All about Esophageal Ulcers
What are they and what causes them?
Esophageal ulcers occur in the lower end of your esophagus. These ulcers are often associated with a bad case of acid reflux, or GERD as it is commonly called.
Esophageal Ulcers are defined as open sores or lesions in the lining of the esophagus (the tube that carries food from your throat to your stomach). These ulcers usually cause pain that is felt behind or just below your breastbone, similar to the area where you would feel heartburn symptoms.
Healing is slow and these ulcers can recur quite often. Chronic and severe recurrences can result in a narrowing of your esophagus after healing.
It is important to note that curing acid reflux early is the key to preventing major problems and possible complications later.
What is the main cause?
Ulcers in the esophagus are usually associated with chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (more commonly known as acid reflux or GERD.
Your esophagus does not have the same mucous lining that your stomach has to protect itself against your stomach acid. When excessive stomach acid refluxes from your stomach up into your esophagus, it can corrode the lining of your esophagus over a relatively short period of time. This eventually leads to inflammation of the esophagus (known as esophagitis), and then later to ulceration.
Other common causes are:
- Prolonged use of NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory medications)
- Acid Reflux
- Acid effects of forced vomiting in Bulimia cases
Your doctor can diagnose esophageal ulcers with a barium x-ray or endoscopy. Click here to find out more about these procedures.
Possible complications with Esophageal Ulcers
Complications of ulcers include bleeding and perforation. Ulcers and their resulting inflammation can erode into the esophageal blood vessels and give rise to bleeding into the esophagus. Bleeding ulcers are dangerous and should be treated immediately.
Prolonged or severe acid reflux (severe heartburn) causes changes in the cells that line the esophagus. These cells then become pre-cancerous, and finally cancerous.
Esophageal cancer is currently the fastest growing cancer in the western world. This type of cancer may result from a condition known as Barrett’s Esophagus, which can stem from chronic Acid reflux (GERD).
Esophageal narrowing and Barrett’s Esophagus (an abnormal lining of the bottom part of the esophagus) are long-term complications from esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus). Barrett’s esophagus is also known as Barrett’s Syndrome, and is a marker for severe reflux and maybe a sign of the onset of esophageal cancer.
In 1998 surveys showed that esophageal cancer was one of the 10 leading cancers causing death among men in the USA.
People who have Barrett’s esophagus are at increased risk, as are people who have chronic acid reflux problems.
Treating the symptoms…?
Esophageal ulcers are very sensitive to small amounts of acid, much more so than gastric and duodenal ulcers. Doctors regularly prescribe proton-pump inhibitors to suppress your stomach acid. The logic of acid reduction is good for esophageal ulcer healing, but the real results can be far from good.
Treating the symptoms only is not going to lead to the result you are looking for. So we recommend that these ulcer medications should be avoided at all costs as they can do more harm than good. Treatment should rather be directed at the underlying cause – 90% of cases will show that infection of H. pylori in the stomach is to blame.
Most of the remaining cause is the result of prolonged use of NSAIDs. Stopping smoking is also a good idea!
Esophageal narrowing is usually treated with drug therapy and by a process of repeated dilation to widen parts of your esophagus. The dilation is performed by using balloons or progressively larger dilators called bougies (cone-shaped tubes).
Finding a treatment that will work best for you…
No matter what type of stomach ulcer you have, it will require some form of treatment, and obviously, you hope and trust that your treatment is going to work for you. Unfortunately, you will need to do some research to ensure this happens.
If you don’t want to take a chance on accepting any treatment that has any chance of failure, then we strongly urge you to keep reading…. because we want you to have the real facts so you can make an educated decision about choosing a treatment that will work for you.
Everyone agrees that it makes sense to treat the cause, rather than to treat the symptoms. Taking a treatment that only targets the symptoms could mean you having to endure weeks, or possibly months, of ongoing medication and health problems – plus trying to cope with some harsh side effects – and all the while, not removing the root cause of the problem.
REMEMBER! The main cause of all types of stomach ulcers is H. pylori infection – so this is the primary target in the treatment of ulcers!
NO H. pylori means NO Stomach Ulcers!
7 Vital Questions that you must ask about any treatment…
Applying this simple series of questions to any treatment will make it really easy for you to get the safest and most effective treatment that you know will work best for you. What could be better than taking a treatment with peace of mind, and not having to worry about side effects and the waste of your money if it does not work?

Early in 2006, Matula Tea underwent independent tests by world-renowned Immunologist, Professor Patrick JD Bouic Ph.D. of Synexa Life Sciences (Pty) Ltd. We had a good idea of its effect on several stomach ailments, but the results against H. pylori were the most gratifying of all.
We are so proud of these results that we decided to publish them right here, just to show the world we have nothing to hide, and also to give you the confidence that you won’t find elsewhere else! Matula Tea is the one and only natural remedy that provides this level of efficacy and is possibly the ONLY remedy that is backed by unlimited care and support, plus a Money-Back Guarantee should H. pylori be found after a course of treatment.
Our OVER 98% SUCCESS RATE explained….
Matula Tea™ is proven to be 100% effective in clearing H. pylori infections – in over 98% of people who use it. This means that over 98% of people who used Matula Tea™ were clear of their H. pylori infection after just one 30 day course of treatment.*
What makes Matula Tea so different?
Matula Tea tackles the problem of stomach ulcers from all angles without any negative effects*. This is mainly due to its proven potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, AND anti-parasitic properties.
Matula Tea, taken twice a day, will successfully treat H. pylori with just one 30-day course of treatment.*
Matula Tea also treats the symptoms of Candida overgrowth. Candida is often associated with H. pylori and is found in around 65% of people suffering from H. pylori.
Matula Tea will reduce inflammation of the stomach or bowel lining, and has been reported to heal some ulcers within two weeks. In addition, Matula Tea relieves symptoms of nausea, cramping, bloating and indigestion – these being the most common symptoms of stomach ulcers.
REMEMBER! No H. pylori means No Ulcers
That’s right! If you want to avoid stomach ulcers or to be free from stomach ulcers, then you need to be free from H. pylori. That’s because 80% – 90% of stomach ulcers are caused by the presence of H. pylori bacteria. This is where Matula Tea goes to work.

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 *
Rebecca ANY, USA
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. *
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 a 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 and 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! *
Neil & Leea WinterDunedin, FL USA
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. *
Dorian GStrategic Business Consultant
Very pleased with the good news…*

I was very pleased with the good news So I would like to say a very big thank you to you and your “Matula Tea”, It’s a” Miracle Tea”.and would highly recommend it.
