Hi, I’M DR. MICHELLE
For years I suffered from an undiagnosed autoimmune condition and was feeding my body foods that were only making my condition worse. I was tired, gaining weight, and unhappy.
Once I discovered how to feed my body in a way that would help to reduce inflammation, heal my gut and reverse my autoimmune condition, things started to turn around. I was even able to reverse my infertility!
Now I spend my days teaching women of all ages, and their families to ditch their diagnosis and take healing into their own hands. I’m passionate about helping women harness the power of nature so they can elevate their genetic expression and live vibrantly, not just by optimizing health physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I hope you enjoy this holiday guide, and if you want to take things to the next level in your healing, we are here to help.

What is Autoimmune Protocol?
The autoimmune protocol, or AIP, is an effective diet and lifestyle protocol that helps autoimmune sufferers overcome the underlying triggers and mediators preventing recovery, including inflammation, leaky gut, hormone imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, micronutrient deficiencies, and immune system dysregulation.
The autoimmune protocol diet is a form of elimination and reintroduction protocol: For a time,you eliminate foods that are known to drive inflammation and resulting symptoms, and then you reintroduce foods methodically to rule out reactivity.
The optimal end result is a diet and lifestyle that support your health while avoiding factors that undermine it. What is most often misunderstood is that each person will end up with a slightly different ideal diet, based on their body’s unique needs, biology, and genetics.
The diet must be very basic and simple so as not to trigger inflammation in the intestines and further worsen leaky gut and autoimmune flare-ups.
I’m sure that you’re wondering what the AIP entails: what you can eat and what you have to avoid. Let’s start with the foods you should avoid while working to heal your body
