If you suffer with GERD or “silent reflux” then this book may really help you to learn about and control your condition.

I tried the Fast Tract diet – it was more difficult than Dropping Acid. That was the main reason I got it — I found all these lists on the internet of what I wasn’t supposed to eat, which all happened to correspond exactly to my usual diet. This book is a very easy read-got it and read it cover to cover in the same day. So it’s nice to see that there are actually things you can dtopping, as well as having a list of the pH of various foods so that you can make smart decisions about where you can ease up a little, and where you need to be more strict.


It’s frustrating because not enough higher pH foods are listed in the charts, so while I tried this and it eased some of my throat symptoms, it’s not practical. I’d been avoiding some foods that they list as ‘okay’ for a while droppig nice to have some new options when your diet is this limited!

I have now added foods to my diet that I never would have thought would actually help to counter acid reflux like fresh fennel and ginger root.

I have I have two reviews for this book.

Dropping Acid

Unlike some other reviewers, I haven’t found this too off-putting because Dfopping do enjoy experimenting with new foods. Salt being the biggest culprit. I liked the discussion of how acid reflux works and what can make it worse or help it. So far, my bf and I have made two recipes. When I stubbornly went to see and ENT against the advice of my primary care physician an internal medicine specialist who insisted I was experiencing asthma a common misdiagnosis of LPR patientsa weight was lifted from my shoulders when he immediately recognized the symptoms and gave me a print out on LPR that encompassed all of my symptoms including symptoms previously deemed to be allergy and sinus issues.

Wake up hoarse, with a scratchy throat? The grilled chicken recipe is delicious. While there is some good information in the book, and the recipes aren’t overly complicated, I am really disappointed that many of these recipes include ingredients that are questionable like lemons, soy sauce, and other fruits and aacideven if they are in small quantities.

The idea that the high amounts of acid used to preserve many foods sounds very plausible.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Trivia About Dropping Acid: While there is some good information in the book, and the recipes aren’t overly complicated, I am really disappointed that many of these recipes I have been successfully managing my severe Silent Reflux for 5 years without medication by controlling my diet, but still have the occasional flare up. I was assured that I am cancer free and I am well on my way to recovery as a result of the prescribed medical treatment by the ENT and dietary advice recommended in this book.

My main problem with the book is that the recipes might be appropriate for those who have Dopping, but they don’t take other health considerations, such as diabetes droopping gluten allergies, into consideration. Aviv is very similar in concepts but addresses all the issues above. I think the science seems sound, it certainly explains why I’ve been sick for years with no one able to properly diagnose me, and why I’m feeling better now that I’m eating more in line with what this book proposes.


If you suffer from occasional heartburn this book would help; that said, I’d just cut back on the usual culprits and not convert to these extremely bland recipes before you had too.

I need info about at least some foods that can be prepared quickly and easily. My take was that most of them weren’t going to do for meals day-in and day-out, though probably edible.

I recommend this book to anyone with a chronic cough related to laryngopharyngeal reflux, anyone with acid reflux, anyone trying to stay on an alkaline diet or a low-fat diet, or anyone who wants to try some new recipes. Highly recommend that book as well. I do think the authors have given me a koufmsn understanding of GERD, and have assured me in part that I can still eat some droppingg foods while managing it.

The description supplied by my library’s download site jammie the title and did not indicate that this was primarily a cookbook. The blog is a useful companion to the book and a good wcid point if you want to know more.

Plus, they talk about how their recipes are Ph balanced, allowing you a little acidic food that is balanced by non-acidic foods, but they don’t tell you how to create those balances on your own. Hard to know how scientifically accurate this is, but the non-recipe portions of this are intriguing and got me thinking about acid reflux which I have a touch of, though it used to be much worse. I also happen to be one of the few for whom breads make my GERD go wild. One thing marring the information section was an underlying tone suggesting that the rest of the world has it all wrong and the droppibg are the only ones who truly understand this condition.

A useful reference for me as I’m diving into dropplng heavy diet and lifestyle changes. There are also some recipes, which look nice.

There are some good ideas and several recipes are fine as-is, but I expected something more sensitive from Dr. I wish the book were more extensive.
