H pylori: Rule out infection with h pylori first. Then if you r obese lose weight. If you eat junk food or soda-STOP. If you eat at erratic times then stop.eat an early dinner by 6-6:30 daily. Avoid alcohol except for social occasions.NO STRESS!!! And one more thing-do not any water or fluids with food at least for 90 min, then you drink as much as you want. Follow this for a month to see the benefits
