Dr. Aviv’s Acid Watcher Smoothie
Dr. Jonathan E. Aviv, MD, FACS is a member of the evamor “Know. Better. Brigade” because he’s an innovator in healthcare and a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease and its complications. Dr. Aviv is a renowned physician, surgeon, educator, and inventor, and one of the leading authorities on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, cough, and voice and swallowing disorders. He developed the new low acid, high fiber, nutritionally-balanced diet called the Acid Watcher® diet, designed to ultimately help prevent this disease. Dr. Aviv designed this diet to encourage people to use “food as medicine” to help heal the body from years of acid damage.
The modern diet is loaded with excess dietary acid, which can trigger burning sensations in the aerodigestive tract. To learn more about the Acid Watcher diet, visit Dr. Aviv’s website.
