Sample Book Insights:

#1 The myth that underlies the conventional treatment of acid indigestion is that heartburn happens because we have too much acid in our stomachs. To relieve the pain, we simply need to reduce the level of acid.

#2 The acid-suppression theory, which governs the conventional medical therapy of acid indigestion, is based on the myth that acid indigestion, heartburn, and its more serious consequence, GERD, are the result of too much stomach acid.

#3 The incidence of indigestion, simple heartburn, and GERD increases with age. If too much acid were causing these problems, teenagers should have frequent heartburn, while Grandma and Grandpa should have much less.

#4 Heartburn is a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. GERD is not really a disease, but a syndrome consisting of one or more of these disorders: damage to the esophageal lining that may or may not produce symptoms, mild to severe inflammation of the delicate lining of the esophagus, and symptoms such as heartburn.
