The author shares her integrative approach to healing MS and other chronic autoimmune conditions.
Like many physicians, Wahls focused on treating her patients' ailments with drugs or surgical procedures-- until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she adopted the nutrient-rich paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. Now she shares the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, and get back to her life.

While this book is very thorough in explaining what Terry Wahls did and why, and offering detailed explanations of what the reader should strive for, it is clearly written by someone who is financially very comfortable. I fully believe in consuming organic vegetables and grassfed meat, but I cannot afford to eat that way all the time even though I place a priority on it (the meat in particular is expensive; fortunately we have great local sources of organic vegetables). As for the healthcare options she recommends, those too are costly, especially if you utilize multiple remedies. Even the supplements will add up to a substantial sum monthly.

Candidly, I also find her "Wahls Warriors" testimonials rather self-aggrandizing. I'm glad she has helped other people, but "Wahls Warriors"? I'm not interested in joining a cult.

Having said that, I would encourage sufferers with MS to read this book anyhow, with an eye to seeing what can be gleaned from it. I don't have MS but I have friends who do, and anything that can slow down or reverse this horrendous disease is of value. Even if it only convinces you to stop eating processed foods laden with chemicals, you still will be better off.

If you have the budget or the medical plan, you will have to buy, prepare and eat nine cups of organic veggies and 12 ounces of meat a day, plus glasses and cups of coconut milk until you cannot see it anymore! In the mean time, you will have access to a doctor and various specialists, specialized tests, electrical therapy, FES devices, bioness, vibration machines, endless pool. You will know producers of organic meat and, of course, farmers near where you live who grow organic vegetables. I forgot the various supplements and vitamins, a food processor like the Vitamix (around $650). Hope you do not have a debilitating case of MS and live on invalidity provincial pension … By the way I have MS

This diet was helpful for Terry Wahls, but it did not beat her MS and has not been subjected to clinical trials.
