Fatigue, Fibromyalgia Rescue
You are aching, tired, and discouraged. You feel injured and you assume
that your body is damaged and must rest and heal.
- You need to stop everything that you are doing, rest and recover.
- You need to permanently change your eating and drinking habits.
- You need a period of rehabilitation to rebuild physical fitness and
The Alpha Nutrition Program can help to resolve Chronic Fatigue,
Fibromyalgia and related disorders. The program is both a a diagnostic and a
treatment procedure. The first Phase of the program is an attempt to clear
symptoms. This is home science. You start with the hypothesis that your food
intake is causing or contributing to your illness and you do an experiment
to find out if it is true.
- You want to accomplish four important goals at the same time:
- Remove all the problems in your existing food supply
- Add all the nutrients your body needs
- Reintroduce the best, nourishing foods available and establish a new
- learn how to take better care of yourself
- Begin gentle exercise and slowly regain physical fitness.
Alpha ENF can be used to supply nutrients before, during and after
recovery. You will require increased nutrient intake to heal properly. Often
recovery involves a period of reduced food intake or fasting. Alpha ENF is
used to replace food. Alpha ENF supplies nutrients that are required
for recovery such as amino acids, B vitamins, vitamins D and B12 and
minerals such a calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc. Alpha ENF can be added
to fruit and vegetable juices to make complete meals of simple beverages.
The most definitive recovery method is to take a
food holiday. While fasting (removing the food problems) has helped many
people improve, the penalties of no nutrients coming in are often too great
for people who are seriously ill. We therefore recommend Alpha ENF use to
insure that a complete nutrient set is available. The formula solves a
number of problems more efficiently than any other method we know.
When you read Alpha Nutrition instructions, you will realize that there
are three tracks through the program - fast, medium and slow. You need to
decide the best track for you. To help you decide what strategy is best for
you we suggest rating the severity of your existing illness:

Think of yourself involved in process that you experience at different
degrees of intensity, at different stages of differentiation. Often there is
a "background noise" of milder but chronic symptoms with more severe
episodes intermittently. There is a correlation between intensity and
differentiation that should seem obvious - the milder manifestations of
hypersensitivity are associated with less differentiated disease. Milder
disease may progress over time and become better differentiated. Many years
may be spent in an adapted dysfunctional state (ADS) with stable symptoms or
smooth adaptation to a slowly decreasing level of function and/or a slowly
increasing disability. Symptoms of a mild ADS are often intermittent and
You continue to function at work and home but with increased suffering
and reduced productivity. The main problems are aching, stiffness, fatigue
reduced exertional tolerance. You are likely to have better days and worse
days, but as time goes on you have fewer days when you really feel well. You
have less energy and less tolerance for exercise and your physical fitness
deteriorates. You are likely to have digestive symptoms and the diagnosis is
often IBS. You may gain weight. You may have chronic rhinitis, sore throats,
headaches, generalized aching and stiffness, and sometimes-migratory joint
pains but the symptoms are mild and intermittent and you tend to ignore
them. Fatigue is associated with difficulty concentrating, mental
"fogginess", recent memory dropouts, and trouble recalling familiar
information. You may be tearful, irritable and experience sudden shifts of
mood. You are not happy, feel stressed and close relationships suffer.
Mild or intermittent aching, not associated with other symptoms is a
life-style problem until proven otherwise. Physical fitness is an issue and
many people with milder symptoms will do well with modest diet adjustments,
improved nutrient intake and an exercise program. Lack of physical fitness
is an issue and a renewed effort to exercise daily is a must.
Coffee is a common cause of pain, stiffness, fatigue and other symptoms.
The stimulation effects of caffeine are short-lived. The more you drink the
worse the problem gets - you run around hyper and anxious for a few hours
and then you crash. You sleep poorly and wake up groggy. You need more
coffee to get going. You are in an addictive cycle and although you can stay
there for many miserable years, Fibromyalgia may be your final reward. Tea
has similar properties but is milder and may be better tolerated if intake
is limited to 2 cups/day. We have seen addicted cola drinkers in a
predicament similar to coffee addicts.
If you are a smoker or live with a smoker, then smoke is the cause until
proven otherwise. If you smoke and drink more than 3 cups of coffee per day,
there isn't much hope for you until you quit. Cigarette smoke can give
carbon monoxide poisoning and hundreds of other toxins in the smoke can rob
you of your vitality in different ways. If you are a drinker -
alcoholic beverages everyday and sometimes to excess - then your problem
should be obvious. If you drink coffee, alcoholic beverage and smoke, then
there isn't much hope for you until you quit all of these addictions. You do
not have fibromyalgia syndrome - you have an addiction problem,
malnutrition, and self-inflicted chemical toxicity.
If your symptoms are mild or intermittent, you may do well with moderate
diet adjustments and an exercise program. We highly recommend doing the fast
track of Alpha Nutrition. You combine Phase 1 and 2 food lists to start and
use two or more servings of Alpha ENF or Alpha PMX every day to provide an
energy boost and to insure that all the nutrients are available. Many people
eat poorly because of a busy lifestyle and may have margin nutrient
deficiencies. Vitamin-mineral supplements may be helpful. Alpha ENF can
replace missing meals and provide an energy boost, especially at the low
points in the day.
Level 2: Losing Adaptation
If your symptoms become more intense and persistent, your adaptations
fail progressively and you lose ground. This middle zone of progressive
dysfunction involves a lot of physical suffering and mental anguish. You
have reduced social and recreational activities in favor of resting at home.
You have reduced work; taken more sick leave and you are worried about your
employability in the long term. You have sought medical help and have been
trying remedies. You are likely to become frustrated and confused by
conflicting ideas and treatment options. You are most constrained by three
symptoms - fatigue, cognitive dysfunction and chronic pain.
As the illness intensifies, you are likely to shop around for help and
will "try anything" that might help. You spend more time, money and energy
seeking solutions. You may join a support group and adopt a diagnostic and
ideological preference for explaining your illness. You may have tried diet
revision but have pursued one of the many wrong approaches and have
experienced partial or short-lived relief. You may believe that you have one
of many chronic infections. You may have tried or are still taking one of
many medications and/or herbal medicines. You may have recognized some food
intolerance but you have food cravings and tend to eat compulsively at
times. You may know that after some food binges, you fell much worse, but
you are confused about what you should eat. You may be in denial. You may
not recognize that eating and drinking behaviors are a problem. The people
close to you may also be in denial.
The Alpha Solution
You will do better if you retreat to Phase 1 foods on the Alpha Nutrition
Program and replace one or two meals per day with Alpha ENF. This is the
medium track on Alpha Nutrition- rehearsal mode. You must make a definitive
break with the eating and drinking patterns that are making you feel ill. If
you find that you cannot switch to phase 1 foods exclusively, especially if
you have food cravings and tend to eat compulsively, you need a complete
food holiday. You order more Alpha ENF, plan a health-seeking retreat and
spend 10 days on Alpha ENF alone.
You may follow the medium-path (as above) while you prepare to go on the
complete food holiday, but do not compromise your chance of complete symptom
remission - go on Alpha ENF for at least 10 days and then follow the slow
track plan of food reintroduction. You will become an infant for a while.
You will need tender loving care and baby food. You will get better if you
do all the right things. You will crash again if you fall off the wagon and
eat all the wrong foods
