(12:20) Today's topic
As a parent, it can be very scary to navigate helping your child implement the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) when you have no experience with it yourself.
When you're taking care of a sick child, don't forget to take care of yourself because you need to be operating at your best to give the best care.
Laura asks: "This week we got a pretty shocking diagnoses that my 5 year old daughter, has a rare form of alopecia and is losing all of her hair. She’s lost about 30% in the last 10 days OUT OF NOWHERE. Yesterday we got results from extensive bloodwork testing just about everything and so far it all looks normal. We haven’t gotten celiac results back yet... So clearly with Alopecia she is having autoimmune issues causing her body to turn and attack her hair follicles. We have switched over immediately to a paleo diet and limiting eggs. As little as possible sugar and processed foods, no dairy, no gluten, no beans (? This one confuses me), limited organic chicken."Eating: Healthy fats, cooked veggies, berries, quality grass fed organic beef, Alaskan wild caught salmon, some tuna fish...She cries every meal, she misses her snacks and yummy food. I’m lost and just trying to keep up and do my best. Any healthy, ‘good for her cells’ snacks you think a 5 year old would enjoy indulging on? I’m so horrible at cooking but will get better! I know there are fun things to make, which cookbooks do I need? Any favorite snack bars? Tasty breakfast options?The doctors all say nothing can be done and there’s no cure but no one talks about diet, waking up early for the sunrise, healing the gut and mitochondria... I know these are all things that can help heal her. But I’m overwhelmed, stressed, a bit broken, emotional and mourning this diagnosis (yes, I know she’s not dying but I wish hair for my 5 year old, bow loving daughter who doesn’t understand what’s happening)."
Stacy says it sounds like alopecia is a secondary autoimmune disease and it's likely that Laura's daughter has a primary driver like Celiac's that could be causing an alopecia flare.
Sarah says it is possible for alopecia to be a primary driver, but confirms it's very common for alopecia to be a secondary autoimmune disease to Celiac, Type I Diabetes, or Rheumatoid arthritis. Alopecia is most commonly linked to Celiac's.
Alopecia is a fairly common autoimmune disease, affecting 2% of the population at some point in their lives. On set is most typically in childhood.
Alopecia is among group of autoimmune diseases that is considered "self limiting." It can flare up and then, out of nowhere, go away.
Alopecia is strongly linked to stress.

(25:30) Is AIP effective for alopecia?
It's hard to answer how effective the Autoimmune Protocol is for alopecia. There's mostly anecdotal evidence at this point.
There was a recent study testing AIP on people with Chronn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis and most were in full clinical remission after just 6 weeks.
There's currently a study in progress that tests AIPs effectiveness on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and Sarah will shout those results from the rooftops as soon as they're released!
At least 6 people with alopecia have shared their stories with Sarah. They've reported full ha
