GASTRIC REPAIR COMPLEX is a unique and effective combination product using soothing mucilaginous herbs and bicarbonates for the support of upper gastrointestinal function and comfort. When the sphincter between the esophagus and stomach becomes weak, the result can be occasional heartburn.
Many products sold today for GI disorders act to block hydrochloric acid production or neutralize it. The problem with this approach is the inhibition of normal digestion and assimilation of protein, fat, carbohydrate, B vitamins, and minerals or has sterilizing effects on the hydrochloric acid output. When hydrochloric acid is blocked or neutralized, the GI protection is lost.
Gastric Repair Complex supports the development of normal protective mucosal barriers.

Diagnosed with erosive gastritis.
Based on a recommendation by my Naturopathic doctor, I took the Gastric Repair Complex capsules for 6 weeks. Did not feel any relief of my symptom (burning pain in the stomach) after 6 weeks, so my Naturopathic doctor told me to stop using the product.
Response from our Nutritionist & Biogenesis ND:
The product generally works very well BUT should accompany other diet and lifestyle changes with any patient with erosive gastritis. When I see a patient with this condition I evaluate the effect for food intolerance and/or allergy and also their intake of provoking foods such as high acid foods or acid stimulant foods and spices. Also, if Helicobacter pylori is involved Gastric Repair may be sufficient but not in all cases. Occasionally a Rx prescription therapy is needed as most allopaths would do or other natural treatments. So, I guess without the exact details of all the other stuff that should be done in these cases it is difficult for me to determine the reason for non response. Gastric Repair Complex is certainly soothing and has some mild anti-acid benefits, but, often root causes of the gastritis must be determined or if provoking triggers are not eliminated they block the healing process.
Gastritis can also be exacerbated by high stress, so if you have high stress in your life, I would encourage you to incorporate stress reducing techniques such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, guided imagery, counseling, etc.
