AIP: Onion salt and Kale chips!

Thanks Lori for finding this great AIP friendly seasoning @traderjoes! Just made some amazing kale chips with a splash of 🥑 oil and this onion salt. This was all that was left after my family got to these puppies!#aipcommunity #kalechips #kaleyeah#cheerstoyourhealth #keepitclean#nomnomnom

Hot Stone Himalayan Salt Massage

Happy 2018 to our AIP Community.  Kat and I and our families were busy enjoying the holidays and then passing around the flu – so we’re sorry we’ve been MIA for a bit!

I wanted to post about the massage I just had today at Elements Massage in San Ramon.  I’m told their locations across the US offer this one.

It’s a hot stone, Himalayan sea salt  massage and it was nothing short of amazing.  Janelle was my massage therapist today.  She did a stellar job.  I’m was super excited to try this because of all the anti-inflammatory properties this massage offers.  The hot stones made my muscles relax and for the first time I was a pliable subject!

My Skin feels super soft and my body feels 100%, and my mind and body are refreshed.

This massage has my recommendation!

*Always make sure the lotions and oils are gluten free – I checked and still brought my own lotion just in case 😉

 

Autoimmune Awareness Monday – Vitigilo

Autoimmune Awareness Monday- Vitigilo. Skin pigment discoloration, loss of pigment, can cover large parts of the body. As of now there is no cure and many questions surrounding this disease. Let me pump my brakes just a second and point out the tie in with other AI diseases/syndromes – shine in the picture. Week after week I am seeing this during my research. Let me share another vantage point regarding Vitiligo that might resonate with you. A brilliant friend and health advocate suggested her nephew suffering from Vitiligo do a GI map test. Yeast was off the charts – #candida – so then she spoke with her NP friend and suggested that she have her patients with Vitiligo run the test and 100% that tested all tested positive for candida/yeast overgrowth. So some biohacking is in process. They’re following the AIP diet and on a regiment for candida and charting symptoms and progress. Personally I’ll always maintain that what’s happening in our gut is the biggest piece of the puzzle. Knowing that not everything can be cured, but discomfort lessened, symptoms reduced/cleared up and in some cases bodies healed. It’s food for thought. Listen to your gut. #socliché #foodforthought#listentoyourgut #vitigilo #skinpigmentation#autoimmunepaleo #autoimmunedisease#autoimmunepaleo #yeastovergrowth #candida#hashimotosdisease #gravesdisease#addisonsdisease #alopecia #perniciousanemia#psoriasis #polyglandular #detox #aipworks#youcontrolyourhealth #yougotthis

AI Awareness – Lyme Disease

 

While attending family camp this weekend I met a lot of people suffering from various AI diseases. Upwards of 50% of us had dietary restrictions because of this. The kitchen staff was amazing and the camp staff had posted flyers and camp songs about ticks in every bathroom. Lyme disease was forefront on the radar and I wanted to post about it today. I only know 3 people with Lyme, and all of their experiences are different. Their treatment regiments are vastly different. One of them couldn’t find a MD that believed in Lyme Disease. One gave up hope early if ever regaining his health. One common thread for them is nutrition. Good, solid, AIP nutrition does a lot for them. Today we put Lyme Disease out there to help raise awareness. #lymedisease #lymewarrior💚 #aipworks#aip #inflammation#beyourownadvocateforhealth #guthealth#fightfatiguewithfood #ticks#knowledgeispower #dontgiveup
