My format is IBS and I traveled a bit to the Gerd/Heartburn format and told them about the mastic gum that I have been using for years that has been studied that might help Crohns
Moderator will not allow me to put the link in to show the study, as this is also not my website
So please do a search on mastic gum crohns and you can see the study by Ray Sahelian MD

Thanks for sharing this IBS Knowledge, I have both crohn's and IBS and have not heard of this but with the link you provided showing some studies have been done, I'll certainly be checking for it next time I'm at my local health food store.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

Yes, it sounds good, but I have not had occasion to try it yet.
