Dr. Wahls speaks with Five to Thrive co-host, Dr. Lise Alschuler. http://fivetothriveplan.com/thrive-thoughts/category/podcast-food-as-medicine-a-conversation-with-terry-wahls-md
In this interview, Dr. Wahls shares her experience with multiple sclerosis and explains how MS is caused by inflammation of the central nervous system and oxidative stress on mitochondria. Other topics covered include food sensitivities, Dr. Wahls’ Paleo approach to consuming a nutrient-dense diet, supplementation and Vitamin D, and stress reduction. Discover food as medicine; it’s time to thrive.
Dr. Wahls’ research and diet do not apply exclusively to those suffering from MS. Stressed mitochondria have been linked to different kinds of autoimmune and chronic diseases as well as cancer. A large majority of our health issues stem from what we do or do not eat. When cells are not receiving adequate nutrition, they fail to generate the energy we need and cannot remove toxins as efficiently, and our biochemistry becomes unbalanced. Creating this internal, unbalanced environment sets us up for increased risk of cancer and disease. Making changes to your diet, reducing stress, and improving your lifestyle by following The Wahls Protocol can reduce these risks.
