This weeks guest is Dr. terry Wahls. Who is she?
From her website: Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical multiple sclerosis trials . She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day.
She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions.
She conducts clinical trials that test the effect of nutrition and lifestyle interventions to treat MS and other progressive health problems. Learn more about Dr. Wahls’ clinical trials here. She also teaches the public and medical community about the healing power of the Paleo diet and therapeutic lifestyle changes that restore health and vitality to our citizens. She hosts a Wahls Protocol Seminar every August where anyone can learn how to implement the Protocol with ease and success. Follow her on Facebook (Terry Wahls MD) and on Twitter at @TerryWahls.
For me, this is a story of revolution. The ability to stop a progressive disease and reverse it through upstream lifestyle trigger removal and the addition of substances known to fix defects in human biology. This is the story that we all need to look at from a prevention of all cause disease perspective. This is the how to not get sick over time starting at the earliest age of life.
