“The Wahls Protocol: How I beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine” First Glimpse
While navigating through the first few chapters of “The Wahls Protocol” the common theme that Dr.Wahls is expressing is that your body is a complex machine and it requires complex nutrients to function properly, especially your cells and the mitochondria powering them.
“What your cells use to fuel the chemistry of life comes directly from what you feed yourself.”(Wahls) Unfortunately many of us never take this fact into consideration, as we are too busy choking down a breakfast burrito on the way out the door at 7:15 AM already late getting the kids off to school and stressing about a 9:00AM meeting that we are presenting at. If we don’t take time to keep our body properly fueled it will sooner or later start to backfire and eventually breakdown. Try filling up your snow blower with sausage gravy the next time you need to dig out from a snowstorm and see how far it goes?
“Food can directly influence the firestorm of destruction inside your body. Will you continue to fuel the fire, or will you douse it by infusing your body with the particular and extensive nutrients it needs to best fight its way from the debilitating effects of an autoimmune condition back toward steadily greater health and vitality?”(Wahls) These are very powerful words that not enough people have heard yet. Are you always fatigued, mind is foggy and you are taking too many prescription drugs...sound familiar MSers? Chances are you are starving your mitochondria and in turn not letting your body function at a high level. Cramming down low grade ready-made meals every day is not helping your body fight the disease that is ruining your life; it’s actually making it easier for the disease to be victorious.
Two days with “The Wahls Protocol” and I can’t put it down, I keep reading and re-reading dumbfounded by the facts. This should be mandatory reading for everyone, there is no reason to continue feeding your disease, feed your body what it craves and it will make your journey a comfortable one!
