More Likely to Be H Pylori
by: Kerri Knox, The Immune System Queen

Your problem is more likely to be The H Pylori Bacteria. Interestingly, the H Pylori bacteria can lead to Vitamin B12 Deficiency. However, the cause of the bad breath (if it's due to that) would be due to the H pylori and not the Vitamin B12 Deficiency. In other words both bad breath and Vitamin B12 deficiency are SYMPTOMS of the H pylori bacteria.

Although, this is just speculation about your bad breath. There are many causes of bad breath that have nothing to do with H pylori. But if you think that might be the problem, it's worth getting an In-home H Pylori Stool Test. It's simple, easy and cheap to find out if you have the H pylori bacteria.
