2. How Does It Work?

The AIP diet focuses its work in the gut. By championing specific foods, the diet aims to decrease or eliminate inflammation by combating issues that arise in the gut. The condition known as "leaky gut" is associated with many issues related to inflammation and autoimmune disease. Certain foods can compromise the intestinal lining, allowing unwanted toxins, antigens, and bacteria to enter the bloodstream. The AIP diet recommends foods that minimize this occurrence.
