Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS
Dr. Wahls shares her story with Brooke Blazevich, a University of Iowa master’s student, on the Jimmy Moore Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show. Dr. Wahls describes growing up on a farm in Iowa, earning her bachelor’s degree in painting, and then going to medical school. She defines autoimmune disease, what symptoms to look for with multiple sclerosis, and how these symptoms are caused by strained mitochondria in our cells.
Dr. Wahls explains what she learned from experimenting with her diet and using trial and error to build the nutrient-dense diet that is featured in her new book, The Wahls Protocol. Her book details what foods offer what nutrients and offers 3 complete diet plans so readers can choose the one that best fits their lifestyle.
In this interview, there are in-depth explanations of a ketogenic diet, the benefits of intermittent fasting, and how to cook the “Wahls way.” Listeners will also hear Dr. Wahls share the powerful story of the first time she was able to get back on her bike.
