The digestive process is a process through which our body absorbs nutrients from food and distributes them throughout the organs and tissues. The process is supported by beneficial bacteria in our gut which play an important role. However, these bacteria can easily get overwhelmed and destroyed by harmful bacteria types, resulting in impaired digestion and the development of numerous diseases and conditions.
In the past, doctors thought that the acidity of the digestive juices in the stomach can destroy any type of bacteria, but recent studies have shown that bacteria such as H. Pylori can survive the acids and still grow, and half of the world’s population lives with it. Although not many people are aware of it, H. Pylori can be found in almost anyone’s stomach, and although pretty dormant, it can be quite destructive.
H. Pylori has the ability to lodge itself in the intestinal tract and adapt to the environment. It can also develop antibiotic resistance, and slowly chip away the mucosal lining and destroying the beneficial bacteria. In this way, it opens the door for numerous minor and life-threatening diseases and conditions.
In general, the most common symptoms of H. Pylori infection are high acidity in the stomach, bloating, nausea, vomiting, stomachache and sensitivity to certain foods. Although it’s usually treated with antibiotics, due to the antibiotic resistance, it’s better to fight the bacterium naturally. Below you can see a recipe for a simple drink that will fight H. Pylori effectively and treat any problems related to it.
