Terry Wahls is another example of a miraculous recovery after rejecting standard medical advice. But, in this case it was a mainstream MD who had this experience. Terry Wahls tells David about her descent into Multiple Sclerosis (MS) over a period of years, until she got to the point where she could no longer work, and spent most of her time in a wheelchair. She had found that a so-called “paleo” diet (heavy on meats, including fat, and vegetables, with few carbohydrates) had stopped her symptoms from worsening, but was not helping her improve. She used her still functioning mind to design her diet more scientifically, and then within a few months she was walking without assistance, and within a year rode a bicycle 30 kilometers.
Terry was anxious to share her personal discovery and, in doing so, discovered that it worked for many modern diseases, that are created or exacerbated by the modern low fat, high carbohydrate diet. This eventually led to her book, “The Wahls Protocol” and also dietary research on MS and other diseases.
This is a fascinating discussion that will probably lead many listeners to read her book or recommend it to others. You can find more at http://terrywahls.com, including how to read a sample or obtain a copy of her book, watch videos, and donate to her research projects.
In Episode 46 David interviews Helen Caldicott, a physician who has fought against nuclear power and nuclear weapons for decades. She has led movements against nuclear testing and nuclear power, has written books, and has spoken all over the world. In this episode David and Helen talk mainly about nuclear power, and particularly about the problem of nuclear waste, about so-called environmentalists who see nuclear power as a solution to global warming, and about solutions to the energy crisis through alternatives. Helen discusses a report that she commissioned indicating that a full transition to alternative energy is feasible.
Helen is participating in a Symposium, “The Dynamics of Possible Nuclear Extinction” from February 28-March 1, 2015 at The New York Academy of Medicine.
