AIP Orthorexia?

AIP Orthorexia?

Healing diets like the AIP have been accused by one social media influencer of leading to Orthorexia.

Facebook groups that promote #AIPperfectionism can be a factor in this.

What is Orthorexia? Is this risk real? What can we do about it?

I’m Stacey. I’m an ACE certified Health Coach and P.T. as well as a Certified AIP Coach through Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt’s practitioner program.

I have reversed all symptoms of my celiac disease, leaky gut and chronic fatigue with diet and lifestyle. I have also suffered from alopecia, anxiety and brain fog which have resolved without the use of medication.

My AIP journey included a few troubleshooting steps because of histamine issues and unique intolerances but now I feel amazing! I feel better in my 40’s than I ever have in my life!

The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, aka AIP has PROVEN potential to reduce or eliminate Autoimmune Disease symptoms!

I started AIP in November 2015 and followed the protocol for years without a dishwasher or oven (or microwave!) and on a budget with very little spare time. (Now I finally have an oven, lol…) I truly believe that if I could do AIP under those circumstances then so can you and I want to show you how!

(I have since been able to reintroduce some nuts, seeds, seed- based spices, etc but I keep my YouTube recipes 100% AIP elimination phase compliant!)

Always work with your physician when making dietary changes that could affect current health conditions, medications, etc.
