The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles
Fully expanded with new information and updated research, a clear prescriptive guide about how to beat autoimmune conditions using functional medicine and nutrient-rich foods, from a doctor, researcher, and sufferer of progressive multiple sclerosis.
The Wahls Protocol has become a sensation, transforming the lives of people with autoimmune diseases. Now in this fully revised edition, Dr. Terry Wahls outlines the latest research that validates the program and offers new, powerful tools to arm readers and helps them achieve total health.
The Wahls Protocol comes out of Dr. Wahls’ own quest to treat the debilitating symptoms she experienced as a sufferer of progressive MS. Informed by science, she began using Paleo principles as guidelines for her unique, nutrient-rich plan. This book shares Dr. Wahls’ astonishing personal story of recovery and details the program, with up-to-date research she’s now conducting at the University of Iowa.
Split into three different levels, this updated edition allows readers to choose the modified Wahls Diet if they’re new to the regime, the Wahls Paleo Diet if they’re ready to amp up their health, or the more advanced Wahls Paleo Plus Diet if they need more aggressive treatment. They can also incorporate the just-added Wahls Elimination Diet into their plan to pinpoint individual food sensitivities, so their diet is as personal as ever.
With new recipes and content on intermittent fasting and how the protocol impacts the microbiome, The Wahls Protocol is a key addition to the “whole food” revolution, and a deeply moving, results-driven testimonial to the healing power of food.

Reviews about the ebook The Wahls Protocol
- Rob Art:
I admit it’s very likely that the only reason I even heard of Dr. Terry Wahls in the first place was that I have MS. This is a shame. I believe I have a responsibility to help spread the word and get the information out there. Even though I’m definitely NOT grateful for having this disease, I truly believe my loved ones, future children and I obtained the most valuable information we have come across as a consequence of my MS. I promise this is not an overstatement. I started following an early, basic version of the Wahls Protocol the day after watching Dr. Wahls’ TEDx Talk last October. I explored her website, read and listened to countless interviews, and read her first book Minding my Mitochondria- and in November 2013 I started a more strict approach to diet and lifestyle based on her recommendations. It was hard for my wife to live with these changes and have to put up with my new dietary limitations, but I did it anyway. I have to admit I did NOT really feel anything different at this point.In March 2014 everything changed. The Wahls Protocol was finally released (I had pre-ordered since November). I gave the book a first read in less than 24 hrs and immediately had ten times more information. In this book, Dr. Wahls goes into detail about every aspect of the dietary and lifestyle changes she recommends, which includes supplements, exercise, electrical stimulation, meditation, etc., and she details three different versions of the Wahls diet so anyone can find a level they can learn to live with.
This is where it gets interesting. I actually convinced my wife and my mother to read the book and follow different levels of the protocol with me for one month. Just to give it a test drive. It has been three weeks today, and the results have been noticeable:
– I have RRMS and am still in the early stages of the disease so when I’m in remission, which is 90% of the time, I have no symptoms. Or so I thought! It turns out, I actually DID have fatigue issues and brain fog! These things have probably been developing slowly inside me for years so I didn’t even notice them until I was gone! In ONLY three weeks I have felt a real change and am honestly amazed at how different I feel. I know it sounds hard to believe, but you have to try before you judge. I have been on the Wahls Paleo (i.e. intermediate level of the diet).
I personally haven’t completely applied the principles of this book The Wahls Protocol, but I have liked the changes I did make. I found out about it from my daughter-in-law. She has MS, and doing this diet — she does the Paleo level— has totally changed her life.
She can work now, and at a job where she’s on her feet the whole time, sometimes until midnight, whereas before she could do very little and it could take months to bounce back from a relapse.
At one point she was even getting special shots for knee pain at $800 a pop so she could even walk. Those are completely unnecessary now. She’s always been pretty, but she’s glowing now.
My son no longer has to take care of her in the way he had to before and even though he has no health problems, he’s felt better eating this way, too. I just can’t say how grateful I am to Dr. Wahls for making this available.
Well written, well documented, and extremely interesting – a must-read for everyone with chronic health issues. Or everyone who works with conventional medicine and thinks diet and lifestyle is just a cute add on in treatment buy ebook The Wahls Protocol.
- Med Adbib:
Unfortunately, conventional medicine has a systematic yet academic view of autoimmune diseases like MS which jeopardize the health of many people due to the misunderstanding of the scientific facts described by terry, and her book The Wahls Protocol, as well as her personal story, are in my opinion the ultimate proof of the veracity of this conclusion, I am grateful for having bought it before taking a risk using drogues, the protocol and the lifestyle presented will have a positive impact on the situation of any individual suffering from MS even those with an advanced state, and as multiple sclerosis patients my self, I am now living my life to the fullest by means of the protocol so I highly recommend it to all MS patients.
I bought this book The Wahls Protocol as I have a chronic autoimmune condition and doctors can’t help much without filling me with dangerous tablets which I always refused. I’ve been controlling symptoms with diet but felt I needed to be more strict and get more knowledge about what helps and what doesn’t. This book helped me a lot. Very easy to understand even for people without medical knowledge, very well structured, and interesting. Doesn’t seem that you are reading a medical book or anything. I read it in a week on my holidays. Everyone should read this book The Wahls Protocol and try to follow the diet as close as possible even without an autoimmune condition. I’m glad I bought it and wish I have done it sooner. Many people wouldn’t need medication if they practiced a good diet. Everyone must read this book but especially if you have autoimmune, cancer, diabetes, asthma, vascular conditions, cardiac conditions, fertility problems, and undiagnosed conditions. I’m the cooker in the house and very slowly and progressively will put everyone on this diet (don’t say anything) 😉
