Children can have a long list or problems that require well-informed management and effective remedies. Here we emphasize the role of food
allergy in causing common problems. The remedy is diet revision following a
rational, consistent plan. We developed the Alpha Nutrition program to guide
diet revision and to inform parents and other caregivers about the correct food
choices and proper nutrition.
Alpha Nutrition Program
The Alpha Nutrition Program is a standard method of diet revision that
includes healthy foods, popular all over the world and, at the same time,
excludes other foods that you would consider normal. But, normal foods are not
normal when your child is ill or behaving badly.
The program is based on removing the cause of illness by correcting a faulty
food supply. The Alpha Nutrition Program is standard method of diet revision.
The program was developed as practical medical management of food-related
illnesses. The Alpha Nutrition Program works well for children, but change is
difficult. Each child has individual needs. Your task is to find the best-fit
food choices for your child's special biological requirements.
;Mother is often the leader when a child needs help. You cannot
isolate one person in a family and change their diet while everyone else
continues to eat all the old foods. The whole family has to be involved to help
one child. When a family does Alpha Nutrition together, everyone tends to
benefit. If you have identified a need for change, you may still have doubts
about what you should do. You may first try minor changes or look for easier
solutions than complete diet revision. You probably have discussed your options
with family, friends, and professional advisers and have collected different,
perhaps contradictory opinions.
The Alpha Nutrition Program emphasized foods that are nourishing and are
associated with the prevention and treatment of many common food-related diseases at every
age. Since there is no easy testing method that reliably identify specific
foods that cause illnesses, we cannot specify a short list of foods to avoid and
assume that every other food will function properly. You have to build a new
diet for your children starting with the best food choices for a healthy, long
The potential for change in children's physical and mental state is great.
But, any change is disruptive. You should, therefore, expect some difficulties
in changing your children's' food choices, and prepare to cope with the problems
you will encounter.
Family participation is important to children, who have difficulty if their
food is different from everyone else. With food problems, several family members
are often afflicted, but perhaps not to the same degree. If the whole family
participates, other family members will benefit, even when no benefit is
anticipated. Explain your child's new needs to family and friends to avoid conflict,
embarrassment, and the inevitable "good advice", which is seldom helpful
Emphasize the positive. Reassure your child that diet revision will help them.
