While there are several helpful techniques and medicines available to seek relief against stomach disorders (including often the use of antacids to reduce acidity), many stomach problems can be traced to H. Pylori which needs to be treated / eliminated with right medicine after undergoing proper medical tests.

Here are a number of symptoms / problems involving stomach disorder due to H. Pylori (from Wikipedia): ulcer, acidity, abdominal pain (especially when stomach empty or a few hours after meals), excessive burping, bloating, nausea, heartburn, fever, lack of appetite, weight loss, trouble swallowing, anemia, blood in the stool.

"Beyond The Stomach: An Updated View Of Helicobacter Pylori Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, And Treatment," (by) Traci L Testerman and James Morris (World J Gastroenterol: 2014 Sep 28) ... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4177463/

Abstract:

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is an extremely common, yet underappreciated, pathogen that is able to alter host physiology and subvert the host immune response, allowing it to persist for the life of the host. H. pylori is the primary cause of peptic ulcers and gastric cancer. In the United States, the annual cost associated with peptic ulcer disease is estimated to be $6 billion and gastric cancer kills over 700000 people per year globally. The prevalence of H. pylori infection remains high (> 50%) in much of the world, although the infection rates are dropping in some developed nations. The drop in H. pylori prevalence could be a double-edged sword, reducing the incidence of gastric diseases while increasing the risk of allergies and esophageal diseases. The list of diseases potentially caused by H. pylori continues to grow; however, mechanistic explanations of how H. pylori could contribute to extragastric diseases lag far behind clinical studies. A number of host factors and H. pylori virulence factors act in concert to determine which individuals are at the highest risk of disease. These include bacterial cytotoxins and polymorphisms in host genes responsible for directing the immune response. This review discusses the latest advances in H. pylori pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment. Up-to-date information on correlations between H. pylori and extragastric diseases is also provided.

H. Pylori colonizes multiple sites in the body:
