Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years.

She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles (paperback), and the cookbook The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions.

  1. But the heart of the matter was MOST LIKELY her glial plasmalogen levels. The change in diet probably increased her levels. Goodenowe is the fountainhead (aka seminal researcher).

  2. Thanks Dr. Terry Wahls and Dr. Gundry, I follow you no matter what, your advice is just too valuable. Since I follow Dr. Gundry, I have a wonderfull health. Keep doing the good work. Next in my agenda is Gut Check 😀

  3. Of course the big pharma cartel gets pissed off (deadly) when people heal! What a great testimonial. Thanks Dr G for not supporting corrupt establishments but rather reinventing them the intelligent/wise way. I've seen this stuff since I was 14, ama not into actual Healing but rather disease maintenance or as they market the term "disease management or care" perfect for building mega empires and billions of sick humans to profit on

  4. if people want to use taste as an excuse ask them why they don't eat poisonous foods and tell them the only difference between poisonous foods and unhealthy foods is the time it takes to affect you negatively

  5. Thanks for all your great advice. I really enjoy watching your videos, they provide a lot of knowledge and are very helpful on a daily basis in choosing food when shopping, etc. Thank you ❤✨

  6. Very interesting podcast, thank you! I was curious if diet change can cure MS and it can! The vast majority of people worldwide believe that MS, alzhermers, diabetes, etc. are incurable and people just take drugs, suffer terribly (and people around them) till they fade away. Such great pity, but one can't change another person's health without that person willing.

  7. 😅 diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 38, spent the next decade using Cain/walker to get around. With diet change MY LIFE CHANGED. I lost 20lbs No long need assistance to get around ❤ THANX DR.G🤩

  8. 😊❤ thank you so much doctor for sharing this information and you ladies are wonderful and amazed person congratulations and I hope God always guides you
    And I have a question I will be 5 years be totally blind and I've been wondering if there's something I can do for my optic nerves, I would like to hear from you thank so much😊❤
