Why Stomach Acid is Good For You: Natural Relief from Heartburn, Indigestion, Reflux, GERD. . - Book Notice - book review

Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients,  June, 2002  by Beatrice Trum Hunter

Why Stomach Acid is Good For You, natural relief from heartburn, indigestion, reflux, GERD.

by Jonathan V Wright, MD and Lane Lenard, PhD

M. Evans & Company, 216 E. 49th Street, New York, New York 10017 USA

Quality paperback, 208 pages, $15.95

Judging from the prevalence of ads in the media for over-the-counter relief for heartburn, indigestion, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), many Americans suffer from these ailments. Gallup pollsters report that 44% of our population suffer from these conditions at least once a month.

In Why Stomach Acid is Good For You, the authors state that commonly used palliative over-the-counter medications for these problems may bring temporary relief, but do not improve or reverse the conditions. Research shows that when acid indigestion erupts, it may reflect too little rather than too much stomach acidity. The authors of Why Stomach Acid is Good For You suggest natural treatments and nutritional supplements that help create the acid needed to help reduce and clear up the digestive problems.

The book dispels some common myths. For example, contrary to popular belief, stomach acid secretion tends to decline with age, although heartburn and GERD tend to increase with age. Hence, the stomach acid cannot be held responsible for these digestive problems.

An intriguing relationship is low stomach acidity and depression. How can they possibly be linked? Some depressions result from a neurotransmitter deficiency, which may be linked to low stomach acidity. Therefore, these cases of depression may be alleviated by correcting faulty digestion.

Another health problem linked to low stomach acidity is acne rosacea -- a skin condition in which the face is abnormally red, especially around the area of the nose. This unfortunate blemish is related to very poor stomach function. The authors have found that acne rosacea responds favorably to supplements such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, B vitamins, and hydrochloric acid-pepsin tablets.

Why Stomach Acid is Good for You helps the reader understand how the body benefits from stomach acid. Not only does the acid aid digestion, but it helps the body absorb many vital nutrients, digest protein by stimulating pepsin production, and helps prevent bacterial and fungal overgrowth. Stomach acidity helps maintain normal health in the gastrointestinal tract. The book is a "must read" for anyone suffering digestive upsets, and for all health professionals dealing with patients who present such problems.

Dr. Wright needs no introduction to readers of the Townsend Letter. His helpful writings are printed frequently in this publication. Among his previous books are Dr. Wright's Book of Natural Therapies, and Dr. Wright's Guide to Healing and Nutrition. Dr. Wright's co-author, Lane Lenard, PhD is a writer and editor.
