After progressive multiple sclerosis landed Dr Wahls in a tilt/recline wheelchair, she exhaustively researched autoimmune disease and brain biology, and embraced the concepts of functional medicine. Determined to overcome her initial dismal diagsis, she made a choice to rely on food as her medicine and begun using paleo concepts as guidelines for her unique, nutrient rich plan. As her broken biochemistry began to fix itself, Dr Wahls soon retained full mobility and left her wheel chair behind for good. Dr Wahls transformation was thing short of miraculous, and she knew these treatments could be life-changing for anyone struggling with an autoimmune condition. Now, Dr Wahls shares her pioneering research along with three levels of nutrient-rich diets that can help you reverse the debilitating symptoms of your disease. The Wahls Protocol gave Dr Wahls her life back. Give it the chance to restore yours.
