I love hearing the stories of patients who take control of their health and experience amazing results. Here is a testimony from one of my patients…
Patient Testimonial of Healing – Tonia M.”It’s been a nostalgic weekend for me. Six months ago we were at this same resort in Redding California and my body went fast and furious into toxic overload. Systems in my body were slowly shutting down creating the perfect storm for autoimmune disease. I was bed or recliner ridden for weeks. Unable to function. Vertigo, nausea, blurred vision, organ pain, brain fog, inability to focus, all over body inflammation, random anxiety and the list goes on. Conventional medicine ran their battery of tests and told me I was healthy.
I started with rest. Learned how to breath deep. And then I had a gut feeling that I need to overhaul my diet. It was a process of elimination based on symptoms. I started by removing all coffee and alcohol. Then, all grains and sugars. Then eggs, legumes, nuts and nightshades. Essentially, I was eating Paleo modified AIP (auto immune protocol).
Through the course of five months, I unexpectedly lost 57 pounds. Which created its own problem losing that much weight in such a short period of time. Unfortunately, the toxins don’t just flush away with the fat; your body reabsorbs them.
And so now, with the help of an amazing Functional Medicine MD, Jill C. Carnahan, I have started the rest of my healing journey.
The lifestyle changes that we have made as a family to become healed and free from toxins have been difficult but worth every bit of the sacrifice.”

What a difference!
Is there a cookbook or a site that has meal plans that you can suggest that include the AIP foods and anit-histamine diet?
I recommend purchasing the amazing, Practical Paleo – the Autoimmune 30day plan or the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook.
