Extraordinarily helpful!

If I get off track, now I know what to do to get back on track.

Overall I feel better, clothes fit better, I am calmer, and I am getting more done.

Cholesterol went down to normal range, all numbers are good, it's really interesting.

The Wahls Protocol

Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. Sheryl Poremba, PT has studied with Dr. Wahls and became a Certified Wahls Protocol Health Professional to help her community become healthier, happier, and more active. She also utilizes The Wahls Protocol in her own life. 
Do you or someone you care about suffer from an autoimmune or neurological disease? Maybe there is no clear diagnosis but symptoms like brain fog, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, memory loss, or inflammation are interfering with normal life. If you have been searching for information about functional medicine and using a therapeutic diet and lifestyle program to see how it can impact your health, you’ve arrived at the right place.
