Chef Spike Mendelsohn Dishes on How to Turn Down the Heat on Acid Reflux Disease
Date:5/2/2012

DEERFIELD, Ill., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn knows all too well the effects of a busy and hectic lifestyle – especially for a person with acid reflux disease (ARD). But while he's used to firing up the grill, Chef Spike has also had to learn how to turn down the heat on his heartburn associated with ARD. To raise awareness and understanding about the importance of managing heartburn symptoms of ARD, including through lifestyle modifications, Chef Spike is cooking up an exciting recipe with Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. (Takeda), makers of the prescription medication DEXILANT (dexlansoprazole), through the educational campaign and contest, Don't Let it Burn (DontLetitBurn.com).

"Food is not only one of my passions, it's my life and as a chef, I know all about long days and nights. And, for me, certain foods and stress can aggravate my symptoms," Chef Spike shared. "But as the saying goes, if I can't take the heat, I should get out of the kitchen. So I've worked with my doctor to come up with a treatment plan that, for me, includes taking DEXILANT, which helps me to manage my acid reflux disease."

Also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), acid reflux disease is often a chronic condition affecting nearly 19 million Americans, and is characterized by persistent heartburn that occurs two or more days a week despite treatment and diet changes. Acid reflux disease should be managed with lifestyle changes and by working closely with a physician, not only to help relieve the uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms, but to heal damage (erosions) in the esophagus, a condition known as erosive esophagitis (EE).

"In the 40 years I've spent in clinical practice, I have seen many patients like Spike who have busy schedules, and who are concerned with their condition. For many people, symptoms can recur despite adjustments made to one's diet, lifestyle and treatment,"
