Can I Test Positive for H Pylori and Have No Symptoms

by CD

I had horrible stomach ache about 6 weeks ago and went to the doctor. They did blood test and a breath test and it came back positive for h pylori.

I also felt like I had 2 ulcers in my stomach along with increased stomach acid. So I went the natural route and took broccoli sprout capsules, ate broccoli, took apple cider vinegar, and increased my probiotics. I started getting better and feel great except for a little tweaking of an ulcer every now and then.

So I took another breath test and it again came back positive for h pylori. So my doctor wants me to take two antibiotics and prilosec. But I'm feeling great and am hesitant to take the antibiotics because of candida overgrowth that I've had a lot in the past.

Could the positive result of the h pylori just be a fluke or do I need to take the antibiotics to get rid of it?

You DO Have Symptoms
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi CD,

Yes, you can have H pylori and not have symptoms. Please see my page on Is H Pylori Contagious to see why most people get their H pylori from people without any symptoms.

But you DO have symptoms, so I'm not sure why you are asking such a question in the first place. So, lets see, you had stomach pain bad enough to see a doctor and you still have 'ulcer twinges'. 'Ulcer twinges' and (your words)'HORRIBLE' stomach pain are NOT by any stretch of the imagination 'no symptoms'.

Broccoli sprouts are certainly one way to increase antioxidants, improve your immune system and help to eliminate your infection- unfortunately broccoli sprouts by themselves are not going to eliminate your H pylori. If you don't want to take antibiotics for you H pylori then get my book The H Pylori Solution and learn how to use the correct herbal protocol to get rid of your H pylori permanently.

If you are looking for a shortcut, then don't get the book. You need to have some dedication, change your diet and take the herbal protocol for the FULL amount of time recommended.
