The autoimmune protocol can be a huge life change, and there are so many resources available to dig through. When I started, I decided to focus on a small number of AIP resources first. Below are the AIP resources that I have personally used and love, and I’ll continually add to this list as I discover more. I also should note that all of these resources (except for maybe the Hashimoto’s Protocol) have beneficial information for anyone interested in living a healthy life, not just for those with autoimmune disease.
The AIP Lecture Series doesn’t shy away from teaching important scientific concepts. Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD firmly believes that understanding how foods affect our health and the cellular level is an essential motivator for making positive and lasting change, as well as being critical to the self-discovery processes of finding individual tolerance and reintroduction. Dr. Sarah explains the scientific evidence for each facet of the Autoimmune Protocol in her approachable style using accessible language and visual guides. The lectures are loaded with practical tips and strategies for implementation. You’ll learn what to eat (not just what to avoid) and why, how to balance lifestyle and diet priorities, and Dr. Sarah will tackle many topics related to day-to-day AIP life like eating out, reintroductions and even where to start when it comes to troubleshooting.
The Autoimmune Wellness Podcast
Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt discuss living with and healing autoimmune disease, and autoimmune community. I found this podcast to be very calming to listen to and I’ve learned a lot from it.
Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations
Even though it’s not about autoimmune disease specifically, this podcast was so inspirational to me when I was just starting to make a lot of the lifestyle changes necessary for the autoimmune protocol. AIP is not just about diet and nutrition, it’s a total lifestyle change and that’s not always an easy thing to tackle. SuperSoul helped me get into and stay in the right mindset for change.
