I have been taking mastic gum for 2 days now. Nothing yet.
I take 250mg 2x per day.
How long until I get some relief?
Two days is definitely not long enough to wipe out H. pylori. It can take weeks to months.
There is never a specific amount of time that any infection can be successfully treated since there are so many variables. For example, the extent of the infection, the person's immune status, the strength or amount of the compounds the person is taking to kill the infection, in the case of H. pylori the amount of stomach acid the person is producing, etc.
Something you can do to increase the effectiveness of the mastic gum though. I recommend taking the mastic combined with some licorice root, which also kills H. pylori, and a little yucca root that will increase the effectiveness of the other herbs.
In addition, the herbs should be increased to 3 to 4 times daily instead of twice daily. If the bacteria replicates faster than the herbs are killing it then you are not going to get anywhere.
