Symptoms don't go away by themselves or with a pill!
Conventional medicine has let us down. It often takes years to receive an autoimmune diagnosis. Once diagnosed, they can only offer harsh medication to suppress the symptoms. They tell you that autoimmune disease just happens sometimes and that food and lifestyle have nothing to do with it.
That is simply not true.
Food is medicine – or poison for some of us. There is a better way!
I know you have been frustrated, and isolated in dealing with this on your own. Now you don’t have to do this alone! And, you can feel better knowing you are addressing something that is within your control! Lifestyle factors like food, sleep, movement, stress management, and connections are areas that impact health in profound ways!
Functional Medicine is like being a good parent to your body!
Let's say you have a child who comes to you and is crying but you are always busy and just want them to stop crying. The crying is bothering you because you have things to do. What do you do to solve the problem of the crying child? You send them to their room, basically punish them for crying. The crying stops for you but not for the child. The symptom is temporarily quieted. But you never addressed the reason why the child was crying. This is an example of conventional medicine.
In conventional medicine if you have some symptom, they punish it with a medication to get rid of the symptom as fast as possible.
If you have elevated cholesterol and they punish it with a statin medication. Elevated blood sugar, punish it with metformin. Autoimmunity, suppress it or throw steroids at it.
As a Functional Medicine parent, you'd get to the root cause and find out why your child was crying.
Now in Functional Medicine, you are the parent who asks the child, "Why are you crying, tell me what is going on." Maybe you find out the child went to bed too late and is sleep deprived or it is late morning and she hasn't eaten breakfast yet or maybe her sibling hit her and she has something that hurts or that is in dis-ease.
You'd ask: is she getting enough sleep, is she eating enough nutrition to fuel her cells, is she keeping her immune system calm, is her stress level too high and not well managed, does she have healthy relationships around her that support her, is she being exposed to toxins that are hurting her? What is she being exposed to that is harmful and what is it she needs?
80% of people have food sensitivities and their bodies have been crying a long time.
80% or more of people who visit Functional Medicine practitioners have at least one, and often many more, food sensitivities and their bodies have been crying for a long time. Their body is saying, "My joints hurt, my back pain is terrible, my migraines are chronic, I haven't slept well in years, I'm constipated, I'm depressed and I can't think clearly."
Together we can use food, faith and these Functional Medicine principles to address the root-cause, not just the symptoms.
In Reboot with AIP, you'll learn the most effective way to get autoimmune symptoms under control by identifying and eliminating the root-cause so you can get back to living an active life with those you love in just a few weeks.
"All disease is caused by two primary factors. One, you're getting too many things you don't need. Two, you're not getting enough things you do need." Sidney Baker, MD, Yale Medical graduate, family practitioner, author of Detoxification and Healing, and founder of Defeat Autism Now!
Temporary elimination diets are the clear path to food freedom!
"I let go of the foods that do not serve me, I start consuming foods that leave me supercharged, and all of a sudden I have freedom from my suffering." Tom Maltere, MS, CN and Faculty Educator for the Institute for Functional Medicine

"I was diagnosed with celiac and inflammatory arthritis. I used to have to take the stairs one at a time. I couldn't do normal things like clean the house or yard work. I couldn't get through the day without needing a nap and even had a low grade fever for a year. I really thought I would just get worse and worse. I went through Dixie's AIP group program and figured out what I was eating that was contributing to inflammation. Now I feel so much better and can do things I couldn't before and more. It really helped me to have accountability with Dixie and I keep listening to her modules to keep it fresh in my mind. Now, for the first time in seven years, my inflammation markers are normal. My doctor said no one is doing as good as me! He even lowered my Plaquenil and said he would keep lowering it. This has been a turning point for me. I really thought I'd be on medication for the rest of my life." Talleri B.
Reboot with AIP is more than just learning about foods. We address the mental and emotional side of the journey, the cravings, the social aspect, how hormones play a role. Plus, you will get practical insights and keys to organizing for success. Get the encouragement you need along the way while implementing the lifestyle changes that work synergistically to support your health.
There is nothing worse than finishing a program and feeling like you didn’t have all the information. That is NOT the case with this. It is completely comprehensive.
Each module layers in a new phase to meet you where you are give you the support you need!
"Doctors tell you to eat better, but they don't have the time to help you. You really need someone, like Dixie, to help you, support you through the process and tell you how to do that. Health coaching was an important part of helping me make the changes I needed to make. The AIP program was organized, helped me more than anything else had, the videos were the best. " Carol F.

“I wanted help with the AIP program and especially reintroduction. I tried it on my own and wasn’t where I wanted to be. With Dixie’s help I’ve been able to discover what has been holding me back and move forward. This was so helpful to me. She encouraged me to be persistent and confident. I haven’t felt this good in years. The program well exceeded my expectations. I now have hope. That’s worth everything.” Ann B.

"I'm a former nurse. They don't teach you about food. I needed to put myself and my health first. The program helped me understand the damage my lifestyle has brought to me and understand what I needed to do to improve my health. In implementing AIP, I've had gradual weight-loss, my sinuses are better, joints don't hurt, my blood pressure is better, I sleep better and I just feel better overall!" Lyn B.
"Dixie, thank you so much for putting this together! I am very excited to do this and it is just what I needed for motivation and to help me stay on track!" Michelle M.
I am Dixie Mehrens, a Functional Medicine Certified, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, and an Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) Certified Coach. I use my personal and professional knowledge to teach you how to take charge of your health. I want you to feel empowered by this information and confident in what changes you need to make to best support your condition, calm symptoms, reenergize, and find a sustainable healthy future.
Over the years various symptoms would rise but each time I would see a conventional doctor and take a medication for it. No one ever asked what was causing these symptoms. It started with anxiety attacks that lead to depression. Then, hypothyroidism. Re-occurring infections – usually with rounds of antibiotics. Dental troubles. Long-term anemia. Poor sleep and insomnia. Fatigue. Debilitating fatigue. Digestive troubles. And, it continued to snowball.
I eventually ended up seeing a gastroenterologist and was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I wanted to know what caused it and how to prevent or reverse it. The doctor just wanted me to come back when I was worse to talk about medications that could suppress my symptoms. I wanted to know the root cause so I could make different choices and prevent the acceleration of the disease. The outlook for Crohn’s is grim. That was not the future I wanted for myself.
I began researching how foods can affect the body. I did an elimination diet to discover what foods might be immune system triggers for me. In doing that, I discovered numerous food sensitivities. I changed what I ate. This changed my life.
Nearly all the digestive issues I was having resolved themselves after avoiding the foods my body was reacting to and by taking steps to restore my gut. I then also sought the help of a Functional Medicine practitioner to help with the fine-tuning, supplementation and additional lab testing. I became myself again and got my energy and life back! But, it can be a difficult, long and sometimes lonely journey. It was really hard. That is what lead me into health coaching and creating this program.
Elimination food plans are the gold standard for identifying food intolerances and sensitivities. You know how your body feels! This teaches you how to listen to your body even more closely! And, this is what changed my life!
I designed this program after completing the AIP training program which was based on Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach, Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body. It was co-lead by The Autoimmune Wellness duo Mickey Trescott, NTP and Angie Alt, NTC, CHC.
I have added my own take on how to persevere, shift my mindset and lean on a higher power instead of willpower alone. I believe my mind, body, spirit approach targets the whole person! We cannot compartmentalize our faith away from what our body is doing! And, we need it to strengthen our resolve and remember why we are making the changes that we are making!
I hope you join me!
