Veganville!

Fellow struggle bus victims—-

The daylight savings time change and the dreary weather has led to a slow Monday for me.  I am guessing that many of you are feeling the mullygrubs as well.  I’m sick of waiting for winter to finally break allowing those bright spring undertones to freshen our moods!  In effort to keep things lighthearted today–I have to share my man crush Justin Timberlake’s performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.  Love it!

However, I felt compelled to share this real life testimonial with you all for anyone who watched the inspiring Dr. Terry Wahl’s TED talk last week.  The more research I do, the more patient testimonials I find.  This 7 minute video is by a young gal with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis.  She shares her progress on her blog and in this you tube video.  Eat those veggies!  And bring it on down to VEGANVILLE!

Food can cure multiple sclerosis????

 

I recently stumbled upon this amazing story and can’t help but want to share it with you.  Ten years ago when I was first starting out in medicine, I would have laughed at this quackery.  However, when you get some experience under your belt and start getting dissatisfied with the constant game of treating symptom after symptom without getting to the root causes of disease, you open your mind a little.  I encourage anyone who has a family member or friend affected my multiple sclerosis to watch this video.  It is a little long and rather scientific but its worth some attention. Dr Terry Wahls is a physician that actually used diet to improve her disease. This Ted talk gives her story in a nutshell and you can learn more at the Wahls Foundation.
