Format: Paperback
This book is really helpful, and I am already starting to feel a lot better. They have a lot of good tips in there about lifestyle, and a lot of terrific recipes. You have to try "Turkey Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy" and "Nonna Vertolli's Minestrone".

Thanks for the help!

"Chronic Heartburn" Is a Sweet Dish June 4 2006
By Douglas Sheffield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In an area filled to the lid with cookbooks of every taste and portion, "Chronic Heartburn: Managing Acid Reflux and GERD Through Understanding, Diet and Lifestyle" is a welcome and well-prepared arrival for gastronomical considerations little served at present. For anyone who suffers heartburn, and thereby tends to view the kitchen with some trepidation, "Chronic Heartburn" is a gateway to culinary freedom and delicious experience. As enjoyable to read as it is written and researched, the book offers everything: causal information of acid reflux (including informative diagrams), treatment options (including herbal ones), lifestyle modifications, guides to foods that hurt and heal, charts for effectively managing heartburn, and over one-hundred recipes, from soups to smoothies to main-course meats and seafood. Among my favorites: grilled halibut with papaya salsa, Russian-style borscht and mango chicken. As one who, like many, does suffer bouts of heartburn, I've come across few books that so effectively take the worry out of dining.

Great recipes! May 15 2006
By L. Volpe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not only informative with easy-to-comprehend details about the digestive system, but also a wonderful cookbook! It has healthy recipes that are good for people who suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, and other digestive ailments. Yet, these recipes are great for dieters, veggie lovers, and those who just want to eat healthy foods. The Smoothies and Juices are fantastic drinks with summer approaching! This is a must-have book for healthy eating.

Chronic Heartburn Review June 22 2008
By Debra A. Hipskind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this book. Some things are a little contradictory to other web sites such as eggs should be eaten with caution and then they suggest it for one of your meals. However, there are alot of recipes that I have found to be very soothing for my stomach. Especially the beta power soup. I was to the point to where medicine wasn't even working for me very well and this book helped me to get on the right track. I do feel better since following the diet and would recommend this book.

Good Overview and Handy Recipes Jan. 18 2007
By A. Pearsall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives a good overview of the problem, with a lot of basic information with a good level of detail, but in not too technical terms.

The diet recommendations are great, and helped me put together the best diet plan for me. I especially appreciated the explanations of why different foods are bad for you, because there are about 4 different ways foods can contribute to the GERD problem. One or two of the meal plan suggestions might be questionable, such as eating strawberries when you have severe pain, but otherwise, it does a great job. The recipes are helpful, too.

Relief June 24 2011
By Lucy Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am soooo... glad that I purchased this book for my mother who is 70 plus years old. Her acid reflux had caused some serious health problems, and part of the problem was a lack of understanding. She had suffered for years and felt that medication alone was enough. After reading and studing this book, she has an understanding of her condition that has led her to use the recipies and other information to change her eating habits. She is much improved and for this I am grateful. Well Done!!!
