Paleo – A Cure for Disease?


Paleo – A Cure for Disease?

CrossFit and the paleo lifestyle have become seemingly synonymous. But paleo is not just about getting fitter and faster; it’s about fueling our bodies with proteins and fats and nutrients that enable us to be healthy and stave of disease. Did you ever think it might be able to cure disease? The video below from a TEDx community event in Iowa City features Dr. Terry Wahls. Diagnosed with MS, Dr. Wahls experienced dramatic changes to her physicality and lifestyle. Unwilling to become a victim of this disease, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Using her existing medical knowledge and a desire to better her situation, Dr. Wahls used her diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair. The answer: paleo. In this video, Dr. Wahls talks about the science of nutrition and the undeniable impact the “hunter and gatherer’ diet had on her life and on her disease.
