Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients' ailments with drugs or surgical procedures - until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.
Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology, and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. Dr. Wahl's adopted the nutrient-rich paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked 18 miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. Now, in The Wahls Protocol, she shares the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, get back to her life, and embark on a new mission: to share the Wahls Protocol with others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.
"For anyone suffering from autoimmune or other chronic health problems, this book will be life changing." (Mark Hyman, M.D., author of The Blood Sugar Solution)

Needs a PDF file with it
The book is great. Unfortunately the audio version leaves out info. that is available in the written book so you need a PDF to go with it.

Excellent but no food lists or recipes
Dr Wahls' own stories and those of her patients are totally inspirational, and the information on the three levels of diet and lifestyle are quite detailed. This audiobook does not include her food lists, recipes, or nutrient tables that the hardbound offers (granted these make for tedious reading and listening).
Her great success and determination to press forward with research.
