The Wahls Protocol® For You and Your Patients!

The Wahls Protocol® Seminar, August 3-5
Health Professional Workshop and Certification, August 6th

The Health Professional Workshop on August 6th, is designed specifically for the health and medical professionals. This workshop builds on the seminar content of the previous 3 days and provides the science behind how and why the protocol works. This thorough understanding will allow you to improve your patient care by customizing what you’ve learned and applying it in your clinic.

You Won’t be Disappointed!

The Wahls Protocol® offers patients a lifeline when conventional medicine has failed them Medication after medication can slow and sometimes pause their symptoms but cannot reverse the course of autoimmune or chronic diseases. The Wahls Protocol®, implemented by Dr. Wahls herself, thousands of Wahls Warriors, and in various clinical trials, has shown to positively impact the following diseases:

  • Chronic pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Mood disorders
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Parkinson’s
  • Dementia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathy
  • And many more

I know how hard it can be to have patients come into your office with low or no improvement.  Here is an opportunity to improve their life! This protocol requires strength and dedication to adopt, and rarely can people do it alone. Your support and guidance could be the deciding factor  in whether a patient gets better and is able to get out of that wheelchair, walk, and even run again!

Hear from last year's attendees

"The program provides an additional layer of expertise and focus to the foundation of functional medicine. Dr. Wahls’ practical approach can be used by any health professional. This is because it is a lifestyle medicine-oriented food-first approach, rather than a program that relies on advanced testing and supplements that may not be accessible to all who want to understand and use the Wahls Protocol® in their practice. Her influence, in particular, in the world of MS means that those with the condition who want an alternative to the pill-for-an-ill approach will seek out providers who share this philosophy and Wahls Protocol® knowledge. Why not be one of them? Come to the annual Wahls Seminar and stay for the extra day so you can be certified, too."

“I use many of her 16 session recommendations when working with clients. Most of my client referrals come from being listed as one of her coaches. Attending the conference allowed me to make wonderful contacts."

Dr. Wahls and her Hero’s Journey

Dr. Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and conducts clinical research with a deep background in peer-reviewed published papers. This is her timeline to health.

She began having her first MS related symptoms, episodes of facial pain.


Pain episodes became more frequent
and more resistant to treatment.


She transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. She underwent chemotherapy to slow the disease and began using a tilt-recline wheelchair.


Her torso was so weak she could
not sit in a regular chair. She also
started experiencing brain fog.

Summer 2007

Dr. Wahls created the Wahls Protocol®, which gave her the nutrients she needed from foods rather than supplements.

April 2008

She was able to walk without a cane and even complete an 18-mile bicycle tour.


She began her first clinical trial,
testing her protocol in
others with progressive MS.



She had her first episode of dim vision and heat intolerance.


She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.


She extensively researched nutrients important to brain health and started taking them as supplements. The steepness of decline
in her health slowed, but she was still declining.


Dr. Wahls discovered The Institute for Functional Medicine, an organization devoted to leveraging the latest scientific discoveries to better care for those with chronic diseases. Based on their research, she added to her list of vitamins and supplements. She learned about neuromuscular electrical stimulation and added that to her routine.

December 2007

Her brain fog resolved.

October 2008

Her heat intolerance was resolved and she was able to enjoy a daily sauna again


She was able to jog again.
The first Wahls Protocol
® Seminar is held.
