AIP & Gut Healing with Michelle Hoover – Unbound Wellness
Guys! I had the amazing opportunity to interview Michelle Hoover, NTP from Unbound Wellness on the podcast this week.
We talked all things Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) & gut healing. If you’re curious to what AIP is or what the protocol looks like, take a listen.
Here’s the summary:

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.”

Digestive support & supplementation is necessary. Work-one-on-one with a nutritional therapist, chiropractor or other holistic practitioner to be sure your support is individualized and supporting exactly what you need it to. 
Mindset & emotional well-being – it’s not just about food. Stress, anxiety, worry can completely reverse the steps you’ve made with your diet. It can sabotage your health. Take time to get your mind right, slow down, be more mindful.
