It’s holiday season and for those with acid reflux a cookbook can be a great gift. Here are three of my favorites, for anyone who wants to banish the burn.

This acid reflux-friendly book contains over 100 recipes that are not only low on acid but are also low fat — a huge help to those with acid reflux who are also trying to lose weight. The images in the book are gorgeous and make you want to jump right in and start cooking.

Dropping Acid

By Jamie A. Koufman, Jordan Stern, Mark Michel Bauer

Dropping Acid is a New York Times best-seller, and it's no wonder. Its easy to understand descriptions, by Dr Koufman, of how acid in our foods plays a role in the disease make you excited to get started cooking your way to health. The recipes use healthy doses of fats to keep the flavor of the food without slowing down the gut with too much fat. Plus, the recipes are just plain delicious.

Chronic Heartburn: Managing Acid Reflux and GERD Through Understanding Lifestyle and Diet

By Barbara E. Wendland and Lisa Marie Ruffolo

This is a real cookbook, with more than 100 recipes, but it also contains wonderful descriptions of symptoms, medical facts, coping mechanisms, drug therapy, endoscopy, and surgery. So it’s a great combo of the medical, nutrition facts and recipes you need to keep your heartburn at bay.
