Those who receive the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome will often receive inadequate or inappropriate advice and will be prescribed medication with limited efficacy. Very few long suffering patients will receive adequate instruction in effective diet revision. Crohn’s, Celiac disease and Ulcerative Colitis are three of the more serious diagnoses that imply a long-term tendency to digestive tract disease. These digestive tract diseases are immune-mediated, with increased permeability of the digestive tract, and are associated with a long list of whole body, immune-mediated diseases. Patients with these conditions are often symptomatic for many years before the diagnosis is made.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
What is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is an intestinal disorder that causes:
  • crampy pain
  • gassiness
  • bloating
  • changes in bowel habits
IBS has inaccurately been called by many names:
  • colitis
  • mucous colitis
  • spastic colon
  • spastic bowel
  • functional bowel disease
IBS is called a functional disorder because there is no sign of disease when the colon is examined. Because physicians have been unable to find an organic cause, IBS often has been thought to be caused by emotional conflict or stress. While stress may worsen IBS symptoms, research suggests that other factors also are important. IBS often causes a great deal of discomfort and distress, but it is not believed to:
  • cause permanent harm to the intestines.
  • lead to intestinal bleeding of the bowel.
  • lead to a serious disease such as cancer.

Stomach and Duodenal Ulcers (Peptic Ulcers)
What is a stomach or duodenal ulcer?
An ulcer is an open sore, or lesion, usually found on the skin or mucous membrane areas of the body. An ulcer in the lining of the stomach or duodenum, where hydrochloric acid and pepsin are present, is referred to as a peptic ulcer
  • When the ulcer is in the stomach, it is called a gastric ulcer
  • When the ulcer is in the duodenum, it is called a duodenal ulcer
What causes gastric and duodenal ulcers?
In the past it was believed lifestyle factors, such as stress and diet caused ulcers. Later, researchers determined that stomach acids hydrochloric acid and pepsin contributed to ulcer formation. Today, research shows that most ulcers (80 percent of gastric ulcers and 90 percent of duodenal ulcers) develop as a result of infection with a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).

There are two initial steps to solving a digestive problem 1 You stop ingesting the problem foods and beverages. 2 You ingest basic foods and pure nutrients until you clear symptoms and recover normal digestive function. Recovery involves a period of reduced food intake or food holiday. Alpha ENF can be used as a easily absorbed, fully nourishing food-replacement that requires little or no digestion. A 7-10 day Alpha ENF holiday is usually enough time for the problems in the digestive tract to settle down. Longer food holidays are required for inflammatory bowel disease. Alpha ENF supplies extra nutrients that may be in short supply - such as amino acids, B vitamins, vitamins D and B and minerals such a calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc.

They affect 50 percent of people over age 50. Diets low in fiber are thought to be a major cause. Straining at defecation to evacuate hard stools also seems to promote their development. A high-fiber diet and prompt, strain-free defecation help relieve mildly symptomatic hemorrhoids. Local swelling and pain can be decreased with local anesthetic creams, lotions, or suppositories; astringents; or cold compresses. For those with severe symptoms, rubber band ligation, cryosurgery, injection therapy, or surgical removal may be needed. Constipation is the term given for infrequent or difficult evacuation of small, hard stools, accompanied by mild abdominal discomfort. When the condition is chronic, it may include nausea, stomach rumbling, appetite loss, and malaise. Constipation is a common condition that affects mostly the very young and the aged. While the number of bowel movements is variable in the general population, a normal individual should have at least three per week, or, ideally, one daily.

Ulcerative colitis is an inflammation of the colon that produces ulceration of the inside wall. Its primary symptom is bloody, chronic diarrhea, often containing pus and mucus, and associated with abdominal pain and weight and appetite loss. When confined to the rectum, it's referred to as ulcerative proctitis. Though there is no known cause of ulcerative colitis, it does tend to run in families and is more common in Jews and caucasians than other ethnic or racial groups. Sometimes known as ileitis, Crohn's disease is an inflammation of the small and/or large intestine, with accompanying pain, cramping, tenderness, gas, fever, nausea, and diarrhea. Though usually mild, bleeding may occur and may sometimes be massive.

N-Z Each year, 62 million Americans are diagnosed with digestive disorders, ranging from the occasional upset stomach to the more life-threatening colorectal cancer. They encompass disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Consider the following:
  • Sixty to 70 million persons are affected by all digestive diseases.
  • Thirteen percent of all hospitalizations are for digestive disorders.
  • Digestive disorders account for 50 million physician office visits per year.
  • Digestive disorders cost $107 billion - $87 billion in direct medical costs and $20 billion in indirect costs each year.
Most digestive diseases are very complex, with subtle symptoms, and the causes of many remain unknown. They may be inherited, or develop from multiple factors such as stress, fatigue, diet, or smoking. Abusing alcohol imposes the greatest risk for digestive diseases. Reaching a diagnosis requires a thorough and accurate medical history and physical examination. Some patients may need to undergo more extensive diagnostic evaluations, including laboratory tests, endoscopic procedures, and imaging techniques. Physicians who specialize in the treatment of digestive problems are called gastroenterologists.

  • colic constipation diarrhea.
All three may occur together. All three are likely to be food-related. The "irritable" or reactive bowel syndrome begins in infancy with colic, bloating, regurgitation, vomiting and diarrhea. Colic in infancy is abdominal pain with the attendant emotional distress of the infant and his parents. Jenkins et al demonstrated that food allergy is a major cause of infantile colitis. Gastrointestinal symptoms are often associated with:
  • rhinorrhea (nose congestion, runny nose)

Scientists can see right inside the intestines using fibre optics. Thousands of flexible optical fibres are bundled together in a tube. They carry an image back from inside the patient to the eyepie. The doctor can see directly into the patients guts. Sigmoidoscopy
To examine the large intestine (the lower part of the colon called the sigmoid), doctors perform a sigmoidoscopy. The sigmoidoscope is similar to an endoscope but it is inserted through the anus and passes up into the large intestine. The doctor can take samples of the lining ( biopsies ) to check for infection or cancerous growths.

Dealing with Digestive Disorders The fact that bad food can cause an upset stomach is not exactly a news flash. But the way in which diet affects a chronic digestive problem is a bit more of a mystery. Scientists are still at work unraveling many of the connections. However, it's quite clear that the disorders discussed in this chapter are profoundly influenced by what you do or do not eat, or can be helped by adding or eliminating certain types of food. Changing your diet as a first step in therapy is usually a wise choice and is certainly more cost effective than waiting until the problem puts you in the hospital. In the United States alone, 10 million people each year are hospitalized with digestive disorders, and some $107 billion is spent on direct and indirect medical costs. Fortunately, drugs and surgery are available for severe conditions. And for some problems, seeing your doctor is the best course from the start. Most gastric ulcers for instance, can now be easily cured with antibiotics; so why condemn yourself to a bland diet instead? Touring the Digestive Tract The digestive tract is really just a long, winding tube. Rings of thick muscle, or sphincters, cordon off different sections of the tube: the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Each section has its own role to play in digestion; and each can fall victim to its own set of ailments.

If so, they should be eliminated from your diet. How you eat is also important. Whatmany of us do not know is that candidiasis is indeed a digestive problem.
Digestive problems are the No. 1 problem in North America. These diseases, encompassing everything from hemorrhoids to colon cancer, result in more time lost—at work, school, and play—than any other health problem. They also appear to be occurring with much more frequency—while many of them were almost unheard of in our grandparents’ times, they are cropping up more and more and at an earlier and earlier age.
Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a common complaint: some 10 to 20 percent of the population experiences the diverse symptoms this syndrome causes. IBS goes by several different names. It is also called spastic colon, spastic bowel, mucous colitis, spastic colitis, colitis, intestinal neurosis, and functional bowel disease.
As its name indicates, it is a collection of symptoms that can appear in any number of combinations. These symptoms include bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain and spasms, and nausea. The pain is often triggered by eating, so people suffering from IBS don’t always eat enough, which results in malnutrition.
Most health practitioners agree that there is no set cause of IBS, and that food allergies, medication, stress, hormone changes, low fiber intake, infection, parasites, lactose intolerance, laxatives, and antibiotic abuse could all be involved. In fact, the consensus is that just about anything that disturbs our intestinal bacterial balance—the ratio of good bacteria to bad bacteria—could have a hand in causing IBS. IBS is not serious in that it is not life-threatening; however, it makes for a very uncomfortable life.

Common Digestive Disorders
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, California
The most common thing which goes wrong is hypochlorhydria. It is impossible to overemphasize the subtle yet devastating results of hypochlorhydria, or underproduction of stomach acid. The entire digestive process depends on a healthy load of acid being dumped on food when it arrives in the stomach. If this does not happen, protein digestion is incomplete. Remember that acid is necessary to trigger secretin release from the duodenum, which, in turn, provokes the pancreas to produce lipase, proteinase and amylase. If acid is deficient, this response is muted, and digestion of not only protein, but also fat and carbohydrate is compromised. The presence of undigested food causes an overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria in the lower small intestine and in the colon. The toxins produced by these bacteria are absorbed, and the liver works overtime trying to straighten out the situation. The final result is poor digestion and inadequate absorption of nutrients (even in the face of a healthy diet) and also a toxic condition caused by overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria (a condition called "dysbiosis"). Many symptoms result from this toxicity: headaches, fatigue, hypertension, gas, muscle aches and pain, insomnia, personality changes, irritation and more. The frequency of hypochlorhydria in the population is fifteen percent. Among people who feel sufficiently ill to show up at a doctor's office, fully fifty percent are affected. By age forty, forty percent of all people are affected, and by age sixty, fifty percent have hypochlorhydria. A person over age forty who comes to a doctor's office has about a ninety percent probability of having hypochlorhydria. It is easily the most under-diagnosed and misdiagnosed condition in medicine.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease What are inflammatory Bowel Diseases? These are disorders where the bowel becomes red and inflamed. In ulcerative colitis the lining of the large bowel is involved. In Crohn's disease (named after an American physician) any part of the digestive tract can be affected and the full thickness of the bowel wall can become inflamed. Crohn's disease, when it affects the colon, and ulcerative colitis are similar so it is sometimes hard to tell which one a patient has. What is the cause of Ulcerative Colitis of Crohn's Disease? The cause or causes are not known. It is possible that affected people have an abnormal defence mechanism against the bacteria which are normally present in the gut. A long-term reaction to a particular bacterium or virus may be important. People in some families are more susceptible than in others, but the chance of passing this tendency on to children is small. What are the symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis? The disease can give trouble on and off throughout life. Most of the time, most sufferers feel well with no symptoms this means the disease is inactive (in remission). The disease flares up from time to time and becomes active (relapse). At each flare-up the symptoms can be better, worse or the same as the time before. The main symptoms are:
