with Dr. Terry Wahls, author of The Wahls Protocol

Welcome to Thyroid Refresh TV!

In this episode, we speak with Dr. Terry Wahls. Dr. 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. 

In 2018, she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Linus Pauling Award for her contributions in research, clinical care and patient advocacy.

Dr. Wahls 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. She is the author of The Revised and Expanded Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles.

Join us for an interesting discussion with Dr. Wahls about diet and lifestyle, resilience, and the positive psychology method she uses. Tune in to learn more!
