Healing Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury & Autoimmune Disease
Dr. Terry Wahls was confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years, due to a diagnosis of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS).

Now, she bicycles to work every day.

How was she able to make this miraculous shift?

With her many years of medical background, Dr. Wahls found no relief from the best drugs or latest research. In fact, she continued to decline.

By experimenting with a Paleo-like diet, vitamins and supplementation, functional foods and significant changes in her dietary habits, Dr. Wahls was able to design a program that ultimately restored her health. She now uses this method, which she named the Wahls Protocol, in her own practice.

Typically, after four weeks on the Wahls Protocol, patients realize improved energy, mental clarity, and mobility. 

This protocol can also be effective for varying autoimmune conditions, as well as traumatic brain injury (TBI). 

The key of the Protocol, no matter the condition, is to drive down inflammation and ensure the brain has all the building blocks for it to repair itself.

Listen in as Dr. Wahls joins Dr. Taz to share her amazing journey, as well as the basics of the Protocol.
