GERD, Leaky Gut & H. Pylori: Optimum Health Report #361

GERD, Leaky Gut & H. Pylori: Optimum Health Report #361

Dear Readers,

Greetings all!

Did you know that if you have a resistant H Pylori infection, a low nickel diet can improve the treatment success by 50%? We never use antibiotics for H Pylori because our outcomes are nearly perfect with nutrition supplements alone. From now on, I am going to suggest that patients do it for the 6 weeks that they are on the nutritional program. For more information on the low Nickel diet download this file.

Have a great week.

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD


Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is often caused by a spiral shaped bacterium called Helicobacter Pylori (H Pylori).  H Pylori uses its whip-like tail to burrow into the stomach or intestinal walls, causing extreme discomfort.

Acid reflux and heartburn are common digestive conditions that many people experience.  However, when symptoms occur on a weekly basis you may be diagnosed with GERD.  Most people try to manage the discomfort of GERD with over-the-counter medications.

In addition to H Pylori, GERD is caused by frequent acid reflux – the backup of stomach acid or bile into the esophagus.  During the act of swallowing, the lower esophageal sphincter – a circular band of muscle around the bottom part of the esophagus – relaxes to allow food and liquid to flow down into the stomach.  Then it closes again.  However, if this valve relaxes abnormally or weakens, stomach acid can flow back up into your esophagus, causing frequent heartburn.

Patient Testimonial

"Lesley was awesome!! At first I was nervous because of the small space and the heat that I was subjected to but she made me feel very comfortable. Not only was she great but the treatment itself is amazing. It really detoxes you and gives you that energy you didn’t think you had. It overall gives you a sense of well-being that you didn’t think you’d have again."
