The book, Digestive Disorders, is dedicated to the
intelligent reader who wants to understand and manage his or her digestive tract
disorder. The book covers a range of problems from milder, but unpleasant
symptoms that recur over many years to serious, life-threatening diseases. The
book is available in printed and eBook editions and interfaces with the Alpha
Nutrition Program, a standard method of diet revision
From the Introduction
There are at least 100 million people in the USA and Canada that have
recurrent, long-term gastrointestinal symptoms. Abdominal pain, distension with
excess gas, constipation and diarrhea are the four prominent symptoms. Most
members of this large group will self-medicate and suffer long-term. Some will
receive the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome along with inappropriate
advice and medication with limited efficacy. Some will emerge from this large
symptomatic group with well defined disease. The rest of the symptomatic
population will remain by default sufferers of the irritable bowel syndrome.
Most members of this symptomatic group will have other dysfunction associated
with and probably caused by their digestive problems.
Crohns disease, Celiac disease and Ulcerative Colitis are three of the more
serious diagnoses. These digestive tract diseases are immune-mediated, with
increased permeability of the digestive tract, and are associated with a long
list of whole body, immune-mediated diseases. Patients with these conditions are
often symptomatic for many years before the diagnosis is made. The main
difference between Celiac and Crohns disease is that celiac patients are told to
change their diet and improve when they remove gluten from their diet; Crohns
patients are not told to change their diet and often follow a deteriorating path
of chronic disease, some with episodic crises that require surgery, prolonged
hospitalization and permanent disability.
We believe these conditions are related in terms of disease causing
mechanisms and recommend that all groups of patients follow a similar protocol
of diet revision. The main difference is that acute inflammation of the bowel
wall in a Crohns patient can be dangerous and requires a food holiday sometimes
for several weeks. Food is replaced by Alpha ENF with optional additional
