Aim: This study aimed at introducing a simple natural remedy for adequate clinical symptomatic relief of Helicobacter pylori dyspepsia.
Background: Helicobacter pylori remains a challenging worldwide medical problem due to its extreme widespread prevalence, the lost quality of life of patients, the economic burden associated with its upper gastrointestinal symptoms and its close relation to acid peptic disease, gastric carcinoma and lymphoma. A massive knowledge has lately evolved concerning rediscovery and treatment of H. pylori; in fact, most of this information is exceedingly in need of re-assessment and redetermination. As acetate exists among the end products in the metabolism of H. pylori; therefore, vinegar could interfere with the energy metabolism and the respiratory chain of the bacterium according to the rules of feedback regulation and product inhibition.
Patients and Methods: 100 Patients were included in this study according to their clinical symptoms and serology testing. Their age ranged between 35-50 years, 11 patients were newly diagnosed. All were given a vinegar-mixed food or salad during meals for 10 days.
Results: 90 patients showed complete disappearance of their clinical symptoms. 7 patients showed incomplete relief of symptoms; their symptoms were relieved after revision of treatment. Recurrence occurred in 3 patients which were easily treated. Disappearance of clinical symptom was considered a clinical cure of symptoms with no need for further testing.
Conclusion: The natural remedy used in this study, acetic acid (dietary vinegar), proved to be simple, costless and effective, even the relief of clinical symptoms was immediate and rather dramatic. It constitutes a simple and decisive solution for the economic burden and the lost patient’s quality of life caused by H. pylori.
