Dr. Terry Wahls: Healing Chronic Disease with Traditional Foods
Have you been told you have an autoimmune condition or chronic illness?
Or a condition that can’t be diagnosed or helped by modern medicine?
Dr. Terry Wahls found herself in this position when she was diagnosed with progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS). When the best medical care was not working, she took matters into her own hands and discovered a protocol of food, supplements and lifestyle changes that allowed her to get out of her wheelchair and ride her bike to work again.
In this episode, Dr. Wahls reveals how she recovered her own health and went on to develop a protocol and research to help others heal from autoimmune and chronic conditions.
