Acid Reflux - Not For Adults Only



LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW
And that's not a good thing. Recently on Food Talk for Health, Tonia talked with Dr. Jamie Kaufman, Founder and the Director of the Voice Institute of New York, and author of several books on the topic of Acid Reflux Disease. Dr. Kaufman gave some surprising information about the illness, not the lease of which is that children can actually acquire it. In fact the title of her latest book is the self-explanatory Acid Reflux in Children. Dr. Kaufman told Tonia symptoms can include poor sleeping, noisy breathing, allergies and ear infections. To make matters even more scary, Dr. Kaufman says the actual diagnosis of Acid Reflux is something that pediatricians can't easily detect. Learn more about how you can protect your children by picking up the book Acid Reflux in Children.



DR. JAMIE KOUFMAN has lectured nationally and internationally and is one of the world’s leading authorities on reflux. For almost three decades, her pioneering research has focused on acid reflux as it affects the voice and airway (breathing passages). She coined the medical terms “silent reflux” and “laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR),” "airway reflux," and "respiratory reflux," to describe reflux that involves the larynx (voice box), throat, and breathing passages.

Dr. Koufman is the Founder and Director of the Voice Institute of New York, one of the premier comprehensive voice treatment and reflux centers in the United States. Dr. Koufman is Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology at the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary of the Mt. Sinai Health System, and she has been listed among the Top Doctors in America every year since 1994. She has written four book regarding the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux, including the New York Times best-seller, Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure and her newest book, Acid Reflux in Children: How Healthy Eating Can Fix Your Child’s Asthma, Allergies, Obesity, Nasal Congestion, Cough & Croup.
