Terry Wahls wrote The Wahls Protocol® — A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles — to help guide people in reclaiming their own health. Terry had advanced multiple sclerosis and she was able to reverse that naturally using nutrition, lifestyle changes, and following an auto-immune Paleo protocol.

Terry is actually interviewing Dr. Jockers today as part of her Neuro-Immune Disease Summit, and the two of them are chatting about advanced nutrition strategies, mitochondrial health, and intermittent fasting (and how it supports the gut microbiome).

Learn about the best healing foods to combat inflammation, how we can measure inflammation in our body, the role of insulin in our body, reducing oxidative stress, the wonders of intermittent fasting, and more in this illuminating episode of Functional Nutrition that ticks all the boxes. Please join us.


“I’m a huge advocate of one day a week doing a deeper autophagy fast. Where one day a week you do something like a 20 to 24-hour fast. And you push your system a little bit more.”   

-Dr. David Jockers
