Eradicating Helicobacter pylori with garlic? By: garcot
April 9 2009
Dear Members,

Please read this article: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0ISW/is_259-260/ai_n12417461/?tag=rbxcra.2.a.11

Since this bacteria ( there are 7 different variants) causes stomach ulcers and one of the variants can be dangerous enough to cause cancer over prolonged untreated exposure,

I would request experienced healers in this forum and visitors to share their experiences in treating severe stomach ulcers and homeopathic treatment strategy.

Thanks in advance,

Dear Garcot,
Your question invokes some fundamentals. That as classical homeopathy practioners maintain a Hahnemanian mandate and stand still and go by the symptoms or go by Helicobacter Pylori and get into the root of the problem and add the homeopathic symptom diagnosis to arrive at a firm conclusion, which basically means an integration of homeopathy with the allopathic techniques of diagnosis.

Going by that technique which I often times followed, we need to start from Helicobacter Pyloris which infact is supposed to be unknown to the annals of homeo but all its resultant morbid conditions arising out of that menace ofcourse have been and is being addressed by homeopathy.

Though the cause may ultimately be traced to helicobacter pyloris, the basic ailments were treated and cured under many other nomenclatures like,Dyspepsia(indigestion), inflammation of the linings of the deodinum and stomach, GERD, Heart Burn, Gastritis, Gastralgia, Gastric ulcers, Peptic Ulcers, stomatitis and cancerous conditions.

The main factors which we need to keep in mind are that the menace called Helicobacter Pylori is affecting almost 50% of the world population and thrives on the conditions prevailing in stomach by overwhelming the mechanism that is designed to protect the stomach. The fact that it moves away from the acidic contents in the stomach and makes its colonies elsewhere is an important horizon to investigate for its elimination. Its extermination from the stomach is not an important factor because what has been caused by it also do not heal normally on itsown without the aid of medicines and therefore medicines like amoxicillin and clarithromycin, and a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole and other medicines ending in cillin or zole are frequently used alongwith antacids to cover up the ulcers is more or less the practice in vogue until it reaches an ulcerous or cancerous state.

For us in homeopathy, the first to rebel will be the liver. Dyspepsia would be addressed by great medicines like China, Chionanthus,
Chelidonium, Nux Vomica, Pulsatilla, Arsenic Album,. Lycopodium, Phosphorus, Sulphur, Bryonia, Carbo Veg etc.

When it get to one more stage further and turns with burning sensation and GERD, Arsenicum Album, Argentum Nitricum, Natrum Phos, Hydrastis etc. are employed.

When it reaches the gastric stages where omiprazole is handy, the pyloris have progressed from inflammation to ulcerous or gastric or peptic ulcerous stages. The first medicine in Allopathy for soothing is Ammonium Phos and homeopathy do not lag behind in using the same. But the most successful medicine at any stage of ulcer would be Borax in homeopathy. The othr most valuable medicines if gastric ulcers are abies nig.,.aconitum nap (where fear of death will be there),
Anacardium/ipec/argentum nit/chelidonium/petroleum combination., Arg. Nit. Antim Crudem., Atopinum and Bismuthium for gastralgia,Arsenic Album, Graphites, Hydrastis, Ornithogalum , Nux Vomica, Sulphur.

If it is of Peptic ulcer dimension, the treatment should start with Alumnium Phos, Argentum Nitricum, Arsenicum, Anacardium, Lyco, Phosphorus, Rubinia, Uranium Nitricum. Peptic ulcers includes deodenal ulcers and all medicines above work for deodenal ulcers.

When it turns into Carcinoma, Ornithogalum, Kreosotum, Acid Phos, Bellis Perennis,Cadmium Sulph, Carcinosinum, Carduus M, Cholesterinum, Condurago, Crotalus Hor., Echinesia (for pain and purification of blood from toxins),, Euphorbium off., etc would be helpful. In metastasis to bones, Hekla Lava and Symphytum would be most useful.
I hope this helps.

Dear Udaya,

Thanks for sharing your extensive experience in treating all forms of ulcer and the list medicines that get normally indicated at different stages of this ailment. I think, if we follow a healthy diet that addresses, ulcerous states, as described in some of the authentic ayurvedic literature, human organism (macro) can live in harmony with all these micro-organisms which make colonies in most of us at some stage of our life.

Also, since our receptive bodies (our vital force) can learn to cope up with all these trillions of micro-organisms in our gut, and develop its own strategies, the importance of the right kind nutrition based on individual constitution, should be of paramount importance. Actually, H.Pyroli also does a few good things to humans, which we shun talking about!

Thanks again for your excellent presentation.

Yeah. Prevention is better than cure. I would not only base them on balanced food and nutrition, but other important contributors are there i.e

i. Time: There should be time for food, time for sleep, time for play, time for exercise, time for each and every activity. There should be regulated repetition which we often do not adhere to (Nishta)

ii. Rules for life : Carfully regulated rules for life. Not sedentry habits. Should not life where mind and heart carries one. Life should be guided by reason.

iii. Exercises: A good regime of exercises, ofcourse to be done at the prescribed time as envisioned by those who had superhuman insights and secrets passed on to us from the ancient Yogi, Munis, Rishis and Maharishis as Yoga and other Yogic Kriyas, and Ashtanga Yoga which contains all pre-requisite to keep our body healthy without medicines.

In the modern life, lack of proper education and understanding and imparting to the next generations in the right perspective, mostly the present generation shun many of those aspects as blind belief which are beyond their understanding. This happens because of the very reason that they are not adhering to those rules and the body is not in a healthy state and therefore the mind too.

If the human beings live in the same way as prescribed in the ancient books, there is no reason anyone should fall sick as the body would be in harmony with its surroundings and that is homeostasis or Ayurvedic healthy living. The Pylori will never dare enter where they are forbidden. They will have what they want to flourish to the extent they are and will not encroach the element fire in the stomach if they are really, really, really burning. This is one reason why I always maintain that body receives germs and germs do not attack body. Germs settle only if there is a condusive atmosphere for their settlement. A natural way of living does permit only what is required to be settled. A beautiful inextricably intervowen mind body link is very much evident here. The mind thinks, desires, decides, and the karmendriyas of the body acts. The result is either health or disease according to what the mind thought. And a Yug or joining of mind and body is yoga, and there is no reason when both are unison that anything shoud go wrong either in the mind or in the body.

There are trillions of living beings the waters of the world are fostering inside them, and that does not pollute those waters. There are millions of creatures inhabiting a tree, but they don't kill the tree, but what makes them hostile is the ecological imbalance whether outside or inside the body.
