Regardless of whether you have been fighting your H. pylori infection for many months or are newly diagnosed, there is no doubt that the majority of the traditional approaches to treating it can be more than a little terrifying. The good news is that you do not have to follow that advice and it is an important idea to consider attacking the problem from different fronts for a quicker and more effective treatment. The first thing that you need to know is which foods provide H. pylori with the nutrition it needs to thrive, so you can avoid those foods at all times.
By remembering just three little words the next time that you are grocery shopping, you can begin to improve your health. Gluten, caffeine and soy should no longer be a part of your diet for the foreseeable future….and the following information will make it very clear as to why.
Avoiding Gluten is Tough but Can Provide Great Results
Gluten and the issues that many people have with it have become a virtual plague in recent years. It will frequently prompt allergic reactions, gastric distress and can raise the blood sugar of people who otherwise have no blood sugar problems. Plus, even for people without abnormal gluten sensitivity, it is often known to cause a lot of excess irritation, during the digestion process, in the small intestines. Therefore, when you have H. pylori and eat gluten, you may feel as if your gut never stops hurting. Try eliminating it with your new treatment plan and see how quickly your symptoms improve.
Caffeine to H. pylori can be like a Welcome Home Party
The cup of coffee, quick gulp of tea or glass of ice-cold soda may give you the bolt of energy that you need to get going in the morning, but it can also be the good morning the h. pylori needs to wake up each day as well. That is because caffeine in any form, even in small amounts, stimulates the adrenal glands and over time, can contribute to adrenal gland fatigue. That would be one of the last things that you should do, when you consider that being constantly no tired for no apparent or obvious reason is a common symptom of the H. pylori infection.
In addition, caffeine will frequently irritate the lining of your stomach. That is also a common problem known as known as gastritis and even for people that are not afflicted with H. pylori, is frequently quite painful. When you already have this virulent type of bacteria living in your stomach, it is never a good idea to introduce anything into the stomach that can further stress its lining, so it is time to try out some of the caffeine-free hot and cold beverages currently on the market.
Soy is not Always as Healthy as People Seem to Think it is
In recent years, soy has frequently been touted as a wonder-food that solves everyone’s problem. In fact, the long lives and slow physical symptoms of aging enjoyed by many Japanese people have been credited by some to the level of soy often seen in their diet.
However, one unfortunate fact that many people are not always aware is that in Japan, soy is the food most likely to cause allergic reactions. It is also thought to have estrogen mimicking properties that can disrupt the normal hormonal balance of both men and women, regardless of their age. When you remember that your hormonal balances is known to impact your immune system, which will often make defeating the bacteria even harder, it is easy to see why you should consider avoiding soy until you are healthy once again.
Fortunately, the following chart will help you to be sure of a few of the most common foods and beverages that should not be in your diet when you are recovering from H. pylori.
