Episode Summary

Dr. Terry Wahls did what many told her was impossible, she reversed her ‘irreversible’ disease and continues to conquer MS one day at a time. Dr. Wahls used a combination of a paleo diet and other lifestyle choices to manage her chronic disease and has helped many others on their path to healing autoimmunity with ease and success.

It is possible to correct your cells when you give them the environment they need to heal. Dr. Wahls is here to lay out exactly what you need to do to allow for your self-correcting chemistry to rebuild your body molecule by molecule. Learn the nuances found in your chemistry based on your genes and microbiome so that you can utilize these concepts and get unstuck.

Dr. Wahls has created a plan for vegetarians, vegans, meat-eaters and everything in between so that you can figure out what foods are damaging your system, and which you should be keeping around for good. The inflammatory foods and environment your cells are living in can be healed if you adopt an intermittent mindset instead of a continual one, and Dr. Wahls is here to help.

A true inspiration and proof that you can take your healing into your own hands, Dr. Wahls is here to highlight the protocols that not only work for you but keep you thriving in the face of adversity.

“And then I had a really wonderful ‘a-ha’ moment. What if I redesign my paleo diet to get in the food the things I am taking in supplement form?” (13:23)

“Now I am helping people to learn how to really dial in their diet to keep getting better, and better, and better health outcomes.” (20:10)

“It turns out that when we fast or go through periods where there is not enough food, that does a lot of favorable nudging of how our cells run the chemistry of life.” (25:31)

“The first thing you have to do is give people hope that it is possible, you have to explain the mechanisms of how this can work in metaphors that are culturally appropriate.” (31:29)
