In case you have noticed any of the aforementioned symptoms, we highly recommend getting tested for Helicobacter Pylori. Several asymptomatic people who are infected with the Helicobacter pylori bacterium are completely unaware of its presence because they never get sick.

Most (not all) stomach ulcers are partly caused due to the infection resulting from the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Conventionally, stomach ulcers are treated by prescribing a combination of two antibiotics, plus a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) drug, which stops the process of stomach acid secretion.

However, as H. pylori’s resistance to conventional antibiotics continues to rise, treatment efficacy rates have dropped substantially and are no longer considered gold-standard, even in conventional medicine. This shift, combined with the long-term side effects (dysbacteriosis, allergy reactions, diahrea, etc.) caused by these broad-spectrum antibiotics on our gut microbiome, led us to gradually realize that the natural treatment approach to H. pylori may function as a more holistic and effective solution.

Mastika is a great natural solution for people seeking natural remedies for digestive problems.

In fact, this resource can function as an alternative treatment for patients who cannot take antibiotics for any reason. 

Mastika is a unique resin that is sourced from a Mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus) grown in the Mediterranean.

Mastic resin’s antimicrobial properties inhibit the growth of the H. pylori bacteria in the stomach. Gradually, it can also eliminate it from the system.

For hundreds of years, Mediterranean cultures have traditionally and intuitively used mastic resin to improve digestive health.

Recommended daily dose and period of use of Mastika:
Intensive mastic treatment

  • Daily dose: 1.0 gram of pure mastic resin per day.
  • Duration of use: min 3 months, depending on the nature of the complaints.

Preventive use of mastic

  • Daily dose: 500 mg of pure mastic resin.
  • Duration of use: unlimited and possibly irregular.

Follow the daily dose recommendation and use it over a long period of time for best results! Proper daily dosage and duration of use are crucial parameters.


Helicobacter pylori infection can be diagnosed through an antibody blood test, stool test or through biopsies taken during endoscopy.
Important. Please note that blood tests are only helpful in diagnosing the presence of Helicobacter pylori and does not provide information about treatment results. In other words, an antibodies test may return positive results even after the treatment of a previous Helicobacter pylori infection. Thus, although the test result shows us whether you have Helicobacter pylori, the blood test cannot determine whether a course of treatment has cleared the infection.

A stool test can help verify if infection has been cleared after treatment. Endoscopy. A very small section of the stomach lining (a biopsy) is sent to the laboratory to check whether H. pylori is present in the stomach. All tests for Helicobacter pylori, except blood tests, may be quite inaccurate in cases where people had recently taken a course of antibiotics or certain other drugs prescribed to treat ulcers.

Lifestyle changes

Here are a few ways in which you can change your lifestyle to relieve discomfort and reduce the symptoms associated with acid reflux:

  • Avoid spicy, greasy, acidic, and fatty foods
