WINNER OF A GOLD BEN FRANKLIN AWARD! If you or a family member are among the millions of people suffering from heartburn, acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), you are dealing with discomfort that impacts eating, sleeping, and other aspects of daily life. In Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes, author, doctor, and Harvard Medical School Professor J. Thomas Lamont, M.D. uses plain-English explanations and case studies to explain the basics of heartburn and acid reflux, from causes to medical options. Topics in this acid reflux book include:
* How your stomach works
* How reflux occurs
* Heartburn symptoms
* Modern methods to diagnose acid reflux
* Trigger foods to avoid and acid reflux diets
* Lifestyle changes for reflux control
* Acid reflux pillow, bed, and sleeping tips
* Antacids for heartburn relief, and medical approaches to heartburn
* Acid reflux medicines, from acid blockers to PPIs
* Surgical procedures to diagnose and give acid reflux relief
The author also describes four cases involving heartburn and acid reflux. Through the stories of an obese patient, a new mother, a 64-year-old suffering from severe acid reflux, and a college student, you’ll learn how heartburn and GERD impact the lives of ordinary people, the types of medical options that are available, and what the road to recovery looks like. While some patients experience heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms on a daily basis and despair that they will ever recover, there are in fact a range of approaches that can offer heartburn relief.
Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes is not a do-it-yourself guide—a doctor is needed to diagnose and provide medical advice for serious cases of acid reflux and GERD. However, this acid reflux book can help you understand what your doctor is recommending and why. If you or a loved one has acid reflux, Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes can be an invaluable and expert resource to help you understand and deal with acid reflux symptoms.
