I have an autoimmune disease called Alopecia Areata. My immune system sees my hair follicles as foreign and attacks them. Yup Alopecia ate my hair! I have suffered from it for 10 years. This past year after I had my daughter I lost all my hair. On top of losing my hair I had digestive issues, rashes and fatigue. Something was wrong and doctors had no answers. I then discovered the AIP diet.
The Autoimmune Protocal (AIP) Diet is a very restrictive diet that removes foods considered to be gut irritants. Its essentially a strict version of Paleo diet. All disease is believed to start in the gut and this diet focuses on healing the gut and decreasing inflammation in the body.
