Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions by a doctor, researcher, and sufferer of progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) whose TEDx talk is already a web sensation

and#160;

Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patientsand#8217; ailments with drugs or surgical proceduresand#151;until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.

and#160;

Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology, and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. Dr. Wahls adopted the nutrient-rich paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. Now, inand#160;The Wahls Protocol,and#160;she shares the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, get back to her life, and embark on a new mission: to share the Wahls Protocol with others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.

Synopsis:

Raw, cooked, and gluten-free meals from the founder of the national award-winning healthy-snack company Two Moms in the Raw

Within just a few days, Shari Leidich, a mother of three,and#160;went from working out daily and hiking in the nearby Rocky Mountains to beingand#160;barely ableand#160;to hold a pen. The diagnosis: MS. Gradually, thanks to a diet rich in raw foods,and#160;she returned to her former energetic self. For the long term, though, she knew sheand#160;had to create meals that she would find satisfyingand#160;and that her husband and threeand#160;children would love as well. And they had to be quick and easy.

Many of the 130-plus dishes, like Brunchy Poached Eggs on Spinach with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, or Plum and Tatsoi Salad, are riots of color. Most can be on the table before the kids can even complain theyand#39;re hungry. Indulgent snacks like Creamy Olive and Artichoke Dipand#160;and Butternut-Lemongrass Soupand#160;satisfy cravings, and chicken and fishandmdash;Single-Skillet Chicken Puttanesca, Chard-Wrapped Mahi-Mahiandmdash;come bolsteredand#160;with plenty of raw produce and grains. Desserts ditch processed sugar in favor of natural sweeteners and power nutrients.

The story of a quest for healing, Two Moms in the Raw is a keep-it-real guide to eating well for anyone who wants to get back on track, enjoy greater vitality, reduce stress, and achieve their best health.
