Do you suffer from abdominal bloating; a chronic, nagging cough or sore throat; post-nasal drip; a feeling of a lump in the back of your throat; allergies; or a shortness of breath? If so, odds are that you are experiencing acid reflux without recognizing the silent symptoms. Even without the presence of heartburn or indigestion, more than 60 million people are suffering from acid-related disorders that are undetected or untreated--and leading to long-term health problems, including the rapid rise of esophageal cancer. Since there are no outward signs of acid damage and the typical symptoms might not be recognized, until now you might not have known how pervasive acid reflux is or that you have it. In The Acid Watcher Diet, Dr. Jonathan Aviv, one of the leading authorities on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, helps readers identify those silent symptoms and provides his proven solution for reducing whole-body acid damage quickly and easily. His 28-day program includes a two-phase eating plan, menu guide, and recipes and works to immediately neutralize acid, stabilize pH levels, and relieve the inflammation at the root of acid reflux. Dr. Aviv's Power of Five rule will help readers discover the key foods that offer fast relief, and his Daily Six will reveal the foods to avoid (onion, tomato, citrus, and more). The Acid Watcher Diet's groundbreaking program is just what millions of readers need to reduce acid and balance their bodies and minds for optimal health.

Speech Pathology Management of Chronic Refractory Cough and Related Disorders

Genre: Medical

Cough is such a common experience that it in fact accounts for the largest number of ambulatory healthcare visits internationally. Most cases of acute cough resolve spontaneously, however chronic refractory cough is another matter. This is defined as a cough that lasts for longer than eight weeks, and persists despite medical treatment; and it is a significant health problem for many people. Often lasting for months or even years, chronic refractory cough has debilitating side effects including stress urinary incontinence, depression, poor sleep, headaches and reduced quality of life. Some patients resign from work and many avoid social situations. Even simple activities such as conversing or using the telephone can become distressing because talking can trigger coughing episodes. Although medical treatment is ineffective for chronic refractory cough, speech pathology intervention can be effective in treating the condition. Presently, there are no widespread education programs and material is generally disseminated through journal articles published in a wide array of literature and by word of mouth. This book fills the gap. It is the first manual available to speech pathologists to support their treatment of chronic refractory cough and to eliminate their reliance on conference presentations, infrequent journal articles and short textbook descriptions. Presented here are a comprehensive overview of the conditions, detailed outlines of therapy options, and qualified guidance on recent advances in this area that speech pathologists need and are looking for when treating these patients. With contributions from world leading clinicians, this is the first book worldwide on the topic. It offers a comprehensive overview of the condition, outlines therapy in great detail and consolidates recent advances in this area. It provides all materials needed for speech pathologists to assess and treat individuals and all practical resources and tools needed to treat the condition - supported with step-by-step instruction, clear and concise explanations, pragmatic advice on decision-making, and no less than 11 photocopiable assessment and treatment forms, patient handouts and more.

Most of us think of acid reflux disease as something annoying, a nuisance. When someone hears the words “acid reflux” they generally think of it as the symptoms of stomach bloating, stomach gas and heartburn, usually caused by eating spicy food late at night. Often, we treat our heartburn by going to the local drugstore and buying over the counter medications such as Tums, Alka-Seltzer, Maalox, and Pepto-Bismol. “Plop plop, fizz, fizz the heartburn goes away so now I can continue on with my day.” Alas, how we all wish it was that simple. The fact is that tens of millions of people have acid reflux without heartburn. How could that be? Dr. Jonathan E. Aviv, MD, FACS, a world-renowned physician, surgeon, educator, and inventor, and one of the leading authorities on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, cough, and voice and swallowing disorders, draws upon his decades of medical experience, both in and out of the operating room, to bring you the real story of acid reflux disease and its devastating impact on the general public. He explicitly and meticulously connects the extremely acidic, highly processed "food" Westerners eat, to acid reflux disease, and ultimately to esophageal cancer. This connection is a startling breakthrough and Dr. Aviv provides a solution with his Acid Watcher® Diet, a unique dietary program that combines low acid foods along with the three macro-nutrients with a high fiber component, to make delicious, healthy meals, designed using easy to follow recipes and meal plans, to keep your body acid free while maintaining excellent health for years to come. Killing Me Softly From Inside is not just another medical self-help book, it may very well be a prescription that can one day save your life.

Sick and Tired of Feeling Sick and Tired Living with Invisible Chronic Illness New Edition

Author: Paul J. Donoghue
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
ISBN: 9780393342833
Release Date: 2000-09-17
Genre: Health & Fitness

Unlike a leg in a cast, invisible chronic illness (ICI) has no observable symptoms. Consequently, people who suffer from chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and many other miseries often endure not only the ailment but dismissive and negative reactions from others. Since its first publication, Sick and Tired of Feeling Sick and Tired has offered hope and coping strategies to thousands of people who suffer from ICI. Paul Donoghue and Mary Siegel teach their readers how to rethink how they themselves view their illness and how to communicate with loved ones and doctors in a way that meets their needs. The authors' understanding makes readers feel they have been heard for the first time. For this edition, the authors include a new introduction drawing on the experiences of the many people who have responded to the book and to their lectures and television appearances. They expand the definition of ICI to include other ailments such as depression, addiction, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. They bring the resource material, including Web sites, up to the present, and they offer fresh insights on four topics that often emerge: guilt, how ICI affects the family, meaningfulness, and defining acceptance.
