Dear Friend,

My name is Dr. Terry Wahls, and I have MS (multiple sclerosis). This is an autoimmune disease wherein the body’s own immune system attacks the central nervous system. No specific cause for MS has yet been identified, however contributing factors such as environment, viral, immune dysfunction, and genetic predisposition have been linked to the disease.

I was initially diagnosed with MS (relapsing-remitting type) in 2000 at The Cleveland Clinic. I was treated with different disease modifying medications to no avail. By 2003 my MS had transitioned to secondary progressive MS, which is the more severe type that responds poorly to treatment. I had many problems including difficulty with walking, poor balance, and poor coordination. I went from using a cane, or a ski pole to a scooter, and then to a tilt-recline wheelchair.

Over the three years that followed, I only became weaker.


Medicines prescribed for MS, or any other disease, may control symptoms but if you want to be healed, you must eat the foods that your body needs and stay away from environmental chemicals.

My book is where you will begin to understand these building blocks so you can make daily dietary choices that can help you recover from and prevent disease!

Do you know what foods will make you stronger, and what  foods will make you weaker?





The vast majority of relapsing-remitting MS patients will convert to secondary progressive MS within twenty-five years.

It is important to all families whose lives have been touched by MS to evaluate what you can do to slow the progression of the disease and stay ambulatory as long as possible.

If your brains cells lack the proper building blocks to conduct the biology of life, important molecules get made incorrectly or not at all.  This means DAMAGE happens.   If you want to slow the damage, or better yet, repair the damage, then you need to know the essential building blocks that brain cells need.

It’s unlikely you’ll restore normal walking or strength without finding a way to lower the inflammation and repair the damage that is occurring to your brain and spinal cord.  

But ninety percent of Americans eat foods that fail to provide enough of what your brain cells need to do the everyday work of being you.  

If you want a healthier brain, it is important to know the key building blocks that your brain cells and mitochondria need to conduct the biology of life properly.   Minding My Mitochondria uses layman’s terms teach you which vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fats are critical for manufacturing myelin and neurotransmitters. 

More importantly, Dr. Wahls identifies the best food sources for those nutrients and explains how to eat for maximal health and vitality. She also goes into other interventions that she used in order to gain mobility and function.

As you explore these interventions, you too might find greater mobility and strength!

What People Are Saying...

“Dr. Wahls has provided us with a book that covers a whole range of issues involved in this complex disorder. Too many physicians do not understand the critical role nutrition plays in brain health. This book is a valuable resource (for anyone) to learn how to eat for optimal brain health.”

- E. Torage Shivapour, MD Professor of Neurology, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine

" I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 35 years and Dr. Wahls has given me a handle on my disease.  Anyone who is concerned with their health, whether or not they have a chronic disease, should read her work.   Dr. Wahls has given me something that my doctors cannot…hope."

-Lydia Rawlings, MS patient

“I am an Iowa transplant to NJ who has been living with MS for 10 years now.  Last winter I was diagnosed with PML and IRIS.  I became bed ridden and could barely talk... Over the last six months I have been following [Dr. Wahls’] book and reading her newsletters with interest.  I have gone from a bed, to a wheelchair, to a walker, to a cane, and now nothing.  I still have a little hitch in my walk but I am excited to report that I am almost back to normal...”

-Andrew J Nelson, Mechanical Engineer 

"I have the good fortune to have Dr. Wahls as a physician in the Polytrauma Clinic at the local VA... I can tell the difference in my ability to think quickly and clearly when I follow the protocol as opposed to when I am eating the way I used to eat. For me, I am making a lifetime commitment to keeping the protocol going because the of the positive mental changes."
--Diane Bekel,Iraq War Veteran

"I got lucky. I was hosting a series of talks for Dr. Wahls and heard what she said about how food literally makes up what we are. I started to think about how the effect of food on cells was universal--how nutrients affect every cell in every person, sick or not. And, all of a sudden, it just made sense. I looked at my own diet and made a few changes. After just a month on Dr Wahls’ diet, I went from a diagnosis of infertility to conceiving a child! My body began to repair itself on the inside. She has a remarkable message to share with us: We are what we eat. I believe it."   
--Genie Maybanks

"Dr. Wahls' programs are lively, challenging and very beneficial. She is able to take complicated information and have the average person take away health-improving concepts that can transform their life for the better forever. You can leave her program and start making changes the very next day. Positive, inspirational, and enjoyable!!”

--Janet Slimak, Program Director, Kirkwood Community College Continuing Education


Dr. Terry L. Wahls is an academic general internal medicine physician who has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Her M.S. confined her to a life of dependence on a tilt-recline wheelchair for 4 years. But 18 months after starting her intensive, focused nutrition and electrical therapy to strengthen her muscles, Dr. Wahls now commutes to work 5 miles each way on her bicycle.
