Get Pregnant Naturally

Jan 24, 2022

We’re digging into the AIP diet and what you need to know if you are TTC.

We get a lot of questions about the AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet and if it is right for fertility. As you may know, we specialize with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve and premature ovarian insufficiency.

Most people who come to me are eating a “clean” diet. They’ve made the generalized recommendations for fertility but it’s still not working.

We always suggest that both you and your partner start the elimination diet and then further tweak the diet with food sensitivity testing and then potentially an AIP diet if necessary.

But what if you have an autoimmune disease should you consider the AIP diet? Some studies have found that 1/5 of the time premature ovarian insufficiency is actually tied to autoimmunity.

We break down the exact steps to consider so that you don’t waste time on strategies that leave you further away from pregnancy success.


I'm excited to welcome Justine Altman back to the podcast.

Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.

Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with PCOS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.


In this episode you'll learn:

1) What is the AIP diet and when is it best used for someone with low AMH, high FSH and/or on the fertility journey

2) What the studies say about the AIP diet and autoimmune disease

3) The difference between paleo and AIP diet

4) What is the best duration for the AIP diet
