I was wondering how much of the avoids are you actually going to swallow ? I mean some of the sugar: xylitol and vegetabel glycarin as well as the peppermint would get into you stomach But would the gums really get into your body ??
I have found a finnish product with only xyiltol made from birch - I do fine with it as well as as my kid- I do chew more "normal chewinggums as well when I´m desperate- and I don´t feel much reaction.- but I would like to find somthing more apropiate.

you might give tree-gums a go! some (like pine) are likely shards by now, but letting them rest in your mouth will give you a (gum-like consistency soon) chew with flavour that will last many hours. Many of these are tree-resins and are easy to spot because they look like very dark yellow-brown congealed ooze coming from the split bark of a tree!

Juicyfruit would be a great gum because it used to be made from jackfruit...a highly beneficial for O cancer suffers...but considering most gums increase the stomach acid.....gums as a whole should be avoided by O's

Well, after reading all the posts on this thread I believe I have the answer.
No. There are not any "good" gums for Type O's. There are some that are worse than others, but not a one is "good." It all comes down to how bad you want to chew that gum, and: Are you willing (as an O nonnie) to suffer the consequences of chewing that gum?
It's all about choices. With the BTD, we now have the abilit to choose wisely.
Knowledge is power. SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.
I only chew when I absolutely need to from dry mouth or not having my toothbrush with me, which is rare cause I carry it in my purse. I've been known to many times, pull over and brush my teeth by the side of the road with some bottled water and Eco-dent paste! ha...
