Hi, I’m Mickey, the blogger behind Autoimmune-Paleo. I work in Seattle, Washington as a personal chef and am studying to be a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner through the Nutritional Therapy Association. I also share allergy-friendly recipes on my food blog, Little Fig.
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.
