What is the AIP Diet?

AIP diet, or autoimmune protocol, is a food-based approach designed to eliminate undesirable inflammation in the body in order to relieve signs of autoimmune disorders. An autoimmune disorder is any condition in which a person’s immune system falsely attacks and damages healthy cells and the most common feature of an autoimmune disease is inflammation. 

AIP diet is a very limiting eating plan with a goal to eliminate foods that can cause inflammation in your gut to reset the body’s immune system. The main aim of this diet is to treat a “leaky gut,” which is medically known as altered intestinal permeability. Autoimmune conditions may result from small holes that have developed in the intestines which allow food to leak into the body. This condition can cause your immune system to respond negatively. It is thought that when you eat only foods allowed in the AIP diet, you can help heal the leaky gut. This diet mainly promotes foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients. Also, it highlights food with omega-3 fatty acids.

This diet is especially beneficial for those with an autoimmune condition. Although autoimmune diseases cannot be cured, they can be put into remission and AIP diet attempts to reduce some of the symptoms of these conditions.

If you do the AIP diet, you must follow the restrictive eating plan for at least a number of weeks before you are allowed to add food that is not included in the AIP diet. While there are people who try the AIP diet only for a short period of time, others adopt it as their long-term lifestyle choices. Adding foods into your diet takes time as they should be introduced gradually in order to monitor whether you have any reactions to a certain food. If you notice a reaction, you need to remove it from your diet long-term. 

AIP diet is rich in meats and vegetables. The following are the type of foods you can eat:

  • Vegetables, except nightshades, such as peppers, potatoes, eggplants, and tomatoes
  • Meat and fish, if possible not factory raised
  • Coconut product, including coconut milk
  • Olive, avocado, and coconut oil
  • Fruits, but in small quantities
  • Honey or maple syrup, in small portions
  • Vinegar, including apple cider, red wine, and balsamic (as long as they do not contain added sugar)
  • Non-seed herbal teas
  • Fermented foods that do not contain dairy or dairy-free, such as kombucha, nondairy kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut.

There is a long list of foods you should avoid since the AIP diet is very restrictive. The foods you cannot eat on an AIP diet are:

  • Grains
  • Dairy products
  • Refined sugars
  • Processed foods
  • Legumes, including peanuts, soy, hummus, and beans
  • Industrially made seed oils, including canola oils and vegetable oils
  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds, which includes food you might not think are in this category like coffee, chocolate, and certain spices
  • Food thickeners and emulsifiers.

In addition, you should not consume alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and aspirin. Research also suggests that you should avoid blue-green algae since it can possibly stimulate the immune system.

Many people find the AIP diet hard to follow and tricky to stick to because it is very restrictive and sometimes even interferes with your daily lifestyle. However, you can try a modified AIP diet by removing fewer foods, usually food too high in fat and cholesterol. If you decide to follow the AIP diet, you will find that the benefits outweigh the burden of its restrictions. Since the diet focuses on healthy foods, your body will likely react positively.

Lets Talk About Blood Poisoning

Blood poisoning happens when bacteremia is present in the bloodstream or a serious infection in the blood, and not because of a poisonous substance in the blood. Blood poisoning is used to describe sepsis, septicemia, or bacteremia, which are serious health conditions that will need quick medical attention.


Blood poisoning happens when bacteria that cause infection in another part of the body enters the bloodstream, which is referred to as bacteremia or septicemia. Septicemia is the condition when you have bacteria in your blood and can lead to sepsis. Sepsis is a serious and severe condition that often is life-threatening if it is left untreated. However, any type of infection can cause sepsis, including bacterial, viral, or fungal. 

Bacteria can enter your bloodstream in numerous different ways, such as through wounds. This includes cuts, scrapes, and burns. It can also come from something serious like a kidney infection, or something as simple as a sinus infection. Since blood poisoning happens when bacteria get into your bloodstream in combination with another infection, you will not develop sepsis without having an infection.

Blood poisoning and sepsis can attack anyone. However, the risk is a lot higher for:

  • Older people, usually 65 years of age or older
  • People with a weakened immune system, including those with HIV/AIDS
  • Young children, especially those under the age of 1
  • People with chronic medical conditions, including diabetes, cancer, and leukemia
  • People who have just had surgery
  • People with poor dental hygiene or recently had dental work
  • People who use intravenous drugs like heroin.

Symptoms and Signs

The symptoms of blood poisoning are often similar to the symptoms of a cold, which leads people to think that the symptoms they are experiencing are not serious. If you have had surgery or dental work recently or you are recovering from a wound, you need to call your doctor immediately because the symptoms can signal blood poisoning.  The symptoms are:

  • Sudden fever with moderate to high temperature
  • Shivers and chills
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Rapid breathing
  • Weakness or low energy (usually in children)
  • Irritability
  • Increased heart rate or heart palpitations
  • Skin paleness

Additional or advanced symptoms that indicate life-threatening blood poisoning or sepsis include:

  • Extreme pain or discomfort
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Shock
  • Organ failure
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweaty skin or red spots on the skin that can grow larger and look like a purple bruise
  • Almost no urine production.

Blood poisoning can result in septic shock or respiratory distress syndrome. If your condition is not treated immediately, it can be dangerous and can even lead to death.


Blood poisoning is usually difficult to diagnose by yourself because the symptoms mimic other conditions. The best way to know if you suffer from the condition is to see a doctor. Your doctor will perform a series of physical examinations, including checking your temperature and blood pressure. Then, if your doctor suspects blood poisoning, tests to look for signs of bacterial infection will be performed. These tests usually include blood culture testing, blood oxygen levels, blood count, urine tests, chest X-ray, clotting factor, and kidney function tests. Your doctor may also do an imaging scan, such as an X-ray, MRI scan, ultrasound, and CT scan. If bacteria are present in your blood, your doctor will identify the type. If you recently experience a cut or other wounds, your doctor may swab the area to collect bacteria. Identifying the type of bacteria will help your doctor decide which antibiotic to clear the infection.


Prompt treatment of blood poisoning is vital since the infection can spread to tissues or heart valves at a rapid pace. The treatment usually involves admission to an intensive care unit (ICU) in order to closely monitor your organ systems as well as giving you intravenous antibiotics and other medicines. You may be given oxygen intravenously to maintain your blood pressure.

It is crucial for you to strictly follow your doctor’s treatment plan to get a higher chance of a full recovery. The earlier the condition is treated, the greater your chance to survive. Most people with mild sepsis can make a full recovery without any lasting complications. However, even when the treatment is successful, the condition can still lead to permanent damage and you have a greater risk of future infections.

Paleo Diet: What is it and Why is it so Popular?

The Paleo diet is one of the most popular diets in the world, as well as one of the most controversial ones. The paleo diet is also referred to as the Paleolithic diet, Stone Age diet, hunter-gatherer diet, or caveman diet, is an eating plan based on foods that resembled a prehistoric man in Paleolithic era might have eaten. It might be impossible to know exactly what they ate in different parts of the world all those years ago, but researchers believe they ate whole foods that people could hunt or gather which included fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, herbs, eggs, seeds, and nuts. 

Modern farming has changed the way people eat. Since the development of modern agriculture, dairy products, grains, and legumes have become an essential part of many people’s daily meals. An idea known as the Discordance Hypothesis stated that the reason for this diet is that the human body has not yet evolved to processes modern diet that began with farming practices. According to the hypothesis, the human body is genetically mismatched to the modern diet and the rapid change in people’s diet outpaced the body’s capability to adapt. Consuming processed foods can possibly increase the risk of numerous medical conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Advocates of the paleo diet believe that by following a whole-food-based diet and having a physically active life, hunter-gatherers have fewer health problems than a modern human who eats fully processed foods. 

Many people follow a paleo diet because of the benefit it offers, the diet is believed to help people lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. According to several studies, this diet can result in significant weight loss as well as major improvements in health. The diet is also said to improve glucose tolerance, lower triglycerides, as well as improved blood pressure control. However, it is important to know that this diet is not safe for everyone. Its effects on older adults, pregnant women, or children are still largely unknown. People who suffer from chronic conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease should consult a doctor before trying a paleo diet.

There are various recommendations out there on what to include in a paleo diet. Paleolithic humans lived on a variation of foods, which mainly was dependent on what was available and where they lived. There were people who ate a low-carb diet with lots of animals, but there were also people who consume a high-carb diet with a huge quantity of plants. The simplest guideline to paleo diets is if it looks like the food is made in a factory, avoids it. The following is a general guideline on paleo diets.

What you can eat:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Lean meats (people who follow a paleo diet usually choose grass-fed animals because these meats are the least processed)
  • Fish, particularly those rich in omega-3 fatty acids
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Oils that come from fruits and nuts, such as coconut oil, almond oil, and olive oil.

What to avoid on the paleo diet:

  • Legumes, including lentils, peanuts, peas, and beans.
  • Dairy products, especially low-fat dairy.
  • Salt.
  • Grains, such as barley, oats, and wheat.
  • Refined sugar.
  • Artificial sweetener, including aspartame, cyclamates, saccharin, and sucralose. You can use natural sweeteners as a substitute.
  • Trans fats, usually called either “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” and can be found in margarine and numerous other processed foods.
  • Highly processed foods, which are everything with “low-fat” and “diet” on the label, or anything that has various additives.

If you are following this diet, you should also drink plenty of water. Some people may drink black coffee or green tea, but do not drink any soft drinks and juices with added sugar. Another necessary part of the paleo lifestyle is getting regular exercise. 

A lot of people are wondering about the dietary concerns of paleo diets. A paleo diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, and nuts, which are the elements of a healthy diet. What makes paleo diet very different from other healthy diets is the absence of dairy products, which are good sources of calcium and protein, as well as the lack of whole grains and legumes that are considered as good sources of fiber, vitamins, as well as other nutrition. This can mean that paleo diets have some hidden dangers. For example, dairy restrictions can lead to deficiencies in vitamin D and calcium, which is critical to the health of your bones. Besides, dairy products and grains are normally more affordable than foods that you can eat in paleo diets. Therefore, a paleo diet can be too expensive for some people. 

The bottom line is, while a paleo diet can help you lose weight or maintain your already healthy weight, it also brings more beneficial health effects. Nevertheless, you can achieve the same benefits by leading an active life and eating a balanced diet with a lot of vegetables and fruits.

I Am So Tired-Fatigue

Have you ever worked throughout the day and noticed that you are lacking in energy and not motivated to do any activity? If you say yes, would you say you are tired, fatigued or exhausted? Or do you believe that those three words are the same? Keep calm with your cup of black coffee or unsweetened tea (these are wonderful energy boosters!) in hand as we take a ride through the world of fatigue. 

Tiredness, fatigue, and exhaustion are words with different meanings. A person is tired when you are in a state of needing sleep or rest. There would be some energy in you but the muscles are weak, and you are forgetful and impatient and a good night rest will get rid of the tiredness.

Different from the symptoms of tiredness, exhaustion is the physical depletion after exercise. People who are exhausted exhibit emotional numbness, social withdrawal, sudden loss of energy, dizziness, and are very sleepy.

Fatigue, on the other hand, is a lack of energy and motivation and people who suffer from fatigue display a decrease in stamina, anxiety and have sleeping difficulties, heightened sensitivity to light, as well as difficulty concentrating. 

Fatigue has various causes. Diseases are some of the causes of fatigue. In Anemia, a condition in which you do not have enough red blood cells, fatigue is one of its symptoms. Vitamin C used with iron supplements helps to improve the symptom. Ulcer, cancer, depression, and loss of sleep could also result in fatigue.

The other causes are heart and lung-related diseases, sleeping problems, drug abuse, grief, alcohol abuse, anxiety, antidepressant drugs, malaria, influenza, tuberculosis, HIV infection, obesity, chemotherapy, and diabetes.

In situations of chronic fatigue, it is severe and chronic fatigue lasting up to six months or more is accompanied by most of these symptoms – sore throat, tender lymph nodes, lack of concentration and no energy after sleep, severe headaches, and short term memory. 

The cause of chronic fatigue is unknown. However, some researchers say it is caused by a viral infection suspected to be the Epstein-Barr viruses, mouse leukemia, or human herpesvirus 6. Others believe it is psychological stress. Chronic fatigue can occur at any age, and more in women than men. It does not improve with rest and its solution involves finding out the cause.

Treatment of fatigue varies. Doctors would run a series of tests to know the underlying factor causing fatigue or check the history of the person affected. Are they always fatigued after long hours of work? Is lack of sleep the reason for the fatigue? When the cause of the fatigue is realized, this would determine the mode of treatment.

Generally, non-chronic fatigue is easy to treat. There are foods that are good for treatment. Fatigue has to do with the body and the body performs based on what it is being fed on. 

Foods without preservatives (freezing, pasteurizing, refrigerating), artificial ingredients (food color, sweeteners, flavors), processed foods (canned foods), fresh fruits, vegetables, non caffeinated beverages (black coffee), lean proteins (chicken, fish, turkey), cashew nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, salt-free foods, and lots of water (not sugary drinks) are good for fatigue.   

By now, you should be able to tell whether what you feel is tiredness, exhaustion or fatigue after a long day at work. Tiredness, exhaustion, and fatigue are better distinguished by symptoms associated with each term. There are different ways of restoring health from fatigue which largely depends on the cause. Feeding your body with good foods is, however, one of the fastest ways to cure fatigue. 

Depression And You

Depression is more common in women than in men and is one of the most common illnesses worldwide. All over the world, around 350 million people are affected by depression, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say 7.6 percent of people above the age of 12 are depressed at least once in a two-week interval. 

Those who have never experienced depression do need to be educated as to what depression really is, what are the causes and symptoms and how it can be treated. Going by the World Health Organization meaning, depression is “a common mental disorder, characterized by persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities that you normally enjoy, accompanied by an inability to   daily activities, for at least two weeks.”

One of the signs that point to the start of depression is the loss of ability to carry out normal daily activities for longer than two weeks. The other symptoms of depression are a loss of energy, thoughts of self-harm, hopelessness, insomnia (lack of sleep), sleeping more, loss of appetite, indecisiveness, restlessness, anxiety, and lack of concentration, slow movement, and speech. Where any of the above symptoms persist, there is a need to see a doctor.

Doctors around the world have studied depression and conducted research on the cause of it. The causes are not fully understood but results have shown that family history, environment, biological changes in neurotransmitter levels, psychological and social factors all lead to depression.

A person has a tendency to been depressed when a first-degree relative suffered depression. A first-degree relative includes a mother and a father. Because of the close affinity proximity, there is a likelihood of any first-degree relative to suffer from depression.

Biological change in neurotransmitter levels is an imbalance of brain chemicals. A neurotransmitter is a chemical sent from the brain to communicate with the other parts of itself and the nervous system. The imbalance in neurotransmitters also amounts to depression.

There are some risk factors that trigger the occurrence of any of the aforementioned causes. Relationship issues, financial instability, divorce, bereavement, medical conditions that are chronic diseases, childhood trauma, family issues, work-related problems, amphetamines, abuse of drugs – such as corticosteroids, interferon – abuse of alcohol, past injury on the head, relapse of depression having had a previous history of it.

There are various types of Depression and they are unipolar depression and bipolar depression. Unipolar depression is been in a continuous state of unhappiness, loss of strength, hopelessness, and sadness. People are more acquainted with this form of depression as the signs are easier to identify, unlike bipolar depression. 

Bipolar depression also known as bipolar disorder is intermittent periods of high energy and depression. The two moods swings by a person can be deceiving and difficult to quickly identify whether such a person is suffering from depression or not. 

With these two types of disorders, there is the possibility of having suicidal thoughts or other thoughts of self-harm. This is why it is important to remain in constant communication with loved ones and if depression is noticed, look to seek help and treatment.

Psychotherapy and antidepressant medications are used in treating depression. Psychotherapy involves having a heart-to-heart conversation by a depressed patient and a psychotherapist. The conversation can be carried out face-to-face, on the phone, or even through video. These methods are often used in mild cases of depression and as the first treatment option. It can also be used with other treatment options such as antidepressant medications.

Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) believes that antidepressant medications may increase suicidal thoughts in children and young adults in the first few months of use, antidepressant medications still stand as a viable means of treating depression. However, self-medication is strongly prohibited. If any signs of irrational behavior are noticed during the use of antidepressant drugs, a doctor should be contacted.

Depression can be spotted and treated when people have the right information regarding it and is also treatable by visiting an expert doctor and it is vital to always keep in touch with family and friends and share one’s problems to reduce the risks of depression.

Let’s talk about Lupus

When the immune system malfunctions there are two different types of reactions that are observed. One is where the body lacks the ability to fight infections which occurs due to a weak immune system. This leads to frequent illnesses. And the other major type of immune system malfunctioning is where the immune system is overactive and attacks the body’s own cells similar to fighting pathogens. This damages the cells and leads to inflammation, swelling, rashes, and other symptoms. This condition is called an autoimmune disorder. There are various types of autoimmune disorders and Lupus is one among them.

Types of Lupus

  • Neonatal Lupus – this is where the antibodies from the mother’s body are transferred to the fetus in the womb. This causes the baby to be born with Lupus characterized by rashes on the skin and lowered blood cells.
  • Cutaneous Lupus – as the name indicates this one occurs on the cutaneous layer or attacks the skin. Rashes might appear with raised edges or even appear scaly.
  • Systematic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) – this is the most commonly occurring types of lupus. These target specific organs like the kidney. And there are rashes, joint pain, and other such effects.
  • Drug-induced lupus erythematosus (DIL) – this is the type of lupus that is caused as the side effect of some drugs. Symptoms continue to worsen until the drug administration is continued. In most of the cases stopping the medication can put an end to this type of lupus.

Risk factors

  • Women are known to be at higher risk for developing lupus than men of similar age group
  • Caucasians are less likely to acquire lupus while people of color are more vulnerable to it.
  • Lupus is likely to occur in those in the 15 to 44 age group.
  • If you have a family history the chances are slightly high for you to develop lupus.


The genes have a prominent role to play when it comes to the occurrence of such autoimmune diseases. There are 50 different genes that are said to increase the risks of lupus and so if you have one or more of these genes then you are at risk. Hereditary factors slightly increase the chances but if there is one member who has it that doesn’t always mean that the genes are passed down. There are several environmental factors associated with this condition as well. Prolonged exposure to UV rays, certain types of infections and drugs can all lead to lupus. Finally, even the hormones in the body have a role to play. These are essential for keeping the immune system functioning normally. A surge in the levels of specific hormones could also lead to the malfunctioning of the immune system.


Rashes might be the most prominent symptoms associated with lupus. These are not always itchy. There are butterfly-shaped rashes that are prone to occur on the face. Such distinct rashes send the first warning signals. Besides these, exhaustion, dryness in the eyes, pain in the joints and even headaches are common in those with lupus. For a more detailed look at the symptoms and to see real examples, watch this video:

Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases

When you are experiencing chronic stress the visible signs start showing only when the condition gets worse. The effects of stress can be felt by your physical health and mental health. It can also weaken your immune system. The natural process is that your body’s immune system fights pathogens and foreign agents so as to initiate quicker recovery. But when the response action is taken against your body’s own cells then it is called an autoimmune disorder. This is the condition where instead of protecting your body from diseases the immune system causes diseases of different types. There are various triggers that can lead to different autoimmune disorder conditions. Inflammatory bowel disease or IBD, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, diabetes mellitus- Type I, myasthenia gravis are all types of autoimmune conditions. Depending on the type of autoimmune disease you experience your body might be sending out different signals. Know the risk factors and the symptoms so that you can identify and get treatment for autoimmune diseases at an early stage. This will make treatment simpler and more effective.

Here are some of the risk factors commonly linked to autoimmune diseases-

  • Women are at a higher risk of acquiring autoimmune diseases than men.
  • There are some types of autoimmune disorders that are also known to be hereditary. So if you have a family history then make sure that you look out for any warning sign.
  • Most of the autoimmune diseases target the younger generation and the middle-aged.  
  • Certain types of infections and even some medications can make your body more vulnerable to autoimmune diseases.

Below are the common symptoms that should send a red flag and grab your attention. If you notice any of these symptoms have a word with your Doctor to carry out the appropriate diagnostic procedure.

  • Pain in the joints should never be ignored. Sometimes you might experience pain after strenuous activities. But the pain that does not get better with rest and the pain increases or keeps coming back might indicate an early stage of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
  • If your skin suddenly appears too sensitive, if you notice rashes on your skin and if the rash appears often then it could indicate issues with your immune system. These have been cases where you might notice that even short exposure to sunlight causes burns and blemishes.
  • Unexplained fatigue which is persistent could indicate an onset of autoimmune disease.
  • Muscle pains, swelling and soreness accompanied by redness could also be triggered when your immune system is causing unwanted inflammation in an area where no injury had occurred.

Based on the type of autoimmune disease that the body is experiencing two or more of the above symptoms can occur. The severity of the symptoms might indicate the severity of the condition. So if you experience any of these signals get your body diagnosed to ensure that your immune system is healthy.

Lupus Is A Systemic Autoimmune Disease

The body is working on the basis of different types of elements. Some organs or elements are working by fulfilling the requirements, and some are fighting for it. If we talk about the protector of the body, then the immune system is playing that particular role.

It strengthens the body and helps in fighting against various diseases or serious infections. The lupus is a kind of specific disease which affects the body immune system. When the immune system gets affected, then the body starts facing lots of issues.

Know more

Mainly the disease creates confusion for the immune system by which it starts affecting the health instead of protecting it. When it comes to lupus, then there are different types of diseases are covered under the group. From all the diseases, if we talk about the common one, then SLE appears.
