In this episode of Align podcast, I speak with the brilliant Terry Wahls about all things surrounding the nervous system and how we can care for it. She explains why we need mitochondria and what our bodies require to have a healthy balance. We talk about what it actually means to have an autoimmune disease, how they happen and what factors may affect it. We also discuss the definition of pain, how we can regulate it, the evolution of our dietary habits, and how humans thrive with diverse food diets. Everyone has a different version of their ideal diet, and there is no such thing as wrong.
Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials in the setting of Multiple Sclerosis. In 2018 she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Linus Pauling Award for her contributions in research, clinical care and patient advocacy. She is the author of *The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles*, and the cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life.
