Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients' ailments with drugs or surgical procedures - until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt/recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.

Determined to change her dismal prognosis, Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology, and embraced the concepts of functional medicine. She decided that her best chance for recovery was to fix her broken biochemistry by getting her brain cells and their mitochondria the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids they needed for optimal performance. Ideally, these would come through food rather than pills and supplements, so Dr. Wahls adjusted her diet accordingly using Paleo concepts as guidelines for her unique nutrient-rich plan. She also added an exercise regime and worked on reducing the toxins in her environment and managing any additional stress in her life. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked 18 miles in a single day.

In The Wahls Protocol, Dr. Terry Wahls shares her miraculous transformation, along with both her own and current medical research on multiple sclerosis, and the three nutrient-rich diets - Wahls Diet, Wahls Paleo Diet, and Wahls Paleo Plus Diet - that allowed her to reverse the symptoms of MS and get back her active life. Dr. Wahls revolutionized her medical practice to fully embrace the philosophy of functional medicine, and is on a mission to help anyone struggling with autoimmune conditions or other chronic diseases take back their health by adopting the many beneficial health behaviors in the Wahls Protocol.

Jam-packed with science, nutrition, and life-style advice, The Wahls Protocol is an essential resource for anyone who not only wants to reverse the debilitating symptoms of their disease, but wants to thrive to their fullest. The Wahls Protocol gave Dr. Wahls her life back. Give it the chance to restore yours.
