Can diet cranberry juice from oceanspray be good as juice to heal h.Pylori and mild gastritis.Also what fruits and food to help heal the infection?
Probably not: The mild gastritis is likely caused by the h. Pylori infection. H pylori is a bacteria that attacks stomach lining. Effective treatment is a 10-14 days of antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor ( like omeprazole) to decrease acid. Lack of treatment may lead to chronic stomach pain and/or stomach ulcers. There is no good evidence that cranberry juice or specific foods are good treatments. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do PPIs completely stop production of stomach acid? If so, how can food continue to be digested? Wouldn't there be increased risk of food borne illnes
Several issues: Of note there are increased risk of GI infectious with PPI use, the strongest association being a bacteria known as "c.diff". There are lesser associations with infections related to the more common food borne bacteria like Campylobacter and Salmonella. PPI's suppress but don't completely stop all gastric acid secretion. Food digestion isn't particularly impaired but certain micronutrients are. ...Read more

Raw food diet is great, but some raw veggies cause gas and bloating for some. How to improve digestion of raw food? #nqlu i'm trying to eat more raw food but get way too much gas or just don't digest some veggies and seeds. I try the food combining sugges
Unfortunately : Unfortunately there is no way around this problem, the issue here is Cellulose (fiber found in raw vegetables) this is a carbohydrate that is very difficult for the human body to digest. For this reason, if a lot is consumed the result is gas, bloating and nausea. You should also be aware that for this reason many of the valuable nutrients in raw vegetables are actually not being absorbed by the body, which defeats the intended purpose of eating this way. I believe that steaming your vegetables would be better on your digestive system, and would give your body more nutrients. On the other hand, you can try using a digestive aid before consuming raw vegetables. Examples of naturally occurring digestive enzymes include aloe vera and papain. These can be found at your local vitamin and herb retailer. Good luck! ...Read more
