Quenching the Fire””New e-book Offers Real Hope for Those who Suffer from Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease””Acid Reflux Disease
After decades of being told by the experts that a diet high in fiber and low in fat is the key to robust good health, why is it that one in every five Americans is being treated for Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) or acid reflux disease? While the pharmaceutical companies profit off GERD sufferers, are their no natural, effective acid reflux remedies?
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 6, 2011
Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease, (GERD) ““ more commonly known as acid reflux disease ““ is still prevalent, despite decades-old orthodoxy that a high fiber, low fat diet is the key to robust good health. In the new eBook Quenching the Fire, a long-time GERD sufferer Kathryne Pirtle shares her proven acid reflux remedies.
Studies show more than 60 million Americans are currently being treated by their physicians for acid reflux disease. Last year there were 470,000 hospitalizations and 1.9 million visits to the emergency room because of acid reflux disease. What’s more, GERD is now being diagnosed in children, birth to four years.
Since 1999, the majority of Americans say they are now following the dietary guidelines recommended by the FDA, eating at least five servings of fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains each day. They are also following the advice of the medical community and eliminating traditional fats (like butter) and decreasing protein intake “” especially the favorite food-to-hate “” red meat.
What is it, then, that such a large percentage of the population is doing that would promote the massive increase in acid reflux disease? Should the entire nation succumb to popular medications that merely treat the symptoms but do nothing as acid reflux remedies?
In the new e-book on healing diet, Acid Reflux: A National Epidemic and Precursor to Chronic Illness, nutrition research specialist Kathryne Pirtle pulls back the curtain of misinformation to reveal the truth about why people are all chronically ill not only with GERD, but a variety of ailments including cancer, heart disease, allergies, dementia, even autism, ( http://tinyurl.com/37mf4us )
“Much of what we are told about good nutrition today is based on trends and faulty research funded by the Goliath factory farming industry,” says Pirtle. “For 25 years I suffered from debilitating pain and chronic illness. Over that time, I also suffered from symptoms of impaired digestion including persistent flatulence and at the age of 42, I was diagnosed with acid reflux that almost ended my career as a professional clarinetist. Even though I diligently followed popular health dictates as outlined in the traditional Food Pyramid and the resulting digestive illness and malnutrition nearly cost me my life,” says Pirtle.
If the Food Pyramid isn’t the answer, what is? In Acid Reflux: A National Epidemic and Precursor to Chronic Illness Pirtle explains how our bodies actually work to digest and assimilate the food we eat. Acid reflux remedies are to be found in changed diets.
“Before the 1950s most of our foods came from small family farms,” explains Kathryne. “These high quality foods were from animals eating their natural diets. Cows ate grass, chickens ate bugs and worms, and all fish were caught in the wild. These are nutrient-dense foods our bodies need for optimal health and digestion, but unfortunately, this is not what we find at our grocery stores today.”
“Americans should be the healthiest people in the world, but consider how many ads you see for drugs to address chronic health problems like acid reflux, gas, indigestion, constipation, and diarrhea. Pharmaceutical companies expect to earn a whopping $400,000,000 in annual sales from going over-the-counter with the “Ëœlittle purple pill,’” Pirtle continues. “These acid reflux remedies are nothing more than a slow death.”
“Current information on so-called healthy eating will not heal digestive disorders and will ultimately lead to nutrient deficiencies, illness, and even death,” Ms Pirtle concludes. “It behooves us to learn the difference.”
The principles of a truly healthy diet, using diet changes as acid reflux remedies, are but one aspect found in this exceptional e-book. Acid Reflux: A National Epidemic and Precursor to Chronic Illness also provides information on where to find nutrient-dense foods, shares delicious recipes and menu ideas, and makes the road to true healing from acid reflux disease informative and pleasant.
