About this program

Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story and groundbreaking research has already changed the way millions of people think about autoimmune disease, intensive nutrition—and kale. Over the last several years, Dr. Wahls has received countless requests for further training and one-on-one lessons in how to incorporate her Protocol into health, wellness, and medical practices across the world.

Dr. Wahls piloted a coaching program that was available to the general public and delivered online. This first-time experience proved to be full of important lessons and some significant growing pains. Undeterred, Dr. Wahls worked closely with her business development team, legal counsel, and other experts in the health and wellness space, and she determined that she would move forward with an in-person training event following her acclaimed Wahls Protocol Seminar that will serve as the primary basis for certification. This program is expected to evolve and grow in coming years.

Hear from our Certified Health Professionals:

  • "The program provides an additional layer of expertise and focus to the foundation of functional medicine. Dr. Wahls’ practical approach can be used by any health professional. This is because it is a lifestyle medicine-oriented food-first approach, rather than a program that relies on advanced testing and supplements that may not be accessible to all who want to understand and use the Wahls Protocol® in their practice. Her influence, in particular, in the world of MS means that those with the condition who want an alternative to the pill-for-an-ill approach will seek out providers who share this philosophy and Wahls Protocol® knowledge. Why not be one of them? Come to the annual Wahls Seminar and stay for the extra day so you can be certified, too."

  • “I use many of her 16 session recommendations when working with clients. Most of my client referrals come from being listed as one of her coaches. Attending the conference allowed me to make wonderful contacts."

Multiple Sclerosis destroyed Dr. Wahls’ life, landing her in a tilt-recline wheelchair 24/7 and diminishing her ability to work and care for her family. After years of taking conventional medications that didn’t help, she leveraged her knowledge of the body and brain to create the Wahls Protocol®. Now she has her life back, enjoying health and vitality, able to engage fully in her work and family. She even rides her bike!

Dr. Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and conducts clinical research with a deep background in peer-reviewed published papers. She started hosting this Seminar to inspire and teach the public what it takes to create their own health and start their own hero’s journey back to a fulfilling life.
