Diet Plan for Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori)

H. pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) is a type of bacteria that infects the digestive tract. These microorganisms can enter a body and live in the digestive tract. It can damage the lining in the stomach and upper part of the small intestine and causes inflammation. In extreme cases, it may develop painful sores called peptic ulcers in the upper digestive tract. Any food items which further damage the GI tract is going to be terrible for your healing process. A soft, low-fiber diet is suitable for all gastrointestinal problems. Patients feel more comfortable with less spicy and bland foods because they are easily digestible and help to improve bowel function.
