In Wahls Warriors

By N. T.

I only recently discovered the Dr. Terry Wahls diet when my sister sent me a link to the video “Minding my Mitochondria” in July 2012. I have RRMS, and have had it since I was 19 years old. Well, that’s when I was diagnosed, anyway. After one episode of optic neuritis at 19, I never saw another symptom until I was thirty and a half. I just turned 33 a few weeks ago. Things got really bad for me in February 2012.

I lost my ability to walk on my own, this after having been on multiple sports teams only 3 years before. I started the Wahls Diet in earnest in August 2012. I also started Copaxone in September 2012 for the first time. Altogether, I have noticed massive improvements in mental clarity and I have times when I can walk around without my cane, feeling like a normal person again.

Those times make it SO worth it. I can give up cheeseburgers if it means I can walk again! I did feel so good a few weeks ago that I reintroduced bread into my diet. I won’t be doing that again. I felt sluggish and my spasticity in my legs came back. To be honest, in February, when things started to get really bad, I researched what I could on diet, and spent a lot of time on the World’s Healthiest Food website. But to find that a doctor out there also has MS and basically experimented on herself to find and optimal diet…WOW. This is very inspiring. Thank you.
