We are recruiting patients for a new research study!
EDQ-MS: Efficacy of Diet on Quality of Life in Multiple Sclerosis.
You are invited to participate in a research study to evaluate the effects of three diets — Modified Paleolithic Elimination diet, Time-Restricted Olive Oil-based Ketogenic diet, and your usual diet with information about the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Participants in the usual diet group will be encouraged but not required to follow the Dietary Guidelines for Americans diet. Quality of life, including long-term effect on motor and vision function, fatigue, mood, and disease activity will be assessed by online surveys, study participant tasks, and brain imaging.
The study will be conducted at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Patients will be followed for two years.
In person visits will occur at baseline (month 0), month 3, and end of study (month 24).

An open letter to Wahls Warriors™,
There are many ways to find diet and lifestyle information and support for your journey. Some of you may decide you have the financial resources and time to spend on a consultation with a functional medicine practitioner.
Others of you may not. Regardless of your approach, stay positive.
Do what you can. Use the library. Work with your primary care team.
Do not obsess over whether you can afford functional medicine.
Obsess over learning how to cook at home.
Obsess over eating what is recommended and eliminating what is harmful.
Obsess over what is in your control.
Participate in support groups online and in your community to share your experiences and strengthen your resolve.
And let go of what you cannot do or access.
If you want to learn more from me and my team about the many things that you can do to restore your health, consider joining the membership site, or if your finances allow for it, come to the Wahls Protocol® Seminar and Retreat. Keep learning. Keep focusing on what is in your control. The most critical thing you can do for your health is understanding that there is a very large difference between doing the diet most of the time (even 95%) and doing the diet 100% of the time. Keep working at it, every day and every week, and know that it takes time.
It took me 17 years to get my daily program to where I am today…and I am still improving my diet and lifestyle choices. No matter which path you choose, the journey back to health is available to you.
Dr. Terry Wahls
