Dr. Terry Wahls
I have known about Dr. Terry Wahls and her amazing story for a number of years. Two years ago, I wrote a blog post about her here. In this lecture, in her life, Dr. Wahls presents a "possibility" - she presents something specific that we can do. These ideas are not necessarily new, which is another strength to her proposition. Some things need repeating, and Dr. Wahls does an excellent job.
Many of the posts that I write covering research and treatments for ME/CFS are "abstractions". They are either in the future, just outside of our reach, or perhaps do not meet our requirements. Dr. Wahls presents something different, something on which we can get our grasp. These nutritional ideas are firmly rooted in scientific inquiry.
It is painfully obvious that ME/CFS involves some level of mitochondrial dysfunction. There is no question that mitochondria can be influenced by various factors.
Dr. Terry Wahls does an excellent job in advancing her ideas, born out of her own experience, in the following video.
