Autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet
Doctors report that the most common question asked by people with autoimmune diseases—like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), lupus, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Hashimoto’s—is, “What should I eat?” The question of what to eat is one that troubles most of us from time to time (usually when we’re #hangry after a loooong day), but it’s one that’s particularly relevant to autoimmune warriors. That’s because autoimmune conditions are linked with changes to the health of your digestive tract, which is why diet matters so much! The autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet is one answer to the “what should I eat” question. AIP is a riff on the Paleo diet, specifically aimed at healing the gut, fostering healthy gut microbes, giving your body the nutrients it needs to heal, and balancing excess inflammation in your body. The big question: Can changing your diet really change your wacky immune response? Preliminary research, plus studies on real patients, suggests it can! The AIP diet begins with a strict initial elimination phase, followed by a maintenance phase (the length varies from person to person) during which symptoms can improve significantly. After several weeks or months on the maintenance phase, you can gradually reintroduce some of the foods you eliminated. During this reintroduction phase, you’ll be able to identify which foods you tolerate well, and which foods may contribute to your symptoms. In a way, the AIP diet is about figuring out the puzzle that is your body! Certain foods (even some healthy ones!) are believed to trigger inflammation in sensitive people, especially if you have an autoimmune condition, but success on this diet is about more than just swapping one food with another. Real talk: This diet is pretty strict. This type of elimination diet requires a “wash-out” period of all potentially inflammatory foods, meaning total avoidance, followed by specific reintroductions of potentially reactive foods like eggs, nuts, and seeds. This is a difficult diet to manage on your own, so it’s recommended that you work with a skilled integrative nutritionist to guide you through the process. As a team effort, AIP can feel a lot easier.

The Autoimmune Fix: How to Stop the Hidden Autoimmune Damage That Keeps You Sick, Fat, and Tired Before It Turns Into Disease
Do you have crud in the blood? Millions of people suffer from autoimmunity whether they know it or not. The root cause of most weight gain, brain and mood problems, and fatigue, autoimmunity can take years—or even decades—for symptoms and a clear diagnosis to arise. Through years of research, Dr. Tom O’Bryan has discovered that autoimmunity is actually a spectrum, and many people experiencing general malaise are already on it. And while autoimmune diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, and lupus, have become the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer, many people affected are left in the dark. The good news is that many autoimmune conditions can be reversed through a targeted protocol designed to heal the autoimmune system, 70 percent of which is located in the gut. The Autoimmune Fix includes two comprehensive 3-week plans: In the first 3 weeks, you’ll follow a Paleo-inspired diet during which you cut out gluten, sweets, and dairy—the three primary culprits behind autoimmunity. Once the dietary changes have been addressed, The Autoimmune Fix focuses on the other causes of autoimmunity such as genetics, other dietary issues, and microbiome. The Autoimmune Fix provides a practical and much-needed guide to navigating these increasingly common conditions to help you feel better and develop a plan that works for you.

Cole’s approach to health is individual, but he explains why he’s a big fan of intermittent fasting, and why—good news—you can drink coffee during it. He also shares his food philosophy and the Ketotarian diet he created: a mashup of the best of the plant-based and ketogenic worlds. For more, go to goop.com/thepodcast.

New Frontiers in Functional Medicine: Transformational Approaches to Multiple Sclerosis and Autoimmunity with Dr. Terry Wahls
Dr. Terry Wahls was a practicing primary care physician when she was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS. Despite treatment at some of the finest medical institutions in the United States, her health progressively declined until she could no longer walk. When she discovered functional medicine, she made a rapid turnaround. Soon she wasn’t just walking again, she was doing 20-mile bike rides. Today, Dr. Wahls conducts research using variations of her protocol, including intensive directed nutrition, progressive exercise programs, electrical stimulation, and the use of dietary supplements for patients with MS. She conducts her research at the Iowa VA, through the University of Iowa and is supported through grassroots fundraising. In this episode of New Frontiers in Functional Medicine, Dr. Wahls talks with Dr. Fitzgerald about her physical and spiritual transformation — and how other patients with chronic conditions can realize similar results.
