ABOUT dr. wahls

Terry Wahls, MD, is a clinical professor at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials testing the efficacy of diet and lifestyle to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles. Her protocol emerged from her own quest to slow the increasingly debilitating symptoms she experienced as a sufferer of progressive MS. Informed by science, she began using Paleo principles as guidelines for her unique, nutrient-rich plan.
