So what is the definition of a Stomach Ulcer?

Stomach ulcers are also found outside of the stomach…

When we use the term ‘Stomach Ulcers’ we include all types of ulcers found in the gastrointestinal tract.

Defining a stomach ulcer is not as clear-cut as you will see. There are many definitions out there with the medical fraternity seemingly competing to see who can come up with the longest, most technical version. For example;

“A raw or inflamed area of the stomach lining.” or…
“A Peptic ulcer is an ulcer of one of the areas of the gastrointestinal tract that is usually acidic.” or…
“A break in the stomach lining that allows acid and digestive juices to damage the tissues beneath the lining. It can cause vomiting, pain, and bleeding.” or…
“A necrotic lesion characterized by a crater-like erosion of the stomach wall (gastric ulcer) or the duodenum (duodenal ulcer) often associated with painful symptoms.”

The simplest definition of a stomach ulcer…

A stomach ulcer is a small hole or erosion that has formed in the lining of the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum. It is not much more than that!

While it sounds simple, it is a fairly serious condition that deserves proper care and attention. Part of that will be determining what caused the ulcer – so getting a proper diagnosis is crucial to getting the right treatment.

Over 885 million people have stomach ulcers right now, and some of them may not even be aware that a stomach ulcer could be the cause of their abdominal aches and pains.

Who are most prone to stomach ulcers?

Adults older than 40 years of age are most susceptible to gastric ulcers while nearly 1 in 10 of all adults in Western countries are affected by peptic ulcers. This figure is even higher in third world countries.

Younger people are not immune – they are simply less likely to be affected. The likelihood of getting an ulcer is directly related to age – so as a rough guide we can assume a 1-year-old has a 1% chance of getting a stomach ulcer, while an 80-year-old has an 80% chance.

Are ulcers dangerous?

Most ulcers are not dangerous, but when left too long they can cause internal bleeding. Of course, massive bleeding can prove to be fatal. Click here to find out more about bleeding ulcers.

The most common type of ulcer found in patients in Western countries is the duodenal ulcer. Left unattended, any type of ulcer can prove to be dangerous.

Can stomach ulcers be cured?

Yes, most ulcers can be cured. The treatment of ulcers will differ according to the type of ulcer you may have. If you are infected with H. pylori then we recommend you try our proven natural remedy.

Our Natural Health team has accumulated a wealth of information on H. pylori and has compiled an informative and essential report which contains everything you should know about H. pylori.

Defining a stomach ulcer is just the start – this information is a collection of the knowledge and experience gathered from doctors around the world treating their own patients in their own practices – and we sincerely hope this information will give you the edge in making an informed decision about your treatment.

Some good advice on avoiding ulcers…

See your doctor for a diagnosis if you have any symptoms. To be really safe, you should ask your doctor to check you out for an H. pylori infection as this is the cause of over 80% of all stomach ulcers.

In Western countries, about 20% to 30% of people under the age of 40 have the bacteria, while it infects around 50% – 60% of people over age 60. Not all people infected with H. pylori will get an ulcer – some people’s digestive systems can tolerate the presence of H. pylori and may not be affected at all.

Painkillers and Anti-inflammatory drugs

Reduce your intake, or even better, stop taking painkillers that contain ibuprofen or aspirin for prolonged periods. Too many people take these for the tiniest of pains, not knowing they could be setting themselves up for the far worse pain that an ulcer is going to cause them!

Eat the correct foods

Although food does not cause ulcers, good nourishment is always a good idea. Statistics show that ulcers are more common amongst undernourished people. An easy-to-follow diet can help you become aware of the food sources that can cause an increase in acid levels.

Aim for a healthier lifestyle

Your stressful job will not cause an ulcer, and neither will an average intake of alcohol. Smoking in moderation is a bit riskier. Not one of these habits is going to really hurt you, but by pushing any of these to excess (and/or a combination of these), you are setting the stage for stomach ulcers, especially if you are infected with H. pylori.

What causes ulcers?

If you don’t know what causes ulcers, then you won’t know how to avoid ulcers in the future – click here to find out more.

How can you tell a GOOD treatment from a bad one?

First and foremost, any good treatment MUST work! And a good treatment is one that is aimed at the cause of the ulcer. In over 80% of cases this will be an infection of H. pylori.

Second, a good treatment should work without causing any negative side effects. These should be your own minimum requirements when seeking effective treatment, but added to this should be two other things that most people forget about – clinical and/or scientific proof, and a guarantee.

REMEMBER! The main cause of all types of stomach ulcers is Helicobacter Pylori infection. This is the primary target in the treatment of ulcers!

Are you ready to get rid of H. pylori safely – without any nasty side effects?

The proven cause of 80 – 90% of all types of stomach ulcers is H. pylori – a hardy bacteria which has become resistant to the most commonly prescribed treatments already.

We hope that you have already figured out why most doctors are not telling you all the facts about H. pylori treatments. We also hope that what you are about to discover here will help you to avoid taking any treatment that may not work for you.

Sincerely grateful for your help!!!*

I spoke with you on the phone about 4 weeks ago. I’m the one who wasn’t sure if I took the tea properly because I had cereal at night sometimes before taking the tea. I thought I was going to need to re-take the 30-day course, but you encouraged me to go ahead and send in a stool sample to BioHealth Diagnostics (to who I had sent my first stool sample) to see if I really needed to repeat the course or not. Well, I did and the results thankfully came back negative for h.pylori!! I was so excited to get the news, and I told you I would let you know what happened so I hope you get this note!!! I am sincerely grateful for your help!!!*

They were skeptical… I am delighted! *

I am delighted to say the result of my HpSA test was negative. I noticed while I was taking the Matula for the month of Dec/January that I did not wake up once in the night. *

I would love to know what that ingredient was that gave me such wonderful sleep. I usually wake up around 3-3/30 AM and can’t get back to sleep for nearly 2 hours. *

Some of my friends were very skeptical and some were downright scoffing. I am really enjoying telling them the results. Drinking the tea was certainly no problem at all and so much better than the dreaded antibiotics. *

Thank you again *

Your Matula Tea really worked… *

Four months ago, I contacted you regarding how to treat my H. pylori and Barret Esophagus. I want to thank you for your advice. *

I had the Stool antigen test 2 months ago and it was negative. Now I feel a big difference in my health. I have experienced a big relief with my stomach and health. *

Your Matula tea really worked. After I finished Matula, I complimented your therapy with Rhubarb root and goldenseal taken separately for a month twice a day. I had highly resistant bacteria. I truly believe this was a wonderful way of ending the treatment to get cured. I want to share it with you and express again my appreciation for your treatment and advice. *

I wish you lots of health and fulfillment in your life. *

Luis Alvarez


Great information – thank you! *

I can’t thank you enough for all the information you have sent my way. It’s better than any office visit I ever had with a doctor. Your reports are easy to read and are extremely informative and helpful. The best part is that I can go back and read them again*

I chose your program, because I believe in natural healing, rather than using medication, which I feel does nothing but mask the problem. *

Along with healing gastric erosion/ulcers, I am also treating candida overgrowth, which I need to heal as well since most of my trouble started after being on antibiotics earlier this year. Thank You! *

You saved my husband’s health, and indeed his life… *

In 2006, after suffering what he thought was heartburn and acid reflux for months and months, my husband Neil developed an extremely foul odor that seemed to come from deep inside his throat. What was most concerning to us was that it smelled like old or rotted blood. We were worried! We saw a Gastroenterologist who immediately ordered an endoscopy.*

We were told there was no cure….*

After the procedure, the doctor approached me with a very concerned look on his face. He showed me photographs of my husband’s esophagus – black spots and ulcers covered a large part of his esophagus. My heart was in my throat when the doctor said that my husband had Barret’s Disease, a pre-cancerous condition of the esophagus. He told us that there was no cure, but that Neil could treat the symptoms with medication and a modification of his diet; he went on to say that hopefully, that would keep cancer at bay, along with the array of symptoms he was suffering.*

…there suddenly appeared a glimmer of hope…*

We filled the expensive prescription and my husband made peace with the idea of taking it for the rest of his life. I was not satisfied with that and decided to do a little research on what causes ulcers. I learned about the H-pylori virus and how it does not respond to antibiotic treatment. I was beginning to lose hope when there suddenly appeared a glimmer of hope … a tea found only in Africa. *

….it seemed too good to be true….*

Wild and extraordinary claims were made about this tea and its miraculous results. At first, it seemed too good to be true. Drink this stuff called Matula tea two times a day and you kill the virus responsible for many of the problems Neil had, so, with nothing to lose and everything to gain, we decided to give it a try.*

…he decided not to take the medication he had been prescribed…*

For one month Neil drank the tea religiously and ate a reasonable diet. It should be noted that during this “experiment” he decided not to take the medication he had been prescribed – the Matula tea we ordered would be his only course of care*

The condition of Neil’s esophagus was so serious that at the time of his first endoscopy, the doctor ordered a follow-up endoscopy to determine whether Neil’s condition was getting worse and would require any kind of surgical intervention. We strategically scheduled the follow-up endoscopy so that it would take place within days of Neil’s completion of his “30-day Matula Tea Treatment.”*

It had been just weeks since his first procedure revealed a black esophagus with ulcers eating away at it…*

Approximately six weeks later, and with a pronounced sense of worry, and a doom and gloom prognosis possibly hanging in the balance. Neil was sedated and taken in for his second endoscopy. It had been just weeks since his first procedure revealed a black esophagus with ulcers eating away at it. I waited nervously, but this time I waited with a sense of hope and curiosity.*

Now…there was nothing to find!*

Within an hour, I was ushered back to see my groggy husband, soon after that, the doctor appeared. Dr. S. had a puzzled look on his face and was clearly a little bewildered and befuddled as he announced that when they went in to explore my husband’s throat and check on the status of the bleeding and ulcers – there was nothing to find! *

…esophagus as clean and new as the day he was born…*

He went on to say that, not only was there no sign of black spots, ulcers, or bleedings, but that Neil’s esophagus was as pink and healthy as a newborn baby’s. Yes, believe it or not, it was as clean and new as the day he was born! I gushed with pride, relief, and amazement. It was a miracle, and lucky for us, we had the photographs to prove it. We told the doctor about Matula Tea and since then, we tell everyone we know who complains about acid reflux, ulcers, or worse yet, Barret’s disease, that they need to give this tea a try and see what it will do for them.

…you saved my husband’s health, and indeed his life..*

As for us, we are eternally grateful and want to send a deeply felt thank you to the good people who manufacture Matula Tea – you saved my husband’s health, and indeed his life. We now do a Matula Tea cleanse once a year as maintenance, in order to kill off any of the virus that finds its way into our system through the food we eat and the polluted water we all drink.*

We’re enjoying good health and wonderful life, and we owe much of that to Matula Tea, so thank you again! *

H. pylori was gone… in only one month! *

I am honored and excited to write to you today to inform you that your Matula Tea has, indeed, cured me of my H. pylori … in only one month! * It has allowed me to not have to utilize any conventional antibiotics which, as we both know, can be grossly detrimental to patients, like myself, that have a Candidiasis history. *

I must thank you most generously and deeply for your absolute dedication to the formulation of Matula Tea, and the sincere, keen, and professional support you have afforded me through the administering of the treatment. Your deep sincerity is becoming too rare these days. Please take this as a heartfelt accolade to you. *
