More About This Textbook


“Many individuals who suffer from heartburn think this is not an important disease and are afraid to talk with their physicians. I hope this book will open their eyes. What’s more, the book is truly a delight to read!” —Joel E. Richter, M.D., The Cleveland Clinic Foundation
Help is here—now and in the long term—for heartburn sufferers. This is the first book for general readers about treating and preventing one of America's most widespread medical problems. Much of the advice in Heartburn comes from the frontiers of medicine. It dispels myths about heartburn, calms fears, and points sufferers toward correct diagnosis and therapies. If you're a sufferer you should know: how and why acid reflux disease (heartburn) has come to be known as "The Great Masquerader"; what is the best medication for you; how antacids can help you and how they can sometimes harm you; why you may be taking the wrong dosage of your present medication or taking it at the wrong time; how to tell if your asthma, hoarseness, or chest pain is related to reflux disease; how lifestyle changes can help your condition; how a recently developed breakthrough drug taken once a day can virtually eliminate symptoms in less than two months. As Dr. Wolfe says in his introduction, "After you have read this book, you should be provided with the information to relieve or even cure" your condition. Originally published in cloth under the title The Fire Inside. For this paperback edition, the authors have updated the text throughout and added a new preface.

"The paperback edition of this reference has been updated with the latest research findings...explains how antacids can harm as well as help, and how lifestyle changes can alleviate heartburn, also known as acid reflux disease."
