Dr. Terry Walhs, a Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and clinical professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa, was wheelchair-bound due to her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. But not just wheelchair bound – she was beholden to her tilt-recline wheelchair. Dr. Walhs used her knowledge of functional medicine to create a protocol for herself. The result?

She rides her bike to work now. Every day. That’s right – no more wheelchair. How? Through key diet and lifestyle changes. No magic pill. No drug trials. Just plain old fashioned diet and lifestyle. You may not believe it, but seeing Dr. Wahls walking without aid today paints quite a contrast from her days in her wheelchair, and seeing is believing.

Dr. Wahls has turned her life’s work into helping complete strangers living with MS do what she did: beat the disease. The Wahls Protocol is a diet and lifestyle program that has helped thousands of people to restore their health from MS. In her best selling books, she gets specific about the treatment and discusses how she identified 31 micronutrients that the mitochondria need to function. These foods provide key nutrients for her “9 Cups Daily” protocol:

3 cups of leafy greens3 cups of sulfur-rich vegetables (i.e cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, garlic, etc.) 3 cups colorful vegetables and fruits.

She’ll be talking all about it on The Doctors this coming Thursday, February 6th, so tune in! In the meantime, you can visit Dr. Wahls’ website to download her free diet cheat sheet to start implementing her advice today.

If you or someone you know suffers from MS, suffer no more. Get on The Wahls Protocol, and beat MS.

 The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle!

Consider featuring pastry chef turned healthy chef Lauren Lobley and her new cookbook, “The Accidental Paleo” in your outlet.  Lauren’s got a great concept that you don’t want to miss.  What if you want to go Paleo but you don’t eat meat?  What if you want to go Paleo but you are a vegetarian?  Lauren’s got you covered!

Vegetarian. Vegan. Paleo. Can you be all three?

Lauren Lobley, former pastry chef turned healthy chef, thinks yes. 

Don’t miss her debut cookbook, The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle! 

So, you want to change your diet for insert-reason-here. You’re vegetarian friend got great results from cutting out meat, and your vegan friend’s skin has never looked better. But your paleo friend is now lean and looking like a super athlete, and you’re left thinking: I want all of that! How is one to choose? What if you like the concept of eating like our ancestors but don’t really have a taste for meat most of the time? What if you don’t want to go completely vegetarian, but you like the idea of eating fewer animal products?

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO (FEBRUARY 2, 2017, Primal Blueprint Publishing) is spearheading a new movement in the world of food. The foodie landscape in one where dietary groups have a cult-like following and affinity for their particular eating principles. But like life, diet isn’t always that cut and dry. We go through phases where sometimes, we crave meat and lots of it. Sometimes, we can’t stomach it. Sometimes, we just want to eat plants and lots of them.

How is one to choose? What if you like the concept of eating like our ancestors but don’t really have a taste for meat most of the time? What if you don’t want to go completely vegetarian, but you like the idea of eating fewer animal products?  Read how Lauren “accidentally,” wrote a cookbook to satisfy all those inbetweeners…


Making her debut on the cookbook scene, Lauren Lobley, former pastry chef and head baker to Food Network star, Duff Goldman, gave up her pastries for healthy food almost ten years ago. For the first 25 years of her life, she was a carnivore. But things changed, and at times she has been a vegan, vegetarian, lacto-ovo, pescatarian, paleo, and/or some combination of all of them. After years of testing, she has found her sweet spot:  Vegetarian Paleo.



  • Eating for health and longevity: there were almost 8 million vegetarians in the US in 2008, with another almost 23 million Americans following a vegetarian “inclined” diet.” And according to an article in Shape Magazine last year, if anyone was going to try a new diet, it was going to be the Paleo one.
  • But for those who are skating the line between paleo and vegetarian – and even vegan – there is good news:  You can have it all. And here’s a bonus: most experts agree that the single best thing you can do to ensure you live a longer, healthier life is to eat a more plant-based diet. We already spend about $300 billion a year on pharmaceutical drugs to treat diseases that are mostly preventable through diet. Something has to give.

“You have a responsibility to try and be as healthy as possible. I decided to pick the diet (a plant-based diet) that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival. You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country.” – President Bill Clinton

In THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO, Lauren has compiled her favorite vegetarian paleo recipes into one user-friendly, something-for-everyone cookbook. Lauren takes a carnivore’s approach to plant-based eating. By being mindful of textures, layers of flavor, colors, and nutrition in every concoction, the recipes in this book are designed to satisfy every palate, whether they prefer their meals with or without meat.

The desserts are refined sugar free (and in most cases, naturally sweetened, like the almond butter banana cheesecake), the appetizers trick the palate with their clever use of nuts and plant-based milk to feign a creamy texture (like the warm spinach and artichoke dip – to die for), and the main meals carefully build upon an array of vegetables and sauces to leave everyone full and satiated (like the butternut squash lasagna).

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO is culinary fun for the whole family, and a sure fire way to ensure the health and longevity of you and your loved ones. A feast for the eyes and the taste buds, get ready to fall in love with plant-based eating like you never imagined you would. And rejoice in the fabulous fact that when it comes to being vegetarian or paleo, you don’t to choose. You can have it both ways.

Featured Recipes:
Breakfast: Paleo Banana Walnut Blueberry Pancakes
Appetizers and Snacks: Grapefruit Strawberry Mango Guacamole
Dinner: Walnut Shiitake Mushroom Tacos
Spreads: Beet Sunflower Seed Pesto
Dessert: Salted Dark Chocolate Goji Berry Almond Bark

The Power of Food and Fitness for Kids with Tourette Syndrome

Tune into the Doctor’s TV Show to Hear Danielle Natoni’s Story! (Friday, November 3, 2017)

If anyone knows how food and fitness can dramatically improve the quality of life for a child who suffers from Tourette syndrome, it’s our client Danielle Natoni, a school teacher turned fitness influencer. From the start, Danielle could tell Bianca was a unique kid. She marched to the beat of her own drum. However, as her daughter grew up, Danielle started to notice symptoms of Tourette’s appear in Bianca.

Tourette syndrome is a nervous system disorder involving repetitive movements or unwanted sounds. When Bianca was about 7, Danielle started noticing rapid eye movements, things like blinking, which then turned into shoulder shrugs and other symptoms. Little did Danielle know that her fitness and health journey would end up helping her daughter too.

A friend of Danielle’s who happens to have Tourette syndrome, (she met through fitness) helped Danielle come to the conclusion that her daughter had Tourettes. When Danielle would mention that Bianca was experiencing more tics than usual she asked Danielle, “did she have a lot of gluten today?” Danielle started to notice a direct response to her daughter eating foods with gluten, chemicals, sugars, and how often she had an episode.

Changes in Bianca’s nutrition and fitness regime ended up being the secret to managing her Tourette’s symptoms.

Currently, Tourettes is impacting a large number of children and parent’s don’t know how to help manage Tourette symptoms with their kids. A study for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 1 of every 360 children between the age of 6-17 in the United States has been diagnosed with Tourette syndrome.

Here’s How Danielle used food and fitness to take her daughter from funky to fabulous:

  • No gluten: Gluten increased tics in Bianca. Living a gluten-free diet helped decrease her Tourette’s symptoms.  Danielle offers an array of vegetables instead.

  • Fitness: Danielle noticed that during Bianca’s volleyball matches and games that she would not tic. The more her body moved, the less she seemed to tic. This physical activity also made her body so tired that she was able to sleep more. Danielle incorporated her fitness expertise as an influencer as motivation for her daughter.

  • Limited sugars, even those that are natural: Danielle found out that a ketogenic approach to treatments stopped people from having seizures, which is a neurological issue like Tourette syndrome. Therefore, Danielle decided to experiment with limiting her sugar intake and noticed a drastic decrease in Bianca’s tics. Danielle eliminating sodas and juices from Bianca’s diet to even limiting the amount of fruit Bianca eats.

  • Chewing gum. Danielle added a quick fix into Bianca’s routine with chewing gum. Danielle gets the healthiest version at the store and has found that giving gum after school helps to calm her down after a long day and somehow calmed the tics.

  • Limit screen time: Danielle noticed a direct correlation to how long she was staring at the iPad or iPhone to how often she ticked.

Food and fitness are extremely important aspects of managing Tourette’s, as well as other disorders/syndromes such as ADHD, Autism and so on. Limiting screen time, getting adequate sleep, removing gluten, sugars, focusing on a whole food-based diet and movement helps kids dealing with all different types of issues. However, these are not talked about enough.
