Meet Eileen

Hi, and welcome! My name's Eileen Laird, and I'm using food as medicine to reduce my rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. If you browse the internet, you'll see I'm not alone.

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.
