Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What is the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet?
  • What is a coffee enema and how is it the same as or different from a colonic?
  • Should you work out if you have adrenal fatigue?
  • What do you use on your hair when you notice that it’s thinning?

Key Takeaways:

  • The AIP diet focuses on eliminating gut irritants from your diet. It’s similar to the Paleo diet but restricts a lot more. It works on healing the gut by eliminating certain foods that cause inflammation, which gives rise to gut issues, which in turn causes autoimmune diseases.
  • If you are having autoimmune issues and adrenal fatigue, it’s time for you to slow down and shift to lower-intensity exercises and focus more on healing your body, versus pushing it and overdoing it. 
  • If you have a low-functioning thyroid, you have high-functioning adrenals. So if you’ve got thyroid issues, that means you’ve also got adrenal issues.

Action Steps:

  • Consider doing the AIP diet especially if you have autoimmunity.
  • Try doing a colonic first before jumping into doing a coffee enema.
  • Cut down on how often you wash your hair and switch to more natural products.
  • Consider getting a full thyroid panel tested – TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, Anti TPO & Anti Tg

Samantha said:

“Coffee enemas are amazing and they’re a great tool and detox protocol that will help with detoxification and, of course, help support gut health.”

“Movement is important, absolutely, but movement doesn’t have to come in the form of high intensity… and so find something that’s a little bit lower intensity and do that and still focus on moving your body, but really respect that process of healing because it does need time.”
