Format: Paperback
I was absolutely in a hurry to get this book, because GERD is for me a big issue. I literally had to change my eating habits (for example, I don't eat a big dinner nor do I eat after 6:30pm.) This problem is shared by many people, a lot of them women, and many other health issues (thyroid problems, asthma, and obesity) are associated with acid reflux disease or GERD. It isn't healthy--you can get throat problems and it sure is a pain. Sometimes there are no symptoms save hoarseness in the morning, but it's no less a health concern.

The book is comprehensive but easy to read. The author goes over the symptoms and causes of GERD (and you should see your physician about this--for me, it was my allergist who told ME I had it, then I noticed the symptoms later.) He goes over the various pharmaceutical treatments, but all of them have pros and cons. Better if you can control GERD naturally by diet and weight management. I agree.

The book also has food advice and recipes and this is helpful. I had to learn by trial and error--for example, he mentions spaghetti and meatballs as a trigger. No kidding! I limited pasta to lunchtime for a while, and NOW I cannot even eat pasta at lunch--instant fireball in the stomach. The author also warns about foods with modified food starch, a common ingredient used as a thickener that can trigger GERD. The recipes feature high fiber and ingredients that are less likely to trigger GERD so you have a place to start, some ideas to make meals that are more stomach-friendly. And at the risk of sounding like a killjoy, Rodriguez recommends cutting down on alcohol and smoking. I know from experience that even a glass of wine, too late in the evening, is like drinking a blowtorch. Good news however; by limiting alcohol, you may easily lose weight.

Because I am a physician, I was skeptical about learning anything from this book. However, I was so desperate to get off the acid reducing meds, which I truly believe are bad for us, that I bought and read it. I actually DID learn quite a bit, and found the book very practical, with sensible and sound advice based on good quality research, and easy to read. I followed Dr. Jorge's recommendations to the letter, was able to wean off the PPI medication I have taken for 10 years in 2 weeks. I feel absolutely great! The recipes are also excellent, and even if you don't make them, reading them will help you learn where to make changes in your own cooking and eating. I HIGHLY recommend this book, and have already asked many family members and patients to read it. A worthwhile investment of money and time for anyone tired of reflux and taking acid-reducing medication!

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By M. Morini on July 14, 2013
Format: Paperback
Part one of the book has a lot of background information on GERD, medical treatment of GERD and lifestyle changes to help manage it. This is all useful stuff, is easy to understand, and is nicely put together, although most of it you can get from a quick search on the internet. As some of the other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of emphasis on weight loss as being the solution to GERD so as someone who is normal weight I was a little disappointed as weight loss and most of the other lifestyle changes didn't apply to me. For example from p31, "And most will find, as I have, that losing 10 to 15 percent of body weight completely eliminates GERD. For people who are normal weight or even underweight and still suffer acid reflux after following the Acid Reflux Solution and adopting our anti-reflux recipes, there is probably a genetic or chronic physiological reason for it, and some ongoing medication or possible surgical intervention may be necessary."

Part two contains the recipes. For me, they are a bit too fancy to be cooking every day. However, I have made two of the recipes - the Spanish Chicken and Rice and the Morroccan Spiced Pork Loin with Apricots and Chickpeas. Both were delicious and the recipes were well written but I found that they did exacerbate my symptoms. Note the book does differentiate between foods that trigger reflux (by relaxing the valve (LES) in the lower esophagus) and foods that exacerbate the symptoms ("acid foods"), and the recipes seem to be geared towards reducing the foods that cause reflux and losing weight, rather than reducing the "acid foods". For these reasons, I think maybe some of the recipes would be okay after you get your reflux symptoms under control or to help with weight loss but not necessarily to "heal heartburn".

I loved this book The author also suffers from reflux issues and is a gastroenterologist. His insights and personal experience make this a worthwhile book to purchase. He is very realistic about what you can and cannot eat and his suggestions for lifestyle changes are realistic and simple to accomplish.

I found this book very helpful,learned a lot about acid reflux and ideas to treat it that don't involve traditional meds. It's taking awhile,but I'm doing better and have stopped using Prilosec. Also found a cookbook that features recipes for avoiding digestive symptoms called Acid Reflux:Simple Relief From Heartburn Indigestion and Reflux Fast! (*Special Edition*)..Highly reccommended.
