The idea of aging can be a difficult notion to navigate stringing with it fears of decline and deterioration. But it doesn’t have to feel that way—ongoing research in protecting lifespan has our back!

During this next 2-day seminar, I will share everything I have learned while investigating healthy aging strategies for myself.

Appreciate aging as a unique phase in your life:

predominant among them:

Maintaining the physical body.

Preserving and protecting the brain and mental acuity.

Nuturing stress reducing practices.

Cultivate the confidence to reclaim your life and take control of how you guide your body though each phase of your life!

Hear what past attendees have to say

  • I’ve had PPMS for 20 years and I’m very disabled. My disease is very advanced so I wasn’t expecting the diet to be able to help me, but it does and it helps more and more the longer I do it. I was also not expecting the seminar to be useful for someone in my position as I thought it would be too much geared towards those with less advanced disease. But it was fantastic. It was really stimulating and challenging in all the right ways. I live in Germany so I couldn’t see most of it live because of the time difference, but I don’t feel like it matters as it suits my energy level much better to watch the lectures over a longer space of time and I’m sure I’ll want to watch most of them again. I feel deeply grateful for everything Dr. Wahls has given me!

    2021 Virtual Guest
  • The seminars are a great way to learn more about a variety of health issues and stay in touch with the MS community.

ROBERT J. HEDAYA, MD, ABPN, DLFAPA has been at the cutting edge of medical practice, psychiatry and psychopharmacology since 1979. With the publication of his first book, Understanding Biological Psychiatry (Norton, 1996) he pioneered the use of Functional Medicine in the Psychiatric field. Dr. Hedaya is also a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University Medical Center, where has been awarded the “Teacher of the Year” on 3 occasions while teaching courses on Affective Disorders, Cognitive Therapy and PNIE (Psycho-neuro-immuno-endocrinology) since 1983, and received the prestigious Vicennial award. He is a faculty member at the Institute for Functional Medicine, author of two additional books (The Antidepressant Survival Guide, and Depression: Advancing the Treatment Paradigm), and the founder of the Center for Whole Psychiatry and Brain Recovery. Dr. Hedaya is an editorial volunteer for Advances in Mind-Body Medicine and Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.

His website is www.wholepsychiatry.com.

Enhancing Brain Recovery with Functional Medicine and HYLANE technology

Many neuropsychiatric disorders are only partially responsive to current mainstream treatments, leaving patients with residual deficits at best, and relapsing or chronic conditions at worst. 

Functional medicine (FM), commonly thought of as systems medicine or ‘root cause’ medicine, addresses various underlying systems which interact with and heal the brain; 

However, qEEG analysis– after FM has been implemented–reveals significant residual abnormalities of brain function indicating a partial recovery of brain function. 

Using HYLANETM technology (HBOT, qEEG-guided laser therapy, and Neural exercises, such as NFB) we have been able to normalize within-brain-function as documented in qEEG, and published in our recent paper, as well as restore localized brain volumes (documented on Neuroquant MRI) in subcortical structures such as the palladium, and basal ganglia; 

We have applied this to diverse conditions (APOE4 homozygote -based MCI, treatment resistant depression, Broca’s aphasia, acquired prosopagnosia, Early vascular MCI, temporal Lobe epilepsy, facial distortion in a paranoid schizophrenic, and improving reading speed)  with excellent results and are now working on a prospective study; 

In this presentation Dr Hedaya will review the basics of Functional Medicine, the science behind HYLANETM technology, and accumulating clinical data and cases.

Therapeutics for MS: The Benefits of Optimizing Hormones—The Latest In Young Fresh Frozen Plasma Infusions

Research now on a regular basis is indicating that dysregulation of circulating estrogens observed in peri and post-menopausal women can adversely impact brain cognition. It extends into testosterone levels for both men and women. Free radicals that occur simply from living, breathing, and eating must be reduced to enable the body tissues to remain functional. As the free radical load increases in the body, hormones drop and the ability to keep its ‘balance and function’ decreases. Eventually the parts can no longer work together to sustain total body function, especially in the brain, and a disorganized state of neurodegeneration(MS) occurs.

The question whether young blood or young fresh frozen plasma (yFFP) contains rejuvenating factors has been explored in academic institutions for years. Interest and hope that this young plasma is a gateway to help neurodegenerative disease models continues.

Human Plasma contains substances that produce similar results as the animal blood sharing(parabiosis) models. It was not long after the parabiosis studies that double- blind, placebo- controlled trials were begun on human Alzheimer and Parkinson’s patients at Stanford University.

In Houston Texas, an Infusion study of MS patients was done using yFFP from 18-25 year old volunteers.

This presentation will highlight promising interventions in the MS field, such as bio-identical hormone replacement and utilization of clinical testing such as salivary, blood and urine hormones and how to apply them clinically. Also explored will be the study results and how young fresh frozen plasma (FFP) can be implemented in treatment for MS.

Physical Activity for Healthy Aging

Healthy ageing is defined by WHO as the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that will enable older people to do the things that matter to them. Older adults face several challenges that come with old age such as reduced muscle mass, decreased mobility, pain, cognitive impairments and many others. I will present evidence showing beneficial effects of physical activity in preventing or managing these challenges associated with aging. We will discuss about different types of physical activity/exercises and strategies to become more physically active to achieve our goal of healthy aging.

Objectives:

  • To understand how aging affects our body and mind, and what is healthy aging.
  • To discuss how physical activity supports healthy aging.
  • To discuss resources and tools available to implement physical activity and/or well-balanced exercise program.

The Gut-Thyroid Connection, Profound But Under-Appreciated

The gastrointestinal tract markedly influences the thyroid via autoimmunity, thyroid hormone conversion, and absorption of thyroid medication. Mismanagement of digestive health is actually one of the most common reasons for recalcitrant “thyroid symptoms.” This presentation will highlight multiple case studies, as well as the practically relevant actions that can be taken to improve thyroid health via optimization of the GI tract.
Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the published science associating GI conditions to hypothyroidism + thyroid autoimmunity.
  • Review testing that can be used to definitively determine if one truly is or is not hypothyroid.
  • Understand how chronic malabsorption due to poor gut health impacts the efficacy of thyroid treatment and what to do about it.

I was successful for 20 years in clinical and corporate roles, AND by the time I was 44, I had been diagnosed with 7 autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus, fibromyalgia, endometriosis and narcolepsy. I discovered the hard way that if you don’t take care of your mind, body and soul, your body will shut you down for maintenance. I accepted the call to heal and I am happy to say that I am now free of autoimmune disease. I am also a Stage 3 Cancer thriver. I now know that positive psychology coaching is the career where my talents and passion collide. My passion and purpose is to help others achieve mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing so that they are free to pursue their passion and their purpose – because the world craves each of our unique contributions.

Title: Top 10 Biohacks For A Better Night’s Sleep + Action Plan + Coaching Exercise

Are you tempted to try to determine which is most important: Eating (Nutrition), Moving (Exercise), or Sleeping? Research reveals that most experts agree: these are the “Big 3” components of physical health and wellbeing and may actually all be of equal importance. However, research also reveals that sleep is often the most neglected of the three, and therefore the area that may need to be addressed more urgently. This presentation will begin with motivational interviewing questions and conclude with a SMART goal plan. Presentation will also include a fun and creative coaching exercise to help participants prioritize sleep.

  • This is my second year participating in the Wahls seminar. Obviously this year was different because of the pandemic but Terry Wahls and her team did their best to create a program packed with expert talks, tips and great information for anyone struggling with an autoimmune disease. Terry can only provide the information and encouragement but it is up to each of us as individuals to implement what we have learned. Looking forward to implementing what I have learned over the next year until the next seminar!

  • I plan on attending the Wahls Protocol Seminar every year. I learned about so many resources that can help me manage ms. Dr. Wahls and faculty are knowledgeable and truly care about improving the health of people with autoimmune disease. They are helping people in a way that traditional medicine is unable to at this team. So grateful for these wonderful humans. Great investment for your health!

    2020 Virtual Guest
  • The Wahls Protocol Virtual Seminar Experience has been a life changing event for me! Diagnosed 6 years ago with MS, I was shocked and in disbelief for years. I started a DMT, as recommended, however, I believed I could just work much harder to overcome MS and maintain my professional and personal lifestyle by not acknowledging that my diagnosis would be a life-changer.

What do you have to gain?

  • I cried when I told my husband about the seminar. It suddenly became so overwhelming. The connection that we experienced was so very beautiful and powerful. I'm just sitting here feeling profoundly thankful that I got to be a part of such an amazing group of people. Thank you, everyone! I'm holding you all in my heart this morning!

    Sherilyn 2019 Attendee
  • I just ordered a salad from the hotel. The manager says, "I don't have any more Wahls certified meals." I tell him that's ok, I'll try to make my own. He comes back, and says "I'm out of salmon but have chicken. How does that need to be prepared?" "I want you to kick MS' ass!"

    I was almost in tears. It was so kind and the perfect thing to hear at the perfect moment.
    Cecy 2019 Attendee
  • just want to say I am so happy I was able to attend this seminar❤️ Listening to Dr Wahls share her story and journey I person was so inspiring and connecting with like-minded people was priceless✨ I have left feeling inspired, motivated and grateful for the new found friendships I have made.  Thank you for all involved working on this event - everyone was so welcoming. It was such a great conference hearing all the speakers and connecting with some amazing like minded individuals!  I felt really inspired and motivated - the community you all created was such a positive experience.  

    2018 Seminar Guest
  • The Wahls Protocol Seminar was great, and the "After Seminar-Seminar" was pretty great too! It's all about community, and the community that has developed and continues to grow around the Wahls Protocol is truly amazing. Together, we can accomplish anything, and nobody gets left behind. We're all in.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • I wasn’t sure what to expect coming to the seminar for the first time. At most I thought I would gain an immense amount of knowledge and useful resources to keep me on track. What I gained was SO much more! The community of warriors, and immediate connections have been such indescribable gifts 🧡. I slept most of the day yesterday - back to work today and I am more motivated than I ever have been to make my health a priority. I’m missing you all, already!

    Patti L. 2019 Attendee
  • This Wahls Warrior princess (using the bright red walker) at the seminar thanks ALL of you for restoring my hope!! I have NEVER been in a crowd of such empowered, like-minded people determined to NOT be victims of their disease since I was diagnosed in 2004! Again, THANK YOU and I wish for you nothing but great health and much happiness.

    Shawn K. 2017 Seminar Attendee
  • Now, we can't stop thinking about next year, so we can do it again! Back to the real world, it was a truly memorable experience. We learned about the biome, and nutrition. We heard about the latest research and therapy. We found out about hormones, how to move like an animal and the importance of mindfulness. But I learned something that was much more important. After the seminar, when everything had quieted down, and the conference rooms that had been home to so much energy had emptied, I found what we had travelled so far for. Human connection. Everything we need is right in front of us; it is up to us to accept what is so graciously offered. Friendship exists for those who seek it, and take a chance by giving a little of themselves in the spirit of conversation and listening as others do the same. We had no idea what awaited in Cedar Rapids, but I do believe we found exactly what we needed.  

    2018 Seminar Guest
  • What a great seminar and retreat (as an alumni I think the retreat part was even more golden this year). I had a 3 hour layover at the Denver Airport and am now on my way to Vancouver, BC. During that time I worked on a goals list of things I want to add/tweak/increase to further my healing. The trip always makes me feel so motivated to do more. Now to get my butt in motion and DO more!

    Cindy H 2019 Attendee
  • I love it when something completely unexpected happens, those unplanned moments when everything is exactly as it should be, and I'm able to be in the moment, and feel true bliss. If somebody told me last week that I would be singing and dancing in public - and enjoying it, I would have thought he was nuts. But what the heck, when the river is flowing only a real nut tries to swim upstream.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • Every day of the conference I laughed, I spent time in deep thought, and I was moved to tears of joy and happiness. Each day was a full day - a heck of a day. It was five days that were incredibly special in my life that I will remember forever.

    Kim S. 2017 Seminar Attendee

  • It was serendipitous when I noticed near the beginning of the pandemic that Dr. Wahls had released her second Protocol book. And that she was offering an online seminar for many to follow.

    Her seminar introduced me to Functional Medicine practitioners of many stripes: neurology, exercise, cooking, autoimmune specialist, e-stim, toxins and mold. The list of topics and presenters was outstanding. Questions were answered in real-time within a chat format and participants could share experiences with one another in break-out rooms. What a gift!

    My husband and I ended up following Level 1 The Wahls Diet™. But let me tell you about my clinical results after 3 months.

    When I first started in February, I was using a rollator everywhere, not going anywhere by myself and had brain fog that kept me from thinking about and doing things I love to think about and do.

    Four months after starting the Protocol, I saw my neurologist. He actually said “WOW! Tell me what’s going on.” I’ve parked my rollator and am now using a cane, and I was able to explain “The Wahls Protocol” to him.

    We decided to defer any more Ocrevus infusions (unless I have recurring symptoms), stop a stimulant he had me on (I’d already stopped a second one), but kept all the B and D vitamins. And that’s the extent of my meds list.

    I’d truly forgotten who I used to be. A sexy, fun, smart lady who loves living in the city and making art. I have an architect husband, Mike, whom you’ve all met online in Wahls Seminar 2020. And with his unconditional love and support, we both benefited immeasurably.

    I get to keep him, too. 🙂 That’s a pretty great story, don’t you agree?

Featured Article: "Wahls Seminar Provides Different Perspectives on Managing MS: A Nutritionist’s View",
by Alana Kessler MS RD (www.bewellbyak.com) on Multiple Sclerosis News Today Blog

“To say these few days were inspiring would be an understatement. From the cutting-edge content to the precise scheduling, every day was packed with a Michelin star-quality menu of the latest scientific research, interactive community building, mindful exercise, and opportunities to learn and explore new and creative strategies to heal and uplevel the functionality of the body, mind, and spirit.”

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect coming to the seminar for the first time. At most I thought I would gain an immense amount of knowledge and useful resources to keep me on track. What I gained was SO much more! The community of warriors, and immediate connections have been such indescribable gifts 🧡. I slept most of the day yesterday - back to work today and I am more motivated than I ever have been to make my health a priority. I’m missing you all, already!

    Patti L. 2019 Attendee
  • What a great seminar and retreat (as an alumni I think the retreat part was even more golden this year). I had a 3 hour layover at the Denver Airport and am now on my way to Vancouver, BC. During that time I worked on a goals list of things I want to add/tweak/increase to further my healing. The trip always makes me feel so motivated to do more. Now to get my butt in motion and DO more!

    Cindy H 2019 Attendee
  • The Wahls Protocol Seminar was great, and the "After Seminar-Seminar" was pretty great too! It's all about community, and the community that has developed and continues to grow around the Wahls Protocol is truly amazing. Together, we can accomplish anything, and nobody gets left behind. We're all in.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • I just ordered a salad from the hotel. The manager says, "I don't have any more Wahls certified meals." I tell him that's ok, I'll try to make my own. He comes back, and says "I'm out of salmon but have chicken. How does that need to be prepared?" "I want you to kick MS' ass!"

    I was almost in tears. It was so kind and the perfect thing to hear at the perfect moment.
    Cecy 2019 Attendee
  • I cried when I told my husband about the seminar. It suddenly became so overwhelming. The connection that we experienced was so very beautiful and powerful. I'm just sitting here feeling profoundly thankful that I got to be a part of such an amazing group of people. Thank you, everyone! I'm holding you all in my heart this morning!

    Sherilyn 2019 Attendee
  • I love it when something completely unexpected happens, those unplanned moments when everything is exactly as it should be, and I'm able to be in the moment, and feel true bliss. If somebody told me last week that I would be singing and dancing in public - and enjoying it, I would have thought he was nuts. But what the heck, when the river is flowing only a real nut tries to swim upstream.

    Seminar Attendee 2019
  • I’m speechless. I has been a really memorable week, not only food and protocol, it’s been all about life changing posibilites and purpose minded life projects. And in top of it, marvelous people to bond with. “ ... if you’ve gotten where you are not being 100%, imagine what you can be and do being your 100%” Thanks Dr Wahls for your kindness and selfishness less to welcome me/us in your tribe, in working for more knowledge and supporting each other in this life healing/enjoyment process.

How do I get there?

The hotel is located in the northern part of Cedar Rapids, about a 20 minute drive north of the Cedar Rapids airport, and just a few miles off of interstate 380. If you’re flying in, we suggest either taking the complimentary hotel shuttle, hiring a taxi (estimated at $42 each way), or renting a car if you’d like to do some sightseeing on your own! The Marriott offers complimentary parking for guests if you bring a car. To reserve the complimentary Marriott  shuttle pick up for your stay, you must book it in advance: Marriott Shuttle Phone: 1-319-393-6600 If you do choose to rent a car from the Eastern Iowa/Cedar Rapids airport, a full listing of car rental agencies can be found by clicking here.

What should I wear?

The Marriott hotel ballroom can sometimes be chilly, so we suggest you dress in layers during the day sessions. August in Iowa is pretty hot and humid, so if you go outside, you might want to consider bringing a cooling vest or head wrap if you are heat-sensitive. For those with sensitivity to light, we suggest bringing sunglasses with you that you can wear inside during the day-sessions, as the meeting room lights can be bright.

Hear what past attendees have to say

  • This seminar is truly life-changing. I didn’t realize all I could learn. I loved the virtual format and found it kept me accountable over the weeks! Love the community as well. 

    Holly 2020 Virtual Guest
  • The inspiration offered through the current virtual events has been great; better than we had hoped for.

    The virtual format is more comfortable and less challenging than face-to-face is.

    Having access to the recorded presentations for review at my leisure is valuable.

    2020 Virtual Guest
  • I read about the annual Wahls Protocol Seminar and immediately registered and attended the 2019 Protocol Seminar. I was so thankful I did. I am a Wahls Warrior on a healing journey with the other Wahls Warriors. This is my second Protocol Seminar (2020) and I will be signing up for my 3rd. Thank You Dr. Wahls for going before us and now coming alongside us in our journey for healing to happen through lifestyle and food!
