AIP Certified Coach is Back in 2021! Enroll Now!

As you all know, we work hard to produce resources to help you help yourselves. It’s no secret that our website, free guides, books, podcast, and social media presence are all focused on Do-It-Yourself empowered healing. But totally going it alone isn’t the answer either!

What is lacking are healthcare providers who know about and can effectively integrate AIP into their practices to best serve our community.

We have worked to bridge that gap by combining forces with our friend, Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D., to create the AIP Certified Coach Practitioner Training Program, an AIP-focused education and certification course specifically for the those working in the health and wellness fields.

We are very excited and proud to share that we trained more than 200 AIP certified practitioners, including doctors, so far. Woot-woot!

The healthcare world is beginning to change. With the fantastic AIP medical studies proving the efficacy of AIP getting so much attention and more and more of you reporting that your healthcare providers are asking about and even in some lucky cases, recommending AIP. We want to speed up this process by training even more healthcare providers in 2021!

Here are some of the areas we are educating practitioners about:

  • The science-based foundation for using dietary and lifestyle approaches to wellness
  • Integrating dietary and lifestyle approaches to healing into their scope of practice, whether they are massage therapists, fitness instructors, or medical doctors
  • Collaborating with you, their patients and clients, as well as other members of your healthcare team, so you have full support
  • Using troubleshooting to address your individual or complex needs as someone with autoimmune disease, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach
  • Raising their awareness levels about the nature of invisible illnesses and validating your struggles and concerns with deeper compassion

So, how can you help us further this mission?

  • If you are a practitioner or a provider in either the conventional or natural healthcare worlds, enroll now in our 2021 cycle of AIP Certified Coach!
  • If you are the patient or client of a provider who may be interested in learning more, pass information about AIP Certified Coach to them!
  • What if you don’t have a great provider to work with? Check out our directory so you can access trusted providers who know about and use AIP as part of their overall approach. We’re hoping to add even more providers this year!

It is time to focus our efforts on bridging the gap between the conventional and natural approaches to managing autoimmune disease.

Autoimmune disease is complex and it requires a nuanced strategy using all the tools in the tool box. Collaboration and integration are the future of healthcare and we are doing everything in our power to make that future a reality!

    Hi! I am an Alexander technique teacher with autoimmune disease (psoriatic arthritis, severe psoriasis, chronic migraine) interested in helping others in this community. This work has helped me immensely over two decades as a professional dancer. Is there a way to share my work in this community, so I may help others facing similar challenges? The AIP is supporting me hugely right now also!

      Hi Kate! Thanks for reaching out! The best way to share is to take our practitioner training program, where you can network with us and other providers who are using AIP in their work. We pick from our alumni base when coordinating guest posts and other content for the blog. Love to hear about what you are doing incorporating AIP into your practice!
