If so, odds are that you are experiencing acid reflux without recognizing its silent symptoms, which can lead to serious long-term health problems, including esophageal cancer. In The Acid Watcher Diet, Dr. Jonathan Aviv, a leading authority on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, helps readers identify those often misunderstood symptoms while providing a proven solution for reducing whole-body acid damage quickly and easily. His 28-day program is part of a two-phase eating plan, with a healthy balance of both macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants), that works to immediately neutralize acid and relieve the inflammation at the root of acid reflux. Dr. Aviv guides readers through healthy dietary choices with targeted recipes, helping them balance their bodies and minds for optimal health and break acid-generating habits for good.

According to this guide to dealing with acid reflux, physician Aviv tested the titular diet on more than 4,000 patients. He details only two case studies (one involving himself), and more would have been useful, but this is otherwise an informative and educational work. Aviv discusses acids ill effects, including heartburn, throatburn reflux, and esophageal cancer, and includes a short quiz to assess acid damage. Following a brief anatomy primer, Aviv moves to the topic of diet. Then he provides the 28-day blueprint, a healing phase that eliminates certain foods, such as citrus fruits, and incorporates a pound of vegetables and a half pound of fruit each day. Readers will appreciate healing food lists with easy-to-follow menus and more than 30 pages of simple recipes that make the 28-day regimen seem attainable. Aviv promises measurable results including the elimination of coughing, heartburn, bloating, and food cravings. A suggested two-week maintenance phase follows, reintroducing initially eliminated foods such as chocolate, alcohol, and vinegar. The cherry on top for this program is potential relief from a number of other ailments, including psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. Avivs research extends beyond his patient-tested diets and includes numerous outside sources, listed at the end. (Jan.)
