AIP Resources


Whilst Autoimmune Paleo does not have much of a presence in the UK – hence our creation of a complete section of this website dedicated to those with autoimmune conditions – AIP is actually fairly well represented across the internet as a whole.


Just 10 years ago, the same would not have been true.


The benefit to those following AIP of the fact that information is relatively newly available is that what is out there is not too polluted with misinformation, unlike many areas of nutrition.

This means that we are happy to share in this section the details of professionals and amateurs alike who populate the world wide web with stories of their journeys with AIP.

You will find science and you will find evidence-based medicine. But mostly, when it comes to AIP, you will find real people who have lived the experience of attempting to integrate and evolve using AIP in their world. Whilst some of these people are professionals within healthcare, many are practitioners after the fact: i.e. their condition made them expert and led them to become qualified to help others.

Living, growing and adapting through Autoimmune Protocols is always a process and there is an art, not just a science, to changing your biology after developing an autoimmune disease. The people and websites included here have become prolific for two reasons: firstly, they are real and have shared deeply about their journey with following the AIP recommendations.

Secondly, they have allowed their diagnosis to change their behaviours, their choices and their relationship to, and respect for, their bodies. Without exception, everyone who excels whilst utilising the tool of AIP simultaneously allows their lives to change and reflect deeper self-care, a deeper connection to their personal needs and boundaries – and an intimate awareness of how to live inside their body with self-awareness.

Keeping Your Kitchen Gluten- and Contamination- Free

Be aware that if you are AIP then you will want to be staying completely grain free not just gluten free.  One of the key grains for cross-contamination is corn: it is in many medications, supplements and often it is just a substrate for growth for active ingredients and therefore is not listed on the label.  Your level of sensitivity will determine how strict you need to be with this.  Clinically we have found that reactivity at this micro-level is more often associated with external, emotional components which are sensitising the body (rather than the original autoimmune condition itself).  For more on how to tackle this, see our AIP Mindset page.
