We have been following The Wahls Protocol for 6 weeks. My husband (57 yrs old) has been exhibiting Parkinson's symptoms and has been seeing a neurologist since July, 2011.
In just 6 weeks his PD symptoms show significant reversal. The most dramatic is the restoration of his balance and the return of his normal walking gait. Also affected: asthma gone in one week, blood pressure normal, speech clear, normal sleep patterns, more energy, consistently brighter mood. He has been an exercise enthusiast since age 21, which has certainly been a factor in his enduring strength and quick recovery. His right side is regaining strength, becoming more balanced each day.
We started to re-introduce foods at 5 weeks on the 4-day rotation and found that sweet potatoes work fine but dairy showed up within hours- general digestive upset, headache, slurred speech and nasal/throat congestion/drip. Amazing! We will continue with grain free, legume free, dairy free, 12 cups of vegetables, etc, until all symptoms are gone before we add anything.
Thank you, Dr. Wahls, this is very exciting!
