It seems like at least once a month on a podcast, I'm recommending somebody... ...whether that somebody is having skin issues like acne or eczema, gut pain, brain fog, food allergies or intolerances or constipation or any other signs of immune system or inflammation issues... ...try something called the "Autoimmune Diet". Problem is, this particular diet, typically meant to be followed for a short period of time until things are healed up, can be confusing when it comes to whether you really need to use it to heal an issue, which foods are "allowed" and which foods aren't, how to transition off the diet back into a "normal" eating style once you've finished the autoimmune diet, and that's exactly why I decided to have Eileen Laird on the show. Eileen just wrote the book "", I read it last week, and it's exactly what it promises, a book simple enough that even someone with brain fog can understand, written like a conversation between friends a simple and contains all of the essential information in a package small enough to throw in your purse or backpack. Eileen is a writer, podcast host, and self-described "autoimmune warrior", who has reversed rheumatoid arthritis through this diet. Her blog, , receives 1 million unique visitors annually and there she features recipes, research and personal stories about the autoimmune experience. She also writes "Autoimmune Answers", a regular column in , and is the host of the , the only paleo podcast focused 100% on autoimmune healing. During our discussion, you'll discover: -What exactly the autoimmune paleo diet is... -Why your body can attack itself and what you can do about it... -What a sample daily meal plan would look like... -A surprising "substitute" for organ meats... -Why Eileen isn't a fan of stevia... -Why it's a myth that the liver stores toxins... -Three "gentle" ways to detox... -If you can use nightshades, how you can make meals spicy... -How to "transition" back to normal eating after following the AIP, and he an order in which you would introduce foods... -And much more!
