What is Helicobacter Pylori?
Helicobacter pylori is a recurring infection which can cause stomach ulcers, burning of the stomach, belching, bloating and general gastritis. It is caused by an overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori in the stomach lining.
Recurring Helicobacter pylori infection might be caused by emotional triggers and certain aspects of the diet (too much sugar, spicy food or alcohol). As always in any physical condition an emotional component is undeniable.
Our emotions are reflected in our physical bodies. Physical symptoms often can occur in the moments or right after the distress, trauma or shock.
The knowledge of how the person expresses emotions can lead to the indicated homeopathic remedies.
I am sharing some acute remedies that may help with an acute presentation of the Helicobacter pylori infection.
The top 5 Homeopathic remedies are:
1. Nux Vomica
Very irritable, sensitive to all impressions. Cannot bear noises, odours, and light.
Abdominal pain, rumbling and gurgling in the abdomen are present. The abdomen might be distended. Passing the stool brings momentary relief.
Worse morning, after eating, spices, stimulants.
Better in the evening, in damp, wet weather.
2. Arsenicum album
Great anguish and restlessness, great fear with cold sweats.
Changes the place continually.
Burning pain in the abdomen with marked anxiety. Burning is very severe as if coals of fire. Nausea and vomiting after eating or drinking may also be present.
Worse wet weather, after midnight, from cold drinks, cold drinks or food.
Better from heat, warm drinks.
Fearfulness, oversensitive to external impressions. Excitable, produces heat all over.
Gastritis caused by H. pylori, marked pain and burning in the stomach relieved by cold food or drinks. The pain extends to the throat and intestines. The pain gets worse even from touching.
Worse physical or mental exertion, warm food or drink, evening.
Better cold food, cold, sleep.
Timid, unable to decide. Apprehensive, despondency. indecision.
Gastric ulcer caused by Helicobacter pylori. Symptoms including burning in the abdomen, belching and nausea are better after eating or drinking.
Worse warmth, at night. Better from wrapping up, in the dark.
5. Nat Phos
Close down easily when hurt. Fear that something will happen, aggravation at night. Fears of footsteps in the next room.
Belching of sour and acrid nature. Water brash symptoms might be present along the belching. Intense acidity and flatulence are also marked.
Worse mental exertion, sugar, milk fat.
Better by eating, after food.
Recurring Helicobacter pylori infection
As a homeopath in case of recurring Helicobacter infection, I would consider homeopathic remedies like nosodes e.g, Helicobacter pylori nosode and other remedies like bowel nosodes.
Nosodes work on a deep level to prevent reoccurrence and clear susceptibility to digestive infections. When we work with a homeopath it often takes a few remedies and a series of follow-ups to see a greater change. It is a process but it’s all worth it.
