wikipedia.org/wiki Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)
Helicobacter pylori, previously Campylobacter pylori, is a gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium found usually in the stomach. It was identified in 1982 by Australian scientists Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, who found that it was present in a person with chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers, conditions not previously believed to have a microbial cause. It is also linked to the development of duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer. However, over 80% of individuals infected with the bacterium are asymptomatic, and it may play an important role in the natural stomach ecology.
More than 50% of the world’s population harbor H. pylori in their upper gastrointestinal tract. Infection is more common in developing countries than Western countries. H. pylori’s helical shape (from which the genus name derives) is thought to have evolved to penetrate the mucoid lining of the stomach.

Among the most helpful and effective strategies to consider in your wheat removal efforts are:
Take a high-potency probiotic for at least several weeks, longer if an autoimmune condition is present. 30-50 billion CFUs per day has been working very well for us, especially brands with a wide variety of Lactobacillus and Bidifobacteria species, such as
VSL3, Renew Life, and Garden of Life brands.
Bowel flora are like a garden: probiotics are the seeds, prebiotics are the water and fertilizer. If all you do is plant seeds, they may sprout but not flourish, and may even die. So you must nourish your plants. Likewise, you must nourish the bowel flora reinoculated by your probiotic. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria love fibers that are indigestible, what I call “leftovers,” what some call “resistant starches.” Easy ways to obtain such fibers: one green unripe banana per day in a smoothie, one peeled raw white potato in a smoothie, 4 teaspoons of inulin in anything, small servings (1/4-1/2 cup) of legumes, chickpeas, hummus. It is best to start with smaller quantities, then build up over several weeks to avoid abdominal pain and bloating. I believe this issue is Josie’s #1 problem. Note that relief from symptoms requires several weeks to develop, not after your first green banana.

Which should be treated if a patient has both?
SIBO treatment eliminates bacteria, but it would seem this would lead to further dysbiosis and the potential for pathogenic species or yeast to take over.
Treatment of gut dysbiosis typically includes prebiotics to feed beneficial bacteria, but it would seem this would lead to further overgrowth in the small intestine.

Dr. Davis - Posted: 6/8/2015 7:38:47 PM
If a preparation of any prebiotic fiber is truly prebiotic fiber, it should not raise blood sugar. Potato starch is dehydrated at a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning the heat converts some of the prebiotic fibers to sugars, an imperfect process. For this reason, we go lightly with the potato starch, just as you have done.
If the inulin preparation you are using is raising blood sugar, there is something wrong with your specific preparation. It means changing your preparation. What brand were you using?
