Is it possible to regrow part of our brain and nervous system?
We’re here today with a remarkable woman and friend, Dr. Terry Wahls, an award-winning Clinical Professor of Medicine, bestselling author and living testament to the power of healing your body with real food.
Dr. Wahls has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt recline wheelchair for four years. She went on to defy her diagnosis and reverse her condition with real food and lifestyle interventions.
More than 2 decades after her diagnosis with progressive degenerative disease, Dr. Wahls is biking and even running again, teaching others how to heal conditions commonly considered to be untreatable with cutting edge science and a healthy dollop of good ol’ common sense.
So if you’re ready to take your own personal hero’s journey to better health, this is the show for you.
On this show with Dr. Terry Wahls, we’re chatting about:
- How to reverse degenerative disease using the power of real food
- The most beneficial diets for improving quality of life and reducing anxiety
- Why a low inflammation diet allows the body to heal itself
- Why the Carnivore diet isn’t right for everyone
- Why doing things as a family makes diet and lifestyle changes more sustainable
- Simple way to rethink pain and use it as a tool for improvement
- Fun challenges and art projects for brain health and neuroplasticity
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Dr. Wahls.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Sign up for our newsletter, because you’ll get a little research update every week and across the top there’ll be a gold bar that you can complete a screening survey that lets us know some basic demographics. If you have MS, please screen even if you have progressive MS, because you’ll be in our database and we can alert you when we enroll a study that includes progressive MS. And we’re submitting more grants for progressive MS, so I actually am quite hopeful we’ll have a progressive MS study in the future. The current study is for relapsing remitting MS, age 18-70. That’s at TerryWahls.com.

Before You Go
Here’s a quick review that Lisa dropped for the Fat-Burning Man Podcast on iTunes. She says:
Health “a-ha” moments every single week
Abel and his knowledgeable guests take the already fascinating study of what keeps us healthy and bring it to life through engaging and intellectual conversations designed to not only educate, but make you think harder about what we are putting into (and around) our bodies! Thanks so much for putting out such a superb show Abel– keep up the great work!
Lisa, thank you so much for listening, and thank you very, very much for leaving a review.
They help so much to encourage other people to find this show for the first time and others to revisit it for maybe the first time in a decade.
Because it’s been 11 years now, I can’t believe that we’re still chugging along, but it’s so great to have you folks out there still giving us feedback, being involved and telling us where to go next because there are so many different directions in the world of health.
And it’s starting to get pretty exciting, it seems like things are accelerating again, and we’re starting to get that critical mass of health nuts here in Austin.
I’m very excited about what might be coming up next, so stay tuned for that.
