The autoimmune protocol diet or just AIP is one of the newest on the scene. It takes into account macro as well micro nutrients to help people with autoimmune diseases function better by watching certain foods known to give problems such as gluten. It functions similarly to paleo in its restrictions but the focus is on gut health. The idea is that intestinal permeability is what causes problems and limiting it may cure. Like all diets, consult your physician before starting it to see if it is appropriate for you.
- The idea behind AIP is that decreased intestinal permeability will help out people in the long run.
- This will help balance their gut flora and help with those autoimmune diseases
- Gluten is a huge culprit of those problems and overall the diet matches Paleo
“Although it can be restrictive, complicated and difficult to follow, the AIP diet may be able to manage symptoms and improve quality of life for those with an autoimmune disease.”
