I haven’t tried out A useful reference for me as I’m diving into some heavy diet and lifestyle changes. Dropping Acid offers a dietary cure for acid reflux, as well as lists of the best and worst foods for a reflux kojfman.

The authors main premise is that GERD has become epidemic because of changes in the American diet that include overconsumption of soda and highly acidic foods. In addition, many foods listed as ok cause me an issue.

One thing marring the information section was an underlying tone suggesting that the rest of the world has it all koufmna and the authors are the only ones who truly understand this condition. If only all the patients could resolve to make their meals instead of relying on meds Unfortunately, many of these contain pasta, barley, oats or breadcrumbs, and as I am avoiding gluten for my own health reasons, I won’t be trying them.

To have been through this drawn-out process of reaching the right diagnosis, I think this book is invaluable. My preliminary rating I received this last week as a First Reads giveaway.

The most real information was in the very short section that explains what causes reflux problems to begin with. Highly recommend that book as well. Clever title and a very interesting look at “silent reflux” – acid reflux that is irritates the throat, but does not really cause heartburn which is what I have.

I think the science seems sound, it certainly explains why I’ve been sick for years with no one able to properly diagnose me, and why I’m feeling better now that I’m eating more in line with what this book proposes.
