H. Pylori Smell

Help. I have been battling this issue since August.  I was diagnosis with H. Pylori and have completed the antibiotic treatments. Prior to being diagnosis with H. Pylori, a horrible odor was being emitted from my body.  It seems to be intestinal and with odor..often smelling like bowel and/or ammonia.

While taking the antiobiotic treatment, I was hopeful that the smell would stop.  It seemed to decrease (although it never completely stopped) during the treatment, but has now gotten worse again.  Different foods tend to trigger worse episodes.  I have been back to my doctor several times and they make me think that I am crazy or that they have never heard of this before.  My last visit..the just told me to take 2 probiotic pills a day for 14 days and then continue with 1 a day.  Then I should contact them in 2 weeks.  I have done everything that has been asked..but NOTHING is working. In the meantime, this smell is taking over my life and I am extremely self-conscious as others can smell it too.

Any suggestions? I am going to try to and find another physician in the meantime.  This is not normal for me and I need to get this resolved.

I don't have any gastric pain, but I do have alternating bouts with constipation and diarrhea. Other than that, my BIGGEST issue is the smell that is emitted from my body.  I feel like I need to "hose down" my insides.  It is rather disgusting.

Hi, teebee1234, I sympathize with you because I have had the same problem for a long time.  I started out with an infected tooth.  Went through alot and I mean alot of antibiotics.  Now, I have this awful body odor that I can't get rid of, it comes and goes.  I used colloidal silver, aloe vera juice, betonite clay, all types of acidofilus pills, but I think the abcess (abscess) drained into the gut and I can't get it out. Try this aloe vera juice 1/2 cup, 1tsb betonite, apple juice (herbal book)  Good luck, franky

i have the same exact problem. I just got kicked out of the bus today because of my odor. It kicks in more after a ciggarette or when i sweat. Its interfered with my social and school life. Im embarrased to go to the doctor because i will stink up the waiting room.  So far i noticed when i drink nothing but water with fresh squeezed lemon in it and eat nothing but fresh pineapple..i have noticed it takes away the smell enogh to be able to be in a room without penetrating it. Im finding different ways what can i do different to take away the smell. If u guys find the answer please let me know.

Take some garlic,Garlic=natural antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal...will help...better to smell like a garlic clove than H.Pylori!! try it, pure, raw or in oil capsules...you must also do the anti-biotic treatment...drink plenty of water, and avoid juices and pop because they contain a lot of sugar, try to eat many small meals instead of 2 or 3 big ones...Try not to go without eating=smell will get worse- I recently had a relative deal with this and the raw garlic on a piece of buttered bread really ,really helped! a bit of baking soda in lukewarm water wil help soothe the acid, but wont cure you...good luck!

I am also experiencing same. My body odor is worse when I go without eating. I am awaiting biopsy results for H Pylori. Are you able to get rid of your body odor?

Go to a vitamin shoppe store ask for Chlorophyll. It comes in liquid bottle.  The liquid is green. It is  usually next to the green powders.  Ask them to stop body odor or go to the the iles  till you find it. Some bottle do say to stop body odors.

Some bottle do say to stop body odors.  It sounds like you caught some type of parasite or bacteria that invaded your gut.  Do cleansings.  Go to the Dr. or a holistic dr. let them do a stool analysis that is the most accurate.  And find out what you have and do alot of research on line.  Doing antibiotics don't work that well anymore.  I am now using virgin coconut oil a tbsp 3xs a day for at least a month.  And oregano oil it has to say wild oregano l and should have at least carvecol 55. I got mine at earth fare.  A nice bottle for 21 dollars 70 carvecol. Use 6 drops in the morning and 6 drops at night.  These items will kill alot of parasites and bacterias like h. pylori, giardia, etc...  Also for larger parasites there is Black green hulk walnut with cloves and something else I forgot but it is in one bottle.  You can find that in earth fare or on line or a vitamin shop.  Good luck.

HP is a bacteria infecting the stomach, it can be treated by doctors (with antibiotics) and/or treated naturally by ingesting DAILY a combination of: 1) probiotics (acidophillus), 2)virgin coconut oil (unrefined), and 3)organic apple cider vinegar (with "the mother" enzymes; found at health food stores). For serious/deep infections add Muaka Honey, Olive Leaf caps, colodial silver, and Vit C (buffered), and other adjuncts, including dietary changes (elimiting acidid foods until your gut is repaired, etc)! For an extensive discusson on these natural methods (by hundreds of people who suffer HP), go to earthclinin ******* click on (tab)Ailments then (box) click H, then look down the list, click H. Pyloria and start reading/posting.
Earthclinic

i just started using apple cider vinegar and probotics.  i use coconut oil for pulling.  I also bought colodial silver, vit c and olive leaf caps.  i'm hoping this works.
