If the patient has any irritation in his gastrointestinal tract, this product will help heal it up. A person with stomach ulcers lacks hydrochloric acid and pepsin, so he does not digest his food. Instead of being digested, his food rots, creating gas and an organic acid which starts to erode his stomach. Most people talk about the ulcer patient having too much acid. The acid that he has too much of is the acid produced by this rotting food. If it is protein that is rotting, the process is called putrefaction. If carbohydrate is rotting, the process is called fermentation. If fat is rotting it is called rancification. If the patient had hydrochloric acid and pepsin in his stomach he would not have this acid of fermentation or putrefaction. In other words, if he digested his food, it wouldn’t rot. The usual approach, if a person has this acid of putrefaction or fermentation in his stomach, is to take an antacid. This gives temporary relief, but makes the situation worse than before. Not only does the antacid neutralize the acid of putrefaction, it also neutralizes the person’s digestive acid. So the next time he eats he has even less digestive acid than before, and the problem becomes worse. It’s a vicious circle that often leads to stomach or duodenal ulcers. So what the ulcer patient really needs is digestive support, such as ZYPAN. And of course to stop taking his antacid. He should take the ZYPAN in the middle of his meal so the hydrochloric acid in the product will be less likely to irritate his ulcer. However, if this causes irritation, he will have to heal the ulcer first with OKRA-PEPSIN E3, then use ZYPAN to prevent another one.
