Quarterly Community Update – June 2017


The quarterly Community Update is our chance to give you a heads up about AIP community news, podcasts, video series, and local in-person meet-up groups. If you have started a local support group on Facebook (no pages please), send the link to [email protected] and we will promote it!

AIP Practitioner Training – Sign Up Now!

Enrollment is now open for AIP Certified Coach, the practitioner training program we’ve been working on with Sarah Ballantyne! We already have a great class filling up with CHCs, NTPs, NTCs, CNCs, LAcs, NDs, RDs, RNs, and even a couple of MDs. This movement needs you!

Join us in learning how to incorporate AIP into your practice to help your autoimmune clients regain their health and navigate their conventional health care needs collaboratively. We expect the first class to sell out, so don’t wait. Sign up here!

All-New AIP Resources Page

We’ve been working hard on revamping our Resources page so we can better direct you to the books, resources and tools that have made our AIP journeys easier. We’re so excited to unveil it!

Check out our list of the best kitchen tools, AIP cookbooks, podcasts, food purveyors, Hashi’s resources, and so much more! Click here.

Phoenix Helix Podcast

A bi-monthly podcast about autoimmune healing by Eileen Laird of Phoenix Helix, featuring interviews from experts in the field of health and nutrition as well as individuals living with autoimmunity. If you would like to visit the podcast archives, click here.

Episode 72: Paleo Dentist Q&A with Dr. Mark Burhenne

Taking care of your oral microbiome is just as important as taking care of your gut. In this episode, hear Eileen talk to a Paleo-minded dentist about the effectiveness of oil pulling, cavity reversal, mercury amalgam removal, and so much more.

Episode 71: Trying to Do It All: Work, Family and Healing

Following the AIP is a time commitment for anyone, but when your life is already intensely busy, how do you fit it all in? Eileen speaks with three AIP mothers who also work outside the home to learn how they make a healing lifestyle work in spite of the multiple demands on their time.

AIP Meetup Groups

Find a local networking group centered around the Autoimmune Protocol! Be advised that these are not disease-specific support groups, but are to facilitate in-person networking and support for those on or considering the Autoimmune Protocol. Each group has their own moderation and rules for membership, but generally they are private and supportive of those on their healing journeys. Know that this listing does not imply endorsement by Autoimmune Paleo, groups are not run by us, and your request to join and any information you may encounter in these groups is at your own risk.

If possible, please request membership in a group local to where you live — after all, the whole idea is to get together with others in your community who are facing similar challenges! Health coaches, practitioners, online marketers, and others trying to sell their products, know that many of these groups are well moderated and solicitation will not be tolerated. If there isn’t a group near you, consider starting your own and letting us know about it on our contact page!

    Are there any meet up groups in Hawaii? Or health practitioners Specifically Maui?

    • Angie Alt says

      Angie, if there are Hawaiian groups, we have not yet been notified of them, but we’d love you to start one! As far as doctors, we’d recommend researching the Primal Physicians Network or Primal Docs.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Angie, the above listing are all of the groups we are aware of. You could always start one to begin local networking to find a doctor!
