I tested positive for all of these in recent stool sample from Metametrix.
What probably caused all of these to form in my intestines?
Does iodine work to get rid of H. Pylori?
What can I use to treat these, that isn't too expensive? I don't want to spend alot of money on something that may or may not work unless there is a significantly high chance it actually does work

Owen, here are the facts:
1) The only clinical studies out there proving successful H. pylori eradication involve taking one or two antibiotics and an acid blocker (ranitidine or omeprazole). I believe there has been a study involving a single dose of these meds but most involve 7-14 day treatments. So if you want proof this is all there is. All other claims are anecdotal.
2) If conventional treatment options are not suitable for you then you have to search what other people have done. I did this last year and came up with very little anecdotal info. You can do the same exercise yourself now and see what happens.
3) In your prior post I am the one who suggest iodine. Iodine is a very potent anti-microbial element, and it is not expensive. It should tamp down on your H. pylori although I cannot say if it will completely eradicate it. It will also smack down Candida and other yeast lurking in your body. Iodine, taken together with selenium (to protect your thyroid), does the body good.
Finally, you will have to do a LOT of research in order to come up with a short list of alternative strategies. Going by the words of myself or any one individual would be foolish.
Best of luck (and health) to you!

This worked for me: http://amyking.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/im-so-happy-i-have-h-pylori/
Clinical studies of manuka honey, momolaurin, and mastic gum are not going to be done because there's no money it.
