    Hard to say without a control. The TED talk led me to expect more.

      Lots of other links to books & previous research on her site.

      And you know what's really cool? Her son is Zach Wahls!

      Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

        Yes, it is.

          Don't forget that she started out using supplements to get everything she needed. She then designed her diet to cover all the vitamins and minerals she needed. So maybe you need to start with the supplements? Would be easier to get what you need taking a few pills than all that food.

          Hi all, I have MS and am intensely interested in Terry Wahl's protocol. I cannot eat 9 cups of food per day. So what I do is juice twice a day. I juice kale (sometimes spinach or parsley), 1/2-1 beet, 1 or 2 carrots, sometimes asparagus or broccoli ends, a small apple for taste. I also ride a stationary bike twice a day. So far I am still pretty crippled, but it has only been a few months. I was progressing pretty fast, having transitioned from relapsing/remitting MS to secondary progressive MS (after 12 years, I've had MS for 15 years now). I tried various non drug interventions, culminating in stem cells on 6 December 2011. Starting in January I have been doing the juicing. It took Terry 8 months, so it's only been 3 for me. I think it may be helping.

            While that is true it's is much less effective.
            It has been shown time and again in testing that isolated vitamins from supplements are much less effective than those from foods.

            Really probably better off juicing or blending and drinking some those veggies, and eating some, than taking a pill.

                I had no idea this was her son! What a tribute to her as a mother, I think both Dr. Wahls and her son are amazing people and we need more like them <3 Just wanted to say thanks for sharing, best wishes in the New Year!

                  Wow, this thread on food as medicine and research is so hopeful. Also looking forward to viewing all of Wahl's videos on youtube.
                  Thanks for all the info and to jammies for link to research on MS. I am a Social Worker with several clients with MS. Very interested in topic.

                    So, it sounds like part of the Wahls protocol requires the consumption of 9 cups of vegetables per day (specific veggies). 3 cups of veggies per meal if you do 3 meals a day -- is it really that difficult? Maybe I'll change my tune once I try it...
