RESEARCH suggests that more than half of the world’s population may have a Helicobacter pylori infection. The bacteria can cause gastro intestinal problems, including gastritis and other stomach complaints.
Risk factors for contracting the H. pylori bacteria include contaminated food and water supplies, along with poor hygiene. A special diet for Helicobacter pylori can help ease some of the symptoms, particularly for those with gastritis. Dietary recommendations for gastro intestinal problems include plenty of fiber, fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds, along with legumes and beans.
Dietary recommendations are important for anyone with an H. pylori infection.
