On February 18, Dr. Terry Wahls and Leanne Ely of SavingDinner.com hosted a webinar to discuss The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine. Over 9,000 folks tuned in to hear Dr. Wahls speak on the episode of The Ultimate Food Fight: Wage War on Poor Health with the Wahls Protocol. To hear the same great advice they did, click this link.
The webinar begins with Dr. Wahls’ personal experience: her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis followed by a steady decline, until she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair to get around. After much research, Dr. Wahls developed a diet based on Paleo principles that contained nutrients essential for brain health. Within 30 days of starting this new dietary approach, which relied on supplements, she regained energy and mental clarity. However, she found that while supplements did slow her decline, food was a more effective treatment, increasing and intensifying her recovery. Because of this transformation, Dr. Wahls now views disease and health very differently, both as a physician and a person.
Today, 3 years later, Dr. Wahls has gotten her life back, and now she shares the path to this renewed vitality with the public. In this webinar, she provides an in-depth look at the Wahls™ diet and how it both excludes and stresses certain foods in order to optimize health. She also discusses her experience as a vegetarian and the difficult process of transitioning back to eating meat. She walks listeners through a typical day, describing what she eats and what exercises she does on both a daily and weekly basis.
Dr. Wahls then shares testimonials from Wahls Warriors, others whose lives have been transformed since they began following the Wahls™ diet. These inspiring testimonials come from people with Parkinson’s disease, depression, neuropathy, nerve damage, diabetes, and other illnesses and diseases.
More stories and other information can be found in The Wahls Protocol, Dr. Wahls’ new book, due out on March 13, 2014. The book includes 3 levels of the Wahls™ diet with weekly menu plans and nutritional breakdowns as well as extensive information on detox, exercise, electrical therapy, alternative medicine, stress management, and what recovery looks like.
