Meet Eileen

Hi, and welcome! My name's Eileen Laird, and I live a vital and joyful life with rheumatoid arthritis. While there is no cure for autoimmune disease, the choices we make every day can have a powerful impact on how we feel. I believe in a holistic approach:

  • Diet – using food as medicine.
  • Lifestyle – health is about more than just food.
  • Mindset – harnessing its anti-inflammatory power.
  • Medication – when necessary.

We don't need to be victims to our diagnosis.

My Story

What is the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol?

The AIP is a diet and lifestyle program designed to reduce inflammation, heal digestion, deliver nutrition that supports health, and ultimately reverse autoimmune disease. There are four elements to the protocol:

  • the inflammatory foods we avoid
  • the nutrient-dense foods we eat
  • the reintroduction process where we personalize our diet
  • and the lifestyle choices that support rather than detract from our health.
