I have two reviews for this book. They propose a dro;ping week induction diet that eliminates food below a certain Ph and then gradually adding back in some foods and avoiding others all together.

I just don’t have the time or inclination to put this much effort into my food. It also give a lot of good recipes and foods that are okay to eat. The recipes listed have carb counts that would send my janie sugar through the stratosphere. ETA update March Maybe not, but I wish they had covered more, especially spices and jamle.

The science portion is short, sweet, and explains LPR, silent reflux, etc and the authors’ theories clearly and concisely without being too simplistic although the lobster claw thing was a little silly, but whatever.

I would recommend the book to anyone who has had difficulty finding relief from GERD and silent reflux.


Because my recent diagnosis by and ENT specialist has answered what has been somewhat of a nightmare that started this past This is a must read for everyone, including those who may not think that they have a problem with reflux. The charts tracking acidity of various foods were a helpful start as was the perspective about the pepsin bonding to tissues in the esophagus so any dietary acid activates it to break iamie the proteins of your tissue.

I am allergic to many of the ingredients in the recipes so they may appeal to others.

So far, my bf and I have made two recipes.

Dropping Acid

I know I get acid reflux and have some of the symptoms of silent reflux so I thought I would pick this book up. To be honest, I didn’t find the recipes all that appealing but will be using the list of foods and acidity level.

It also says in a chart that Barrett’s esophagus, pre-cancer, is not found much in silent reflux and then later on says it is found as frequent as in GERD classic heartburn. Sounds like your personal problem, not something I need to care about.

One of the main reasons people turn to convenience foods is that they don’t feel they have the time to cook. I tried the Fast Tract diet – eropping was more difficult than Dropping Acid.

The authors do acknowledge that people vary in which foods are the worst triggers, so there is some leeway for experimentation once the GERD symptoms are reduced. I also happen to be one of the few for whom breads make my GERD go wild.

No more middle of the night or morning coughing fits.

Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure

I haven’t tried out the recipes yet but some do look approachable. The most real information was in the very short section that explains what causes reflux problems to begin with. There is a companion blog that has a lot of the key info — I refer to it often: Koufmann is correct in that you need to be stricter until the inflammation goes down.

I don’t have the energy to cook for every meal I eat, especially on a diet that requires eating smaller, more frequent meals, to treat a condition that often includes nausea. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The blog is a useful companion to the book and a good starting point if you want to know more. The only potential problem is that many of the recipes seem a bit involved.
