One of the most common causes of painful inflammation of the stomach lining with nausea and abdominal discomfort is a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori. The bacteria colonize the stomach lining and release the enzyme Urease. The stomach tries to counteract by increasing the production of gastric acid, disturbing the fragile PH equilibrium. Chronic inflammation in the stomach (gastritis) or ulcers may have further consequences. Helicobacter pylori bacteria can contribute to the development of diseases such as ulcers in the stomach and lymphoma progress (a type of cancer).

Adults suffering from painful inflammation of the stomach, acid reflux/heartburn, halitosis, nausea/vomiting.
