Maybe you never got rid of it.

Hi Carolyn,

So the first question that must be asked is whether you had a repeat test soon after you had treatment last time. Just because you got treated and your symptoms went away does not mean that you actually eliminated your infection was eradicated.

But lets assume that you DID get tested afterwards the last time and your test came back negative so you really are 100% sure that you eradicated your infection. In that case, you need to understand that the H pylori bacteria is EVERYWHERE and it's up to you to keep your immune system strong in order to fight it off again. Asking why you got H pylori again is like asking why you got a cold again when you had it last year. Your immune system is weak, you get exposed and you can't effectively fight it off so you get an infection.

If you are like most Americans, you eat like crap. Even if you follow the 'government guidelines' for eating, you eat only 'whole grains' and 'lots of fruits and vegetables' and think that you eat very well, you probably actually eat horrible and it's contributing to your immune system weakness that allows you to keep getting infected. I highly suggest that you get and follow the instructions in The Healthy Urban Kitchen, a fantastic guide to REALLY eating healthy and not just what you 'think' is healthy.

Next, you are worried about giving your son H pylori, but unless you've had your son tested, he might ALREADY have it and is giving it back to YOU! Millions of people in the world have H pylori without having any symptoms at all- including children.

So, the best thing to do is to get all of your family members tested and treated for H pylori until their infection is eradicated also. If you don't check your family, they may just be giving it back to you every time that you get treated- even though they have no symptoms.

So, I hope that answers your questions. If you want to know more and want specific instructions on how to eliminate your H pylori infection once and for all, get my book The H Pylori Solution.
