The AIP Paleo

IMG_1672

The Auto-Immune Paleo (AIP) Protocol or Ancestral Diet is supposed to modify or minimize the body’s auto-immune response—in other words, to slow down or reverse the body’s attack on itself. There is a broad range of autoimmune disorder available at length in the web and any medical books. I am not going to discuss that in detail here but I will provide trusted links on Grave’s Disease/Hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s Disease/Hypothyroidism and Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid)

Oftentimes Hypothyroidism comes after Grave’s Disease is treated via a Radioactive Iodine Treatment and can cluster with other Autoimmune issues. There are distinguished authors such as  Mickey Tresscot and Angie Alt who had success following AIPP to help manage their health issue such as Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s Disease. There is a prominent clinician and professor, Dr. Datis Kharrazian at https://drknews.com/autoimmune-gut-repair-diet/   who is successful in treating patients with auto immune disorders through a holistic approach including AIP and lifestyle modification. He is also a leading researcher in the importance of gluten free diet for people with Celiac Disease. You can read about  one of his research and interview at http://www.glutenfreeschool.com/2014/07/01/gluten-thyroid-issues/

I am mentioning them here for your reference and resources. I am not trying to associate myself to them, instead I would like to acknowledge their great works and how that had helped me in my path to healing.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism occurs after a Radioactive Iodine Treatment for Grave’s Disease.  Or it can happen as it is– an under-active thyroid.

The above information can be overwhelming and frightening especially if you are suffering one or both conditions. Take a deep breath and take heart. You are in the right path to healing as you are learning more about your condition.
