I just discovered that Dr. Norm Robillard’s excellent book on the causes and treatment of heartburn, Fast Tract Digestion Heartburn, is available free on Kindle. I don’t know how long it will remain free, but I wanted to get this post up and out so that anyone who has heartburn or GERD can grab a free copy.
I briefly contemplated doing an in-depth review of this book replete with multiple quotes and my digressions, but since I don’t know how long the book is going to remain free on Kindle, I figured it would be best if I just got the post up quickly. In short, the book discusses how small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) causes most cases of heartburn. SIBO can be successfully treated in most cases with a low-carbohydrate diet. Dr. Robillard’s book discusses treatment, including some not-so-low-carb options. In lieu of my review, here is Dr. Robillard’s website, which provides more info. I highly recommend this book to anyone with heartburn.
Disclosure: Dr. Robillard is a friend of mine. We had a few discussions during his writing of the book, and I am mentioned in the acknowledgements.
Note: Just heard from Dr. Robillard. The book will be free through Jan 1, 2013. So don’t dilly dally. Get your copy now.
And Happy New Year everyone!
