Boosting Mitochondrial Production to Improve Neurological Diseases

Boosting Mitochondrial Production to Improve Neurological Diseases

Natural Ways to Improve Neurological Diseases

Dr. Terry Wahls joins us again on The Randy and Christa Show to share the good news about what’s happened since her book, The Wahls Protocol, came out.

Not only are they seeing a huge improvement with MS and other neurological issues but also clinical trials are coming out favorable with the following results:

  • Blood sugar normalization
  • The reduction and elimination of many medications
  • Multiple autoimmune conditions are beginning to resolve
  • Thinking is improving
  • Pain reduction is considerable
  • Inflammatory bowel disease improvements

The Wahls Protocol embraces 5 key points:

1: Remove inflammation-producing foods (like gluten and casein)

2: Ramp up on sulfur-rich vegetables

3: Sufficient protein (not high protein, there’s a big difference)

4: Stress-Reducing practices

5: Increasing movement appropriately

Terry’s diet is aimed at feeding your cells what they need and constructing a lifestyle to reduce the toxic burden and stress hormone production.

It’s all about taking exceptional care of your mitochondria, which we learn in 8thgrade Biology, is the powerhouse of the cell

Mitochondria are found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. Inside our cells, mitochondria turn food and oxygen into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which produces energy.

Thus we cannot be or feel healthy until or less, we feed our mitochondria.

It is proven that when you feed your mitochondria, memory, focus, and attention improves and so do all kinds of conditions including:

  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Psoriasis
  • IBD
  • Crohn’s
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • MS
  • Parkinson’s
  • Early cognitive decline
  • PTSD

I love how Terry says, “when you feed the cells and the mitochondria what they need, they can begin repairing you molecule, by molecule, by correctly made molecule”.

I also love the closing thoughts she shares with our viewers.

“Food is critical.  It’s not the supplements that cured me.  It was the food that restored my health and vitality. It is the most important aspect of the choices we make”.

Let food be thy medicine, friends.

The more people that embrace that they have the power over their health based upon the quality of the food they eat, the more this will become a mainstream thought process and the better, healthier world we will live in.

Terry’s made huge strides with the MS society.  They are now reviewing diet and lifestyle strategies as a higher priority over disease-modifying drugs.

Have you had improvement in any of the conditions listed in this blog based upon diet and lifestyle changes? If so, please share with our community to help lift them up and inspire them.

We are all in this together.
