Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many people are surprised to discover that gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is more than just a little heartburn. It is often life altering and, if it advances to Barrett's esophagus or esophageal cancer, can even be life threatening. This book opens with a useful, accessibly written handbook describing the disease and its complications, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as advice regarding helpful lifestyle changes. The coverage is surprisingly thorough considering that this part of the book is a mere 97 pages. The second half is a cookbook full of low-fat, low-acid, yet delicious-sounding recipes that offer great alternatives to the bland diet GERD patients often experience. Many of the recipes are remakes of common dishes that are usually off limits because of taboo ingredients. A few recipes do seem a little questionable, e.g., a potato recipe featuring horseradish, a common reflux trigger. Overall, however, this is a nice addition to most collections.-KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Eatonville, WA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Excellent!

    Whether you suffer from occasional heartburn or full-blown GERD, this book is your quintessential guide to living a healthier and happier life. It provides a perfect blend of facts and accessible insight for improving your quality of life. The book is presented in two very comprehensive sections. The first part deals primarily with the technical aspects of this debilitating disease. The medical information is very well written in plain English yet it conveys the latest in scientific knowledge about acid reflux. You¿ll have no trouble learning all there is to know and what you can do to ensure accurate diagnosis and successful treatment. This first section alone could be a bestseller given the millions of people who struggle with any form of this disease. The second part of the book is equally remarkable in its presentation. It offers easily followed, delicious recipes that have been created specifically to abate GERD. Best of all, most of the ingredients are already in your cupboard! Any of the appetizers, soups, salads, entrees and desserts will satisfy even the most discerning gourmet. Each recipe includes a brief introduction, concise directions and nutritional analysis. Banish the bland and start eating your way to health. If you thought you were doomed to a painful existence, and a diet of bread and water, this book will change your mind and your life.
