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).

“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
