Stomach Cancer is closely linked to H. pylori infections
H. pylori infection rates in cancer cases
H. pylori infections are found to present in 50% of new gastric cancer cases. Stomach cancer is twice as common in men as it is in women, and most people who develop this type of cancer are over the age of 50 years. Cancer of the stomach is very rare in people under 40 years of age. The latest tests show that 1 in every 7 people are at risk of getting stomach cancer.
H. pylori was the first bacteria to be formally recognized as a carcinogen and is the underlying root cause of many gastrointestinal disorders.
Interestingly enough, both the causes and the symptoms of stomach cancer (or gastric cancer) are almost identical to those of peptic ulcers.
Causes & Symptoms
It is important to note that the chances are far greater that you will have a peptic ulcer if you are showing any of these symptoms, so do not be too alarmed!
Of course, if your ulcers are already at an advanced stage, then you will need further medical advice to see if you are at risk.
Only a doctor will be able to give you a proper diagnosis. The diagnosis methods for stomach cancer are very similar to the methods used for diagnosing peptic ulcers.
What are the Main Causes of Stomach Cancer?
Stomach cancer can be caused by a number of factors that damage the DNA in your stomach cells. When the DNA is damaged, healthy cells can grow out of control and form a tumor (a mass of malignant cells). These factors include:
1. H. pylori infection – 75% of the world’s population is infected with a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) that lives deep in the mucous layer which coats the lining of your stomach. It is the primary cause of stomach ulcers, accounting for at least 80 percent of all cases. And the World Health Organization has indicated that close to 50% of the annual new cases of stomach cancer can also be attributed to H. pylori infection.
2. Nitrates and nitrites – these chemicals are added to certain foods, such as processed or cured meats such as ham and bacon, sausages and other cold meats you normally find down at the deli. Nitrates and nitrites combine with other substances in your stomach to form carcinogens, which are known to cause stomach cancer.
3. Salted, smoked, or pickled foods and red meat – in countries where consumption of salted meat and fish and pickled vegetables is high, the corresponding rates of stomach cancer are also high. Consuming high levels of red meat, especially when the meat is barbecued or well done, has also been linked to stomach cancer.
4. Tobacco and alcohol use – Both can irritate the stomach lining and are especially likely to cause cancer in the upper stomach area.
5. Low-income groups – children and adults from low-income groups are more likely to develop stomach cancer than are those in higher-income groups. This is largely due to poor sanitation and unhygienic living conditions where H. pylori can spread quite quickly.
Tests show 1 in every 7 people has a high risk of stomach cancer – approximately 5.1 billion people are infected across the world with the H. pylori bacterium. Having stomach ulcers caused by an infection of Helicobacter pylori puts you at higher risk of stomach cancer!
Types of Stomach Cancer
Most stomach cancers start in the glandular cells in the mucous layer which coats the lining of your stomach and are called adenocarcinomas. There are 2 types of adenocarcinomas;
Type 1 occurs in the lower stomach, close to your small intestine known as the duodenum. Type 1 is usually a result of a chronic infection with H. pylori bacterium, or a bad diet, or a combination of both.
Type 2 occurs throughout your stomach and is more than likely a result of genetic factors. Type 2 is aggressive and is more likely to spread than type 1. Type 2 can spread through the stomach wall to your lymph nodes, and will eventually spread to your pancreas, liver and colon.
Although most stomach cancers are adenocarcinomas, there are other forms of the disease, including:
Lymphomas – these are usually caused by an infection of H. pylori and can be cured if detected early enough.
Carcinoid tumors – these account for a very small percentage of stomach cancers. Carcinoid tumors start in the hormone-producing cells in your stomach – they grow very slowly and do not spread to other parts of the body as frequently as the more common stomach cancers do.
GISTs (or gastrointestinal stromal tumors) – also account for a very small percentage of stomach cancers. They can be found anywhere in the digestive tract, but most are found in the stomach. GISTs are not the same as other types of gastric cancers. They originate from different cells and require different treatments. GISTs can be fatal in a short time because they tend to spread through your body very quickly.
Treatment of Stomach Cancer
The primary goal of any effective treatment is to remove cancer. Choosing a treatment plan is a major decision, and it’s important to spend some time researching all the options to make sure the treatment you select is right for you. It is always worthwhile getting a second opinion if you are unsure.
Treatment options include the following:
Surgery – this is the most common treatment for stomach cancer. It may involve removing part or all of your stomach and possibly some of the surrounding tissues and lymph nodes as well. After a part of your stomach has been removed, the remaining part of your stomach is connected to your esophagus and your small intestine. If your whole stomach is removed, your esophagus will be attached directly to your small intestine.
Chemotherapy – drugs used to help kill cancer cells are taken orally or intravenously. Sometimes it may be the only treatment needed, but most often doctors use chemotherapy in conjunction with other therapies, like radiation. The problem is that these drugs affect both healthy cells and cancerous cells. The result is a range of very unpleasant side effects such as nausea and vomiting, fatigue, and because of a shortage of white blood cells there is an increased risk of infection.
Radiation therapy – high-energy X-rays can be aimed to at cancer cells in this treatment. The upside of this is that the radiation affects only those parts of your body which the radiation beam passes through. Even though doctors take care to aim the beam in a way that least affects you, it is important to note that any tissue, even healthy tissue which is touched by radiation, can be damaged. Side effects may include a burn on your skin from the radiation, as well as nausea, vomiting, and fatigue.
Clinical trials – if you are at an advanced stage, you may be offered participation in a clinical trial. Beware! You may be used as a guinea-pig to test new new drugs, surgery or radiation. You must remember that the treatments used in clinical trials are experimental and have no recorded success rates. You could experience unexpected side effects, and there will be no guarantees offered.
Is there an effective solution to H. Pylori – one of the main Causes of Stomach Cancer?
There definitely is, but you need to be very careful when looking for a treatment or remedy that is going to work for you. As you may have found out already, the most common treatments are not as effective as you are led to believe.
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. *
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! *
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. *
