About Jessica Madge

I enjoy writing about how the body works. My aim is to make the science behind health and illness accessible to the general reader. I like to shed light, bust myths and raise questions.
My first book, Your Intelligent Immune System, explains how the immune system works in sickness and health and how to get the best out of it.
My second is Reflux and Heartburn, The New Self Help. This is a fresh look at a common health problem. Traditional and new-age remedies for reflux and heartburn either involve consuming acid- neutralizing remedies or making unwelcome changes to your diet. However the key cause of reflux is a mechanical failure at the top of the stomach, not a chemical imbalance. My book explains the problem and suggests a range of physical, rather than chemical solutions.
I have B.Sc and M.Phil. degrees from the University of Wales and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Southampton. I have worked as a science teacher in secondary schools and as a staff trainer in both the National Health Service and the water industry. I have also been an antenatal teacher, a mother, a school governor and teacher of yoga.
