My sister saw it in a store here in alberta canada and said there was nothing added to it, but when I looked online it shows citric acid, and sodium benzoate. Also wondering if Exact brand sugar free liquid calcium with vitamin D3 natural blueberry flavour gluten free supplement is safe? Little worried due to the blueberry flavour and also lists citric acid in it. Need calcium and vitamin D supplement due to deficiency results.

I don’t see any mention of cinnamon or it’s use in any of the recipes. Is cinnamon ok to use in oatmeal? Also I read it’s ok to have one coffee a day, I drink green tea, is that ok at one cup per day? I did not see the Pink Lady variety of apples on the list, where do they fall on the ph scale?

But I’m a bit frustrated with it.

I am finding it hard to discern easily which recipes in the book are good for induction phase. Is there any place where they might be grouped as such, so I am not flipping back and forth to the list to check each ingredient?

Thanks for your help!

Comment on Think Heartburn Means Acid Reflux? Think Again! by Jay Lebowitz http://www.refluxcookbookblog.com/2012/01/09/think-heartburn-means-acid-reflux-think-again/#comment-34369 Fri, 10 Mar 2017 13:59:58 +0000 http://www.refluxcookbookblog.com/?p=1555#comment-34369 One additional symptom I don’t see on the list is shortness of breath…or the inability to take a deep breath. This, coupled with clearing the throat and trouble swallowing were brought on by Reflux, and resulted in Esophagitis. Following the Induction Diet seems to have helped, so I would encourage everyone to find the discipline to avoid ALL foods/drinks that contribute to reflux until the esophagus has a chance to heal.

I found it today after a discouraging dr visit. I have had an upper endoscopy and today an esophogram…..both show the esophagus spasming….I constantly feel like I have a lump in my throat. Sore throats in the morning, hard to swallow and constant air trapped causing hiccuping/ belching….over the counter mess don’t work and insurance denied the med my dr prescribed…so reading your book in the store gives me hope things can get better. Thank you😉

Comment on Whoa Baby! Even Some Baby Food is Acidic! by Patty http://www.refluxcookbookblog.com/2010/04/19/whoa-baby-even-some-baby-food-is-acidic/#comment-34253 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 20:46:57 +0000 http://www.refluxcookbookblog.com/?p=972#comment-34253 While this is interesting and informative, I would like to point out that acid reflux is not always caused by acid. Acid reflux for both myself and my husband was cured after one week on the Whole30. I am in no way affiliated with the Whole30, but I am a believer, since both our reflux, my migraines, his high blood pressure, and my chronic constipation, bloating and gas were all cured by eating whole foods, eliminating chemicals, sugar, legumes, dairy, alcohol, and grains. We now eat a paleo diet, which is similar, but allows a few more foods than the Whole30 allows. Our babies should be eating this way as well. Feed them real, whole foods, not refined food-like substances. Not preaching. Just hoping some others will find relief from digestive and other issues. Remember the wise words of Hippocrates: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Thanks for reading this. :)

I have just bought the book and find it very interesting and am about to start shopping!

1) I live in England Uk so can’t get all the suggested items/makes/brands etc. However, is it generally okay to assume the acid level will be about the same for fresh items here as in America, remembering that some veg will have been imported but most will have been grown here? The same also for flour etc?

2) Is it okay to add different things into the recipes so long as they are on the good list?

3) Most recipes seem to be for four or more people. I live on my own, how well do the recipes freeze if at all?

4) Some recipes may ask for say, half and apple. Rather than waste it is it okay the eat the rest with the meal etc?

5) Not all recipes look as if they will divide exactly. Apart from the extra calories, (I do have a good metabolism and generally eat a lot – weight is 9st 7lb. height 5′ 5”), is it okay to eat more than the suggested amount in the recipes? I do get very hungry and am concerned I’ll find myself buying a bag of chocolate brazil nuts!!!

6) Is the main concern with the acidic level and fat content rather than the overall calorie intake – generally speaking?

I do hope it is possible to answer these questions and I look forward to receiving the replies.

Many thanks

Daphne

I have been getting nowhere with what is safe to drink. All I see is water, camomile tea, but I can’t see myself just drinking those two things. Could someone give me a list of safe drinks. Also wondering if pear juice is safe? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m feeling very overwhelmed.

I have a few questions:
1. Cows’ milk affects me even if lactose free. Can I use either almond milk (unsweetened) or coconut (unsweetened) or both?
2. I’m looking for a cereal other than Quaker oats for breakfast. I’m using Trader Joe’s Shredded wheat bite size squares which has only Vit E for freshness added. Okay?
3. Stoneyfield Organic plain yogurt, can I use vanilla?
4. How about turkey bacon (no sulfates) if I press out any oils after slightly cooking?
