Hi, I’m Mickey, the blogger behind Autoimmune-Paleo. I work in Seattle, Washington as a personal chef and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
My journey to Autoimmune-Paleo started as a vegan, having recently being diagnosed with both Celiac and Hashimotos disease. I suffered through many months of deteriorating health until I finally gave in and introduced fish into my diet. From there, I made the transition to Paleo, slowly reversing vitamin and mineral deficiencies and greatly improving my health. That wasn’t the entire story, however, as I found the Autoimmune Protocol, which I credit with finally making me feel like a real person again. Lately I have been playing with a Weston A. Price approach as well as the GAPS diet, as I believe that working on my leaky gut is going to be the final piece in restoring my health.
I started this blog as a place to collect information about my wellness and diet interests, mostly involving autoimmune disease and ancestral health. I hope that I can share information that would be of benefit to those who are searching for ways to heal from chronic illness, as well as inspire people to make the changes they need to find healing.
In April of 2013, I released The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, which includes 112 recipes suitable for the autoimmune protocol, along with information about what to eat, tips and tricks, meal plans, shopping lists, and other ideas to make the protocol easier to implement.
I am available locally (Seattle, WA) for nutritional therapy consultations, cooking lessons and personal chef work. I also consult with clients via telephone and skype, specializing in the autoimmune protocol. I can help by making personal meal plans or recommendations specific to your situation.
