The Doctors meet Lisa, whose battle with multiple sclerosis caused her to quit her teaching job. She began practicing Dr. Terry Wahl’s protocol and changed the foods she ate and it transformed her life.
Lisa's battle with MS began in 2011 and it presented with balance issues and visual trouble. Soon, he began experiencing extreme fatigue and had trouble walking. She began the protocol Dr. Wahls details in her book, "The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles," and she says her MS symptoms have completely reversed.
"It has been an amazing transformation," she tells The Doctors. "It's brought my health back." She explains that when she first considered using The Wahls Protocol, she was told by one doctor that it could cause her to continue to decline, but she returned to it and she says it allowed to regain control of her life and return to her active lifestyle.
Lisa tells The Doctors, "I want people to know it is possible to heal because I wasn't given that possibility. Give yourself grace and heal."
Dr. Wahls is continuing with clinical trials on how food changes, stress reduction, and regular exercise may reverse diseases like multiple sclerosis. Dr. Wahls notes her protocol can be used in conjunction with medications and may also benefit people with health issues like inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, cognitive decline, along with anxiety and depression.
