A blood test for H Pylori is not effective and not the Gold Standard for testing. A breath test for H Pylori is.
However, the stomach irritation may be due to the Motrin - that makes sense.
Consider GastroMend over Gastric Repair Complex and consider taking 2 capsules upon waking and 2 capsules upon going to bed. Another capsule may be taken midday between meals.
Adding 10 grams of L-Glutamine Powder to a liter water bottle and drinking throughout the day is also highly recommended.
Manuka Honey is likely not needed at the moment - try without first.
Try to not use the Pepcid at all if you can help it - of course, discontinue use only with your physician's approval.
Also work on limiting ingestion of these foods for now:
- wheat, coffee, tea, chocolate, spices, tomatoes
This way your stomach lining can heal faster.
Your symptoms should greatly improve with GastroMend and L-Glutamine Powder. Should you need further support, do post a follow up question along with how you're doing.
That's great you are doing so well ;)
Definitely continue the supplements for another three months to ensure proper healing. SImply because symptoms have reduced does not mean that you are fully healed in the lining. There are likely areas needing additional support.
It is safe to take these nutrients for an extended period of time.
I would like to see you use something else other than Motrin. I am not sure what you are using it for but there are MANY forms of pain relief and natural anti-inflammatories that are very effective.
Consider Optimal Turmeric by Seeking Health as it contains the most active form of curcumin. Consider taking 2 capsules of Optimal Turmeric as needed - up to three times daily.
Do not take Optimal Turmeric if you are taking MAO inhibititors.
I would also suggest you take 2 capsules of Optimal Fish Oil daily to help reduce inflammation and maintain healthy cell membranes.
And - one other nutrient to help reduce inflammation is Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also useful to help rebuild collagen and other connective tissues which you may find useful for your stomach. Consider taking 1 teaspoon two to three times daily.
