I’m so excited to announce the the next session of The AIP Lecture Series!!! It begins Monday, September 13th, 2021 and there’s still time to get early-bird pricing!
I created the AIP Lecture Series to provide a rich and supportive learning environment for autoimmune disease sufferers and caregivers. In this 6-week, video-based, top-rated online course, I teach the scientific foundation for the diet and lifestyle tenets of the Autoimmune Protocol, plus provide tons of tips and strategies for implementation, refinement and troubleshooting!
I love teaching this online course because it’s also my opportunity to provide personalized guidance and support, and I connect with every single student within a private Facebook group for the course, read every single comment, and answer every single question posed during the session.
The 42 video lectures stream on-demand, each one paired with recommended reading, action steps, and self-discovery exercises. There’s also dozens of printables, twice weekly guided discussions in a private Facebook group, and I also share weekly (or more!) FAQ videos in the private Facebook group for the course.
New in 2021
As a result of my research for The Gut Health Guidebook, I have added a 70-minute bonus lecture on the gut microbiome to the course. I’ll be incorporating more gut microbiome conversation into my FAQ videos posted weekly in the private Facebook Group for the course as well.
And as a result of recent research I’ve done on weight stigma (an epic blog post is coming in the next few weeks), I’m planning even more mindset and habit formation conversation in the private Facebook Group.
I am taking action to increase diversity and inclusion throughout the autoimmune community. As one aspect of a developing action plan, I am offering ten full scholarships (including tuition and textbooks) for each session of the AIP Lecture Series intensive online course to members of historically underrepresented and systemically oppressed communities. These scholarships are intended to increase access to AIP education in the context of historical and present day systemic inequities that disadvantage people of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and mixed-race heritage, as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities. The deadline for applications is August 21st, 2021. Click here to learn more and apply.
More About The AIP Lecture Series
The Autoimmune Protocol Lecture Series is a 6-week video-based, self-directed intensive online course that will teach you the scientific foundation for the diet and lifestyle tenets of the Autoimmune Protocol, plus provide tons of tips and strategies for implementation, refinement and troubleshooting!
The AIP Lecture Series features:
- 42 on-demand video lectures (totaling 16 hours!), all taught by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD
- the most up-to-date information on the Autoimmune Protocol
- dozens of printable guides
- action steps to help you go from theory to practice
- daily self-discovery exercises to reinforce and refine implementation
- an online forum to connect with other students and ask questions
- guided discussions in the online forum
- weekly FAQ videos in the online forum
- recommended reading for every topic
- interactive quizzes to test your knowledge
- support and guidance directly from me!
The AIP Lecture Series doesn’t shy away from teaching important scientific concepts. I firmly believe that understanding how foods affect our health and the cellular level is an essential motivator for making positive and lasting change, as well as being critical to the self-discovery processes of finding individual tolerance and reintroduction. But, you don’t need a science background to take this course! I explain the scientific evidence for each facet of the Autoimmune Protocol in my signature approachable style using accessible language and visual guides. If you enjoy my books and articles on this website, you’ll love this course!
The lectures are also loaded with practical tips and strategies for implementation, so you can go from theory to practice with this course! You’ll learn what to eat (not just what to avoid) and why, how to balance lifestyle and diet priorities, and I tackle many topics related to day-to-day AIP life like eating out, reintroductions and even where to start when it comes to troubleshooting.
You also get direct access to me in the private Facebook group, where I provide personalized guidance and support for every student, and I make sure to answer every single question asked during the session.
I have carefully crafted the online course to cater to all experience levels, from the person completely new to the idea of diet and lifestyle changes to heal from chronic illness, to someone who has dabbled in Paleo or AIP but had trouble sticking to it in the past, to the Autoimmune Protocol veteran who already has seen great results, to the caregiver supporting family or friends with autoimmune disease, to the practitioner looking to begin their advanced learning of the Autoimmune Protocol.
You can benefit from the information presented in this course whether you’re in the early phases of diagnosis, are looking to reduce disease risk due to a strong family history, or have battled autoimmune disease or other chronic illness for years.
What Previous Students Say
Wow! I am overwhelmed at all the amazing, dedicated work, you have done Sarah in order to corral the evidence and logic behind the AIP approach for us to sit back and digest! You are a truly dedicated scientist driven by insatiable curiosity and a caring heart to get this important information out into the world. Thank you.
I can’t thank you enough for sharing all your knowledge and insights. I’ve heard things from you that I’ve never heard from even a doctor. Also, your gentle and supportive way of encouraging us and giving us a template to work with has tremendously helped me.
In an industry full of guru-wanna-be’s and personalities pushing baseless miracle cures, I appreciate that you are recommending evidence based diet and lifestyle steps that do not require the purchase of special products or services. No gimmicks. Just real food and lifestyle habit recommendations based on science. Thank you!!
This is a super, information packed course with tons of practical information.
I am loving this AIP course and all the information I am receiving. The amount of work you have put into this is amazing and greatly, GREATLY, appreciated. Thank you so much. Taking this course gives me the knowledge I need to understand why my body is doing what it is doing and reinforces my determination to continue along this dietary path to heal it. Invaluable!
I am loving this course! Having the details is more motivating and helping me stick to AIP. I am actually thinking about what is happening in my body, not just how it feels.
This online learning resource and your teaching style are beyond amazing! I am so excited about what I am learning! This is way beyond what I was expecting.
You are so awesome. I’ve learned more useful information with a direct and immediate application to health in one 15+ minute video from you, than a 20-year stint of clinic and doctor office visits were able to provide.

I carefully planned every aspect of this course to be accessible no matter what time zone you’re in or what your schedule looks like! You can stream the video lectures on-demand, and contribute to the Facebook guided discussions, ask me your questions, or watch my FAQ videos on your own schedule.
You access the course by logging in under “My Account” at the top of ThePaleoMom.com homepage and selecting “AIP Lecture Series” under “My Courses”.
Every Monday during the 6 weeks of the session, a new module will unlock. Each week/module of the course features 7 related topics. Each topic contains 1 video lecture (videos vary in length but each week contains 2 to 3 hours of total video), which streams on-demand. Each video is accompanied by recommended reading as well as relevant printables, action steps, and a self-discovery exercise.
Proceed through each week at your own pace! You must go through the topics in order and watch each video lecture in order to mark that topic as completed. Reading, action steps and self-discovery exercises are all optional but highly recommended. You can take this course from anywhere in the world and there are no scheduled webinars that you must attend live. Once a week unlocks, you retain lifetime access, so don’t worry if you feel like you’re falling behind.
I lead twice weekly guided discussions in a private Facebook group to accompany that week’s lectures, and post at least one video FAQ each week that relates to the questions posed in the Facebook group that week. I also answer every question asked in the private Facebook group.
At the end of each week/module, there is an interactive quiz so you can test your understanding of that week’s content.
I teach every aspect of this course personally, including reading all your comments and answering all of your questions within the private Facebook group. If you don’t use Facebook, I encourage you to create a dummy account so you can access this aspect of the course. Previous students have consistently ranked the private Facebook group as one of their favorite aspects of the course. I hope you’ll join me!
