The halo effect and AIP is something that has the potential to affect every one of us on this healing caper!
The halo effect is a term from psychology that describes confirmation bias. Generally, it can be described as when you evaluate something based on one quality, and then make judgments based on that one quality.
When it comes to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), the halo effect is in play when an AIPer has deemed that they have had a particular health improvement after focusing on one specific area of the protocol. When this occurs, they may then be predisposed to attribute all their health improvements on this one area.
