Minding your Mitochondria

Dr. Terry Wahls describes her path to restoring her health after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and the choice she made to eat a diet that would benefit her body on cellular level. It’s quite incredible how much a good diet can change your life in an unbelievably positive way. Dr Wahls’ journey gives us so much hope in the health and wellness space, because it shows us how much of an impact the food we eat can have on our overall lifestyle. Most of us are lucky enough that we do not have to endure such a disease, but it should not take a debilitating disease such as MS to make us realize we should be eating a nutrient dense diet.

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. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. 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.
