Episode 133: The Gut Microbiome with Dr. Lucy Mailing

There’s a community of 38 trillion microorganisms living in and on our bodies, and most of them reside in our gut. That’s equal to the number of cells in the human body. By this definition, we are only 50% human. This is why gut health has such a huge impact on human health, and research in this area is exploding.

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 beneficial.

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, minimize autoimmune symptoms, heal digestion, and deliver nutrition that supports health. 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.
