NSAIDs – The 2nd Biggest Cause of Stomach Ulcers
With 100 million prescriptions written in the United States for NSAIDs, and a further 30 billion NSAID tablets sold over-the-counter (without prescriptions) annually, it’s easy to see why NSAIDs are the 2nd biggest cause of ulcers. And these figures highlight the number of people at risk of developing peptic ulcers due to this.
NSAIDs are currently these are the world’s most heavily, and most frequently prescribed drugs. The reason for this is that they are widely used for a number of common health conditions. For example, Aspirin is commonly used to prevent cardiovascular problems, while prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs are frequently used for the treatment of muscular pain, bone-related discomfort such as arthritis pain, and inflammation.
Some quick statistics on the wide-spread use of NSAIDs…
- 1 in every 5 Americans is treated with NSAIDs every year.
- 7 in every 10 people over the age of 65 use NSAIDs weekly.
- 3 in every 10 people use NSAIDs daily.
The average risks for gastric ulcers are nearly 4% greater after using NSAIDs for less than 2 weeks, and 7% greater after using NSAIDs for more than 4 weeks.
The average risks for duodenal ulcers are nearly 3% greater after using NSAIDs for less than 2 weeks, and 4% greater after using NSAIDs for more than 4 weeks.
NSAIDs – the Side Effects and Fatalities….
The problem with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is that people are unaware of the side effects and self-prescribe in ignorance, because these drugs are freely available without prescription in most countries. To give you an idea, 7% of men and 12% of women used prescription NSAIDs, while 20% of men and 30% of women used non-prescription NSAIDs.
The gastrointestinal consequences of long-term NSAID use are significant. A recent US study has shown that the NSAID-related gastrointestinal death rate is higher than the death rates of cervical cancer, malignant melanoma, and asthma.
In the United States, over 16,000 patients die each year due to NSAID-related gastrointestinal side-effects and a further 100,000 patients end up in hospital. That equates to nearly 50 NSAID-related deaths and 300 hospitalizations per day – this is a situation of epidemic proportion that is largely downplayed for whatever reason.
How NSAIDs Cause Ulcers
NSAIDs interfere with the stomach’s ability to protect itself from acidic digestive juices (gastric acid), and this is the primary cause of ulcers.
Normally the stomach has 3 main defenses against gastric acid;
- the mucus layer that coats the stomach lining and shields it from stomach acid
- the chemical bicarbonate that neutralizes stomach acid
- blood circulation to the stomach lining that aids in cell renewal and repair.
NSAIDs disrupt all three of these defense mechanisms. And when your stomach’s defenses are down, even normal levels of gastric acids will damage the unprotected stomach lining and cause ulcers.
The good news is that NSAID-induced ulcers usually start healing as soon as you stop taking your medication. To speed up the healing process and relieve symptoms your doctor will probably recommend taking antacids to neutralize the acid.

H2-blockers or proton-pump inhibitors can also decrease the amount of acid the stomach produces, but this is an unnatural process and you could find yourself undernourished. And of course, there are the side effects of these medications to consider as well.
If you have an NSAID ulcer and you have also tested positive for H. pylori, then it is highly recommended that this bacterium is treated. More drugs and more nasty side effects? No, not necessarily! H. pylori can be treated with the use of 100% natural remedies and because they are natural you won’t suffer from negative effects either.
If you are taking these drugs and you think you have any symptoms of a peptic ulcer, please see your doctor for a diagnosis. Delaying this can lead to complications. Surgery may be necessary if your ulcer recurs or fails to heal, or if your ulcer starts bleeding.
H. pylori, NSAIDs and Stomach Ulcers
Both H. pylori and NSAIDs cause ulcers, and there appears to be a relationship between the two. You can see from the following that treating H. pylori in people who are taking NSAIDs is a good thing.
In a recent test, 300 patients who needed NSAID treatment were tested for H. pylori. 165 patients tested positive.
Of these 165 patients, 80 were treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without treating H. pylori. Another 85 were treated for H. pylori with antibiotics (only 58% effective) before starting NSAID treatment.
Before treatment was started, none of the patients had any trace of stomach ulcers. After eight weeks, endoscopy was performed and it was found that 26 of the 85 patients (or 30%) who had not had successful H. pylori treatment, had an ulcer. Of the 49 patients with successful treatment of H. pylori, only 1 patient (or 2%) had an ulcer.
The results show that successful treatment of H. pylori should be recommended for those at the highest risk (this is age-related – older people are at higher risk) and also for anyone who has been being prescribed long-term NSAID treatment.
Need to treat your ulcers or H. pylori – and you have to take NSAIDs?
Thankfully it is now possible to safely treat an H. pylori infection, while you continue to take your existing medication.
After years of research, a tried and tested natural solution has emerged into the global market, and this one has already been used by thousands of customers who have to take NSAIDs at the same time as trying to deal with stomach ulcers and/or h. pylori infections.
This is a complete breakthrough in the treatment of H. pylori bacteria (the main cause of ulcers), and the main reason for this is that is completely non-toxic and safe to take with any other medications.
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 some 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. *
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. *
