Dr. Wahls and Her Hero's Journey
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. This is her timeline to health.
She had her first episode of dim vision and heat intolerance.
She began having her first MS-related symptoms, episodes of facial pain.
Pain episodes became more frequent and more resistant to treatment.
She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
She transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. She underwent chemotherapy to slow the disease and began using a tilt-recline wheelchair.
She extensively researched nutrients important to brain health and started taking them as supplements. The steepness of decline in her health slowed, but she was still declining.
Her torso was so weak she could not sit in a regular chair. She also started experiencing brain fog.
Dr. Wahls discovered The Institute for Functional Medicine, an organization devoted to leveraging the latest scientific discoveries to better care for those with chronic disease. Based on their research, she added to her list of vitamins and supplements. She learned about neuromuscular electrical stimulation and added that to her routine.
Dr. Wahls created the Wahls Protocol®, which gave her the nutrients she needed from foods rather than supplements.
Her brain fog resolved.
She was able to walk without a cane and even complete an 18-mile bicycle tour.
Her heat intolerance was resolved and she was able to enjoy a daily sauna again.
She began her first clinical trial, testing her protocol in others with progressive MS.
She was able to jog again. The first Wahls Protocol® Seminar is held.
The first publications of her research published.
NMSS clinical trial begins.
Enrollment will be completed.
Analysis of study data will begin.
