AIP & gut healing
The Auto Immune Protocol (AIP) focuses on nutrient density. Foods can be viewed as having two kinds of parts within them: those that promote health (like nutrients) and those that undermine health (like inflammatory compounds). The Autoimmune Protocol places greater emphasis on the most nutrient-dense foods in our food supply, including organ meat, seafood, vegetables, bone, fermented foods. And eliminates foods those that have compounds that may stimulate the immune system or harm the gut environment, including nightshades (like tomatoes and peppers), eggs, nuts, seeds, and alcohol. The goal of the Autoimmune Protocol is to flood the body with nutrients while simultaneously avoiding any food that might be contributing to disease/inflammation (or at the very least interfering with our efforts to heal).
Tips/Hints for AIP
Nutrient density – is so important, your body needs minerals, vitamins, good quality fats – look for healing foods like bone broth, liver, grass-fed meats, fermented foods
“it’s not only about what you remove, it’s about what you eat and how healing they are to your body.”
