks but something equally important that the nurse practicioner told me to do was to steer clear of all acid producing nutrients during this time. That means no sour candies, no hot peppers, no fruits, no juice, no coffee, no soda, no flavor for your taste bud during this time of treatment.

    She explained to me that H. Pylori is an acid loving bacterium so naturally the best place to live is in my stomach. The treatment worked for me because all I ate was porridge(white rice boiled in water until thicken) and drank only water plus the 3 pills 3x a day for 2-3 weeks.

    It was difficult but I pulled through because it made sense. You basically 1.)inhibit the acid in your tummy which = inhospitable environment to live for H.Pylori, 2) starve it to death = don't eat candies, drink sodas or juice, no fruits (stick with porridge(no salt/no seasonings) and drink just water), 3)Bring in some competition by introducing antibiotics.

    Do Steer clear of taking any acids/vitamins/candies etc for 2 1/2 months thereafter finishing the meds just to be sure you are not nurturing any weak H.pylori survivors back to life. The last thing you want to do is feed it with a glass of homemade lemon aid or a squeeze of lemon in your salads, soups, tacos, etc. 2 1\2 months of fighting the cravings! You can do it if you put your mind to it! Take your body back!
