This is my beautiful and strong friend Lisa. She has overcome so much in her life and wants to help others do the same. Give this a read, I know you'll be inspired!!
I help people on the autoimmune spectrum implement the diet and lifestyle changes of The Wahls Protocol®. As someone who has lived with Multiple Sclerosis since 2011, I understand. I was on the disease modifying drugs for 6.5 years until my treatments were disrupted by an insurance gap. In those 6.5 years, I declined tremendously; and in September of 2017, my illness was so overwhelming that I could no longer function in my career (teacher). This brought life to a screaming halt.
Out of desperation to slow my decline for my family, I really dug into research about alternative MS treatments. Thankfully, I came across Dr. Terry Wahls’ inspirational TedTalk, “Minding Your Mitochondria.”
I finally found the resolution my body needed. I implemented the Wahls Protocol© in January of 2018 and my healing accelerated rapidly. The diet and lifestyle changes were POWERFUL. I could feel my body beginning to repair itself.
I was so impacted by my reclaimed health, I went back to school for Functional Nutritional Therapy and became a Wahls Protocol® Certified Health Practitioner. Together these two formidable certifications enhanced my understanding of disease, supported my healing, and helped me reconnect with my body as I addressed the root cause of my dysfunction.
In January of 2020, I published my book, Seven Seasons: A Journal of Healing My Multiple Sclerosis. This book is literally my journal of healing of my first seven seasons of implementing The Wahls Protocol®.
In March of 2020, I announced my Six Week Virtual Book Study, where I break down the diet and lifestyle components of the Wahls Protocol®, within my scope of practice as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I have created something that I wish I had when I started the protocol in January of 2018 as it was quite challenging through my brain fog to teach myself the protocol.
The preferred version of the book is the Revised and Expanded version of The Wahls Protocol® as it contains 30% new information, however the original version will work as well. This is a teaching book study, where I will present information to you and your group, chapter by chapter, via Zoom. This Six Week Virtual Book Study is excellent for someone who wants the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the diet and lifestyle changes outlined in The Wahls Protocol®.
In my Six Week Virtual Book Study, we also focus on developing community support. I wish I had that support when I began, so it is important to me that this is available to you. That being said, you will take what YOU need from this Six Week Virtual Book Study; whether it be the education, the support of a community, or both. To me, this is personal. To you, this is an amazing opportunity to empower yourself with this knowledge on your journey.
Join me for a 1 day/week, Six Week Virtual Book Study where I infuse my knowledge as a Wahls Protocol® Certified Health Practitioner and Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with my experience as a patient into a unique and comprehensive six-week educational program. My next Six Week Virtual Book Study begins April 1. Check it out!
To your healing journey!
