Episode 67: Building Effective Doctor-Patient Relationships with Dr. Cynthia Li

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.

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 reintroduction process where we personalize our diet
  • and the lifestyle choices that support rather than detract from our health.
