Amazon Discussion: How Pepzin GI helps

Grace asked:
Hey Kevin,

How are you feeling now? Can you give us an update?


Kevin answered"
Hi Grace
Sure. There really is nothing new to report. I am 85% healed, rarely need the
Pepzin GI anymore, and am slowly re-introducing foods back into my diet.
Occasionally, something will oddly bother me (Like a sweet potatoe last week -_-
It's beyond me why...) and I'll have mild indigestion. Then I pop 2 Pepzin GI
every 3 hours in the first 8 hours, and 1 every 3 hours after. Then usually
within 48 hours I'm fine. The Pepzin GI is a wonderful "pain killer and healing
promoter", it won't cure any underlying issues but as part of a targeted and
healthy routine it can do wonders to ease discomfort and speed up healing.

Grace says:
If it doesn't cure any underlying issues, how has it made you feel better? Sorry
I just don't understand what you mean by this.
I have frequent sour stomach issues because of a long-term use of NSAIDs. I take
2 Pepzin/day as labeled on the bottle and I have been doing this for 2 weeks,
but am not seeing results yet. Should I be more patient?


Kevin says:
Sure. Let me give you an example. Let's say you got the flu virus, and part of
the symptoms are a fever. Taking Tylenol will reduce the fever, but it won't
cure you of the flu. In this same way, I've found that Pepzin GI treats your
symptoms and provides comfort, but on its own will not sure you of anything.
For me, my stomach was irritated by stimulants in college. It's in the process
of healing, but some foods still bother it. And so I take Pepzin GI now only to
help with those days when I ate the wrong food and my stomach hurts. Now if
tomatoes hurt my stomach, it would be dumb to have tomatoes all the time and
just take Pepzin GI afterward, that'd like constantly hitting your thumb with a
hammer and then taking painkillers to not feel it. So for me, I use Pepzin GI as
a complementary supplement that as part of a targeted routine to heal whatever
you have, works well to ease discomfort.

It treats the symptoms, not the root cause. That's how it doesn't cure any
underlying issues, but can make you feel better. Back when my stomach was worse,
I see it in a different role (speeds healing slightly). Now, I have progressed
to the point of diminishing returns, and it doesn't deems to speed healing
noticeably since I've gotten better. I use it for comfort now.

LOL. Have you read any of the other posts I made? You're asking about two weeks,
my other posts talk in terms of. months and years. You said you hurt your
stomach with long term NSAID use? Give it the same amount of time you hurt it
to, to heal. You're looking at the month to years scale. Not weeks. And that's
only if you stay off NSAIDs and eat a diet that doesn't push you backward.

Grace says:
Thank you for your detailed reply.
Then if Pepzin GI just treats the symptoms, what do you think eventually heals
your stomach and brings it back to normal? Just time, diet, things like that?
And for how long did you take stimulants (you said caffeine and alcohol?) in
college that it stressed out your stomach?


Kevin says:
Sure. Your body heals it. In the same way that a cut on your arm heals without
any interference. Your damaged cells that normally protect your stomach lining
need to be replaced through the normal cell regeneration process. If you spend 6
months wearing then down, expect it to take at least 6 months for them to fully
be replaced by new cells. Assuming you remove the original irritant, and are
gentle with your stomach while in a sensitive state, time and healthy behaviors
are all that's needed usually.
For me it was mostly stimulants and no sleep, which hurt my stomach lining and
impaired it's ability to heal itself. I spent probably 6 months on the
stimulants and no sleep, and then another year mistreating it and eating foods
that my stomach was newly sensitive too. Ive been on the upward trend for about
a year after all that. It's been probably almost 3 years since the saga first
began. I'd say I'm 85% healed.

Grace says:
So, you started the Zinc Carnosine a year after the 6 months on the stimulants
and the 1 year mistreating your stomach?
I took NSAIDs for a month for my TMJ and the side effects started hitting me
after that. I don't take NSAIDs now of course, but I do take Zantac whenever I
feel like I have an acidic stomach. I don't want to have to rely on drugs to
feel better, which is why I am taking Pepzin GI. Can you tell me how exactly
Pepzin GI helps alleviate the symptoms? I heard it has a compilation effect that
takes 4~8 weeks, but how exactly does it help? Does it make your stomach produce
less acid by coating your stomach lining? I know it is supposed to help and with
diet/time my stomach will get better, but I just want to know what it could do
to make you feel better.


Kevin says:
Yes, give or take a few months.
And as to its method of action, the Internet can explain that for you very well.
Just Google it, and you'll find research papers and Pepzin GI's website.
