MATULA TEA — DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY! From what I can tell, the tea is simply a diuretic one akin to Fennel tea or Nettle. It made me sick. Further, I have tried to email and contact the Matula Tea dealers/makers through “Super Natural Herbs” (http://www.super-natural-herbs.com) and Ulcer Cure (http://www.ulcer-cure.com/) — a complete waste of time: NO REPLY now that they have my money. Nice. Avoid Matula tea and buy yourself some Fennel tea if you’re constipated, get some Aloe Juice if have gastritis, and stick diligently to the Manuka Honey and Mastic Gum if you have H Pylori!
By the way, I cured my H Pylori without antibiotics and note how on my blog:
My saga with H Pylori is a miserable one with a happy outcome after more than a year, and as research continues to show, the antibiotics are losing their effectiveness against the bacteria.
I used "alternative" meds, based on the crazy notion that food can heal.
The main three main "drugs" that finally eradicated the H Pylori were 1200 mg. of Monolaurin twice a day (derived from coconut milk), Manuka Honey (activated and only from New Zealand), and Mastic Gum (derived from the Greek Mastic tree). I did add in several other healing agents consistently like L Glutamine (a powder I put on my oatmeal, which helps heal gut tissue, thanks to the bacterial damage this potent bug can do), Aloe Juice (from the aloe plant), among other items I don't feel like typing in here. If you're interested in my saga with H Pylori that almost caused me to have a defibrillator in my chest (extreme, yes, but they decided the now-gone heart issues were not related to the infection) or if you want to read about this "crazy" alternatives that have restored my life and caused me to test negative for H Pylori, check out my blog entry here:
It took me a long time to research and restore my health. I hope this information helps.
One more thing: diet is key in helping you to improve as your body fights the bacteria. You should absolutely eliminate white flour products like carbohydrates (white pastas, white rice, bread, etc). These are sugars! Sugars only feed bacteria and provide no nutritional value. Also, cut out sugars! You should even limit fruits for the time being. Your goal is two fold: don't feed the bacteria and give the gut easy-to-digest alkalizing foods. Avoid foods like tomatoes and dairy products too. You can catch up on calcium later. Milk is acidic in the gut.
My diet over the past two months was pretty much chicken soup (simple molecules), cooked veggies, brown rice, avocados (for good fat content), and olives and capers. It was very difficult as I love my coffee and my glasses of wine, chocolate, pasta, pizza, etc. But it worked. And I've actually come out eating better now, even though I've returned some of my cookies and other desserts.
where did you buy the Matula tea from? how much did you pay shipping? can i get a discount for this ? I am in a lot of pain from h pylori, which didnt die after a 14 day triple therapy ( clarith + amoxicillin). my financial situation is prohibitive :(
I used Matula Herbal tea as well and I am happy to report that it worked exactly as promised. I already reported that in this forum some time ago, and I am even happier that I am still free from h pylori. I have read many other good reports and hate seeing a good thing slated. I read that Matula was 98% effective and even saw the clinical tests that prove this - that was sufficient for me to give it a try. Glad I did!
I also had the antibiotic resistant helicobacter curse; but I am now free from it, thanks to a more insightful gastro specialist who treated me with a combination of antibiotics and BISMUTH - only available from a compound chemist.
Nasty stuff which caused severe nausea for the entire two weeks of treatment, but it was worth it.
What works on some people doesn't necessarily work on others; so don't judge the medical profession OR the natural remedies advocates on a survey on one.
Some times we need a combination of both.
