Welcome to The Autoimmune Wellness Podcast Season 1! We’ve created this podcast as a free resource to accompany our upcoming book, The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook: A DIY Guide to Living Well with Chronic Illness.

Episode #7: Step 3: In-Depth with Aglaée Jacob, MS, RD is an episode dedicated to chatting with a well-known registered dietician in the “Real Foods” community. We greatly respect Aglaée’s work and asked her to join us in a conversation covering the deeper details of dietary healing, especially how to further modify AIP if healing is not as expected. Aglaée talks about FODMAP intolerance, starch intolerance, and histamine intolerance, all issues that can be uncovered while on AIP and may require specific modifications to help control uncomfortable symptoms. She also explores adding nutrient density with us and outlines new nutrition research she’s most interested in right now. One of the best parts of this episode is in the beginning, where Aglaée tells us about the powerful process she went through on the road to becoming a “Real Food” RD and the shift she sees happening years later in her profession. This episode is excellent if suspect that gut trouble is hindering your healing progress and need concrete details about tackling it.

If you’d like to go more in-depth on Step 3: Nourish, check out the “Nutrient Density” section in Chapter 3. This section gives even more detail on the nutrient density guidance that Aglaée shares in this episode.
