Heal Heartburn and Lose Weight, Naturally

If you suffer from acid reflux, you’re not alone. More than 50 million Americans have GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, and while antacids can be effective for short-term relief, they can also cause dangerous medical conditions if they’re used for more than the recommended fifty days at a time. Luckily, The Acid Reflux S

This book is VERY repetitive. The first portion of the book was way too long and could have easily been cut down to a 1/4 of the size it was. I felt like I was reading something that was geared towards twelve year olds understanding acid reflux. Every chapter was interspersed with the all consuming repetitious promise of eventually getting to the main ideas behind the acid reflux solution on the next page. It also read like what the author had to say about curing acid reflux could have fit into ...more

This is a very good guide for those suffering from acid reflux and/or GERD. I have a better understanding of why my doctor said to not drink caffeinated or carbonated beverages, coffee, or eat chocolate. I have started following the lifestyle mentioned in the book. I now know what the medication does and I will try to wean myself off of it, and am losing weight in the process.

I don't have acid reflux so my experience reading this book will obviously not be the same as for people that do have it.

The first part of the book has some description of the disorder and some tips on lifestyle changes you can make to help ease the symptoms. The second part is recipes. While the first part was interesting, the second part was a little weird to me - most recipes had lots of spices and ingredients, though the methods didnt seem too difficult. The author does say that while some

I have never suffered through acid reflux until about 10 dayas ago, with a sudden and painful onset. I checked out this library book about 5 days in so I was following many of the tips Dr. Rodriguez mentioned in the book, but what I found so appealing about this book was the cookbook portion which is the latter 2/3 of the text. The photos make the meals look especially appealing. We haven't yet made any of the recipes but we bought ingredients for several of them yesterday, so I may update this ...more

3.5 stars, rounding up

I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, so I can't comment on that. I did like the first half of the book with the explanations of reflux and the importance of the diet. Lots of good, straight-forward information about GERD is included as well as information about the different methods of treatment. I also like that the emphasis is not on deprivation but on small ways to modify and improve living with GERD (the biggest of which is diet!). Looking forward to trying some of t

Help is on the way!

"The Acid Reflux Solution.
Finally a book that's straight to the point for people suffering with this very common ailment.

What foods to avoid.
To drink before & after meals but not during meals.
Several smaller portions of veg's & fruits each day.

Educational and a necessary tool for acid reflux and GERD sufferers.

I will be referring back to this book as needed.

The chapter sections has lots of informative facts about what causes acid-reflux and tips on how to reduce its affects. The author is a doctor as well as an acid-reflux patient. The information given is based on evidence-based medicine (facts and clinical trials). The recipes are plentiful but nothing special really. I am a picky eater and didn't see anything that I wanted to try. But the tips in the narrative helped me understand and manage my acid-reflux better.

Gives a good, clear explanation of what causes acid reflux, and presents an easy solution for those (like me) who suffer from it. In addition to the diet and exercise recommendations, there are about ten quick, easy things you can do right off the bat to decrease the episodes (including elevating the head of your bed). But the lion's share of the book is a cookbook full of tasty-looking recipes. Just wish they'd had more pictures of the dishes!

This book is about obviously acid-reflux as the title says. I'm not sure I really learned anything new except it did explain some things better. It gives you a few tips on what to eat, some explainations of different medicines, allergies, etc. There is about 60 pages of explainations and then the rest is recipes.

Some good suggestions for those suffering with reflux. I would have liked a little more detailed example of the foods to eat and not to eat. The recipes looked good but many have more ingredients that I am willing to deal with in making a meal but would love some of them if someone else was doing the cooking! I do plan to try a few of them.

Excellent book with sound medical advice. The author is a gastroenterologist which means the book is based on real research (no "woo" as is too often found in any resource claiming natural healing). The only criticism I have is that the recipes are pretty complicated. They do give a good idea of what to eat, though, and probably can be simplified.

The first 60 pages were about acid reflux and how to prevent it. It was very clear and easy to understand. The rest of the book contained recipes. Unfortunately, none of the recipes were anything I would be willing to eat.

I do wish every recipe had a photograph with it, but overall pretty good. Easy to understand, straight-forward. Pasta recipes sound the best.

Yet another book on acid reflux for grown, overweight adults. It's hard to put weight on a child with reflux when all the books tell you to lose weight. Some of the recipes may work though.

The advice portion was very helpful. The recipes not so much. Garlic ! Tomatoes! Many of the recipes featured trigger ingredients.

Tips & suggestions are very helpful. Some of the recipes will work for our family--not as many as I hoped. But not GERD kid friendly recipes. And not all recipes are gluten-free.
