FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR SYMPTOMS?
FINALLY feel normal again by using the AIP Diet and Lifestyle- without it taking all of your time and energy
Ever wonder why some people…
….seem to be able to do the AIP Diet and feel better without spending hours every day in the kitchen?
Or how they aren’t BORED TO DEATH with the same limited amount of ingredients?
And how those same people also never seem to have debilitating flare-ups of their symptoms after that?
They don’t have some super exclusive magic powers –
– they just have the proven shortcuts and time-saving hacks to successfully do the AIP Diet without it taking up too much time.
They also have the knowledge and tools to stay in control of their diet and life during reintroductions and AFTER the AIP Diet.
Too many people fail in their quest to feel better using AIP – but this doesn’t have to be you.
Living with the symptoms of an autoimmune disease is tough
Just taking a shower can wipe you out, you might have excruciating pain just getting out of bed, and you may have fear EVERY time you go out that you’ll have an urgent need to find a bathroom.
If you’re like me, you’re probably feeling frustrated and defeated…
You’ve maybe put your whole life on hold, and tell yourself things will get better when you start feeling better.
But every day is more of the same (or worse) and you start wondering how long you can keep this up, right?
You somehow came across AIP as a solution that has helped so many others going through the same thing and wonder if it could help you too, but it’s… hard.
With the way you’re feeling you probably think there’s no way you can cook all of those meals each day, especially if you don’t know if it’ll work – or last.
Or maybe you’ve even tried it before and failed, so you really aren’t sure if you’re cut out for doing this.
But see, most people think they have to spend hours cooking every meal from scratch while on AIP, but the truth is…
It doesn’t have to be hard!
….you’ve just never been shown the methods and tools that cut this time down significantly, give you motivation to do and stay on AIP, AND help you to feel good long after AIP.
Don’t worry – it’s NOT your fault. Most people are never taught these!
However, if you don’t get these, you run the risk of completely burning out doing the AIP Diet – and where will that leave you with your symptoms and quality of life?
The easier way…
The right methods and tools don’t just save time. They also:
Account for brain fog
Oh man, trying to read some of the intricate instructions for recipes or super scientific explanations of WHY you’re doing this while feeling like you’re wading through marshmallows? It’s impossible! The right instructions and explanations will be written (or recorded) with this in mind
Account for YOUR energy and pain
While sure, you might get a ton done in a 3-hour meal prep session, who has the energy or tolerance for that? Processes need to fit your needs.
And don’t get me started on exercise – so many “experts” out there have no idea about autoimmune exercise intolerance and are actually recommending workouts that make things so much worse. Exercise needs to support you, not work against you
Recognize that you're a WHOLE person
The autoimmune disease journey can be lonely and fraught with frustration and stress. But if you have the support and tools that help you address everything from what you eat to your unpleasant emotions to those pesky sugar cravings, you’ll be so much better off than if you just pay attention to food.
Prevent the need for repeated or further restrictions
Getting to a state where you feel great again is wonderful. But if you don’t watch some key critical areas, you may find yourself right back where you started, and sometimes worse. The right tools, however, will help you to avoid this nasty cycle. My goal is for you to do AIP once, not several times.
What if this could be your last stop?
You’ve been passed from specialist to specialist. Tried prescription after prescription. Read book after book. Invested in resource after resource.
Let’s make this your last stop.
I won’t just show you how to make AIP easier;
I’ll teach you the skills to maintain your symptom relief and support your autoimmune health for the long run.
The Autoimmune Collective isn’t just another AIP meal plan program.
…It’s a 3-Phase TRANSFORMATIONAL PROCESS that will change you…
From a frustrated and sick autoimmune sufferer who has little quality of life to a confident, great-feeling AUTOIMMUNE THRIVER who has control over your disease
- Step-by-step meal prep guides, hundreds of easy recipes, dump-and-go freezer meal plans and more - so that you can get AIP food onto your table with little thought or effort
- Coaching and tools to optimize your sleep, exercise, and stress levels so that your body can focus on healing
- Community and support from others serious about using diet and lifestyle to get freedom from their autoimmune diseases
- Tools to find and fix the hidden thoughts that might cause you to cheat, self-sabotage, or give up -and if not addressed, will most certainly work against your efforts to feel, and stay, better
It’s time to give your body (the only one you have) the nourishment it deserves!
Why not do so in a way that is a LOT easier than doing it on your own?
Just like it’s done for our members:
“Made it possible for me to have compliant meals even when I am too tired or weak to cook!”
“Michele Spring’s Autoimmune Collective has made a huge difference in my AIP journey. I knew that AIP would help with my severe and debilitating illness but it was difficult to find the energy to start let alone stay with it. The Autoimmune Collective changed all that. The start guide, the hundreds of easy, make ahead recipes, the tips, and ideas have made it possible for me to have compliant meals even when I am too tired or weak to cook. It is more than just foods though. In easy to accomplish ways Michele brings together meditation, relaxation, and other necessary healing modalities that has helped me to make the changes I needed to begin to heal. The added support of a community of caring people, including Michele herself, makes this an ideal AIP online home. “
“The recipes and videos were very informative and supportive when you’re so overwhelmed”
“I was in misery. My Hashimotos was out of control and I had leaky gut. But the recipes and videos were very informative and supportive when you’re so overwhelmed. I found lots of food I didn’t know existed and lifestyle changes to help with the healing process. It is so worth it!”
“Made this much easier than it would otherwise have been!”
“Since joining The Autoimmune Collective, my path of healing has been helped tremendously. Having trustworthy resources of nutrition (recipes, meal prep, the diet itself, reintroductions, etc.), and stress and rest management at my fingertips is such an important part of this journey. Having a community of people has been a lifeline in my success thus far. And having Michele — so helpful, knowledgeable, and caring — has truly been made this much easier than it would otherwise have been. It’s been such a great investment in my journey to healing.”
The 3-Phase Framework to Thriving With Your Autoimmune Disease
When you join The Autoimmune Collective, you’ll get lifetime access to the member’s portal where you’ll learn how to move seamlessly through the following phases, experiencing real, tangible progress along the way.
Going through these three phases is the BEST way to gain control over your disease.
When you’ve gone through these, you’ll FINALLY have the key ingredients you need to get back the quality of your life, do the things you love without worry….pain….lack of energy… or the fear you’ll have to run to the bathroom….and feel like your disease is just background noise.
““I was having a very difficult time coming up with ideas for meals and couldn’t seem to focus enough to come up with something on my own. I have AIP cookbooks, but I usually end up without ingredients, etc.
If I take the weekend to plan my meals for the week ahead, then I am successful. After reviewing your website over and over, I came to the conclusion that I really needed the simplicity of someone doing the legwork for me. I love the detailed plans and instructions. I even love the labels you provide to place on my freezer meals. When I utilize your website, it calms me down because I don’t have to really think about what I’m going to eat.””
Optimize Your Diet
You know how a vacation rejuvenates you? Doing the AIP Diet is like a vacation for your body.
Using this amazing healing protocol, you’ll get out of survival mode and finally give your body a rest from the constant triggers. This will allow the inflammation to settle down, your gut tissue to repair, nutrients to finally be absorbed, and stop your immune system from being on overdrive. And that will allow your immune system to stop attacking your organ tissues. Phew!
All of this may lead to you possibly getting off of, reducing, or avoiding medications, reducing antibodies, stopping symptoms, and, best of all, feeling NORMAL again.
In this phase, we’ll make it oh so much easier by giving you:
- Step-by-step AIP meal prep guides that make the best use of your time and energy and get your fridge and freezer stocked with easily accessible meals
- Hundreds of simple and quick AIP recipes that taste great (family-approved!)
- Dump-and-go freezer meal plans that require NO cooking before freezing! (Get your freezer stocked with 7 AIP meals in an hour!)
- Meal prep mini-course to learn ALL of the tips and tricks to cut down on time and effort
- Incredibly helpful cooking demonstration videos - see how it's done!
- Tools to overcome cravings, avoid temptations (without resorting to willpower), and choose the right foods for you
I believe eating an AIP diet should TASTE good – not just be good for your body. I want you to love eating this way and not have it feel like a punishment. Plus it also shouldn’t take over your life – leave meal time at meal time and spend the rest of your time doing what you love!
“I have had a recent diagnosis of Grave’s disease and was feeling exhausted by all the cooking etc.
I thought about buying a cookbook to help me get new ideas and keep things feeling fresh, but when I read about the collective, and figured I would give it a try. Your recipes are great. Down to earth. I have a family. I don’t always have the fancy ingredients kind of style. Freezer dump meals!!! I’m not nearly as stressed about dinner. I have 3 of your meals in the freezer right now in the event I’m not wanting to cook something different one night. So I say if you are looking for practical, real world help from a woman who feels like she should just be your neighbor, try it out.”
Optimize Your Lifestyle
If your body is constantly in a stress-induced fight-or-flight mode, it simply cannot absorb nutrients, repair tissue, regulate your immune system, or any of the numerous other tasks needed to feel better. If you don’t get out of this, you’ll never find out how great you can feel and may be completely working against your diet efforts.
Unfortunately stress isn’t JUST stress as we know it, like from deadlines or being stuck in traffic. It’s also from things like not getting enough or the right quality of sleep or too much or too little exercise.
In this phase you’ll discover:
- The easiest ways to stop feeling so overwhelmed all the time - use these and you'll feel way less stressed today!
- The BEST exercises for autoimmune disease - that won't make you flare (and you'll get to try them!)
- How to get better sleep (without taking a pill!) + tools to help you sleep better
- The most effective methods for YOU personally to de-stress, sleep, get energized, deal with headaches, and exercise
This section also features the Lifestyle Lab – a playground of sorts where you can experiment to find out the modalities that work best for you in many different situations, whether it’s a guided meditation, EFT tapping, sound baths, hypnosis audios, exercises like Qi Gong, microworkouts, breathing techniques, and more. (Yoga coming in Q2 of 2023!)
We’ve got it all and you’re free to try them at your convenience and in the comfort of your home.
These are all targeted towards someone with autoimmune disease and take into account autoimmune disease-related exercise intolerance, so you don’t have to worry about getting workouts from someone who has no idea what special considerations need to be taken!
I love the easy make-ahead recipes and the hypnosis audios. The recipes made it super easy for my family to adapt to the change in our diet. The hypnosis audios just freaking work and has helped me overcome challenges that were taxing my will-power.
Optimize Your Mind
Once you’ve dialed in your diet and lifestyle it’s time to look at the most important thing – your mind! Why?
According to the National Science Foundation, an average person has somewhere between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts in a day. Yet they say that 80% of those thoughts are negative – and 95% of them are repetitive!
And the worst part? You’re probably only aware of a small fraction of those thoughts. We live our lives on autopilot!
Unfortunately, if you don’t uncover and address your negative thought patterns, habits, and emotions, you’re almost guaranteed to go right back to where you started – which will leave you sick, frustrated, and dealing with those defeating symptoms again. Then you’ll either have to do AIP again or go chasing down another diet or solution that probably won’t work either. (Because you’re still having the same thoughts or doing the same habits!)
So in this phase, we dig deep into the topics that commonly keep people plateaued with their success, reverting right back to their triggers, and unable to continue the diet and lifestyle changes that will help them feel better.
You’ll get the tools you need to help solidify the new, supportive thoughts, habits, mindset shifts, and emotions you need to thrive.
Inside this phase you’ll discover:
- Those sneaky hidden thoughts that may be causing you to stray from AIP or cheat on reintroductions and preventing you from feeling better (and how to correct it)
- The PROVEN formula to stop bad habits & create lasting good ones
- How to bounce back from anything - and be stronger for it
- The keys to long term success with your disease
- The simple strategies to let go of fear, grief about your disease, resentment about what you can and cannot eat
… and so much more!
PLUS – TO HELP YOU THROUGH ALL OF IT!
Don’t face doing AIP and your whole autoimmune journey alone. The community in the Autoimmune Collective gets what you’re going through. They too suffer from the silent symptoms that no one else can see and know it’s NOT all in your head.
They also know what it’s like to need that support when you just want to gorge on all the pizza and forget this diet ever existed. Because it WILL happen, but we want you to succeed just as much as you do. You can come to us and get that pep talk or whatever it is you need to keep going.

Bonus # 4 Office Hours Calls
If you have doubts, fears, or uncertainties about successfully doing AIP, these interactive LIVE calls with Michele will be for you!
Come any time during the hour and ask your questions, just like you were stepping into my office.
“It has made it easy to stay on AIP and be accountable.”
“I got a new diagnosis of another autoimmune disorder so wanted to try AIP. I have been celiac for years so I ate a strict gluten free diet. I was excited to join and learn more about AIP. There are many things I love about it. So much information at my fingertips. It has made it easy to stay on AIP and be accountable. I have seen most of my symptoms greatly reduced in 3 months! “
“The support is amazing!”
“I feel now that I belong to a group that’s going through what it takes to live with a plethora of autoimmune diseases and addressing them head on. The support is amazing! I know this sounds weird but it’s actually fun and I look forward to all the new info.”
In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Michele…
In 2014, after a long downhill trend with my two autoimmune diseases, Hashimoto’s and Celiac, I wound up so exhausted that I could barely get off the couch to play with my kids, be a useful, contributing employee at work because my brain fog was so bad, and just enjoy life. I suffered from a myriad of other unpleasant symptoms and was scared that I was going to get stuck like that for the rest of my life. I had completely forgotten what “normal” felt like.
My doctor had basically given up on me, telling me that it probably was all in my head because the thyroid medication he had me on was “literally the only thing that would work.”
Not being satisfied with that answer nor with my quality of life – I searched until I found the AIP Diet.
Not going to lie…. it was hard.
Back then there were hardly ANY recipes available. I missed bread, Starbucks, eggs, and cheese like no one’s business, and I felt like cooking for it was my full-time job. Yet…
…after only a few short weeks I had amazing results, so I stuck with it and wound up feeling better than I had in over 15 years!
I wish I could say that was the end of my incredible transformation, but unfortunately, I quickly learned that if you don’t address the OTHER areas of your life, like chronic stress, poor sleep, too much or too little exercise, and the negative thought patterns that cause you to self-sabotage, eat foods that you don’t tolerate, and hold onto bad habits, that you can wind up sick again.
A few years later I found myself in the midst of a really bad flare-up of my symptoms, frustrated that I had let it come to that. I was also REALLY resistant to doing AIP again. I knew that it would help me, but man, I did not want to give up my coffee, nor did I want to spend so much time cooking just to have bland, boring meals. That’s when I got to thinking that “hey, you’re a recipe blogger – why don’t YOU come up with some easy recipes that taste good and ways to do this diet that don’t require 475 hours a week in the kitchen?”
“Make it so you wouldn’t hesitate to do the AIP diet again if you needed to – and then figure out how to STAY healthy!”
So that’s how The Autoimmune Collective came about, and why I continually add recipes and easy ways to do this diet.
I also spent the next few years researching and experimenting with all kinds of stress-relief modalities, exercise types, mindset techniques and more, so that I could maintain my health and not get stuck back in my old ways that would make me sick again.
I started telling people how much these other aspects were helping me and everyone started asking if I could share what I was doing with them too.
As soon as I did, the transformations in their health were astounding!
That’s why I also continually add new lifestyle and mindset aspects to The AIC – I share what WORKS so that you don’t have to go through years of fruitless experimentation and research like I did!
So now it’s time for you to make one of two choices.
The first choice is to try all of this AIP Diet and autoimmune healing stuff on your own.
And as you already know, that takes a lot of time to find meal ideas you want to eat, not knowing if they’ll take a lot of time and effort, not to mention actually cooking the meals. And it doesn’t address what truly happens during the reintroduction process or even AFTER AIP.
BUT… if you already know that you want to hit the Easy button on AIP, get the tools to optimize your lifestyle and mindset so that you can be in control over your disease, and take advantage of support from live Office Hours and our amazing non-judgemental community?
Then the choice is obvious: join us inside The Autoimmune Collective and start your transformation to becoming a thriving autoimmune warrior!
But CHOOSE quickly!
Because the doors close again soon. After that it will be some time before you’ll have a chance to join again.
I close the doors so I can concentrate on getting to know and support my new members AND because I’m constantly adding more helpful resources all the time (and that takes a lot of time and effort!).
“The program is so accessible and the community is so supportive.”
“You’ll feel like you can take on the world with The Autoimmune Collective resources and community.”
So, Let’s Recap!
When you join The Autoimmune Collective you get instant LIFETIME access to the 3 Phases to Autoimmune Health – videos, tools, exercises, AIP meal prep guides, freezer meal plans & recipes, time-saving techniques, and more – designed to transform you from someone struggling because of their autoimmune disease to someone THRIVING despite their autoimmune disease. (Value $1997)
- Plus you'll get the AIP Basics Course (value $149)
- Along with 4 Done-for-you AIP Meal Plans (value $49)
- The AIP Breakfasts Book and Companion Meal Prep guide (value $25)
- And the Office Hours Calls with Michele to answer your questions, clear up your doubts, and keep you motivated and on track (value $599)
That makes everything you get well worth over $2700!
“After spending hours and hours of research gathering info from multiple sites and joining what seemed like a gazillion groups, I found my home with Michele and the AutoImmune Collective”
“If you are looking for that comfort feeling, recipes that are “normal” (not some weird high energy needed and a culinary degree as well) and a place you can just be you, this is it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Still have questions? Let me see if I can help…
Below are the most common questions I’ve been asked. If for some odd reason you don’t see your question, just email me at [email protected] so I can assist you. Sound good?
What happens when I join the AIC?
You first breathe a sigh of relief because you made an IMPORTANT step towards your transformation! Then, you’ll hop on over to your inbox where you’ll find your login credentials and you can get into ALL of the resources right away.
You will also receive some emails over the next few days that explain the various resources and help you navigate through what will help you most right now.
How is the Autoimmune Collective delivered?
Everything can be accessed from your personal membership portal!
Once you log in you’ll have instant access to all of the online classes, guides, cheat sheets, freezer cooking plans, and recipes from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You can also download the audios, printable guides, and handouts and save them to your devices.
Where does the AIC community meet?
Our private community gathers on Mighty Networks — away from the distractions and privacy concerns of social media.
A handy mobile app makes our safe space easy to access from anywhere and you can set how often you want to receive notifications.
No worrying here that if you make a joke about peeing yourself while jumping on a trampoline you’ll get served up adult diaper ads for the next month (true story – happened to me on FB! So embarrassing!)
There are a few versions of AIP. Which one are you focused on, Michele?
Great question! The one I practice and teach is the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. This version was developed by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne and is a subset of the Paleo Diet.
However, it really doesn’t matter much – the differences between the versions aren’t huge and all of the resources within The Autoimmune Collective will help you no matter what version you’re on.
I’m already doing AIP -- will this help me?
100% Absolutely! Not only will the recipes, freezer meal plans, meal prep section, and videos help you make what you’re doing easier and more manageable; The AIC will provide you with the additional resources that will help you make this a lifestyle that enables you to thrive well beyond the kitchen.
It’s not like you finish doing AIP and your life magically just changes – you need to make sure your sleep, exercise, and stress are optimized, break bad habits, learn new ones that will support your health long term, and find ways to make it all sustainable long term. That’s what the whole other half of The Autoimmune Collective is for – and could help literally anyone, but is geared specifically for people with autoimmune disorders.
What makes you, Michele, the best person to learn from?
I’m an AIP Certified Health Coach who used AIP to help my own autoimmune diseases, but also hundreds of others in the 8+ years that I’ve been doing this.
I’m also a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (and on my way to being a Certified QiGong teacher, NLP Practitioner, EFT practitioner, and Yoga instructor!).
I’m constantly learning and keeping up on the latest data and research in health and mindbody connection as it relates to autoimmune disease. I’m also an empath who’s been in your shoes.
I'm so overwhelmed with how to do AIP, will this help me?
YES!! I’d recommend first starting with the bonus AIP Basics Course to really get a good understanding of what you can and cannot eat, get cheatsheets that you can post in your kitchen, and understand what to expect from BEFORE the diet all the way through how you’ll reintroduce foods.
Then you can start going through some of the easier step-by-step meal plans and dump-and-go freezer meal plans to get some meals in your freezer and give you some breathing room. As you get more confidence and time you can tackle some of the other recipes to really round out your food and give you lots of variety.
I'm doing this to help my spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend/partner - can they join the community too?
Absolutely. First of all – if you’re doing this to help learn about AIP, cook meals for someone, and understand what they need, THANK YOU. I am so happy there are people like you that support those of us with autoimmune diseases.
If you join and the person you are helping also wants to be a part of the community, just send me an email so I know there will be two people from the same account to look out for and approve!
How much time will this take me?
The amount of time it takes is completely up to you. You can just hop into the main portal for a minute if you need a step-by-step meal plan to work on or a recipe to prepare, or spend however long you want on a stress relief technique (we have options from 2 minutes all the way through an hour!)
This is meant to be a resource to use whenever you need it. At first, you might spend more time going through the Meal Prep mini course or AIP Basics course, then you might spend less time as you go through the diet.
Later you may come back and spend more time going through the Optimizing your Lifestyle and Mind sections.
After that you might just use it as needed – when you are more stressed than usual, having some sleep disruptions, dealing with some negative emotions, or just want to do an energizing Qi Gong session!
I really don't have time/the ability/the energy to cook. Do you have any options for me?
The step-by-step meal prep plans and the dump-and-go meal plans have been created so that those with very little time and energy can accomplish them.
However – if you REALLY cannot do it, they’ve been written in a way that you could hire a local high school or college student, or even a stay-at-home mom looking to do something while her kids are at school, to cook these for you. These inexpensive options would get delicious AIP-compliant food in your fridge, pantry, and freezer, and help them out as well.
How long do I have access to this program?
You get lifetime access! The content, audios, PDFs and everything else are yours to keep.
And don’t worry, there are already over 300 members, so it’s not going anywhere!
Once I get in will I have to pay anything else?
No. While I cannot speak for the future and if I’ll offer additional upgraded experiences that will require payment (like small group coaching), once you join The Autoimmune Collective you get every single resource within.
In addition, I’m constantly adding to it, so you’ll get all of the additions as well at no extra charge.
I'm religious - will the resources conflict with my beliefs?
Absolutely not. The guided meditations and hypnosis audios do not in any way conflict with or dispute any sort of religious beliefs and can be wonderful companions to prayer.
The guided meditations give you the space to think about things that may not otherwise come up when engrossed in a busy lifestyle, and you may choose to spend the time given during and time after that to quietly contemplate in any way you choose.
And as for the Qi Gong, despite its ancient Chinese Taoist roots, it is in no way religious. In fact, one of the greatest Qi Gong masters of the modern age, Mantak Chia, is a Christian. Again, it can be a valuable companion to your prayer and by releasing energetic and emotional blockages and practicing gratitude, may bring you even closer to and strengthen your relationship with God.
We have many members who are religious and have found a lot of success with the resources in this program!
Will I be able to get off of my medications if I go through your program?
I cannot guarantee that anyone will be able to get off of medications, avoid medications, or avoid surgery, etc by using any of the tools or diet resources in this program.
I also want to state that it’s not a failure to BE on medication or to have to have surgery for your disease. We are fortunate to live in a time where all of these tools are available to us, and sometimes it requires a blending of these tools in order to get the most improvement.
I personally take thyroid medication every day, and my son uses insulin for his Type 1 Diabetes (an autoimmune disease) every day as well. Without these medications we wouldn’t be able to survive, so I am so thankful we have them available to us.
That being said – the diet, lifestyle, and mindset pieces can tremendously improve your quality of life – because you shouldn’t settle for “meh.”
You only get one life, an average of 4000 weeks to live – why spend it feeling miserable?
*Autoimmune disease cannot be cured (that we know of). I am not a doctor nor a medical practitioner. I do not make the claims that this program or diet will cure or heal you, or even say that you’ll definitely feel better. However, many people have found relief from their symptoms by using these methods and I hope the same for you! (Please read my Disclaimer for more information)
