The Wahls Protocol®


The Wahls Protocol® named for Dr. Terry Wahls, is a functional medicine-oriented approach to treating Multiple Sclerosis and other Autoimmune Conditions. It emphasizes specific nutritional strategies, movement, and stress-reduction practices with targeted supplementation to reverse the symptoms of these chronic diseases

Watch the video MINDING YOUR MITOCHONDRIA to learn about her extraordinary story and how she went from her tilt reclining wheelchair to resuming biking, hiking and speaking across the country on her profound healing journey.

Dr. Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City. Before being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Dr. Wahls had been very physically fit and active, running marathons, mountain climbing, cross country skiing and earned a black belt in Taekwondo.

After decades of troubling symptoms she tried to ignore, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000. Within three years of her initial diagnosis, Dr. Wahls ended up in a tilt/recline wheelchair due to her disease, having transitioned from relapsing-remitting MS into secondary progressive MS. In spite of seeing the top doctors and taking the latest drugs, her condition declined. That’s when Dr. Wahls decided to consider a Functional Medicine approach. By realizing her disease was more of a system-wide malfunction, she went onto create The Wahls Protocol.

As a Wahls Practitioner I have been trained in:
  • A research-backed deep dive into functional medicine principles that address the root cause of poor health
  • Strategies to help clients create resilience, find internal motivation, face food addictions and start creating new health behaviors
  • The latest science in neuroprotection to maintain brain and cognitive reserve, reducing dementia risk and APOE4 risk mitigation in clients
  • Research backed strategies to slow cellular aging, lengthen lifespan and health span in clients
  • The latest findings on the impact of stress, sleep, movement, functional electrical stimulation of muscles and magnets on health and healing

The Wahls Protocol® Autoimmune Support Group

Each week we’ll deep dive into dietary guidance, discussion about physical, metabolic and mental resilience, detoxification and how to sustain the change.

We’ll share recipes, try new foods, learn ways of making home cooking fun, share laughs and make lifelong friends who engage in a similar desire to tap into their own innate healing.

Studies have shown the benefits of engaging in a support group include: realizing you’re not alone, having the abilityto express your feelings in a safe space, gaining helpful information, improved social skills, gaining hope, reduced stress, increased self-understanding and the ability to also help others
