Learn more from Dr. Ken Sharlin...
Hear him speak at the 2020 Wahls Protocol Seminar & Retreat.
He will be giving two talks:
When Can I Stop My Medication?
And How The Wahls Protocol Can Get You There.
A podium presentation followed by panel discussion with Dr. Ken Sharlin and Dr. Terry Wahls
The first time the words, “You have multiple sclerosis” is heard by anyone must be devastating news. Perhaps second to hearing the diagnosis is the difficult to accept idea that conventional treatment means a life sentence of medications that are costly and can have serious, life-threatening, side effects. Until recently, there has not been an examination of when disease-modifying therapy can be stopped. Our presentation will explore the latest information on this subject, including a discussion of how The Wahls Protocol offers a strategy to MS sufferers to take control, and increase the likelihood that they can stop their medication.
“Only the Good Die Young: Dr. Roy Walford, ALS, and the Dream of Longevity – Lessons Learned from the Field and the Lab.”
Roy’s story is amazing and ironic for a man who said he would live to 120, but died at 79 of ALS. Dr. Roy Walford was a pioneer researcher in the field of longevity, mentor to Dr. Valter Longo who is the inventor of the PROLON diet. He was know to be extremely colorful and multi-talented beyond his work as a scientist. He was an actor, a social activist, an author, a musician, and a leading advocate for the idea that a nutrient dense calorie restricted diet would extend life for (potentially) decades. Infamously, he spent 2 years living in Biosphere 2 in the Arizona Desert along with 7 other “crew members” to demonstrate the viability of closed ecological systems to support and maintain human life in outer space. It was designed to explore the web of interactions within life systems in a structure with different areas based on various ecological biomes. Little did he know that when he emerged from Biosphere 2 with slurred speech and an awkward gait he was showing signs of the disease that would be his demise. However, the 5 year survival of ALS is only about 5% and yet Walford lived for many years beyond the expected survival. I will be using his story to explore ALS from a functional medicine perspective and speculate what may have triggered Walford’s illness but also contributed to his unusually long survival with the illness.
