Question mastica gum

I had another blood test for hploria and still says it is not there. But still having alot of trouble with upper abdomen gas and feels like I can not empty. Can it still be there and not found-is there other tests. I read it can be in the tissues. WOuld mastic gum hurt you if you don't have hploria? I have had hplloria before 2 times in the past and this feels like the symtoms.

Spirit,

I have also recently been tested for H.pylori bacteria infection by a blood test and a breath test. Both showed up negative. In the past when I have had gastritis I have taken Mastica ---2 -500 mgm capsules twice daily for 2 weeks and the pain and inflamation went away. My Doctor verified with a scope testing last year that the stomach inflammation was not seen.

So, Mastica must do more than eliminate H.pylori infections. I really think there are other bacteria that live in the Stomach areas that have not been discovered YET but cause inflammation.

I have had pain that I use to think was caused by an infected diverticula but now I don't have that part of the colon anymore but NOW an antibiotic or Mastica both cure the pain problem that I still get??? They both work for awhile but not completely---- 4 to 6 months or so???

Gas pain as far as I know is not caused by H.pylori infections or the bacteria being there.

God Bless---Harry

Question

Than I don't understand why my bowel movements don;t come down-doctors are no help. I get alot of upper abdomen bloating and gas. Fiber causes more distress and am taking acidolifulus and enzymes
