Wahls Protocol Health Professional Spotlight

These health professionals have completed my live or virtual training to learn how to use the specific diet and lifestyle concepts to manage autoimmune dysfunction, chronic disease, Chronic pain and fatigue, mood disorders, and more


Dr. Ken Sharlin, IFM-Certified NeurologistDr. Ken Sharlin, M.D., M.P.H., IFMCP

“Hi Wahls Warriors, I am an IFM-certified neurologist who has worked closely with Dr. Wahls over several years. I have also worked with Dr. Dale Bredesen and together (along with several other clinical researchers) we published a paper of 100 cases of reversal of cognitive decline. My approach has its foundations in The Wahls Protocol, with aspects of Bredesen’s work, as well (the overlap a lot) and in my office we successfully help patients with progressive cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative/neuroinflammatory disorders. There could be benefits from adopting this brain healthy lifestyle at any point. Look up our paper on Reversal of Cognitive Decline 100 Patients. My clinic contributed 34 cases to the series.”

Lisa Lovely, MA.Ed., Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP)

A Wahls Warrior of 1.9 years, Lisa experienced life-changing healing of her Multiple Sclerosis on The Wahls Protocol.  Her intention is to teach others how to balance and heal the body and exchange hopelessness with empowerment. She is currently writing a book about her personal recovery on the protocol.

“After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011, declining for 6.5 years, then thriving for the past 1.9 years on The Wahls Protocol, this dramatic improvement in my personal health led me to change careers to recently become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a Certified Wahls Health Professional in 2019.  

My decline and tremendous recovery directed me to an unanticipated life purpose of supporting others in constructing personal healing on the protocol.  I have the sincerest gratitude for the second chance at living a meaningful life, deeply attributed to Dr. Wahls sharing The Wahls Protocol with the world and intend to pay my gratitude forward as a Wahls Certified Health Professional. 

As I plan my future practice, I am first and foremost a patient and will bring this unique, empathetic perspective to my practice.  I understand the intricacies, the challenges, and limitless celebrations of implementing The Wahls Protocol as I live this life. Combining my scope of practice as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with the extensive knowledge I obtained from The Wahls Certified Health Professional training deepened my personal understanding of how imperative diet and lifestyle are to addressing autoimmunity, strengthened my resolve to spread Dr. Wahls message of an epidemic of health, and highlighted my meaning and purpose as a health professional.  I hope my clients are inspired by and benefit from my personal experience on The Wahls Protocol as they construct their personal healing in my future practice. 

A unique element to my healing is I’ve been documenting my personal recovery on The Wahls Protocol via numbered notes here: Isn’tshelovely. “
