a life saver!

I've recently been trying more natural remedies (not pills) to manage my gerd symptoms, and this book has helped me so much! I've found that I'm best off if I make my own food, that way I know exactly what's in it and that there won't be any trigger foods present. This book is full of tons of great recipes that are easy to follow, don't have a lot of hard to find ingredients, taste good, and don't give me any pain after eating! I've actually never really cooked regularly before, but now I want to all the time. I've made probably about 5 different things out of it in the past 2 weeks and they've all turned out well. The first half of the book has a lot of good information too, stuff that I already knew, but stuff that could be very helpful to someone who has not previously read countless books on gerd. I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to manage their symptoms without drugs. I noticed some other reviewers mentioned that there are some ingredients present in the recipes that cause gerd symptoms for them. If you read the paragraphs before that section, they explain that trigger foods vary per person. Something that causes symptoms for you may not cause symptoms for another person. They give you ways to substitute out for other ingredients, and in some cases say that if this ingredient causes you problems, just leave it out. I've done just that and everything worked out well.

Handbook for acid reflux

My wife has had MS for several years now and I've been trying to get her to eat healthy because of it. She and I both suffer from acid reflux - her's stems from her MS. After reading the book she changed her eating habits. Within a few weeks her acid reflux actually abated. She's eating much healthier now and the reflux is on the mend. She now 'swears' by the book and it really helped. My acid reflux has been long term and while the book is good, my results haven't matched the wife's. The book makes you responsible for your results. The recipes aren't exactly 'worker friendly' - as they take time and if your job involves many hours....they won't work. It might have been better if the recipes weren't included and just facts about what works, and doesn't, - were expanded. Saying that, the book does work. It's a wonderful book - much recommended.

I like to cook and eat

I have heartburn and find myself unconciously avoiding the foods that make me feel bad. I haven't been able to find any recipes worth making in other books and websites. They're either boring or just not appetizing. I just bought this book, but it's easy to follow and actually lists foods I should avoid and tells me about other treatments besides medication (which I hate to take). So far I've tried only one of the recipes (oven fried chicken), but it was delicious. Even my husband (who does not have heartburn) loved it, as did my two kids. If the other recipes are this good, this book will find a permanent place in my kitchen!
