Mastic Gum is a natural resin from a small tree, Pistacia Lentiscus, which is grown in Greece. Used for centuries by traditional healers for ulcers, stomach distress, and heartburn, it is a material that has been used for 3,000 years from the time of the ancient Greeks for upper gastrointestinal ailments such as indigestion. The New England Journal of Medicine recently reported on Mastic Gum’s ability to kill the Helico Pylori bacteria which is now implicated in the causation of most stomach ulcers and acid reflux disease and is considered to be associated with gastric cancer. The medical community has now universally accepted the fact that the eradication of H.pylori can treat and prevent ulcers and GERD (gastro esophageal disease). The latest scientific research show that mastic gum also protects the gastric and duodenal tissue from developing deadly gastric cancer and lymphoma.
Clinically tested and formulated Helico Rx+™ lso contains L-Glutamine to recondition and heal the stomach lining, the Plant Enzymes (amylase, lipase and cellulose), Calcium to aid digestion and soothe stomach distress and Vitamins B1 and Folic Acid for improved digestive function. In recent years, Helicobacter pylori(H. Pylori)has been identified as the causative agent in gastric and duodenal ulcer(gastrointestinal ulcers) formation. H. pylori is a bacterium that lives in the stomach and duodenum. It has a unique way of adapting to the harsh environment of the stomach.
The New England Journal Medicine recently reported on the ability of Mastic Gum’s ability to kill and eradicate H. pylori infection and thereby cure peptic ulcers very rapidly. We have found that Mastic Gum and HelicoRx+ is active against Helicobacter pylori, which could explain its therapeutic efficacy in patients with peptic ulcers. Gastric juice is composed of digestive enzymes and concentrated hydrochloric acid which can readily digest food or kill micro-organisms. Low levels of stomach acid increase the chance of 소 organism’s survival. Therefore, many of the currently used acid-blocking medications actually allows H. Pylori to thrive. The stomach is protected from its own gastric juice by a thick layer of mucus that lines the digestive tract. H. pylori takes advantage of this protection by living in the mucus lining.
Once H. pylori is safe in the mucus, it is able to fight the stomach acid that does reach it with an enzyme it possesses called urease, which creates urea, of which there is an abundant supply in the stomach(from saliva and gastric juices), into bicarbonate and ammonia, which are strong bases and neutralize the acid. This creates a cloud of acid-neutralizing chemicals around the H. pylori protecting it from the acid in the stomach. The breath test method of diagnosis relies on this reaction being present. Contributing to the protection of H. pylori is the fact that the body’s natural defenses cannot reach the bacterium in the mucus lining of the stomach. The immune system will respond to an H. Pylori infection by sending white cells, killer T cells and other infection fighting agents. However, these potential H. pylori eradicators cannot reach the infection because they cannot easily get through the stomach lining.
They do not, however, just go away but the immune system response just grows and grows. White cells die and spill their destructive compounds(superoxide radicals)on the stomach lining cells. Extra nutrients are sent to reinforce the white cells and the H.pylori can feed on this. Within a few days, gastritis and perhaps a duodenal ulcer may occur. It may not be the H. pylori itself which causes peptic ulcer, but the bodies own response(inflammation of the stomach lining). H. pylori is believed to be transmitted orally by fecal matter through ingestion of waste-tainted water or food. In addition it is possible that H, pylori could be transmitted from the somach to the mouth through gastro esophageal reflux or belching. The bacterium could then be transmitted through the oral contact. Helico Rx+™ is a 100% natural and safe solution to this problematic infection.
RECOMMENDATION FOR H. PYLORI INFECTION:
● Mastic Gum- Mastic gum kills H. pylori
● Tea tree Oil, taken internally, is reported to be useful in killing H.pylori when taken at 15 drops of 100% strength twice daily.
● Increased Water Consumption – Drinking more water alone has resolved many cases of H. pylori infection. The suggested amount is 1 quart per 50 pounds of body weight.
● Essential Fatty Acids – Essential fatty acids have the ability to inhibit the growth of H, pylori and suppress acid production.
If you have any of these symptoms, call your doctor right away:
● Sharp, sudden, persistent stomach pain
● Bloody or black stool
● Bloody vomit or vomit that looks like coffee grounds. They could be signs of a serious problem, such as
● Perforation – when the ulcer burrows through the stomach or duodenal wall.
● Bleeding – when acid or the ulcer breaks a blood vessel.
● Obstruction – when the ulcer blocks the path of food trying to leave the stomach
