Pain describes unpleasant experiences that everyone would rather avoid. Pain demands attention and pain relief is a principle goal of medical therapeutics. Pain comes in different shapes and sizes and is not easy to define. No human escapes pain experiences and chronic pain is now the most prevalent human symptoms. Pain relievers are not always effective and usually have negative effects.
Norman J. Marcus, M.D. stated that "we need to recognize that pain is an epidemic of sorts and that we are not adequately handling patients with pain." Marcus estimated that headaches disrupt productivity in 40-million Americans each year, while back pain interferes with work in 36-million people, muscle pain affects 24-million people and neck pain affects 20-million people. For persistent pain in general, the cost estimates are around $100 billion per year. The cost of back pain is estimated to be $16-20 billion per year. Marcus stated: "Back pain is a problem of fitness…if we made weight loss and exercise a national priority, the result would filter down in tremendous savings for our beleaguered health care system…Even something as simple as walking the equivalent of two miles per day could reduce utilization and cost of medical services."
Musculoskeletal and rheumatic complaints account for approximately 15% of the patients seen by primary care physicians. These complaints include muscle pain and weakness, regional pain syndrome such as back or neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and lupus erythematosus. More aggressive muscle pain associated with muscle inflammatory activity is less common and occurs in patients with the autoimmune disorders, polymyalgia rheumatica and polymyositis.
Generalized Aching and Stiffness
In many patients, pain, stiffness and loss of function occur without demonstrable inflammation. Their diagnoses include chronic low-back pain, fibrositis, fibromyalgia, fibromyositis, myofacial pain syndrome and idiopathic myalgia. The pain seems to originate from muscles and connective tissue with little or no evidence of tissue changes. Blood tests are normal, even when the disability from pain, weakness, and stiffness is severe. Aching is often associated with fatigue and other symptoms. Gastrointestinal Tract symptoms are especially common. Patients with these diagnoses are usually offered drugs by their physicians. Pain-relievers, NSAIDs, muscle relaxants, tranquilizers and anti-depressant drugs are all popular, but none are particularly helpful
The Alpha Nutrition Program is designed to discover a new diet that reduces immediate symptoms and reduces the long-term risk of progressive disease. The first Phase of the Alpha Nutrition Program is an attempt to clear symptoms. This is home science. You want to accomplish four important goals at the same time:
We recognize three basic truths
First: Most of the diseases that lead to premature disability and death are caused by eating too much of the wrong food and exercising too little.
The second truth is that normal is not normal: The foods implicated in causing illnesses are common foods that almost everyone eats. To become a healthy person you have to redefine normal food.
The third truth is that each person is responsible for their own health. Rather than waiting for the next “miracle cure” for high blood pressure or diabetes 2, for example, responsible people get busy and fix the problem for themselves.
