The Alpha Nutrition Program

The Alpha Nutrition Program is a set of instructions and nutrient tools designed to resolve disease through diet revision. The program is nutritional therapy, a personal technology of health restoration and health maintenance. The development of the Alpha Nutrition Program began many years ago with observation that some food-selection patterns are associated with dysfunction and disease. In one person, for example, the daily ingestion of multigrain bread, milk, cheese, bran muffins, beef, coffee, orange juice, and wine is associated with chronic fatigue, sleepiness after eating, nose congestion, flushing, headaches, generalized aching, stiffness, and episodes of unexplained depression. When the food list is changed to rice, vegetables, chicken, peaches, and pears, the symptoms disappear and the person reports increased energy and a renewed sense of well-being. Similar observations are reported in a large sample of people of all ages. A variety of other dysfunctional patterns are found to improve with proper diet revision.

We reasoned that everyone probably has a small set of best-fit foods that would allow them to feel and function optimally. The first goal of therapy should then be to identify the simplest set of best foods for each person. The core-concept further developed as we kept score of adverse food reactions reported by patients and found that rice and common, cooked vegetables were among the best tolerated and most acceptable of all food choices.

The Alpha Nutrition Program incorporates the use of three nutrient formulas, Alpha ENF is the principle meal replacement formula. Alpha PMX is a fat free version of Alpha ENF can be used as food replacement. Alpha DMX is used instead of of Alpha ENF for diabetes 2 and whenever reduced caloric intake is desirable.

Many terms have been used to describe solving health problems with diet revision: nutritional therapy, natural healing, diet therapy, cleansing, detoxification, fasting, and healing foods. The Alpha Nutrition Program incorporates all the best ideas in diet design and avoids the wrong ideas. The Alpha Nutrition Program incorporates the best features of popular approaches to diet design such as the Mediterranean Diet, DASH Diet, Heart Smart Diet, Pritikin Diet, Macrobiotic Diet. In addition the Alpha Program understands food allergy, an important cause of disease that is ignored in other diet designs.

The development of the Alpha Nutrition Program, has been a collective effort and has evolved over the past 25 years. Dr. Gislason accumulated experience with over 10 thousand patients. His reputation for compassionate care and getting good results brought patients from far and near, seeking his help. His knowledge and wisdom has been incorporated into the Alpha Nutrition Program and all the other books in the Alpha Education Series that connect the program to specific diseases that benefit from diet revision.

Historic Note: Dr Gislason's first books referred to the “Core Program”. The original Core Program was first published in 1983 and has undergone continuous development since then. Versions of the Core Program were published as Nutritional Therapy in 1989 and Nutritional Therapy Vol. 2 in 1992 by Dr. Gislason. In June 1998, the Alpha Nutrition Program incorporated and replaced the Core Program. The ENFood family of elemental nutrient formulas were first introduced in 1991 and were renamed as part of Alpha Nutrition in 1998. ENFood C1 became Alpha ENF and ENFood PMX or NutraBalance is now Alpha PMX.
