Dr. Terry Wahls
Dr. Terry Wahls is a professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical research on the use of diet and lifestyle to treat brain-related problems. She has also worked at the VA for many years in the traumatic brain injury clinic and was the director of the therapeutic lifestyle clinic. In both clinics, she focused on using diet and lifestyle to treat traumatic brain injury and neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. Time and time again she saw people experience marked reduction in pain, improved mood, and better thinking. She also saw that in my own life. She has progressive MS and for seven years, she declined steadily, and though she took the newest drugs, including very potent biologic drugs, she ended up in a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. When I started studying the latest brain science and designed a diet and lifestyle program specifically to support my brain cells, my decline slowed, then stopped, then I recovered. I now bike five miles to work. I use these principles to help others with a wide variety of brain-related symptoms end their decline and suffering and restore their lives. If you want to learn more about the protocols I used in my recovery, clinics, and research, visit www.terrywahls.com. Pick up my book, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the companion cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life. If you want to dive even more deeply into what we do to help people reverse their decline and get their lives back, come to the Wahls Protocol® Seminar that I conduct each August.View the class
