To further help rosacea sufferers the clinic have launched a weekly newsletter, in the newsletter the clinics experts will provide tips to help rosacea sufferers. In this weeks newsletter the clinic look at Helicobacter Pylori and Candidiasis.
Below is some of the information the clinic will be sharing this week:
Helicobacter Pylori is the only bacteria able to survive in the human stomach, due to the strong acidic contents (gastric juice). The lining of the stomach is protected by a thick mucus that acts as a barrier between the stomach lining and the potent acid, preventing the lining itself from being digested.
H Pylori has developed an exclusive way of burying itself in this mucous barrier and protecting itself thereafter. If adequate stomach acid were present, this action of burying itself might be prevented. However, once H Pylori escapes this first defence (sufficient HCl) and buries itself in the mucosal layer, it excretes an enzyme called urease that converts urea into bicarbonate and ammonia which are strong bases that neutralise acid. Since both gastric juice and saliva, mixed with our food from chewing, provide an abundant supply of urea, the presence of H Pylori and the urease enzyme results in a much less potent acid and certain survival for H Pylori.
H Pylori infection is strongly associated with the development of ulcers that are thought to come about by two possible mechanisms. One being the host’s increase in stomach acid secretion (an attempt to overcome the constant neutralising effects of urease), and the second being the immune system attempts at destroying H Pylori. This is nearly impossible since immune cells cannot easily reach the stomach’s mucosal barrier. Immune antibody production increases and increases in a vain attempt to attack H Pylori, which subsequently causes erosion of the mucosal barrier and the development of ulcers.
Most people infected with H Pylori will also have a yeast overgrowth, and if traditional treatment for an H Pylori infection is undertaken, yeast overgrowth will certainly follow or become worse, due to the destruction of beneficial bacteria by the use of two very potent antibiotics.
Candidiasis is yeast overgrowth, yeasts are naturally present in the human body in small quantities, on the skin, in the throat, and in the intestines. They are thought to play some minor protective role when kept in check. One particular yeast, called Candida, is an opportunistic yeast that has a canny survival mechanism. When it is permitted to grow excessively (via poor beneficial bacteria levels or a suppressed immune system) it can mutate from a yeast into a fungus that grows root-like structures that are able to penetrate the gut wall and enter the blood system uninvited. This is a major causative factor in the development of Food Intolerances.
Overgrowth of yeasts, particularly Candida, is most commonly caused by the use of antibiotics. Candida Albicans is the most common yeast to cause problems to humans and keeping it in check is vital to long term health.
