I’m excited to welcome back Dr. Terry Wahls — a renowned professor at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, a bestselling author, and a true medical marvel. She’s not just a colleague but a dear friend.

Dr. Wahls’ story is extraordinary. After grappling with Multiple Sclerosis for over two decades, she catalyzed a dramatic recovery by transforming her diet and lifestyle. 

Her journey isn’t just a personal triumph; it’s a beacon of hope, proving that a fulfilling life is achievable despite chronic illnesses.

We dive into some of her groundbreaking research, including an innovative study that’s set to revolutionize our understanding and treatment of MS and other autoimmune diseases. And the best part? You’ll learn how you can be a part of this groundbreaking work!

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • How Terry went from being immobile to riding a bike within a few short months (and what it could mean for YOU) (4:25)
  • The surprising truth about the most renowned diet for managing MS (and how it stacks up against the Wahls Diet for enhancing quality of life) (13:15)
  • The top scientifically-proven diets to help combat fatigue and elevate overall well-being (and how to determine which is best for you) (18:25)
