A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol Review

When my good friend, Eileen Laird, told me she was releasing a new book in January, I was so excited. For those of you who may not know Eileen, she is the mastermind behind Phoenix Helix, and author of one of my favorite AIP resources, Reintroducing Foods on The Autoimmune Protocol. Her new book, A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, is the key so many of us, in the autoimmune community, have been missing.  And, you can get it in a printed  version!

A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, takes everything that is complicated about the AIP, and breaks it down into easy to follow steps.  If your head starts spinning every time you read about starting and following the AIP, you need this book.  Sometimes, we get paralyzed by too much info.  This can cause us not to make the changes we need to make, in order to heal our autoimmunity.  This book will make that transition easy and effective for you.

You will, as I have, consider Eileen to be your AIP guardian angel, as she walks you through the most difficult aspects of the Autoimmune Protocol.  She’ll gently guide you through situations like foods to eat and avoid, and why; traveling on the AIP; and dealing with holiday eating.  One of my favorite chapters in A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, is Overcoming Self-Sabotage.  Many times, I believe, we are our worst enemies.  We allow the voices in our heads, and fear to sabotage our efforts.  This chapter will give you actionable tips you can use to overcome those nasty saboteurs.

To celebrate the release of A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, Eileen asked me to join her and a couple of our other AIP buddies, to speak about our favorite aspects of her book, and about our own health journeys, on her amazing podcast.  You can listen in to what we had to say HERE. In the podcast, you will learn, if you haven’t already, AIP is not just about the food.  We all have different pitfalls and strengths when following the AIP.  Eileen thoughtfully discusses these pitfalls, and how to avoid them, inside her new book.

So, you can keep struggling, or avoiding the AIP altogether, because you think it’s too complicated.  Or, you can get A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, and breeze right through your AIP journey to health.

There are never any guarantees when it comes to your health.  I can’t tell you that you’ll put your autoimmunity into remission, if you follow the AIP.  But, I can tell you about my success on putting my lupus and psoriasis into remission, by following the Autoimmune Protocol.  Eileen can tell you of her success in calming her symptoms to the point where she is doing all of the activities she thought she’d never do again.  I can tell you of the many friends and followers, who have found success with the AIP.  Take your health into your own hands, folks.  You just ran out of excuses, because A Simple Guide To The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, just made the AIP easy for everyone to follow.

As always, I wish you good health……and, good food!

So, what’s included with each program?

AIP Batch Cook is a program that walks people through the planning and cooking of all of their meals for one week on the Autoimmune Protocol. Each session includes:
· A program guide walking users through what batch cooking is and how to use the materials properly

· A one-week meal plan for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the Autoimmune Protocol

· Two instructional videos walking users through the preparation of all of the food on the meal plan

· Shopping lists, chop lists, and tool lists that help them get organized for each batch-cooking session

· Video tutorials for making staples like bone broth, rendering their own solid cooking fat, and making their own kombucha

· Digital versions of every recipe and tutorial we cook together in the instructional videos

I seriously wish there was a program like this when I first started the AIP.  To have had Mickey Trescott in my kitchen to walk me through basics, like making bone broth and kombucha, would have made my transition so much easier.  It’s so thrilling to be able to offer this to you!  You can sign up for this revolutionary AIP Batch Cook program HERE, or through any of the links and photos in this post!

Mickey has left no stone unturned in putting together AIP Batch Cook.  She has thought of everything we need to create a delicious, time-saving, healthy menu for an entire week on the AIP.  Plus, you can access everything any time you want!

Reflections On My First Year Of The AIP

As some of you may know already, I celebrated my one year anniversary of being on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). I really kept my celebration low-key, until I saw a photo of myself from before I started my AIP journey. I quickly compared it to a photo I had of myself from a couple of months ago. The difference shocked me.

I mean, I knew I felt better; but, I had no idea how much better I looked. Now, this is not a vanity play. I simply noticed how much healthier I looked. My face had lost the puffiness from the steroid medication and liver inflammation. My lupus butterfly rash had disappeared. In my before photo, I could see the psoriasis rash that had covered my hands. That rash was now gone. My hair, which had been straggly and thinning, was now full and flowing. The dark circles under my eyes had vanished. And, I had a smile on my face in my after photo. I looked healthier and happier!

After seeing the differences in my photos, I started to reflect on my journey this year on the AIP. Although I hit a few bumps in the road with food reintroductions gone wrong, a severe respiratory infection, and a family member’s stressful medical emergency, I have refused to be defeated in my fight for better health. I have learned so many things this year, including the importance of batch cooking, food prepping, eating nutrient dense foods, managing my stress, getting enough sleep, relying on community, and practicing self love. I have learned how to fight for what’s truly important to me, my life.

Plus, I think of my family, and how they would feel if I had just given up after my diagnosis. How unloved and discarded would my husband have felt if I had chosen not to do everything in my power to live my life with him? And, my crazy, little dog, Gideon, how would she live without the Mama, who treats her like the most wonderful creature in the world? How would my Mom deal with watching her oldest (and favorite!) child suffer and wither away? Would my sisters and brother ever forgive me for leaving them without a fight? Would my nephews and niece ever know the aunt who loved them from afar? Don’t worry, my dear family, as y’all know, I’m not that kind of girl. This girl is a warrior!

So, when someone asks me how I could possibly have stayed on the AIP so long, I have a nice, long list of the reasons I did it, and continue to do it.

A year later, I have gotten my lupus and psoriasis under control. I have started to exercise again. My butterfly rash and psoriasis rashes have subsided, and in some cases, completely disappeared. I have lost 20 pounds of inflammation and steroid weight. I have stopped losing my hair. In fact, it’s growing like crazy again. I have discovered new foods that I enjoy so much more than the foods I gave up. I discovered a helpful, loving, accepting, encouraging community of autoimmune warriors, just like myself. I met my mentor, the amazing woman who wrote the book that saved my life, Dr. Sarah Ballantyne. And, the most important part, I got my life back.

If you’re struggling with autoimmune disease, I beg you to fight. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for your family, friends, or anyone else who wants you to live. Give the AIP a shot. It’s really not that hard, once you get going. Don’t let your lack of willpower prevent you from enjoying a symptom free life. I’m going to give you a little tough love here, so hang on. There is no such thing as kind of doing the AIP. You must commit to the elimination phase, with NO CHEATING, for a minimum of 30 days. Then, you must do the reintroduction phase honestly and correctly. There is no way you will feel the full benefits of the AIP, if you do not follow it properly. You may hate me now; but, if you follow it to the letter, you WILL thank me afterwards. Believe me, if you would have told me a year ago, I would have followed the autoimmune protocol for this long, I would have told you how nuts I thought you were. But now, I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Hopefully, I’ve convinced you to become an autoimmune warrior. There are tons of resources to help get you through this. Here are a few:
