Dr. Koufman changed the face of otolaryngology with the laryngopharyngeal reflux paradigm in the 1990s. Millions of patients around the world have already benefited from the research and treatments that followed this seminal work.

Dr. Jamie saved my life. This may sound dramatic, but it is exactly how I feel. When you are gasping for breath, unable to speak, sleep, or do much, your life takes on a whole different meaning. And all that changed thanks to Dr. Jamie.

Suze Orman - Host of The Suze Orman Show

Dr. Koufman’s Acid Reflux Diet is two great books in one. First, it provides an informative, iconoclastic, and bluntly honest scientific viewpoint and the opportunity for a cure for millions of people suffering from misdiagnosed respiratory diseases. Second, as a cook-book, it offers terrific reflux-friendly recipes that are also vegan and gluten-free.

Dr. Edythe Heus - Founder and Director, Revolution in Motion

I am so excited to find a book that truthfully addresses the connection between nutrition and an active lifestyle which leads to optimal health. This book is easy to read, giving clear medical explanations for why acid, sugar, and fat are detrimental to kids. Our family has learned important lessons from it and I know yours will, too.
