41 days of the Wahls Protocol Diet
The Mrs continues to get stronger. No wheelchair, walker, or cane for weeks now. Clarity of thought improved and improving. Morale and outlook improved and improving. Reduced need for pain medication. Slow and persistent weight loss. Clothes bought a month ago are too large.
As for me … Slow and persistent weight loss. Clothes bought a month ago are too large. Generally improved feelings of health. Easier to walk on bad knee.
No hunger pangs.
Wahls Protocol Day Zero
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Me too.
Today is Day Zero of the Mrs and me beginning The Wahls Protocol. No idea what I am talking about? Go back and read my post on The Wahls Protocol.
Terry Wahls is within a year in age of my wife and I. Like Jess, in The Nudist War, Terry Wahls has Multiple Sclerosis. No one … and I do mean no one … knows what causes MS. No one knows a cure for it. Treatments exist, but they are fraught with side effects, nasty organ destroying side effects.
Terry Wahls tackled her own MS by researching the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. needed by our mitochondria. Within a year she went from lying on a reclining ‘zero-G’ chair to riding her bicycle. Seriously go back and watch the video.
As I said, Wahls is the same age as the Mrs. Her MS presented itself at about the same time as it did in the Mrs. When I said that no one knows the cause or cure for MS, I should have said that ‘officially’ no one knows the cause or cure. However I believe that Wahls has a clue, and it’s a clue that applies to ALL of us.
Today the Mrs and I went to Sprouts and bought all manner of fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. We also went to our nearby JCPenney and purchased a Nutri Bullet. This is not an endorsement of Sprouts, JCPenney, or the Nutri Bullet. Just details. In fact the first Nutri Bullet failed to work right out of the box. A bad omen?
What do I expect to see if this actually works?
I will update you from time to time with our progress.
From The Nudist War – Day 43
Jess was officially diagnosed with MS ten years ago, not long after she posted for the position at the CDC in Atlanta. She noticed that she had a “floater” in her left eye that didn’t go away. When she saw her Ophthalmologist he diagnosed her with optic neuritis, for which he prescribed a course of oral steroids to reduce the inflammation. “One thing you should know,” he told her, “there is a good chance that you have Multiple Sclerosis. Let me refer you to a Neurologist who specializes in MS treatment. She’s the best one in Atlanta.” After a CT scan, several MRIs and lumbar punctures, the diagnosis was in. “Ms. Munroe, I am so sorry to have to tell you this. The MRI analyses and spinal fluid tests both indicate positive for Multiple Sclerosis.”

Maybe I should put Jess on this diet.
