This is very helpful information. I have been self treating for H. Pylori and have been experiencing the bad body odor, acne break outs, nausea, and upset stomach. Was trying to figure out if those were die-off symptoms.

Hey again. My stomach symptoms started last August while I was on antibiotics for Lyme. I started having having abdominal pain plus a churning feeling in my stomach, plus fatigue, muscles aches, and I had lost about 25 lb in a month. At the time, I had thought it was still effects from the lyme but it went on for a few months. Eventually I started having bad digestive stuff, like bloating and indigestion and a general foul feeling in my stomach, which was food sitting in there for too long I am guessing. I have also had this brain fog since the lyme. In January I went to the dr and got the pylori test which was positive. I did the horrible antibiotics which failed and probably took years off of my life. I was taking probiotics afterwards and got myself feeling pretty okay at one point, but my digestion was still a bit whacked, and other symptoms eventually came back.
That was when I decided to try the mastic, since I knew the next course of antibiotics would be worse. That was maybe 4 months ago. I tried a few things along with it since then. Broccoli sprout supplements didn't really help, garlic wasn't helpful either, colostrum was effective but started giving me strange side effects so i stopped it. I am still taking lactoferrin since it supposedly helps with iron and I suspect I am short, but I am not sure if it is helping or not. I am still pretty fatigued and achy. I was about ready to give in and get my prescription of poison when I tried the honey. That was maybe 2-3 weeks ago. I think the honey may be even better than the mastic. I upped the honey and mastic to 3x a day 1.5 weeks ago, and that was seriously helpful. I went through a heavy die-off and now my head feels a lot more clear and my digestion is a lot better. My fatigue and muscle aches haven't really improved at all, but I am hoping that will improve with time. My body probably just needs a break and time to recover. I haven't really let up on my treatment since I started. I was worried that the pylori would strengthen again if I stopped treatment prematurely. I don't know, this whole year has been a battle. I'm glad things have been better for you.

Thanks for sharing. I am going through a similar process. So far, mastic has been my best friend, and I recently found that the manuka honey(umf 15+) has a similarly powerful effect against the pylori. It is a bit expensive though since it is shipped from new zealand.
