Over 15 years ago, physician Terry Wahls was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis. Being a doctor, she dove into the scientific literature looking for a cure to this progressive disease. Though she got the best conventional medicine had to offer, her health declined to such a degree that three years later even a strong breeze could cause her sensitive body pain.
After much research, she came to the conclusion that, rather than taking supplements, she should identify the foods where the nutrients could be found. It wasnâ€™t long before real food had turned her health around. Now, she is an author and researcher that advocates the power of real food in recovery from multiple sclerosis and a host of other conditionsâ€”including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, auto-immune conditions, scleroderma, mental health concerns, neurological disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar issues, Alzheimerâ€™s, traumatic brain injury, Parkinsonâ€™s, and even primary care problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
â€œOur cells are starved for the building blocks we need,â€ she says. She is convinced that real food is the answer to improve our health and give our bodies a chance to detox and thrive.
