Eating for Healing
with Mickey Trescott, NTP, author of The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen
Welcome to Thyroid Refresh TV!
In this episode, we speak with Mickey Trescott, certified nutritional therapy practitioner and author.
Mickey Trescott, NTP prides herself in finding creative solutions to preparing, cooking, and succeeding on allergen-free diets.
She is a certified nutritional therapy practitioner and author of the best-selling guide to the Autoimmune Protocol, The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook. With her partner Angie Alt, she co-authored The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook, an award-winning guide that teaches a whole-lifestyle approach to healing from autoimmune disease. Her newest release, The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen focuses on nutrient density, an often overlooked aspect to deep healing with food.
In 2012, Mickey founded AutoimmuneWellness.com, whose website and social media channels serve millions of readers annually with recipes and resources for living well with chronic illness.
With Angie Alt and Sarah Ballantyne, she co-created and co-teaches the AIP Certified Coach Practitioner Training Program, an advanced training for practitioners across the spectrum of both natural and conventional healthcare.
Join us as we chat with Mickey about her new cookbook, how to successfully implement AIP, and what inflammatory foods we should avoid.

I had transformed my whole life. I had gotten completely back on my feet. I’d gotten to the point where I felt healthier than I was since I was a teenager. And it started with changing my diet.
