In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Terry Wahls. Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical 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 (paperback), 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

Dr. Terry Wahls explains the essence of wellness: ”The Wahls Protocol improves how we conduct the chemistry and quality of life, improves energy, mood and reduces pain. And for many, this translates to reduce needs in medication.”

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Importance of diet and lifestyle in treating and curing chronic autoimmune conditions
  • Standard versus radical treatments to multiple sclerosis
  • Certain foods to avoid and foods to include in diet to promote treatment
