Episode 216 – Dr. Terry Wahls
Featuring guest: Dr. Terry Wahls
Author of the new book The Wahls Protocol
Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she teaches internal medicine residents in their primary care continuity of care clinics, sees patients in a traumatic brain injury clinic and conducts clinical trials. For four years, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis confined Dr. Terry Wahls to a tilt-recline wheelchair. But by using her research, Functional Medicine and Paleo principles to create the Wahls Protocol™ program, 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 therapeutic lifestyle and traumatic brain injury clinics and is leading clinical trials to test her protocols on others.
