When Canadian Matt Embry was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1995 at age 19, he was devastated. However, with the help of his father who is an MD, Matt decided to find holistic ways of handling the disease without drugs. Matt and his father used a triple approach of diet, exercise, and the CCSVI medical intervention to remove blockages in his jugular veins. Matt has been healthy for 25 years.
Matt created his MS Hope site to inform people newly diagnosed or currently dealing with MS about the approach he uses. He also challenged the MS Society of Canada for its failure to offer solutions other than drugs. Matt has traveled all across Canada, Europe, and the US giving talks.
Matt’s inspiring saga is told in the 2017 film Living Proof which is available on Amazon Prime. Note: There is a 2008 film also called Living Proof about a doctor looking for a cure for breast cancer!
Dr. Terry Wahls’ Remarkable Recovery
Dr. Terry Wahls’ remarkable recovery from MS is touched on in Living Proof. Her inspiring story underscores the importance of diet. In 2007, Dr. Wahls was hopeless, confined to a wheelchair with MS. However, when she switched to an organic diet in 2007, she recovered so quickly that 12 months later, she was able to go on an 18-mile bike ride and go for hikes in the mountains! She also rides horses now.
Dr. Wahls is the author of several books. Her latest is the 2014 book The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles.
Fully expanded with new information and updated research, a clear prescriptive guide about how to beat autoimmune conditions using functional medicine and nutrient-rich foods, from a doctor, researcher, and sufferer of progressive multiple sclerosis.
The Wahls Protocol has become a sensation, transforming the lives of people with autoimmune diseases. Now in this fully revised edition, Dr. Terry Wahls outlines the latest research that validates the program and offers new, powerful tools to arm readers and help them achieve total health.
The Wahls Protocol comes out of Dr. Wahls’ own quest to treat the debilitating symptoms she experiences as a sufferer of progressive MS. Informed by science, she began using Paleo principles as guidelines for her unique, nutrient-rich plan. This book shares Dr. Wahls’ astonishing personal story of recovery and details the program, with up-to-date research she’s now conducting at the University of Iowa.
Split into three different levels, this updated edition allows readers to choose the modified Wahls Diet if they’re new to the regime, the Wahls Paleo Diet if they’re ready to amp up their health, or the more advanced Wahls Paleo Plus Diet if they need more aggressive treatment. They can also incorporate the just-added Wahls Elimination Diet into their plan to pinpoint individual food sensitivities, so their diet is as personal as ever. With new recipes and content on intermittent fasting and how the protocol impacts the microbiome, The Wahls Protocol is a key addition to the “whole food” revolution, and a deeply moving, results-driven testimonial to the healing power of food.
Dr. Wahls had an “Ah-ha” moment when she asked, “What if I redesigned my diet?” Within three months of changing her diet, she was up walking again! Within six months, she got on her bike for the first time in six years and went around the block. In a year, she did an 18-mile bike ride with her family.
The chief of medicine at the University of Iowa asked Dr. Wahls to run her own clinic where she helps other MS patients. With progressive MS, a 10-20% decline every year is typical. However, at her clinic, patients have experienced dramatic improvements. Dr. Wahls says that people with other diseases like Parkinson’s and dementia can also get their lives back. She advises people to visit her site to learn how to switch from disease-promoting to health-promoting diets. She says to never give up!
The Institute For Functional Medicine includes a description of Dr. Wahls’ work.
See Functional Medicine: 21st Century Healthcare for more information about this paradigm shift.

Register for The Wahls Protocol Seminar Virtual Experience on Dr. Wahl’s site which says:
It has never been more critical for you to have a guide who knows the functional and integrative medicine approach to creating optimal health. Our conventional colleagues are not equipped to answer these questions. They don’t know how to guide patients through diet, lifestyle, supplement use, and the functional medicine approach to optimizing health and reducing the risk of severe complications that may arise from infection and disease. You need information and support now. For the first time ever, The Wahls Protocol® Seminar is coming to you! I am leading an exclusive, 3-month immersion built around a brand new theme with even more content than before.
Wahls Warriors’ Testimonials
In a video on the Amazon site, Dr. Wahls’ patients explain what they love about being “Wahls Warriors”! One patient says that what he likes best is the scientific basis for “food as medicine”. Another patient says that the best part is taking hold of your health and seeing results. Another patient points out the feeling of support in a group on the right path led by Dr. Wahls who bases her protocol on her own experience backed up by science and by trials. The video on the Amazon site includes the song “Making Me Well” inspired by and dedicated to Dr. Wahl’s mission.
