There was a lot of mention of h.pylori on this forum. From what I gather, candida and h.pylori go hand in hand.Search the forum, there are some testimonies here from last year of people battling h.pylori and few that got rid of it naturally.
The diet you are on (anti-candida) works for both, but the treatment is a bit different. I think that coconut oil is also effective against h.pylori as well as garlic. Some got lucky with mastic gum treatment just for h.pylori overgrowth.
It’s up to you, but in my opinion, if you do those antibiotic rounds, you will destroy all the hard work you did for 11 months. Also, look it up online, when doctors suspected I have it, I googled the issue and found lots of posts where people claim multiple rounds of antibiotics did not help them get rid of it permanently. It is kind of logical. The problem exists because of disbiosis, so you can kill it, but it will grow back if your gut flora is not where it should be.
I too have secondary bacterial infection (no more funghi in the exam, yaaay) and was prescribed antibiotics, but am looking for alternatives right now and will try those first. I used the test informatively only, to know what am I fighting with actually at the moment 🙂
Best of luck to you!
