With the approach of the New Year, I know many of my readers will be taking stock of their health and considering how it might improve in 2018. For many of you, that might mean dedicating to the Autoimmune Protocol, or AIP. And these AIP programs are here to help!
What exactly is the AIP? The Autoimmune Protocol is a specialized version of the Paleo diet, with an even greater focus on nutrient density and even stricter guidelines for which foods should be eliminated. The biggest difference between a standard Paleo diet and the Autoimmune Protocol is where we draw the line between “yes” foods and “no” foods in order to get more health-promoting compounds and fewer detrimental compounds in our diet. Those who are typically quite healthy can tolerate less-optimal foods than those who aren’t. You can think of the Autoimmune Protocol as a pickier version of the Paleo diet; it accepts only those foods that are clear winners.
Sound daunting? Once you get the hang of it, it’s certainly worth it. But to help you get the hang of it, these programs from my friends in the AIP community can really come in handy! Each one of these AIP programs is geared towards different needs, which is amazing because it means that you can choose the right support for you.
Now is the perfect time to invest in yourself with one of these AIP programs because they’re all discounted for a short period of time (including my own AIP Lecture Series, which is 30% off only until December 13!). Read more about each program to help you choose the best program for your individual needs, challenges and goals!

SAD to AIP in 6
If you’re feeling run-down, exhausted or just plain overwhelmed by the holiday season, it might finally be time to tackle your health in the New Year. If have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition or other chronic illness, following the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) can expedite healing. But don’t worry if the AIP sounds hard, because my friend Angie’s outstanding program SAD to AIP in SIX is here to support you!
The SAD to AIP in SIX is a group coaching program designed to gently guide you and a group of your peers through a gradual transition to the AIP in six weeks.

My AIP Program: The AIP Lecture Series
The Autoimmune Protocol Lecture Series is my new 6-week video-based, self-directed online course that will teach you the scientific foundation for the diet and lifestyle tenets of the Autoimmune Protocol.
The AIP Lecture Series features:
- 42 video lectures (totaling 16 hours!), all taught by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD (that’s me!)
- 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
- recommended reading for every topic
- interactive quizzes to test your knowledge
The AIP Lecture Series doesn’t shy away from teaching important scientific concepts. I firmly believe that understanding how foods affect our health on 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.
This amazing online course is on sale now for $287 (compared to comparable programs being sold for $499 or more!). But, if you register for the course right now, you can get an early bird discount, the whole course for only $197!
