If someone told you that changing your diet could resolve symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, would you believe it? Well, now there’s proof!
The Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP diet) is a healing diet designed for people suffering with autoimmune disease. It’s meant to be a short-term solution for healing. The diet reduces inflammation and allows healing to take place by removing inflammatory trigger foods, for at least 30 days. Foods such as grains, dairy, soy, nuts and seeds, legumes, nightshades, eggs, additives and sugar should be avoided, but other vegetables, fruits, proteins and healthy fats are allowed. Some foods are eventually reintroduced slowly to find out if they are tolerated once the body has healed. But, many people stick with the diet most of the time as a preventative measure to stop flares from happening again. If you’re considering the AIP diet and would like to find out more, book a free discovery session and I’d be happy to discuss it with you.
Head over to Mickey and Angie’s site at Autoimmune Wellness to learn more about the medical study they were part of, which tested the effects of AIP diet on IBD patients. Here’s a few lines from their blog discussing the results. Use the source link below to find out more.
In December of 2015, we were contacted by Dr. Gauree Konijeti, the Director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program Division of Gastroenterology at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, California. Dr. Konijeti told us that a patient with inflammatory bowel disease had introduced her to AIP and the patient’s improvement was so remarkable she was inspired to learn more. After further discussion Dr. Konijeti explained that she’d like to undertake a medical study of AIP to evaluate its potential efficacy for patients with Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. She asked if Angie’s online group health coaching program, SAD to AIP in SIX, could be used to help the study participants transition to AIP. Our answer, of course, was, “YES, YES, YES!!”
