Is a gastric ulcer the same as a stomach ulcer?

You might be interested in the mastic gum thread in the forum here.

https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-565/mastic
"Stomach ulcers. Taking mastic powder by mouth for 2 weeks seems to reduce symptoms and improve healing in people with intestinal ulcers. Also, early research shows that taking mastic powder by mouth for 4 weeks improves these outcomes in people with stomach ulcers."

Yeah they're the same thing, thanks I was actually planning to try some mastic gum already.

Thanks for posting about Gaviscon providing you good relief.

 In India Gaviscon contains sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate.  What are the ingredients in the Gaviscon you use.  I tried it a few months back but only for 2 days. It helped my gerd but not with constant inflammation in my gut.   Hope it continues to work for you.

This is different to the regular Gaviscon this article says its ten times stronger than regular gaviscon https://www.refluxgate.com/gaviscon-advance. I have big concerns about the aluminium the advance version contains though, aluminium can lower bh4 levels and I also did wake up feeling rough from it the next day. Also aluminium is strongly linked to neurological diseases.

"Why Gaviscon Advance is Superior to Regular Gaviscon

It is important to know that Gaviscon’s formula varies from country to country.

The US version is not very useful. The formula sold in the UK is much more effective against reflux."

Here in Canada, we have a mixed situation:  Gavison tablets are aluminum-free ( alginic acid, plus magnesium carbonate in the "Max Relief" version),  but the liquid version contains aluminum, similar to Maalox. I only use the tablets, I ceased years ago to take anything containing aluminum, along with anything unsafe or downright harmful for health like artificial colors, preservatives agents, monosodium glutamate, aspartame, HFCS, and so on. 

Aluminum is not safe to ingest, in my opinion.  It is suspected as a contributing factor to some cancers, and also in
Alzheimer disease.  It has no role natural in the organic chemistry of the body, so not "supposed" to be in there.
