(NaturalHealth365) Can multiple sclerosis (MS) be cured? The National Multiple Sclerosis Society says ‘not yet’. Dr. Otis W. Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society admits that “available treatments of primary and secondary progressive MS are of limited efficacy and have significant side effects.” Yet, despite this gloomy outlook by conventional medicine, Dr. Terry Wahls cured herself of MS naturally without harmful medications.
Drugs are NOT the answer! The average MS patient will spend around $30,000, per year, on medications that offer no hope for reversing this condition. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Dr. Wahls – who spent 4 years confined to a wheelchair – will outline the Wahls Protocol™ – including her personal (and professional) success.

The connection between a ‘leaky gut’ and multiple sclerosis symptoms
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS “is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder, in which the immune system incorrectly attacks healthy tissue in the CNS.” What they don’t talk about is the intimate relationship between digestive health and immune function. A poor diet and stressful lifestyle can lead to a ‘leaky gut’ – which allows harmful toxins and waste to pass through the intestines, into the blood and central nervous system. (CNS)
In a recent study published in PLOS ONE, researchers at Lund University in Sweden have been able to show the connection between the breakdown of the intestines and multiple sclerosis. The lead author, Shahram Lavasani, Ph.D., set out to study intestinal tissue from mice infected with multiple sclerosis and the findings were quite surprising.
Lavasani discovered that leaky gut was involved in MS and that gut inflammation was apparent – even before MS symptoms appeared. Clearly, this study highlights the impact of untreated digestive inflammation on the severity of multiple sclerosis.
On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Terry Wahls, M.D. will talk about how to heal the gut, improve immune function and, naturally, reverse multiple sclerosis symptoms without harmful medications.
Most MS patients are NOT being told the truth about their condition
Most children, born today, come into this world with over 200 synthetic compounds such as, plastics, heavy metals, solvents and pesticides. As we continue to grow, eat and live, the body accumulates more and more of these harmful substances which breakdown liver, kidney and immune function. These same toxins also stress out the digestive system – which leads to a higher risk of immune disorders like, MS.
Dr. Wahls encourages every MS patient to avoid the genetic ‘blame game’. Too many people blame their DNA for their health problems. When, in reality, genes only account for about 5% – 15% of all chronic diseases. Gene expression (and the development of disease) is largely controlled by what we choose to do. Are you eating a healthy diet? Do you exercise or not? How do you reduce stress in your life?
In other words, your lifestyle matters – start making changes today. Improve your relationships, spend more time in nature and don’t miss our next show – it will be truly inspirational!
This week’s guest: Terry Wahls, M.D., creator of the Wahls Protocol™
Learn how to completely REVERSE the symptoms of multiple sclerosis naturally – Sun. Oct. 19
Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa and a staff physician at the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Hospital, where she teaches medical students and resident physicians, sees patients in traumatic brain injury and therapeutic lifestyle clinics with complex chronic health problems that often include multiple autoimmune disorders, and conducts clinical trials.
She is also a patient with a chronic progressive neurological disorder, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. But thanks to the power of the Wahls Protocol™, which is based on Functional Medicine and the Wahls Paleo™ diet, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now pedals her bike five miles to work each day.
Defeat MS with the right diet and lifestyle choices. Did you know that brains affected by MS shrink over time? Like all brain-affected disorders, it’s the mitochondria that fail to work well leading to greater disease symptoms. Yet, with the right nutrition, we can protect our body from disease with healthy fats, lots of antioxidants plus many other neuroprotective nutrients designed to improve brain chemistry.
Dr. Wahls and Jonathan Landsman invite you to learn more about the Wahls Protocol and how to completely reverse the symptoms of MS.
