NOT a food issue: Studies show diet plays no role in eradication of h pylor infection of he stomach (a possible cause of stomach ulcers). However , avoidance of smoking, alcohol, caffeine will help lower the levels of stomach acid. The usual treatment for h pylori includes 3-4 drug regimens including antibiotics and ppi (anti-acid meds, e.g. Prilosec, prevacid). Hope you are better soon!
