Third time
by: Kerri Knox, RN The Immune System Queen

Hi Paula,

Lots of people are unable to clear H pylori and continue to have H pylori after 3 sets of antibiotics.

This is a fairly common problem and actually only 1/3 of people eradicate H pylori on the first try. In fact, that is why they have to do 'triple therapy' from the outset, because so many people fail to eradicate H pylori that it takes 3 medications to eradicate it now rather than one.

Also, it could be that you ARE eradicating H pylori and that you are getting it back from someone you have close contact with that is infected and may not even have symptoms.

But if you are truly not actually eradicating it, there are a couple of reasons for this. One of them is that H pylori is becoming more resistant to antibiotics the more that antibiotics are being used. Another reason is that your immune system is too weak to fight off the H pylori. You see, antibiotics only do part of the work, but your immune system has to take care of the rest.

You got H pylori in the first place because of a failure of your immune system to fight off the infection. Simply taking antibiotics not only won't solve this problem, but it might even make it worse by weakening your immune system even further!

So, interestingly, your question was "

The trick is to IMPROVE your immune system before fighting off the H pylori. I discuss at length how to do this in my book The H Pylori Solution and teach you how to eliminate this infection once and for all. do u think theres anything else they can do." and my answer is 'no', there's nothing else your doctors can do, because they will just give you more antibiotics and that will not work. However, there is lots that YOU can do!
