Dear Barbara Stephens

You ask me very complicated question, thank you.
I do not know details’ of your condition, so do not take my answer as medical advice.

I see the picture like that.
You had and have H. Pylori; the opportunistic infection that reside also in the stomach. You underwent course of the strong antibiotics and anti microbial meds, stomach acid suppressors. It did not kill your H.Pylori, but wipe out the beneficial, friendly intestinal bacteria causing dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrowth, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth-SIBO) with symptoms like yours.

Indigestion, fermentation with producing gas and toxic substances can lead to deficiency of the vital nutrients. These deficiencies and the toxic substances may cause premature atrial contractions (PAC), stress, anxiety, acid reflux, burping, stomach erosions etc.

If you want to know more about, read my EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1 and 2. Pancreas is core of proper digestion. Go to functional disorders. Healthy diet is vital.

To reverse this condition, you have to restore intestinal beneficial bacteria, replace the deficiencies, decrease internal toxicity, improve digestion, the quality of the pancreatic juice and bile, and reduce stress and possible hormonal changes. I believe that many things can be amended to better.

If you agree that I can be helpful for you, fill up the Biotherapy’s Patient Questionnaire and we will talk by phone

You need changes. You cannot live like that.

I do phone consultations all over the globe.

Have good and healthy New Year 2015.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment.
