Dr. Terry Wahls - A Prophet for Our Time
I have just watched the most amazing video I have seen in a long time.
A woman named Terry Wahls gave a talk at TEDxIowaCity, describing how she cured herself of secondary progressive MS. She's a physician - and after seven years of "the best treatment", including chemotherapy, was in a situation where she was in a reclining wheelchair all the time. Being a researcher, she started studying the actual causes of her illness (something modern medicine doesn't usually spend too much time on - making symptoms go away is the centrepiece) and adjusting her diet to support the myelin sheathing on her brain.
Within a month, she could walk with only one cane. Within six months, she was riding her bike. She looked strong and healthy as she gave her talk.
What is the magic medicine she used? A paleo, or hunter-gatherer diet. Greens, sulfur-containing vegetables, brightly-coloured fruit, grassfed meat and wild-caught fish. Nothing Big Pharma could make any money on. But she saved her own life, and she could save yours.
If you are diabetic or have any other kind of auto-immune disease, as I have, what are you waiting for? What am I waiting for? Watch this video and tell me what you are going to do to improve your own life today. Is the taste of bread worth the suffering of diabetes? Tell me.
