"A groundbreaking program by one of the nation's leading experts on acid reflux to help the millions of diagnosed and undiagnosed sufferers identify the silent, potentially deadly symptoms and provide them with a proven 28-day eating plan to stop acid damage in its tracks"--
Do you suffer from abdominal bloating; a chronic, nagging cough or sore throat; post-nasal drip; a feeling of a lump in the back of your throat; allergies; or a shortness of breath? If so, odds are that you are experiencing acid reflux without recognizing the silent symptoms. Even without the presence of heartburn or indigestion, more than 60 million people are suffering from acid-related disorders that are undetected or untreated--and leading to long-term health problems, including the rapid rise of esophageal cancer. Since there are no outward signs of acid damage and the typical symptoms might not be recognized, until now you might not have known how pervasive acid reflux is or that you have it. In The Acid Watcher Diet, Dr. Jonathan Aviv, one of the leading authorities on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, helps readers identify those silent symptoms and provides his proven solution for reducing whole-body acid damage quickly and easily. His 28-day program includes a two-phase eating plan, menu guide, and recipes and works to immediately neutralize acid, stabilize pH levels, and relieve the inflammation at the root of acid reflux. Dr. Aviv's Power of Five rule will help readers discover the key foods that offer fast relief, and his Daily Six will reveal the foods to avoid (onion, tomato, citrus, and more). The Acid Watcher Diet's groundbreaking program is just what millions of readers need to reduce acid and balance their bodies and minds for optimal health.
Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure is the first book to explain how acid reflux, particularly silent reflux, is related to dietary and lifestyle factors. It also explains how and why the reflux epidemic is related to the use of acid as a food preservative. Dr. Koufman defines the symptoms this shockingly common disease and explains why a change in diet can alleviate some of the most common symptoms. Dropping Acid offers a dietary cure for acid reflux, as well as lists of the best and worst foods for a reflux sufferer. The book’s recipes use tasty fats as flavorings, not as main ingredients; included are the recipes for tasty dishes that prove living with reflux doesn't mean living without delicious food.
Most of us think of acid reflux disease as something annoying, a nuisance. When someone hears the words “acid reflux” they generally think of it as the symptoms of stomach bloating, stomach gas and heartburn, usually caused by eating spicy food late at night. Often, we treat our heartburn by going to the local drugstore and buying over the counter medications such as Tums, Alka-Seltzer, Maalox, and Pepto-Bismol. “Plop plop, fizz, fizz the heartburn goes away so now I can continue on with my day.” Alas, how we all wish it was that simple. The fact is that tens of millions of people have acid reflux without heartburn. How could that be? Dr. Jonathan E. Aviv, MD, FACS, a world-renowned physician, surgeon, educator, and inventor, and one of the leading authorities on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, cough, and voice and swallowing disorders, draws upon his decades of medical experience, both in and out of the operating room, to bring you the real story of acid reflux disease and its devastating impact on the general public. He explicitly and meticulously connects the extremely acidic, highly processed "food" Westerners eat, to acid reflux disease, and ultimately to esophageal cancer. This connection is a startling breakthrough and Dr. Aviv provides a solution with his Acid Watcher® Diet, a unique dietary program that combines low acid foods along with the three macro-nutrients with a high fiber component, to make delicious, healthy meals, designed using easy to follow recipes and meal plans, to keep your body acid free while maintaining excellent health for years to come. Killing Me Softly From Inside is not just another medical self-help book, it may very well be a prescription that can one day save your life.

No matter how delicious a feast is before you, the prospect of that burning pain, nausea, and even vomiting can be enough to make you turn away.

You'll gain valuable insight on the small, easy changes that can make a big difference, and get answers to questions like: Is your posture and sleep position working against you? Can chewing gum really help or hurt? What supplements may work just as well, or better than, prescriptions? How does eating more often help prevent symptoms? Whether you've tried every treatment available and still haven't found relief, or are hoping to avoid prescription medication completely, Acid Reflux Diet & Cookbook for Dummies is a clear, comprehensive guide to getting rid of GERD.

In his midtwenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week. When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing, and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? The Bulletproof Diet, an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance. The Bulletproof Diet will challenge--and change--the way you think about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat high levels of healthy saturated fat, work out and sleep less, and add smart supplements. In doing so, you'll gain energy, build lean muscle, and watch the pounds melt off. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey went from being overweight and sick in his twenties to maintaining a 100-pound weight loss, increasing his IQ, and feeling better than ever in his forties. The Bulletproof Diet is your blueprint to a better life.
NBC Today show nutrition and diet guru Madelyn Fernstrom and award-winning neuroscientist and pharmacologist John Fernstrom —partnering with AARP— present the ultimate guide to food and medicine interaction. Millions of Americans take prescription drugs to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or other conditions. But beware: The foods you eat and the medications you take could be working against each other. Don’t Eat This If You’re Taking That takes the mystery out of food and medication interactions. This easy-to-use guide details foods that can interfere with the action of the medication—whether taken for the short or long term. In this book, readers can easily find a medication, see what foods to avoid, and make smart swaps. We all believe a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products is part of healthy eating—right? Not always. Dr. Fernstrom explains exactly what foods to avoid when and why. For instance, If you’re taking cholesterol medicine, you should cut out—or cut down on—grapefruit. On a blood thinner? Avoid dark green veggies. If you’re on thyroid medication, nix the soy. And more small diet changes with big health payoffs! As an added bonus, each chapter offers a “Dietary Supplements Alert” box, providing the most up-to-date information on interactions with vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements. With this concise, scientifically based guide, consumers can easily personalize their eating plan to work with, not against, their medications.
