In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Terry Wahls to discuss the power of food as medicine and her personal journey of healing from multiple sclerosis through diet and lifestyle changes. Her own dramatic transformation from being wheelchair-bound to thriving inspired her to dedicate her life to helping people understand the role food plays in chronic and auto-immune diseases, such as MS. Dr. Wahls has over 30 years in private practice, is a professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa, the author of The Wahls Protocol, and the catalyst behind ground-breaking clinical trials that study the effects of nutrition and lifestyle changes on chronic diseases.
