H. pylori and essential oils

Some essential oils recommendations for individuals with an H. pylori infection (from the Everything Essentials google group). I am compiling this information for a loved with one who has H. pylori...

Dr. Hill's recommendation:
  • Digestzen
  • lemongrass
  • oregano
  • 3-4 drops of each in a capsule until symptoms subside 
  • This is a hot protocol. If it's too hot for you, then add some fractionated coconut oils to the capsule.
In a scientific study, lemongrass was found to be more effective against H. pylori than Clarythromycin (an antibiotic often used for H. pylori), and also H. pylori did not develop an immunity to Lemongrass, while it did develop immunity to the antibiotic. 
    Natalie Rigby's Recommendation (read her daughter's inspiring story here).
    • 6 drops of peppermint
    • 6 drops of DigestZen
    • 2 times a day, and then once a day when things settle down.
    • PB Assist is highly recommended.  
    As a variation of this, I've also seen the following recommendation:
    • 4 drops of DigestZen
    • 4 drops of Peppermint
    • 2-3 times per day
      Recommendation 3
      • 3 drops On Guard
      • 3 drops lemon
      • 3 drops DigestZen
      • 3xs a day before meals
      • Muscle test for how long to stay on the protocol (one individual needed it for 15 days)
      Recommendation 4
      • 3-4 drops of DigestZen in water every couple hours
      •  rub DigestZen, Clove and Frankincense on the stomach area, use some fractionated coconut oil to dilute.
      • 1 capsule of PB Assist 3 times a day with food
      • Drink room temp water with lemon to help flush the toxins.
      Recommendation 5
      • Use the GX Assist cleanse for 10 days, followed by PB Assist.
      • Repeat the cleanse 3 times with a 14 day rest between each time. 
          Life Long Vitality supplements are also recommended.

          Read Natalie's daughter's story at I am doTERRA:
          • rubbing DigestZen on her daughter's stomach helped her chronic H. pylori infection.

          • "I will never forget the first time we applied the oil "Digestzen" to her stomach. Within 1 minute, she sighed with relief. I was sold if it would just bring her relief from the pain. It was not even 2 week later that she was eating & feeling normal again."

            Other stories

            I used 3-4x per day: capsule with 3 drops oregano, 3 drops lemongrass, 3 drops digestZen. If it keeps coming back, I recommend quitting gluten. I also recommend digestive enzymes. - Jennifer


          1. how often do you need to do Dr. Hills protocol per day....

          2. Could I rub dr. Hills recommendation instead of taking capsule

            1. I suspect that the capsule would be more effective, but you can try topically on your abdomen.
