Healing the Body's Cells withThe Wahls Protocol
Terry shares her revolutionary modern paleo plan to treat all chronic autoimmune conditions. Approximately 50 million Americans -- 20 percent of the population -- suffer from autoimmune diseases. And while some medication treatments may prove helpful, the rising tide in lifestyle and functional medicine is hard to ignore. Dr. Terry Wahls is a leader in this field, and was just recently awarded a $1 million grant toward her research at the University of Iowa to study the effectiveness of her diet program in the recovery and remission of MS by the MS Society. In her new book, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life, she shares a practical plan to combat the symptoms of autoimmune conditions in your own kitchen, preventing -- and in many cases reversing -- the onset of these diseases. Through diet, patients are able to heal their body by rebuilding damaged cells from the inside out.
She talks about the three levels of diet based upon individual needs
· The importance of taking in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from food, rather than pills and supplements
· The latest research on autoimmune disease, brain biology and Paleo principles that provide structure to diet in order to maximize healing.
The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life not only explains in detail the fundamentals of functional medicine and Dr. Wahls’ own proven approach to cellular nutrition, but it offers a day-by-day, meal-by-meal (including holidays) plan to help readers get back to healthy.
