Do you recommend Gaviscon to fight stomach acid flares?

Published: January 2, 2013

Dr. T, what is your opinion about using Gaviscon to fight temp. acid flares while taking DGL licorice, mastic gum, and a heartburn supplement as suggested by you (I’m also using plant-based digestive enzymes as well).

Thank you for your response and time.


All the above are OK to use together, and Gaviscon is one of the better "antacid" products.

Love and Blessings,

Dr. T
