Re: Do you need meds to cure gastritis?
I've taken the mastic gum, but can't say for sure it helps with my symptoms. It certainly didn't make them worse, just not convinced. They made me belch a bit, and it actually felt better when I did. I'm really not sure what's wrong with my stomach so I'd say they're worth a try.
After I stopped the Mastic Gum, I did find good results with DGL Licorice capsules. I bought the sugar free variety. You chew them 20minutes before meals, saliva helps them work. They taste pretty awful, but, if you are at the point that you just want to try something to help it's tolerable. I've gotten used to them now, acquired a taste I guess.
