Everything You Need To Know About GERD
on April 3, 2003
This is an outstanding book. Elaine Magee has succeeded in collecting a wealth of information into a single, readable paperback that is invaluable to those struggling with, or having family members struggling with, acid reflux and related problems. Having asthma? Maybe not - asthma might be merely a symptom of the underlying problem that comes from GERD, and treating the asthma symptoms instead of the problem may actually make the underlying GERD worse. Read on and see. Many medical professionals are unfamiliar with the current research and extensive information about reflux that is contained in this book, and the information here is essential in learning to navigate your way into effective medical help for GERD problems, advocating for proper treatment, and discerning when you've found a doctor that has the background and knowledge to help.
