The Autoimmune Wellness community has again come together in a BIG way! We want to take a minute to acknowledge the amazing folks who are initiating some big advancements in AIP, and to fill you in on what’s on the horizon!
As you may remember, a few weeks ago, we announced that we’d be partnering with PhD/MD candidate, Lucy Mailing at the University of Illinois, to organize the first-ever medical study on the efficacy of AIP for eczema and psoriasis.
Before we could set the wheels in motion, we needed to raise quite a bit of money to make it happen. We knew it would be a big ask, and we weren’t sure if we’d reached too far. But the community really came through for us. As always, we’re incredibly touched and grateful for your support.
As part of our fundraising campaign, we wanted to make sure these generous folks got the recognition they deserve. We’d now like to acknowledge the incredible generosity the following folks have shown, and thank them for their work in making this important study possible:
$500 and Up Donors
We are simply blown away by this lady! In order to reach our goal, we knew we’d need some large-scale donations, but we didn’t expect her to step up — several times over. A sincere thank you to this “Rockstar” donor!
Kitty Anderson // Jumpstart AIP (Kitty’s website and social media will be live in mid-August.)
Lauren Giacopino, LMT
Additionally, we had so many others who wished to remain anonymous or chose to donate without receiving the “public thanks” perk, but they are also deeply appreciated. To all who donated: we are incredibly grateful for your support! We are hopeful that this research furthers the understanding of how AIP can impact autoimmune disease and we could not have done it without you!
Keep an eye on the blog for updates on the medical study. Trust us, we can’t wait to share the results!
I heard Mickey interviewed by Chris Kelly.
Mickey mentioned wanting people with eczema or psoriasis to participate in a research trial.
I would be interested in being one of the subjects.
I have had psoriasis on my scalp since my teen years (I’m now 52). It varies in severity but never goes.
I live in Melbourne, Australia.
Please let me know if I am eligible to join your study and what’s involved.
Hi Dianne! Thanks for your interest, we actually just completed that study, so we are no longer looking for participants. Sorry about the confusion there, that podcast was recorded earlier in the year.
[…] are also more studies coming! Keep an eye out for the results from the AIP and Eczema/Psoriasis Study currently underway. I’m excited to see if they align with our personal experience using the […]
When will the results be available?
Lisa, we don’t have them yet, but we will share w/ the community the moment we do!
I was looking for the results of this study, I see it has been a bit over 3 years but I can’t find the results anywhere. Can you point me to where they are, or, if they haven’t been published yet, do you have a date for when it will be published?
Hi Angela! We know it has been a long time, but research got off track once the pandemic hit. We’re hoping that this will be published soon, and will announce to everyone as soon as we know more!
First I want to thank you ladies for all you do! I went through a major autoimmune storm for a year and a half. AIP saved me. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but it gave me my life back!!
Second, I’m helping a friend find info and resources for her son who has severe eczema… he’s only 9 months old. I cant find any articles on your website. Can you point me in the direction of anything that might help?
Hi Lucy, try this website. The researcher who lead the study runs it & she is well-versed in eczema & reversed her own severe case w/ an AIP approach.
Any updates on this study? Very curious on the results as I’ve had psoriasis for quite some time and seem to have some issues with animal fats. Curious if this is a personal issue or one connected with psoriasis sufferers in general. Thanks for all you do!!
We are still waiting on publication, but the lead researcher has informed me that she hopes to publish very soon. Thanks!
Any updates on psoriasis study?
Nastya, not yet. But we are crossing our fingers that it will be published soon.
What is the best way to find out when the study is published?
Laura, we will announce & share here the second we have access.
Laura, if you are on our email list, we’ll be sending out a newsletter as soon as we get the news.
Any update on the study yet? I was a participate and would love know the results. Thanks,
Hi Lee Ann, the only update we have is that the study is awaiting publication. Things got held up a lot during the pandemic. We’ll be alerting everyone as soon as we have the news!
