Mickey Trescott is a cook and one of the bloggers behind Autoimmune Paleo. After recovering from her own struggle with both Celiac and Hashimoto’s disease, adrenal fatigue, and multiple vitamin deficiencies, Mickey started to write about her experience to share with others and help them realize they are not alone in their struggles. She is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner by the Nutritional Therapy Association, and is the author of The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, a guide and recipe book for the autoimmune protocol. You also can find her on Instagram, or on her book tour.
Mickey and I have a lot in common. We both suffered a health crisis; we both are sensitive to gluten, and both had thyroid issues. The good news is that using a combination of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and functional medicine we've both made a full recovery. You can too!
You can read the full version of Mickey's story, from asthma to Hashimoto's thyroiditis over on her blog. I first discovered her book using the Google search "AIP cookbook". At that time, the Paleo Mom had tons of great information on the science on her site, but there wasn't much in the way of help trying to figure out what you should eat. Mickey's cookbook proved to me that AIP wasn't just survivable; it was good!
It's important to note that whilst AIP is a crucial first step to recovering from autoimmunity; it's not the only part. Rest, exercise, stress management and supplements are all important. An unhealthy host makes a great home for infection and hormone imbalance. The liver often struggles to keep up with the additional demand and the burden of nutrient deficiencies. Figuring all this out is only hard if you're guessing. Don't guess, do a test! Find out how in a free 15-minute consultation.
