Background: This distance client is no new comer to holistic medicine or the health care industry in general. This client is a self-made man in industry utilizing nutritional products. This client had been treated, unsuccessfully for H. pylori and other GI issues. We had our consultation and based on his laboratory tests I came-up with a specific protocol and recommended some lifestyle modifications. As you can see the protocol was successful. There were no pharmaceutical used in this protocol.
H. pylori eradicated without antibiotics
Hello Dr. Ettinger,
Just a quick thank you note and a recommendation to others.
I was told by my doctor that I had H. pylori and it needed to be handled. She told me it would require three antibiotics. I’m one who prefers not to put antibiotics in my body because I got addicted to them earlier in my life and ended up “having” to take them for 5 years. I was told that I would be sick if I didn’t take them all the time. It took me an equal number of years for my body to be able to heal itself after that. Do NOT believe anyone who tells you that antibiotics do not lower your body’s own defense. I have been completely drug free and sickness free since 1995. So I was very surprised when I learned I had h pylori.
I began my research on the web to cure h. pylori naturally. I followed two website’s protocol for 3 months. I was very disciplined on their protocol but kept testing positive. I then read Dr. Marcus Ettinger’s site and called him. He was extremely professional and very helpful and sensitive to my concerns. He recommended a natural protocol and I followed it for 34 days. BioHealth Diagnostic’s test #418 (Helicobacter pylori Antigen) came back negative.
I highly recommend everyone try his program before subjecting your body to antibiotics or other protocols.
Thank you Dr. Ettinger.

Hi!., just finished my second dosage of antibiotics to try and kill this HPylori bug..took the first Prevpac on Feb 2 and just finished yesterday..April 28 the Pylera antibiotic & want to know how soon can I get retested for HPylori and what is a natural remedy to Keep this bug away??? Any suggestions will be appreciated…tks!
You can get a stool test as soon as you want. HCl with and between meals is the best, supplemental, defense. The best defense of all is don’t kiss or share a glass… with anyone who has it.
I will look into a stool sample..what is HCI? Thank U for your quick response…I really appreciate it!:D
HCl = Hydrochloric Acid
I need help, stomach aches for 5 months, 3 months ago, was diagnosed with H. pylori, took Prevpac, then I was taking PeptoBismol, I stopped the bismol and 9 days later tested negative on stool, 5 days later endoscopy showed no H. pylori but massive inflammation in stomach and esophagus, I find it hard to believe its eradicated. I feel worse joint, spine, muscle pain, heart racing and don’t know what to do? Please advise.
It sounds like you have some residue erosive gastritis or what is called Eosinophilic esophagitis. You may also have or have developed a sensitivity to some foods, like: starch (wheat, corn, rice, potato…), dairy and/or beans. I recommend following what is called, “The Simple Carbohydrate Diet”. http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info/. There are many website resources for this diet. You should also read the book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle. It might explain why you are still experiencing symptoms.
I hope this helps. If you need some personalized help, I do offer a distance patient program. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if interested in more information on this program.
I was diagnosed with H. Pylori about 6 months ago. I was first administered two antibiotics and a PPI. After that failed I just took OTC Omeraprazole for about 4 months, 60 mg’s a day for the last month. I am currently seeing a homeopathic practitioner, not taking any PPI’s, and am on a pre- treatment plan that is both dietary and a certain type of homeopathic prep. It is affecting my life in horrible ways. Constant acid reflux that is very painful and uncomfortable. difficulty in gaining muscle mass. Sensitivity to almost anything I eat. Life is just extremely painful and uncomfortable. I am trying to stay away from dairy and gluten as the doctor advised, and am doing a pretty good job at doing so. I will do whatever it takes to get rid of this sickness. What can I do and how can I get in contact with you Dr. Ettinger? -Caleb
Here is a link to my distance patient application – http://www.advancedhealing.com/dr-marcus-ettinger-chiropractor-forms-hand-outs/distance-patient-program/. I can definitely help. I have been helping patients with H. pylori for over 4 years now and have a good handle on what it takes to get rid of it.
I am on day 9 of a 14 day amox + clarithromycin round. I was diagnosed last Wednesday with blood. I am having all kinds of anxiety, I feel depressed. I can drink ad eat, although eating is very hard to do.The Anxiety is synergizing with the infection and the side effects of the treatment. I don’t know how to cope. Is there any type of food or medication you could suggest so that I can consult my GP. I understand to ask for these recommendations over the internet is not standard protocol but I am desperate. I feel as though the symptoms I was originally reporting have only improved marginally, the stomach is still hurting, the back is still hurting, the anxious feeling is there. I only have small moments wherein I feel wellness or any sense of health.
Cody, sorry for the delay. You should be done now with the protocol. I hope your symptoms have improved. If not, find a coach (another type of doctor) versed in holistic medicine who can assist you in rebuilding your GI system. Standard, allopathic, medicine doesn’t have much to offer you in that department. The book, “Breaking the vicious Cycle” might be a good place to start. It’s 60 pages of reading and inexpensive. Go to Amazon.com and buy a used copy – less than $10.
Hello doc. January 15, 2015 I desperately need help with this bug, I have tried antibiotic, natural remidies all of which to no avail. I live in the West Indies and will like to take another trip to America just for the sake of getting rid of my pylori bacteria. Do you have an hospital or do you know of a place where I can stay and be treated for this bacteria. Sometimes I wonder if I really have pylori or some other thing my stomach is constantly filled with acid and gas every day. I am suffering for three years my home is not the same, every thing around me is falling apart aim prepared to do just what it takes for me to be healed.
Llewelyn, Sorry for the delay. I do offer a distance patient program – link here – http://www.advancedhealing.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Distance-Patient-Program-revised-8-15a.pdf
There are many conditions that produce symptoms like H. pylori. I have actually found that more people have their symptoms for other reasons. Meaning, once their H. pylori has been cleared they still experience the exact same symptoms. Their conditions may be (SIBO, lack of certain digestive enzymes, lack of HCL, food allergies, bile reflux, and a few others. Here is another reason for such symptoms (book – “Dropping Acid” )https://www.google.com/search?q=Dropping+Acid%3A+The+Reflux+Diet+Cookbook+%26+Cure&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
I can help if you need me. Just let me know.
