Mastica(mastic gum) for stomach burning
May 4, 2011
My son has tried the mastica for about a week and feels that it has helped with some of the burning in his stomach.
He has experienced poor digestion, with bloating, burning, etc., for over a year, and has tried many remedies but feels that the mastica is working pretty well, maybe better than other things he has tried. He has been taking 2 capsules between meals, twice a day for about a week and the symptoms have improved. He has also been taking DGL tablets before meals since before he started the mastica and is now taking both to try to heal the sensitive stomach. He still needs help with digestion, and will address that again after he takes the mastica for awhile.
A knowledgable health food store owner who studies naturopathic medicine, suggested the mastica.
