I was just diagnosed with having a Duodenal ulcer last week. The doctor prescribed medication which I did not want to take because of prior experience with the medication that did not go well. I did some research and found out that DGL helps to prevent the flare up of the ulcer as well as helping to heal it. I purchased a bottle and started taking it immediately and right away I've had nothing but positive results. I can actually sleep through the night now without the severe stomach pain that used to wake me up two or three times during the night. I still get some stomach pains here and there but nothing compared to what I've experienced in the past. I feel very positive about the DGL and I'm convinced that it will help to heal me. I will keep you posted.
I've had ulcers in the past and tried prescription medications that did help, but I don't always want to go to the doctor when they flare up. I have a flare up 1-2x a year.
DGL licorice in chewable form will get rid of stomach pain in around 10 minutes. It's a little hard to get past the taste/texture of the chewables but it is the best thing out there. We're talking about pain that will stop me in my tracks and this stuff works. I take 1-2 chewables at a time and sometimes need to take throughout the day.
I was diagnosed with abdominal inflammation. This was in the area of the gall bladder. I tried DGL(Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice). In DGL, the glycyrrhizin compound-associated with high blood pressure-has been removed. I used the chewable kind. Dosage: two tablets when I started to have discomfort on my right side. After many years of having this condition, I have been cured with this product.
EC: Agreed, DGL is a great supplement. If you can't find it in your area of the world, try licorice root tea.
