What is AIP, Paleo, and Living AIP Paleo?
The Autoimmune Protocol, AIP, is an whole foods based approach to manage chronic disease focused on providing the body with the nutritional resources it needs to heal. AIP removes inflammatory foods and lifestyle choices that no longer serve the healing process. Remove foods proven by scientific studies to commonly be problematic for those with autoimmune disease and add in nutrient-dense foods that will help replenish your body and allow you to heal. Potentially problematic foods are removed for a temporary period of time (the elimination diet part), typically for 30-90 days.
Foods are then reintroduced one-by-one to uncover any remaining food intolerances that may prevent full healing. Along with food choices it is very important to get 8-9 hours of sleep, adequate exercise, engage in stress relief practices, and releases and mindset blocks that may be holding you back. Something to note is that the lifestyle choices are as important in your healing process as the foods choices you make each day.It’s important to note that calories are not restricted and healing is promoted.
The Paleo Diet is a nutrient-dense whole foods way of eating based on consuming a variety of high quality meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Paleo living improves health by providing highly nutritionist foods while avoiding most processed foods that only provide empty calories.
