After three years of a low-carb/ketogenic diet to reverse type 2 diabetes, I am constantly amazed by emerging news of many other incredible stories of its effects on other conditions, one of which is highlighted here with the miraculous story of Dr Terry Wahls, a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa, USA where she teaches internal medicine residents in their primary care clinics. She also does clinical research and has published over 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers.
In addition to being a doctor, she is also a patient with a chronic, progressive disease. She was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis in 2000. By 2003 she had transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis and underwent chemotherapy in an attempt to slow the disease and began using wheelchair because of weakness in her back muscles. Hoping to find something to arrest her descent and becoming bedridden she searched many scientific articles about the latest multiple sclerosis research. Slowly she created a list of nutrients important to brain health and began taking them as supplements and later as real food. The result of her redesigned diet stunned her doctor and her family and within a year she was able to walk without a cane and even completed an 18-mile bicycle tour.
