I clrK J a brew brimming with H. pylori and drank it himself! Two weeks later, as expected, he developed the agonizing pain of stomach ulcers. His stomach contained the same amount of acid it always had, but now H. pylori was present. His ulcers responded to the old antacid treatment, but the antibiotics he took eradicated the H. pylori, so he never developed ulcers again. But even this dramatic and courageous demonstration didn't convince Barry's colleagues.

If you get it as an adult, it's more likely to lead to ulcers than to cancer. When ulcers are eradicated by antibiotics, they rarely recur. So the modem, effective way to manage ulcers even those caused by aspirin or other antiinflammatory drugs is to reduce the acid content of the stomach to heal the ulcers and to start a 10- to 14-day regimen of antibiotics to get rid of H. pylori. In the acute stage, when ulcers are "hot," you should avoid caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and aspirinlike drugs. After that, eat anything you like, even chili peppers. Forget about diets and psychiatrists. Surprisingly, this ulcer breakthrough has not spread like wildfire through the hallowed halls of medicine. Patients with ulcers are still not being tested for H. pylori as often as they should (it's easily done with a breath test or a simple blood analysis) or being given antibiotics to get rid of the bacterium. I still meet people with ulcers who are being treated for the symptoms but not the cause. So here's my advice: If you have been diagnosed with ulcers and have not been tested for, pylori andor had antibiotics prescribed to eradicate it, remind I JiUittyi .m mm ro CHANNEL CAPACITY1.
