I had watched this video sometime last year. When I got sick in January, I remembered it and its inspirational story of this great woman and the battle she had overcoming the crippling effects of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and won. As I was overcoming my complete weakness, I remembered Dr. Terry fighting and overcoming total paralysis.
Dr. Terry Wahls was diagnosed with the autoimmune, incurable, progressive and crippling disease of MS.

Rather than give in she kept reading and searching.  This is a very strong motivational video. She taught me to listen to my body.  It is a complex system and its every action is to keep you alive. No one else can hear it except you.  I hope you reach my conclusion – If you put your mind to it, you can solve almost any problem.  I also now believe that almost all disease is curable by giving your body the nutrition it needs.
She found that MS is one of the diseases that your brain actually shrinks.
I just recently found this video from
The video lasts about 18 minutes and well worth the time spent. It will change your view of food, your body and your life.  I’m glad I found this video again so that I can share it with you.

Dr. Terry Wahls learned how to properly fuel her body. Using the lessons she learned at the sub-cellular level, she used diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair.

I have found her website where she has made available more information on what she is calling the Wahls Protocol™,



Dr Terry Wahls-2nd stage Multiple Sclerosis-The Wahls

For four years, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis confined Dr. Terry Wahls to a tilt-recline wheelchair. But by using Functional Medicine to create the Wahls Protocol™, Dr. Wahls has transformed her health and body: now she walks easily without a cane and commutes by bicycle. Dr. Wahls uses these diets and protocols in her primary care and traumatic brain injury clinics and is leading a clinical trial to test her protocols on others.

  1. Hi there,
    Thank you for featuring me on your blog. You know that I believe diet is key to creating health and reversing MS and most chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and mood disorders. With your help, I have been able to reach many more people with my message and they have been able to take back their lives and begin experiencing the benefits of using food as medicine.

    I am reaching out to see if you would be interested in featuring me again in a guest blog post. I would like to share exciting updates of my current research as well as information about my forthcoming book. December marks the end of the first wave of my research study, and my new book, THE WAHLS PROTOCOL, is set to launch on March 13, 2014. The book includes a much more comprehensive resource on how to maximize your health and take steps into integrating The Wahls Protocol into your life.

    If you would like a blog post from me, please email me with the subject line “Blog.” With your help, I can continue to spread my message and we can begin changing the health of people, their families, and communities.
