Episode Summary

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)– a debilitating autoimmune disorder– Dr. Terry Wahls sought the best care and the newest treatment methods. But despite the doctor’s efforts, her condition continued to decline. Just when she was almost to her lowest point– barely able to walk and dealing with neurological lapses– she was able to turn it all around. Once she created her very own modified diet, specific to what she learned her body needed,  she took a 180 and saw her condition rapidly improve. She even was able to complete a 18.5 mile bike ride. 

We all know that dealing with an autoimmune disease can be a serious battle. Diseases like Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can sometimes seem almost impossible to manage. But today, Dr. Terry Wahls shares with us that recovering from deteriorating MS is possible.

“Her modified paleo diet [can] reverse a really incredible autoimmune condition. Now, this plan is created for vegetarians, vegans, meat eaters, and everything in between. So it’s really just figuring out what works best for you. And the intention here is to reduce the inflammatory process. She also adopts mindset, gratitude, physical therapy, and movement– there’s so many other components to the healing journey.”

“This fundamentally changes how I think about disease and health, and the way I practice medicine and the focus of the research that I do. And forgive me– I have to wipe my nose because I can’t tell that story without crying”
