I was told if I did that you can make it resistant to meds and may requirea stronger med if its not eradicated. Just some advice. God bless

I didn't have symptoms other than a sore throat...had blood work done and was told I had H.Pylori, started the combo pac of the prevacid/biaxin/ 2 amoxicillan...stomach pain is unreal, but subsiding on this 4th day of treatment, the dry/metal taste in my mouth is awful, but at least I know it will end! Since I had no symptoms I'm thinking the h.pylori can't be as bad as the pains I'm experiencing in my stomach from these damn pills...it's the biaxin, have had that before for sinus infections and very hard on your stomach..I am only on the 7 day combo pack...Will be glad when Saturday is over so these pills are GONE!

Guys, I saw a huge choice of antibiotics at http://north-american-discounted.com/products... I bought some generics there and I can say that quality is OK. Really good.

Not taking probiotics would not have saved me from the wrath of mastic gum. As I said before I was in SEVERE pain from it. It was a pain like I have never felt in my life before. So even with probiotic it was still going to have the same outcome. I recently came across a video on you tube where the side effects of mastic gum are listed and severe stomach pain is among them. If you think about it mastic gum is used as an adhesive in surgical threads, it is used in mirrors, paints, varnishes etc, so considering that does that really sound like something people should be consuming? It is toxic and potent and should not be used for consumption period.
you are full of shit mate. Mastic is also used to produce chewing gums. So you're saying chewing gums are toxic?! Maybe you bought some cheap crap online and thats why it happens to you.

I was just diagnosed with H. Pylori, but am hesitant to start triple therapy. I haven't seen one person say it worked for them. Is is successful? And how do you feel 3-6-9 months afterward?

I have h pylori... I first before taking antibiotics I have taken mastic gum Jarrow. I finnished my first bottle and have no success. 1 month later Still have acid reflux, feel really sick all the time, I have taken probiotics and glucosamine along.... I really can say those 2 things work. I have not yet begin treat meant because I wanted to try those things before taking antibiotics to see the real effect first. Mastic gum kills all bacteria good and bad.... this mastic gum is something I can't say if its okay to use. I would not take more than a bottle to be on the safe side. I'm gonna take the antibiotics and lay off mastic gum and begin using probiotics more often. When I felt sick and weak taking 4 probiotics really made me feel normal again. But it wears off after 4 hours and I feel like crap again. Mastic gum is not a for sure thing long term does have serious health effects... it can mess up allot of things. I would use 1 bottle and run away from using it after that

The reason why mastic gum is bad is because it has anti bacteria anti fungi property's.... like antibiotics it disturbs your gut flora network.

It kills all life . Now to kill the bacteria is a must but to be taking for periods of tie is dangerous like antibiotics or antibacteria
