Food and Digestive Disorders

The book, Food and Digestive Tract 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’ suffers of the “irritable bowel syndrome” Most members of this symptomatic group will have other dysfunction associated with and probably caused by their digestive problems.

Crohn’s 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 Crohn’s disease is that celiac patients are told to change their diet and improve when they remove gluten from their diet; Crohn’s 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 Crohn’s patient can be dangerous and requires a food holiday sometimes for several weeks. Food is replaced by Alpha ENF with optional additional nutrients.
