About Terry Wahls MD Research Fund

Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa within the department of Internal Medicine. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, 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: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions. The research team conducts clinical trials that test the effect of nutrition and lifestyle interventions to treat MS, and through her research and developing the Wahls Protocol, she has helped thousands of individuals around the world reverse or stop the progression of their diseases.

Proceeds from this event will be directed to the Terry Wahls MD Research Fund at the University of Iowa Center for Advancement. Your support for research efforts at the University of Iowa make it possible for the Wahls research team to conduct basic science studies which help understand the mechanisms of why the intervention of the Wahls Protocol is so effective. Private support is the only way that this research has been made possible.
