Dropping Acid is well written; easy for lay person to understand. Have already tried the 2 week plan and it did work. No cure for my very severe case but has helped a great deal. Thanks for info Dorothy C Dahlonega GA

I have been doctoring for two plus years for acid reflux. My doctor has recommended this book to me several time. I was pleased to finally find it in Nook format. The book is written for patients not doctors and provides easy to understand lists of food to eat and those to avoid. The rest of the book is filled with recipes that use the good foods and avoids the ones that could cause the body to have a negative reaction. If acid reflux is a problem for you, this book can be very helpful.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with reflux. My GI doctor was only able to recommend some marginal nutritional advice and  prescribe medication, but my common sense told me there was more that could be done. The authors have year of experience treating and researching reflux. This book offers much more than recipes and includes easy to understand basics of how this occurs and how to remedy many of the symptoms through diet. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is due to the need for more recipes. Otherwise, I've found this book to be very informative.

This is the best resource I have found for dealing with my GERD. Following the suggested diet has already brought some relief - I'm looking forward to more improvement in the long term.

This book has plenty of good advice on the how's and the why's of the increasingly common problems of reflux. I recommend it both for the information and the dietary information. Some of it was new to me -- some of it was things I know, but this is worthwhile resource for a health concern that can have lasting consequences.

Look at this in hard copy before purchasing in the Nook version. Most of the recipes deal with fish or shellfish. If you are allergic to these foods, you are not going to benefit from the one's in the book. Also, a lot of the ingredients are not something easy to find. Very disappointed in the recipes (foo, foo).

This book was a quick read, with a lot of very interesting information. I bought three copies, passed one on to a registered dietitian. If you just follow some of the easy to understand tips regarding changes to make in your diet, you should feel better immediately.
