Today I want to share an amazing, inspiring video with you.
It’s the incredible story of a wheelchair-bound doctor with advanced multiple sclerosis (MS) who actually conquered her illness with food.
This isn’t supposed to be possible
Modern medicine considers MS to be irreversible. Doctors continue to believe there’s “no cure” for it, thus sentencing MS patients to a slow death.
But after physician Dr. Terry Wahls, a strong proponent of “by the book” conventional medicine, was diagnosed, she decided to venture outside of the standard medical protocol.
Why? Because modern medicine provided no improvement or hope for her. None.
In fact, she deteriorated so quickly on conventional treatment that she was soon wheelchair-bound and forced to use a reclining chair because her muscles couldn’t keep her body upright.
And this was from the best MS treatment in the US
“In 2000, when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I turned to the best MS center I could find: The Cleveland Clinic,” says Dr. Wahls. “I saw the best doctors, received the best care possible, and took the latest drugs.”
But by 2003, her condition had advanced to secondary progressive MS. Even though she was prescribed the newest MS drugs (Tysabri and then Cellcept), she continued to become more severely disabled.
She ventured “outside the box” to save her own life
Desperate to save herself, Wahls poured over the latest animal research on other brain-shrinking diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s.
She noted that studies on mice with these conditions showed positive results when the animals were given fish oil, creatine and CoQ10. When she started taking these supplements, her deterioration slowed, but did not stop.
Other research uncovered positive benefits from additional supplements — and by then Dr. Wahls was swallowing a fistful of vitamins and nutrients daily.
Then her breakthrough came
Suddenly it dawned on her. She was missing three opportunities every day to increase her intake of these important healing nutrients. That’s right, her meals.
So Dr. Wahls radically revamped her diet — and then her miracle happened.
“For seven years, while receiving the best medical care from the best doctors … I grew steadily weaker and ever more disabled. In November 2007 I couldn’t even sit in a standard upright wheelchair. That’s when I created a special diet for my brain cells and my mitochondria.”

Three months later, Dr. Wahls was walking!
In January 2008, just three months after starting her new diet, Dr. Wahls was walking between exam rooms using just a cane.
By March, she was striding through the hospital on her rounds unaided.
In May, she got on her bicycle for the first time in nearly a decade, and rode it around the block.
And in September, she rode 18 miles — and the following year she participated in a long distance ride through the Canadian Rockies!”
Talk about a miracle.
If you’ve ever doubted the healing power of pure, natural food, you must watch this moving video.
In it, Dr. Wahls describes exactly what she ate to bring herself back from the death’s doorstep. After carefully examining her diet, I have no doubt that it could improve the vast majority of medical conditions afflicting Americans today.
“Food is your best medicine”
That’s our credo and our mission here at MyHealingKitchen.com. And every week we receive proof of the marvelous healing power of food and nutrition from readers and members who have conquered numerous medical conditions and found new health.
Please don’t believe the skepticism of doctors and modern medicine regarding food and nutrition.
Like Dr. Wahls, before she discovered the healing power of food, doctors know next to nothing about nutrition — nor the nutritional causes of today’s most common ills.
Still, they never hesitate to disparage diet and exalt pharmaceutical drugs.
Your cure is within your grasp
Please don’t give up hope — or stop trying.
Dr. Wahls’ example provides all of us with dramatic proof that many (if not most) of today’s so-called “incurable” diseases can be turned around simply by feeding your cells the nutrients they need to repair and rejuvenate your body and mind.
This is especially true for such medical conditions as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis — and perhaps even Alzheimer’s and many cancers.
The reason for this is simple, though perhaps not obvious to most of us.
We are eating a “disease diet”
Our modern diet simply doesn’t provide our cells with the nutrition they need to keep our bodies healthy.
If you doubt it, take a look at this photo…
Photo from the book, Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio
This is a photo of a North Carolina family and a week’s supply of the foods they typically eat.
Notice that the only living, natural foods in the display are a few packages of meat, three tomatoes, two bunches of grapes, and a couple of potatoes and onions. Everything else they eat is processed.
There’s just no way that a diet such as this, week in and week out, can supply the human body with the nutrition required to remain healthy, let alone fight off a medical condition.
This is the real reason that whole, natural foods can have such profound “healing” effects: Because they fill the nutritional void created by our modern carbs-and-chemicals diet which invites disease and sickness into our distressed bodies and lives.
