Terry L. Wahls, clinical professor of medicine in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, will talk about her new book, The Wahls Protocol, at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at the Iowa City Public Library.

The Wahls Protocol outlines an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions, describing how the author's perspectives dramatically changed after her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis, and how she was able to reverse symptoms by combining a paleo diet and neuromuscular stimulation. In the book, she shares the details of the protocol to help others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.

Read a Be Remarkable profile of Dr. Wahls.

“In The Wahls Protocol, Dr. Wahls provides elegant first hand validation that diet truly represents the most powerful medicine. This book is totally supported by the most leading-edge research and provides a beacon of hope when compared to the ever-changing landscape of pharmaceutical recommendations for multiple sclerosis,” says David Perlmutter, board-certified neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition.

Wahls is the author of Minding My Mitochondria and the audio book Up From the Chair. She lives in Iowa City with her wife, Jackie.
