The Hashi’s/AIP Medical Study is a Go! Thank You to Our Donors

The Autoimmune Wellness community has come together in a BIG way recently. 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 our Medical Advisor, Rob Abbott, MD, to organize the first-ever medical study on the efficacy of AIP for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

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. 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 group of folks! In order to reach our goal, we knew we’d need some large-scale donations, but we didn’t expect so many folks to step up — some twice over. A sincere thank you to this group of “Rockstar” donors!
