A basic intention of health-seeking programs is that you learn to do a better
job of self-regulating. Self-regulation implies control. However, where does the
control come from? Related questions are:
Who decides what to do?
Do you need permission to make important changes?
Can you make your own decisions?
The Alpha Nutrition Program advocates self-directed, self-management as a
desirable goal. The program teaches self-management skills. You should answer
the opening questions when you contemplate starting the program; ask yourself -
can I simply decide and do it? Who is in control?
Some people live well-organized lives with traditional lifestyle eating
habits and operate from an internal locus of control that gives them an enviable
ability to self-manage. If you have a well-developed center, you have an easier
time developing new patterns, once you accept that it is necessary and desirable
to change. You can plan an orderly transition from old to new. People with a
strong internal locus of control are more skilled at collecting and evaluating
information. They accept professional advice as information, not as parental
authority. They tend to feel more confident making their own decisions.
The Alpha Nutrition Program is a sequential process divided into three
phases. You begin in Phase 1 with an attempt to resolve existing health
problems. You stop whatever you are doing, give your body a rest and have a
fresh start. You want to re-design your food supply to match the current needs
of your body. You retreat to a simple diet of basic foods or take a food holiday
supplying complete nutrition with Alpha ENF.
The idea is to sequence food changes so that your body has time to clear
existing problems, adapt to a new order of food intake, and heal old wounds.
When you stop eating problem foods, you tend to get better. We speak about
clearing when symptoms disappear. Very often, a small set of staple foods will
be successful at resolving a long-standing health problem. Symptoms subside as
long as you remain on the simplest set of foods, and symptoms recur when you
beyond their "core" food list.
Whenever recovering patients got into trouble with new food introductions or
"falling-off-the-wagon," a return to their "core" foods would get them better
