Clinical outcome of patients with Helicobacter pylori infection: the bug, the host, or the environment?
See!! It’s not just my own rantings and ravings that suggest that it’s not H. pylori, but rather the patients’ poor environment that leads to problems. We know that more lactobaccillus in the stomach means less H. pylori.
We know that Vit C levels are lower in the gastric juices of the patient with H. pylori. We know that H. pylori likes a less acidic environment, which would be readily produced by someone under chronic stress. So, in my own little dream world future, any patient with H. pylori would be counseled on lifestyle changes rather then antibiotics ablation.
