Meet One of My Sheroes
If you’re new to paleo and you haven’t heard of Terry Wahls, prepare to be inspired. If you’ve heard Terry speak before, and she’s one of your sheroes as well, you’re going to love this interview.
Terry is a physician with multiple sclerosis, for whom standard medication failed. In spite of receiving the best treatment available, she quickly declined to a wheelchair and was on her way to being bedridden, with no hope of improvement. She put her scientific background to work and began researching the nutrients our bodies need to heal and regenerate. She dramatically changed her diet from vegetarian to the nutrient-dense Wahls Protocol, adding 9 cups of vegetables daily to a high-quality paleo diet. Within a year, she was out of the wheelchair and on a bicycle.
Today, we talk about her protocol in detail, advice for beginners, common mistakes people make, transitioning from vegetarianism, do a guided meditation, and get an update on her clinical trials. Her first research is proving the effectiveness of her protocol on others with MS. In 2015, her trials will expand to patients with fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis.
