FUMS 113 - An Invitation From Dr. Terry Wahls To Be Part of Her Latest Study

FUMS: Giving Multiple Sclerosis The Finger

Aug 23 2022 • 19 mins

More and more often, we're all hearing and talking about the use of diet and lifestyle as a way to manage chronic illness - and not just on the FUMS Podcast! In this episode, Dr. Terry Wahls (now officially our most featured guest) is here to tell us all about how we can get involved in her latest study, which asks a couple of simple but important questions: Can diet improve my quality of life with MS? And which diet is the best?

If you don't know by now, Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials in the setting of Multiple Sclerosis. In 2018 she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine's Linus Pauling Award for her contributions to research, clinical care, and patient advocacy. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life.

As you'll hear, Dr. Wahls will be carrying out a long-form study - entitled Efficacy of Diet on Quality of Life in Multiple Sclerosis - which examines how a participant's quality of life is affected by one of three very different diets - Ketogenic, Modified Paleolithic, and usual diet.

And YOU could take part - even if you don't live in the US!


Topics covered in this episode include:

  • Details of Dr. Wahls' new study
  • What aspects are looked at to gauge Quality of Life?
  • How long will the study take? And who can take part?
  • A description of the three diets that will be used, how participants will be monitored, and details of the essential community element
  • Where to go to find out if you qualify to participate in the study
