Food & ImmunologyWhatever comes in must go out. Our urinary system has the job of excreting unwanted, hazardous materials. If problems arise in this system, why not attempt to trace the problems back to body input? A variety of common problems in this system can be related to food ingredients and food allergy.
The kidneys present a large filtering surface to blood contents and are vulnerable to damage by circulating immune complexes (CIC). These complexes may increase when the digestive tract leaks large food molecules (mostly proteins) into the blood.
Bladder and urethral symptoms, especially urgency and frequency of and burning on urination, are common symptoms of food allergy. The first diagnosis to be considered may be infection, but urine cultures will not show growth of bacteria. Antibiotics may be prescribed, but the problem is self-limiting and clears by itself without antibiotics unless the causative food intake continues unabated.
Diet Revision should be considered when symptoms, suggestive of cystitis and nephritis and not explained by laboratory-documented infections. Some patients with chronic "interstitial cystitis" improve after food intake is replaced by an ENF. Most patients with this disease can safely try Alpha ENF for up to 10 days to discover if their symptoms improve. If the food holiday experiment is successful food is reintroduce carefully following the instructions in the Alpha Nutrition Program.
Alpha ENF: Often, full recovery involves a food holiday. Alpha ENF can be used as a completely absorbed, fully nourishing food-replacement. Alpha ENF can be used to supply nutrients that may be in short supply - such as amino acids, B vitamins, vitamins D and B12 and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc.
We think that proteins in general are high-risk food components in kidney disease and we are concerned about the adverse effects of hydrolyzed proteins. Gluten, the proteins in wheat, rye, barley and oats are definitively excluded but other high risk proteins are albumin from eggs and milk, globulin and casein from milk, muscle proteins from meat, and soy proteins. When you begin diet revision you avoid eating all these proteins. Their use is postponed until full recovery has been achieved.. Proteins from vegetable sources appear to be better tolerated. Meal replacement formulas made with milk, egg or soy proteins should be avoided. All body-building protein powders are avoided.
Alpha ENF avoids all the protein problems by supplying the nutrient requirement with pure amino acids. The amino acid content of Alpha ENF will supplement or replace dietary protein. Alpha ENF can be added to fruit and vegetable juices to make complete meals of simple beverages and can be added to soups, or puddings after they have been cooked to increase their nutritive value. The most definitive rest and recovery technique is to take a Food Holiday.
