Thumbs up Re: mastic gum

I have used Mastica several times since 7/2001 to cure gastritis with no side effects.
It is suppose to be taken between meals -- on an empty stomach.

It seem that when I take an antibiotic for 5 days or longer-- I get gastritis and the Doctor's treatment is to take a PPI for a month or so. This method does not work for me. But, Mastica Does.

I take 2-- 500mg capsules twice daily between meals and a probiotic once daily(PB-8 is OK).

I think it would be OK to empty the caps in a glass of water and take the contence.

It takes me about 2 weeks for the burning of gastritis to clear up.

God Bless---Harry
