Once upon a time, I had terrible periodontal issues. Adding oil pulling tto my oral hygiene protocol is arguably one of the best things I have done for developing healthy, pink gums. And since good gut health starts in the mouth, it’s a very AIP-friendly technique to add to your health toolbox!
I want to share a very special and potentially even paradigm-shifting little book with you – The Four Agreements. It’s one of my personal favourites, and I’ve been revisiting it during this time of COVID-19. It’s quite helpful for getting your head in the game…
Did you know that most of my clients come to me in the maintenance phase of their AIP caper? By the time you reach the third stage of the AIP, you have a very good understanding of what your AIP way of life should look like, but bizarrely – this is also the phase that is most likely to trip you up!
AIP Creepage is my name for the very human phenomenon of the lowering of your performance baseline on your personal Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) way of life.
In simple terms, it’s when you’ve been following your personalised version of the template – both the elimination diet and the lifestyle factors, but for any given reason your performance in terms of sticking to the letter of the protocol starts to slide.
My AIP way of life looks very different now to when I started this health caper six years ago, Today I’m sharing how it looks and my health goals for this year, too.
It’s hugely counter-intuitive, I know, but the very first thing we can do when we’re feeling overwhelmed is STOP. And, by stop, I mean stop the feeling of your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
There are a number of ways you can achieve this.
Our new decade has started with a massive bang. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been feeling all the feels that accompany catastrophic events like the bushfires currently raging here in Australia. I’ve had a number of people reach out to ask what they can do… Here are some suggestions.
No matter where you are in your health caper – just starting out or a seasoned AIPer – having a strong sense of purpose can be the difference between staying the course in the face of adversity, or taking a tumble.
I’m so pleased to introduce you to my Wheel of Health. This baby was born out of my experiences with personalising my AIP way of life. I wanted a tool to make it easier to focus on the important stuff… I hope you will find it helpful in your health caper!
