The obvious answers are: "Very", and "Go to a Dr.", I know, but:
I've been reading a bit and I'd like to hear your opinions on whether eradication of the bacterium is a good idea in the absence of any symptoms and the fact that according to some, the bug might be a normal denizen of the gut, and might even be beneficial.
Then, if eradication were to be chosen, is there a way to do it without antibiotics? I'm looking for evidence-based options.
