Autoimmune Healing

I started this blog  four years ago. It grew and changed my life.

This year I moved to a new platform. This weekend I launched my new program: the Autoimmune Healing n=1 Workbook Kit.

Celebrate with me by using the coupon code petra8paleo this week to get 25% off, as an exclusive launch promotion for readers who have been with me from the beginning.

Regular price: $24.95.

Learn more about the workbook kit here.


To be honest, I’m a bit overwhelmed by the enthusiasm:

Eileen Laird

“The Autoimmune Healing n=1 Workbook Kit is the ultimate empowerment tool! Our bodies are trying to talk to us all the time, but it’s hard to understand amidst all of the mixed signals. This workbook cuts through the static and helps us tune into our bodies in a whole new way. It’s like a light in the darkness, guiding each of us along our own unique path to autoimmune health.”

Eileen Laird of the Phoenix Helix blog & podcast, author of Simple Guide to the AIP

Dr Sarah Ballantyne

The Autoimmune healing n=1 Workbook Kit fills a gap—both for people who aren’t quite ready to commit to a full Autoimmune Protocol and for those who find they need to personalize or troubleshoot for best results. Petra and Matthew really know their stuff. This program simplifies what can seem like a mysterious process—self research—and puts it in reach of everyone who wants to heal. At $24.95, it is an excellent value.

What should 21st century healing look like? The experts in the health and wellness field say it should be designed for the individual. Our genes, histories, environments, and even microbiomes are completely unique and it’s increasingly clear that our healing paths must be too. Enter Petra and Matthew at Biohack U, who have taken their backgrounds in research and analysis to create an extremely versatile template for guiding a personalized journey. The Autoimmune Healing n=1 Workbook Kit is a game-changing process to step-by-step self-experimentation, so each of us can learn what works. If you are ready for next-level wellness, this kit is for you!

Calling All Humans! (I need your insight)

BeachI’m launching.

It’s official.

I’m quitting my job & committing to working full-time on the one thing that I think will make the biggest different to our planet right now.

I need your feedback on my plan.

So, I’m asking you to read something and then share your honest reaction.

Note: Thank you to everyone who responded (85 of you… I feel so honoured). I have incorporated all your feedback into my idea and it has evolved substantially as a result. So I have closed this survey and will launch a 2nd one based on my new & improved vision soon.)


  1. Start with my description of the platform I want to build; then
  2. Head to the survey I’ve developed to capture your feedback.

They both link to each other, so start wherever you like~.

I’m so excited. This is the thing I want to do with the rest of life.

And I really, really appreciate your help with making it a reality.

Want to do more? Share this with your friends!


Me, being excited about the rest of my life!

Helping a Loved-one Heal

My book is called Helping a Loved-one Heal: N=1 experimentation and paleo healing protocols for caregivers. and it’s included in the Paleo Family Toolkit.

My book designed to provide caregivers with the most effective new methods to support healing for the people they love, but it can also be used by people who want to heal themselves.

Helping a Loved-one Heal_Cover1It’s the book I wish I’d had before I got so much hands-on experience!


  • Outlines the various Paleo Healing Protocols and explains how to customize them;
  • Explores ways to start a healing protocol, including when someone is reluctant to begin;
  • Shares stories about what real-life healing looks like;
  • Devotes a section of the book to the change process, with practical information about traditional and innovative ways of understanding and implementing change;
  • Gives clear instructions for safely engaging in customized experimentation to improve health based on personal responses to interventions;
  • Explains the role of measurement in the healing process, with instructions for easy approaches that can be implemented right away;
  • Delves deeply into strategies for coping as a caregiver; and
  • Provides tools and links to support all aspects of helping a loved-one heal.

In this book I provide a template, not only for getting through the experience of caregiving but for becoming stronger in the process.

A Giveaway (and an update~)

trax2I’ve been working on some really exciting projects that I can’t wait to share with you. And I’ll be back to blogging regularly soon!

In the meantime here’s a quick update:

  • My new website is almost launch-ready. I’ll send you the details soon so you can join me there!;
  • I’ve been charting new frontiers in my own health (physically, cognitively and spiritually) and can’t wait to share what I am discovering;
  • Matthew continues to make good progress in his healing;
  • Things have been busy, but healthy meals keep appearing, thanks to my best friend in the ktichen: my Instant Pot. At first it was just my bone broth machine: broth that used to take 3 days only took a couple of hours, and I adored it for that alone! But that was just the beginning of my love affair: I now cook with it almost daily and think of it as  basic equipment for any healing protocol kitchen. That’s why I joined with Eileen Laird from Phoenix Helix to create the Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook.

aip_instantpot_cov_finalThe Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook brings delicious, hassle-free, one-pot, healthy, 100% AIP recipes to your table, making healing from autoimmune disease as easy as pressing a button!
~Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Approach

The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook is now available, and it’s beautiful! I’ve been through every one of the 141 recipes in this book and this is the delicious food that lands (almost effortlessly) on our table every day now.

The Giveaway

I want to share the love!

Until October 10th, you’ll get a free copy of my e-book Helping a Loved-one Heal when you buy the Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook.

Here’s review of my book by Angie Alt and Mickey Trescott, Paleo AIP pioneers, and authors of the soon-to-be released Autoimmune Wellness Handbook:

Helping a Loved-one Heal_Cover1Helping a Loved-one Heal by Petra Chambers-Sinclair is one of the sophisticated books we’ve ever come across in the health and wellness sphere. Petra leads us through a university-level course on understanding the different “Paleo-based” healing protocols, the change process in supporting a loved one to begin healing, n=1 experimentation in order to refine the healing process, and last, but not least, coping with the (usually unexpected) role of caregiver. This is not to say that the material is dense or difficult. A skilled educator knows how to present information in a useful, actionable way and Petra does just that in this book. Whether you are the caregiver or are the chronically ill person yourself, if you are ready to move beyond the basics and into advanced healing concepts,Helping A Loved-One Heal is for you. This is ‘Healing 2.0’ guidance.”

Toxin Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT)


I first learned about Toxin Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT) from Dr John Cline, Matthew’s Functional Medicine Doctor.

TILT made sense because it describes a tipping point: how toxins accumulate in our bodies until our tolerance is compromised and we tip from an equilibrium of health into an equilibrium of illness.

As Dr Cline explains, “when our bodies accumulate enough toxins, often in combination with stressful life events, a tilt occurs, and our health then deteriorates rapidly in many ways”.

The idea behind TILT is that many chronic illnesses, as well as environmental sensitivities, originate in an accumulation of toxins in our bodies over time. At some point in this accumulation, susceptible individuals tip over into poor health. Continue reading
