Newton, Mass., March 7 — Publisher i30 Media today launched Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes: A guide to acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD for patients and families (ISBN: 9781641880077). In the book, author, doctor, and Harvard Medical School Professor J. Thomas Lamont, M.D. uses plain-English explanations, case studies, and illustrations to explain the basics of heartburn and acid reflux, from causes to treatments. Topics include:
- How the human stomach works
- How reflux occurs
- Heartburn symptoms
- Modern methods to diagnose acid reflux
- Trigger foods to avoid and acid reflux diets
- Lifestyle changes for reflux control
- Acid reflux pillow, bed, and sleeping tips
- Antacids for heartburn relief, and other heartburn treatments
- Acid reflux medicines, from acid blockers to PPIs
- Surgical procedures to diagnose and treat acid reflux
The author also describes four cases involving heartburn and acid reflux. Through the stories of an obese patient, a new mother, a 64-year-old suffering from severe acid reflux, and a college student, readers will learn how heartburn and GERD impact the lives of ordinary people, the types of treatment that are available, and what the road to recovery looks like. While some patients experience heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms on a daily basis and despair that they will ever recover, there are in fact a range of acid reflux treatment options that can offer relief.
Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes is not a do-it-yourself guide—a doctor is needed to diagnose and treat serious cases of acid reflux and GERD. However, this guide can help readers understand what doctors are recommending and why. If you or a loved one has acid reflux, Acid Reflux & Heartburn In 30 Minutes can be an invaluable and expert resource to help you understand and deal with the condition.
