Dr. Terry Wahls, M.D went from tilt-recline wheelchair bound to riding a bike for 18 miles in only a year. Her progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS) wasn’t stopped by the best ideas conventional medicine had to offer. So after exhausting all those options, she dove into the research and decided to solve the problem herself. About a month ago when we met she was on the dance floor getting down!
I had an out of body experience as I watched this woman who just a few years ago was bound to a wheelchair without options was now laughing and dancing. Not only that she travels around the country educating people on the importance of diet, supplements and functional medicine for reversing autoimmune conditions and runs clinical trials that are proving that her methods are safe and work.
Watch this video to get a background for just how big of deal this is. And notice how TED is not as altruistic as you might have assumed. It looks like they’ve lost their way which is sad.
If you or someone you know is struggling with an autoimmune condition like MS or any chronic illness, then this podcast is for you. Heck, even if you’re looking to optimize your health then I’d strongly recommend listening.
