Dr. Zalvan has published and lectured nationally and internationally on these topics.

Dr. Zalvan has a special focus on treating reflux disease with a mostly plant-based, Mediterranean-style diet with publications in JAMA and Laryngoscope highlighting the improvement in results over medications with the additional health benefits of preventing and reversing many chronic diseases.
