Mastic Gum -- I've heard of it and that it works.
I looked it up on the internet and I can only find Mastic Gum Capsules?
I thought you chewed it like gum? Am I wrong?

As for DGL -- I have been taking this as I wean myself off of Protonix.
I have read a lot of success stories about it.
I wanted to let you know that the DGL supplement I take has a chocolate flavoring.

I don't think it actually contains chocolate which is bad for GERD.
I could not take the naturally flavored DGL (I would gag on it).
The chocolate version tastes yummy!

Good luck Emkaye,
I hope you can successfully and comfortably wean yourself off PPI's. Just keep in mind that reflux can cause lots of problems in your esophagus, so you'll want to keep an eye on any symptoms you do have. If your LES is weak, you can reflux more than you realize.
I hope the mastic gum solves your problem!
