My relationship with food has been healing and transformative. I was once in a tilt-recline wheelchair, and now I find myself biking to work. Many Wahls Warriors have found my community because they are somehow impacted by poor health, disease, and decline. While many are looking to help themselves, there are just as many Wahls Warriors looking to help a friend or family member to find a way to a better life.
I have recently started to see a small number of patients in my own functional medicine practice. My growing wait list has shown me the growing need for people needing support to make the dietary changes that can help transform their lives.
Wahls Warrior Beth Schultz will be a featured guest during my webinar tonight. She lived with MS and Lyme disease for 9 years and through following the Wahls Paleo Diet™ she got her health back. Inspired by real food, she pursued a certification through The Nutritional Therapy Association and now helps others transform their lives through real food. (If you haven’t yet, sign up for the webinar here. If you can’t attend the live event, sign up anyway and we will send you a link to the replay.)
For those of us who have found health using dietary and lifestyle interventions, we need to continue to create an epidemic of health within our communities. As an educator and researcher myself, I believe that knowledge is the most powerful tool for patients. There is a need more than ever to connect people to healing foods and I support the foundational holistic approach to nutrition that the NTA delivers through their program.
