How to Reverse MS Symptoms with the Wahls Protocol
Are you or a loved one looking for a way to reverse MS or autoimmune symptoms? If you haven’t heard of Dr. Terry Wahls, this incredible M.D. and researcher was able to turn back the clock on her own progressive multiple sclerosis with lifestyle changes and a specifically tailored Paleo-type diet.
(If you prefer to hear Dr. Wahls explain her story and her methods rather than read about it, you’re in luck! I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Wahls in this Healthy Moms podcast where she explains how she designed her multi-faceted protocol to support and nourish the cell mitochondria with the power of real food.)
Her journey started as it does for many of us … searching for answers to the puzzling health problems that affect us personally.
Dr. Wahls started to experience the symptoms of MS while she was attending medical school. Her first official diagnosis of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis came in 2000.
In 2003, this former national tae-kwon-do competitor needed a tilt recline wheelchair. She now had secondary progressive MS, and the drugs weren’t working. Even with her own medical knowledge and the help of some of the best doctors in the world, she wasn’t getting any better. So, armed with piles of studies, she dug into the research herself to find answers.
It soon became obvious to Dr. Wahls that it couldn’t hurt to try known brain-boosting nutritional supplements for help. This led her to consider … how could she get the same brain-nourishing benefits from real food? Her research led her to learn how a hunter-gatherer (Paleo) diet could help nourish her body and possibly heal her from her disease.
