    I was finally able to listen to this podcast episode this past weekend on a long walk. I just wanted to say thank you for putting this out into the world. Your wise words gave me a lot of reassurance and I really appreciate that. I have Crohn’s and am on a biologic medication (Humira). I have been following AIP for 2 years, with reintroductions for about the past 18 months. I’ve really tried to make this a lifestyle, as you always strongly recommend, focusing on sleep and stress management, along with food. Thankfully, right now my Crohn’s seems to be very well controlled and I feel overall healthier and stronger than I have in a long time. Of course, none of us know how our individual bodies will respond to COVID-19, but this podcast did give me reassurance that I am doing basically everything within my power to strengthen my immune system in healthy ways. This podcast episode really helped lower some of my fears and anxieties around my own personal health so thank you so much. Wishing you both continued health in the months ahead…
