Host and Guest Speaker:
Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo interviews Terry Wahls, MD
In this show you’ll learn:
- What are the most important things that you could do right now if you are experiencing autoimmune symptoms?
- Why are diet and lifestyle changes not stressed by your medical doctor when being treated for chronic pain, brain fog, and fatigue?
- Will this protocol help if my doctors can’t yet diagnose what specifically is wrong with me?
Listen to the Replay:
Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.
Join Dr. Ritamarie and Dr. Terry Wahls as they discuss the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, get back to her life, and embark on a new mission: to share the Wahls Protocol with others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.
Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she teaches internal medicine residents, sees patients in a traumatic brain injury clinic, and conducts clinical trials. 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 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 and the paperback, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and teaches the public and medical community about the healing power of intensive nutrition.
You can learn more about her work from her website: www.terrywahls.com. She is conducting clinical trials testing the effect of nutrition and lifestyle interventions to treat MS. She is also committed to teaching the public and medical community about the healing power of the Paleo diet, as well as therapeutic lifestyle changes to restore health and vitality to our citizens.

I have been trying to find a fuaoticnnl medicine doctor in Southern California. Even when they say they know what I’m talking about they don’t seem to know what I’m talking about, even though they are trained in fuaoticnnl medicine!! I ask if they use a paleolithic diet that is tailored to my particular nutritional deficiencies, they say yes, but then in practice they give the same paleolithic diet to everyone and add supplements. I even went to a practitioner who has your book, knows what you teach, and she gave me a sheet, a list of foods to go by that she gave me one of the two mass produced sheets of food to eat. Everyone gets one of the two.
