Entertaining the AIP Diet

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

 Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food– with these words spoken way back in 5th century BC, Hippocrates the father of western medicine recognised the value of eating well and the potential of certain foods for good health…

 

I just returned from Texas and my friend has just started this AIP diet.  She is working with a functional medicine DR and they have decided her auto-immune system is why she isn’t feeling well.

 

My history with health is an interesting one.  I have never been super healthy.  As a matter of fact people often tell me “you’re the sickest healthy person I know.”  I have been using NSP herbal Supplements and vitamins for years, and they have changed my life.  You should have seen how sick I was BEFORE!

 

Doctors can’t seem to ever explain what is wrong with me.  I know I have an auto-immune marker that always shows up on blood tests, that then leads them to look at things like Lupus or MS but it always comes back as inconclusive. But here’s the kicker: I refuse to accept a “diagnosis” anyway…….so it honestly wouldn’t matter what the diagnosis would be.  I’m going to do what I can to be healthy. (expect give up coffee! LOL I have switched to organic and I also have reduced the amount I drink.)

 

At any rate I’m going to give it a shot.  The list is small on what foods you can start with… it seems a little daunting, but I’ve gotten creative with some foods!  Follow me on FB and I’ll keep you posted on the recipes and the progress.  I am usually more inclined to gradually work into a diet, but for the sake of testing this out, I’m going to jump in both feet and go into this diet cold turkey (again I’m not giving up coffee just yet!)

 

’til next time~
