Hi! :)

I've been doing very well on this diet, though I would like to heal my stomach a bit more. Thank you for everything so far, Dr. D! :D

I suspect I may have some H. pylori in my stomach, and would like to try out bismuth.

"Standard Medical Strategy

The therapy recommendation for eradication of H. pylori is triple regimens comprising colloidal bismuth subcitrate (2 tablets (512mg) four times dailt with meal), either amoxicillan (2 grams/day in divided doses) or tetracycline (500 mg three times daily), and metranidazole (250 mg three times daily with meals). A minimum of two weeks seems needed for elimination of the bacteria in order to better prevent relapse within a 12-month period. Lasting remission is estimated at 84%."
-Dr. D

Where am I able to get this type of colloidal bismuth? Does it need to be colloidal? I know Pepto-bismol has additives such as talc, aluminum, and red. I also realize that Gastro-D contains bismuth citrate, but would just like to try out the bismuth solo.

How is colloidal bismuth subcitrate different from citrate?

Where do you purchase your favorite bismuth products other than Gastro-D?

I believe that one should confirm the diagnosis by a doctor before taking, colloidal bismuth subcitrate.

The FDA does as well, so if you are in the US you will need to get a prescription before buying colloidal bismuth subcitrate.
