Gut Health and Inflammation
"All disease begins in the gut." -Hippocrates
A healthy immune system is designed to protect your body against and even attack foreign or harmful cells in your body. When we fill our bodies and systems with over processed foods, sugar laden drinks or excessive alcohol, our natural defense systems are compromised and our gut’s permeability increased.
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is a diet that aims to reduce inflammation, pain, and other symptoms caused by autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis (1).
The AIP diet focuses on eliminating these foods and replacing them with health-promoting, nutrient-dense foods that are thought to help heal the gut, and ultimately, reduce inflammation and symptoms of autoimmune diseases (2).
Our team of professionals will guide you through both elimination and reintroduction protocols as well as making recommendations on supplementation and other complimentary functional services to promote overall healing.
