This text comprehensively reviews the current state of the art in Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) together with a comprehensive explanation and description of the known gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) literature. With chapters written by experts from around the world, this text aims to deliver what is current in reflux recognition, diagnosis, reflux related complications, and the various treatment modalities. This is the first textbook to combine the most up to date knowledge of both LPR and GERD meant for both specialties and the general medicine population. Completely unique to the reflux literature is a section detailing the substantial benefits of a mostly plant based, Mediterranean style diet in the treatment of reflux disease. Encouraging patients to read and learn about diet and health is likely the most important step in improving their disease.
