Symptom Triggers & TimingThe Alpha Nutrition Program provides information about the origin of common symptoms. The basic idea is to clear symptoms first, establish normal functioning, and then track and solve any returning symptoms.; Since you are assuming that foods are responsible for recurrent symptoms, you focus on three aspects of the suspect foods:
1 Identity: you try to identify which food has caused your distress. If you follow the Alpha Nutrition Program slower tracks, and carefully introduce single foods, you will have less doubt about which food caused the problem - you may have to consider the next two factors before you are certain. If you introduce several foods quickly, eat in restaurants, or eat foods outside of the Alpha Nutrition Program you will not know what is causing the symptoms.
2 Dose: the amount of food eaten is often a deciding factor. You may start eating more chicken, for example as you are getting better: 3 ounce servings felt OK, and now you are eating 6 to 8 ounce portions and you are not feeling so well.
3 Frequency: the frequency of eating the food is also a dose-related factor. Some foods are only acceptable if you eat them in smaller quantities infrequently.
A simple classification of food allergy symptom patterns is based on the
timing of symptoms
Symptoms like headache, drowsiness, dizziness, cognitive dysfunction, and aching tend to arrive 1-8 hours after eating, and may be classed intermediate.
Delayed symptoms emerge in 8-72 hours after eating, or may follow a dose/frequency dependent pattern, requiring several feedings over a period of days to weeks to be fully revealed.
The onset of symptoms tends to vary with the nature and amount of the food, digestion and absorption delays and the type of immune response, but other "host variables" contribute to complexity.;
Disturbances pass through us like waves. If you are successful in your food introduction experiments, you will feel each symptom wave that passes through you. You will notice a beginning, a middle, and an end.; A migraine headache, for example, may start 3 hours after drinking red wine. During the initial delay there may be a few minor symptoms to mark the onset, and then suddenly a major surge of pain, nausea, dizziness begins. This is the attack. Once the pain is established, it sustains for a variable period of hours to days, possibly surging a few time before it begins to resolve. Finally (if you have not ingested any new problems) the headache goes away and you are back to the starting state, feeling well again.;
We have observed a great variety of symptom-recurrence wave-forms among individuals and have also noted that each person will experience a variety of wave-forms even with the same trigger food. For several days, for example, one reaction will modify any subsequent reaction; you get overlapping wave forms that may add, subtract, or interfere. This variability in symptom production confuses anyone who thinks the body is a simple, linear machine!
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.
