Helicobacter Pylori

Helicobacter Pylori

Matula Tea removes ALL traces of H.Pylori bacteria from your digestive system.

Information disclaimer

The results of a Matula Herbal Tea treatment can vary from person to person, due to various differences in the severity of the Helicobacter Pylori infection and the general health and wellbeing of each person. To read the full disclaimer please click here.

Helicobacter pylori is a hardy spiral shaped bacterium which multiplies and colonizes in your digestive system.

 Given the makeup of this incredibly destructive bacteria, you will see how it’s clever design enables it to survive in hydrochloric acid (the acid your stomach produces to break down food), and then to penetrate the lining of your stomach.

 Helicobacter Pylori is able to survive gastric acids due to its ability to produce an enzyme called urease. Urease can neutralize stomach acid, making it easy for the bacteria to survive in its own acid free zone.

 Because of their corkscrew shape, the bacteria can easily penetrate the stomach’s protective mucous lining. The ‘antacid’ effect of H. Pylori fools your stomach into producing more acid, which then makes your stomach lining more susceptible to damage through exposure to acid and pepsin. Too much acid and pepsin is even more damaging when the stomach lining has been penetrated and left unprotected by the effects of H. pylori colonization.


This is basically how stomach ulcers are formed.

 Helicobacter Pylori is the ONLY bacterial organism which can survive in the hydrochloric acid produced by your stomach.

In 1982, two Australian scientists, Dr Barry Marshall and Dr Robin Warren discovered that stomach ulcers were actually caused by H. Pylori.

 The New York Times published an article in 1984 by its medical correspondent Dr. Lawrence K. Altman on the link between H. Pylori and Peptic Ulcer disease. He stated in 2002, “I’ve never seen the medical community more defensive or more critical of a story”, and he had been with the paper since 1969.

 It took a total of 23 years for Dr Barry Marshall and Dr Robin Warren to convince the medical profession to acknowledge and embrace their breakthrough discovery, and they were eventually awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2005 for their work on H. Pylori.

 The story of Dr Barry Marshall and Dr Robin Warren started nearly 23 years before they won the Nobel Prize. After years of intensive research, their discovery which established the link between an infection of H. Pylori bacterium and stomach ulcers, was finally made way back in 1982.

 Supporting evidence of the link between the H. Pylori bacterium and stomach ulcers quickly strengthened over the next 10 years. Many studies from around the world also confirmed without any doubt that there was a presence of the H. Pylori bacterium in most people suffering from peptic ulcers.

 The concept of stress and diet being the cause of peptic ulcers was so firmly entrenched in the medical professions mind set at the time, that they could not bring themselves to believe that a bacterium could possibly be the cause.

 This newly discovered fact completely rocked common medical beliefs in those days. Nobody believed that H. Pylori could survive in the acidic environment of the stomach, because the stomach was supposed to be kept sterile by the natural presence of aggressive gastric juices (hydrochloric acid).

 To disprove the belief that H. Pylori could not survive in the acidic environment of the stomach, Dr Barry Marshall performed an experiment on himself in July 1984 that for ethical reasons he could not ask any healthy person to do.

 He was first checked for bacterial infection and tested negative. He then swallowed a 3 day culture of H. Pylori. As he expected, seven days later he started feeling sick with headaches, nausea, episodes of vomiting and really bad breath.

 Although he didn’t develop an ulcer, he did suffer from gastritis (stomach inflammation). After ten days, tests showed that the H. Pylori bacterium had established itself in Dr Marshall’s stomach. After 2 weeks, Dr Marshall began taking an antibiotic and he was back to normal within twenty-four hours.

 His bold experiment was a success as he had proved that a healthy person could easily be infected by H. Pylori.

 By the 1990’s discussions had shifted from the question of whether H. Pylori causes peptic ulcers, to questions on how it causes ulcers and how it can be eradicated.

 Thus, the theory of the unbelievers had been broken – they had argued that people with ulcers had weak immune systems, and that H. Pylori was only effectively infecting people with ulcers because of their weakened immune systems.

 Today there is absolutely no doubt that H. Pylori is the cause of 80% – 90% of all stomach ulcers. There is still a lot of discussion on whether it can be the sole cause or if it needs a sidekick, like stress or spicy foods.

 The bottom line regarding the correlation between of H. Pylori and ulcers is most clearly shown in the recurrence rates after treatment. The ulcer recurrence rate at 1 year is about 10% if H. Pylori is eradicated. And 50% – 60% if it is not eradicated.

It’s important to insist on a blood test if you have never been treated for H. Pylori before, or an H. Pylori Stool Antigen (HPSA) test if you have already been treated.

  1. Heartburn or Acid Reflux (GERD)

Whether these symptoms occur on a regular, or even infrequent basis, you may well be infected with H. Pylori.

  1. Diarrhoea, Constipation, Flatulence, Bloating

 Because H. Pylori interferes with acid in your stomach, you can’t digest food properly.

  1. Pylori creates a non-stop stress on your body, making you feel tired. Added to the possibility that you are not digesting your food properly, your body is not getting the correct nourishment to maintain its proper energy levels.
  1. Nausea & Vomiting

 Many people feel nauseous when with H. Pylori infections. Sometimes this can be mistaken for pregnancy morning sickness in women. In some cases, vomiting does occur.

  1. Unplanned Weight and Muscle Loss.

 Because H. Pylori affects acid levels – which affects the digestive process of fats and proteins especially – you may notice that you are losing weight. The problem is that this weight loss is due to muscle loss, which is a dangerous way to lose weight.

  1. Difficulty Losing Weight

 This is a surprising symptom opposite to the above. The reason for this is that a hormone called cortisol is produced when your body is stressed. Cortisol is known to cause either weight loss or weight gain, depending on the person. Cortisol can promote weight gain around the stomach area, and at the same time can also cause muscle loss.

  1. Hormonal Symptoms including Mood Swings & PMS

 These are usually caused by an over production of Cortisol caused by the stresses of the body trying to deal with infections.

  1. Depression and Anxiety

 A very important mood chemical (called serotonin) is largely made in a healthy digestive system. Any damage to your stomach by an H. Pylori infection will lead to a shortage of this important chemical.

  1. Gum Disease, Bad Breath and other Oral infections

 Although the H. Pylori bacteria lives mostly in the stomach and small intestines, it has also been found in the mouth, and even in dental cavities.

  1. Blocked nose, painful sinuses, colds and infections

 Most people are unaware that the sinuses are joined to the digestive system, and that any irritation to the digestive system can cause sinus problems.

  • Correct diagnosis is critical, and CORRECT re-testing after treatment (to make sure the treatment has worked) is even more important. Yet patients are literally throwing their money away by paying for the wrong tests which are still being widely used to test for the presence of H. pylori.

    Most doctors simply have very few options when it comes to treating for H. Pylori infections. (The prescription will almost always be a Triple Therapy, or Quadruple Therapy.)

    The latest drugs being produced are designed to be even more powerful and effective against Helicobacter Pylori – – but sadly the negative side effects are not getting any better ( side effects cause most patients to abandon their treatment )

    Most Doctors spend more time treating the negative effects of Triple Therapy, than they do treating the original H. Pylori infection.

    1. Pylori is becoming increasingly resistant to the most common treatments.

    Patients who have been on 4 or more courses of Triple or Quadruple Therapy – find that they are still infected with H. Pylori.

    The antibiotics used in Triple or Quadruple Therapies are the direct cause of another major problem, one that conventional medicine chooses not to even recognize… Candida Albicans overgrowth.

    Up to 65% of patients infected with H. Pylori are simultaneously infected with Candida Albicans, and they don’t even know about it! (Candida Overgrowth can be a dangerous infection if left untreated, and it caused by the intake of antibiotics – the most common treatment prescribed for H. Pylori)

    Almost 75% of the world’s population is infected with the Helicobacter Pylori bacterium.

    Over 50% of gastric cancer patients are infected with H. Pylori.

    Up to 90% of all stomach ulcers are caused by an infection of the Helicobacter Pylori bacterium. Most people have never heard of H. Pylori.

    60% of people surveyed believe that ulcers are caused by stress, and nearly 20% believe that stomach ulcers are caused by spicy foods.

    Researchers have found H. Pylori in the saliva of some infected men , women and children and it has recently been proved that this infection can be spread by kissing. This recent discovery highlights the problem of re-infection of a patient who have been successfully treated, and also explains the problem of cross-infection amongst families who are not treated at the same time.

    What other diseases is H. Pylori bacterium linked to?

  • Recent studies show that apart from peptic ulcers, other diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even 50 % of new gastric cancer cases are linked to the presence of H. Pylori bacterium.

  • Another new discovery is that 65 – 70% of men and women infected with H. Pylori also suffer from Candida Albicans overgrowth, the most probable cause being antibiotic treatments.

Recent studies show that apart from peptic ulcers, other diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even 50 % of new gastric cancer cases are linked to the presence of H. Pylori bacterium.

Another new discovery is that 65 – 70% of people infected with H. Pylori also suffer from Candida Albican Overgrowth, the most probable cause being antibiotic treatments.

Blood antibody tests

A blood test checks for the presence of H. Pylori antibodies, not for the bacteria itself. The biggest disadvantage of this test is quite simply; “Blood Tests cannot differentiate between a past infection and the current status…”

 Even after H. Pylori bacteria have been eradicated, H. Pylori antibodies may sometimes still be present in the blood for 12 – 18 months after a successful treatment. This means that you will test positive (for antibodies) when you are actually negative after receiving treatment. In view of this, Blood Testing is considered to be the most inconclusive test that can be used to determine if a treatment has been successful or not.

 DO NOT USE an H. Pylori Blood Test AFTER you have been treated!

 This is because antibodies remain in the blood for between 12 to 18 months after the H. Pylori bacterium has been successfully eradicated. In short this means that a Blood Test is only showing what your H. pylori status was up to 18 months before the test.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE if you have NEVER been treated for H. Pylori – A Blood test CAN be useful if you suspect you are infected with H. Pylori, AND if you have never been treated for H. Pylori before. It is safe to assume that if your Blood Test is positive, and you have never been treated before, then you are extremely likely to be currently infected. Obviously this means that you will need to start seeking effective treatment.

Urea breath test

A urea breath test checks to see if you have H. Pylori bacteria in your stomach. It involves using a radioactive carbon atom to detect H. Pylori bacteria.

The breath test is not always available and the results are often inconsistent sometimes giving a false positive or a false negative . This a very expensive test, and our research has shown that this is not the best H. Pylori test to go for. The inconsistency of the breath test has been proved when running a breath test concurrently with a H. Pylori Stool Antigen test on the same patient.

Stomach biopsy test

A small sample (biopsy) is taken from the lining of your stomach and small intestine during an endoscopy. Several different tests may be done on the biopsy sample. Most of these test produce inconsistent results, and depend on the testing facility or laboratory used. This has been proved when running these tests concurrently with a benchmark HPSA test  or GI Map test on the same patient.

  1. H. Pylori Stool Antigen Test

GI Map Test

The GI Map test is a DNA based stool test . This test can detect a whole host of infections in the body which includes pathogens (bacterial, parasitic, and viral) commonly known to cause intestinal gastroenteritis  . The normal reading for H. Pylori on the GI Map test is 1.0e3 . The GI Map test shows the extent of the H. Pylori infection in detail including virulence factors . For example, If you have a GI Map test and you are H. Pylori positive , the result may be something like 1.7e3 High or 7.0e5 High or 6.0e4 High  the reading will be  in red and High next to it (decimal equivalent being 1700 , 700000 and 60000 respectfully) . If you are H. Pylori negative  and therefore normal the reading will be 1.0e3 ( not highlighted in red ) or less than for example 2.4e2 or 8.9e2 ( again not highlighted in red ) . However it is important to check the virulence factors listed below the H. Pylori reading .

Also known as the HPSA test, this test provides the most conclusive evidence of the presence of H. Pylori bacteria. The stool antigen test checks to see if substances that trigger the immune system to fight a H. Pylori infection (H. Pylori antigens) are present in your faeces (stool).

 Stool antigen testing may be done to help support a diagnosis of a current H. Pylori infection or to determine whether treatment for a H. Pylori infection has been successful. We recommend this test after you have been treated – it produces a very accurate result of your H. Pylori status. The HPSA test will give either a positive or negative result .

Different result times

– Results from the urea breath test or a stool antigen (HPSA) test are generally available within a few hours.

– Results from a blood antibody test are usually available within 24 hours.

– Results from biopsy samples obtained by endoscopy usually available within 48 hours.

– Results from a biopsy sample that is cultured can take up to 10 days.

    Results from a GI Map test can take 7-10 business days .

Unfortunately, the bacterium is not easy to eradicate. There is no single antibiotic that can do the job alone, so multiple antibiotics in conjunction with proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) such as Nexium and Prilosec, are being prescribed. 

No matter what drug based treatment that has been prescribed – fact is that there will be a group of negative effects that the patient have to contend with. Many people have such bad reactions that they are forced to stop their treatment prematurely.

One has to look at natural remedies if one  wants to avoid any negative effects. Natural products are toxin free and known to be very gentle on your body.

If you have already been trying to get rid of H. Pylori or your stomach ulcer, then chances are you are visiting our site now because a treatment has failed, and you are seeking an alternative treatment that actually works.

 If this describes where you are at right now, then you will be happy to read that it is now possible to remove all traces of H. pylori from your digestive system with a single course of a clinically proven 100% natural herbal solution – and that this can be done without any negative effects.

Helicobacter Pylori

Helicobacter Pylori

Helicobacter Pylori is one of the most common gastric bacteria infections, yet it is misdiagnosed by many doctors and healers as the symptoms can vary from person to person. Some people suffer with H.pylori for years and ignore these symptoms, if left untreated, this bacteria can cause gastric cancer and peptic ulcers, but that discussion we leave for the next article.

Let’s have a look at the most common symptoms:

1.   Heartburn or Acid Reflux (GERD)

The bacteria possess the ability to produce unusually high levels of urease, which is important for colonization. High levels of urease causes a chemical action which produces ammonia that forms a thin acid-neutralizing layer or “cloud” around the bacterium, which in turn protects the H.pylori from being destoyed by your stomach acids. Whether these symptoms occur on a regular, or even infrequent basis, you may well be infected with H.pylori.  This corkscrew looking bacteria imbeds itself into your stomach lining causing inflammation. H. pylori can live and survive in the hostile acidic environment of the stomach.

Due to the alkaline environment in your gut, your gastric system works so much harder to digest your food, thus high amounts of acid is being produced which can cause Heartburn and Acid Reflux.

2.  Diarrhea, Constipation, Flatulence, Bloating and Belching

Your stomach needs acid to digest food and the urease being excreted by H.Pylori interferes with the acid production in your stomach, which means you can’t digest food proper and may end up bloated with another host of stomach disorders in pursuit.  It is of utmost importance that you eat a healthy diet to help your body digest food with ease and to give your body the nutrients it needs support your immune system and energy levels, check out our other article on What foods to eat and what to avoid.

3.  Fatigue and Low Energy Levels

Digesting food takes a lot of stomach acids and energy, now that the H.pylori has turned your stomach into an alkaline environment, your body works extra hard to digest your food.   This energy drain causes serious fatigue and low energy levels.  Added to the possibility that you are not digesting your food properly, your body is most likely not getting the correct nourishment to maintain a healthy body.

Feeling lethargic all the time can have a huge effect on your personal life too, many people find they don’t have the energy to socialize and do physical exercises anymore.  Some relationships are under stress and strain due the physical manifestation of this debilitating effect which can leads to deeper problems in a relationship. This pain can leave you unable to function physically as it drains you physically, mentally and eventually emotionally, affecting your day to day life.

4.  Nausea & Vomiting

Considering the food is not being digested properly, many with H.pylori feel nauseous throughout the day, most feel ill after eating food.  It is important to eat small meals throughout the day to make digestion easier, heavier meals will be harder to digest.

5.  Loss of Appetite and Muscle

When you experience abdominal discomfort and feel nauseas, you may not be in the mood to eat or may feel full after a few bites.  Many H.pylori sufferers lose a lot of weight during this time.  H.pylori affects acid levels, which affects the digestive process of fats especially proteins. The problem is that this weight loss is due to muscle loss, which is a dangerous way to lose weight.

6.  Difficulty Losing Weight

This is a surprising symptom opposite to the above. The reason for this is that a hormone called cortisol is produced when your body is stressed. Cortisol is known to cause either weight loss or weight gain, depending on the person. Cortisol can promote weight gain around the stomach area, and at the same time can also cause muscle loss.

7.   Hormonal Symptoms including Depression, Anxiety, Mood Swings & PMS

These are usually caused by an over production of Cortisol caused by the stresses of the body trying to deal with infections.  A very important mood chemical (called serotonin) is largely made in a healthy digestive system. Any damage to your stomach by an H. pylori infection will lead to a shortage of this important chemical.  H.pylori affects neurotransmitters and brain neurochemistry, creating neurological symptoms that include psychotic disorders related to imbalances in serotonin and tryptamine levels. When H. pylori is present in extreme cases, a ketogenic diet may aggravate mental symptoms, and even without H. pylori infection a shift to using fat for energy may create psychosis.

8.  Gum Disease, Bad Breath and other Oral infections

Although the H pylori bacteria lives mostly in the stomach and small intestines, it has also been found in the mouth, and even in dental cavities.  A new study has linked the treatment of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) with curing the chronic bad breath (halitosis) associated with functional dyspepsia. H. pylori is a bacterium that infects the stomach, and is associated with stomach cancer and ulcer disease. You may even see a white coating on your tongue.

The stomach and intestines play a big role in teeth and sinus health. I have a history of cavities and sinus infections. Bacteria can travel from the stomach into the teeth and do damage. The bacteria can travel from the mouth into the sinuses.

9.  Abdominal Pain

Helicobacter Pylori infection can irritate your stomach, causing inflammation also known as gastritis. A common symptom a gnawing or burning pain in the abdomen just below the breastbone which may extend to the back. It can appear an hour or two after eating, it may come and go for periods of days or weeks. At night when the stomach is empty the pain might be worse.

Up to 90% of all stomach ulcers are caused by an infection of the Helicobacter pylori bacterium. Gastric carcinoma is one of the most common causes of cancer-related deaths, primarily because most patients present at an advanced stage of the disease. The main cause of this cancer is the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, which chronically infects around half of all humans. However, unlike tumor viruses, bacteria do not deposit transforming genes in their host cells and how they are able to cause cancer has so far remained a mystery.

10. Less Common Symptoms

May include tension headaches, clouded thinking, candida yeast infections, body chills, cramping, joint pain, painful lymph nodes and general body aches.

Pylori symptoms such as those mentioned above may seem quite broad and confusing, and some people can be completely overwhelmed by the number of symptoms that they are experiencing all at the same time. Hopefully, this list of symptoms has helped you work out if you could be infected with H.pylori. It is best to visit a healthcare professional and have the necessary tests done in order for you to start your healing journey.


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.  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.
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.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.
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.”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.
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!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 new born 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.As for us, we are eternally grateful and want to send our 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 a wonderful life, and we owe much of that to Matula Tea, so thank you again!*
