9 cups of vegetables a day keeps the doctor away?! In this fascinating episode, I sit down with my good friend, colleague and professor at the University of Iowa, Dr. Terry Wahls. Taking back her health and life from the autoimmune condition, multiple sclerosis, Dr. Wahls was able to reverse her symptoms through the power of food and functional medicine. Through her research and clinical trials, she was able to begin revolutionizing the way her patient’s regain agency over their health. Learn how you can begin to heal your gut, support microbiome diversity, calm inflammation and support brain health with key nutrient-dense food medicines and supplements to focus on. Discover how important it is to start implementing the specific lifestyle changes that Dr. Wahls has shown to be very effective in her clinical trials.

Dr. Terry Wahls is a professor at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials testing the efficacy of diet lifestyle to treat multiple sclerosis and is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles.
