Today we have a very special guest, Dr. Terry Wahls. She healed herself from progressive MS and now conducts clinical trials testing the efficacy of therapeutic lifestyle to treat multiple sclerosis related symptoms. In this episode we dive into lifestyle and diet changes that promote good health. We discuss:
- How many cups of vegetables to eat per day
- Adjusting your diet based on what your looks like
- Finding your "why" behind a big lifestyle change
- Why your mitochondria matter
When the mitochondria are working well, that tissue, that organ, works really well -Terry Wahls, MD
She believes healing doesn’t happen from just one thing, but a whole lifestyle approach. As a part of her practice, she has her patients ask themselves questions like “How can I live a more meaningful life in my current health circumstances?”
Tune in to find out how to optimize your health by giving attention not only to healing any specific ailments you might have, but also to your mental state, your diet, your physical activity, your life purpose and more.
