Did you know that you can stop acid reflux immediately and permanently without using any drugs? What if someone told you that fats, coffee, alcohol, spices and even smoking are not triggers for acid reflux and it had all been a big mistake? What if someone suggested that carbohydrates might be responsible for the huge increase in the rate of esophageal cancer? What if someone told you that GERD was not really a disease so much as our bodies way of coping with a diet we did not evolve with? Heartburn Cured makes a strong argument that the consumption of excess carbohydrates is the root cause and real trigger for acid reflux and the resulting complications like Barrett's and esophageal cancer. Have you ever wondered why most trigger foods are associated with carbs (sugar in coffee, sweet mixes in mixed drinks, pizza crust with tomato sauce topping)? This breakthrough diet book is written by a microbiologist who suffered from chronic heartburn for 20 years before getting fed up with uninformed GI medical doctors prescribing drugs that either did not work or were associated with serious side effects and health problems. In Heartburn Cured, the author explains the role of intestinal microorganisms in digestion and provides clear and easy to understand evidence that excess carbohydrates are converted to gas by gut microbes and the gas produced drives acid reflux (and likely IBS symptoms as well). Heartburn Cured delivers a death blow to heartburn and GERD by harnessing the glycemic index, tailoring controlled carbohydrate dieting to freeing people from GERD and heartburn as well as the PPIs, H2 blockers and even antacids.This breakthrough diet book is written by a microbiologist who suffered from chronic heartburn for 20 years before getting fed up with uninformed GI medical doctors prescribing drugs that either did not work or were associated with serious ...
