This question is not to discuss whether substances that have anti-H. pylori activity work or not, or to discuss the pros and cons of such but from a medical perspective.
Assuming that one is able to control, reduce, or eliminate H. pylori via foods containing natural anti-bacterial activity targeted at H. pylori without the consumption of antibiotics, what is the possibility of reinfection or an overgrowth with H. pylori?
In this study, the bactericidal activity of Korean and Japanese wasabi roots, stems and leaves against Helicobacter pylori were examined... All parts of wasabi showed bactericidal activities against H. pylori strain NCTC 11637, YS 27 and YS 50.
My questions are:
If this method was carried out in vivo and the results were found to be consistent with the research mentioned above, what is the chance of developing resistance to H. pylori?
Will developing resistance prevent recolonization of the stomach lining with H. pylori?
