Episode 110: Autoimmunity with Dr. Terry Wahls

The Living Experiment: Rethink Your Choices. Reclaim Your Life.
Episode artwork

This week our guest is Terry Wahls, MD, a physician and scientific researcher best known for her groundbreaking work reversing autoimmune diseases — including her own disabling case of multiple sclerosis, which for a time had her confined to a wheelchair with very little hope of recovery. But recover she did, and what produced her recovery was an experimental, systems-based approach that Dr. Wahls developed for herself. It combined a specialized paleo-inspired nutrition program with other functional medicine and lifestyle interventions — all aimed at healing her brain and nervous system, nourishing her mitochondria and rebuilding her physical resilience. Today that approach is known as the Wahls Protocol, and it's being used to reverse a wide variety of autoimmune diseases, as well as a number of other supposedly incurable chronic health conditions. Here, Pilar talks with Dr. Wahls about the early life experiences that prepared her to deviate from conventional medical practice, even when that deviation invited criticism, ridicule and rebuke.

Bonus Immune Boosting Episode with Dr. Terry Wahls

The Low Carb Athlete Podcast

Read more

Today I had 30-minutes of Dr. Wahls time to get an update on ways we can improve our resiliency and self defense system.

You can learn more from Dr. Wahls website and social media blog posts including this one we review in this episode here 

Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials testing the efficacy of therapeutic lifestyle to treat multiple sclerosis related symptoms.

In addition, she is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine and the cookbook The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions.          

The new information scientists are learning and publishing each day is constantly changing how integrative/functional/conventional medical practitioners administer patient care. Information is vital for you—but it has never been harder for the public to access it.

Here are the key points about cytokine storm in the C OVID -19 pandemic that I want you to know. When our immune cells are working to kill the virus, the virus activates the NLRP3 inflammasome. If NFKappaB has been excessively activated, the immune cells will then initiate excessive release of inflammation producing cytokines. This leads to a cytokine storm and a massive of fluid into the lungs.

This is why people with CV may develop worsening shortness of breath, chest pain, air hunger and steadily declining oxygen. This is when people present to the emergency room with difficulty breathing, needing oxygen and sometimes ventilator support.

What can we do to reduce the risk of NLRP3 inflammasomes activation and excessive NFKappaB?

The literature I am reading is circling around this question. I actually discuss this in the revised Wahls Protocol® on page 189 and again starting on page 343. Diet and lifestyle choices are key. Targeted supplements may be additionally helpful. There are of conventional experimental drugs that are being tried in our intensive care units all around the world.

Even so, once you are on the ventilator, only 17% have survived. There has never been a more critical time for self-care with excellent nutrition, sleep, stress reduction and good sleep. If you have not picked the revised and expanded, The Wahls Protocol A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles—now is the time. 

Second, If you are attending the Wahls Protocol® Seminar, I am adding a weekly Wahls Protocol® Seminar Family Support call on Sunday afternoons. This first call this Sunday will be devoted to CV19 through what I am learning each day from a conventional, integrative and functional medicine approach and answering attendee questions.

Each week I will go through COVID 19 related updates, and how I am addressing prevention, risk reduction and will share the current thinking from the functional/integrative medicine COVID 19 working group I am part of. As I learn new information I have been revising my thinking and recommendations for diet, lifestyle and supplement choices for managing autoimmune and other chronic health problems.

Dr. Terry Wahls On The Importance of Lifestyle In Her Recovery Journey

The Lab Report
Episode artwork
Read more

Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and known for The Wahls Protocol. The Wahls Protocol is an eating guide she initially developed to help her body heal from multiple sclerosis but has since used to treat patients with similar disorders and other autoimmune diseases. Terry has since pursued a career in helping patients transform their bodies into the efficient metabolic machines they were meant to be.

Terry joins us to share what The Wahls Protocol is about and how she developed it. She describes the struggles she faced with multiple sclerosis, the medications and treatments she used, and what made her ultimately take her health into her own hands. She discusses how the paleo diet and lifestyle played a huge role in her protocol and how it relates to our DNA. Terry also shares how she incorporates fasting and meditation into her everyday life.

“The reason we have so much chronic disease is that our diet and behaviors are all pointed so far away from how our DNA evolved over millions of years.” - Terry Wahls

This week on The Lab Report Podcast:

  • How Terry recovered from a disease through The Wahls Protocol.
  • What led Terry to have a career in functional medicine?
  • How the protocol works and how it helped her recover from multiple sclerosis.
  • Why our lifestyle is far from what our DNA intended for us.
  • The latest focus of their team's research.
  • Conducting studies and treatments through telemedicine.
  • What readers can expect from the re-release of The Wahls Protocol.
  • How she applies fasting in her daily life and how it relates to stem cells and youthfulness.

Learn all that you can about cytokine storm, seeing new patients and more...from Dr. Wahls herself.

As everyone in the world seems to be working at home (ideally) and using the internet, as well as ZOOM, we sadly had a poor connection on ZOOM video conference call.  Dr. Wahls shared tons of valuable information that Debbie recorded in the intro as she was cut in/out throughout the entire call (sadly).  We apologize about the quality of recording but it was 7pm in her time zone- when everyone must have been using the WiFi!

In response to the COV ID- 19 pandemic, I have made some changes to my annual seminar:

First, I am holding the price at $1097 through the end of April.

Reverse Autoimmune Disease Using the Power of Food with Dr. Terry Wahls - Holistic Plastic Surgery Show #182

Holistic Plastic Surgery Show
Episode artwork
Read more

Food is Medicine.

Dr. Terry Wahls was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis, confined to a wheelchair, and told by her neurologists to get her affairs in order. Instead of giving up, however, she researched the foods that power the mitochondria in the brain, completely revamped her diet, and in less than twelve months she was off her medications and riding her bicycle to work.

Using principles that worked for her, Dr. Wahls is now helping thousands of people with multiple sclerosis and other debilitating autoimmune conditions to get their lives back. Using a protocol which focuses on eating the right amounts of real foods, Dr. Wahls is one of functional and holistic medicine’s leaders in educating the public and other doctors on the power of food as medicine.

On this episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, Dr. Wahls shares with us her story and the protocol she uses to heal autoimmune disease. We discuss which types of foods should be removed from the diet, which foods to add, and what lifestyle modifications can make major changes for our health. It’s an eye-opening discussion with a true trailblazer in functional and holistic medicine.

Please join me and my good friend, Dr. Terry Wahls, as we reveal How to Reverse Autoimmune Disease Using the Power of Food.

Link: terrywahls.com/diet

Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. In 2018 she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Linus Pauling Award for her contributions in research, clinical care and patient advocacy. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day.

#98: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions with Dr. Terry Wahls

Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit
Episode artwork
Read more

Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a reclined wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.

Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. To do this, she adopted the nutrient-rich Paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. 

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Terry Wahls, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions

Dr. Wahls conducts clinical trials that test the effect of nutrition and lifestyle interventions to treat MS and other progressive health problems. She also teaches the public and medical community about the healing power of the Paleo diet and therapeutic lifestyle changes that restore health and vitality to our citizens. Every August, she hosts a Wahls Protocol Seminar where anyone can learn how to implement her Protocol with ease and success.

In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Wahls talk about how she stunned the medical community by reversing her painful symptoms of MS. They discuss The Wahls Protocol and how it’s transforming the lives of people with autoimmune conditions and they get into the latest scientific findings on fasting, ketosis, neurorehabilitation, and behavior change when it comes to treating MS and other autoimmune conditions. 

In this episode, we dive into:

-Dr. Wahls’ MS diagnosis and what she did to reverse her symptoms (2:04)

-How Dr. Wahls changed her diet using Paleo principles (25:15)

-The important role vitamin K plays in the body, especially when it comes to myelin repair (30:54)

-How immunosuppressant drugs block the repair that your brain is attempting to do (45:57)

-The Wahls Protocol and how it helps other chronic autoimmune conditions (55:50)

-How research gets funded (1:00:05)

-How Dr. Wahls went from being banned from the National MS society to receiving funding for her research (1:10:37)

-The science of fasting (1:34:18)

-The importance of having a clear mission, purpose, and goal when it comes to your health (1:41:30)

-Where to learn more about Dr. Terry Wahls (1:47:08)

Align Podcast
Episode artwork

The foods you choose to consume and the lifestyle practices you live out daily determine the quality of your relationships, the happiness you experience, and ultimately your fate. 

In this episode of the Align podcast, I chat with Dr. Terry Wahls, who is more than a doctor specializing in autoimmune conditions, but also a patient with a chronic, progressive disease. Dr. Terry was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis in 2000, and by 2003 she had transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. It was clear that eventually she would become bedridden by her disease, and she made it her mission to forestall her fate as long as possible.

From Dr. Terry’s direct experience, she shares her expertise on the connection between our diet and lifestyle and the quality of our lives. We chat about everything from the amount of love and loneliness we feel, to the amount of energy and vitality we experience, and the deep relationships we have in our lives.

Dr. Terry Wahls is also a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College, the creator the Wahls Protocol diet, and the author of the Wahls Protocol book. 

What you’ll learn: 

  • How to mentally face and deal with chronic conditions/diseases
  • The affects chronic conditions/diseases have on relationships 
  • The connection between love/loneliness and nutrition
  • The affect a healthier diet has on the mentality of children
  • Lifestyle factors that lessen the symptoms of chronic diseases 
  • A new approach to the Paleo diet
  • A breakdown of the Walhs Protocol diet for autoimmune conditions
