Overview

Relief at Last for the Millions of Chronic Heartburn Sufferers

Written by an internationally recognized expert on digestive diseases, this much-needed book brings relief to the tens of millions who suffer from the pain of severe heartburn almost daily. If you find yourself dependent on antacids, losing sleep, missing work, or canceling plans because of heartburn discomfort, you may be among those who struggle with gastroesophageal reflux disorder, or GERD. The good news is that your condition is treatable----especially in its early stages. Drawing from his extensive experience diagnosing and treating patients, as well as the latest research from around the globe, Dr. Anil Minocha explains the causes of heartburn----and the potentially serious consequences of leaving it untreated. In addition to providing an overview of the problem, Dr. Minocha offers invaluable information on:
* The latest treatment options-from nutrition and simple lifestyle changes to drugs, surgery, and alternative remedies
* How your diet and weight may be affecting your GERD
* The relationship between stress and heartburn
* Dealing with GERD during pregnancy, and in infants, children, and the elderly

    Best written guide for heartburn sufferers

    Wonderful book ! It has 17 chapters plus 4 appendices. Covers everything from what heartburn is to what causes it and more. Tests for diagnosis and physician approaches including some alternative medicine strategies. Too much to cover in this review but the book addresses all age groups and lays out in a really enjoyable manner the nuts and bolts of having to live with heartburn and how to get the best medicine and even how to choose the best specialist. Simply put buyers of this book can look forward to living a better life if they suffer from Heartburn. Congrats to the authors for a superb and much needed book
