Terry Wahls, M.D., presenting at the Ancestral Health Symposium 2012 (AHS12).
Minding My Mitochondria
I have progressive multiple sclerosis and was confined to a tilted reclining wheelchair. Professor of Medicine, I studied the basic scientific literature on progressive brain diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's, nutritional needs of the brain and the Paleo Diet.
Using what I learned, I created a modified Paleo Diet to maximize the nutrition of my mitochondria, my cells, and my brain. Only 9 months after this new way of eating, I was able to travel by bicycle 18 miles. I tell my personal story while teaching the biology of what our cells need to thrive, why a structured Paleo diet provides the highest calorie nutrition of any diet and how to eat for the maximum health of our mitochondria, our cells and our brains and bodies . My clinical trial, using the Paleo diet, has remarkably positive results.
