EP. 49: The Missing Link For Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune Disease Uncovered...



Jessica Flanigan is an autoimmune Protocol leader and expert. She has been a clinical nutritionist for 20 years and exclusively assisting clients in AIP for over three years. She has worked extensively in private practice while also working alongside many practitioners including medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists and body workers. She is  CEO of Nourishful Inc. and speaks around the country about the value of using illness as an opportunity.
