"Through the use of this book, we hope you will learn that having reflux is not the end of the world, that it is manageable with medication, surgery, and lifestyle modification, including diet. Hopefully, the condition will go from the thing that keeps you up at night to the thing you barely remember that you have. You can—and should—lead a fulfilling life, with or without the reflux."

—from the introduction

A good addition to cookbook library.

Many of the recipes had ingredients that people with acid reflux can't use....like tomato paste with (as tolerated) in the recipe.

Whether you suffer from occasional heartburn or full-blown GERD, this book is your quintessential guide to living a healthier and happier life. It provides a perfect blend of facts and accessible insight for improving your quality of life. The book is presented in two very comprehensive sections. The first part deals primarily with the technical aspects of this debilitating disease. The medical information is very well written in plain English yet it conveys the latest in scientific knowledge about acid reflux. You'll have no trouble learning all there is to know and what you can do to ensure accurate diagnosis and successful treatment. This first section alone could be a bestseller given the millions of people who struggle with any form of this disease.
The second part of the book is equally remarkable in its presentation. It offers easily followed, delicious recipes that have been created specifically to abate GERD. Best of all, most of the ingredients are already in your cupboard! Any of the appetizers, soups, salads, entrees and desserts will satisfy even the most discerning gourmet. Each recipe includes a brief introduction, concise directions and nutritional analysis. Banish the bland and start eating your way to health.
If you thought you were doomed to a painful existence, and a diet of bread and water, this book will change your mind and your life.

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!

I just received this book from Amazon.com and have already tried a few of the recipes. The Grilled Lamb chops with cucumber relish was excellent. Another benefit is that all the recipes seem to be low in fat! I'll be showing this book to my allergist and ENT specialist!

Excellent background information on the disease. One of the most complete descriptions and reasons why certain foods cause problems. However, I was very disappointed with the recipe section. I was expecting recipes for dishes that did not include foods that can cause heartburn. Instead, there were very common recipes, many containing several ingredients that GERD suffers should avoid, with instructions such as "if you have problems with onions, leave it out..." How helpful is that, really!?

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.

Good information on acid reflux. Many of the recipes had ingredients that people with acid reflux can't use....like tomato paste with (as tolerated) in the recipe. I found only six recipes for my family.

My main objective in buying this book was to find some easy recipes for tasty food I, as a reflux sufferer (laryngo-pharyngeal reflux, to be exact), could enjoy. This was not the case at all. The book is very readable, and the information about reflux and things aside from diet that you could do to reduce it were helpful to some extent. However, I found the recipes dauntingly complex (my absolute favorite cookbook before this diagnosis was Cook Your Meals the Lazy Way), and included ingredients I had not heard of, were not common, or that are on the list of things people with reflux shouldn't eat. Some of these "forbidden" ingredients are marked with "as tolerated" or some such, but what good is that? I could take any everyday recipe from my standard cookbooks and simply remove the ingredients I'm not supposed to have (which is what I have been doing which results in a blah dish). Most of the lifestyle changes one needs to make for this condition (such as sleeping upright, not eating or drinking 3 hours or more before going to bed, etc.) are depressing enough, but the most depressing factor is having to eat the dullest, blandest food imaginable and feeling hungry all the time because of it or lacking any appetite because you know how dull and bland the next meal will be. I was really disappointed in the cookbook section. If you want to read it for the reflux information, then just borrow it from your local library; don't buy it.
