Episode 118: Boundaries and the Art of Saying No with Dr. Nicole LePera

When we’re trying to heal from chronic illness, self-care takes time – everything from preparing homemade meals, to taking time out to manage our stress, to prioritizing sleep at night. If we say yes to these things, we will need to say no to other things. The opposite is also true: if we don’t set boundaries, we won’t have the time we need to take care of ourselves. But today’s podcast isn’t just about time. Boundaries are also about respect and relationships. How do we want to be treated? What types of people do we want to surround ourselves with?

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.
