Research Update: Efficacy of the Autoimmune Protocol for IBD & Hashimoto’s Disease
with Mickey Trescott & Jaime Hartman
With autoimmune disease affecting over 50 million Americans, practitioners are likely to regularly see patients struggling with low quality of life due to autoimmunity and find the management of their cases is often complex. The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), a science-based elimination and reintroduction protocol, has anecdotally been a game-changer for thousands of autoimmune patients through elimination of food-driven sources of inflammation and restoration of nutrient sufficiency. In this presentation we go beyond the anecdotal and review the medical research conducted using autoimmune protocol interventions to date, introducing practitioners to the mounting evidence that it can significantly change their patient’s trajectory alone or in combination with conventional, naturopathic, or functional medicine treatments.
