Can Food Heal MY BRAIN?
I was recently reading Baffled’s blog, Infinite Daze, (great blog to check out if you haven’t already) and she had posted a video. I decided to watch it in full (or more accurately listen to it) and by the end, I was jumping up and down with excitement! I just had to share it here and tell you why I am excited.
Dr. Terry Wahl was diagnosed with MS (which we know is similar in how it operates in the body to other autoimmune illness and ME) and told that she would be okay for 10 years and then it would get bad. However, she rapidly declined within 3 years.
Not one to sit around, she started looking to medicine for the answer. However, her journey finally led her to herbs and then to organic, wholesome food.
Here is the stunning result, though. She is now completely well from MS and she did it all through supplements (herbal) and diet. Mainly an intensive approach in which she used food as medicine.
And she did this by figuring out what the brain needed as far as supplements and nutrients, created an eating plan and supplement plan to feed it that, and the body and her brain, basically healed themselves!
I was so freakin’ excited after seeing that video, I cannot even put it into words. If she could do this with her diet, then maybe I can do this with the FMS and ME and my eyes would get better which is the last remmenant I am dealing with from the poisoning.
Not only that, but any possibility at getting well or improving dramatically! Well, I’m in. All the way in. As a matter of fact, I ordered her book, Minding My Mitochondria 2nd Edition: How I overcame secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and got out of my wheelchair. which I will be getting tomorrow.
I have every intention of doing the diet and of letting everyone here know how I am doing. The amazing thing is that the diet will only require me tweaking my current diet just a bit – letting go of grains and sugar – and that’s it.
Oh, one other thing! As you know I have added Yoga to my daily routine and the results have been amazing. In the video she states that Yoga is a great exercise because it stimulates the neurons in the brain! I thought I was going to spit my drink out!
I’m really becoming convinced that my recovery was from detoxing, yoga, the Amazing Grass shakes and eating as I do. And I think Dr. Wahl has just solidified that for me.
Anyway, I’m adding the video below. You can visit Dr. Wahl’s websites here and here.
If you are interested, after watching the video, of doing this journey with me, please let me know. A few of us on Facebook have decided to start doing it together next week. The more the merrier. And it would be great to know how other people are faring.
I cannot wait to see the energy increase! Woo Hoo! I am stoked!
Determined to continue forward,
