Many people hear about my recovery and focus on the dietary interventions I made to create The Wahls Protocol®. The Protocol is a combination of therapeutic diet and lifestyle interventions that work together to decrease inflammation and create an environment to restore healthy cellular function.
Exercise as a therapeutic lifestyle intervention.
We all know that exercise is good for us. It improves body composition, boosts mood and energy, enhances immune function, and stimulates the formation of new mitochondria.
Many of us with weakness, pain and impaired mobility are missing out on this key part of The Wahls Protocol because we are not doing the RIGHT exercises or finding the RIGHT fitness experts to help us build and maintain strength, balance, and flexibility.
You may be working with a fitness expert, but you may not be seeing improvement because their training does not align with your specific physical needs.
Mindset, Exercise, Nutrition
I am thrilled to introduce my Wahls Warriors™ to a new comprehensive fitness program for conquering MS called Every Rep is a Step.

Every Rep is a Step is founded on David’s 3 Keys to Fitness as outlined in his book, Everyday Health, and Fitness with Multiple Sclerosis: Mindset, Exercise, Nutrition.
