Mickey Trescott, NTP is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, blogger, author, and advocate for those taking recovery from autoimmune disease into their own hands. Mickey has a special place in my heart because her first book was the resource that my wife, Julie, used to help me recover my own health. She’s now written a second book, The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen, emphasizing the healing aspects of the highly nutritious foods available within the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) template.
In this interview, Mickey and I discuss her journey to finally being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and celiac diseases, and the lifestyle factors that may have contributed to her illness. She discusses some of the pitfalls encountered by people following AIP, and the clinical trials being done to empirically validate AIP as a treatment for autoimmune disease.
