Diagnosed in 2000 with Multiple Sclerosis, Dr. Wahls disease and functioning progressively declined following the treatment protocol of allopathic medicine. After being confined to a tilt wheelchair for four years, she discovered the world of functional medicine and the power of food to heal her body. She now rides her bike 5 miles to work everyday!
Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she teaches internal medicine residents, sees patients in a traumatic brain injury clinic and conducts clinical trials. She is also a patient with a chronic progressive neurological disorder, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. But thanks to the power of the Wahls Protocol™, which is based on functional medicine and the Wahls Paleo™ diet, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now pedals her bike five miles to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I beat MS using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine. www.terrywahls.com
