The Paleo diet used by Dr. Terry Wahls features a back-to-basics way of eating that is sometimes referred to as the "Hunter-Gatherer Diet." According to Wahls, whose diet, known as "The Wahls Protocol," is detailed in a book by the same name, she beat multiple sclerosis by following Paleo eating principles and using functional medicine techniques.
After following "The Wahls Protocol," Wahls was able to leave her wheelchair behind after one year and began to walk without the use of a cane. She also used neuromucular electrical stimulation to help overcome her disease.
Wahls is a staff physician working at Iowa City Veterans Affairs Hospital, as noted on TerryWahls.com.
