Eating for Acid Reflux: A Handbook and Cookbook for Those with Heartburn
Author: Jill Sklar
Gastroesophageal reflux disease—a digestive condition characterized by a surplus of gastric acid that backs up into the esophagus and damages fragile tissues—causes burning pain, nausea, and vomiting for millions of people each day. Now, in Eating for Acid Reflux, authors and fellow acid reflux sufferers Jill Sklar and Annabel Cohen offer an invaluable resource for all those seeking relief from acid reflux symptoms. Split into two user-friendly sections, Eating for Acid Reflux first provides essential information on the nature of the condition, mainstream and alternative therapies, essential lifestyle modifications, personal stories from others with the condition, and much more. The next section offers over 100 healthy, tasty, low-fat, low-acid recipes, ranging from American culinary favorites to exotic Thai, Mexican, and Italian dishes, and suggests simple substitutes for seemingly forbidden foods such as desserts and salad dressing. Complete with an extensive resource section, Eating for Acid Reflux is perfect for everyone newly diagnosed with acid reflux as well as for those who have struggled with the condition for years and are seeking new tips and diet ideas.
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.
