REDUCE INFLAMMATION AND PROMOTE GUT HEALTH WITH THE AIP DIET
Six-week class on Wednesdays
APRIL 25–May 30
Autoimmune disorders affect over 23.5 million Americans, and occur when the body’s immune system begins to produce antibodies that attack the tissues of the body instead of fighting infection.
If you suffer from an autoimmune disorder such as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis or an inflammatory disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, the Autoimmune Paleo Diet/Protocol (AIP) can help to heal the immune system and gut mucosa from the damage that an inflammatory Western diet can produce.
We focus on the gut because inflammation there is the root cause of inflammation in the entire body, and can lead to the development of an autoimmune disease or a flare-up in existing disease. Following the AIP will enable you to stop the vicious cycle of hypersensitivity and self-tissue attack once and for all.
During this six-week class, you will reduce inflammation by removing immune triggers that promote inflammation in the gut and the rest of the body. Then, we’ll discuss food reintroductions, and explore what a modified AIP diet looks like as you move into the maintenance phase.
Autoimmune diseases have no cure, but they can be put into remission. This class will give you the tools to prevent inflammation before it occurs, and to treat the symptoms of your active disease or disorder when you’re experiencing a flare.
