Multiple Sclerosis Diet: Doctor Terry Wahls Reverses MS With Diet Alone

By  | Aug 7, 2013

Tingling and numbness in your joints, chronic pain and spasms, and fatigue and weakness are not just indicators of chronic tiredness; they are often the early symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS). More than 2.1 million people are affected by the disease worldwide, although that number is thought to be even greater because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not require physicians in the U.S. to report new cases of MS, says the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Relapsing-remitting MS — the experience of relapses or episodes of deteriorating neurological function — is the most common form of MS seen in the initial diagnosis of patients. While the majority of cases of MS do not leave patients severely disabled, Dr. Terry Wahls, assistant chief of staff at the Iowa Veterans Affairs Medical Center, MS-stricken, saw herself continue to become severely incapacitated three years after her initial diagnosis in 2000. "I was afraid I was going to become bedridden," she said at the TEDXIowaCity event in November 2011, referring to what she once thought was irreversible MS. 

Wahls took the natural healing power of food to reverse her irreversible MS within a year, going from riding a tilt-recline wheelchair to competing in an 18-mile bicycle tour with her own version of the paleo diet without prescription drugs.

Eating a better diet is going to help anybody. My issue with Dr. Wahls is, at least previously, claimed her "diet" CURED her MS. Many people will take the word cured and expect the same result.

As for being wheelchair bound and riding a bike for 18 miles a year later. I have also known people with MS that has gone from a wheelchair to back to normal on their own.

I have recently started Juicing. After my first day, I felt better. I am not taking as much provigil if any at all. Good diet is key to feeling better, but a cure - not so sure.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket using Dr. Wahls approach. Work with your doctor.
