Answer*: Yes, you can use digestive enzymes while treating naturally for H. pylori infection. We absolutely prefer plant-based enzymes for a number of reasons that can be found on www.masterthebody.com
We use digestive enzymes in the Master The Body Clinic on a regular basis in addition to the natural treatments that are clinically proven to kill the H. pylori infection. We have found that digestive enzymes can significantly help in the process of recovery and aiding digestion while cleaning the gut of infections.
Many times there are multiple infections in addition to H pylori, this has been proven many times over using PCR stool testing. Regardless of additional infections, we have found that enzymes can play a significant role in recovery after the removal of the infectious agents. This empirically seems to allow for repair of the gut lining at an increased pace.
In the meantime, the enzymes help the person digest significantly better and reduce symptoms until a recovery is made.
