Dr. Terry Wahls, a physician, was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) in 2000. She went to the best available clinic for MS treatment the Cleveland Clinic. By 2007 her disease had progressed so much that she needed zero gravity chairs to sit and needed 2 canes to walk. She was in danger of shortly being totally bed ridden.
That is when, after much research, she switched her diet with astounding results. In 3 months she was able to walk between rooms in the hospital with 1 cane. In another month she was able to walk throughout the hospital with one cane. In 5 months she biked around the block and in 9 months she biked 18 miles. At a year she was able to go horse-back riding in the Rocky Mountains.
Dr. Terry Wahls says that she is the canary in the coalmine with a warning that there is something seriously wrong with our diet. We need to be less on the grain based and processed food diet and more on the greens-vegetables-nuts-berries-fresh meat-and-wild fish diet. Please note that this is not some off-the-wall person speaking. She is a trained physician, and now they have run clinical trials and the astounding results have been validated. In the face of abundance and prosperity we are literally starving ourselves of much-needed vitamins and antioxidants. The result is neurological problems (MS, Alzheimer, Parkinson, Huntington, learning problems, attention deficit disorder), hardened arteries and blood pressure, diabetes, and food allergies (eczema, asthma, allergies, infertility, arthritis, chronic headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, etc.)
This is what she recommends:
Daily 3 cups of greens (Kale)
Daily 3 cups of sulfur rich family (Cabbage family and Onion family)
Daily 3 cups of bright colors (from Vegetables, Fruits, and Berries)
Regular diet of Wild fish (Not farm raised fish)
Regular diet of Grass fed meat and organs (Not grain fed meat and organs)
Once a week Seaweed (For Iodine and Selenium)
A note of warning: She does not recommend avoiding regular medical treatment. What she is saying is that we all need to change our diet and those who suffer from some of the ailments listed above need to continue with the medication they are having but urgently switch diet to slow down or even reverse the progress of their ailments. Make sure that your physician is aware of the principals of functional medicine and work with your physician in adjusting your medicine as you make progress.
