Dr. Terry Wahls has found that the standard American diet, which is high in carbohydrate and processed foods and grains, activates 65 genes that drive chronic disease. This is consistent with the latest research in epigenetic activity. After extensive scientific and anecdotal research, Dr. Wahls findings concludes that the correction of micronutrient deficiencies will reverse many of our chronic ills.
The Wahls Protocol is a diet that focuses on protecting the brain’s myelin and supporting the body’s mitochondria. Dr. Wahls says that a diet rich in non-starchy vegetables, green leaves, whole fruits, and protein will turn on 72 genes that “down regulate” inflammation molecules. Dr. Wahls’ book “Minding My Mitochondria” is available on amazon.com. For more information check out our earlier blog post that outlines the Wahls Protocol.
