9 Types of Ulcers in the GI tract explained

Most people only know of 3 types of stomach ulcers…

Most people only know about two types of ulcers before they get diagnosed with a more specific type of ulcer. Generally, people refer only to 3 types of stomach ulcers – these being peptic, gastric and duodenal ulcers. We explain what the difference is between these, and we also explain more about some of the lesser-known stomach ulcers.

The term ‘stomach ulcer’ is a pretty broad term that includes quite a few different types of ulcers. It gets a little confusing when you start looking deeper into all 7 different types of ulcers found in the digestive system.

‘Peptic Ulcers’ include these 3 types of ulcers

Mostly, ulcers are named after the location where they are found but, as with most things in life, there is an exception – the peptic ulcer. For instance, a peptic ulcer can be found anywhere in your esophagus, stomach, or duodenum.

So, therefore a peptic ulcer can also be an esophageal, or gastric, or duodenal ulcer….confused? Let’s try and simplify this for you!

Most Common Types of Ulcers

Peptic Ulcer
Any ulcer that is exposed to pepsin is referred to as a peptic ulcer. Peptic ulcers are found in the lining of your stomach or duodenum. Pepsin is normally present along with hydrochloric acid in the stomach lining. There are many symptoms of peptic ulcers that are worth checking out. The primary cause of peptic ulcers is infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).

Gastric Ulcer
When a peptic ulcer is in your stomach, it is called a gastric ulcer. The symptoms of gastric ulcers are more specific than peptic ulcer symptoms. They are often caused by the same factors as peptic ulcers, including H. pylori infection (in most cases) and the use of NSAIDs.

Duodenal Ulcer
When a peptic ulcer is in your duodenum, it is called a duodenal ulcer. This type of peptic ulcer develops in the first part of the small intestine. Some of the symptoms of a duodenal ulcer are interestingly quite opposite to those of gastric ulcers. Duodenal ulcers are the most common ulcers found in the Western world. Like gastric ulcers, they are commonly caused by H. pylori infection and to a lesser degree by the use of NSAIDs. Other minor factors include smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and a family history of peptic ulcers.

Recurrent Ulcers
These can include any type of ulcer that reappear after a treatment targeting H. pylori, and when that treatment has not got the h. pylori below infection level. This is quite common and highlights the importance of using effective treatments.

NSAID-Induced Ulcers
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are a common cause of peptic ulcers, particularly in individuals who take these medications regularly for conditions such as arthritis or chronic pain. NSAIDs are known to inhibit the production of prostaglandins which help protect the stomach lining. Long-term use of NSAIDs can therefore increase the risk of developing ulcers by disrupting the stomach’s natural defense mechanisms.

Lesser-Known types of Ulcers

Esophageal Ulcer
Esophageal ulcers, though relatively less common can pose significant challenges due to their potential to cause discomfort and complications. This type of ulcer occurs in the lower end of the esophagus. Esophageal ulcers are often associated with a bad case of acid reflux, or GERD as it is commonly called (short for Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease), and can also be caused by H. pylori infection and the use of NSAIDs.

Bleeding Ulcer
Internal bleeding is caused by a peptic ulcer that has been left untreated – this is the most dangerous type of ulcer. See your doctor immediately if you are showing symptoms. Bleeding ulcers occur when the ulcer erodes through a blood vessel, causing bleeding. The primary causes of bleeding ulcers are similar to those of other types of peptic ulcers, including H. pylori infection, NSAID use, and excessive alcohol consumption. Chronic liver disease, such as cirrhosis, may also increase the risk of bleeding ulcers due to impaired blood clotting.

Refractory Ulcer
Refractory ulcers are simply peptic ulcers that have not healed after at least 3 months of conventional treatment. The causes of refractory ulcers may include persistent H. pylori infection that is resistant to antibiotics, ongoing NSAID use despite treatment, and other underlying health conditions such as Crohn’s disease or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Stress or Cushing Ulcer
Stress or cushing ulcers are normally only found in critically ill or severely stressed patients. Cushing ulcers are a type of stress ulcer that specifically occurs in patients with severe head injuries or brain trauma. They are caused by overstimulation of the vagus nerve, leading to excessive gastric acid secretion. Additionally, increased intracranial pressure and reduced blood flow to the stomach lining contribute to the development of Cushing ulcers.

What is the BEST treatment for your type of stomach ulcer?

If you have any of the above types of ulcers, then obviously the best treatment is one that you can rely on to remove all traces of H. pylori. Yes, a treatment you can actually rely on does exist – but, you are not going to get this from your doctor. The reason for this is simple – almost all doctors only focus on, or can only provide drug therapies. We, on the other hand, provide a safer and more effective solution that is not only clinically proven – it is also guaranteed to work!

REMEMBER! The main cause of all types of stomach ulcers is an H. pylori infection – so this is the primary target in the treatment of ulcers.
NO H. pylori means NO Stomach 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. *

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. *

Yours Gratefully And once again a big THANK YOU*
