Why do you eat what you eat? (Pt 2)

You may have heard of Terry Wahls, a doctor who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000. By 2007, she had to use a special tilt-recline wheelchair to get about, and expected to become bedridden. She was taking all the latest drugs, but none of them helped. Later, she changed her diet to: "greens, sulfur-rich, color, grass-fed meat, organ meat and seaweed" (ie. whole, unprocessed foods), and not long after, Dr. Wahls was able to walk around without a cane and even completed an 18-mile bicycle tour.

In the TEDx video below, Dr. Wahls talks about her illness, how the hunter-gatherer diet reversed her MS symptoms, and how the diet is heaps more nutritious than the diets prescribed by the USDA food pyramid, American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association and everyday physicians.

Watch it. (More information about the hunter-gatherer (aka Paleo) diet can be found here.)
