26 1st 4 slides Hello, welcome to this video explaining the damage Helicobacter pylori can cause. As many symptoms as there can be, it is important to understand that helicobacter pylori bacteria causes ulcers and inflammation of the stomach lining. This bacterial infection can have a wide range of symptoms. The same is true for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, Candida Yeast Infections, and a host of other digestive problems. Many times, all of these are interconnected.
8 Ulcers cause a burning pain in the stomach or abdominal region. This is due to this bacteria degrading the mucous layer which protects the stomach lining allowing stomach acid to burn the stomach lining.
10 Pain is often made worse when the concentration of acid in the stomach is stronger. This occurs after eating. Nighttime pain is also common.
10 Helicobacter pylori often is associated with poor appetite, being hungry soon after eating, and weight loss. See how it gets confusing already?
7 Helicobacter pylori is also associated with heartburn, belching, farting, nausea, and vomiting. In addition it can lead to blood in the stool. These symptoms also describe many digestive problems that can not be quantitatively identified. Medical professionals often advise medications which mask the symptoms. Or we self medicate using the wide variety of choices we have at the pharmacies.
9 Depression and worry can set in after not being able to rid yourself of these symptoms. Stress and worry always makes conditions worse. We need confidence we can get better in order to heal.
9 There are many ways to decrease the pain and treat the symptoms with antacids, milk, or the many medications available. These do not in any way cure the ulcer. The condition usually gets worse. They may allow healing for a while making us think they are the answer. Getting rid of the bacterial infection is the only sure way.
15 Helicobacter pylori exploits the protective mucous layer of the stomach lining. It uses the stomach's own mucous layer as its protection. It then infects deep into the stomach lining causing acid to burn through to the muscles and possibly all the way through the lining.
12.5 2 slides When our immune system determines we are infected with Helicobacter pylori, it produces antibodies which attacks the infection. Our killer T-Cells which protect us also try to eliminate the infection. The bacterial population, plus all of the body's protective mechanisms cause a large number of cells to accumulate in the stomach lining. This cause inflammation in the stomach lining due to all the cells battling for survival or elimination.
5 Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach lining.
5 Colitis, is inflammation of the colon, usually the large intestine.
5 Crohn's is continual inflammation of any part of the digestive system.
Ulcerative Colitis is inflammation of the large intestine and rectum.
9 Helicobacter pylori directly causes ulcers by degrading eh mucous layer of the stomach lining allowing acid to burn through the lining.
20 Helicobacter pylori can cause ulcers. This can lead to other problems. Our bodies get out of sync. We treat the problems with medications that do not cure the infection. Our bodies get more confused. We end up with bowel syndromes, gastritis, and lifestyle limitations.
This bacteria is treatable which you can learn about in one of our other digestion Helicobacter Pylori Bacteria video.
Thank you for watching this video. We made this video because this bacterial infection is serious and infects half the world's population. It is often misdiagnosed.
