What is Helicobacter Pylori (H.Pylori)?
Helicobacter Pylori (H.Pylori) is gram-negative bacteria found in the stomach. Research has estimated that H.Pylori, is the most prevalent infection in the world. It affects approximately half the world’s population. Over 80% of people infected with H.Pylori will not realize they have it because they will not have symptoms.
H.Pylori Infection Symptoms
Indicators and symptoms associated with an H.Pylori infection may be:
- Abdominal Pain (not the same pain experienced when balancing check book)
- Weight loss – unintended
- Loss of appetite – not just because food is gross, you don’t want to eat!
- Low B12 Levels (Nervous system ‘needs B-12)
- Elevated Homocysteine Levels – yes, there is a test for this!
- Cognitive Impairment (Rut-Row!)
- Bloating (like a blow fish)
- Burping (like a big dog)
- Nausea (ready to hurl)
- Vomiting (vomit may be bloody or look like coffee grounds – gross)
- Black, tarry stools
Dangers of H.Pylori
H.Pylori is known to be a major cause of peptic ulcer disease and is very common, especially in developing countries. Bacteria and viruses are powerful stimulators of the inflammatory process. Research continues to demonstrate a strong link between infective processes (like H.Pylori) and Alzheimer’s disease. In May 2008, a special issue of The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease explored the topic of infectious disease as a causative factor for Alzheimer’s disease. Scroll down and review the resources. Notice how ‘long’ the list is. Next ask yourself why isn’t a review of a potential infection such as H.Pylori (or Herpes Simplex: Last Post) looked for when signs and symptoms of cognitive impairment manifest – no matter how old the person is who is showing signs and symptoms of cognitive difficulty.
